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   43936   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7310   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.

    Abdominal pain response: decrease in weekly average of worst abdominal pain score in the past 24 hours of at least 30% compared with baseline (2-week Run-in period);
    NOTE: “Worst abdominal pain score in the past 24 hours” hereafter will be called “abdominal pain intensity”.
    Stool consistency response: decrease of at least 50% in the number of days per week with at least one stool that has a consistency of Type 6 or 7 compared with baseline (2-week Run-in period).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
