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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.

    6. Anticipated need to initiate or change doses of current systemic immunosuppression or systemic corticosteroids during the first 6 weeks of the study
    7. Any condition (including inability to read visual acuity charts or language barrier) that precludes patient’s ability to comply with study requirements including completion of the study
    8. Patient has a condition or is in a situation that in the investigator's opinion may put the patient at significant risk, may confound the study results, or may interfere significantly with the patient's participation in the study
    Ocular exclusion criteria:
    1. Previous enrollment in a DEX PS DDS clinical trial
    2. IOP > 21 mm Hg at screening or baseline
    3. History of clinically significant IOP elevation in response to corticosteroid treatment in either eye (defined as an increase of >10 mm Hg and an absolute IOP of ≥25 mm Hg without the use of anti-glaucoma medications) unless there is a functioning trabeculectomy or seton (with IOP <18 mm Hg at screening and baseline) and there is no significant visual field loss in the investigator’s opinion

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy variable is the anterior chamber cell score measured by biomicroscopy and based on the cell count, as follows:
    0 = 0 cells*
    +0.5 = 1 – 5 cells (trace)**
    +1 = 6 – 15 cells
    +2 = 16 – 25 cells
    +3 = 26 – 50 cells
    +4 = > 50 cells

    Note hypopyon if present.

    * Rare cells, defined as < 1 cell seen per field, should be graded as zero
    ** Record actual cell count on Case Report Form for +0.5 grade only

    There is no primary safety endpoint for the study.

An answer of yes could have included women of child bearing potential whether or not they would be using contraception. The answer should therefore be understood in that context. This trial was recorded in the database on 2006-07-03. Yes

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    Once patients have exited from the study, the investigator will be responsible for either continuing their care personally (at the same hospital), or referring them back to their regular ophthalmologist. In either case, patients will be treated according to current best clinical practice with existing treatments.
