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   41449   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6808   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The main study end point is breast development over the duration of this study. For this purpose, 3D breast images and breast-chest circumference differences will be measured (centimeters). 3D imaging of the breasts will be carried out using an Artec LEO 3D scanner in order to determine breast volume. Bra cup sizes can be calculated from breast-chest circumference differences measurements and the 3D images.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    3, 6, 12 months
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    One secondary study end point is patient satisfaction, this will be assessed at the start of the intervention and during the follow-up visits by three questionnaires: the Rosenberg self-esteem scale (Rosenberg, 1979), the Breast Satisfaction Rating Scale (BSRS), and a non-validated satisfaction questionnaire about different aspects of the breasts. Satisfaction will be measured with regard to different aspects such as symmetry of the breast, the breast volume, and size and shape of the nipple. In addition, ad-verse and serious adverse effects will be recorded. Further, mood and sleep quality will be assessed using the Perceived stress scale, Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology, self-report (IDS-SR), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) questionnaires, which have been adapted for the Castor data-management system. Additionally, the levels of experienced sexual pleasure will be assessed using the Amsterdam Sexual Pleasure Index state Vol 1.0 (ASPI) which has been adapted for the Castor data-management system. Filling in the ASPI is optional.
    Serum progesterone concentrations will be measured after 6 and 12 months.
