Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The overall objective is to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of Myozyme treatment in patients with late-onset Pompe disease as compared to placebo.

    The primary objectives of the study are: 1) to evaluate the safety profile of Myozyme; 2) to determine the effect of Myozyme treatment on functional endurance as measured by the Six Minute Walk Test (6MWT) 3) to determine the effect of Myozyme treatment on respiratory muscle weakness as measured by Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) in the upright position ; and 4) to determine in a subset of patients the PK profile of Myozyme in patients with late-onset Pompe disease. The study wil be considered to have met its primary efficacy objective if a statistically significant treatment effect of Myozyme over placebo is demonstrated in the 6 MWT distance walked.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives are: 1) to determine the effect of Myozyme treatment on proximal muscle weakness in the lower limbs as measured by Quantitative Muscle Testing (QMT) in bilateral knee flexors (hamstrings) and knee extensors (quadriceps); 2) to determine the effect of Myozyme treatment on health-related quality of life as measured by the Physical Component Summary (PCS) score of the Medical Outcomes Study (MOS) SF-36.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. The patient must provide signed, informed consent prior to performing any study-related procedures. Consent of a legally authorized guardian(s) is (are) required for patients under 18 years of age. If the patient is under 18 years of age and can understand the written informed consent, signature will be required from both the patient and the authorized guardian(s); 2. The patient must have a diagnosis of Pompe disease based on deficient endogenous GAA activity in cultured skin fibroblasts of ≤ 40% of the normal mean of the testing laboratory and 2 confirmed GAA gene mutations; 3. The patient must be ≥ 8 years of age at the time of enrollment; 4. The patient must have muscle weakness in the lower limbs based on unilateral QMT of the knee extensors defined as < 80% of the predicted value based on age, gender and body size (The National Isometric Muscle Strength [NIMS] Database Consortium, 1996, Arch Phys Med Rehabil); 5. The patient must be able to tolerate pulmonary function testing (PFT) and muscle testing in the supine position. (See exclusion criteria [1] and [2].); 6. The patient must be able to provide reproducible muscle and pulmonary function test results (bilateral
    QMT measurements [% predicted] in knee extensors within 10% of the highest test value obtained from the same side of the body on 2 consecutive days and FVC measurements [in liters] within 10% of the highest test value obtained in the upright position on 2 consecutive days); 7. The patient must have an FVC of ≥ 30% and < 80% predicted in the upright position (American Thoracic Society [ATS], 1991, Am Rev Respir Disease); 8. The patient must have an FEV1/FVC value of ≥ 70% predicted in the upright position (ATS, 1991, Am Rev Respir Disease); 9. The patient must have a postural drop in FVC (liters) of at least 10% from the upright to the supine position [(FVC supine (L) – FVC upright (L))/FVC upright (L)] * 100%; 10. The patient must have testable muscle in bilateral knee flexors and knee extensors, and testable muscle in bilateral elbow flexors and elbow extensors. (Using QMT, a muscle will be defined as “not testable” if the patient: 1) has a contracture > 90 degrees that would keep them from being able to assume the standard testing position, 2) is unable to follow directions, 3) has significant pain with resistance to the motion, or 4) is so weak that force cannot be generated against the testing strap); 11. The patient must be able to ambulate 40 meters (approximately 130 feet) in 6 minutes on each of 2 consecutive tests performed on the same day (use of assistive devices such as a walker, cane, or crutches, is permitted); 12. The patient (and patient’s legal guardian if patient <18 years of age) must have the ability to comply with the clinical protocol; 13. A female patient of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test (urine beta-human chorionic gonadotropin [β-hCG]) at Baseline. Note: All female patients of childbearing potential and sexually mature males must use a medically accepted method of contraception throughout the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. The patient requires the use of invasive ventilatory support. (Invasive ventilation is defined as any form of ventilatory support applied with the use of an endotracheal tube.); 2. The patient requires the use of noninvasive ventilatory support while awake and in an upright position. (Noninvasive ventilation is defined as any form of ventilatory support applied without the use of an endotracheal tube. For example, patients receiving positive-pressure ventilation support through a facemask or nose piece are considered as ventilated through noninvasive methods.); 3. The patient has received enzyme replacement therapy with GAA from any source; 4. The patient has used an investigational product within 30 days prior to study enrollment, or is currently enrolled in another study which involves clinical evaluations, unless prior approval is given by Genzyme; 5. The patient has a medical condition, serious intercurrent illness, or other extenuating circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may significantly interfere with study compliance, including all prescribed evaluations and follow-up activities; 6. The patient has a major congenital anomaly.
