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   36119   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5940   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of V114 with respect to the
    proportion of participants with adverse events (AEs)

    - To evaluate the anti-pneumococcal polysaccharide (PnPs) serotype-specific Immunoglobulin G (IgG) Geometric Mean Concentrations (GMCs) at 30 days postvaccination (Day 30) for each vaccination group.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To evaluate the anti-PnPs serotype-specific opsonophagocytic activity (OPA) Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) at 30 days postvaccination (Day 30) for each vaccination group.
    - To evaluate the anti-PnPs serotype-specific Geometric Mean Fold Rises (GMFRs) from prevaccination (Day 1) to 30 days postvaccination (Day 30) for both OPA and IgG responses for each vaccination group
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Merck will conduct Future Biomedical Research on DNA (blood and saliva) specimens collected during this clinical trial. Such research is for biomarker testing to address emergent questions not described elsewhere in the protocol (as part of the main trial) and will only be conducted on specimens from appropriately consented subjects. The objective of collecting specimens for Future Biomedical Research is to explore and identify biomarkers that inform the scientific understanding of diseases and/or their therapeutic treatments. The overarching goal is to use such information to develop safer, more effective drugs, and/or to ensure that subjects receive the correct dose of the correct drug at the correct time.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
