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   41232   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6757   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary objective:
    to determine whether DAC HYP, when compared to placebo, is effective in reducing the rate of relapes between baseline and week 52.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To determine whether DAC HYP is effective in:
    • reducing the number of new Gd-enhancing lesions over 5 brain MRI scans at weeks 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 (calculated as the sum of these 5 MRIs) in a subset of subjects,
    • reducing the number of new or newly-enlarging T2 hyperintense lesions at Week 52,
    • reducing the proportion of relapsing subjects between baseline and week 52
    • improving quality of life as measured by the MSIS-29 physical score at Week 24 compared to baseline.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Must give written informed consent and any authorizations required by local law
    2. Must be 18 to 55 years of age, inclusive, at the time of informed consent.
    3. Must have a confirmed diagnosis of relapsing-remitting MS according to McDonald
    criteria #1-4
    4. Must have a baseline EDSS between 0.0 and 5.0, inclusive.
    5. Must meet either of the following 2 criteria:
    a) Have experienced at least 1 relapse within the 12 months prior to randomization, with a cranial MRI demonstrating lesion(s) consistent with MS (it is not necessary to
    obtain a current scan if a scan performed previously is available from the subject’s
    history; if a scan is not available from the subject’s history, then the baseline scan
    may be used). For inclusion purposes, a relapse is defined as neurologic signs and/or
    symptoms documented by a neurologist in the medical record and of at least 24 hours duration to be determined by the Investigator or the Treating Neurologist. Time since relapse should be measured from the time of relapse onset, OR
    b) Show evidence of Gd-enhancing lesions of the brain on an MRI performed within the 6 weeks prior to randomization (if scan is not available from the subject’s history,
    then baseline scan may be used).
    6. Male subjects and female subjects of child-bearing potential must be willing to practice effective contraception during the study and be willing and able to continue
    contraception for 4 months after their last dose of study treatment.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Diagnosis of primary progressive, secondary progressive, or progressive relapsing MS
    2. History of malignancy; however, subjects with a history of excised or treated basal cell carcinoma or fewer than 3 squamous sell carcinomas are eligible to participate in this study.
    3. History of severe allergic or anaphylactic reactions or known drug hypersensitivity.
    4. History of abnormal laboratory results that, in the opinion of the investigator, are
    indicative of any significant cardiac, endocrinologic, hematologic, hepatic, immunologic, metabolic, urologic, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, dermatologic,
    psychiatric, renal, neurologic (other than MS), and/or other major disease that would preclude administration of DAC HYP.
    5. History of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or other immunodeficient conditions.
    6. History of drug or alcohol abuse (as defined by the Investigator) within the 2 years prior to randomization.
    7. An MS relapse that has occurred within the 50 days prior to randomization AND/OR the subject has not stabilized from a previous relapse prior to randomization.
    8. Positive screening for active infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus
    9. Varicella or herpes zoster virus infection or any severe viral infection within 6 weeks before Screening.
    10. Exposure to varicella zoster virus within 21 days before Screening.

    • Any of the following types of live virus vaccine from 4 weeks before randomization:
    measles/mumps/rubella vaccine, varicella zoster virus vaccine, oral polio vaccine, and
    nasal influenza vaccine. Use of these vaccines, however, by other members of the
    subject’s household does not affect the eligibility of patients to enroll or continue in the study.
    • Infection (viral, fungal, bacterial) requiring hospitalization or intravenous (IV)
    antibiotics within 8 weeks before randomization.
    • Elective surgery performed from 2 weeks prior to randomization or scheduled through the end of the study.
