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   41499   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6826   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.

    A.3Full title of the trial
    A double-blind, placebo-controlled, escalating-dose study of the effect of N-003 on renal function, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability in patients with advanced liver disease.
    A.3.1Title of the trial for lay people, in easily understood, i.e. non-technical, language
    Study to see if N-003 has an effect in helping a patient with a very sick liver to remove water from the body, a common cause of accumulation of water in the abdomen. Also, the study will see which dose of N-003 is more effective as determined by using several different tests and to examine the safety and tolerability of N-003 in these patients.
