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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.2Term Psoriasis vulgaris
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To investigate

    - whether the decrease in the adhesion of psoriatic neutrophils to Thy-1 is a first sign of a successful treatment before the clinical improvement can be observed, and

    - whether the failure of a significant decrease in the Thy-1-mediated adhesion during anti-psoriatic therapy is a predictor for patients who will not efficiently respond to the treatment
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To show efficacy of Raptiva in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

    To collect safety data for Raptiva in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    The local extension study
    “Extension-Studie an Blut- und Haut-Proben im Rahmen bzw. als Ergänzung zur Multizenter-Studie IMP27330.1 (Phase IV study to investigate neutrophil downregulation of Thy-1 by Raptiva® (Efalizumab) as a potential responder predictor in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis)“
    (Version 1.05 vom 19.03.2007)
    is planned at the University Clinic of Magdeburg.

    In this study, which will be conducted and analysed only at the trial site of Prof. Gollnick and Prof. Bonnekoh, additional blood samples and biopsies will be used to evaluate whether
    1) the Efalizumab-Therapy-Responder Prediction-Toponome (CD4, CD7, CD36, CD45,
    CD45R0, CD247, HLA-DQ and SNA Single-Epitop-Cluster) found in peripheral blood lymphocytes can be confirmed
    2) an Efalizumab-Therapy-Responder Prediction-Toponome can be characterised in skin samples
    3) intercurrent aggravation and exacerbation phenomena possibly occurring during Efalizumab therapy can be correlated to distinct toponome effects a) in peripheral blood and/or b) in skin tissue.

    For this extension study, a separate study protocol, patient information sheet and patient informed consent have been created which will be used at the University Clinic of Magdeburg only.
