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   38484   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6324   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
    (1) To evaluate the efficacy of a 3-dose regimen of V260 against rotavirus gastroenteritis of any severity caused by rotavirus serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and Gserotypes associated with serotype P1A (including G9) occurring at least 14 days following the third dose in healthy Japanese infants.
    (2) To assess the safety of V260 with respect to all adverse experiences occurring within 14 days of any dosing in healthy Japanese infants.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    (1) To evaluate the efficacy of a 3-dose regimen of V260 against moderate to severe and severe rotavirus gastroenteritis caused by rotavirus serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and those associated with serotype P1A occurring at least 14 days following the third dose.
    (2) To evaluate the efficacy of a 3-dose regimen of V260 against rotavirus gastroenteritis (moderate-severe, severe, and any severity, respectively) caused by any rotavirus serotype occurring at least 14 days following the third dose.
    (3) To evaluate the cumulative efficacy following the first dose of a 3-dose regimen of V260 against rotavirus gastroenteritis (moderate-severe, severe, and any severity, respectively) caused by i) rotavirus serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and those associated with serotype P1A, and by ii) any rotavirus serotype.
