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   41198   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    * Placebo-Controlled Induction Period:
    Compare the proportion of subjects who have a clinical response (as defined by a reduction in Crohn’s Disease Activity Index [CDAI] >= 100 or an absolute CDAI score < 150) at both Day IP-57 (Week 8) and Day IP-85 (Week 12) between the abatacept and placebo treatment regimens.

    * Maintenance Period:
    Compare the proportion of subjects who are in clinical remission
    (CDAI < 150) at Day MP-365 (12 months) between the abatacept and placebo treatment regimens.

    * Open-label Extension Phase:
    Assess the long-term clinical safety and tolerability of abatacept treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Induction Period (IP):
    -Compare proportion of subjects in clinical remission at both Day IP-57 & IP-85 between abatacept & 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 (MP):
    -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 the SF-36 & IBD Questionnaire

    Assess tolerability & safety of abatacept in subjects with CD

    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.

    The Open-label Extension (OL) phase will be offered to subjects who complete the 12- week Induction Period and do not meet responder criteria at Day IP-85, subjects who experience disease relapse during the Maintenance Period, and subjects who complete the Maintenance Period. 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.
