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   42758   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    •changes from baseline (day 0 of the Phase 3 pivotal efficacy studies) in vital signs (pulse, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and oral temperature) measurements
    Note: Oxygen saturation will be measured in cases of suspected anaphylaxis and severe hypersensitivity. Respiratory rate will also be measured in these cases but not as a standard vital sign.
    •abnormal standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) findings
    •clinically significant changes in physical examination, including body weight
    •occurrence of injection site reactions (ie, erythema, induration, and ecchymosis) and injection site pain
    •occurrence of anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions
    •use of concomitant medications during the study
    •suicidal ideation and behavior as measured by the electronic Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (eC-SSRS)

    •Cambios respecto al valor de referencia (día 0 de los estudios de eficacia pivotales de fase 3) en las mediciones de las constantes vitales (pulso, tensión sanguínea sistólica y diastólica y temperatura oral).
    Nota: Se medirá la saturación de oxígeno en aquellos casos en los que se sospeche anafilaxia e hipersensibilidad intensa. En estos casos, también se medirá la frecuencia respiratoria, pero no como constante vital estándar.
    •Resultados anómalos en un electrocardiograma (ECG) estándar de 12 derivaciones.
    •Cambios con transcendencia clínica en la exploración física, incluido el peso corporal.
    •Aparición de reacciones en la zona de inyección (eritema, induración y equimosis) y dolor en la zona de inyección.
