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   35481   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5824   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Study objective was to test the following hypothesis:
    Primary Hypothesis
    In adolescent subjects with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH), coadministration of ezetimibe (EZ) 10 mg/day plus simvastatin (simva) 10 mg/day, 20 mg/day, or 40 mg/day will result in a greater lowdensity-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) reduction compared with simva 10 mg/day, 20 mg/day, or 40 mg/day
    as monotherapy measured as percent change from Baseline to Week 6 (end of Step 1) in the pooled groups.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Study objective was to test the following hypothesis:
    Secondary Hypothesis
    In adolescent subjects with HeFH, coadministration of EZ 10 mg/day plus simva 10 mg/day, 20 mg/day, or
    40 mg/day will result in a greater reduction in total cholesterol (TC), non-high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol
    (non-HDL-C), triglycerides (TG), and apolipoprotein B (Apo B), as well as in a greater increase in highdensity-
    lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) as compared univariately with simva 10 mg/day, 20 mg/day, or 40 mg/day as monotherapy measured as percent change from Baseline to Week 6 (end of Step 1) in the pooled groups.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Adolescent (ages 10 - 17 years) boys or girls weighing at least 88 lbs (40 kg).
    - Subjects must have high cholesterol (low density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL-C] more than 159 mg/dL or 4.1 mmol/L) and a family history of high cholesterol.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Subjects diagnosed with delayed puberty.
    - Subjects who are sensitive to simvastatin and/or ezetimibe.
    - Subjects who drink alcohol excessively or who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse within the past 2 years.
    - Subjects who are known to be HIV positive, are undergoing LDL apheresis or plasma apheresis, or have had a partial ileal bypass.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of the study is the proportion of the subjects achieving LDL-C goal at Week 14.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    LDL-C is evaluated at Day 0, and weeks 2,6,10,18,26,33,43,53. Primary endpoint is reduction in LDL-C from baseline to 6 weeks.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The key secondary endpoint is the percent change in TC, non-HDL-C, TG, Apo B, and HDL-C from baseline to 6 weeks (end of Step 1) in the pooled groups assigned to receive randomized treatment with ezetimibe plus simvastatin compared univariately with the changes in the same respective variables in the pooled groups assigned to receive randomized treatment with simvastatin monotherapy: Pooled subjects assigned to receive ezetimibe 10 mg plus simvastatin 10 mg, ezetimibe 10 mg plus simvastatin 20 mg, or ezetimibe 10 mg plus simvastatin 40 mg compared with pooled subjects assigned to receive simvastatin 10 mg monotherapy,
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    With exception of Apo-B, the lipid panel included in the secondary endpoint is evaluated at Day 0, and weeks 2,6,10,18,26,33,43,53. Apo-B is only assessed at Day 0 and Weeks 6 and 33. Secondary endpoint is reduction in TC, non-High-Density-Lipoprotein Cholesterol (non-HDL-C), TG, and Apo B and the increase in the variable HDL-C measured as percent change from baseline to 6 weeks.
