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   43884   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7296   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 primary objective is to assess difference in PASI scores between week 12 score of the first study C87040 and week 12 score of re-treatment (study C87044).

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The efficacy objectives will be to describe:
    - the evolution of the response during re-treatment using PASI and PGA scales as well as BSA affected by psoriasis,
    - the time to discontinuation from re-treatment due to lack of efficacy
    - the best re-treatment effect
    - the evolution of Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL)

    The PK profile of CDP870 as well as the development of anti-CDP870 antibodies will be assessed.

    The safety /tolerance will be described.

    Efficacy, safety and PK data will be analyzed using the data from studies C87040 and C87044 for subjects having participated in both studies
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    To be eligible to participate in this study, all of the following criteria must be met:

    •Female subject either postmenopausal for at least one year, surgically incapable of childbearing, or effectively practicing an acceptable method of contraception (oral or parenteral hormonal contraceptives; intrauterine device; barrier and spermicide. Abstinence is not an acceptable method). Subjects must agree to continue to use adequate contraception during the study and for 12 weeks after the last dose of CDP870.
    •Subject having a social security system (applicable for France only)

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects must be excluded if they meet any of the following criteria:

    •Systemic Lupus Erythematosus;
    •History of significant adverse reaction to biological products or polyethylene glycol;
    Tuberculosis positive defined as positive induration ≥ 5 mm PPD skin test (subjects with a positive PPD skin test associated with previous vaccination where there is no clinical or radiographic suspicion of TB maybe enrolled at the discretion of the Investigator);
    •Participation in a clinical study within the past 3 months except study C87040
    •Current or past intake of the following treatments with the here below specified wash out periods before visit 1. These treatments remain also forbidden during the whole trial period i.e. until final visit V9:
    Wash out period = 6 months
    -Any other antipsoriatic biological agent under investigation other than CDP870

    Wash out period = 3 months

    Wash out period = 2 months

    Wash out period = 4 weeks
    -Systemic retinoids
    -Systemic immunosuppressants agents (eg: methotrexate, cyclosporine, azathioprine, thioguanine)
    -Systemic fumarate
    -Systemic corticosteroids
    -Phototherapy or photochemotherapy
    -High potency topical corticosteroids (class I and II)
    -Any other antipsoriatic agent under investigation

    Wash out period = 2 weeks
    -Moderate potency (class III to V) topical corticosteroids (except if applied on the scalp, palms, groin, anal fold and/or soles)
    -Vitamin D analogues and topical retinoïds (except if applied on the scalp, palms, groin, anal fold and/or soles)
    -Keratolitic and coal tar (except if applied on the scalp, palms, groin, anal fold and/or soles)

    •Subjects having experienced a rebound reaction in study C87040
    •Poor compliance with visit schedule or medication intake in study C87040
    •Any other condition, which in the Investigator’s judgment would make the subject unsuitable for inclusion in the study.

    If the investigator has any medically valid reason to doubt the eligibility of a subject, the subject should not be included into the trial. If, however, the Investigator has any other kind of doubts concerning the eligibility, he/she should consult the Sponsor Study Physician for clarification

    E.5 End points

    Safety variables
    •Frequency, severity, nature and duration of adverse events reported by the subjects during the whole duration of the 2 studies (C87040 and C87044).
    •Physical examination abnormalities, evaluated monthly.
