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   43694   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7248   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.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Sars-Cov2 infection
    Sars-Cov2 Infektion
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    infection with novel corona Virus (Sars-CoV2)
    Infektion mit neuartigem Coronavirus (Sars-CoV2)
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Virus Diseases [C02]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Since there is currently no high level evidence that allows a clear evaluation of advantages or disadvantages of a RAS-system inhibiting therapy (ACE-I, ARB) the influence of RAS-influencing drugs on COVID-19 will be investigated. The randomized switch from ACE-I to ARB against retention of ACE-I will be compared. The new setting with ARB (valsartan) will be compared against the administration of placebo.
    Da es zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt keine klinischen Erkenntnisse mit hoher Evidenz gibt, die eine eindeutige Bewertung über mögliche Vor- oder Nachteile einer das RAS-System hemmenden Therapie (ACE-I, ARB) zulassen, soll die Auswirkung von RAS-beeinflussenden Medikamenten bei COVID-19 geprüft werden. Es soll die Umstellung von ACE-I auf ARB gegen die Beibehaltung von ACE-I randomisiert verglichen werden und die Neueinstellung mit ARB (Valsartan) gegen die Gabe von Placebo verglichen werden.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    By characterizing virus binding epitopes with relevance to a clinically relevant immune response, patient-side protein structures (Ig epitopes) can be identified, which are important for new fast and inexpensive testing possibilities and vaccination development.
    Durch Charakterisierung von Virusbindungsepitopen mit Relevanz zu einer klinisch relevanten Immunantwort lassen sich Patienten-seitige Proteinstrukturen (Ig-Epitope) identifizieren, die für neue schnelle und preiswerte Testmöglichkeiten und Vakzinierungsentwicklung bedeutsam sind
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
