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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Co primary main objectives:
    (1)To evaluate whether 6 months of treatment with 10 mg of Empagliflozin can improve peak oxygen consumption (VO2) in elderly and obese patients with cardiovascular disease.

    (2) To evaluate whether 6 months of treatment with 10 mg of Empagliflozin can reduce left ventricular (LV) mass index in elderly and obese patients with cardiovascular disease
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    (1) To investigate whether the improvement in peak VO2 is associated with improvement in daily activity level measured by an accelerometer and self-reported quality of life.

    (2) To evaluate whether reduction in LV mass is associated with reduction in cardiac fibrosis and left atrial maximal volume.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    (1)To evaluate whether 6 months of treatment with 10 mg of Empagliflozin reduce 24 hours blood pressure and arterial vascular stiffness (Vascular function hypothesis)

    (2)To evaluate whether 6 months of treatment with 10 mg of Empagliflozin improves myocardial contractile reserve by an increase in plasma concentrations of ketone bodies (Ketone bodies hypothesis), reduce cardiac fat mass and improve total body adipose distribution and improve glycemic control (Cardiac-adipose tissue interaction hypothesis)

    (3) To evaluate whether 6 months of treatment with 10 mg of Empagliflozin induces a change in total body water, an increased section of erythropoietin, a decrease in surate and stabilization of glomerular filtration rate (Renal hypothesis).
