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   42159   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6934   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to assess the effects of AVE0010 on glycemic control used in a two-step dose titration regimen in comparison to placebo in terms of HbA1c reduction (absolute change) over a period of 12 weeks in patients with type 2 diabetes not treated with antidiabetic agents.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are:
    • To assess the effects of AVE0010 on:
    − Glycemic control in comparison to placebo in terms of HbA1c reduction when it is used in a one-step dose titration regimen over a period of 12 weeks,
    − Body weight at week 12,
    − Fasting plasma glucose at week 12,
    − 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose after standardized meal challenge test at week 12 in a subgroup of all the patients in selected sites (approximately 50% of the randomized patients),
    • To assess AVE0010 safety and tolerability over a period of 12 weeks,
    • To assess AVE0010 PK using population PK approach,
    • To assess anti-AVE0010 antibody development.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Meal Challenge Test
    Objective: All patients in selected sites leading to approximately half of the randomized patients will undergo a standardized meal challenge test to assess fasting and postprandial glucose at V2 (week-1) and at V9 (week 12, final visit, primary endpoint assessment).
