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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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.

    ● Pharmacokinetic study, including basal plasma levels of efavirenz at the beginning and end of study.
    ● Safety study, including: test on sleep quality (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index), levels of vitamin-D 25OH, estimated glomerular filtration rate (CPK-EPI) and lipids (triglycerides, total cholesterol and HDL) plasma at the beginning and at end of study and overall tolerability.

    ● Estudio farmacocinético, que incluye los niveles plasmáticos basales de efavirenz al principio y al final del estudio.
    ● Estudio de seguridad, que incluye: test sobre calidad de sueño (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index), niveles de vitamina 25OH-D, tasa de filtrado glomerular estimada (CPK-EPI) y lípidos (triglicéridos, colesterol total y HDL) plasmáticos al principio y al final del estudio, así como la tolerabilidad general.
