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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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
    Patients with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and Methotrexate related side effects
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The goal of the current protocol is to describe the follow-up of JIA patients during MTX therapy using validated response criteria for JIA disease activity (PRINTO core set criteria) and validated psychological response criteria for psychological behavioural therapy. In addition, we aim to explore the incidence, mechanisms and treatment options of MTX intolerance.

    To assess effectiveness of the 3 treatment options of management of MTX related side effects in children with JIA
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion criteria:
    1. diagnosis: all subtypes JIA according to ILAR classification (15).
    2. MTX oral (dosing 10-20mg/m2/week)
    3. other medication: NSAID, biologicals (etanercept, infliximab, anakinra) allowed
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. MTX parenteral
    2. Other diagnosis
    3. Steroid usage (more than 0.2mg/kg/day)
    4. Other MTX related side effects:
    4a. Abnormal Liver function tests (definitie (1) waarsch verdubbeling uitgangswaarde
    4b. Abnormal renal function tests (serum creatinin increasing to twice baseline values)
    4c. Cytopenias (see above(1))
    5. History of non-compliance to earlier treatments not related to MTX
    6. Patients currently included in other studies
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    • The incidence of MTX intolerance. Side effects are defined as
    o Gastroenterological side effects leading to intolerance: nausea, nausea occurring prior to dosing (anticipatory nausea), abdominal dysconfort before/after MTX or oral ulcers. For these self reported MTX side effects, a patient log (“diary”) will be used weekly to report observed effects.
    • Primary clinical outcome measures of JIA after 3 and 6 months of treatment. These variables are(13;14):
    o Functional ability assessment by CHAQ (laatse versie)
    o Number of active joints (pain/swelling)
    o Limitation of movement (defined by EPM-ROM scale)
    o Physician’s global assessment of disease activity on a 10cm VAS
    o Parent/patient global assessment of disease activity on a 10cm VAS
    o Parent/patient global assessment of pain on a 10 cm VAS
    o ESR and CRP
    • Number of MTX treatment failures, switching to TNF blockade
    • The incidence of other MTX related side effects
