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   41229   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6756   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.

    Induction Period: -Compare proportion of subjects in clinical remission at both Day IP-57 & IP-85 between the abatacept and placebo treatment regimens -Evaluate dose-response relationship by comparing proportions of subjects with a clinical response at both Day IP-57 & IP-85 induced by placebo & abatacept in increasing doses -Assess improvements in quality of life at Day IP-85 using the IBD Questionnaire in abatacept vs. placebo treated subjects. Maintenance Period: -compare proportion of subjects between abatacept & placebo treatment regimens: who have a clinical response at Day MP-365; in clinical remission at both Day MP-169 & MP-365 -Assess in abatacept vs. placebo treated subjects improvements in quality of life using SF-36 and IBD Questionnaire. IP+MP: -Assess tolerability & safety of abatacept in subjects with CD; -Assess immunogenicity of abatacept in subject with CD
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) Signed written informed consent 2) Subject must have had CD for at least 3 months from the time of initial diagnosis. Active CD must be confirmed by radiologic, endoscopic or histologic evidence within the previous 12 months. If previous confirmation of diagnosis is not available or if previous diagnosis is not deemed conclusive at time of screening, CD diagnosis should be confirmed by endoscopy, radiology or histology. 3) Subjects must satisfy at least one of the following criteria: a) Having had an inadequate response to at least 1 of the following treatments (subjects may be currently receiving 1 of these medications or have received them previously): i) oral aminosalicylates (e.g., mesalamine, sulfasalazine, olsalazine, balsalizide)at or above the approved label dose for at least 8 weeks and/or ii) oral prednisone >= 30 mg/day (or equivalent) or budesonide >= 9 mg/day for at least 4 weeks and/or iii) immunosuppressants (azathioprine >= 2 mg/kg/day or 6-mercaptopurine >= 1.0 mg/kg/day [or documentation of a therapeutic concentration of 6-thioguanine nucleotide] or methotrexate >=15 mg/week) for at least 12 weeks and/or iv) an approved anti-TNF agent at an approved labeled dose for at least 8 weeks AND/OR b) Have been intolerant to one of the above mentioned treatments (e.g.,unable to achieve doses or treatment durations because of dose limiting side effects [e.g.,leukopenia]). Subjects currently receiving and tolerating the above mentioned treatments (with the exception of anti-TNF agents) should continue their treatment (see Drug Stabilization Requirements on next page and Section Subjects who had an inadequate response and/or intolerance to anti-TNF treatment must have had their last dose at least 8 weeks prior to entry into the Induction Period. Acceptable documentation of inadequate response or intolerance in subjects include 1 or more of the following: medical records; letters provided by the referring physician; other referral documents (e.g., insurance authorization forms), provided they contain the relevant information to support the subject’s ‘inadequate response’ and/or ‘intolerance’ to the designated therapy. In all circumstances, it should be established that discontinuation of the designated treatments was primarily due to lack of efficacy or intolerance (e.g., not due to unavailability of the drug).Subjects in clinical remission should not discontinue CD therapy that is maintaining clinical remission, for the purpose of meeting eligibility requirements to enroll into this study. 4) Moderate to severe CD as measured by a CDAI score >= 220 and <=450 5) hsCRP > Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) 6) Oral corticosteroid treatment must have been reduced to the equivalent of <= 30 mg prednisone or <=9 mg budesonide daily at a stable dose for at least 2 weeks prior to entry into the Induction Period 7) Oral aminosalicylates should be at a stable dose for at least 2 weeks prior to entry into the Induction Period 8) Azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine and methotrexate should be at a stable dose for at least 8 weeks prior to entry into the Induction Period 9) Men and women, ages >=18

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The Induction Period’s primary efficacy assessment will test for differences in the proportion of subjects in the Induction Period abatacept 30/~10mg/kg treatment regimen versus placebo and abatacept ~10mg/kg treatment regimen versus placebo who are in clinical response on Days IP-71 and IP-85. The Induction Period’s two primary comparisons will be tested using the Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel (CMH) Chi-square test at the 5% level of significance with stratification according to the Induction Period stratification factors: 1)disease severity, and 2) concomitant use of immunosuppressants. The primary efficacy assessment of the Maintenance Period will test for treatment differences in the proportion of subjects who are in clinical remission at Day MP-365. The CMH Chi-square test will be used to compare the two treatment groups at the 5% level of significance, with stratification according to the Maintenance Period stratification factors: 1) disease activity following Induction therapy, and 2) concomitant use of immunosuppressants. Safety analysis: Significant physical examination findings, and clinical and laboratory test results will be listed. Summary statistics will be tabulated. Frequency distributions and individual listings of all adverse events will be generated. Changes from baseline in clinical laboratory test results will be listed. PK Analysis: Summary statistics will be tabulated for PK parameters by dose groups. Geometric means and coefficients of variation will be presented for Cmax, Cmin and AUC (TAU). Medians and ranges (minimum and maximum) will be presented for Tmax.

To allow for the continued collection of safety data in an open-label long-term extension phase, the Open-label Extension will continue until the drug is marketed for CD or the CD development program is discontinued.
