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   43842   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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.

    13. Diabetes mellitus type 1.
    14. Diabetes mellitus type 2: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus may only enter the clinical trial if a kidney biopsy performed within 6 months prior to signing ICF shows IgAN without evidence of diabetic nephropathy and their disease is controlled, such as:
    a. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) < 8.0% or < 64 mmoL/mol.
    b. No diabetic retinopathy known.
    c. No peripheral neuropathy known.
    15. Significant uncontrolled cardiovascular disease (including arterial or venous thrombotic or embolic events) or cardiac insufficiency (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class IV) as judged by the investigator.
