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   43202   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7150   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.

    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    We are not investigating a medical condition as such, but the effect of vitamin D on offspring body composition and bone mass, which are risk factors for later ill health.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To improve maternal vitamin D levels and body composition assessed by DXA at birth, in infants born to women who have been randomised to receive vitamin D supplements or placebo, and further randomised to receive behaviour change support in pregnancy by trained nurses or to receive usual care.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To collect data on interim outcomes for the women and infants, including breast feeding at two weeks, pregnancy weight gain, quality of diet and self-efficacy for feeding themselves and their children assessed at 14 weeks and 34 weeks of pregnancy, and to conduct a detailed process evaluation of the intervention and compliance, including recruitment and retention of participants, exploration of staff experiences of supporting women to change their health behaviour, and the costs and benefits for women of changing their health behaviour.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Women will be eligible for the study if they: • attend the Princess Anne Hospital for nuchal lucency scans between 9 and 17 weeks gestation (based on LMP and dating scan); • are aged over 18 years; • have a singleton pregnancy; • are aiming to give birth at local maternity hospital.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Women will be excluded from the study if they: • have known metabolic bone disease or chronic disease known to be associated with bone disease; • are taking part in another research study; • are taking medication likely to interfere with intrauterine growth (corticosteroids, anticonvulsants, PTH, bisphosphonates, more than 6 months GnRH analogues); • show fetal physical anomalies on the 12 week scan (likely to influence bone mass on DXA or interfere with skeletal development); • are unable to provide informed consent or comply with the trial protocol; • have a history of renal stones, hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcaemia or known hypercalcuria; • have a diagnosis of cancer in the last 10 years.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Vitamin D status in women.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Maternal 25(OH)-vitamin D levels will be assessed in blood samples taken during the 34th week of pregnancy.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Body composition of infants Maternal weight gains in pregnancy Rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration Dietary quality of women Self-efficacy of women
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Body composition of infants will be measure by DXA within 2 weeks of birth. Maternal weight will be tracked through pregnancy.
