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   35342   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5785   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is a composite of three principal aPL-related adverse pregnancy outcomes: one or more pregnancy loss(es) (either < 10 weeks gestation or beyond 10 weeks of gestation of a morphologically normal fetus documented by ultrasound or by direct examination of the fetus) and premature birth of a morphologically normal neonate before 34 weeks due to any of: pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, recognised features of placental insufficiency
    Premature birth for other reasons will not be included.
    The components of the primary endpoint will each be presented as secondary endpoints.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The primary endpoint is a composite outcome of complications during pregnancy and post partum. Therefore, timepoints of evaluation for the primary outcome will be during pregnancy and up to 6 weeks post partum.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The pre-defined secondary endpoints include:
    1. Pregnancy loss < 10 weeks gestation
    2. Pregnancy loss > 10th week of gestation of a morphologically normal fetus documented by ultrasound or by direct examination of the fetus
    3. Premature birth of a morphologically normal neonate < 34 weeks due to any of: pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, recognized features of placental insufficiency.
    4. Gestational age at delivery
    5. Birth weight
    6. Delivery by Caesarean section
    7. Apgar score < 7 at 5 min
    8. Neonatal morbidity (bleeding or thrombotic complications, infections, congenital abnormalities)
    9. Days to hospital discharge following delivery (mother & child)
    10. Thrombotic events in the mother during pregnancy and 6 weeks post-partum.
    11. Days of neonate in special care
    12. Safety and tolerability of hydroxychloroquine in the mother and in the neonate
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The secondary outcome consists of all composite endpoints variables in addition to further post partum complications. Therefore, timepoints of evaluation of the secondary outcome will be during pregnancy and up to 6 weeks post partum.
