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   40633   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6629   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess whether IM Hydrocortisone Injection site using deltoid muscle is equally effective to thigh muscle during the state of hypocortisolaemia in patients with cortisol deficiency assessed by serum cortisol profiles
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To investigate any differences in pain perception using differences sizes of needles, muscle groups (deltoid versus thigh) and hydrocortisone preparations (Solu-Cortef vesus Hydrocortisone 100mg/ml)
    To understand if circumference of injections site and patient's BMI affect hydrocortisone absorption
    To assess following nurse education on hydrocortisone self-injection whether the patient is able to self-inject during their state of hypocortisolaemia
    To assess if the number of taught self-injections has an impact of patient's quality of life.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Age 18-70 inclusive
    2. Written informed consent obtained prior to any study related assessments/procedure being conducted.

    Hypocortisolaemia symptoms and ability to self-inject
    Hydrocortisone preparations and ability to self-inject
    AddiQoL scores and ability to self-inject
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Injection site measurement will be taken immediately after the injection
    BMI will be collected on screening visit.
    Leftover of hydrocortisone in ampoules will be measured after patient has administered the injection.
    Pain score will be collected immediately after the injection then at 1 hour, 8 hours and 72 hours post injection.
    Symptoms for hypocortisolaemia will be collected before hydrocortisone injection then at 6 hours
    The name of the hydrocortisone will be recorded after each injection.
    AddiQoL score will complete AddiQoL at baseline visit and at the end of the study or when they decided to terminate from the study
