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   37219   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6124   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.

    Carotid stenosis
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Blockage of arteries in the neck
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Cardiovascular Diseases [C14]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    In people who have partial blockage of the major vessels in the neck, which can be linked to stroke, does treatment with Evolocumab change the size and composition of that blockage, as determined by MRI scanning?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    We will monitor effects of Evolocumab on blood tests parameters such as cholesterol, and also record if participants suffer strokes, heart attacks, or related conditions during the study.

    We will also assess change in size and composition of the partial blockage of the major neck vessels as determined by ultrasound.
