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   40977   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6698   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.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    In the present study, the corticosteroid-sparing effect of certolizumab pegol will be assessed in patients with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease who have received initial acute corticosteroid therapy (prednisone or prednisolone) for induction of remission.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to compare certolizumab pegol and placebo treatments for the proportion of patients who have been successfully withdrawn from corticosteroids (prednisone or prednisolone) according to the tapering schedule of the protocol and have remained off corticosteroids and in disease remission as defined by a Crohn's Disease Activity Index (CDAI) of <=150 at Week 38 of treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    ·Proportion of patients with remission (CDAI <=150) off steroids at each study visit·Proportion of patients with continuous remission (CDAI <=150) off steroids at each study visit · Cumulative proportion of patients with relapse/treatment failure at each study visit after Week 0, with relapse/treatment failure defined as a CDAI >150 and an increase in CDAI of >=70 points vs. Week 0 ·Time to relapse/treatment failure· Per-patient median weekly dose and cumulative dose of corticosteroids over the duration of the study, and change from baseline in the median weekly dose· CDAI scores at each study visit and changes from Week 0· Change from baseline in the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) as assessed by the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ) total score at Week 38·Safety
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patient is able to understand the information provided to them and who have given written informed consent to the study. Patient is able to understand and complete self-administered questionnaires. Men and women, age 18 years or older
    A diagnosis of moderate to severe Crohn's disease (CDAI score of >= 220 - < =450) during the run-in period. The patient is a candidate for treatment with prednisone or prednisolone therapy, but is not on maintenance corticosteroid therapy
    If the patient is on an immunosuppressant (azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine and methotrexate are allowed immunosuppressants), the dose has to have been stable for at least 8 weeks prior to screening and is expected to remain stable during the study. If the patient is on a 5-ASA analogue for Crohn’s disease, the dose has to have been stable for at least 4 weeks prior to screening and is expected to remain stable during the study. If female, the patient is either postmenopausal for at least one year, surgically incapable of childbearing, or effectively practicing an acceptable method of contraception (oral or parenteral hormonal contraceptive; intrauterine device; barrier and spermicide—abstinence is not an acceptable method). Patients must agree to use adequate contraception during the study and for 12 weeks after the last dose of certolizumab.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients who were primary non-responders to previous treatment with an anti-TNF drug are excluded. Patients with previous certolizumab pegol exposure are excluded.
    If a patient received ≤ 3 injections of anti-TNF therapy (other than certolizumab pegol) and responded to treatment, but discontinued that treatment for reasons other than loss of response or hypersensitivity reaction, the patient may be included in the study.
    Any patient receiving ≤ 3 injections of anti-TNF (other than certolizumab pegol) in the past 6 months must be reviewed by the UCB Study Physician prior to being included in the study.

    Active or draining fistula present at screening. On maintenance corticosteroid therapy. Symptomatic obstructive intestinal strictures. Functional colostomy or ileostomy (patients who have a temporary stoma in the past, which has been reversed, are eligible to enter the study). Bowel resection within 3 months of starting the study medication. Current total parenteral nutrition.Short bowel syndrome. Positive stool laboratory results for pathogens.Antibiotic treatment for Crohn’s Disease within 2 weeks prior to screening.

    Patients with a history of tuberculosis, or positive chest X-ray for tuberculosis, or positive PPD skin test result (defined as an induration of ≥5 mm) can not be enrolled in the study. Patients with a history of BCG vaccination having a positive PPD skin test, but no clinical or radiographic evidence of TB (confirmed by a radiologist) may be enrolled. Patient for which latent TB can not be ruled out are ONLY eligible for study entry if they are prophilactically treat with isoniazid initiated at least 1 month prior to re-screening and agree to maintain isoniazid therapy for six months.

    Patients with a previous history of blood dyscrasias are excluded from study participation.


    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy variable will be the proportion of patients who have been withdrawn from prednisone or prednisolone therapy according to the corticosteroid-tapering schedule and have remained off corticosteroids and in disease remission (CDAI <= 150) at Week 38.
