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   43800   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.

    A.3Full title of the trial
    A phase II trial of Cabozantinib in patients with advanced, low proliferative NEN G3.
    A.3.1Title of the trial for lay people, in easily understood, i.e. non-technical, language
    A phase II trial of Cabozantinib medication in patients with advanced, high-grade neuroendocrine neoplasms, which are either well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors or poor-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma but with a low proliferation rate. Both neuroendocrine neoplasms are insensitive against the available chemotherapy choice, making the newly investigated medication a new hope for better management of these subtypes.
