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   37995   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6234   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To assess the anti-psoriatic efficacy and safety of the combination of LAS41004 (bexarotene plus betamethasone dipropionate) in a topical formulation by reference to Daivobet® ointment (calcipotriol plus betamethasone dipropionate)
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study was conducted in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements, as well as the general principles set forth in the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) Guidelines for Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and applicable local regulatory requirements and laws. As such, screening assessments were performed after the patient had agreed to participate and had signed and dated the informed consent form, and safety and tolerability were evaluated throughout the study by monitoring of adverse events, performing laboratory tests and physical examinations, and measuring vital signs
