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   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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 ).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study was to demonstrate the long-term retention rate of carisbamate (CRS) versus topiramate (TPM) and levetiracetam (LEV) when given adjunctively to subjects with partial onset seizures based on discontinuations due to all causes over a 6-month period.
    Protection of trial subjects
    An independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) met during the course of the study to ensure the safety of the subjects and monitor any clinically relevant trends. Safety and tolerability evaluations included monitoring of the frequency, severity, and timing of adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory test values, liver function tests, serum lipid profiles, urine drug screen, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings, vital signs measurements, physical and neurologic examinations, study drug levels and concomitant adjunctive antiepileptic drug (AED) levels, and pregnancy tests for females of childbearing potential.

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    A total of 600 subjects were to be enrolled (200 subjects in each group) initially. At study termination, 89 subjects had been randomly assigned to treatment (29, 29, and 31 subjects in the CRS versus TPM and LEV groups, respectively).

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    Across all treatment groups, of the 89 subjects who were randomly assigned to treatment and received at least 1 dose of study drug, 60 subjects completed the 6-month core double-blind phase (17 CRS, 19 TPM, and 24 LEV) and 5 subjects (2 CRS, 2 TPM, and 1 LEV) completed the 12-month double-blind phase; Only 9 subjects had begun the open-label phase.

    Limitations and caveats

    Limitations of the trial such as small numbers of subjects analysed or technical problems leading to unreliable data.
    With limitations of low enrollment of subjects per treatment arm and early termination of the study by the sponsor, primary efficacy analysis was not performed and the focus of this report was safety. Safety data should be interpreted cautiously.
