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   42867   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7062   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Hypophosphatasia is a rare inborn error of bone metabolism caused by inactivating mutations in the gene encoding the Tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase isoenzyme.
    With deficiency of Tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase, there is a buildup of extracellular inorganic pyrophosphate, which inhibits mineralization of bone matrix.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Hypophosphatasia a bone disorder caused by genetic changes called mutations. These gene mutations result in low levels of an enzyme needed to harden children's bones.
