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   43444   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7185   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.

    After study treatment has been terminated due to disease progression or toxicity, post trial treatment will not differ from the expected normal treatment of that condition and will depends on ivestigator´s and patient's choice. Three-monthly telephone interviews will be conducted with patients not undergoing further therapy at the participating centers to record overall survival status and further therapeutic interventions such as additional chemotherapies or local-ablative measures.
    Nach Ende der Studientherapie aufgrund von Progression oder inakzeptablen Toxizitäten wird sich die weitere Behandlung nicht vom üblichen Vorgehen im Rahmen dieses Krankheitsbildes unterscheiden und vom behandelnden Arzt und dem Patienten individuell festgelegt. Wenn die die Weiterbehandlung nicht am Studienzentrum erfolgt, werden aller 3 Monate Telefoninterviews bzgl. Überleben und weiteren therapeutischen Interventionen, wie bspw. Chemotherapien oder lokal-ablativen Maßnahmen durchgeführt.
