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   37978   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6230   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome of this study is to determine if there is a significant difference in the proportion of patients with cyst resolution at 6 weeks post treatment in those treated with polidocanol sclerotherapy compared to cryotherapy and infra-red coagulation.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Subjects will be reviewed as currently standard after 6-8 weeks. All participants will be reviewed again at 12-24 weeks, with scoring of discomfort and satisfaction of those who have undergone a second treatment. All participants will be reviewed finally at about 52 weeks.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Patient will be reviewed at 6, 12 and 52 weeks to assess for cyst resolution, failure to respond, or recurrence.

    At 6, 12 and 52 weeks the degree of any scarring will be assessed.

    At 6 weeks, subjects will asked to assess the degree of pain and discomfort experienced.

    At 6 weeks subject’s satisfaction will be assessed.

    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Subjects will be reviewed as currently standard after 6-8 weeks.
    All patients will be reviewed again at 12-14 weeks. All patients will be reviewed for a final time at about 52 weeks.

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    If this study shows a difference with polidocanol, we plan to apply for polidocanol to be added to the Lothian Joint Formulary and Fife formulary for use for DMC.

    Polidocanol will be given on 1 or 2 occasions in those allocated to that group and is not considered to be an ongoing treatment. If DMC persist, patients will be offered surgical referral as per standard care.
