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   37733   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6184   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary objectives:
    Evaluation of efficacy of the treatment with intravitreal administered injections of Bevacizumab (Avastin®) compared with Triamcinolone (Volon A®) in patients with clinical significant diabetic macular edema. The main focus of the assessments of efficacy is:
    1. The percent change in macular edema measured with standard optical coherence tomography (OCT).
    2. The absolute change in visual acuity analyzed by standardized charts according to the protocol used in the Early Retreatment in Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To explore the structural mechanisms of the effect of bevacizumab (Avastin®) compared to triamcinolone (Volon A®) on diabetic macular edema as assessed by fluorescein angiography and ultra high-resolution optical coherence tomography. To observe detailed changes in retinal function, a microperimetry and a multifocal electroretinogram (mERG) will be assessed.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion criteria
    • Signed informed consent
    • Age 18 years
    • Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus
    • Patients with diabetic macular edema with center involvement
    • Central macular thickness (macular edema) of at least 300 microns in the central subfield as measured by OCT
    • Best corrected visual acuity, using ETDRS charts, of 20/25 to 20/400 (Snellen equivalent) in the study eye
    • Patients with decrease in vision in the study eye due to foveal thickening from diabetic macular edema and not to other causes, in the opinion of the investigator
    • Patients without a necessity for panretinal laser photocoagulation for at least 3 months after study inclusion
    • If both eyes are eligible, the one with the worse visual acuity will be selected for study treatment unless, based on medical reason, the investigator deems the other eye have got more benefit from study treatment. The other eye will be treated with Grid laser coagulation.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • A condition that would preclude a patient for participation in the study in opinion of investigator, e.g., unstable medical status including glycemic control and blood pressure
    • History of systemic corticosteroids within 3 months prior to randomization or topical, rectal or inhaled corticosteroids in current use more than 3 times per week

    Prior/Concomitant Treatment
    • Macular laser photocoagulation
    • Panretinal laser photocoagulation within the past 3 months
    • Previous treatment with intravitreal or sub-Tenon triamcinolone within the past 3 months in the study eye
    • Previous participation in clinical trial involving anti-angiogenic drugs (pegabtanib sodium, ranibizumab, anecortave acetate, protein kinase C inhibitor, etc.)
    • History of submacular surgery or other surgical intervention for diabetic macular edema in the study eye
    • Previous participation in any studies of investigational drugs within 1 month preceding Day 0 (excluding vitamins and minerals)

    • High risk proliferative diabetic retinopathy in the study eye without complete panretinal lasercoagulation and having a risk for intravitreal bleeding
    Concurrent Ocular Conditions
    • Active intraocular inflammation (grade trace or above) in either eye
    • Vitreomacular traction in the study eye evident by OCT
    • Current vitreous hemorrhage in the study eye
    • Infectious conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, endophthalmitis as well as idiopathic or autoimmuneassociated uveitis in either eye
    • Structural damage to the center of macula in the study eye likely to preclude improvement in visual acuity following the resolution of macular edema, including atrophy of retinal pigment epithelium, subretinal fibrosis, laser scar within foveal avascular zone (FAZ) or organized hard exudate plaques
    • Ocular disorders in the study eye including retinal vascular occlusion, retinal detachment, macular hole, choroidal neovascularisation
    • Intraocular surgery (including cataract surgery, YAG laser capsulotomy) in the study eye within 3 months preceding Day 0
    • Uncontrolled glaucoma in the study eye (defined as intraocular pressure 25 mmHg despite treatment with anti-glaucoma medication)
    • History of glaucoma filtration surgery, corneal transplantation in the study eye
    Concurrent Systemic Conditions
    • Systemic hypertension (> 150/100 mmHg)
    • History of myocardial infarction (in anamnesis or signs in ECG)
    • History of congestive heart failure
    • History of stroke or transient ischemic attacks
    • Significant abnormalities on laboratory testing (signs on failure of kidney, liver disease)
    • Premenopausal women not using adequate contraception and pregnant or nursing women
    The following are considered effective means of contraception: surgical sterilization; use of oral contraceptives; barrier contraception with either a condom or diaphragm in conjunction with spermicidal gel; an IUD; or contraceptive hormone implant or patch.
    • History of other disease, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use an investigational drug or that might affect interpretation of the results of the study or render the subject at high risk for treatment complications
    • Current treatment for active systemic infection
    Other
    • History of allergy to fluorescein, not amenable to treatment
    • Inability to obtain fundus photographs or fluorescein angiograms of sufficient quality to be analyzed and graded
    • Inability to comply with study or follow up procedures
