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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7263   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.

    OR
    Must agree to use contraception/barrier as detailed below
    Agree to use a male condom and should also be advised of the benefit for a female partner to use a highly effective method of contraception as a condom may break or leak when having sexual intercourse with a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) who is not currently pregnant
    - A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant or breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions apply:
    Is not a Woman of child-bearing ptential (WOCBP)
    OR
    Is a WOCBP and agrees to use a contraceptive method that is highly effective (with a failure rate of <1% per year), preferably with low user dependency, as described in Appendix 4 (Section 10.4) during the intervention period and until accelerated elimination procedure is completed (or for at least 10 days after the last dose of SAR442168, if the case was unblinded) and agrees not to donate eggs (ova, oocytes) for the purpose of reproduction during the study and for the same period of time.
    A WOCBP must have a negative highly sensitive pregnancy test urine or serum, as required by local regulations) within the screening period before the first dose of study intervention.
    - If a urine test cannot be confirmed as negative (eg, an ambiguous result), a serum pregnancy test is required. In such cases, the participant must be excluded from participation if the serum pregnancy result is positive.
    - Requirements for pregnancy testing during and after study intervention are located in Section 1.3.
