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   37733   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6184   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 compare progression free survival (PFS) between the 2 arms
    • To determine quality of life in the two study arms
    • To determine treatment response on neoadjuvant chemotherapy
    • To compare morbidity of surgery and resection rate between the 2 arms
    • To evaluate whether CEA can predict for treatment response, PFS and OS
    • Het vergelijken van de ziekte-vrije overleving tussen de 2 studiegroepen
    • Het bepalen van de kwaliteit van leven in de 2 studiegroepen
    • Het objectiveren van de respons op neo-adjuvante chemotherapie
    • Het vergelijken van de morbiditeit van chirurgie en aantal resecties tussen de 2 studiegroepen
    • Evalueren of CEA spiegel: de respons op therapie, ziekte-vrije overleving en overleving kan voorspellen
