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   35865   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5890   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.

    •To evaluate the effect of sera from CHF patients on DMT-1, FPN, HCP-1, HRG-1, and FLVCR2 protein expression on Caco-2 duodenal cell lines.
    •To compare the change in serum iron levels 3 hours after oral FeSO4, Globifer Forte® or placebo tablets (oral absorption test).
