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   43440   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7185   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.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •Assessment of Clinical Severity: Change in NEWS from baseline (Day 1 through Day 29)
    The NEWS has demonstrated an ability to discriminate patients at risk of poor outcomes. This score is based on 7 clinical parameters (respiration rate, oxygen saturation, any supplemental oxygen, temperature, systolic blood pressure, heart rate, level of consciousness [Alert, Voice, Pain, Unresponsive]).
    •Time to clinical response: NEWS ≤ 2 maintained for 24 hours, Day 1 through Day 29
    •Time to hospital discharge: defined as duration of hospitalization from Day 1 of study
    •If admitted to ICU post randomization: Duration of ICU stay through Day 29
    •Duration of any oxygen use Day 1 through Day 29
    •If requiring mechanical ventilation post randomization: Duration mechanical ventilation through Day 29
    •Absolute value and mean change from baseline in the Ordinal scale Day 1 through Day 29
    The Ordinal scale is as follows:
    1) Death;
    2) Hospitalized, on invasive mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO);
    3) Hospitalized, on non-invasive ventilation or high flow oxygen devices;
    4) Hospitalized, requiring supplemental oxygen;
    5) Hospitalized, not requiring supplemental oxygen;
    6) Not hospitalized, limitation on activities;
    7) Not hospitalized, no limitations on activities.
    •Proportion (percentage) of subjects in each severity category of the 7-point Ordinal scale at Day 15 and Day 29
    •Time to sustained normalization of temperature and proportion of patients with normalization of fever at all time points, defined as temperature < 36.6 °C armpit, < 37.2 °C oral, or < 37.8 °C rectal sustained for at least 24 hours
    •Number of subjects who develop Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) through Day 29
    •Length of time to clinical progression through Day 29 (defined as the time to death, mechanical ventilation, or ICU admission)
    •Mortality through Day 29
    • Evaluación de la severidad clínica: cambios en NEWS desde el inicio (desde el día 1 hasta el día 29). La puntuación NEWS ha demostrado una habilidad para discriminar pacientes en riesgo de resultados deficientes. Esta puntuación está basada en 7 parámetros clínicos (frecuencia respiratoria, saturación de oxígeno, cualquier suplemento de oxígeno, temperatura, presión sanguínea sistólica, frecuencia cardíaca, nivel de conciencia [alerta, voz, dolor, inconsciencia]).
    • Tiempo hasta la respuesta clínica: NEWS ≤ 2 mantenido durante 24 horas, desde el día 1 hasta el día 29.
    • Tiempo hasta el alta hospitalaria: definido como la duración de la hospitalización desde el día 1.
    • Si es admitido en la UCI después de la aleatorización: duración de la estancia en la UCI hasta el día 29.
    • Duración de cualquier uso de oxígeno desde el día 1 al día 29.
    • Si requiere ventilación mecánica post aleatorización: duración de la ventilación mecánica hasta el día 29.
    • Valor absoluto y cambio medio desde el inicio del día 1 hasta el día 29 en la puntuación de la escala Ordinal:
    La puntuación de la escala Ordinal es según sigue:
    1) Muerte;
    2)Hospitalizado, en ventilación mecánica invasiva u oxigenación por membrana extracorpórea (OMEC);
    3) Hospitalizado, en ventilación no invasiva o dispositivos de oxígeno de alto flujo;
    4) Hospitalizado, con requerimiento de oxígeno suplementario;
    5) Hospitalizado, sin requerimiento de oxígeno suplementario;
    6) No hospitalizado, limitación en actividades;
    7) No hospitalizado, sin limitación en actividades.
    • Proporción (porcentaje) de sujetos en cada categoría de gravedad de la puntuación de la escala Ordinal de 7 puntos el día 15 y el día 29.
    • Tiempo hasta la normalización sostenida de la temperatura y la proporción de pacientes con normalización de la fiebre en todos los tiempos, definido como temperatura < 36.6 °C axilar, < 37.2 °C oral, o < 37.8 °C rectal sostenida durante al menos 24 horas.
    • Número de sujetos que desarrollan Síndrome de Distrés Respiratorio Agudo (SDRA) hasta el día 29.
    • Tiempo transcurrido hasta la progresión clínica hasta el día 29 (definido como tiempo hasta la muerte, ventilación mecánica o admisión en la UCI).
