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   35474   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5826   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.

    As soon as more data on safety and efficacy of bimekizumab become available, the current AS0009 study will either be amended to have a longer duration or the subjects completing this study may be transitioned to a different bimekizumab study as described in the protocol. In addition, there are other products already available that are approved for the same indication, therefore patients will not be without treatment alternatives once they are off of the bimekizumab study.
