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   41231   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6758   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.

    Evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of sotrastaurin (AEB071) given as an oral drug at 300 mg for two weeks twice a day followed by 200 mg for two weeks twice a day in ulcerative colitis patients.

    Explore the relationship between sotrastaurin (AEB071) pharmacokinetics, clinical efficacy outcomes, pharmacodynamic markers and potential biomarkers.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Males and females 18-75 years of age with an established diagnosis of ulcerative colitis are eligible for the study.

    2. Female patients of child-bearing potential must be concurrently using two acceptable methods of contraception, (e.g. intra-uterine device plus condom, spermicidal gel plus condom, diaphragma plus condom, etc.) from the time of screening and for the duration of the study, through study completion and for 1 month following study completion.

    3. Patients must have active, moderate to severe disease with a Partial Mayo Score between 5 and 10 (inclusive), with a score of at least 2 on either stool frequency or rectal bleeding and a Modified Baron Score of at least 2 upon endoscopic examination with the disease extending at least 25 cm from the anal verge.

    4. Patients must have responded poorly to conventional therapy. Poor response is considered to be any of the following:

    the continuous requirement for intermittent, oral steroid therapy of more than 20 mg methylprednisolone or equivalent per day for more than 3 months (including steroid dependence defined as relapse within 3 months after stopping).

    the requirement for ≥ 2 g mesalamine per day.

    the failure to remain symptom-free on maintenance medication of azathioprine or 6-
    mercaptopurin (an adequate course is considered to be at least 12 weeks of treatment).

    Patients that do not tolerate mesalamine or steroid therapy will also be included. Doses of steroids and mesalamine, where topical therapy is not allowed, will be frozen at the time of screening and may be continued unchanged. The maximum allowed daily steroid dose is 20 mg methylprednisolone (or equivalent steroid dose). Other maintenance medications like azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurin will be continued unchanged throughout the study period.

    5. Patients must be able to communicate well with the investigator, to understand and comply with the requirements of the study and to understand and sign written informed consent.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Previous treatment with biologics (e.g. anti TNF-α) within the last 3 months or use of any other investigational drug within the previous 1 month.

    2. Hypersensitivity to AEB071 compound.

    3. Weight of less than 50 kg or more than 150 kg.

    4. Ongoing treatment with antibiotics, cyclosporine, methotrexate, tacrolimus or rectally administered corticosteroid or 5-aminosalicylate containing medication. Eligible patients must have stopped cyclosporine, methotrexate and tacrolimus at least 8 weeks and antibiotics and rectal topical therapy at least 2 weeks prior to study entry.

    5. Patients with active or history of clinically significant cardiac abnormalities, for example:

    Patients requiring drugs with QT-prolonging properties (e.g. antiarrhythmic drugs, such as amiodarone, sotalol, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, disopyramide).

    Patients with sustained heart rate <50 bpm or >90 bpm after resting in supine position for 5 minutes.

    Patients with hypokalemia, QTc >470msec, long QT-syndrome (own or with a family history) or with a family history of sudden unexplained death. •Patients with implanted cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator.

    Patients with left branch bundle block (LBBB), and patients with known history of congestive heart failure (NYHA class II to IV) or known left-ventricular dysfunction (LVEF < 45%).

    History of tachyarrhythmia e.g., supraventricular tachycardia, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular flutter, ventricular fibrillation.

    History of myocardial infarction within the previous 12 months; uncontrolled or unstable angina pectoris.

    History of syncope.

    6. Patients who are requiring the administration of strongly interacting drugs of the CYP450 3A4/5 system (See Appendix 6).

    7. Positive results for the detection of enteropathogens (including Salmonella, Yersinia, Shigella, Camplylobacter, EHEC and C. difficile).

    8. Laboratory findings showing:

    Aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase and bilirubin higher than 3 times the upper limit of normal,

    Alkaline phosphatase higher than 2 times the upper limit of normal,

    Absolute neutrophil count of <1,500/mm3, an absolute leukocyte count <2,500/mm3 or platelets <75,000/mm3.

    9. Patients who have been diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis are excluded from the study.

    10. History of renal trauma, glomerulonephritis or patients with one kidney. Presence of clinically significant proteinuria, active sediments, casts or WBCs in urine.

    11. Clinical signs and symptoms of toxic megacolon.

    12. Presence or history of major chronic inflammatory autoimmune diseases, e.g. SLE.

    13. History of alcohol or drug abuse.

    14. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are excluded.

    15. Donation or loss of 400 mL or more of blood within 8 weeks prior to dosing.

    16. Administration of live vaccines within 6 months prior to dosing.

    17. A positive HIV (ELISA and Western blot) test result, Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) or Hepatitis C test result.

    18. Significant illness within the two weeks prior to dosing or any active systemic infection or medical condition that may require treatment or therapeutic intervention during the study.

    19. History of malignancy (other than basal cell carcinoma or adequately treated carcinoma-in-situ of the cervix).

    20. Presence or history of underlying metabolic, endocrine, hematologic, pulmonary, cardiac, blood, renal, hepatic, infectious, psychiatric or gastrointestinal conditions which, in the opinion of the investigator, immunocompromise the patient and/or place the patient at unacceptable risk for participation in a study of an immunomodulatory therapy.

    21. Positive purified protein derivative (PPD) tuberculin skin test reaction (PPD 5 TU [tuberculin units] or as according to local standard practice) of ≥ 5 mm induration at baseline (Day -4 to Day -1), according to national guidelines. PPD tuberculin test results that were obtained within 2 months prior to screening can be used. Patients who have a positive PPD skin test with a documentation of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination or those who are at low environmental risk for tuberculosis (TB) infection and/or reactivation (in the opinion of the Investigator) and have a negative chest X-ray can be included.
