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   36348   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5989   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Symptoms from the upper gastrointestinal tract
    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
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of the RDQ as a diagnostic test for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Symptom evaluation by the RDQ will be compared with other established approaches to the diagnosis of GERD in a primary care patient population with symptoms thought to be of upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract origin.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. To estimate the sensitivity and specificity of the selection of RDQ items, endoscopy, esophageal pH monitoring, response to proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and Symptom Association Probability (SAP) as diagnostic tests for GERD by using Latent Class Analysis (LCA) and Bayesian statistics
    2. To estimate the prevalence of GERD with LCA and Bayesian statistics
    3. To describe the study population at the initial and last visit with the Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS) dimensions in the whole study population and by GERD diagnosis
    4. To estimate responsiveness of the RDQ during therapy in subjects categorised as having or not having GERD
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    For inclusion in the study, subjects must fulfil all of the following criteria:
    1. Subjects must have provided informed consent in writing for the participation in this study
    2. Subjects aged 18 to 79 years inclusive, male or female
    3. Subjects who seek medical advice in primary care for symptoms thought by the PCP to arise from the upper GI tract (any of those symptoms listed in Table 3)
    4. The symptoms thought to pertain to the upper GI tract must have been present for at least 4 weeks prior to Visit 1 and to have occurred at least twice a week during that period
    5. The symptoms thought to pertain to the upper GI tract must have been of at least mild severity for a minimum of 3 days during the week prior to Visit 1
    6. Subjects judged to be capable to understand and to complete diaries and questionnaires reliably.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Any of the following is regarded as a criterion for exclusion from the study:
    1. Upper GI endoscopy performed within a year prior to Visit 1
    2. Previous anti-reflux surgery, surgery for peptic ulcer or any form of upper gastrointestinal resective surgery
    3. Contra-indication to the Bravo™ procedure such as subjects with a history of bleeding diathesis, strictures anywhere along the GI-tract, esophageal varices, obstructions, or subjects equipped with a pacemaker, an implantable cardiac defibrillator or an implantable neurostimulator (NB: subjects with LA Grade D confirmed by endoscopy at Visit 2 can continue the study without performing the Bravo™ procedure)
    4. Any use of PPIs within 2 months prior to Visit 1, including those obtained OTC
    5. Use of the following drug therapy within 4 weeks prior to Visit 1:
    - Daily use of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) at any dose greater than 165 mg
    - Daily use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including
    COX-2 inhibitors at any dose
    6. Presence of any alarm features, such as:
    - Unintentional weight loss >3 kg in the previous 3 months
    - Haematemesis, melaena or per-rectum blood loss in the previous year
    - Progressive dysphagia
    - Anaemia
    - Any other symptom suggestive of malignancy
    7. Any significant past or current disease or disorder (e.g.; cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, neurological, musculoskeletal, endocrine, malignant, or psychiatric), as revealed by history, physical examination or laboratory assessments, which, in the opinion of the investigator, may put the subject at risk, alter their performance or influence the subject’s ability to participate in the study
    8. Unwillingness to undergo endoscopy, esophageal pH monitoring or to complete any other standard assessments used in the study
    9. History of alcohol or drug abuse in the last two years or any condition associated with poor compliance, including expected non-cooperation, as judged by the investigator
    10. Pregnancy or lactation. Women of childbearing potential must maintain effective contraception during the study period, as judged by the investigator
    11. Treatment with phenytoin, warfarin (or other vitamin K antagonists), ketoconazole, itraconazole and cisapride
    12. Planned donation of blood during the study period
    13. Planned hospitalisation during the study period
    14. Involvement in the planning and conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff or staff at the study site)
    15. Treatment with any medicinal investigational product within 30 days prior to Visit 1 or within another time-frame according to local requirements, if applicable
    16. Previous enrolment in the present study
    17. Participation as a subject in any other medical research project during and in the 4 weeks prior to the start of the study
    In addition to the above, the following criterion excludes the subject from participation into the study at Visit 2:
    18. Any findings at endoscopy that make further participation in the study clinically inappropriate as judged by the investigator, such as suspected malignancy or evidence of clinically significant gastrointestinal bleeding (i.e. visible vessel or other stigmata of current bleeding) [NB: Subjects with macroscopic Barrett’s esophagus (defined as subjects with endoscopic indications of any columnar lined epithelium in the esophagus) are not to be excluded; Subjects with LA Grade D confirmed by endoscopy at Visit 2 can continue the study without performing the Bravo™ procedure.].
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    There are no primary end point in this study.

    Based on the selection of RDQ items and the various methods of diagnosing
    GERD, i.e. presence/absence of GERD as assessed by endoscopic Los Angeles (LA) grade, pH monitoring (% time with esophageal pH<4), SAP, outcome of PPI test, the primary variables are the cut-off level(s), sensitivity, specificity and predictive abilities of the RDQ score(s) (ROC curve and c-statistic), as assessed against each other diagnostic tool in use in this study
