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   42567   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7008   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Die Friedreich Ataxie (FRDA) ist eine autosomal-rezessiv vererbte, progressive neurodegenerative Erkrankung, die mit einer Inzidenz von rund 1:50.000 auftritt. Es handelt sich dabei um die am häufigsten vorkommende Ataxie beim Menschen. Sie manifestiert sich klinisch initial als spinozerebelläre Ataxie, im weiteren Krankheitsverlauf tritt meist eine hypertrophe Kardiomyopathie hinzu, deren Komplikationen häufig für den frühen Tod der Patienten verantwortlich sind.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Basierend auf eigenen in-vitro Voruntersuchungen soll nun im Rahmen einer Pilotstudie die Sicherheit und Wirksamkeit von Erythropoetin in der Behandlung von Patienten mit Friedreich Ataxie untersucht werden. Diese Untersuchung stellt nach bisher frustranen Therapieversuchen (z.B. Desoxyferramin, Idebenone) einen gänzlich neuen Therapieansatz dar.
    HAUPTZIELKRITERIUM: Stabile Aufregulierung von FRATAXIN bei Patienten mit Friedreich Ataxie über 8 Wochen.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    NEBENZIELKRITERIEN: Klinische Evaluierung nach 12 Monaten mittels Rating Scales (Ataxie, Lebensqualität), klinische Surogatmarker (MRI, SSEP), stabile Frataxinaufregulierung über 1 Jahr.
