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   37209   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6122   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To establish the efficacy of 1.8 mg liraglutide compared to liraglutide-placebo in reducing glycemic variability and achieving glycemic control during 16 weeks treatment before surgery and 48 weeks (week 4 to 52) treatment after gastric bypass surgery for morbid obesity complicated by DM2.
    De effectiviteit van 1.8 mg liraglutide te vergelijken met placebo in het verminderen van glycemische variabiliteit en controle gedurende 16 weken behandeling voor bariatrische chirurgie en 48 weken (week 4 tot 52) na behandeling middels een gastric bypass voor morbide obesitas gecompliceerd door type 2 diabetes.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To establish the efficacy of 1.8 mg liraglutide compared to liraglutide-placebo in inducing a change in body weight, cardiovascular risk profile and patient reported outcomes (quality of life, eating behaviour and dumping syndrome score).

    To establish a biobank containing blood (plasma), DNA, subcutaneous and visceral fat, as well as gastro-intestinal tissues with the intention to future research on the effects of liraglutide on adipose tissue and gastro-intestinal endocrine cells.
    De effectiviteit van 1.8 mg liraglutide te vergelijken met placebo in het induceren van een verandering in lichaamsgewicht, cardiovasculair risicoprofiel en door de patient zelf gerapporteerde uitkomstmaten zoals kwaliteit van leven, dumpingklachten en eetgedrag.

    Een biobank te maken met bloed (plasma) monsters, DNA, subcutaan en visceraal vet en gastrointestinaal weefsel met de bedoeling daarmee toekomstig onderzoek te kunnen doen naar de effecten van liraglutide op vetweefsel en entero-endocriene cellen.
