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   41190   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to determine whether DMF taken over 12 months is effective in reducing MS related fatigue, as measured by mean changes in the Fatigue Scale for Motor and Cognitive Functions (FSMC), in subjects with RRMS.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To investigate changes from Baseline in FSMC and fatigue severity (Fatigue Severity Scale [FSS]) at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months in subjects receiving DMF

    To assess the impact of DMF on patient reported outcomes (PROs), including work productivity (Work Productivity and Activity Impairment-Multiple Sclerosis questionnaire [WPAI-MS]), health-related quality of life (Short Form Health Survey [SF-12] or the 15-dimensional health-related quality of life [15D HRQoL] questionnaire), depression (Beck Depression Inventory-Fast Screen [BDI-FS]), and sleepiness (Epworth Sleepiness Scale [ESS]) at 6 and 12 months in subjects receiving DMF

    To examine whether an association exists between fatigue and baseline demographics (e.g., age and sex) and disease characteristics (e.g., disease duration, baseline disease activity, treatment history, expanded disability status scale [EDSS] score, and PROs)

    To assess any changes in fatigue-related medication use
