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   42567   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7008   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 Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that daily administration of mifepristone in subjects with Cushing's syndrome caused by ectopic ACTH secretion will improve the glucocorticoid-dependent parameters of blood pressure and/or glucose tolerance.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are to assess the impact of long-term administration of mifepristone on other glucocorticoid-dependent parameters, and the safety of the agent. The clinical and biochemical features and safety parameters which will be evaluated are detailed in protocol.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects will be included if they have ALL of the three following criteria:

    - Inferior petrosal sinus sampling (IPSS) with a central to peripheral ACTH ratio of less than 2.0 before CRH administration and less than 3.0 after CRH administration.
    - or biopsy with ACTH immunoreactivity.
    - or presence of a tumor evidenced by imaging combined with both a negative CRH test and a negative 8 mg dexamethasone suppression test.
    No major change in tumor status/anti-tumor therapy should be expected during the study

    2. Glucose intolerance AND/OR hypertension that is considered to be caused or worsened by the hypercortisolism:
    o Diabetes defined by

     or 2-hour glucose plasma level after 75 g OGTT ≥ 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl)
     or treated diabetes
    or glucose intolerance defined by:
     fasting plasma glucose values between 5.5 mmol/l (100 mg/dl) and 7.0 mmol/l (126 mg/dl) or 2-hour glucose plasma level after 75 g OGTT ≥ 7.8 mmol/l (140 mg/dl) ) and < 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl)
     Prior to study entry, fasting blood sugar must be less than 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) for at least two weeks
    o Hypertension defined by
     systolic BP ≥ 140 mm Hg and/or diastolic BP ≥ 90 mm Hg
     Prior to study entry, BP must be less than 180/110 mmHg for at least two weeks
     or treated hypertension

    3. At least one of the following symptoms attributable to the Cushing’s syndrome:
    o Body weight increase or truncal obesity
