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   36835   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6081   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The main objective of this study was to investigate the effects of CAT-354 on airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) in uncontrolled (refractory) asthma.
    Protection of trial subjects
    The conduct of this clinical study met all local legal and regulatory requirements. The study was conducted in accordance with the ethical principles that have their origin in the Declaration of Helsinki and the International Conference on Harmonization guideline E6: Good Clinical Practice. Participating participant signed informed consent form and could withdraw from the study at any time without any disadvantage and without having to provide a reason for this decision.

    Primary: Change From Baseline in Doubling Concentration of Methacholine at Day 28

    End point title
    Change From Baseline in Doubling Concentration of Methacholine at Day 28 [1]
    End point description
    Change in doubling concentrations of methacholine was calculated as Log2 PC20 (Visit x) - Log2 PC20 (Baseline), where x was the post-baseline assessment (Day 28) and PC20 was provocative concentration of methacholine causing 20 percent fall in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1). FEV1 was the maximal volume of air exhaled in the first second of a forced expiration from a position of full inspiration. Change in doubling concentration was summarized as per planned analysis.

    Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) Total Score
    End point description
    The ACQ is questionnaire that comprises of 7-questions evaluating participant’s asthma control. Six self-administered questions assess asthma control over the past week covering nocturnal waking, morning symptoms, activity limitations, shortness of breath, wheezing, and short-acting bronchodilator use; using 7-point ordinal rating scale from 0 (good control) to 6 (poor control). Seventh question is completed by a health professional on forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) percentage (%) predicted; scale: 0 (greater than [>] 95% predicted) to 6 (less than [<] 50% predicted. Final score is the average score of the 7 questions, with a score range of 0 (well controlled) to 6 (extremely poor controlled). Result was summarized as per planned analysis.

    End point description
    The AQLQ: a 32-item questionnaire evaluating quality of life of participants with asthma including 4 domains (symptoms, activity limitations, emotional function, and environmental stimuli). Participants are asked to recall their experiences during the previous 2 weeks and to score each of the 32 questions on a 7-point scale ranging from 7 (no impairment) to 1 (severe impairment). The overall score is calculated as the mean response to all questions. The 4 domain scores are the means of the responses to the questions in each of the domains. Overall AQLQ score and 4 domain scores ranged from 7 (no impairment) to 1 (severe impairment).

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    07 Jun 2007
    - Determination of the atopic status of participants was to be required. Participants were considered atopic if they had documented hypersensitivity to a seasonal or perennial allergen as determined by skin test (prick or intradermal) or Radioallergosorbent Test (RAST) or equivalent test within 12 months prior to enrolment. - Coffee, tea, other caffeinated drinks, chocolate drinks, and chocolate foodstuffs were not to be consumed on challenge days before the test was completed. In addition, vigorous exercise was to be avoided on the day of the challenge before completion of the challenge test. - The means of determining the severity of exacerbations were clarified: mild-determined from diary data at each clinic visit and severe determined by taking an exacerbation update and history at each clinic visit.
    17 Aug 2007
    - Two additional exclusion criterion added: Significant, uncontrolled disease including serious psychological disorders, chronic renal failure, uncontrolled hypertension - systolic blood pressure greater than (>) 200 millimeter of mercury (mmHg), or diastolic blood pressure > 100 mmHg, heart disease, psoriasis requiring treatment and participants who have had a heart attack or stroke within the 3 months preceding Visit 1, or who have a known aneurysm. Known hypersensitivity to CAT-354 or its components, to the challenge agents used in the study or to related drugs. - Detail on study drug formulation was added. - Concomitant medications/treatments were adjusted to state that parenteral corticosteroids from one month prior to Visit 1 were not permissible, and corticosteroids (oral or injected) were allowed.
    13 Aug 2008
    - To remove all US specific reference as it was decided not to proceed with the study in the US due to feasibility and Key Opinion Leader feedback. - To document the changes resulting from reduced recruitment on the study design, interim analyses, and anticipated study objectives. - Changes were made to reduce the risk of hypersensitivity or infusion-related reactions and to remove investigations that were relatively invasive, and may have contributed to a number of adverse events. Specifically, planned changes in this regard were to: a. increase the infusion time of investigational medical product (IMP) from 30 to 60 minutes; b. to remove the mannitol challenge at all-time points; c. to remove the induced sputum collection at all-time points; d. to collect extra blood samples pre- and post-infusion of IMP in order to assess participant safety; e. to perform additional vital signs pre- and post-infusion of IMP in order to assess participant safety; f. to add that chlorphenamine and paracetamol could be administered 1.5 hours before infusion at Visits 5 and 7 for participants who experienced minor infusion reactions (without hemodynamic or respiratory compromise) after the infusion at Visit 2.

    Limitations and caveats

    Limitations of the trial such as small numbers of subjects analysed or technical problems leading to unreliable data.
    Study was prematurely terminated by the sponsor due to slow recruitment rate, delay due to temporary halt and potential for expiry date of study drug. It was not considered possible to draw meaningful conclusions from the small dataset.
    As of 1.2.2020, the UK is no longer an EU Member State. However, EU law still applies to the UK during the transition period
