Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43931   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To investigate in a pilot study the safety and efficacy of common diagnostic sulfur hexafluorid MBs on the beginning, degree, and time to maximum completeness of middle cerebral artery (MCA) recanalization during systemic thrombolysis and continuous 2-Hz pulsed-wave TCD monitoring.
    Evaluar la seguridad y eficacia del tratamiento con sonotrombolisis potenciado con MB en pacientes con infarto cerebral agudo
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1 To investigate whether the administration of ST plus MB treatment leads to an increase in the proportion of patients with MCA ischemic stroke that achieve an early clinical improvement (decrease in 4 or more points at at 24 h NIHSS) and good long-term functional outcome (Modified Rankin Scale 0-1 at 3 months), when compared to patients treated with standard treatment.

    2 To assess the safety of ST plus MB treatment, in terms of mortality and of Hemorrhagic transformation rate (symptomatic and asymptomatic), within the first 3 month after treatment. Death from any cause will be recorded.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    The main inclusion criteria will be:
    - All acute (<4,5 hours) ischemic stroke patients in the MCA territory (as depicted by head computed tomography CT or suspected by clinical data) with a disabling neurological deficit measurable by National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score, that in the opinion of treating physicians require and meet accepted criteria of treatment with a standard 0.9mg/kg dose of iv rtPA.
    - A documented occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) documented by TCD and/or angioCT.
    -The patient or the legal representative signs the written consent to participate
    -Age ? 18 years
    -No significant improvement before treatment.
    -The treatment is initiated within 90 minutes of hospital admission (door-to-needle time ? 90 minutes)
    -There is no limitation regarding the NIHSS score. Scores under 5 are usually considered mild strokes, but they can be treated if the investigator believes that the measured deficit is important enough to cause disability. The investigator should weight benefits and risks when the score is under 5 and above 22.
