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   43691   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7245   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 primary objective of this prospective open label study is to assess the ability of vedolizumab to promote clinical, endoscopic and histological remission in patients with active Crohn's disease in an 'early' and a 'late' disease population after 54 weeks of treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Measures of clinical disease activity (including clinical response and remission) over the 1 year study period will be described. The mucosal healing capacity of vedolizumab treatment will be observed by assessing the endoscopic and histopathologic response to treatment over the 1 year study period.
    The additional endoscopic healing effect of dose intensification at month 6 will also be studied after approval of amendment 4
