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   43839   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7280   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.

Additionally, the patient’s Hgb level must meet either of the following criteria:
    • Hgb level is ≥ 12 g/dL at the treatment assessment endpoint (defined as mean value from Weeks 23, 25, and 26), or
    • Hgb increased ≥ 2 g/dL from baseline (defined as the last Hgb value before administration of the first dose of study drug) at treatment assessment endpoint
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Week 26 (EOT)
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •Mean change from baseline in bilirubin (excluding patients with Gilbert’s Syndrome) at the treatment assessment endpoint (mean of values at Week 23, 25, and 26)
    •Mean change from baseline in QOL, as assessed by the change in Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue scale scores at the treatment assessment endpoint
    •Mean change from baseline in lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) at the treatment assessment endpoint
    •Number of transfusions and number of units after the first 5 weeks of study drug administration
