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   37700   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6177   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.

    3. Fifty to 85 years of age inclusive.
    4. Female subjects must be post-menopausal (i.e. >24 weeks without menstrual period) or surgically sterile. Female subjects who have been post-menopausal for < 2 years must undertake pregnancy testing (βhCG) at Visit 1, which must be negative.
    5. Subject has the ability to comply with procedures for cognitive and other testing.
    6. Subject lives with (or has substantial periods of contact with) a permanent caregiver who is willing to attend all visits, oversee the subject's compliance with protocol-specified procedures and study medication, and report on subject's status. (Subjects living in a nursing home are not eligible.)
    7. Subject has provided full written informed consent prior to the performance of any protocol-specified procedure; or if unable to provide informed consent due to cognitive status, full written informed consent on behalf of the subject has been provided by a legally acceptable representative.
    8. Caregiver has provided full written informed consent on his/her own behalf prior to the performance of any protocol-specified procedure.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A subject will not be eligible for inclusion in this study if any of the following criteria apply:

    Other Causes for Dementia
    1. Diagnosis of possible, probable or definite vascular dementia in accordance with National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke-Association Internationale pour la Recherche l’Enseignement en Neurosciences (NINDS-AIREN) criteria.
    2. History and/or evidence (CT or MRI scan performed within the past 12 months or at Screening) of any other central nervous system (CNS) disorder that could be interpreted as a cause of dementia: e.g. cerebrovascular disease, structural or developmental abnormality, epilepsy, infectious, degenerative or inflammatory/demyelinating CNS conditions.
    3. Focal findings on the neurological exam (excluding changes attributable to peripheral injury).
    4. Untreated abnormal result of any of the following tests: vitamin B12, syphilis serology, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), where this is thought to be the cause of, or to contribute to the severity of, the subject’s dementia.

    Confounding Medical Conditions
    5. History of significant psychiatric illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder that in the opinion of the Investigator would interfere with participation in the study, or current depression (score on Centre for Epidemiological Studies - Depression Scale (CES-D) >18).
    6. History of known or suspected seizures, including febrile seizures, unexplained recent loss of consciousness or history of significant head trauma with loss of consciousness.
    7. Known history of photosensitivity or presence of skin conditions (such as porphyria, photo-dermatitis) or treatments (such as medications, UV light) that may predispose the subject to photosensitivity reactions
    8. History or presence of significant cardiovascular, gastro-intestinal, hepatic, or renal disease or other condition known to interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of drugs, or any other clinically relevant abnormality, medical or psychiatric condition, which, in the opinion of the Investigator, makes the subject unsuitable for inclusion in the study.
    9. History of alcohol or other substance abuse, according to the DSM-IV criteria.

    Concomitant Medications
    10. Treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors (including tacrine), memantine or selegiline is not permitted:
    • within the past 3 months

    12. Use of the following is not permitted unless prescribed at a stable dose for at least 2 months prior to screening (changes to dose during the study must be discussed with the medical monitor):
    • Antidepressants (other than monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors)
    • Vitamin E
    • Gingko biloba
    • Statins
    • Thyroid hormones

    14. Postural hypotension (fall in systolic blood pressure of >30mmHg or fall in diastolic blood pressure of >20mmHg on standing compared to supine).
    15. Abnormal liver/kidney function tests (more than 1.5 times normal).
    16. Calculated creatinine clearance < 40ml/min (Cockroft-Gault formula) and/or clinically relevant finding on urinalysis, including microscopy (such as: more than 1+ protein or blood, significant abnormality in albumin/creatinine ratio, etc.)
    17. Subject is unable (with assistance, if appropriate) to take study medication as prescribed throughout the study, has a history of non-compliance with prescribed medication, or is at risk of non-compliance with study medication or procedures.
