In this minor release the IT Service Desk contact details were updated on the footer. We also took this opportunity to correct discrepancy in the number of records displayed for Art.45 on the EU CTR
The register now contains information on paediatric clinical trials completed by 26 January 2007, in respect of products authorised in the EU / EEA, that were submitted to the Agency by pharmaceutical companies in accordance with Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006.
Paediatric clinical trials that are marketing-authorisation-holder-sponsored and involve the use in the paediatric population of a medicinal product covered by an EU marketing authorisation (Article 46 of Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006), are now included even if the investigator sites are outside the EU / EEA.
- In this version, the user is able to search for clinical trials with or without results and view the results of a clinical trial that have been provided by the sponsor.
The EU Clinical Trials Register v1.2 upgrade was a non-functional release.
The following enhancements were made to the EU Clinical Trials Register for v1.1:
- Download function – It is now possible to download clinical trial data in plain text format.
- Bookmarkable URLs – Individual links to Clinical Trial pages and searches can now be saved as bookmarks or copy-pasted from the browser’s address bar and shared with others.
- Search filter enhancements – New search filters allow searches for trials where the condition being studied is a rare disease and for trials by specific gender. In addition, search filters now support multiple selections.
- Support for browser Back/Forward buttons – The EU Clinical Trials Register now fully supports the use of browser Back/Forward buttons.
- Improved user interface – Other changes have been made to the user interface to make the Register easier to use including simplified scrolling and improved pagination of search results.
- Thesaurus enabled search - The EU Clinical Trials Register now makes use of thesaurus enabled searching to expand synonyms of certain known terms in order to obtain better search results. The thesaurus searching uses health and biomedical terms and other data provided in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS)® Metathesaurus®. The EMA is a Licensee authorised to use the UMLS®.
