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   42867   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7062   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    measures (failure rate <1% when used consistently and correctly) or
    agree to abstain from sexual intercourse (Refer to Section 4.3).
    4. Subject must meet the diagnostic criteria of nOH, as demonstrated by a sustained reduction in BP of ≥20 mmHg (systolic) or ≥10 mmHg
    (diastolic) within 3 min of being tilted up to ≥60o from a supine position as determined by a tilt table test.
    5. Subject must score at least a 4 on the Orthostatic Hypotension
    Symptom Assessment Question #1 at randomization visit.
    6. For subjects with PD only: Subject has a diagnosis of PD according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society (UKPDS) Brain Bank Criteria (1992).

    autonomic reflexes, including the Valsalva maneuver performed within 24 months from the date of randomization.
    9. Subject has plasma NE levels >100 pg/mL after being in seated
    position for 30 minutes.
    10. Subject is willing and able to provide signed and dated written
    informed consent to participate prior to initiation of any study related procedures.
    11. Subject is able to communicate well with the Investigator and clinic staff, understands the expectations of the study and is able to comply with the study procedures, requirements, and restrictions.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Subject has a known systemic illness known to produce autonomic
    neuropathy, including but not limited to amyloidosis and autoimmune
    neuropathies. Subject has diabetes mellitus and diagnosis of PAF.
    Subject with diabetes mellitus and either MSA or PD, will be evaluated
    on a case by case basis by the medical monitor and considered ineligible
    unless they meet all of the following criteria:
    a. Well controlled type-2 DM in treatment with only oral medications and
    b. HgbA1C of ≤7.5% performed during screening or up to 12 weeks
    before screening
    c. No clinically evident peripheral neuropathy (e.g., normal sensory
    examination on peripheral extremities)
