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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    The study subjects are patients with endometriosis needing surgical treatment.
    Tutkimuspotilaat ovat endometrioosipotilaita, jotka tarvitsevat kirurgista hoitoa.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language

    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective of this study is to compare the effect and safety of LTAP (Chirocaine 2,5 mg/ml 40 ml) to local wound analgesia (Chirocaine 5mg/ml 10 ml) treating post-laparoscopic pain measured by postoperative opioid consumption.
    Tutkimuksessa verrataan LTAP-puudutuksen (Chirocaine 2,5mg/ml 40 ml) tehoa ja turvallisuutta leikkaushaavojen paikallispuudutukseen (Chirocaine 5mg/ml 10 ml) mittaamalla PCA-pumpun opioidikulutusta leikkauksen jälkeisen kivun hoidossa.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    As for secondary outcome, postoperative pain will be measured using NRS scaled 1 to 10 at the recovery room, at the ward and at discharge every six hours. Facts related to postoperative recovery (nausea, vomiting, peroral intake, mobilization, complications and time of discharge) will serve as other outcomes and will be measured accordingly. Additionally, a 6-month postoperative follow-up will be conducted using NRS pain inquiry and EHP-30 questionnaire sent to participants.
    Postoperatiivista kipua mitataan NRS-skaalalla 1-10 kuuden tunnin välein heräämössä, osastolla ja kotiutumisen yhteydessä. Lisäksi tutkimme LTAP-puudutuksen vaikutusta potilaan postoperatiiviseen toipumiseen (pahoinvointi, oksentelu, suun kautta ravitsemus, mobilisaatio, komplikaatiot) ja kotiutumiseen. Potilaiden kokema leikkaustulos arvioidaan preoperatiivisesti ja 6 kk kuluttua leikkauksesta täytettyjen kipu- ja EHP-30- kyselyiden avulla.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Sleep-apnea.
    ASA > 3.

    Vasta-aihe puuduteaineille tai tulehduskipulääkkeelle.
    Säännöllinen preoperatiivinen opioidin käyttö.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary end point of the study is the assumption that LTAP will decrease the postoperative opioid consumption measured by PCA-pump by 50% in comparison to local wound analgesia.
    Tutkimuksen päähypoteesin mukaan LTAP-ryhmässä PCA-pumpun avulla mitattu postoperatiivinen opioidin kulutus on 50% vähäisempää kuin paikallispuudutusryhmässä.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The total opioid consumption will be measured from the beginning of surgery until hospital discharge.
    Totaali opioidin kulutus mitataan leikkauksen alusta kotiutukseen asti.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary end points are postoperative pain and facts related to recovery; nausea, vomiting, peroral intake, mobilisation, complications, time to discharge. Additional end points are pain and general health six months after surgery evaluated by questionnaires (NRS, EHP-30).
    Sekundaariset vastemuuttujat ovat postoperatiivinen kipu ja leikkauksesta toipuminen; pahoinvointi, oksentelu, suun kautta ravitsemus, mobilisoituminen, komplikaatiot ja kotiutumis-aikataulu. Lisäksi tutkitaan 6 kuukauden leikkaustulokset kivun ja yleisterveyden suhteen kyselykaavakkein (NRS ja EHP-30).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Secondary end points will be measured every six hours from the beginning of surgery until discharge. Questionnaires will be evaluated six months after surgery.
    Sekundaariset vastemuuttujat mitataan kuuden tunnin välein leikkauksesta aina kotiutumiseen asti. Kyselykaavakkeet evaluoidaan 6 kuukauden kuluttua leikkauksesta.
