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   35891   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5892   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. Atrial fibrillation is usually associated with age and general physical condition, rather than with a specific cardiac event. While not directly life-threatening, atrial arrhythmias can cause discomfort and can lead to stroke or congestive heart failure, and overall, increase morbidity.

    E.1.2Term Recurrent symptomatic atrial fibrillation
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of 3 doses of vernakalant (oral) (150 mg, 300 mg and 500 mg b.i.d.) administered for up to 90 days in subjects with sustained symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF duration > 72 hours and < 6 months)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    - Be 18 to 85 years of age;
    - Women must not be pregnant, be non-nursing and if pre-menopausal, must be using an effective form of birth control from time of screening until 3 months after the last dose of medication. Methods of birth control considered to be effective may include hormonal contraception (the pill), an intrauterine device (IUD), condoms in combination with a sprermicidal cream, total abstinence or sterilisation. Men should be advised not to conceive a child and are advised to use an effective form of birth control from admission until 3 months after the last dose of study medication;
    - Have symptomatic AF that has been sustained for greater than 72 hours and less than 6 months duration and is clinically indicated for cardioversion;
    - Have adequate anticoagulant therapy for cardioversion in accordance with standard of practice as recommended by ACC/AHA/ESC guidelines (Fuster V. et al, 2006);
    - Be haemodynamically stable (100 mmHg < systolic blood pressure < 190 mmHg) at screening and on Day 1 before dosing (while taking rate control drugs, if required). After resting supine for 3 minutes, blood pressures should be measured 3 times in 5 minutes with at least one minute between assessments;
    - Have a body weight between 45 and 113 kg (99 and 250 lbs).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Have known prolonged QT syndrome or QTcB interval of >0.500 sec as measured at screening on a 12-lead ECG; familial long QT syndrome; previous Torsades de Pointes; ventricular fibrillation; or sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT);
    - Have a QRS >0.140 sec;
    - Documented previous episodes of second or third-degree atrioventricular block;
    - Have clinically significant persistent bradycardia with ventricular rate below 50 beats/min, sick-sinus syndrome or pacemaker;
    - Have clinically significant moderate or severe aortic valvular stenosis (gradient >25 mmHg), hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy or constrictive pericarditis;
    - Have Class III or Class IV congestive heart failure at screening or admission, or have been hospitalized for heart failure in the previous 6 months;
    - Have a myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac surgery, angioplasty, unstable angina or acute coronary syndrome within 30 days prior to the entry into the study;
    - Have a serious pulmonary, hepatic, metabolic, renal (serum creatinine > 2.0 mg/dl), gastrointestinal, central nervous system (CNS) or psychiatric disease, end-stage disease states, or any other disease that could interfere with the conduct or validity of the study or compromise subject safety;
    - Have known concurrent temporary secondary causes of AF such as alcohol intoxication, pulmonary embolism, hyperthyroidism, pneumonia, hypoxemia (oxygen saturation < 90% on room air), acute pericarditis, or myocarditis;
    - Potassium (K+) <3.5 mmol/L or >5.5 mmol/L or magnesium (Mg2+) below the lower limit of normal (Mg2+ <0.65 mmol/L in subjects 65 years or younger and <0.80 mmol/L in subjects 66 years or older). (Both K+ and Mg2+ should be corrected prior to dosing);
    - Have a clinical evidence of digoxin toxicity;
    - Have received an oral Class I or Class III antiarrhythmic agent (including sotalol) within 3 days of randomisation or oral amiodarone within 4 weeks, or have received intravenous Class I or Class III antiarrhythmic agent or i.v. amiodarone within 24 hours prior to start of dosing;
    - Have any other surgical or medical condition that, in the judgement of the clinical Investigator might warrant exclusion or be contraindicated for safety reasons;
    - Be concurrently participating in another drug study or have received an investigational drug within 30 days prior to screening;
    - Be unable to communicate well with the investigator and to comply with the requirements of the entire study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Safety Assessments
    Safety Assessments will consist of monitoring and recording of all adverse events (AE) and serious adverse events (SAE), the regular measurement of vital signs and 12-lead ECGs. Safety laboratory assays and physical exams will also be performed.

    Efficacy Assessments
    All efficacy parameters based on ECG data will be evaluated based on ECGs from TTMs and 12-lead ECGs. AF symptoms (with patient diary and SCL) and Quality of Life will also be assessed.

    Pharmacokinetic Assessments
    Population PK approach will be used to evaluate the vernakalant (oral) PK profile in this study.
