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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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.

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    If a subjects blood pressure response to amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide is more favourable than the response to sodium restriction, and subjects tolerate the drugs well, this medication could be continued after the study stops. Normally, the combination amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide is not prescribed to patients with chronic kidney disease in stages 3 or 4.
    Als de bloeddruk van een patient tijdens de studie beter reageert op amiloride/hydrochloorthiazide dan op zoutarm dieet, en patiënten verdragen de middelen goed, kan deze medicatie na het stoppen van de studie eventueel worden gecontinueerd. Normaal gesproken wordt amiloride/hydrochloorthiazide niet gebruikt bij patienten met chronische nierinsufficientie graad 3 of 4.
