Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43800   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    - Sottopunteggio Mayo modificato per la frequenza delle evacuazioni pari a 1-3.
    - Sottopunteggio Mayo modificato per il sanguinamento rettale pari a 0-2.
    - Sottopunteggio endoscopico Mayo modificato pari a 2-3.

I soggetti che assumono 5-ASA e/o agenti immunomodulanti verranno stratificati opportunamente. Sono vietati anche altri farmaci (ad es. antibiotici, farmaci antiepilettici e anticoagulanti).
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary endpoint is the proportion of subjects with clinical remission at the End of Treatment Visit (Visit 7). As shown in the table below, clinical
    remission is defined as the Modified Mayo Total Score of 0 to 2, with, stool frequency sub-score of 0 or 1 (minimum 1 point decrease from
    baseline), rectal bleeding sub-score of 0 and endoscopic sub-score of 0 or 1.
    L'endpoint primario è la percentuale di soggetti con remissione clinica alla Visita di fine trattamento (Visita 9). Come mostrato nella tabella seguente, la remissione clinica è definita come il punteggio Mayo totale modificato pari a 0-2, con un sottopunteggio della frequenza
    delle evacuazioni pari a 0 o 1 (diminuzione di almeno 1 punto dal basale), un sottopunteggio del sanguinamento rettale pari a 0 e un sottopunteggio endoscopico pari a 0 o 1.
