Clinical Trial Registry – European Union.
The EU Clinical Trials Register contains information on interventional clinical trials on medicines conducted in the European Union (EU), or the European Economic Area (EEA) which started after 1 May 2004.
Clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA are included if:
- They form part of a paediatric investigation plan (PIP), or:
- They are sponsored by a marketing authorisation holder, and involve the use of a medicine in the paediatric population as part of an EU marketing authorisation.
The Register also provides information about older paediatric trials covered by an EU marketing authorisation.
The Register enables you to search for information in the EudraCT database . This is the database used by national medicines regulators for data related to clinical trial protocols. The data on the results of these trials are entered into the database by the sponsors themselves and are published in this Register once the sponsors have validated the data.
The EU clinical trials register has been a primary registry in the World Health Organization (WHO’s) Registry Network since September 2011 and is a WHO Registry Network data provider. It is also available on the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform
