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   38869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6391   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.

    • Etanercept: within 28 days prior to randomization
    • Infliximab, adalimumab, golimumab, certolizumab pegol: within 42 days prior to randomization.
    Treatment with RA-directed biologic agents with non- TNF-α antagonist mechanisms without adequate washout as follows:
    • Anakinra: within 28 days prior to randomization
    • Abatacept: within 42 days prior to randomization
    • Rituximab or other cell depleting agent: Within 6 months prior to randomization or until total lymphocyte count and CD 19+ lymphocyte count are normalized, or whichever is longer.
    Prior treatment with a janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor (eg, tofacitinib).
    Patients with a history of invasive opportunistic infection.
