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   41039   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6717   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.

    • Occurrence of first episodes of virologically-confirmed (RT-PCR positive) cases of COVID-19 of any severity meeting the case definition due to infection with “wild type” (i.e., WT/D614G lineages A.1 / B.1 without VOC B.1.1.7, B.1.351, B.1.429) and “UK” (B.1.1.7) SARS CoV 2 strains in SARS CoV 2 naïve subjects.
    • Occurrence of seroconversion to the N protein of SARS-CoV-2 ≥ 15 following after the second trial vaccination in asymptomatic seronegative subjects.
    Seroconversion is defined as detectable SARS-CoV-2 N protein antibodies in the serum of subjects on Day 211 and/or Day 393 of the trial, who tested seronegative at Day 1 (baseline) and Day 43 (i.e. at the 2 testing time points prior to 15 following after the second trial vaccination).

    • Serum antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 S protein.
    • Occurrence of seroconversion to SARS-CoV-2 S protein.
    Seroconversion is defined as detectable SARS-CoV-2 S protein antibodies in the serum of subjects who tested seronegative at baseline.

    SARS-CoV-2 viral neutralizing antibody responses
    On Days 1, 29, 43, 57, 120, 211, and 393:
    • Serum neutralizing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 virus, as measured by a viral neutralizing antibody assay.
    • Occurrence of seroconversion to SARS-CoV-2 virus, as measured by a viral neutralizing antibody assay.
    Seroconversion is defined as detectable SARS-CoV-2 viral neutralizing antibodies in the serum of subjects who tested seronegative at baseline.
