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   43841   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7281   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
    To confirm the efficacy of levetiracetam (LEV) at doses of 1 and 3 g/day in reducing seizure frequency in patients with partial epilepsy not fully controlled despite treatment with 1 to 3 concomitant Anti-epileptic drugs (AED(s)), and to evaluate the efficacy of LEV at doses of 0.5 and 2 g/day compared to Placebo (PBO).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    * To evaluate a dose-response relationship of LEV at doses of 0.5, 1, 2 and 3 g/day and Placebo (PBO), in reducing seizure frequency in patients with partial epilepsy not fully controlled despite treatment with 1 to 3 concomitant AED(s).
    * To evaluate the safety and tolerability of LEV at doses of 0.5, 1, 2 and 3 g/day in a placebo-controlled manner, in patients with partial epilepsy not fully controlled despite treatment with 1 to 3 concomitant AED(s).
