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   43846   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Between 18 and 75 years of age
    2. Incomplete traumatic or non-traumatic, non-progressive spinal cord injury: paraplegia or tetraplegia (ASIA C or D). In case of traumatic spinal cord injury due to attempted suicide with resolved psychiatric pathology, a psychiatric report is necessary to rule out a high risk of suicide
    3. Spinal cord injury: level of injury between C4 and L1
    4. More than 12 months from the date of injury (chronic phase)
    5. Ability to walk with or without assistance of at least 5 meters
    6. Psychiatric assessment ruling out high risk of suicide
    7. Ability to provide informed consent.
    1. Entre 18 y 75 años de edad
    2. Lesión medular incompleta traumática o non traumática, non progresiva : paraplejia o tetraplejia (ASIA C o D).
    3. Lesión medular: nivel de lesión entre C4 y L1
    4. Más de 12 meses desde la fecha de la lesión (fase crónica)
    5. Capacidad de marcha con o sin auxilios de un mínimo de 5 metros
    6. Valoración psiquiátrica que descarte elevado riesgo de suicidio.
    7. Capacidad de proporcionar el consentimiento informado
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Under 18 years of age or over 75 years of age
    2. high risk of suicide
    3. Spinal cord injury with ASIA A, B, or E
    4. Spinal cord injury: level of injury above C4 or below L1
    5. Acute phase of rehabilitation: less than one year from date of injury
    6. Walking ability with or without aids < 5 meters or no walking ability
    7. Treatment with anticoagulants
    8. Pregnancy or lactation
    9. Men or Women of childbearing age, who cannot guarantee the use of contraceptive methods considered highly effective, with a failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly.
    A woman of childbearing age is considered to be any woman physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, from menarche to becoming postmenopausal, unless she is permanently sterile. Permanent sterilization methods include hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, and bilateral oophorectomy. A postmenopausal state is defined as no menstruation for 12 months without an alternative medical cause. A high level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in the postmenopausal range can be used to confirm a postmenopausal status in women not using hormonal contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. However, in the absence of 12 months of amenorrhea, a single FSH measurement is insufficient.

    The methods considered acceptable are:
    - Combined hormonal contraception (containing estrogen and progestogen) associated with the inhibition of ovulation, either oral, intravaginal or transdermal.
    - Progestin-only hormonal contraception associated with ovulation inhibition (oral, injectable, or implantable)
    - Intrauterine device (IUD)
    - Intrauterine hormone releasing system (IUS)
    - Bilateral tubal occlusion
    - Vasectomized partner: provided that it is the only sexual partner of the trial participant and that the vasectomized partner has received a medical evaluation of the success of the surgery.
    - Sexual abstinence: Abstain from sexual intercourse during the entire period of treatment and follow-up of the study.
    10. Hypothyroidism, bone, liver or kidney severe disease
    11. Inability to go to the Hospital
    12. Inability to provide informed consent
    1. Menores de 18 años de edad o mayor de 75 años de edad
    2. Lesión medular traumática por intento autolítico con patología psiquiátrica no resuelta (informe psiquiátrico que NO descarte elevado riesgo de suicidio)
    3. Lesión medular con ASIA A, B, ó E
    4. Lesión medular: nivel de lesión por encima de C4 o por debajo de L1
    5. Fase aguda de la rehabilitación: menos de un año desde la fecha de la lesión
    6. Capacidad de marcha con o sin auxilios < de 5 metros o sin capacidad de marcha
    7. Tratamiento con anticoagulantes
    8. Embarazo o lactancia
    9. Hombres o Mujeres en edad fértil, que no puedan garantizar la utilización de métodos anticonceptivos considerados altamente eficaces, con una tasa de fracaso de menos del 1% por año cuando se usa de manera consistente y correcta.
    Se considera mujer en edad fértil toda aquella mujer fisiológicamente capaz de quedarse embarazada, desde la menarquia hasta convertirse en posmenopáusica, a menos que sea permanente estéril. Los métodos de esterilización permanentes incluyen histerectomía, salpingectomía bilateral y ooforectomía bilateral. Un estado posmenopáusico se define como ausencia de menstruación durante 12 meses sin una causa médica alternativa. Un nivel alto de hormona estimulante del folículo (FSH) en el rango posmenopáusico puede ser utilizado para confirmar un estado posmenopáusico en mujeres que no usan anticonceptivos hormonales o terapia de reemplazo hormonal. Sin embargo, en ausencia de 12 meses de amenorrea, una sola medición de FSH es insuficiente.

    Los métodos considerados aceptables son:

    - Anticoncepción hormonal combinada (que contiene estrógeno y progestágeno) asociada a la inhibición de la ovulación, ya sea oral, intravaginal o transdérmica.
    - Anticoncepción hormonal de progestágeno solo asociada con la inhibición de la ovulación (oral, inyectable o implantable)
    - Dispositivo intrauterino (DIU)
    - Sistema de liberación hormonal intrauterino (SIU)
    - Oclusión tubárica bilateral
    - Pareja vasectomizada: siempre que sea la única pareja sexual de la participante en el ensayo y que la pareja vasectomizada haya recibido una evaluación médica del éxito de la cirugía.
    - Abstinencia sexual: Abstenerse de tener relaciones sexuales durante todo el periodo de tratamiento y seguimiento del estudio.
    10. Hipotiroidismo, Enfermedad ósea, hepática o renal severa
    11. Incapacidad para acudir al Hospital
    12. Incapacidad para proporcionar el consentimiento informado
