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   43233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7153   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.

    At the end of the study, subjects will be placed on standard of care per Investigator's clinical judgment in consultation with the study subject's physician. Subjects that prematurely discontinue from the study will be treated in accordance with the Investigator's clinical judgment.
    Al termine della Sperimentazione, i soggetti verranno trattati secondo pratica clinica come da giudizio clinico del medico sperimentatore in accordo con il parere del medico che ha seguito il soggetto nel corso della sperimentazione. In caso di interruzione anticipata dalla sperimentazione i soggetti verranno trattati secondo parere clinico del medico sperimentatore.
