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   35185   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5753   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.

    A Double-Blind, Double-Dummy, Randomized, Two-arm, Multicenter Study Comparing the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Oral Dydrogesterone 30 mg daily versus Intravaginal Micronized Progesterone Capsules 600 mg daily for Luteal Support in In-Vitro Fertilization
    A.3.1Title of the trial for lay people, in easily understood, i.e. non-technical, language
    A study to compare if 30mg of oral Dydrogesterone is as good, tolerable and safe as 600mg of intravaginal capsules for luteal support in IVF pregnancies. This study will be conducted at several study sites and neither the patient or the doctor will know which of the two different treatments a patient will receive.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to demonstrate non-inferiority of oral dydrogesterone 10 mg TID versus micronized progesterone vaginal capsules 200 mg TID. The primary efficacy parameter is the presence of fetal heart beats at 12 weeks’ gestation determined by transvaginal ultrasound.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives and parameters are a positive pregnancy test on Day 14 after embryo transfer, the incidence of live births and healthy newborns.
    The safety objective is to obtain safety and tolerability data by means of documentation of treatment emergent adverse events (TEAE) during the entire study period. In addition, data on vital signs, physical examination findings, and routine laboratory values will be obtained. Furthermore, signs and symptoms of threatened abortion, the rate of hypospadias and the rate of masculinization in female babies will be recorded. The time of delivery (pregnancy week) and the following parameters of the newborn will be obtained at delivery: gender, APGAR Score, weight, height, head circumference, abnormal findings of physical examination and any malformations.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy parameter is the pregnancy rate defined as the presence of fetal heart beats at 12 weeks’ gestation determined by transvaginal ultrasound.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    12 weeks’ gestation
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary parameters are a positive pregnancy test on Day 14 after embryo transfer, the incidence of live births and healthy newborns.
