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   36348   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5989   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.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    healthy young males
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Rationale for the study:
    This project investigates the effect of ACE-inhibition on cellular metabolism by gene expression profiling of human muscle tissue, obtained by biopsy prior to and after ramipril intake. This should contribute to our understanding of the pathomechanisms involved in diabetes and the clinical effect of ACE-inhibition on patients with diabetes/metabolic syndrome.

    Aims of the study:
    To identify and describe metabolic/signaling pathways in muscle tissue which are affected or induced by ACE-inhibition. This might help to identify targets which could serve as early molecular markers of metabolic disease and success of therapy applicable in a clinical setting.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    none
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    • Blood pressure between 110/45 and <140/90 (twice at screening)

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • History of renal artery stenosis, angioneurotic edema, psoriasis, relevant renal diseases
    • RR at screening < 110/45 mmHg.
    • Diabetes, history of hypertension, RR > 140/90 at screening, cardiovascular disease
    • Known Diabetes mellitus of parents
    • HIV or Hepatitis B/C positive virology
    • Allergy or hypersensitivity against ACE-inhibitors / ramipril or to xylocain

    • Any drug intake 2 weeks prior to first study day
    • History of excessive bleeding tendency / hemophilia

    • Suspected non-compliance with study instructions and life-style requirements
    • Alcohol or drug abuse
    • Blood/Plasma donation within 4 weeks prior to study day

    • Current smoking (any quantity), (at least 6 months of non-smoking required)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Genome-wide gene expression measurements in skeletal muscle at baseline and in response to ramipril intake. Effects common to all subjects as well as intra-individual differences will be identified and analyzed. Study goal is identification of genes encoding e.g. metabolic proteins, whose expression in muscle tissue is modified by ramipril.

    Optional outcome parameters:
    Previously described single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system may be determined from stored blood optionally if further clarification is requested to interpret potential inter-individual differences of gene expression profiles.
