Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43440   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7185   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The rate of vaginal deliveries.

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At the delivery
    A l'accouchement
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. The triggering of failure
    The failure of the trigger is the lack of work setting: remaining cervical dilation <3cm despite 8am Syntocinon (or 1 syringe) and lack of regular uterine contractions and amniotomy. The success of the trigger is defined by regular uterine contractions and cervical dilatation ≥ 3 cm.

    2. Criteria of maternal morbidity and mortality:
    - Duration of work: time in minutes between the start of work defined by the onset of regular uterine contractions and cervical dilatation of ≥3 cm and childbirth.
    - Caesarean indications
    - Proportion of instrumental delivery
    - Proportion of complications of delivery and the various supported.
    - Proportion of uterine rupture
    - The transfer to intensive care
    - Duration of hospital stay of the mother
    - maternal death

    3. Criteria fetal morbidity and mortality:
    - Apgar score at 3, 5 and 10 min
    - Assessment of fetal acidosis umbilical arterial pH and lactate
    - The presence of amniotic fluid meconium
    - The share transfer in neonatology or neonatal resuscitation
    - Fetal / neonatal death
    1. L’échec du déclenchement
    L’échec du déclenchement correspond à l’absence de mise en travail : dilatation cervicale restant < 3cm malgré 8h de Syntocinon® (ou 1 seringue) et absence de contractions utérines régulières et d’amniotomie.
    Le succès du déclenchement est défini par des contractions utérines régulières et une dilatation cervicale ≥ 3 cm.
    2. Critères de morbi-mortalité maternelle :
    - Durée du travail : durée en minutes, entre le début du travail défini par la survenue de contractions utérines régulières et d’une dilatation cervicale ≥3 cm et l’accouchement.
    - les indications de césarienne
    - la proportion d’extraction instrumentale
    - la proportion de complications de la délivrance et les différentes prises en charge.
    - la proportion de rupture utérine
    - le transfert en réanimation
    - la durée d’hospitalisation de la maman
    - le décès maternel

    3. Critères de morbi-mortalité fœtale :
    - score d’Apgar à 3, 5 et 10 min
    - évaluation de l’acidose fœtale : pH artériel ombilical ou lactates
    - présence de liquide amniotique méconial
    - la proportion de transfert en néonatalogie ou réanimation néonatale
    - décès fœtal / néonatal
