For healthcare professionals

At Galapagos, our aim is to make a lasting positive contribution through the development of novel breakthrough therapies for medical conditions with a high unmet need. Each clinical trial is a key milestone on this journey. 


Clinical trials and supporting patients


This site has been developed to provide information on Phase 2 to 4 Galapagos clinical trials and you will find the most important requirements for each trial clearly displayed. 

If a patient has come to you to discuss a Galapagos clinical trial, is interested in talking to you about clinical trials in general, or you want to discuss clinical options with a specific patient, they are likely to have lots of questions. You can provide support through providing information around clinical trials and guiding them through the process.

Explaining why a clinical trial may be an option

While some patients actively look for suitable clinical trials, many are not aware that it could be an option for them or are unsure of what they are. Through providing an overview of clinical trials, including the strict ethical and procedural guidelines, you can help to ensure they receive all the information they need to make an informed decision about their treatment and potential clinical trial participation.

Helping find a clinical trial

In circumstances in which you think a clinical trial could be the best option for a patient, or a patient has expressed interest in enrolling onto a clinical trial, the following steps can be followed:

Search for a relevant clinical trial. You can search on this website to quickly find out if Galapagos is currently running Phase 2 to 4 trials that might be of interest to you. Identify whether a patient is eligible for the clinical trial by carefully reviewing the eligibility criteria. Discuss the clinical trial with the patient and provide an overview of the next steps.

If a suitable clinical trial is found and the patient is interested in enrolling, the next stage would be to contact the trial site. Information on Galapagos run Phase 2 to 4 trials is available on this website. If it is deemed suitable to progress to the next stage, the patient will meet with the trial coordinator, who can answer any questions. Then, after a number of tests have taken place, the decision will be made as to whether the patient can enter the trial. During the process, it is important to reassure patients that you will still play an active role in their care and are likely to have more consultations while they are taking part in a trial.

Who is Galapagos?

Our pioneering approach is focused on the discovery of novel targets and the development of small-molecule treatments with modes of action that specifically target the disease rather than the symptoms. We have ongoing clinical studies, including those in inflammation and fibrosis, taking place in six continents across the world.
