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   42330   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.

    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    The enrolled subjects will get an intravenous cannulation in both elbows. The subject will get before xylocaine spray is placed, the intervention-arm, one intravenous cannulation in one of the elbows, the other intravenous cannulation is placed in de other arm before placebo spray is placed, the control arm. The pain score during insertion of de cannulation, the incidence of adverse events and the success rate and degree of difficulty to place an intravenous cannulation.
    Er worden bij de geïncludeerde personen in beide elleboogsplooien infusen ingebracht. Er zal aan de proefpersonen worden gevraagd om de pijnscore tijdens het inbrengen van het infuus te noteren, tevens wordt er gekeken naar het optreden van bijwerkingen, de succespercentage en moeilijkheidsgraad bij het prikken van een infuus.
