  • 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   40666   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6638   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine the efficacy of oral eltrombopag, when administered once daily, for 6 months duration, to previously treated adult subjects with chronic ITP
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To assess ability of eltrombopag to prevent use of rescue treatment
    • To describe pharmacodynamics & durability of eltrombopag response
    • To determine efficacy of oral eltrombopag, when administered once daily for 6 weeks

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Subject has signed and dated a written informed consent.
    2. Adults (18 years) diagnosed with chronic ITP according to the American Society for Hematology/British Committee for Standards in Hematology (ASH/BCSH) guidelines [George, 1996; BCSH, 2003], and platelet count < 30,000/L on Day 1 (or within 24 hours prior to dosing on Day 1). In addition, a peripheral blood smear should support the diagnosis of ITP with no evidence of other causes of thrombocytopenia (e.g. pseudothrombocytopenia, myelofibrosis). The physical examination should be normal or at least not show signs suggestive of any disease other than ITP which may cause thrombocytopenia.
    3. Subjects who have previously received one or more prior ITP therapies. Previous treatments for ITP include but are not limited to corticosteroids, immunoglobulins, azathioprine, danazol, cyclophosphamide and/or rituximab.
    4. Subjects must have either initially responded (platelet count > 100,000/L) to a previous ITP therapy or have had a bone marrow biopsy consistent with ITP within 3 years to rule out myelodysplasia or other causes of thrombocytopenia.
    5. Previous therapy for ITP with immunoglobulins (IVIg and anti-D), and cyclophosphamide must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to randomization. Treatment with rituximab must have been completed at least 12 weeks prior to randomization. Subjects who have had a splenectomy must have had the procedure performed at least 4 weeks prior to randomization.
    6. Subjects treated with corticosteroids, must be receiving a dose that has been stable (dose change of +/- 5% is acceptable) for at least 1 month prior to randomization. Subjects treated with cyclosporine A, mycophenolate mofetil, azathioprine or danazol must be receiving a dose that has been stable (dose change of +/- 5% is acceptable) for at least 3 months prior randomization. The medication should be continued with a stable dose for the initial 6 weeks of study (See Section 9.1.2, “Concomitant ITP Therapy”)
    7. Normal prothrombin time (PT/INR) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), no history of hypercoagulable state.
    8. A complete blood count (CBC), within the reference range (including WBC differential not indicative of a disorder other than ITP), with the following exceptions:
    • < 30,000 platelets/L on Day 1 (or within 24 hours of Day 1) is required for inclusion,
    • Hemoglobin: Subjects with hemoglobin levels between 10 g/dL (100 g/L) and the lower limit of normal are eligible for inclusion, if anemia is clearly attributable to ITP (excessive blood loss).
    • ANC  1500/L (1.5 x 109/L) is required for inclusion (elevated WBC/ANC due to steroid treatment is acceptable).
    9. The following clinical chemistries MUST be within the normal reference range: creatinine, ALT, AST, total bilirubin, total albumin and alkaline phosphatase.
    10. Subject is practicing an acceptable method of contraception (documented in chart). Female subjects (or female partners of male subjects) must either be of non-childbearing potential (hysterectomy, bilateral oopherectomy, bilateral tubal ligation or post-menopausal > 1 year), or of childbearing potential and use one of the following acceptable methods of contraception from two weeks prior to administration of study medication, throughout the study, and 28 days after completion or premature discontinuation from the study:
    • Complete abstinence from intercourse;
    • Intrauterine device (IUD);
    • Two forms of barrier contraception (diaphragm plus spermicide, and for males condom plus spermicide);
    • Male partner is sterile prior to entry into the study and is the only partner of the female;
    • Systemic contraceptives (combined or progesterone only).
    11. Subject is able to understand and comply with protocol requirements and instructions and intends to complete the study as planned.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Any clinically relevant abnormality, other than ITP, identified on the screening examination or any other medical condition or circumstance, which in the opinion of the investigator makes the subject unsuitable for participation in the study or suggests a diagnosis other than ITP.
    2. History of malignancy. NOTE: Patients with a history of completely resected non-melanomatous skin carcinoma or successfully treated in situ carcinoma are eligible.
    3. Any prior history of arterial or venous thrombosis (stroke, transient ischemic attack, myocardial infarction, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism), AND  two of the following risk factors: Factor V Leiden, hormone replacement therapy, systemic contraception (containing estrogen), smoking, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, medication for hypertension or cancer.
    4. Pre-existing cardiac disease (including congestive heart failure, and arrhythmia requiring treatment), or clinically significant findings on resting 12-lead ECG at screening.
    5. Female subjects who are nursing or pregnant (positive serum or urine -human chorionic gonadotrophin pregnancy test) at screening or pre-dose on Day 1.
    6. History of alcohol/drug abuse.
    7. Treatment with an investigational drug within 30 days or five half-lives (whichever is longer) preceding the first dose of study medication.
    8. Subject treated with aspirin, aspirin-containing compounds, salicylates, anti-coagulants, quinine or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs) for > 3 consecutive days within 2 weeks of the study start and until the end of the study.
    9. Consumption of any herbal or dietary supplements, excluding vitamin or mineral supplements (See Section 9.1.1, for instructions on taking calcium and vitamin supplements), within 1 week of the study start. Subjects that consumed rosuvastatin or pravastatin within 1 week of the first dose of study medication and/or will require these medications during the 6 month dosing period.
    10. History of platelet agglutination abnormality that prevents reliable measurement of platelet counts.
    11. All subjects with secondary immune thrombocytopenia, including those with laboratory or clinical evidence of HIV infection, anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome, chronic hepatitis B infection, hepatitis C virus infection, or any evidence for active hepatitis at the time of subject screening. If a potential subject has no clinical history that would support HIV infection or hepatitis infection, no further laboratory screening is necessary; however, standard medical practice would suggest further evaluation of patients who have risk factors for these infections.
    12. Previous participation in a clinical study with eltrombopag.
    13. Patients planning to have cataract surgery.
    14. In France, a subject is neither affiliated with nor a beneficiary of a social security category.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the odds of achieving a platelet count at or 50,000/microL and ≤ 400,000/microL during the 6 month treatment period, for subjects receiving eltrombopag relative to placebo
