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   36397   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5997   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).
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objectives of this study are to:
    • Determine the safety and tolerability of MLN1202 in patients with RRMS.
    • Determine the efficacy of MLN1202 in patients with RRMS by comparing the mean number of new gadolinium-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid(Gd)-enhancing lesions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during the pretreatment phase with the mean number of new Gd enhancing lesions found during the treatment phase.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives :
    The secondary objective of this study is to:
    • Characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) and observe the pharmacodynamics (PD) responses in relation to MLN1202 in patients with RRMS
    • To observe other MRI assessments in relation to MLN1202 in patients with RRMS

    The exploratory objectives of this study are to:
    •Use mRNA or protein expression patterns of genes known to be involved in MS pathophysiology or chemokine pathways to further understand the mechanism of action of MLN1202 in patients with MS
    •Determine if select mRNA or protein expression patterns of genes known to be involved in MS pathophysiology or chemokine pathways are potentially useful biomarkers of clinical outcome to MLN1202 treatment of patients with MS

    •Have a total of at least 2 new Gd-enhancing lesions seen over the series of 3 pre-treatment MRIs. (Note: If a patient experiences a flare of disease during the pre-treatment period requiring the use of corticosteriods according to the exclusion criteria below, MRIs will not be performed for 2 months after completion of corticosteroids, at which time pre-screening monthly MRIs will then continue until the patient has completed 3 scans. The patient’s schedule of visits will be adjusted accordingly. The use of corticosteroids during the pre-treatment period will be limited to a 3 to 5 day course of IV methylprednisolone without subsequent oral corticosteroids.) of the study period
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients meeting any of the following exclusion criteria are not to be enrolled in the study:
    •Have a diagnosis of PPMS or SPMS
    •Have received any investigational drug or experimental procedure within 3 months prior to Study Day 0
    •If the patient has received disease-modifying cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan®) or mitoxantrone [Novantrone®] for MS, that treatment must have discontinued 6 months prior to study Day 0.
    •If the patient has received the following prior disease modifying treatments: (interferons [Avonex®, Rebif®, Betaseron/®Betaferon®], glatiramer acetate [Copaxone®], azathioprine [Imuran®]) for MS, that treatment must have discontinued at least 12 weeks prior to study Day 0.
    •If the patient has received disease-modifying methotrexate, IV immunoglobulin, cyclosporin, or plasma exchange for MS, that treatment must have discontinued at least 8 weeks prior to study Day 0.
    •If the patient has received prior treatment with corticosteroids for MS, the patient must have discontinued that treatment at least 8 weeks prior to Study Day 0.
    •If the patient has ever been exposed to Tysabri® (natalizumab) or any other VLA-4 (a4b1) antagonist.
    •Have an active infection or be considered to be at high risk for developing an infection, including reactivation of latent tuberculosis, in the opinion of the investigator.
    •Have a history of hepatitis B, C, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    •Have a chest X-ray within 6 months of Study Day 0 with clinically significant findings or abnormalities, in the opinion of the investigator
    •Have inadequate renal (serum creatinine >1.5 times the upper limit of normal [ULN]) or hepatic function (aspartate transaminase [AST] or alanine transaminase [ALT] >2 times the ULN)
    •Have a known history of cancer, except for distant history (>10 years) of carcinoma in situ of the cervix or adequately treated basal cell carcinoma of the skin
    •Received any live, attenuated vaccinations within 30 days prior to Study Day 0
    •Have a history of illicit drug or alcohol abuse within 5 years of Study Day 0

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    •Safety: Safety will be assessed by vital sign measurement, physical examinations, MS relapses, changes in EDSS scores and standard laboratory test results, as well as the incidence of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs). In addition, MRI scans will be monitored on a continuous basis throughout the study for any change from the pre-treatment phase. Immunogenicity will be assessed through monitoring human anti-human (anti-MLN1202) antibodies (HAHA). Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) response to purified protein derivative (PPD)/tuberculin (TB) antigen will also be assessed.

    •Efficacy: The primary efficacy endpoint will be the comparison of the mean number of new Gd enhancing lesions on MRI during the pre-treatment phase with the mean number of new Gd enhancing lesions found during the treatment phase as assessed by the central blinded MRI reader. Additional MRI assessments will include the T2-weighted lesion load, the volume of Gd-enhancing lesions, and volume of T1 weighted hypo-intense lesions.

    •Pharmacokinetics: Initially, serum concentration-time data will be analysed using noncompartmental methods. Parameters such as maximum concentration (Cmax), clearance (CL), volume of distribution at steady state Vss, and half-life (t1/2) will be reported. Compartmental methods will be used to calculate maximum elimination rate (Vm), and Michaelis-Menten rate constant (Km), in addition to other PK parameters. Graphical methods will be used to relate these measures.

    •Pharmacodynamics: The PD endpoints will be assessed by measuring free C-C chemokine receptor 2 (CCR2) receptors on CD14+ cells using a fluorescent-labelled antibody to CCR2 (free site assay) and by utilizing the fluorescent-labelled ligand, monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP-1), to measure free CCR2 receptors on monocytes and memory CD4+ T cells (ligand internalization assay). PD measures will include percent positive cells (percentage of cells positive for the parameter being examined) and/or the molecule equivalence of soluble fluorochrome, often expressed and referred to as the mean equivalence of soluble fluorochrome (MESF).

    •Exploratory Biomarkers: The exploratory biomarker endpoints will be assessed by correlating changes in protein or gene expression patterns at baseline and following MLN1202 treatment with changes in Gd-enhanced MRI brain lesions.
