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   34905   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5686   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
    Pulmonary hypertension in patients with interstitial lung disease. Specifically this trial looks at patients who have mild pulmonary hypertension, or are in an at-risk group to developing pulmonary hypertension, in the context of their interstitial lung disease. The interstitial lung diseases addressed include idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and non-specific interstitial pneumonitis.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To efficacy of bosentan in preventing the development of established pulmonary hypertension in patients with fibrosing lung disease considered at-risk of developing pulmonary hypertension.

    The primary endpoint is the change in resting pulmonary vascular resistance from baseline to week 52.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the ability of bosentan to effect exercise capacity, and pulmonary blood flow, lung function and quality of life in patients with fibrosing lung disease at risk of developing pulmonary arterial hypertension.

    The secondary endpoints are changes from baseline to week 52 in the followin parameters:
    1. Exercise capacity as measured by the 6-minute walk test, and Borg dyspnoea scale
    2. Pulmonary blood flow
    3. Lung function (DLco% predicted, FVC % predicted, composite physiological index)
    4. Right heart catheter data (mean pulmonary arterial pressure, systolic pulmonary arterial pressure, mean right atrial pressure, systemic vascular resistance and cardiac index)
    5. Quality of life as measured by teh CAMPHOR questionnaire
    6. WHO functional class
    7. Time to decline (Death, transplanation, hospitalisation , supplemental oxygen, disease progression).
    8. Right ventricular mass (on cardiac MRI)
    9. Brain natriuretic peptide
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Patients >=18yrs, <80yrs

    o Pre-PH: RHC: mean PAP <25mmHg, PCWP<15mmHg, 6-minute walk test oxygen desaturation <89%

    4. Patients providing written informed consent.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Patients <18, >80yrs.

    2. Patients with unstable disease, or an acute exacerbation of their underlying fibrotic lung disease.

    3. Patients with significant other organ co-morbidity including hepatic or renal impairment.

    4. Patients with systolic BP < 85mmHg

    5. Patients with other conditions that may affect the ability to perform a 6-minute walk test.

    6. Patients unable to provide informed consent and comply with the patient protocol.

    7. Patients receiving excluded medications (including: epoprostenol, or prostacyclin analogues, phosphodiesterase inhibitors, other endothelin receptor antagonists, drugs with potential interaction with bosentan such as glibenclamide, fluconazole, cyclosporin A, or tacrolimus, and other invesgational agents).

    8. Patients with planned surgical intervention during the study period.

    9. Pregnant patients

    10. Patients with resting oxygen saturation <90%

    11. Patients with clinically overt ischaemic heart disease
