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   42891   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7066   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  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
     Pre-pubertal children (boys age: > 3 and <12 years or girls: age >3 and <11 years) with isolated GH insufficiency, GH insufficiency as part of multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies, or organic GH insufficiency. If GH insufficiency occurred after treatment for any brain tumour, the patient has to be at least one year in clinical remission which has to be confirmed by computer tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan (with contrast) within 3 months prior to study entry
     Children with negative signs for intracranial tumour or tumour growth as confirmed with a CT or MRI scan (with contrast) within 12 months prior to inclusion or at inclusion visit
     Confirmed diagnosis of GH insufficiency as determined by two different GH
    provocation tests, defined as a peak plasma GH level of ≤7 ng/ml
     No prior exposure to rhGH therapy (GH-treatment naive)
     Height (HT), except in children suffering from organic GH insufficiency, of at least 2.0 standard deviations (SD) (HT SDS ≤-2.0) below the mean height for chronological age (CA) and sex according to the 2000 standards from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (www.cdc.gov/growthcharts).
     Height velocity (HV) of at least 1 SD (HV SDS ≤-1) below the mean HV for CA and sex according to the standards of Prader et al (1989). The minimum time between two standard height measurements should be at least 6 month before inclusion.
     Baseline IGF-I level of at least 0.5 SD (IGF-1 SDS ≤-0.5) below the mean IGF-1 level standardised for age and sex according to the central laboratory reference values.
     Written informed consent of parent or legal guardian of subject
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
     Any clinically significant abnormality likely to affect growth or the ability to evaluate growth, such as, but not limited to, chronic diseases like renal insufficiency, spinal cord irradiation, and malnutrition (BMI must be above -2SD and below +2SD of mean BMI for the chronological age and sex according to the 2000 CDC standards, and albumin must be above lower limit of normal (LLN) of the central laboratory for a patient to be included).
     Patients with overt diabetes mellitus (Fasting blood sugar >126 mg/dl or 7 mmol/l) and impaired fasting sugar (Fasting blood sugar >100 mg/dl or 5.5 mmol/l after repeated blood analysis)
     Chromosomal abnormalities and medical "syndromes" (Turner's syndrome, Laron syndrome, Noonan syndrome or absence of growth hormone receptors), with the exception of septo-optic dysplasia
     Congenital abnormalities (causing skeletal abnormalities), Russell-Silver Syndrome, skeletal dysplasias
     Closed epiphyses
     Other growth promoting medication such as anabolic steroids, with the exception of pituitary hormone replacement therapy, thyroxine, hydrocortisone and desmopressin (DDAVP) replacement therapies
     Children requiring glucocorticoid therapy (e.g. asthma) that are on the dose of more than 400 µg/d of inhaled budesonide or equivalents inhaled for longer than 1 month during a calendar year
     Bone age (BA) higher than chronological age
     Poorly controlled or uncontrolled pituitary insufficiencies of other axes (e.g.,
    thyroid-stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotropic hormone/cortisol, vasopressin deficiency): Children who are on stable replacement therapy for less than 6 months for thyroid replacement therapy, and less than 3 months for other hormonal deficiencies prior to enrolment
     Major medical conditions and/or presence of contraindication to rhGH treatment
     Known or suspected HIV-positive patient or patient with advanced diseases
    such as AIDS or tuberculosis
     Drug, substance, or alcohol abuse
     Known hypersensitivity to the components of study medication
     Evidence of tumour growth or malignant disease
     Presence of anti-hGH antibodies at screening
     The patient and/or the parent/legal guardian are likely to be non-compliant in respect to study conduct
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the height velocity (HV) at the end of 12 months treatment. The HV developed by patients treated with LB03002 will be compared to the control arm receiving daily dose of Genotropin® 0.03 mg/kg/day using non-inferiority tests.

    Safety endpoints are:
     Incidence of adverse events after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months of treatment;
     Incidence of anti-hGH antibody formation after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     Incidence of anti-S. cerevisiae protein antibody formation after 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months treatment;
     Global tolerability assessment (investigator and patient)
     Investigator's local tolerability assessment;
     Subject's local tolerability assessment;
     IGF-I levels after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     IGFBP-3 levels after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     Difference of IGF-I SDS and IGFBP-3 SDS after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     Blood glucose, fasting insulin level, HbA1c, thyroid panel tests, lipid panel tests, cortisol levels after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     All other haematology and biochemical parameters after 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     Physical examination after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
     Vital signs after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 months treatment;
