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   40657   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6636   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Postural sway will be assessed using a force plate. Change in Anterio-posterior (AP) sway between perindopril and placebo groups as measured at baseline and end of 15 weeks treatment.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Baseline - 0 weeks
    End - 15 weeks
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •Static postural stability measures: Change in Mediolateral sway, average sway velocity and total sway area after 15 weeks of treatment
    •Dynamic postural stability: Change in Limits of Stability (LOS) after 15 weeks of treatment with perindopril compared to placebo
    •Quadriceps strength: Change in sometric quadriceps maximum voluntary contraction strength (QMVC) after 15 weeks of treatment with perindopril compared to placebo
    •Falls : Difference in falls rates, between the perindopril and placebo groups. This study is not powered to determine this accurately but such information will provide important safety information as well as providing preliminary data for powering a future study.
    • Magnetic femoral nerve stimulation (subset of participants who consent, only): Change in the greatest twitch tension generated in the quadriceps (TwQ) using magnetic femoral nerve stimulation after 15 weeks of treatment with perindopril compared to placebo. Iimprovement in Endurance and fatigue using repeated QMVC after 15 weeks of treatment with perindopril compared to placebo.
