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   36603   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6045   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.

If dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) occur in fewer than 3 of these patients per cohort, the next cohort of 6 patients (cohort 2, 3 and 4) will be N+1 up to cohort 4. If at any time during cycle 1 of a dose cohort, > 2 subjects experience a drug-related DLT, the MTD will have been exceeded, additional enrolment within the cohort will cease, and dose escalation will stop. The MTD will be defined as the dose level below which DLT is observed in >33% (i.e. > 2 of 6) subjects in a cohort.
