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   43973   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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.

    There will be two optional substudies: a pharmacogenomic substudy and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) substudy. For subjects consenting to the genomics, genetics, and proteomics substudy, blood samples and stool samples will be drawn for exploratory genetic/epigenetic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomics analysis and for candidate exploratory biomarker analyses. For subjects participating in the MRI substudy further sacroiliac joint and spine MRIs will be performed.
    Il y aura 2 sous-études opionnelles: une sous-étude de pharmacogénétique et une sous-étude d'imagerie par résonnance magnétique (IRM). Pour les patients ayant consentis à la sous-étude de génomiques, génétiques, et protéomiques, des échantillons sanguins et des échantillons de selles seront prélevés pour des explorations génétique/épigénétique, génomique, protéomique, et des analyses métabolomiques et des analyses de recherche de biomarqueurs exploratoires pour les candidats. Pour les patients participants à la sousétude IRM, des IRMS additionennelles des articulations sacro-iliques et rachidiennes seront effectuées.
