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   37767   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6190   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Chronic intestinal failuyre (IF) is caused by large surgical bowel resection, severe motility, or absorption diseorders. These patientds require partial or total parenteral nutrition (PN and TPN, respectively) and are thereby critically dependent on maintaining venous acces withj central venous catheter (CVC). CVC-related thrombosis is a frequent and serious complication that leads to catheter failure and is associated with CVC-infections and sepsis.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Parenteral nutrition via central venous catheter is essential in patients unable to receive nutrition by oral intake or enteral tube feeding. Catheter-thrombosis is an important complication.
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Cardiovascular Diseases [C14]
