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   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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 confirm that treatment with semaglutide does not result in an unacceptable increase in cardiovascular risk as compared to a pooled comparator group (including placebo and active comparators) in adults with type 2 diabetes. This is done by demonstrating that the upper limit of the 95% confidence interval (CI) of the hazard ratio for semaglutide versus comparators is less than 1.8 when comparing in a meta-analysis time to first occurrence of a major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) using all MACEs accrued from all subjects included in all of the confirmatory phase 3a clinical trials.
    Confirmar que el tratamiento con semaglutida no provoca un aumento inaceptable del riesgo cardiovascular comparado con un comparador combinado, que incluye placebo y comparadores activos, en adultos con diabetes de tipo 2. Para ello, se intentará demostrar que el límite superior del intervalo de confianza (IC) del 95% del cociente de riesgos instantáneos para la semaglutida comparada con los comparadores es inferior a 1,8 cuando se compara en un metanálisis del tiempo transcurrido hasta la primera aparición de un acontecimiento cardiovascular adverso importante (MACE) utilizando todos los MACE acumulados a partir de todos los sujetos incluidos en todos los estudios clínicos confirmatorios en fase 3a.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the long-term safety and efficacy of semaglutide 0.5 mg and 1.0 mg once weekly compared to placebo, both added on to standard of care, in adults with type 2 diabetes at high risk for cardiovascular events.
    Evaluar la seguridad y eficacia a largo plazo de semaglutida 0,5 mg y 1,0 mg una vez a la semana comparada con placebo, ambos añadidos al tratamiento convencional en adultos con diabetes de tipo 2 y riesgo cardiovascular elevado.
