The clinical trials which are registered with Orphanet are those taking place in Europe and surrounding countries. The information which is displayed is provided by the sponsor and/or by the principal investigator. In some countries data is provided by the national drug agencies: in France the data is provided by AFSSAPS.

The data is updated annually.


The data collection takes place in European and surrounding countries and is currently ongoing. Clinical trials sponsored by funding agencies outside of the Orphanet consortium are collected by the coordinating team if the funding agency is member of the IRDiRC consortium. The database cannot yet be regarded as comprehensive. If no clinical trial is listed for a disease, a group of diseases or a gene, it may be that there is no ongoing clinical trial, or that we have not yet collected the information, but it is also possible that the investigator or the sponsor has refused to be listed.

Orphanet aims to provide rare disease information to healthcare professionals, patients, and their relatives, in order to contribute improving the diagnosis, care and treatment of these diseases. Information in Orphanet is not intended to replace professional health care.

Orphanet cannot be held responsible for harmful, truncated or erroneous use of any information found in the Orphanet database.
