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   40633   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6629   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.

    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a disorder of adrenal steroid
    synthesis leading to cortisol deficiency and an increase in androgen
    production.Treatment in children consists of hydrocortisone substitution
    thereby also restoring the negative feedback on the pituitary gland and
    consequently normalize androgen production. There is still no evidence
    about the best timing of hydrocortisone use: The highest dosage of
    hydrocortisone in the morning or the highest dosage at night
    Het adrenogenitaal syndroom (AGS) is een aangeboren ziekte van de
    bijnier, die veroorzaakt wordt door een tekort van het enzym 21-
    hydroxylase, dat nodig is voor de productie van hormonen in de bijnier.
    Door een tekort aan dit enzym wordt onvoldoende cortisol
    (stresshormoon) en tegelijkertijd een overmaat aan mannelijke
    hormonen (androgenen) in de bijnier gemaakt.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    CAH is an inherited disease of the adrenal gland with ad deficiency of cortisol and aldosterone. Current treatment consists of lifelong replacement of
    synthetic glucocorticoids.
    het adrenogenitaal syndroom is een ziekte van de bijnier met een tekort
    aan hormonen cortisol en zouthormoon. behandling bstaat uit het
    toedienen van deze hormonen

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To study the effects of 2 standard treatment timing strategies for glucocorticoid dosage on androgen concentration in CAH children: a. highest dosage in the morning, b. highest dosage in the evening.
    Wij willen graag evalueren welke van de 2 behandelopties leidt tot de
    beste onderdrukking van bijnier androgenen.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    12 hours blood pressure and activity
    and sleeping patterns during the 2 treatment strategies.

    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    17-hydroxyprogesterone and androstenedione levels measured in saliva

    strategies. We will compare differences in levels of 17 OHP and A.
    between the 2 dose schedules.
