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   41470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6815   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    All safety evaluations will be summarized as interval or categorical summaries as appropriate. The overall incidence of adverse events, together with the top three most frequently reported adverse events, will be analyzed using a binary logistic model to demonstrate differences between the treatment groups and placebo.
    The end points include alls Adverse events (AEs), Serious adverse events (SAEs), Clinical Diagnostics, Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature), ECG, Laboratory assessment (hematology, biochemistry, coagulation, serology and urinalysis), Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), MRI scans (analyzed by a central reader)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Changes between baseline and end of study visit (26 weeks)
    Unterschiede zwischen den Werten bei der Baseline und der letzten Visite (26. Woche)
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    All exploratory efficacy variables will be analyzed at the endpoint (Final visit). The analyses will involve the change from baseline in the NTB composite summary Z score calculated after 6 months (26 weeks) of treatment. This will involve an Analysis Of Covariance Variance (ANCOVA) model incorporating the baseline score and country as covariates.

    Additional analyses will involve evaluation of the time course of treatment response over the treatment period, using a repeated measures mixed model Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) for evaluation. 18F-Pet Scan variables will be analyzed in a descriptive and exploratory manner. Categorical endpoints will be analyzed using a Cochran Mantel-Haenszel (CMH-row mean scores difference), chi-squared test or Logistic regression models (as appropriate).
