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   42881   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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.

    - Must have 1 or more upper extremity muscle groups untestable (e.g., immobilized or restricted by a cast) during the screening ISNCSCI examination.
    - Known history prior to randomization of clinically significant medical or surgical conditions (other than current acute SCI) or any other reason, including any physical, psychological, or psychiatric condition that in the opinion of the Investigator would compromise the safety or interfere with the subject's participation in this study, or would make the subject an unsuitable candidate to receive study drug, or would put the subject at risk by participating in the study, including history of or abnormal screening lab or imaging results that, in the opinion of the investigator, are indicative of any irreparable cardiac, endocrinologic, hematologic, hepatic, immunologic, infectious, metabolic, urologic, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, dermatologic, psychiatric, renal, neurologic, and/or other major disease that would preclude administration of elezanumab.
    - Known receipt of any other investigational product within 30 days or 5 half-lives of the drug (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug or is currently enrolled in another clinical study.

    - Que el sujeto haya recibido cualquier otro producto en investigación en los 30 días o 5 semividas del medicamento (lo que sea más largo) antes de la primera dosis del medicamento del estudio o que esté actualmente inscrito en otro estudio clínico.
