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   42869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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.

    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Pulmonary Hypertension secondary to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and secondary to Sarcoid

    Patients devolop pulmonary hypertension for various reasons, two common causes are Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease and Sarcoid. Once developed it may go on to cause right heart failure and severe breathlessness and eventually death.
    We believe that the use of bosentan may lower the pulmonary hypertension and improve symptoms.

    E.1.2Classification code 10037400
    E.1.2Term Pulmonary hypertension
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Patients devolop pulmonary hypertension for various reasons, two common causes are Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease and Sarcoid. Once developed it may go on to cause right heart failure and severe breathlessness and eventually death.

    We believe that the use of bosentan may lower the pulmonary hypertension and improve symptoms. We therefore wish to trial the use of bosenten in patients with secondary pulmonary hypertension and see if after a period of treatment their pulmonary pressure falls, if their lung function improves, if their exercise tolerance improves and if quality of life improve.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To ensure that Bosentan is a safe and well tolerated treatment in patients with secondary pulmonary hypertension. This would be answered by monitoring patients very carefully whilst on the treatment and reporting any side effects.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Any Patient with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or Sarcoid with Pulmonary Hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension is defined as a mean pulmonary artery pressure in excess of 20mmHg at rest. Pulmonary hypertension is defined as an elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure of 20 mmHg or greater at rest or 30 mmHg with exercise.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Bosentan is contraindicated in patients with moderate to severe liver dysfunction and therefore this is an exclusion criteria.

    There is limited experience with Bosentan in patients with a body weight below 40 kg, although this is not an absolute exclusion criteria this would require more frquent monintoring and is a relative contraindication for inclusion in the trial.

    Excessive age is a relative contraindication given the number of clinic visits(>85 years old).

    Children Safety and efficacy in patients under the age of 12 years have not been established so this is an exclusion criteria. (Age <12)

    Pregnancy is absolute ecxlusion to the trial - therefore females entering the trial of child bearing age would need two forms of contraception and a pregnancy test prior to entry.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary end points in the trial would to be to review patients before treatment and after 1 year of treatment. The end points studied would be;
    1 Survival
    2 Pulmonary pressures monitored by Right Heart Catheter.
    3 Exercise tolerance - measured by the six minute walk test.
    4 Lung function tests
    5 Quality of Life assessment
    6 Echo appearence of right ventricle and pulmonary pressures

    E.8.8 Definition of the end of the trial and justification where it is not the last visit of the last subject undergoing the trial
    The end of the trial for each patient is after 1 year of therapy with Bosentan and after their yearly assessment i.e. their right heart catheter, echo, 6 minute walk test, quality of life assessment and lung function tests.

    the patient would then enter our rountine follow-up of patients with pulmonary hypertension at St Georges Hospital.
