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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Subject’s legally authorized guardian(s) must provide signed, informed consent prior to performing any study-related activities (Trial-related activities are any procedures that would not have been performed during normal management of the subject).
    2. The patient must have a confirmed diagnosis of MLD as defined by:
    -ASA activity < 10 nmol/h/mg in leukocytes
    -Presence of elevated sulfatide in urine
    3. The patient must have a confirmed nerve conduction velocity < 2 standard deviations (from the appropriate age level)
    4. The patient must have a residual level of voluntary function (as judged by the investigator), including presence of residual cognitive function (attention, executive and visual functions) as well as the presence of residual voluntary motor function in one upper or lower limb as a minimum.
    5. The patient must have an age at the time of screening ≥ 1 year and < 6 years
    6. The patient must have had onset of symptoms before the age of 4 years
    7. The subject and his/her guardian(s) must have the ability to comply with the clinical protocol
    8. The patients’ medical record must document that the legal guardian(s) has had independent counselling or a consultation regarding stem cell transplantation in order to assure that the guardian(s) is fully informed regarding the risks and benefits of this alternative
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Presence of a gross motor function measure (GMFM < 10)
    2. Presence of severe pseudo-bulbar signs (weakness and disco-ordination of tongue and swallowing muscles leading to severe difficulty with swallowing)
    3. Spasticity so severe to inhibit transportation
    4. Known multiple sulfatase deficiency
    5. Presence of major congenital abnormality
    6. Presence of known chromosomal abnormality and syndromes affecting psychomotor development

    8. Presence of known clinically significant cardiovascular, hepatic, pulmonary or renal disease or other medical condition
    9. Any other medical condition or serious intercurrent illness, or extenuating circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would preclude participation in the trial
    10. Use of any investigational product within 30 days prior to study enrolment or currently enrolled in another study which involves clinical investigations.
    11. Received ERT with rhASA from any source
    12. Planned or anticipated initiation of antispastic treatment after trial initiation
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    From the safety evaluation a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined by a DMC (on the basis of evaluation after each dose group) and this is the primary safety endpoint.

    All adverse events will be summarized overall by use of system organ class and preferred terms in MEDDRA code summarized by dose level. Adverse events will be accounted for in relation to the dose level used at the time for onset of the event. Serious adverse events will be summarized separately in similar form.
    All adverse events will in addition be summarized according to dose level, severity and according to relationship to study drug as assessed by investigator.

    Changes from normal to abnormal will be presented in shift tables for all laboratory variables for whom reference ranges are available. Urine-analysis, ECG and physical examination will be presented descriptively by dose level, only.

    The following PK endpoints are derived and will be analyzed:
    rhASA in blood and ASA activity in leukocytes will be presented graphically.
    AUC, Cmax, Tmax, T½ (if applicable) will be derived by trapzodial method and presented descriptively by dose level.

    Functional capacity
    GMFM is the primary efficacy endpoint. Item scores can be summed to calculate raw and percent score for each of the five GMFM dimensions.

    Biochemical markers
    Urinary sulfatide, CSF sulfatide, chitotriosidase, NFp, GFAp, tau protein are all measured on a continuous scale.

    Nerve conduction velocity
    NCV, AMP and DL are all measured on a continuous scale.
