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   36348   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5989   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Safety objectives: evaluate the safety of extended treatment with oral cladribine when administered according to a fixed annual dosing schedule to subjects who completed trial 25643 (CLARITY). To assess the safety of clardribine with emphasis on cardiac repolaritation as measured by changes in QT interval (in a subset of patients also partipating in the PK sampling and analysis)
    VEDERE INGLESE
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Explore the long-term benefit (rate of disease progression as reflected by rate of change in Expanded Disability Status Score [EDSS] score) of treatment with oral cladribine vs placebo. Explore the relationship between oral cladribine treatments and various immunologic parameters, MRI measures of disease activity, clinical relapses and disease progression in subjects previously randomised in Trial 25643. Determine the benefit of continued oral cladribine treatment on health-related quality of life and economic outcome measures. Explore the association between genetic variants, clinical efficacy, MRI endpoints and groups of subject with adverse events (grade 3 and 4 toxicity). Explore the effect of oral cladribine on gene expression profiles. Assess population pharmacokinetics (The analysis pertaining to this objective will be provided as an independent report)

Subjects who should be excluded from blinded medication could be proposed to be followed for safety according to the same visits. All of the following laboratory hematologic parameters must be normal (as defined below inclusively) within 28 days of first dosing of blinded study medication at SD1: - Hemoglobin = 11.6 16.2 G/DL - Leukocyctes (total white blood cells [WBC]) = 4.1 12.3 x 10E3/UL - Absolute lymphocytes = 1.02 3.36 x 10E3/UL - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) = 2.03 8.36 x10E3/UL - Platelet count = 140-450 x 10E3/UL . Female subjects must be neither pregnant nor breast-feeding and must lack child-bearing potential, as defined by either: - Be post-menopausal or surgically sterilized; or - Using a highly effective method of contraception throughout the entire duration of the study and for 6 months (6 menstural cycles) following completion of the last dose of study medication. A highly effective method of contraception is defined as those which result in a low failure rate (i.e. less that 1% per year) when used consistently and correctly such as implants, injectables, comined with oral contraceptives, IUSs, sexual abstinence or vasectomised partner. [Note: for Danish sites only, subjects should use a hormonal contraceptive or intrauterine device for the duration of the trial]Treatment of pregnant and nursing women with cladribine is prohibited. If male, he must be willing to use contraception to avoid pregnancies throughout the entire duration of the study and for 90 days following the last dose of study medication or following early termination or early withdrawal. Voluntarily provide written informed consent, and for USA sites only, a subject authorization under Health Insurance Portability and Accountab Act (HIPAA) Females of childbearing potential, who are either subjects in the trial or who are partners to male subjects in the trial, must use one of the above means of contraception for the entire trial period and for at least 12 weeks after the last dose of trial medication. For the purposes of this trial, women of childbearing potential is defined as:All female subjects after puberty unless they are postmenopausal for at least two years, are surgically sterile or are sexually inactive ....
