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   42883   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacodynamic response of three different ARX201 doses when administered repeatedly to young adult patients with childhood onset GHD
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To establish the single and multidose pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of ARX201 administered to young adult patients with childhood onset GHD.
    - To select, based on the safety, pharmacokinetic, and pharmacodynamic findings, the dosage regimens of ARX201 that will be evaluated in subsequent multiple dose studies in patients with GHD.
    - To evaluate the efficacy of ARX201 following six months of treatment in young patients with GHD.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Young adults, male or female, age 18 to 30 years, with growth
    hormone deficiency of childhood onset whom have completed growth
    (and in the investigators opinion have achieved their final height);
    2. hGH level below the predetermined cut-off value in one of the dynamic
    endocrine testing (If there are more than two tests performed all should
    have peak hGH levels below predetermined cut-off values):
    a. If Insulin Tolerance Test, the peak hGH value must be below 3
    b. If Arginine-GHRH Test, the peak hGH value must be below 5
    ng/ml. This test is however not acceptable in patients with
    GHD of hypothalamic origin (e.g. patients having received
    irradiation of the hypothalamic-pituitary region);
    c. If Arginine Test alone, the GH peak must be below 1.4 ng/ml.
    This test is acceptable only in patients in which Insulin
    Tolerance Test is contraindicated and are suffering from GHD
    of hypothalamic origin;
    d. Patients without results of any dynamic endocrine testing
    having at least 3 other pituitary hormone deficiencies;
    3. Screening IGF-I level of ≤ - 2 SDS standardised for age and sex
    according to the central laboratory reference values;
    4. rhGH treatment naïve or stopped this treatment for at least 6 months
    prior to study entry ;
    5. Receiving replacement therapies for any other hypothalamic-pituitary
    axes deficiencies for at least 3 months prior to study entry; (For
    patients receiving estrogen, ONLY transdermal application is
    acceptable. Temporary adjustment of glucocorticoid replacement
    therapy, as appropriate, is acceptable)
    6. Confirmed to be negative for anti-hGH antibodies;
    7. Females must not intend to conceive during or shortly after the study.
    They must be either post-menopausal, surgically incapable of bearing
    children, or practicing an acceptable method of birth control (e.g.,
    intrauterine device or spermicide and barrier but NOT hormonal
    contraceptives) and be willing to continue the same method of birth
    control during and for 30 days after the last dose of study medication.
    Oral contraceptives must be discontinued at least 14 days prior to
    receipt of the first dose of study drug and are not permitted during the
    study. Females of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum
    pregnancy test at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test before
    the first dose of study drug;
    8. Have negative drugs of abuse screen at Screening and on Day -1 of
    check in ;
    9. Willing and able to give informed consent; and
    10. Willing and able to undergo procedures required by this protocol.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Evidence of growth of pituitary adenoma or other intracranial tumor
    within the last 12 months which has to be confirmed by computer
    tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan (with
    contrast) within 3 months prior to study entry. Patients with primary
    growth hormone deficiency are exempt from this requirement
    2. History of malignancy other than I) cranial tumor or leukemia causing
    GHD or II) fully treated basal cell carcinoma;

    transaminase [ALT] or aspartate transaminase [AST] >1.5 x upper limit
    of normal);
    7. Significant renal impairment as indicated by serum creatinine levels
    above the normalized range for age;
    8. Any other major medical conditions, including e.g., clinically manifest
    diabetes mellitus, hypertension, tuberculosis, major surgery within the
    last three months, or significantly abnormal laboratory tests (e.g.,
    disturbed calcium homeostasis); or any other conditions (e.g., acute
    infections) that may influence drug absorption, metabolism or excretion
    or that may interfere with any study variables in the judgment of the
    9. Inadequate T4 or adrenocorticoid replacement;
