Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Part 1 and 2: (1)Evaluate the effect of CVC compared to placebo on liver histology relative to the Screening biopsy for the proportion of subjects with improvement in fibrosis by at least 1 stage (NASH CRN system), regardless of effect on steatohepatitis (months 12 and 60, as applicable).
    Part 1 and 2: (2)Evaluate the safety and tolerability of CVC for the treatment of liver fibrosis in adult subjects with NASH.
    Part 2: (3)Evaluate the effect of CVC compared to placebo on liver histology relative to the Screening biopsy for the proportion of subjects with improvement in fibrosis by at least 1 stage (NASH CRN system), AND no worsening of steatohepatitis (no worsening of lobular inflammation or hepatocellular ballooning grade), (months 12 and 60, as applicable)).
