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   43973   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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.

    bilateral salpingectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy).A
    postmenopausal state is defined as no menses for 12months without an
    alternative medical cause. A high FSH level in the postmenopausal range
    may be used to confirm a postmenopausal state in women not using
    hormonal contraception or hormonal replacement therapy. However,in
    the absence of 12months of amenorrhea, a single FSH measurement is
    insufficient. Fertile male subjects must use a condom throughout the
    trial and for4weeks after the last dose of trial drug.A man is considered
