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   36087   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5931   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
    The Novartis Meningococcal B Recombinant +/- OMV Vaccine is intended for prevention of meningitidis and/or septicemia cause by Neisseria menigitidis serogroup B. The objective of the Novartis Meningococcal B Recombinant +/-OMV Vaccine is to identify vaccine candidates that are safe and that provide functional immune responses against heterologus meningococcal B strains.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To explore the immunogenicity of Novartis rMenB Vaccine +/- OMV when administered to healthy infants, at 30 days after the second and the third dose, by evaluation of the breadth of bactericidal activity (BCA) response against a panel of genetically distinct meningococcal strains.

    To explore the safety and tolerability of Novartis rMenB with or without OMV throughout the clinical study.

    14. who have received antibiotics within 6 days prior to enrollment;
    15. who have either received, or for whom there is intent to immunize with any other vaccine(s), with respect to the study vaccines, within 30 days prior and throughout the study period [Exception: the applicable routine immunization (e.g. MMR, MCC-Hib, PC7) are allowed];
    16. have received another investigational agent within 90 days or before completion of the safety follow-up period in another study, whichever is longer, prior to enrollment and unwilling to refuse participation in another investigational trial through the end of the study;
