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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine if targeted intervention with Zoledronic acid can prevent
    the development of raised bone turnover and/or focal bone lesions in
    subjects who are genetically predisposed to develop PDB because they
    carry mutations in SQSTM1 that have previously been associated with
    Determinar si la intervención dirigida con acido zoledrónico puede evitar una elevada remodelación ósea y/o lesiones óseas localizadas en individuos que están genéticamente predispuestos a desarrollar PDB puesto que portan mutaciones que han sido previamente asociadas al PDB.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. investigate the effects of genetic testing and intervention on quality of
    life and on anxiety or depression in subjects with SQSTM1 mutations
    2. determine whether there is any difference in the biochemical makers
    which are predictive of the disease in the group who do not have the
    mutation compared to the group who have the mutation
    3. determine if specialised biomarkers of bone turnover, gene
    expression, the presence of antibodies and genetic profiling are of value
    in predicting which patients develop PDB (or complications of PDB) as
    compared with those who do not and if they are of value in predicting
    treatment response and/or the development of side effects with
    En este estudio se incluirá un grupo observacional que presente el mismo riesgo de desarrollar la enfermedad de Paget que la población general. El objetivo de este grupo será contestar las siguientes preguntas (dicho grupo no recibirá ningún tratamiento):
    1. ¿Someterse a un análisis genético produce un aumento de la ansiedad y la depresión, incluso si no se ha encontrado ninguna mutación en el gen SQSTM1?

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The total number of subjects who develop new bone lesions after 5 years.
    The development of elevated bone turnover over 3 years, as measured by ALP.
    In the observational group, the primary endpoint will be anxiety / depression over 3 years, measured using the HAD scale.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    In the biochemical marker sub-study, patients will be followed up for 5 years and investigated for the development of bone lesions. At the end of the study, we will perform a pooled analysis of data from the bone lesion sub-study and biochemical marker sub-study to determine if there is an overall effect of treatment on bone lesions.

    Quality of life, and anxiety and depression assessed by the SF-36, BPI and HADS questionnaires will be evaluated in the biochemical marker and bone-lesion sub-studies.

    The development of elevated bone turnover, as measured by ALP and quality of life, assessed by the SF-36 questionnaire will be evaluated in the observational sub-study.

    Specialised markers will be used to determine if it is possible to predict which patients develop PDB (or complications of PDB) as compared with those who do not and to determine if they are of value in predicting treatment response and/or the development of side effects with treatment.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point

    Due to the nature of this study, longer term follow up of these subjects
    may well be an option. This will depend on end of
    trial analysis or results and continuing funding. If this occurs,
    intervention will continue.
    If this does not occur, participants will need to speak to their local
    doctor/clinician to determine if this is something they would consider
    Debido a la naturaleza del estudio, se considera la opción de un seguimiento a largo plazo de los sujetos, lo que dependerá del final del análisis del ensayo o los resultados y de la continuidad de la subvención. Si esto sucede, entonces continuará la intervención. En caso contrario, los participantes necesitarán contactar con su médico de familia para determinar si éste considera llevarlo a cabo.
