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   38161   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6268   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.

    • Oral retinoids, methotrexate, cyclosporine and systemic corticosteroids within 1 month prior to start of study drug.
    • Approved immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory biologic agents (e.g., infliximab, etanercept, alefacept, efalizumab, adalimumab) within 3 months prior to start of study drug.
    • Investigational non lymphocyte-depleting biologic agents (recombinant proteins or monoclonal antibodies) within 6 months prior to start of study drug or lymphocyte-depleting biologic agents at any point in time.
    • Other systemic immunosuppressive drugs (e.g., mycophenolic acid, sirolimus) within 3 months prior to start of study drug.
    • Treatment with another investigational drug within 3 months prior to start of study drug.
    • Vaccination with live vaccines within 3 months prior to start of study drug.

    8. Poorly controlled type I or II diabetes.
    9. History or presence of macular edema or diabetic retinopathy (as confirmed by fundoscopy within 28 days prior to randomization).

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)

    The difference to be detected is a placebo-corrected mean decrease of 30 units. Percentage change of PASI is expected to be normally distributed with a standard deviation (SD) of 29%.
    For each of the following criteria, within the cohort of active-treated subjects, the primary endpoint will be further explored in the two subsets of subjects who fulfill (Group A) or do not fulfill (Group B):
    – Peripheral total lymphocyte count ≤ 0.8 10^9/L at Week 6 visit, 6 hours post-dose.
    – Reduction of peripheral total lymphocyte count by ≥ 80% compared to baseline at Week 6 visit, 6 hours post-dose.
