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   41470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6815   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of HMPL-004 given at 1200 mg/day, or 1800 mg/day in three divided doses, compared with placebo, in patients with mild to moderate ulcerative colitis as defined by the percent of patients in each treatment group attaining clinical response at week 8, which is a decrease in the Mayo Score from the baseline by ≥ 3 points AND ≥ 30% decrease in the Mayo score along with either a decrease in the rectal bleeding score ≥ 1 OR an absolute rectal bleeding score ≤ 1.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To determine if there is a significant difference in the proportion of patients in each treatment group with a clinical remission at week 8.
    • To determine if there is a significant difference in the proportion of patients in each treatment group with a significant decrease from baseline in the Mayo endoscopy sub score ≥ 1 AND absolute score ≤ 1 (mucosal healing).
    • To determine the time to response
    • To compare the decrease in the mean and median Mayo Score at baseline and week 8 in each treatment group.
    • To determine if there is a significant difference in any of the above efficacy measurements in patients with/without Mesalamine used as a concomitant medication.
    • To assess if there is a dose response difference in any of the above efficacy measurements in patients with two dose level of the HMPL-004.
    • To assess safety in patients

    Exploratory Objective:
    To determine normalization of the CRP values in those patients entering the study with elevated values.
