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   42758   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine whether anti-CD20 therapy can stabilise or improve renal function and/or proteinuria in patients with C4d+, chronic (humoral) rejection in whom standard therapeutic approaches have failed.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To compare patient and graft survival between control and rituximab-treated groups
    To evaluate the adverse effect profile of rituximab in this group
    To correlate changes in circulating B cell numbers, anti-HLA and non-HLA Ab profiles and titre with responses to standard therapy and / or rituximab
    To correlate changes in T cell responsiveness to alloantigens with responses to standard therapy and / or rituximab
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    To be included in the study the patient must have:
    •A functioning kidney allograft (with estimated GFR by MDRD >20) and be >6/12 post-transplantation
    •Either deteriorating allograft function as defined by linear regression of reciprocal creatinine plot. Deterioration will be defined as a negative slope over at least the preceding 3 months (with at least 6 creatinines included) with an adjusted r2 >0.35 and a p value of ≤0.05 compared to horizontal baseline. Deterioration will be confirmed by Cockcroft Gault eGFR somparisons over same period to rule out body mass as a cause of change in creatinines
    OR Significant proteinuria defined as a urine protein : creatinine ratio ≥50
    OR Both deteriorating function and proteinuria
    •CAN, by Banff ’97 criteria, or transplant glomerulopathy on renal allograft biopsy performed within 3/12 of enrolment
    •Diffuse, linear C4d deposition on at least 25% of peritubular capillary (PTC) and/or glomerular EC of renal transplant biopsy when assessed by immunoperoxidase OR >50% of PTC (alone) when assessed by immunofluorescence.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    The presence of any of the following will preclude patient inclusion

    •<18 years of age
    •suspicion of pregnancy confirmed by positive HCG pregnancy test
    •untreated ureteric obstruction on ultrasound of allograft
    •history of acute allograft rejection in preceding 3/12
    •history of MI in preceding 3/12
    •history of malignancy in previous 5 years (excluding tumours limited to skin)
    •symptomatic IHD
    •recipient of simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant
    •recipient of ABO-incompatible kidney
    •recipient who underwent an HLA desensitisation procedure prior to transplantation
    •evidence, on examination of renal allograft biopsy specimen, of recurrent or de-novo disease (except IgA deposition in absence of mesangial proliferation)
    • evidence, on examination of renal allograft biopsy specimen, of CNI toxicity IF ACCOMPANIED by mostly supra-therapeutic CNI trough levels in the 6 month period preceding biopsy.
    • doumented allergy to mouse or chimeric human/mouse proteins
    • HepBsAg+, HCV Ab+ or HIV+ or HepBcAb+
    • administration of lymphocyte depleting antibody within 3 months of enrolment
    E.5 End points

    •Rate of deterioration in renal function, defined by slope of reciprocal creatinine plot, on samples taken in the preceding 3 months.
    •Change in degree of proteinuria, where present
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Determined 3-5 months post-randomisation
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    To compare patient and graft survival between control and rituximab-treated groups
    To evaluate the adverse effect profile of rituximab in this group
