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   43973   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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.

    -on appetite and eating habits using questionnaires Control of Eating,Binge Eating Scale,Dutch Eating Behaviour Questionnaire,Questionnaire on Eating and Weight Patterns
    -on adipose tissue and skeletal muscle metabolism and mitochondrial parameters following diet-induced weight loss intervention at 12 months
    -n oxygen uptake and perfusion-proxy measures of mitochondrial function-of tissues (subcutaneous and intra-abdominal adipose tissue,brown adipose tissue,skeletal muscle,gut and liver) using a PET and CT scanning before vs. after diet-induced weight loss intervention at 12 months
