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   42782   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7047   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    This study is exploratory in nature, therefore, no formal hypothesis testing is planned. The study objectives are:
    1. To evaluate the safety and tolerability and determine the highest tolerable dose of laquinimod (up to 2mg/day), in subjects with active moderate to severe CD
    2. To evaluate the clinical effect and dose response of laquinimod (0.5-2mg/day), in subjects with active moderate to severe CD
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    -
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    The following two sub-studies are fully described in the same Sponsor' protocol CD-LAQ-201:

    1. Pharmacokinetic ancillary study (PK):

    Blood samples for PK analysis - 24h profile - will be collected from subjects in the first cohort (0.5 mg/placebo) on week 4.

    A single, pre-dose sample will be collected from the first cohort (0.5 mg/placebo) on week 1 as part of steady state course assessment.

    (This study is an ancillary study to be performed in subset of sites).

    2. Voluntary participation in a pharmakogenetic sub-study:

    A single sample of approximately 6ml (about 1 teaspoon) of blood will be collected only once during the study.

    The objective of this pharmacogenetic study is to collect and store DNA samples for use in future exploratory analyses for the assessment of possible associations between genetic polymorphisms and response to laquinimod.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects must meet all the inclusion criteria to be eligible:

    1.Males and females 18-65 years old (inclusive).
    2.Subjects diagnosed with Crohn’s disease for at least 3 months, which has been appropriately documented and supported by endoscopy or radiology (performed within 36 months prior to screening and after surgical resection), or surgery
    3.Moderate to severe Crohn's disease patients as determined by a CDAI score of 220-450 (inclusive).
    4.Subjects with CRP levels above 5 mg/L.
    5.Subjects willing and able to provide written, informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Any of the following will exclude the subject from entering the study:
    1.Subjects with a diagnosis of Indeterminate Colitis.
    2.Subjects with positive results on stool culture for enteric pathogens (Salmonella, Shigella, Yersinia, Campylobacter and Clostridia Difficile toxin assay).
    3.Subjects who have had bowel surgery within the 3 months prior to screening or with planned elective surgery or hospitalization during the course of the study (that may interfere with study compliance or outcome)
    4.Subjects with clinically significant Short Bowel Syndrome.

    6.Subjects with intra-abdominal abscess.
    7.Subjects with fistula with clinical or radiological evidence of abscess.
    8.Subjects with ileostomy, colostomy or who receive parenteral nutrition.
    9.Subjects with a clinically significant or unstable medical or surgical condition that, in the Investigator’s opinion, would preclude safe and complete study participation, as determined by medical history, physical examinations, ECG, laboratory tests or imaging.
    10.Subjects with a ≥2x upper limit of normal (ULN) serum elevation of either of the following at screening: ALT, AST, GGT, ALKP or direct bilirubin.
    11.A QTc interval which is > 500 msec
    12.Subjects with history of any malignancy in the last year, excluding basal cell carcinoma.
    13.Subjects treated with oral corticosteroids (e.g prednisolone/budesonide), who have initiated this treatment within less than 4 weeks prior to screening
    14.Subjects treated with more than 20mg/day of prednisolone (or equivalent) or budesonide > 6mg/day for CD at screening, or whose corticosteroid dosage regimen is not stable for at least 2 weeks prior to screening.
    15.Subjects treated with 5-ASA who are not on stable dose for at least 2 weeks prior to screening.
    16.Subjects treated with antibiotics for CD who are not on a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to screening.
    17.Subjects treated with 6-MP, AZA or MTX, who have initiated this treatment within 12 weeks prior to screening or who are not on a stable dose for at least 6 weeks prior to screening.
    18.Subjects treated with Anti-TNFs within 8 weeks prior to screening.
    19.Subjects treated with cyclosporine, tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil or thalidomide within 2 months prior to screening

    21.Subjects who have used any other investigational drugs within 3 months prior to screening.
    22.Use of inhibitors of CYP3A4 within 2 weeks prior to baseline visit (1 month for fluoxetine).
    23.Use of amiodarone within 2 years prior to screening visit
    24.Women who are pregnant or nursing at the time of screening, or who intend to be during the study period.
    25.Women of child-bearing potential who do not practice an acceptable method of birth control.
    26.A known drug hypersensitivity that would preclude administration of laquinimod, such as hypersensitivity to: mannitol, meglumine or sodium stearyl fumarate.
    27.Subjects unable to comply with the planned schedule of study visits and study procedures.
