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   41470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6815   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.

    Type of Participant and Disease Characteristics:
    2. Participants’ parent(s)/legal guardian(s) and participants, as age appropriate, who are willing and able to comply with all scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, lifestyle considerations, and other study procedures.
    3. Healthy participants who are determined by medical history, physical examination, and clinical judgment of the investigator to be eligible for inclusion in the study.
    Note: Healthy participants with preexisting stable disease, defined as disease not requiring significant change in the therapy or hospitalization for worsening disease during the 6 weeks before enrollment, can be included.
    Phase 2/3: Specific criteria for such participants with known stable infection with HIV, HCV, or HBV can be found in Section 10.7.
    4. Participants are expected to be available for the duration of the study and whose parent(s)/legal guardian can be contacted by telephone during study participation.
    5. Negative urine pregnancy test for female participants who are biologically capable of having children.
    6. Female participant of childbearing potential or male participant able to father children who is willing to use a highly effective method of contraception as outlined in this protocol for at least 28 days after the last dose of study intervention if at risk of pregnancy with her/his partner; or female participant not of childbearing potential or male participant not able to father children.
    Informed Consent:
    7. The participant’s parent(s)/legal guardian is capable of giving signed informed consent as described in Appendix 1, which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the ICD and in this protocol. Depending on the age of the participant and according to local requirements, participants will also be asked to provide assent as appropriate (verbal or written).
    The investigator, or a person designated by the investigator, will obtain written or electronically signed informed consent (and assent) from each study participant’s legal guardian (as defined in Appendix 1) and the participant’s assent, when applicable, before any study-specific activity is performed. All legal guardians should be fully informed, and participants should be informed to the fullest extent possible, about the study in language and terms they are able to understand. The investigator will retain the original copy of each participant's signed consent/assent document.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    2. Phase 1 only: Known infection with HIV, HCV, or HBV.
    3. Receipt of medications intended to prevent COVID-19.
    4. Previous or current diagnosis of MIS-C.
    5. Other medical or psychiatric condition including recent (within the past year) or active suicidal ideation/behavior or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk of study participation or, in the investigator’s judgment, make the participant inappropriate for the study.
