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   39190   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6421   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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. To examine the efficacy of PF-04360365, as assessed by the 70 point Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-cog) and Disability Assessment for Dementia (DAD) scales, in subjects with mild-to-moderate AD;

    2. To determine the effect of PF-04360365 on the following biochemical markers:
    Aβ species in CSF and plasma; CSF tau and phosphotau levels;

    3. To examine the effect of PF-04360365 on CSF safety labs in the subset of subjects receiving lumbar punctures;

    3. The subject must have a reliable caregiver with contact at least 3 times per week (combination of face to face visits and telephone contact acceptable) who will facilitate the subject’s full participation in the study. Caregivers must have sufficient subject interaction to be able to provide meaningful input into the CDR/CDR-SB, NPI, and DAD.

Subjects must be on a stable dose of background cholinesterase inhibitor and/or memantine at least 60 days prior to dosing, with the following caveats: background cholinesterase inhibitor and/or memantine therapy is not required if the subject had previously demonstrated a lack of toleration. Additionally, although strongly encouraged, background therapy is not mandatory for a world region where it is not the standard of care;

    8. Subjects must weigh 35-100 kg.

    9. Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document indicating that the subject (or a legally acceptable representative) and caregiver have been informed of all pertinent aspects of the trial. Subject must be able to provide assent and assent may be re-evaluated during the study at regular intervals;

    11. Women of non child-bearing potential defined as defined in the Lifestyle Guidelines;

    12. Diabetic patients may be included provided that their disease and serum glucose values are controlled and being actively managed, as assessed by the PI using a fasting blood sugar and/or HgA1C (per the PIs medical judgment for diabetics);

    13. In general good health, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator (PI), based on medical history, physical examination, vital signs, 12-lead ECG, and laboratory values, including hematology and chemistry values.
