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   43935   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7309   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.

    - Meets classification criteria for primary sjogren's syndrome (pSS) by the 2016 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) / European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) at the time of screening and was diagnosed with pSS no less than 26 weeks prior to screening

    - Total Clinical European League Against Rheumatism Sjogren's Syndrome Disease Activity Index (clinESSDAI) score greater than or equal to (>=) 6
    - At least one abnormal laboratory marker of pSS-related inflammatory disease activity, and at least low activity in one or more specified European League Against Rheumatism Sjogren's Syndrome Disease Activity Index (ESSDAI) domains
    - It is recommended that participants are up to date on all
    age-appropriate vaccinations prior to screening as per
    routine local medical guidelines. For study participants
    who received locally-approved (and including emergency
    use-authorized) coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    vaccines recently prior to study entry, applicable local
    vaccine labelling, guidelines, and standards-of-care for
    participants receiving immune-targeted therapy will be
    followed when determining an appropriate interval
    between vaccination and study enrollment.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    -Has any confirmed or suspected clinical immunodeficiency syndrome not related to treatment of his/her pSS or has a family history of congenital or hereditary immunodeficiency unless confirmed absent in the participant
    - Comorbidities (for example, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) which have required 3 or more courses of systemic glucocorticoids within the previous 12 months
    - Has any unstable or progressive manifestation of pSS that is likely to warrant escalation in therapy beyond permitted background medications and/or has severely active pSS
    - Has received oral cyclophosphamide within 3 months or intravenous (IV) cyclophosphamide within 6 months prior to first administration of study intervention
    - Has sjogren's syndrome overlap syndromes where another confirmed autoimmune rheumatic or systemic inflammatory condition (for example, rheumatoid arthritis [RA], systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE], scleroderma, inflammatory bowel disease [IBD]) is the primary diagnosis or has clinical manifestations that, in the opinion of the investigator, or the sponsor or sponsor's representative are likely to interfere with the investigator's ability to assess pSS manifestations
