Study Reports and Synopses
UCB prepares reports that describe the methods used and the results for each study after it ends. This report is called a Study Report. A brief summary is called a Synopsis. The reports are given to the government agencies that approve and monitor the development of new medicines in their region or country. The agencies use the information in these reports to help them decide if a drug can be approved for a specific therapeutic use.
In 2014, UCB began posting Study Report Synopses online for pivotal trials that began before 2004. UCB also began sharing results for Phase 2-4 interventional clinical trials that began after 01 January 2004 but had not already been shared in another forum such as a public registry.
UCB shares Study Report Synopses on our website for all Phase 1-4 interventional clinical studies in patients that were part of an approved marketing application since 01 January 2014.
