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   42758   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   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.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Retained placenta
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    After a baby is born, the placenta (afterbirth) should be delivered. Sometimes this does not occur and the placenta gets stuck. This medical condition is called a retained placenta.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary research objectives of the internal pilot RCT are:
    1) To demonstrate trial processes for approaching women, gaining consent, randomising, treating and assessing outcomes are optimal, and to implement improvements as required;
    2) To determine achievable recruitment rates;
    3) To determine the likely effect size, to inform a calculation on whether the planned sample size can be reduced whilst maintaining study power;
    4) To pilot and modify if required the post-partum questionnaires (assessment of patient satisfaction and collection of health service use outcomes).

    The primary research objectives of the substantive GOT-IT RCT are:
    1) To determine the clinical effectiveness of sublingual GTN in treating RP and avoiding MROP in women with vaginal delivery following failure of current management (defined as a third stage of labour lasting more than 30 mins after active management or 60 mins after physiological followed by active management respectively) (clinical domain);
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objective is to assess NHS costs in relation to the primary outcome and range of secondary outcomes expected to differ between arms of the trial, using a cost-consequence balance sheet approach.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Women with Retained Placenta.
    - Women aged 16 or over.
    • Women with vaginal delivery (including women with a previous caesarean section).
    • Haemodynamically stable (systolic blood pressure more than 100mg Hg and pulse less than 110 beats per min).
    • > 14 weeks gestation.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Unable to give informed consent.
    • Suspected placenta accreta/increta/percreta.
    • Multiple pregnancy.
    • Women having an instrumental vaginal delivery.
    • Allergy or hypersensitivity to nitrates or any other constituent of the formulation.
    • Taken alcohol in the last 24 hours.
    • Concomitant use with phosphodiesterase inhibitors (such as sildenafil, tadalafil, or vardenafil).
    • Currently participating in another CTIMP.
    - Contra-indication due to one of the following: Severe anaemia, constrictive pericarditis, extreme bradycardia, incipient glaucoma, Glucose-6-phosphatedehydrogenase-deficiency, cerebral haemorrhage and brain trauma, aortic and / or mitral stenosis and angina caused by hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Circulatory collapse, cardiogenic shock and toxic pulmonary oedema.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary outcomes will be measured over four interrelated domains of clinical, safety, patientsided
    and economic.
    1) Clinical: need for MROP, defined as the placenta remaining undelivered 15 minutes
    post study treatment and/or being required within 15 minutes of treatment due to
    safety concerns.
    2) Safety: measured blood loss between administration of treatment and transfer to the
    postnatal ward or other clinical area (e.g. labour ward high dependency).
    3) Patient-sided: satisfaction with treatment and side effect profile assessed by
    questionnaire. It will be informed by our qualitative studies and based on
    questionnaires we have previously used to assess satisfaction.[22]
    4) Economic: Net incremental costs (or cost savings) to the National Health Service of
    using GTN versus standard practice. Costs will include GTN (dose and time to
    administer drug, monitor woman and deliver the placenta if effective), MROP, and
    further health service resource use to six weeks postnatal (as measured by the health
    service resource use questionnaire).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Please see timepoints specified above.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary outcomes will be measured over two interrelated domains of clinical and economic
    outcomes. The feasibility of the collection of secondary outcomes will be tested during the
    internal pilot phase.
    1) Clinical outcomes:
    i) Fall in haemoglobin of more than 15% between recruitment and the first postnatal
    ii) time from randomisation to delivery of placenta;
    iii) MROP in theatre;
    iv) need for earlier than planned MROP on the basis of the clinical condition;
    v) fall in systolic or diastolic blood pressure of more than 15mmHg and/or increase in
    pulse of more than 20 beats/minute between baseline and 5 and 15 minutes postadministration
    of active/placebo treatment;
    vi) need for blood transfusion between time of delivery and discharge from hospital;
    vii) need for general anaesthesia;
    viii) maternal pyrexia (one or more temperature reading of more than 38°C within
    72hrs of delivery or discharge from hospital if discharge occurs sooner);
    ix) sustained uterine relaxation after removal placenta requiring uterotonics;
    2) Costs: The mean costs will be summarised by treatment allocation group, and the
    incremental cost (cost saving) associated with the use of GTN will be estimated using
    an appropriately specified general linear model. The cost data will be presented
    alongside the primary and secondary outcome data in a cost-consequence balance
    sheet, indicating which strategy each outcome favours.
    There are no secondary patient-sided or safety outcomes.
