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   37504   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6153   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess the safety of transitioning subjects to Raptiva therapy from standard oral systemic or phototherapy by overlapping with Raptiva whlist tapering the initial systemic therapy or phototherapy dose.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Evaluate efficacy of efalizumab in subjects with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis who have failed to respond to, or who have a contraindication to, or are intolerant to other systemic therapies including cyclosporin, methotrexate and PUVA over a 12 week period.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    To be eligible for inclusion into this study, the subjects must fulfil all of the following criteria:

    1. Are at least 18 years old.
    2. Have plaque psoriasis with an sPGA score of at least moderate or severe at time of initiation of previous systemic treatment.
    3. Are transitioning from methotrexate, cyclosporine, retinoids, PUVA or NBUVB and initiating treatment with Raptiva according to the decision of the investigator and in accordance with the indication and the recommendations of the Raptiva Investigator Brochure, i.e. to which they have failed to respond, have a contraindication to or are intolerant of other systemic therapies.
    4. Agree to participate in the study, and to disclose any medical events to the investigator. The subject must be willing and able to comply with the protocol requirements for the duration of the study.
    5. Have given written informed consent with the understanding that consent may be withdrawn at any time without prejudice to future medical care.
    6. Women of childbearing potential must use appropriate contraception during treatment and up to the last study visit (safety follow-up visit). For men, it is also mandatory to practice contraception during participation in the trial, as there are no existing data on the effect of Raptiva on spermatogenesis.
    7. Discontinuation of any investigational drug or treatment 3 months prior to study start or as per washout requirements from previous protocol.

    No primary vaccinations (e.g., tetanus, booster, influenza vaccine) for at least 14 days prior to first dose of study drug.For the purposes of this trial, women of childbearing potential is defined as: “All female subjects after puberty unless they are post-menopausal for at least two years, are surgically sterile or are sexually inactive.”
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    To be eligible for inclusion into this study, the subjects must not meet any of the following criteria:
    1. Any contra-indication to Raptiva, according to the Investigator Brochure, or as follows:
    · Hypersensitivity to Raptiva or to any of the excipients.
    · Subjects with history of malignancies.
    · History of active tuberculosis (TB) or currently undergoing treatment for TB. PPD testing or chest X-ray is required for high-risk subjects. Subjects with a positive PPD (not due to BCG vaccination) or chest X-ray will be excluded.
    · Subjects with specific forms of psoriasis like guttate, erythrodermic or pustular psoriasis as sole or predominant form of psoriasis.
    · Subjects with immunodeficiencies.
    2. Simultaneous participation in another clinical trial.
    3. Subjects experiencing a psoriasis exacerbation during screening period.
    4. Subjects who have previously been on Raptiva treatment who withdrew due to lack of efficacy or an adverse event. If withdrawal was due to another non-drug reason (vaccination, or infection) then the subject can be included in this study.
    5. History of hepatitis B, hepatitis C or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
    6. History of thrombocytopenia, haemolytic anaemia or clinically significant anaemia.
    7. Hepatic enzyme levels ≥3 times the upper limit of normal or serum creatinine level ≥2 times the upper limit of normal.
    8. Pregnant or breast-feeding.
    9. Any medical condition (prior or existing) that, in the judgment of the investigator or sponsor, could jeopardize the subject’s safety following exposure to study drug.
    Note: Raptiva should be used with caution in subjects with renal or hepatic impairment.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is safety, and will include all AEs, SAEs, and laboratory data (haematology and biochemistry) and urinalysis at all time points, divided by tapering and previous treatment.
