Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43846   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    PK parameters (Cmax and area under the plasma concentration-time curve [AUC])
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    On Day 1, subjects will receive oritavancin and four PK samples will be collected over 24 hours. An additional three PK samples will be collected 48, 72, 336 hours after the infusion start time (total number of samples = 7).
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. PK parameters (half-life [t1/2], tmax, volume of distribution [Vz], and CL).

    2. Safety of an oritavancin infusion assessed according to clinical laboratory parameters, and adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), vital signs and ECG up to 60 days following termination of the study drug infusion.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    On Day 1, subjects will receive oritavancin and four PK samples will be collected over 24 hours. An additional three PK samples will be collected 48, 72, 336 hours after the infusion start time (total number of samples = 7).

    Safety and tolerability will be assessed by physical examination, 12-lead ECG, vital signs, safety labs (hematology and chemistry). Cerebral spinal fluid will also be collected for subjects in the age cohort of 0-28 days to assess oritavancin levels (only if collected as part of the subject’s routine medical care).

    Subjects/Caregivers will also be contacted by phone at Day 60 to collect any adverse events/serious adverse events that may occur between Day 14 and Day 60.
