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   36119   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5940   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.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Delivery < 37 completed weeks’ gestation (powered)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Date of delivery
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    i) Adverse perinatal outcome, defined as a composite outcome of death (antepartum/intrapartum stillbirths plus neonatal deaths prior to discharge from neonatal services) or one (or more) of intraventricular hemorrhage, periventricular leukomalacia, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, necrotizing enterocolitis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and sepsiS.
    ii) Delivery <30 & 34 completed weeks’ gestation.
    iii) Gestation at delivery.
    iv) Time between intervention and delivery.
    v) Requirement for Rescue Cerclage (bulging fetal membranes).
    vi) Other maternal and fetal outcomes: clinical course, therapies administered, maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality data.
    vii) Participant and clinician’s perceptions of treatment: questionnaires with a selection of participants at 0-2 weeks post procedure. Questionnaires at one year are planned if funding is obtained Participant and clinician adherence to protocol
    i) Health costs at 28 days post-natal.
    ii) Biochemical end-points (if performed): endocervical swabs will be taken to determine the presence of cervico-vaginal infection and concentrations of biomarkers of preterm birth, infection and inflammation. Saliva samples will be collected for salivary hormone levels, and blood samples taken for inflammatory markers and genetic analysis. Results will be correlated with maternal and fetal outcomes.
