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   41191   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the study is to investigate the effects of fludrocortisone versus placebo on the attention bias in a pooled group of depressive patients and healthy control subjects (measured by the „Attentional bias index“ in the emotional dot probe paradigm)
    Primäres Ziel der Studie ist es, in der gepoolten Gruppe depressiver Patienten und gesunder Probanden die Effekte von Fludrocortison vs. Placebo zu untersuchen auf die Aufmerksamkeitsverzerrung (gemessen mit dem „Attentional Bias Index“ im emotionalen Dot-Probe-Paradigma; primärer Endpunkt)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives of the study are to investigate:
    - the effects of fludrocortisone versus placebo on emotion recognition in faces (“Facial recognition task”), empathy (“Multifaceted empathy task”), and spatial memory (“Virtual Water-Maze paradigm”) in a pooled group of depressive patients and healthy control subjects
    - the effects of a combined administration of fludrocortisone and D-cycloserin versus a single administration of fludrocortisone or D-cycloserin on attention bias, emotion recognition in faces, empathy, and spatial memory in a pooled group of depressive patients and healthy control subjects
    Sekundäre Ziele sind zum einen, in der gepoolten Gruppe depressiver Patienten und gesunder Probanden die Effekte von Fludrocortison vs. Placebo zu untersuchen auf:
    - Emotionserkennung in Gesichtern (Facial Recognition Task)
    - Empathie (Multifaceted Empathy Task)
    - räumliches Gedächtnis (Virtual Water-Maze Paradigma)

    und zum anderen in der gepoolten Gruppe depressiver Patienten und gesunder Probanden zu untersuchen, ob die kombinierte Gabe von Fludrocortison und D-Cycloserin einer einmaligen Gabe von Fludrocortison bzw. einer einmaligen Gabe von D-Cycloserin überlegen ist hinsichtlich der vier Zielvariablen
    - Aufmerksamkeitsverzerrung
    - Emotionserkennung in Gesichtern
    - Empathie
