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   42312   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6968   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

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Premature Ejaculation (PE)
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To demonstrate that dapoxetine (30 or 60 mg prn) can prolong intravaginal ejaculatory latency time (IELT) as measured by stopwatch when compared to placebo in men with PE during the 24-week treatment phase
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess patient-reported outcomes in subjects receiving dapoxetine compared to those in subjects receiving placebo
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Males 18 years and older, in a stable, monogamous, sexual relationship with the same woman for at least 6 months and plans to maintain this relationship for the duration of the study.

    Subjects must, by reported history, meet the following diagnostic criteria for PE as specified in the DSM-IV-TR for at least 6 months before enrolling in the study, specifically:
    - the onset of orgasm and ejaculation occurs with minimal sexual stimulation before, on, or shortly after penetration and before the person wishes it
    - PE in the majority of intercourse experiences
    - PE must cause at least distress or interpersonal difficulty, as defined by a subject's response to "Personal Distress" and "Relationship Distress" questions in the Ejaculation Questionnaire. To be eligible to participate in the study a subject must define distress level as at least "a little bit distressed" for at least 1 of these questions
    - PE must not be exclusively due to the direct effects of a substance (e.g., withdrawal from opioids)

    Has a qualifying IELT according to the Baseline Event Log (reviewed at baseline before the first dose of study drug), which is defined as follows:
    - an IELT of <= 2 minutes in a minimum of 3 out of 4 evaluable events (if more than 4 evaluable events have been recorded in the Baseline Event Log, a minimum of 75% of evaluable events must have an IELT <= 2 minutes)
    - an evaluable event is one for which the subject or his partner has indicated "prior to vaginal penetration" or "intravaginal" under the "Ejaculation Occurred" field on the Baseline Event Log and for which at least 20 hours have passed since the subject's last ejaculation

    Must be in good general health before study participation with no clinically relevant abnormalities as determined by: medical history, physical examination, blood chemistry, complete blood count, urinalysis, and 12-lead ECG

    Subject's and partners are willing to follow the recommendation to avoid situations/activities that may have an affect on their sexual activity (e.g., avoid pregnancy, refrain from any preplanned surgery)

    Subject's partner must have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening as pregnancy might affect sexual activity

    Subjects and partners must have signed an informed consent document indicating that they understand the purpose of and procedures required for the study and are willing to participate

    Subjects must have signed the informed consent for genetic testing indicating whether they do or do not wish to participate in the genetic part of the study; participation in the genetic testing component is not mandatory for participation in the study
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Has received study drug in prior dapoxetine trials or has participated in another study within the past 3 months investigating pharmacologic treatment of PE

    Significant history of or current cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, hematologic, neurologic (including seizure disorders), locomotor, immunologic, ophthalmologic, metabolic, endocrine, thromboembolic (including history of pulmonary embolism), rheumatologic, oncologic, renal, or hepatic disorders

    Has a history of any medical events such as surgical interventions (e.g., pelvic/retroperitoneal surgery), neurological conditions (e.g., multiple sclerosis), trauma (e.g., spinal cord injury), or infections (e.g., chronic prostatitis) that were associated with the onset of PE symptoms and considered a potential cause of PE

    Has taken an investigational drug within 1 month of the screening visit or within a period of less than 5 times the drugs half-life, whichever is longer or used an experimental medical device within 6 months of the screening visit

    Has taken disallowed medication and has not completed the required washout period (Attachment 1, Washout Requirements for Selected Medications/Treatments)

    Positive diagnosis of depressive or anxiety disorder, dysthymia, suicidality, (hypo) manic episode, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, alcohol abuse and dependence, non-alcohol psychoactive substance use disorder, or psychotic disorders based on the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (M.I.N.I.)

    Has a history of drug abuse within the past 2 years

    Has a history of or current major psychiatric disorder such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, other psychotic disorders, or alcoholism. Subjects meeting DSM-IV-TR diagnosis for a current depressive or anxiety disorder, or subjects who received any treatment (pharmacotherapy and/or psychotherapy) for a depressive or anxiety disorder within the past 2 years, must also be excluded. (Subjects who report anxiety primarily centering on sexual performance/PE may be included)

    Has significant problems with other forms of sexual dysfunction, such as decreased interest in sexual intercourse inhibited or absent orgasm or ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction (ED)

    Currently receiving treatment for ED or has a score of <21 in the Erectile Function Domain of the International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire (IIEF, Questions 1 through 5 and 15)

    History of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), or hepatitis C

    Subjects with hyperprolactinemia and untreated or insufficiently treated hypothyroidism

    Has a known allergy or hypersensitivity to SSRIs or serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs)
