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   41228   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6756   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) .

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    1) To assess the prevalence of anti-efalizumab positivity in two sub-populations of psoriatic subjects treated with Raptiva® in the framework of the CLEAREST study:

    - Subjects developing adverse events (AEs) corresponding to pre-specified newly diagnosed autoimmune disorders including (but not limited to) systemic lupus erythematosus, Wegener’s granulomatosis, antiphospholipid syndrome, Sjögren syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Type I diabetes, auto-immune uveoretinitis, auto-immune gut disorders such as Crohn disease or ulcerative colitis, auto-immune vasculitis, auto-immune hepatitis, auto-immune thyroiditis and other endocrine disorders, auto-immune haemolytic anaemia, pernicious anaemia, myasthenia gravis, Goodpasture’s syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome.

    - Subjects developing severe thrombocytopenia (grade III or IV according to
    National Cancer Institute – Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events – i.e. platelet count <50,000/mm3)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To investigate thrombocytopenia mechanism of action in subjects who develop severe thrombocytopenia (defined as platelet count <50,000/mm3) in the context of previous Raptiva® treatment in the framework of the CLEAREST study. For this secondary objective, a control group of psoriasis subjects without severe thrombocytopenia will be included.
    - To identify genetic profiles associated with drug-induced thrombocytopenia and autoimmune diseases.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion criteria:
    1) Subject participating to Study 25878 currently treated or having been treated with
    efalizumab, with the last dose received within 6 weeks before inclusion in this trial.
    2) Subject developing during the study 25878 either
    - A newly diagnosed autoimmune disease (suspected or confirmed) such as
    systemic lupus erythematosus, Wegener’s granulomatosis, antiphospholipid
    syndrome, Sjögren syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes
    type I, autoimmune uveoretinitis, autoimmune gut disorders such as Crohn
    disease or ulcerative colitis, autoimmune vasculitis, autoimmune hepatitis,
    autoimmune thyroiditis and other endocrine disorders, autoimmune haemolytic
    anaemia, pernicious anaemia, myasthenia gravis, Goodpasture’s syndrome,
    and Guillain-Barré syndrome, or
    - A severe thrombocytopenia defined as grade III or IV according to NCICTCAE
    criteria – i.e. platelet count < 50,000 mm3 - during routine monitoring
    or for -cause laboratory evaluation
    3) Subject is willing and able to participate in the trial and has provided signed, informed consent.
    ===
    In addition, for sites participating to the control group, control subjects will be included and must fulfil all the following criteria:
    1) Subject participating to Study 25878
    2) Absence of clinical signs of severe thrombocytopenia
    3) Either currently treated with efalizumab or not (i.e. last dose of efalizumab received more than 6 weeks before study entry)
    4) Subject is willing and able to participate in the trial and has provided signed, informed consent.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1) Participation to any interventional clinical study (inclusion in other registry/ observational study is possible)
    2) Administration of specific treatment for the current thrombocytopenia before inclusion in the study (e.g. glucocorticosteroids, plasmapheresis, platelet transfusion)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Proportion of subjects with binding anti-efalizumab antibodies among subjects with
    newly diagnosed autoimmune disorders and proportion of subjects with binding antiefalizumab antibodies among subjects who develop severe thrombocytopenia.
