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   36776   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6073   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
    The secondary objectives of this study are:
    • To assess the effects of AVE5530 25 mg and 50 mg on LDL-C over 6 months and 12 months
    • To assess the effects of AVE5530 25 mg and 50 mg on total Cholesterol and Apolipoprotein- B (Apo-B) over 12 weeks, 6 months and 12 months

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Adult patients:

Patients on thyroid replacement therapy can be included if the dosage of thyroxine has been stable for at least 3 months prior to screening and their s-TSH sensitive TSH) levels is within ±10% of the normal ranges of the Central Laboratory.
    • Any conditions considered to be medically sound by the investigator that would limit the patient’s safe participation in the study such as: Active liver disease, as shown by but not limited to alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate amino-transferase (AST) > 3xUpper Limit Normal (ULN) range, Neutrophils < 1,500/mm3, Platelets counts < 100 000/ mm3, Unexplained CPK > 3xULN, Recent history (within 3 months of study screening and through to randomization) of moderate or severe congestive heart failure [New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or IV], Recent history of unstable angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, coronary bypass
    surgery or angioplasty within 3 months of study screening, Unstable or severe peripheral artery disease within 3 months of study screening and through to randomization, Positive test for Hepatitis B surface antigen and/or Hepatitis C antibody, Known to be Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) positive
    − Presence of any other conditions (e.g. geographic, social….) actual or anticipated that the investigator feels would restrict or limit the patient’s participation for the duration of the study
    − Patient is the Investigator or any Sub-Investigator, research assistant, pharmacist, study coordinator, other staff or relative thereof directly involved in the conduct of the protocol.
    − Administration of any lipid-lowering treatment other than the ongoing statin in the preceding 6 weeks or after the screening visit.

    Exclusion criteria related to AVE5530 compound:
    • Pregnant or breast-feeding women,
