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   37989   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6231   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.

    24. Conditions/situations such as:
     Any clinically significant abnormality identified at the time of screening that in the judgment of the investigator or any sub-investigator would preclude safe completion of the study or constrain assessment of endpoints, such as major systemic diseases or patients with short life expectancy.
     Patients considered by the investigator or any sub-investigator to be inappropriate for this study for any reason, eg:
    o Those patients deemed unable to meet specific protocol requirements, such as scheduled visits.
