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   38003   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6235   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)
    Drug exposure to golimumab will be evaluated using serum trough level concentrations measured using a commercially available ELISA produced by Theradiag (LISA TRACKER) at weeks 6 and 10. Clinical UC disease activity will be evaluated using SCCAI with the following definitions:

    Remission SCCAI ≤ 2
    Response SCCAI ≤ 5, with a decrease by ≥ 2
    Relapse SCCAI ≥ 5 (following a response)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Weeks 6 and 10
