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   42782   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7047   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The purpose of this protocol is to generate a set of data that will be analysed by integrated systems biology approach, for validation in subsequent clinical trials or in animal models. The dataset will broadly characterise:
    1. Physiological responses at various time points after immunisation
    2. Metabolic, innate and adaptive immune responses
    3. Genetic testing of subjects when deemed necessary (genetic testing analysis may be SNIP analysis or full genome analysis).
    4. Correlations in changes in innate and adaptive immune activation and metabolism with adverse events, haematology and biochemistry panels, genotype and physiological assessments.

    All samples will be biobanked for the duration of the BIOVACSAFE programme so that we can selectively analyse different samples and different time points depending on the results generated, principally from the gene expression analysis of whole blood.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
