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   37219   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6124   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary objective:
    To show that the variability of whole blood total and unbound plasma tacrolimus concentrations during the first 6 days post transplantation is larger than the variation of tacrolimus concentrations in stable clinical situation.

    Primaire doel:
    Het aantonen dat de variabiliteit van volbloed totale en ongebonden plasma tacrolimus concentraties gedurende de eerste dagen na transplantatie groter is dan de tacrolimus concentraties in een stabiele klinische situatie

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives:
    • To show that unbound tacrolimus plasma concentrations can better predict the occurrence of renal dysfunction than whole blood total tacrolimus concentrations.
    • Identification of variables influencing the unbound tacrolimus plasma concentrations.
    • To evaluate whether variations in tacrolimus concentrations in the first days after lung transplantation in cystic fibrosis patients are higher than without cystic fibrosis.

    Long-term objective:
    • The data will be used to develop a kinetic model in the future in order to dose tacrolimus more accurately to prevent adverse effects of tacrolimus.
    Secundaire doelen:
    • Aantonen dat de ongebonden tacrolimus plasma concentraties nierfunctiestoornissen better voorspellen dan volbloed totale tacrolimus concentraties
    • Het identificeren van variabelen die de ongebonden tacrolimus plasma concentraties beïnvloeden
    • Aantonen dat de variaties in tacrolimus concentraties in de eerste dagen na long transplantatie in cystic fibrose patiënten groter zijn dan zonder cystic fibrose

    Lange termijn doel:
    • De data zullen gebruikt worsen om een farmacokinetisch model te maken in de toekomst ter verbetering van het doseren van tacrolimus om bijwerkingen van tacrolimus te voorkomen.
