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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1.The subject or subject’s legally authorized representative has provided signed informed consent 2.The subject is within 18 to 70 years of age, 3. The subject is suffering from severe to moderately severe Haemophilia A (basal level of factor VIII &amp;#8804;2% of normal) at screenig.A subgroup of 15 subjects in each group will show a basal level of factor VIII <1% of normal. 4.The aPTT must be within the range of normal after administration of F VIII concentrate, ad determined in the preoperative pharmacokinetic evaluation, or as documented in the medical history, if available. 5 The subject is scheduled to undergo an elective unilateral primary total knee replacement (with cemented or uncemented prothesis) 6. The subject has a documented history of at least 150 exposure days to factor VIII concentrates, before entering the study. 6.HIV positive subjects must be immunocompetent as determined with a CD4 count&amp;#8805; 400 cells/mm³ (CD4 at screening), but HIV negative subjects with CD count <400 qualify, if immunocompetency is documented. 8. The subject has a life expectancy of at least 28 days from the day of surgery
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. The subject has an history of factor VIII inhibitors or a detectable factor VIII inhibitors at screening with a titer &amp;#8805; 0,4 BU; 2.The subject has an history of factor VIII inhibitors with a titer &amp;#8805; 0,4 BU(by Nijmegen assay)or &amp;#8805;0,5 BU (by Bethesda assay)at any time prior to screening 3. The subject is scheduled to undergo any other current minor or major surgery during the course of the study.The placement of a central venous lines and the performance of fine needle aspiration biopsies are permitted; 4.Excluding hemophilia-related physical impairments, the subject is assigned to NYHA&amp;#8805;III according to New York Heart Association classification. 5. The subject with an abnormal renal function (serum creatinine >1.5mg/dL), 6. an active hepatic disease( [ALT]or [AST] levels >5 times the upper limit of normal), 7. a severe chronic liver disease (as evidenced by but not limited to INR >1.4, hypoalbuminemia,portal vein hypertansion, including presence of otherwise unexplained splenomegaly and history of esophageal varices, 9.The subject is currently receiving or scheduled to receive an immunomodulating drug other than antiretroviral chemotherapy; 10.a known hypersensitivity to mouse or hampster proteins. 11.The subject has received another investigational drug within 30 days prior to the screening and /or is scheduled to recieve additional investigational drug during the course of the trial in the context of another investigational drug study. 12.The subject is identified by the investigator as being unable or unwilling to cooperate with the study procedures.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint, the cumulative volume of PRBC in the drainage fluid during the first 24 hours after surgery, will be used to establish the non-inferiority of CI compared to BI. A one-way t-test at a 2.5% level of statistical significance on the transformed logarithmic data will test the null hypothesis that the average PRBC volume with CI is 200% of the average with BI, as opposed to the alternative hypothesis, which is lower. This is equivalent to the higher confidence limit of a 95% two-way confidence interval for an average percentage not exceeding 200%.
