Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   38876   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6392   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy parameter is the feasibility of TachoSil® application on esophageal anastomoses, which is assessed by 2 investigators who will evaluate video recordings. Feasibility is measured by the adherence and location of the TachoSil® patch, defined according to the following criteria:
    • Adherence of complete TachoSil® patch
    • TachoSil® covers at least 1 cm beyond the margins of anastomotic line
    • Overlap of at least 1 cm if multiple patches are used
    De primaire uitkomst maat is het onderzoeken van de haalbaarheid van het aanbrengen van tachosil op oesofageale anastomosen. Dit zal onderzocht worden door 2 onderzoekers aan de hand van video opnames. De haalbaarheid wordt geobjectiveerd door de mate van het vasthechten van tachosil en de locatie van tachosil, gedefineerd als:
    • Vasthechten van complete tachosil patch
    • Tachosil bedekt minimaal 1 cm voorbij de anastomose
    • Patches overlappen minimaal 1cm, indien meerdere patches worden gebruikt.
