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   36614   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6046   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
    The primary objective of this study will be to determine the efficacy of s-pindolol in the treatment of FD (NUD), based on the patient’s global impression
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary efficacy end-points will include:
    i) The change from baseline in patient’s global severity of illness scale compared to placebo.
    ii) The change from baseline in severity of gastrointestinal symptoms scale compared to placebo (upper abdominal pain/discomfort, upper abdominal fullness, early satiety, bloating, nausea, composite of all symptoms).
    iii) The change from baseline in Quality of Life (QOL) Assessment compared to placebo.
    iv) The use of rescue medication compared to placebo.

    Daily data for the patient global impression, patient’s global severity of illness scale, severity of gastrointestinal symptoms scale and rescue medication will be collected for observation purposes.

    Safety of AGI 001 in doses of 2.5mg, 5mg and 7.5mg t.i.d will be evaluated by assessing adverse events, abnormal laboratory values, heart rate and the mean seated and standing diastolic blood pressure compared to placebo.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) Be aged 18-70 years
    2) Have pain/discomfort centred in the upper abdomen, which may be characterised by or associated with upper abdominal fullness, early satiety, bloating, or nausea on a minimum of 8 days, which need not be consecutive within 8-14 days prior to the randomisation visit. A patient may be considered for randomisation at any time during the run-in period, provided they have had pain/discomfort centred in the upper abdomen on at least 8 days.
    3) Fulfil Rome II criteria (modified) for functional dyspepsia i.e. in the last three months symptoms were present often (at least three weeks, at least one day a week) of:

    a. Persistent or recurrent symptoms (pain or discomfort centred in the upper abdomen);
    b. May be characterised by or associated with upper abdominal fullness, early satiety, bloating, or nausea; and
    c. No evidence of organic disease (including at upper endoscopy) that is likely to explain the symptoms; and
    d. No evidence that dyspepsia is exclusively relieved by defecation or associated with the onset of a change in stool frequency or stool form (i.e., not irritable bowel).

    4) Provide signed written informed consent (Attachment 2).
    5) Must be able to make entries into a touch tone telephone diary on a daily basis.
    6) Must be willing to abstain from taking rescue medication in the run-in phase.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A potential participant may be excluded from the study if he/she:

    1) Has gastroesophageal reflux disease:

    a. Known heartburn as the predominant symptom and/or
    b. Responds to proton pump inhibitors

    2) Has H. pylori infection (can be enrolled if eradicated at least 3 months prior to enrolment and patient is negative for H. pylori at this time). The urea breath test or the CLO™ test will be used to test for H. pylori infection.
    3) Has an identifiable cause, past or current for the symptoms, where if the disease improves or is eliminated, symptoms also improve. This will be assessed by endoscopy performed within 12 months prior to the randomisation visit, providing there has been no change in the patient’s symptoms during this period and will include: oesophageal, gastric or duodenal cancer, chronic peptic ulcer, oesophagitis (grade 2 or above), oesophageal ulceration or stricture or Barrett’s oesophagitis and evidence of prior oesophageal, gastric or duodenal surgery.
    4) Presence or history of biliary tract disease, pancreatitis, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome.
    5) Requires immediate investigation, such as anaemia, unexplained weight loss, abdominal mass on abdominal examination, melaena, dysphagia, haematemesis or first presentation of symptoms in a patient over 50.
    6) Has past or present disease likely to complicate the evaluation of the study treatment, e.g. significant cardiovascular, renal or liver disease, or malignancy.
    7) Is pregnant or lactating. Women of childbearing potential must maintain effective contraception (See Section 5.4).
    8) Uses drugs judged by the Investigator to be the cause of the current episode of dyspeptic symptoms.
    9) Needs regular treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs within one month prior to commencing the study.
    10) Uses daily continuous treatment with omeprazole or other proton pump inhibitors, H2-receptor antagonists, prokinetic agents, mucosal preparations, prostaglandin analogues, anticholinergics or drugs likely to alter 5-HT metabolism (e.g. 5-HT reuptake inhibitors, monoamine oxidase inhibitors), bismuth containing drugs within one month prior to commencing the study.
    11) Has evidence of formal psychiatric illness, apart from depression (not major), which is controlled by antidepressants.
    12) Has past or present alcohol or drug abuse in the opinion of the Investigator.
    13) Has any evidence of cardiovascular disease or is taking any medication active on the cardiovascular system, apart from stable low dose (< 75 mg orally/day) aspirin as prophylaxis.
    14) Has bronchial asthma
    15) Has participated in any other clinical trial within the last month.
    16) Has shown previous intolerance/sensitivity to the study medication.
