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   35213   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5757   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Organ Dysfunction and Failure in Traumatic Hemorrhage
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Organ failure following severe injury-induced critical bleeding
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Injuries, poisonings, and occupational diseases [C21]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine whether Artesunate is safe and effective in treating severely-injured patients with traumatic haemorrhage in addition to the current standard management.



    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    We have discovered that when administered at small doses upon resuscitation, the anti-malarial drug Artesunate reduces multiple organ failure in rodent models of traumatic hemorrhage. We now wish to conduct a Phase 2a clinical trial aimed at testing the safety and effectiveness of Artesunate in patients with trauma and severe haemorrhage.

    In the first phase of the study, we wish to administer Artesunate to patients with trauma-haemorrhage at an identical dose to that used for the treatment of malaria (i.e. low dose; 2.4mg/kg). Although in malaria Artesunate is repeatedly administered every 12 hrs, we propose to inject only one dose. Provided an interim analysis demonstrates no concerns with safety of Artesunate, we will proceed to administer a higher dose of Artesunate (i.e. 4.8 mg/kg) to examine whether the higher dose is more effective in improving outcomes following trauma haemorrhage, whilst still being safe to give to patients.
