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   38526   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6331   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess if 10 doses of HC, each taken 12 hours apart, increase the proportion of COVID-19 patients who have a negative nasopharyngeal RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 by day 7 post diagnosis in the HC arm compared to the no-HC arm.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objective 1: To assess the safety of HC in COVID-19 patients treated in the ambulatory setting
    Secondary objective 2: To assess the clinical efficacy of HC in COVID-19 patients
    Secondary endpoint 3:To assess if 10 doses of HC, each taken 12 hours apart, increase the proportion of COVID-19 patients who have a negative COVIDAM, Protocol version 3.0, dated 16/April/2020 9/49
    nasopharyngeal RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 by day 7 post onset of symptoms (POS) in the HC arm compared to the no-HC arm.
    Secondary Objective 4: To assess if 10 doses of HC, each taken 12 hours apart, increase the proportion of COVID-19 patients who have a negative nasal AND salivary RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 by day 7 post diagnosis in the HC arm compared to the no-HC arm.
