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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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)
    Subject preference of 3 flavors of the ESL suspension will be assessed using:
    • The 10 cm visual analog scale.
    • The subject’s assessment of the overall taste (best, worst).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    After tasting and spitting out each sample the child will be asked to rate the taste on a 10 cm visual analogue scale incorporating a facial hedonic scale.

    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Safety:
    • Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) defined as all adverse events (AEs) with onset or worsening after an accidental swallowing of study treatment until 1-4 days after tasting the IMP
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    A follow-up interview will be performed between 1 and 4 days after the study day to collect adverse event data.
