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   42564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the failure rate of urinary catheter withdrawal achieved between J2 (midnight) and J3 (morning) of treatment, requiring a urinary catheter re-installation in the following 72 hours. The failure rates of early bladder catheter withdrawal is estimated at J6.
    Le critère de jugement principal est le taux d'échecs du retrait de sonde vésicale réalisé entre J2 (minuit) et J3 (matin) du traitement, nécessitant de reposer une sonde vésicale dans les 72h suivantes. Le taux d'échecs du retrait de sonde vésicale précoce est évalué à J6.
    On appelle un échec du retrait de sonde vésicale, la récidive du globe urinaire suspectée par la clinique, la radiologie (bladder-scan, échographie) et confirmée par un volume vésical supérieur à 400 ml, selon la quantification du volume recueilli à la repose d'une sonde urinaire.

    The failure rates of early bladder catheter withdrawal is estimated at J6 of treatment
    Le taux d'échecs du retrait de sonde vésicale précoce est évalué à J6.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Percentage of symptomatic and asymptomatic nosocomial urinary infections on a urine collection in case of symptoms and systematic at J6.
    2. Percentage of orthostatic hypotension searched systematically before starting treatment, at D3 and D6, and at any time in case of postural symptoms (dizziness, blurred vision, faintness or syncope).
    3. Number of days of hospitalization in both groups
    1. Pourcentage d’infections urinaires nosocomiales symptomatiques et asymptomatiques sur un recueil urinaire en cas de symptômes et systématique à J6.
    2. Pourcentage d’hypotensions orthostatiques recherchées de façon systématique avant l’instauration du traitement, à J3 et à J6, et à n’importe quel moment en cas de symptôme postural (sensation vertigineuse, trouble visuel, lipothymie ou syncope).
