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   43977   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To characterize the pharmacokinetics of subcutaneous tocilizumab (SC TCZ) in participants with polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (pJIA).
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study was conducted in full conformance with the principles of the “Declaration of Helsinki” or with the laws and regulations of the country in which the research was conducted, whichever affords the greater protection to the individual. The study fully adhered to the principles outlined in “Guideline for Good Clinical Practice (GCP)” International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) Tripartite Guideline and ensured compliance with the EU Clinical Trial Directive [2001/20/EC]. Approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Independent Ethics Committee (IEC) and the relevant Competent Authority was obtained before study start.

    Change From Baseline in Serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6) Levels
    End point description
    IL-6 is a cytokine associated with disease activity in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) including the pJIA subset. It is found in high levels in the synovial fluid and is associated with indicators of inflammatory activity. Here n refers to the number of participants analyzed at specific time point. The analysis was performed in safety population. Safety population included all participants who received at least one dose of treatment and who had at least one post-dose safety assessment. Here number of subjects analyzed represents participants evaluable for this outcome measure and "n" represents participants evaluable for the specified category. 99999 represented data not analysed as no participants were evaluable. 9999 represented data was not available as only single participant was evaluated.
