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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    3. To assess the immunogenicity of DermaVir patch (LC002) in antiretroviral therapy naïve adults infected with HIV.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    10.1.1 Age: ≥18 and ≤50 years.
    10.1.2 Chronic HIV infection, for the purpose of the study defined as:
    confirmed time point of seroconversion for HIV antibodies at least 6
    months before study entry and no signs of symptomatic acute HIV
    infection in the 12 months before study entry.
    10.1.3 Plasma HIV RNA value ≥5,000 copies/mL and ≤ 150,000 c/mL.
    10.1.4 Patients must be antiretroviral therapy naïve
    10.1.5 Documented CD4+ T-cell count at screening ≥400 cells/mm3.
    10.1.6 Female study volunteers who are participating in sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy must agree to use two reliable methods of contraception, one of which must be a barrier method. A barrier method of contraception (condoms or cervical cap) together with another reliable form of contraception (condoms, with a spermicidal agent; a diaphragm or cervical cap with spermicide; an IUD; or hormonal-based contraception) must be used while receiving vaccine and for 6 weeks after stopping the vaccine. Condoms are recommended because their appropriate use is the only contraception method effective for preventing HIV-1 transmission. Sexually active female study volunteers without reproductive potential are eligible without requiring the use of contraception. Written documentation of missing reproductive potential needs to be confirmed by study investigator before vaccination.
    10.1.7 Male patients participating in the study must agree to not attempt to impregnate a female, or participate in sperm donation programs. Males engaging in sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy must use a condom from the date of receipt of the first study vaccine until six weeks after receipt of the last study vaccine. This needs to be documented in written form by study investigator and patient before vaccination.
    10.1.8 Patient must be able and willing to provide signed informed consent

    10.2.7 Treatment with any immune modulating agents (e.g. IL-2, IFN-γ, GM-CSF) or chemotherapy for malignancy within 12 months prior to screening.
    10.2.8 Receipt of any immunizations or vaccinations within 28 days of entry into this study.
    10.2.9 Systemic steroid therapy within the past 28 days.
    10.2.10 Breast-feeding.
    10.2.11 Pregnancy.
    10.2.12 Excessive exposure to the sun (sunbathing, tanning beds) or laser hair removal/tattoo removal etc. at or near the vaccine site within 2 weeks prior to study entry.
    10.2.13 Participation in any clinical trial of an experimental drug or device in the previous 30 days
    10.2.14 Patients with malignancy within 12 month prior to screening.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Occurrence of at least two > Grade 3 adverse event including signs/symptoms, lab toxicities, and/or clinical events that is possibly or definitely related to study treatment (as judged by the GIEU006 team, including site clinicians on the team, blinded to treatment arm) any time from the first day of study treatment until 42 days after the last study vaccine administration.
