Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43800   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female of any age.
    2. Clinically definite diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis according to the modified
    Gomez criteria (Roach et al, 1998; Hyman and Whittemore, 2000, Table 5-1).
    Clinically definite diagnosis is defined as either of the following:
    a. Two Major Features from Table 5-1.
    b. One Major Feature plus two Minor Features from Table 5-1.
    3. Presence of at least one SEGA lesion ≥ 1.0 cm in its longest diameter using
    Note: SEGA lesions are only diagnosed in patients with TSC. They arise in the
    subependymal layer of the lateral ventricle and are always located near the
    foramen of Monro and enhance homogeneously with contrast on MRI with no
    evidence of surrounding edema.
    4. A recent MRI of the brain completed within 3 weeks (21 days) prior to the
    patient’s randomization must be compared with an MRI of the brain performed at
    an earlier stage of patient care (pre-baseline) and should demonstrate at least one of the following:
    a. Serial growth, defined as at least a 25% increase in SEGA volume, or
    b. Presence of a new SEGA lesion ≥ 1 cm in its longest diameter, or
    c. New or worsening hydrocephalus defined by assessment of ventricular
    configuration changes, ventricular cap signs (periventricular edema) and
    qualitative assessment of CSF flow dynamics.
    If a previous MRI is not available, a comparative review of two previous CT scans is
    also acceptable to establish any of the above mentioned three conditions. In this
    case, baseline/screening MRI should still be performed.
    If only one prior CT scan was available, a second CT scan should be obtained to
    allow like to like comparison of cranial images. Again, the baseline MRI should still
    be performed. CT scans should be digitized and sent to the central reviewer for
    confirmation of eligibility.
    If the pre-baseline MRI or CT was only available on film (non-digital format) or
    software for volumetric assessment was not available at the local site, the local
    radiologist should make a qualitative assessment of the above-mentioned three
    criteria. The non-digital MRI or CT must also be sent to Central Radiology for
    5. If female and of child bearing potential, documentation of negative pregnancy
    test prior to enrollment. Sexually active pre-menopausal female patients (and
    female partners of male patients) must use adequate contraceptive measures,
    excluding estrogen containing contraceptives, while on study.
    6. Written informed consent. Parents or legal guardians must sign the informed
    consent for patients under 18 years old and for patients with developmental
    delays. In addition, all minors aged 7 through 14 must sign an assent form, while
    minors aged 15 up to 17 must sign an assent line on the Informed Consent Form
    that will be signed by the parents or the legal guardians.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Patients for whom SEGA related surgery is likely to be required, in the opinion of
    the investigator.
    2. Prior brain surgery.
    3. History of myocardial infarction, angina or stroke related to atherosclerosis
    4. Impaired lung function, defined as any of the following:
    a. FEV1 ≤ 70% of predicted, or
    b. DLCO ≤ 70% of predicted, or
    c. ≤ 88% O2 saturation at rest in room air, or
    d. for patients unable to perform pulmonary function testing:
    i. clinical evidence of significantly impaired lung function, or
    ii. radiological evidence of significant lung disease other than LAM
    Note: Patients unable to perform a pulmonary function test (e.g. younger children,
    patients with developmental delay) will have a baseline chest CT scan performed
    5. Significant hematological or hepatic abnormality (i.e. transaminase levels > 2.5 x
    ULN or serum bilirubin > 1.5 x ULN, hemoglobin < 9 g/dL, platelets < 80,000/
    mm3, absolute neutrophil count < 1,000/mm3).
    6. Pregnancy or breast feeding.
    7. Intercurrent infection at date of randomization.
    8. Prior history of organ transplant.
    9. Recent surgery (involving entry into a body cavity or requiring sutures) within the
    2 months prior to randomization.
    10. Prior therapy with mTOR inhibitors (e.g.sirolimus, temsirolimus, everolimus).
    11. Use of an investigational drug within the 30 days prior to randomization.
    12. Uncontrolled hyperlipidemia: Fasting serum cholesterol > 300 mg/dL OR > 7.75
    mmol/L AND Fasting triglycerides > 2.5 x ULN.

    dose warfarin).
    15. Patients with known history of HIV seropositivity.
    16. Inability to attend scheduled clinic visits.
    17. For the purpose of MRI assessments:
    a. Ferromagnetic metal implants (e.g., braces, some types of aneurysm clips,
    shrapnel) unless approved as safe for use in MR scanner
    b. Patients suffering from uncontrollable claustrophobia or physically unable to fit
    into the machine (e.g., obesity, etc).
    18. Serum creatinine > 1.5 x ULN.
    19. History of malignancy in the past two years, other than squamous or basal cell
    skin cancer.
    20. Use of estrogen containing medications.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    SEGA response rate is determined from the Independent
    Central Radiological Review of MRIs. SEGA response rate is defined as the
    proportion of patients with a reduction in SEGA volume of at least 50% relative to
    baseline, where SEGA volume is the sum of the volumes of all target SEGA lesions
    identified at baseline, and confirmed with a second scan at least 4 weeks later.
    In addition, response requires that:
    • the non-target SEGA lesions have not unequivocally worsened
    • no new SEGA lesions (of ≥1cm) are identified
    • there is no new or worsening hydrocephalus, defined by central radiological
    assessment of ventricular configuration changes, ventricular cap signs
    (periventricular edema) and quantitative assessment of CSF flow dynamics.
    SEGA response rate will be determined in the Full Analysis Set (FAS), defined as all
    randomized patients analyzed according to the treatment they were assigned to at
