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   43976   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    A secondary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability. Other secondary objectives are pharmacokinetics, exploratory pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenetics of AZD1981 given at repeated oral doses.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Provision of ICF (Informed Consent Form) could be obtained at an information
    visit prior to Visit 1 or at Visit 1 (according to local regulations), but before any
    study related procedures has been performed.
    2. Men and post menopausal or surgically sterilized women, aged 18-60 years.
    Women will be considered post menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for at
    least 12 months, and an FSH plasma concentration within the post menopausal
    range as defined by the laboratory.
    3. Minimum of 6 month’s documented history of asthma according to the ATS
    definition (ATS 1987).
    4. Daily use of ≤400 µg inhaled GCS during 30 days prior to Visit 1.
    5. FEV1 ≥60 - <100% of predicted normal value pre-bronchodilator.
    6. Reversible airway obstruction either according to the reversibility test performed
    at Visit 1, or as historic data found in medical record (not older than 2 years)
    Reversibility is defined as an increase in FEV1 of ≥12% relative baseline and
    ≥200 mL after an inhalation of in total 1 mg Bricanyl Turbuhaler. If not fulfilled at
    Visit 1, criterion No 11 should be fulfilled at Visit 2.
    7. The patient must not have had a clinically important asthma exacerbation, as
    judged by the investigator, one month before Visit 1.
    8. A positive skin prick test to airway allergens (at least one) such as: pollen from
    birch, grass, or mugwort, animal fur for example dog, cat, horse, or house dust
    mite at Visit 1 or as historic data found in medical records not older than 2 years.
    9. Able to read and write and use electronic devices.
    10. Use of as-needed medication at least 4 times during the last week of the run-in
    11. If the reversibility criterion is not met at Visit 1 (either from historic data or
    from the spirometry measurement) the patient must either show an increase in
    FEV1 of ≥12% relative baseline and ≥200 mL after an inhalation of in total 1 mg
    Bricanyl Turbuhaler or show a variation in PEF of at least 20% on at least 2 days
    during the run-in period. This should be calculated as follows: (max PEF - min
    PEF) / max PEF (all values from the same day).
    12. The patient must not have taken more than 12 inhalations of as-needed medication
    on any single day during the run-in period.
    13. The patient must not have had a clinically important asthma exacerbation, as
    judged by the investigator, during the run-in period.
    14. Patients must not have used 8 inhalations or more of as-needed medication/24
    hours on more than 2 days/week (any 7 days period) during the run-in period.
    15. The patient must not have used iGCS during the run-in period.
    16. No clinical relevant abnormal findings in clinical chemistry, haematology, FSH
    (females only), urinalysis, which, in the opinion of the investigator, may put
    patient at risk because of his/her participation in the study.
    17. Provision of informed consent for pharmacogenetic research
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Inability to tolerate withdrawal of asthma therapy as required for the study.
    2. Hospitalisation for asthma within the last 2 years prior to Visit 1.
    3. Respiratory infection significantly affecting the asthma, as judged by the
    investigator, within 30 days prior to Visit 1.
    4. Any of the following:
    - current smoker,
    - patient with a history of smoking for more than 10 pack years (one pack year= 1
    pack (20 cigarettes) per day for 1 year or equivalent),
    - ex-smoker since less than 1 year.
    5. Body Mass Index (BMI) <18 kg/m 2 and body weight <50 kg.
    6. A history of additional risk factors for Torsade de pointes (eg, heart failure,
    hypokalemia, family history of Long QT syndrome).
    7. Use of concomitant medications that prolong the QT/QTc interval other than
    terbutaline or albuterol.
    8. Use of β -blocker medication (including eye-drops)
    9. Pregnancy or breast feeding.
    10. Any significant disorder (eg, cardiovascular, pulmonary (other than asthma),
    gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, neurological, musculosceletal, infectious,
    endocrine, metabolic, malignant, psychiatric, major physical impairment) which,
    in the opinion of the investigator, either put the patient at risk because of
    participating in the study or may influence the results of the study, or the patients
    ability to participate in the study.
    11. Any clinical relevant abnormal findings in physical examination, pulse, blood
    pressure or ECG at Visit 1, which, in the opinion of the investigator, may put
    patient at risk because of his/her participation in the study.
    12. Previous randomisation of treatment into the present study, see Section 3.5.
    13. Planned hospitalisation during the course of the study.
