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   35236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5759   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Male or female subjects 12 to 75 years of age
    Signed and dated written informed consent. Signed and dated written assent, if applicable.
    Subjects must have inadequately controlled partial onset epilepsy with observable partial seizures that may be classified as simple complex or partial seizures evolving to secondary generalized seizures according to ILAE classification
    Subjects must be experiencing 2 to 40 seizures per 4-week period while being maintained on at least one, but no more than two standard AEDs, and auras are not being included in the seizure count.
    Subjects must be on a stable dose for at least four weeks before Screening (Visit 1) of at least one, but no more than two other concomintant antiepileptic drugs (AEDs)
    If taking two AEDs, one of the baseline AEDs should be taken at less than or equal to 50% of the minimum recommended dose
    EEG must be consistent with localization related epilepsy
    Previous CT scan or MRI confirming the subject is free of neoplasia, progressive cerebral disease or any other progressively neurodegenerative disease
    Female subjects without childbearing potential are eligible. Female subjects with childbearing potential are eligible if they use a medically accepted contraceptive method. The subjects must understand the consequences and potential risks of inadequately protected sexual activity, be educated about and understand the proper use of contraceptive method, and undertake to inform the Investigator of any potential change in status.
    Subjects must be capable of understanding and completing diaries and adhering to the protocol
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Females who are lactating or pregnant
    A history of status epilepticus in the 6 months preceeding randomization
    Seizures that are uncountable due to clustering during the 8-week period prior to Screening (Visit 1) and during the 8-week Baseline Period
    Significant medical, psychiatric or neurological illness
    Benzodiazepine use
    Suspected substance or alcohol abuse within 12 months preceding randomization
    Use of any medication (other than concomitant AEDs) that influences the central nervous system (CNS) unless on a stable regimen for at least 4 weeks prior to Screening
    History of previous treatment with levetiracetam or sensitivity to levetiracetam
    Use of an investigational drug or device in the 4 months preceding randomization
    Subjects may not enter the study if they are presently receiving phenobarbital, mysoline, or felbamate, or have an activated VNS device
    Neuroleptics and traditional herbal AEDs are not allowed
    History of recurrent psychotic or major affective disorder or suicide attempts
    History or presence of pseudoseizures
    Subjects on ketogenic diet
    Subjects with digestive problems that could impair the absorption of the Keppra XR formulation
    History of poor compliance with visit schedule or medication intake
    Subjects taking part in another clinical/pharmacological study in the 30 days prior to Screening (Visit 1)
    Subjects with any medical or surgical condition that might interfere with the subject's study participation, i.e. scheduled elective surgery, etc.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the cumulative exit rate at 112 days after the beginning of the previous AED tapering phase. Subjects will be required to exit the study if they experience any of the following protocol-defined exit events: 1) a twofold increase in partial seizure frequency in any 4-week treatment period compared to baseline; 2) a twofold increase in the highest 2-day consecutive seizure frequency that occured during the baseline phase; 3) occurance of a generalized seizure if none had occured in the 6 months prior to randomization; or 4) an episode of status epilepticus of a prolongation or worsening of seizure duration or frequency considered by the investigator to require intervention.
