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   36348   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5989   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of melatonin on bother related to nocturia.

    Secondary objectives are to evaluate: 1) Mean night time urinary frequency 2)Volume of urine voided at night 3)Incontinence and other lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) 3)Quality of sleep 4) Quality of life 5) Sleep disturbance of partners 6)Safety
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The primary outcome will be evaluated at the end of 6 weeks of Melatonin treatment (week 8 of the study).
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1) Improvement in mean night time urinary frequency assessed from the frequency volume chart and a standardised validated questionnaire, ICIQ-N
    2) Improvement in the Nocturnal polyuria index, percentage of volume of urine voided at night, calculated from the frequency volume chart.
    3) Improvement in overall lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), assessed by standardised validated questionnaires, ie. USP, SF Qualiveen
    4) Improvement on sleep disturbances and First uninterrupted sleep period (the time interval between going to bed with the intention of sleeping to waking up for the first void), assessed using a standardised validated questionnaire, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, and Parkinson’s disease sleep scale, sleep diary and Actigraphy
    5) Quality of life measured by EQ5D

    6) Sleep disturbance in partners/careers assessed by sleep diary and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index
