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   43841   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7281   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The main purpose of the trial is to demonstrate efficacy and safety of Cytotect CP Biotest in preventing maternal-fetal transmission of cytomegalovirus (CMV).

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To determine the rate of maternal-fetal transmission at the time of amniocentesis (week 20 [-1 week / +2 weeks] of gestation) in the 2 subgroups:
    o Subjects with periconceptionally acquired infection
    o Subjects with infection acquired during first trimester
    • To measure maternal CMV viral load, anti-CMV IgG Levels, anti-CMV IgG avidity, anti-CMV IgM index
    • To determine soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt-1) concentration in maternal serum
    • To evaluate vitality and growth of the fetuses/newborns
    •To evaluate the rate of congenital CMV infection at delivery or within the first 3 days after delivery
    • To measure the number of CMV-DNA copies in the urine of newborns
