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   37577   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6160   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the safety and efficacy of treatment with VX-371 in hypertonic saline (HS) compared to HS alone in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are greater than or equal to (>=) 12 years of age, homozygous for the F508del-cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutation, and being treated with Orkambi.
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study was conducted in accordance with the ethical principles stated in the Declaration of Helsinki and the International Council on Harmonization (ICH) Guideline for Good Clinical Practice (GCP).

    Notes
    [1] - The number of subjects starting the period is not consistent with the number completing the preceding period. It is expected the number of subjects starting the subsequent period will be the same as the number completing the preceding period.
    Justification: Not all the subjects who completed treatment period 1 entered treatment period 2. That is why the number of subjects starting treatment period 2 is not consistent with the number of subjects completing the treatment period 1.
