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   38161   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6268   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 following PK parameters will be estimated for MK-1439:

    AUC0-last: The area under the analyte concentration versus time curve, from time zero (0) to the time of the last measurable analyte concentration (t), as calculated by the linear up/log down trapezoidal method

    AUC0-inf: The area under the analyte concentration versus time curve from time zero to infinity. AUC0-inf = AUC0-last + Cp/Kel, where Cp is the predicted analyte concentration at the time of the last measurable analyte concentration

    C24hr: The concentration of the analyte in plasma at 24 hours post administration

    Cmax: Maximum measured analyte concentration over the sampling period

    Tmax: Time of the maximum measured analyte concentration over the sampling period

    Kel: The apparent first-order elimination rate constant

    T½: The apparent elimination half-life

    CL/F: Apparent total plasma clearance of drug after oral administration (CL/F = Dose/AUC0-inf)

    Vd/F: Apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase after oral drug administration (Vd/F = Dose/[AUC0-inf*Kel])
