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   43694   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7248   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective of the trial is to examine whether enrichment of a fat graft with autologous ASC injected into the breast tissue using traditional technique of ‘small aliquot-injection’ will significantly improve take of the graft and the result of a breast augmentation. The trial will compare fat grafting enriched with ex vivo expanded stem cells to the conventional fat grafting.
    Formålet med studiet er at undersøge hvorvidt berigelse af et fedttransplantat med opformerede autologe adipøst-deriverede stamceller øger overlevelsen af et fedttransplantat efter injektion i et underudviklet bryst. Hvis dette viser sig at være tilfældet forventes det, at resultaterne at kan anvendes til at forbedre den aktuelle behandling af patienter med tidligere brystkræft.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Screening of radiological changes in the breast after conventional and stem cell-enriched fat injection as based on MRI and mammography.
