Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43933   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    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
    To determine the sensitivity and specificity of the independent visual assessment of BAY 94-9172 PET images (from the 90 to 110 min imaging window) in detecting/excluding cerebral amyloid beta in patients with probable AD compared to HV. The clinical diagnosis - in Part A made by the investigator, in Part B established by an independent consensus panel - based on internationally accepted, validated criteria and established after comprehensive clinical and neuro-psychiatric examination, will serve as the standard of truth.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the usefulness of two additional imaging windows (i.e. 45 to 60 min and 110 to 130 min) for the visual assessment based on sensitivity and specificity values obtained in these two imaging windows.
    To determine the sensitivity, specificity of both volume of interest (VOI) and voxel-based quantitative image analysis in detecting/excluding cerebral beta-amyloid when compared to the diagnosis as established by an independent CP as the standard of truth.
    To confirm the safety profile of a single dose of BAY 94-9172 (ZK 6013443) in patients with probable AD and HVs.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy variables will be the sensitivity and specificity of the visual assessment of the BAY 94-9172 PET images in detecting/excluding cerebral beta-amyloid in patients with probable AD compared to HV. The 90 to 110 min imaging window and the majority read approach will be used to determine these variables.
    Sensitivity will be calculated from the data obtained from patients with probable AD, while specificity will be calculated from HVs. The independent CP diagnosis will be the standard of truth for Part B.
