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   43206   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7151   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Double-Blind: To compare the efficacy of 3 regimens of abatacept vs. placebo in a 6-month double-blind study of psoriatic arthritis, as measured by the proportion of subjects achieving an ACR20 response (American College of Rheumatology 20% response) at Day 169. Open-label: To assess the safety and tolerability of abatacept treatment during the open-label extension phase (18 months after the initial 6-month, double-blind period).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Double blind: 1. To estimate the difference in proportion of subjects achieving an Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) score of clear or almost clear in each of the 3 abatacept arms compared to placebo at Day 169. 2. To estimate the difference in mean percentage change from baseline in each of the 3 abatacept arms compared to placebo in target lesion scores at Day 169. 3. To estimate the difference in mean changes from baseline in physical and mental functions as measured by SF-36 in each of the 3 abatacept arms compared to placebo at Day 169 4. To estimate the difference in proportion of subjects with a diminution in disabilities as measured by HAQ scores between the 3 abatacept arms placebo at Day 169. 5. To describe the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity, and to predict the pharmacokinetics of each of the 3 abatacept arms using population pharmacokinetics (POPPK) methodology. Open-label: See section 2.3.2 of the protocol.
