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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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
    Study design: a factorial design with four study groups in which btA alone, intensive rehabilitation therapy aimed at improving bimanual skills alone, a combination of these two and continuing the regular therapy program will be compared to each other.
    Study population: children with CP, spastic hemiparesis, aged 2.5 – 12 years.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of Botulinum Toxin A and a specific intensive rehabilitation therapy in children with hemiparetic CP in order to improve the use of their affected arm. For hemiparetic children more and better use of the affected arm in play, leisure time, school activities and personal care is of importance. Therefore, measurements should be aimed at activity level of the ICF and it should be possible to assess and score these measurements blindly. Also it should be possible to discriminate between the effect of the btA injections and the effect of the rehabilitation therapy program.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    If proven effective this treatment approach will be implemented in the participating centres.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    •Age 2,5 – 12 years
    •Cerebral Palsy
    •Hagberg diagnosis: spastic hemiparesis or extreme asymmetric diplegia
    •Hand function impairment Zancolli grade I with evident problems in thumb extension and supination, Zancolli grade IIA and IIB (Zancolli E.A., 1987)
    •Mentally able to comprehend and perform tasks
    •Children and their parents should be able to cope with the intensive rehabilitation therapy programme and the measurement sessions
    •Children and the parents/caregivers should comprehend and speak Dutch
    •Children and their parents indicate the necessity for improvement of the children‘s abilities
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    •Severe structural contractures of the muscles at the extremity to be treated (elbow extension deficit 20 degrees, supination deficit 45 degrees, deficit wrist dorsal flexion 30 degrees or more)
    •Severe impairment of hand function, no active hand function is expected after treatment (Zancolli III)
    •Hand surgery to improve function, or fenolisation or btA injections in the arm less than nine months ago
    •Contra indication for botulinum toxin (children with muscular diseases, like myasthenia gravis, tetanus vaccination less than 3 months before the injection, use of aminoglycoside antibiotics or spectinomycine, known hypersensitivity for human albumin)
    •Contra indication for anaesthesia
    •Children who cannot bare touching the affected arm and hand
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Children will be included according to the inclusion criteria. After the first two measurement sessions, block randomisation takes place in each location (SRL/AZM, VUMC, and Maartenskliniek). To improve the chance of getting groups with equal age distributions, the randomisation will be carried out after stratification in two age groups: 2.5-6 years and 7-12 years. When a block of four children per age stratum and centre is filled, randomisation into the four treatment groups will take place. Group A and B receive the btA injections. In group A the injections are followed by a rehabilitation therapy program specifically aimed at improving hand function and bimanual skills. In group B the injections are followed by therapy as usual (i.e. maximum once a week and not specifically aimed at hand function). Group C only receives the therapy program for three months. The children in group D continue with their usual therapy.
    60 children in total will be included.
    After the last measurement t6, i.e. 24 weeks after start of the treatment the study will end.
