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   43889   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7298   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Change from baseline in the 17-item Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) total score
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At Day 15
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •Change From Baseline in the 17-item HAM-D Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Days 3, 28 and 45 ]
    The 17-item HAM-D scale is used to assess the severity of depression. It is comprised of individual ratings related to the following symptoms: depressed mood, feelings of guilt, suicide, insomnia, work and activities, retardation, agitation, anxiety, somatic symptoms, genital symptoms, hypochondriasis, loss of weight, and insight. Individual items are scored on either a 3-point (0 to 2) or a 5-point scale (0 to 4), with 0=none/absent and 4=most severe. The total score is the sum of individual items, ranging from 0 to 52; where a higher score indicates more depression.

    •Change From Baseline in Clinical Global Impressions - Severity (CGI-S) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 15 ]
    The CGI-S is a 7-point Likert scale to rate the severity of the participant's illness at the time of assessment, relative to the clinician's past experience with participants who have the same diagnosis. A participant is assessed on severity of mental illness at the time of rating as 1=normal, not at all ill; 2=borderline ill; 3=mildly ill; 4=moderately ill; 5=markedly ill; 6=severely ill; and 7=among the most extremely ill participants.

    •Percentage of Participants With HAM-D Response [ Time Frame: Baseline and Days 15 and 45 ]
    HAM-D response is defined as a ≥50% reduction in HAM-D score from baseline.

    •Percentage of Participants With HAM-D Remission [ Time Frame: Days 15 and 45 ]
    HAM-D remission is defined as HAM-D total score ≤7.

    •Percentage of Participants With Clinical Global Impression - Improvement (CGI-I) Response [ Time Frame: Day 15 ]
    CGI-I response is defined as having a CGI-I score of "very much improved" or "much improved." The CGI-I employs a 7-point Likert scale to measure the overall improvement in the participant's condition posttreatment. Response choices include 1=very much improved, 2=much improved, 3=minimally improved, 4=no change, 5=minimally worse, 6=much worse, and 7=very much worse.

    •Change From Baseline in Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (HAM-A) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 15 ]
    The 14-item HAM-A is comprised of a series of symptoms, and measures both psychic anxiety (mental agitation and psychological distress) and somatic anxiety (physical complaints related to anxiety). The HAM-A total score will be calculated as the sum of the 14 individual item scores. The scoring for HAM-A is calculated by assigning scores of 0 (not present) to 4 (very severe), with a total score range of 0 to 56.

    •Change From Baseline in the Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 15 ]
    The MADRS is a 10-item diagnostic questionnaire used to measure the severity of depressive episodes in participants with mood disorders. Each item is rated on a 7-point scale from 0 (no symptoms) to 6 (symptoms of maximum severity). The total score ranges from 0 to 60 with a higher score indicating more depression.

    •Change From Baseline in HAM-D Subscale [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 15 ]
    The 17-item HAM-D is comprised of individual ratings related to the following symptoms: depressed mood, feelings of guilt, suicide, insomnia, work and activities, retardation, agitation, anxiety, somatic symptoms, genital symptoms, hypochondriasis, loss of weight, and insight. HAM-D subscale scores will be calculated as the sum of the items comprising each subscale. Individual items are scored on either a 3-point (0 to 2) or a 5-point scale (0 to 4), with 0=none/absent and 4=most severe.

    •Change From Baseline in Self-Reported Measures of Depressive Symptoms, as Assessed by the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 45 ]
    The EPDS is a self-rated depressive symptom severity scale specific to the perinatal period which consists of 10 individual items. Each item is rated on a 4-point scale ranging from 0 to 3 points. The EPDS total score is calculated as the sum of the 10 individual item scores, ranging from 0 points to 30 points with a higher score indicating more depression.

    •Change From Baseline in Self-Reported Measures of Depressive Symptoms, as Assessed by the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Day 45 ]
    The PHQ-9 is a participant-rated depressive symptom severity scale where scoring is based on responses to specific questions. The score will be calculated as the sum of the 9 individual item scores. The PHQ-9 total score ranges from 1 to 27 with a higher score indicating more depression.

    •Percentage of Participants With at Least One Treatment-Emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 45 ]
