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   37504   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6153   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To characterize the safety & tolerability of ofatumumab administered as a single subcut dose in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) To identify and characterize requirement for pre-medication with systemic steroids in association with subcut ofatumumab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
    2) To explore the pharmacodynamic dose-response curve for subcut ofatumumab.
    3) To determine the minimum dose of ofatumumab that results in target level of depletion of peripheral blood B- lymphocytes after single subcut. administration. Target level is defined as >95% or to below LLQ, as measured by change from baseline at week 4 and/or the median value across weeks 2-4.
    4) To characterize the PK/PD relationship following single subcut. dose of ofatumumab.
