Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   42564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    The objectives of this pilot study are to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of Osigraft® treatment as a replacement for autograft as measured by:
    1. (efficacy) comparison of overall fusion success and time to fusion considering radiographic evidence along with pain/function outcomes between the treatment and control groups;
    2. (safety) comparison of the complications between the treatment group and the control group.

    2) The subject is severely osteoporotic/osteopenic as manifested by the presence of a history of osteoporotic spine fractures and/or medical treatment for osteoporosis and/or such changes on the AP/lateral radiographs that will make the surgeon decide to exclude this patient from any form of pedicle fixation;
    3) The subject has an active spinal and/or systemic infection;
    4) The subject has a systemic disease or condition, which would affect his/her ability to participate in the study requirements or the ability to evaluate the efficacy of the investigational product (i.e., active malignancy, neuropathy);
    5) The subject is a prisoner, a transient or has been treated for alcohol and/or drug abuse in an inpatient substance abuse program within six months prior to proposed study enrollment;
    6) The subject has participated in clinical trials evaluating investigational devices, pharmaceuticals or biologics within 3 months of enrollment in the study;
    7) The subject is a woman who intends to bear children within 1 year of enrolling in the study (e.g. is not post-menopausal, has not had a hysterectomy, is not on long term oral contraception);
    8) The subject is morbidly obese (defined as weight >60 percent over the recommended ideal weight as described in the 1996 Metropolitan Height and Weight Tables for Men and Women;
    9)The subject has a known sensitivity to any component of Osigraft®;
    10) The subject is known to require at the time of treatment, additional surgery to the lumbar spinal region within the next six months;
    11) Patients who have in the last year been prescribed systemic corticosteroids.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary end point of this study is the 12 (+/- 45 days) months follow-up overall success rate. The success criteria are defined below. If the patient fails to achieve any of the succes criteria mentioned below, the patients will be classified as a failure.

    1. Radiographic demonstration of spinal fusion:
    - CT-scans indicating fusion defined as continuous intertransverse bony bridges at one of the two sides indicated the presence of fusion at that location.
    2. Oswestry Disability Index improvement of at least 20% from the pre-treatment visit.
    3. No revisions, removals or supplemental fixations. All re-operations that are intended to promote fusion at the treated level result in the patient being considered failure. Re-operations that are not intended to promote fusion, such as drain removal will not be considered failures. Revision, removals, supplemental fixations and re-operations are defined:
    - A revision is a procedure that adjusts or in any way modifies or removes part of the original implant configuration (hardware and/or bone graft procedure), with or without replacement of a component. A revision may also include adjusting the position of the original configuration;
    - A removal is a procedure where the entire original system configuration is removed with or without replacement;
    - A reoperation is any surgical procedure at the involved level(s) that does not remove, modify or add any components to the system;
    - A supplemental fixation is a procedure in which additional instrumentation not under study in the protocol is implanted (e.g., supplemental placement of a rod/screw system or a plate/screw system).
    4. Absence of a serious investigational-product -related adverse event during the course of the study.
    5. No unresolved neurological deficits at the final examination that were not present prior to study treatment, unless the deficit is due to a concurrent medical condition. Unresolved neurological deficits due to a concurrent medical condition will not be considered failures.
    6. No decreases in neurological status at the final examination from the preoperative evaluation, unless the decrease is due to a concurrent medical condition. Decreases in neurological status due to a concurrent medical condition will not be considered failures.
