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   40665   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6637   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.

    -Mental condition rendering the patient or parent/guardian unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study.
    -Clinically relevant cardiovascular, hepatic, neurological, endocrine, or other major systemic disease making implementation of the protocol or interpretation of the study results difficult or that would put the patient at risk by participating in the study in the opinion of the Investigator.
    -History of drug or alcohol abuse.
    -History of known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positivity.
    -Pregnant or breast-feeding female patients or those who plan to become pregnant during the study.

    -Previous treatment with alemtuzumab
    -Treatment with natalizumab, daclizumab, fingolimod, methotrexate, azathioprine, cyclosporine, or mycophenolate mofetil in the last 6 months prior to screening, or as determined by the treating physician to have residual immune suppression from these or other MS treatments.

Use of an investigational medication that was subsequently licensed and nonstandard use of a licensed medication (eg, using a dose other than the dose that is stated in the licensed product labeling or using a licensed therapy for an alternative indication) is not exclusionary. Prior treatment with herbal medications or nutritional supplements is also permitted.

    -Major psychiatric disorder that is not adequately controlled by treatment in the opinion of the Investigator.
    -Epileptic seizures that are not adequately controlled by treatment.
