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   35474   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5826   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
    The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of two therapeutic regimens of boceprevir 800 mg three times a day (TID) orally (PO) (hereafter called boceprevir) in combination with PegIntron™ 1.5 µg/kg weekly (QW) subcutaneously (SC) plus weight-based dosing (WBD) of ribavirin (600 mg/day to 1400 mg/day) PO (hereafter called PEG + RBV [WBD]) to therapy with PEG + RBV [WBD] alone in adult subjects with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) genotype 1 with demonstrated interferon responsiveness who failed prior treatment with peginterferon/ribavirin.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) To evaluate the safety of boceprevir when used in combination with PEG + RBV (WBD).

    2) To define predictors of sustained virologic response (SVR) such as epidemiologic factors, disease characteristics and on-treatment response.

    3) To develop the relationship between steady state pharmacokinetic parameters, obtained from a population based pharmacokinetic model and responses in a subset of subjects.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion Criteria for interferon responsive CHC patients who have failed treatment:
    1. For inclusion in the study, subjects must have a qualifying regimen defined as peginterferon alfa-2a plus ribavirin or peginterferon alfa-2b plus ribavirin for a minimum of 12 weeks. If a subject has received more than one such regimen, the most recent regimen is considered the qualifying regimen.
    Note: Prior maintenance therapy, following failure of qualifying therapy, with any interferon alpha is acceptable; subject must discontinue maintenance therapy 1 month prior to the screening visit.

    2. During qualifying regimen, subjects must have either:
    a. a documented undetectable HCV-RNA level within 30 days of EOT and a subsequent detectable HCV-RNA during follow-up OR
    b. a documented decline in HCV-RNA by greater than or equal to 2log10 by TW 12
    Note: For subjects who did not participate in SPRI protocols, qualifying virology reports and documentation of qualifying previous treatment regimen must be completely de-identified and faxed to the sponsor's project physician for confirmation that the subject qualifies for this study.

    3. Subject must have documented CHC genotype 1 infection. The HCV-RNA result obtained from the central laboratory at the screening visit must confirm genotype 1 infection and be >10,000 IU/mL. Subjects with other or mixed genotypes are not eligible.

    4. Subject must have a liver biopsy with histology consistent with CHC and no other etiology. Copies of the pathology report and slides are required for the subject to be included in the study. The pathology report and histology slides must be available at the study site prior to subject randomization.Two unstained slides are preferred; however, one slide stained with hematoxylin plus eosin (H & E) plus one slide stained with Masson’s trichrome will be accepted (slides should be reviewed by the investigator to confirm adequacy). The central pathologist reading will be used for analysis purposes.
    a. No cirrhosis: Biopsy must be within 3 years of the Screening visit. For biopsies performed more than 18 months prior to the Screening visit, fibrosis marker testing will be performed to assess level of fibrosis;
    b. Cirrhosis: Any historic liver biopsy demonstrating cirrhosis will be sufficient regardless of length of time since biopsy.

    5. Subjects with bridging fibrosis or cirrhosis must have an ultrasound within 6 months of the Screening visit (or between Screening and Day 1) with no findings suspicious for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

    6. Subjects participating in SPRI maintenance protocols P02570 or P02569 must have been compliant with, and completed all study related requirements to be eligible for this protocol.

    General Inclusion Criteria
    7. Subject must be 18 years old or older.

    8. Subject must weigh between 40 kg and 125 kg.

    9. Subject and subject’s partner(s) must each agree to use acceptable methods of contraception as specified in Section 7.6.1 for at least 2 weeks prior to Day 1 and continue until at least 6 months after last dose of study drug, or longer if dictated by local regulations.

    10. Subjects must be willing to give written informed consent.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    -Subjects known to be co-infected with HIV or hepatitis B virus (HBsAg positive), or infected with HCV genotypes other than genotype 1 (including mixed genotypes)
    -Subjects who required discontinuation of peg/rbv for an adverse event considered by the investigator to be possibly or probably related to ribavirin and/or interferon during any previous therapy with interferon and ribavirin
    -Treatment with ribavirin within 90 days and any interferon-alpha within 1 month of Screening
    -Treatment for CHC with any investigational medication. All herbal remedies used for CHC treatment other than silymarin (milk thistle) must be discontinued before Day 1.
    -Treatment with any investigational drug within 30 days of the randomization visit in this study
    -Participation in any other clinical trial within 30 days of randomization or intention to participate in another clinical trial during participation in this study

    F.3.3.1Women of childbearing potential not using contraception For clinical trials recorded in the database before the 10th March 2011 this question read: "Women of childbearing potential" and did not include the words "not using contraception". An answer of yes could have included women of child bearing potential whether or not they would be using contraception. The answer should therefore be understood in that context. This trial was recorded in the database on 2008-10-13. Yes

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    All subjects who receive at least one dose of boceprevir will be offered the opportunity to enroll in a 3-year long-term follow-up study (P05063) after completing their participation in this study. Control Arm subjects with detectable HCV-RNA at TW24 will be eligible to participate in an access trial (P05514) and receive boceprevir + Peg 1.5 mcg/kg/week + RBV for up to 44 weeks.
