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   41467   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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Evaluate the occurrence of Injection Site Reactions (ISR) following drug administration with RebiSmartTM
    • Evaluate overall subject satisfaction of RebiSmartTM use regarding the occurrence of adverse events and pain perception at the injection site by the Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Concern Questionnaire (MSTCQ)
    • Assess subject’s and trainer’s evaluation of specific characteristics of RebiSmartTM by a User Trial Questionnaire
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Males and females between 18 and 65 years of age
    • Female subjects must be neither pregnant nor breast-feeding and must lack child-bearing potential, as defined by either:
    - Post-menopausal or surgically sterile, or
    - Using a highly effective method of contraception for the duration of the study. This is defined as a method that result in a low failure rate (i.e., less than 1% per year) when used consistently and correctly, and includes for instance implants, injectables, combined oral contraceptives, intra-uterine device (IUD)s, sexual abstinence or vasectomised partner.
    • Have RMS according to the revised McDonald Criteria 2005
    • Have disease duration for at least 3 months

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Have any disease other than MS that could better explain his/her signs and symptoms
    • Receive any other injectable medications on a regular basis during the week prior to the screening period or throughout the duration of the study. The administration of a single injection for treatment or prophylaxis of a condition unrelated to the patient’s MS or the patient’s RNF therapy (e.g., influenza or pneumococcus vaccination) will be acceptable
    • Receive any MS therapy other than Rebif / RNF (e.g., other disease-modifying drug [DMD]s: immunomodulatory, immunosuppressive agents or combination therapy) within 12 months prior to study enrolment or at any time during the study
    • Receive oral or systemic corticosteroids or adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) within 30 days prior to SD1
    • Have inadequate liver function, defined by a alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 3 x upper limit of normal (ULN), or alkaline phosphatase > 2 x ULN, or total bilirubin > 2 x ULN if associated with any elevation of ALT or alkaline phosphatase
    • Have inadequate bone marrow reserve, defined as a white blood cell count less than 0.5 x lower limit of normal
    • Have moderate to severe renal impairment
    • History of any chronic pain syndrome
    • Any visual or physical impairment that precludes the subject self-injecting the treatment using the RebiSmartTM
