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   38937   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6396   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.

    Patients completing the treatment period will not be given further access to study drug because the risk/benefit ratio will not yet have been substantiated and there are already other marketed therapeutic alternatives available to treat these patients. At the time of study completion or early termination, all patients will be placed on the appropriate asthma treatment as prescribed by the investigator.
