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   36780   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6074   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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To describe the clinical response of a treat-to-target principle in early axSpA and explore the possibility of drug-free remission.
    - To evaluate the relation between the presence of (subclinical) gut inflammation and the therapeutic response to anti-TNFα in patients with axSpA.
    - To evaluate the relationship between (subclinical) gut inflammation on the one hand and remission induction and relapse on the other hand in patients with axSpA.
