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   42782   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7047   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    1. The GHQ-12 is a 12-item scale which screens for general (non-psychotic) psychiatric morbidity, (Goldberg et al., 1992).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    4 and 8 weeks (alongside baseline)
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    2. The Brief Resilience Scale (BRS) to measure resilience is a 6-item participant self-report measure, which assesses an individual’s ability to bounce back or recover from stress. (Smith et al., 2008).
    3. The GAD-7 is a well validated and widely used 7-item measure of anxiety. A change of 4 or more on the GAD has been found to be clinically significant across anxiety disorders. (Spitzer et al., 2006).
    4. The PHQ-9 is the 9-item depression module from the full PHQ. There is strong evidence for the validity of the PHQ-9 as a brief measure of depression severity. (Kroenke et al., 2001).
    5. The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS) is a 7-item measure to enable the monitoring of subjective well-being and psychological functioning compared to the general population (all items are worded positively and address aspects of positive mental health) (Tennant et al., 2007).
    6. The 5-item Work and Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS) (Mundt et al., 2002).
    7. The 6-item Stanford Presenteeism Scale (SPS-6) (Koopman et al., 2002).
    8. The Minimal Insomnia Symptom Scale (MISS) is a 3-item scale which provides a brief measure of sleeping difficulties (Broman et al., 2008).
