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   43843   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome is a composite clinical measure of placental dysfunction (preeclampsia, preterm birth less than 34 weeks, birth weight below the 10th centile or perinatal mortality), with individual components measured as follows:
    -Preeclampsia:
    Hypertension (i) greater than or equal to 140mmHg systolic or greater than or equal to 90mmHg diastolic on two occasions at least 4 hours apart after 20 weeks’ gestation in a woman with a previously normal blood pressure.
    Or (ii) greater than or equal to 160mmHg systolic or greater than or equal to 110mmHg diastolic (such hypertension can be confirmed within a short interval (minutes) to facilitate timely antihypertensive therapy.
    And
    Proteinuria: Greater than or equal to 300mg per 24-hour urine collection, or a urinary protein: creatinine ratio greater than or equal to 0.3 or +3 proteinuria on dipstick urinalysis.
    Or in the absence of proteinuria, new-onset hypertension with the new onset of any of the following:
    • Thrombocytopenia (platelet count less than 100,000/microliter)
    • Renal insufficiency (serum creatinine concentrations greater than 97umol/L or a doubling of the serum creatinine concentration in the absence of other renal disease)
    • Impaired liver function (elevated blood concentrations of liver transaminases to twice normal concentration)
    • Pulmonary oedema
    • Cerebral or visual symptoms
    Blood pressure will be measured at all study visits. Urine will be examined by dipstick analysis at all prenatal study visits. Urinary protein-creatinine ratio or 24-hour quantitation will be evaluated at the first study visit (visit 1, and thereafter at visits 3,5,7, and 9-16, or at any intervening study visit or patient encounter where +1 proteinuria or more is identified on dipstick urinalysis.
    Full blood count (platelet count), liver profile and serum renal profile (urea and creatinine) will be measured at the first study visit (visit 2) and thereafter at any study visit or patient encounter where the patient is found to be hypertensive (as per above definition).
    -Birth weight less than the 10th percentile for gestational age:
    Birth weight will be measured on the day of birth and plotted on standard WHO UK RCPCH growth charts (per gender).
    -Preterm birth less than 34+0 weeks:
    Gestational age at birth will be verified with respect to the Estimated Date of Delivery calculated at the first study visit. The accuracy of gestational age will take into account menstrual dates, IVF dates where applicable, and sonographic estimation of gestational age determined at the first study visit (prior to 12 weeks’ gestational age). In accordance with conventional principles for pregnancy dating, where a discrepancy of greater than 5 days exists between the menstrual-dates-derived EDD and the sonographic measurement of crown-rump length prior to 12 weeks’ gestational age, the ultrasound-derived EDD will apply.
    -Perinatal mortality:
    Stillbirth or neonatal death after 24 completed weeks of gestation and within 28 days of birth.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Blood pressure will be measured at all study visits. Urine will be examined by dipstick analysis at all prenatal study visits. Urinary protein-creatinine ratio or 24-hour quantitation will be evaluated at the first study visit (visit 1, and thereafter at visits 3,5,7, and 9-16, or at any intervening study visit or patient encounter where +1 proteinuria or more is identified on dipstick urinalysis.
    Full blood count (platelet count), liver profile and serum renal profile (urea and creatinine) will be measured at the first study visit (visit 2) and thereafter at any study visit or patient encounter where the patient is found to be hypertensive (as per above definition).
    Birth weight will be measured on the day of birth
    Gestational age at birth
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Parameters of neonatal morbidity:

    • Birth weight (recorded (in grams) on the day of birth)
    • NICU admission (requirement to be admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for any purpose other than routine antibiotic administration)
    • Respiratory morbidity: A diagnosis of respiratory morbidity will be considered for any infant requiring invasive or non-invasive respiratory support, supported by radiographic criteria where available and length of oxygen-dependence will be recorded. For infants requiring respiratory support, the following variables will be recorded:

In addition to cord pH, the first infant pH will also be recorded, if obtained.
    • Intracranial haemorrhage: Evidence of bleeding within the intraventricular or periventricular areas of the neonatal brain, identified with cranial ultrasound or alternate imaging.
    • Culture-proven sepsis: A diagnosis of neonatal sepsis will be made when appropriate clinical features are confirmed by positive microbiological cultures.
