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   37556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6160   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of single ascending oral doses of XEN-D0501, (1, 2 and 4 mg) versus placebo in type 2 diabetic patients in treatment with metformin.
    Det primære formål med studiet er at undersøge sikkerheden og tolerabiliteten (bivirkningsprofilen) af en enkelt oral dosis af XEN-D0501 i tre forskellige styrker (tabletter à 1, 2 og 4 mg) i forhold til en ikke-aktiv kontrol (placebo) i patienter med type 2 sukkersyge, der i forvejen er i behandling med metformin uden god nok effekt på blodsukkeret.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Besides it is the purpose of this trial to identify the optimal dose for later clinical trials to study the efficacy of XEN-D0501 in patients with type 2 diabetes with the aim of developing a novel type of type 2 diabetes.
    Det er desuden hensigten med dette studie at finde den optimale dosis til senere kliniske studier, hvor vi gerne vil undersøge effekten af XEN-D0501 i patienter med type 2 diabetes med henblik på at udvikle XEN-D0501 til behandling af type 2 diabetes.
