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   42869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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.

    In this study we will also investigate: the impact of timing of vaccination during pregnancy on cellular immune responses in pregnant women at several timepoints during and after pregnancy; the impact of timing on vaccination during pregnancy on antibody characteristics that are optimally transferred across the placenta and on transplacental transport efficiency; the impact of maternal Tdap vaccination and timing of maternal Tdap vaccination on breast milk antibody composition at several timepoints postpartum; the impact of vaccination during pregnancy on the mucosal uptake of breast milk IgA antibodies by the infant respiratory and gastrointestinal tract.
