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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.

    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
    Phase 2/3: Specific criteria for such participants with known stable
    infection with HIV, HCV, or HBV can be found in Section 10.7.

    participant not able to father children.
    Informed Consent:
    7. The participant or participant's parent(s)/legal guardian is capable of
    giving signed informed consent as described in Appendix 1, which

    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 or participant's legal guardian (as defined in Appendix
    1) and the participant's assent, when applicable, before any studyspecific
    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
    Medical Conditions:
    1. Phase 1 only: Past clinical (based on COVID-19 symptoms/signs
    alone, if a SARS CoV 2 NAAT result was not available) or microbiological
