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   35419   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5814   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Safety:

    • Occurrence, nature, (Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities [MedDRA] preferred term), duration, severity (for non-serious AEs), action taken and relationship to vaccination of any unsolicited systemic adverse events (AEs) reported in the 30 minutes after each injection
    • Occurrence, time to onset, number of days of occurrence, action taken and severity of solicited (pre-listed in the subject diary and Case Report Form [CRF]) injection site reactions and systemic reactions occurring up to 7 days following each injection
    • Occurrence, nature (MedDRA preferred term), time to onset, duration, severity (for non-serious AEs), action taken and relationship to vaccination of unsolicited (spontaneously reported) AEs within 21 days following each injection, as applicable*
    • Occurrence, nature, time to onset, duration, seriousness criteria, relationship to vaccination and outcome of serious adverse events (SAEs) during the whole study period
    • The occurrence of the following reactions (MedDRA Preferred Terms given in parentheses) following each injection will be more especially reported in subjects over 2 years of age (as defined for adults in the European Medicines Agency [EMEA] Note for Guidance [CPMP/BWP/214/96])
    • Injection site induration ≥5 cm for at least 4 consecutive days following each injection
    • Injection site ecchymosis (injection site hemorrhage) in the 3 days following each injection
    • Temperature >38°C (pyrexia) for 24 hours or more in the 3 days following each injection
    • Malaise in the 3 days following each injection
    • Shivering (chills) in the 3 days following each injection
    * for subjects aged 9 to 17 years receiving the D0-D14 vaccination schedule, unsolicited AEs will only be collected up to 14 days after Vac1, and up to 21 days after Vac2.

    Immunogenicity:

    Immunogenicity will be assessed in all subjects receiving the D0-D21 vaccination schedule.

    • Anti-hemagglutinin (HA) antibody titers against the A/H5N1 strain using the hemagglutination inhibition method with horse erythrocytes (HIH) will be obtained from duplicate testing in the immunogenicity subset prior to Vac1, prior to Vac2 and 21 days after Vac2 (Vac2+21D), and summarized at the subject level by individual geometric mean (GM) of duplicates at each timepoint. The following endpoints will be derived:
    • Subjects with titer ≥8 (1/dilution) (1/dil) on Vac1, Vac2 and Vac2+21D
    • Individual titer ratios: Vac2/Vac1, Vac2+21D/Vac1 and Vac2+21D/Vac2
    • Proportion of subjects with titer ≥32 (1/dil) on Vac1, Vac2 and Vac2+21D
    • Seroconversion, i.e. for subjects with a pre-vaccination titer <8 (1/dil), post-vaccination titer ≥32 (1/dil), or significant increase, i.e. for subjects with a pre-vaccination titer ≥8 (1/dil), ≥4-fold increase of the titer post-vaccination, from Vac1 to Vac2, from Vac1 to Vac2+21D

    • Neutralizing antibody titer using the seroneutralization (SN) method will be obtained from single testing in the immunogenicity subset, prior to Vac1, prior to Vac2 and on Vac2+21days, and provided at the subject level at each timepoint. The following endpoints will be derived:
    • Subjects with titer ≥10 (1/dil) on Vac1, Vac2 and Vac2+21D
    • Individual titer ratios: Vac2/Vac1, Vac2+21D/Vac1 and Vac2+21D/Vac2
    • 2- and 4-fold increase from Vac1 to Vac2 and to Vac2+21
