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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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.

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At delivery
    A l'accouchement
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1) Levetiracetam pharmacokinetics in pregnancy: Percentage of inter-individual variability in clearance or volume explained by a covariate (weight, serum creatinine, co-administration of other antiepileptics).
    2) Exposure ratio
    3) Link between levetiracetam concentrations and effects:
    - correlate the evolution of the concentrations in the woman (value in the woman whose treatment is balanced before the pregnancy minus the value when she is pregnant) to the effectiveness (number of crises that the patient did).
    - tolerance: presence or absence of clinical and biological abnormalities occurring in pregnant women and children.
    1) Expliquer la variabilité interindividuelle de la clairance d’élimination par d’autres facteurs tels que le poids, la créatininémie, la co-administration d’autres antiépileptiques.
    2) Estimation du passage transplacentaire des antiépileptiques comme un ratio d’exposition entre la mère et le fÅ“tus
    3) Corréler l’évolution des concentrations chez la femme (valeur chez la femme dont le traitement est équilibré avant la grossesse versus valeur lorsqu’elle est enceinte) à :
    - l’efficacité (nombre de crises que la patiente aura faites).
    - la tolérance : anomalies cliniques et biologiques survenant chez la femme enceinte et chez le nouveau-né
