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   41450   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6809   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Colon cancer patients undergoing elective minimally invasive colon surgery and receiving a transversus abdominis plane block for postoperative pain management. Ropivacaine is used as the local analgetic injected and a saline solution is used as the placebo.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective of the trial is to identify the “most simple non-inferior of three different methods”, placebo, laparoscopic assisted transverse abdominal plane block (L-TAP) and ultrasound-guided transverse abdominal plane block (US-TAP), using postoperative opioid consumption as a measure of efficacy in patients undergoing elective minimally invasive colon surgery in an ERAS setting. Postoperative pain scores and LOS will also be measured. The simplicity of the three methods is ranked as: 1) placebo, 2) L-TAP and 3) US-TAP.
