Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43691   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7246   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Assess the effect of eculizumab to reduce thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) as
    indicated by thrombocytopenia as measured by platelet count change from baseline through the treatment period in patients with plasma therapy-resistant Atypical Hemolytic-Uremic Syndrome (aHUS).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Evaluate additional efficacy endpoints such as the effect of eculizumab on:
    − TMA Intervention Rate (# PT and # Dialysis Events/Patient/Day) during the
    Treatment Period compared with the TMA Intervention Rate prior to the first
    dose of Investigational Product.
    − TMA-Event Free status defined as the absence of [1] decrease in platelet
    count of >25% from the Platelet Count Pre-PT Baseline Set-Point; [2] PT
    while the patient is receiving eculizumab, and [3] new dialysis for at least12
    − Key Hemolytic measures.
    − Quality of Life measures.
    − Renal function measures.
    − TMA Remission.
    • Characterize the overall safety and tolerability of eculizumab.
    • Describe the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of eculizumab
    in patients with aHUS.
    • Perform a series of exploratory efficacy analyses.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female patients from 12 and up to 18 years of age who have been diagnosed with Atypical Hemolytic-Uremic Syndrome (aHUS). Patients may be newly
    diagnosed, experiencing a relapse of the disease, or having a post-transplant
    recurrence of the disease.
    2. Patients must exhibit a decrease in platelet count despite at least 4 Plasma Therapy (PT) treatments in the 1 week immediately prior to screening. At screening, platelet count must be < 150 x 10^9/L and at least 25% lower than the average of 3 platelet counts obtained during remission and at least 1 month apart over the 12 months prior to screening (designated the “average remission platelet count”).
    3. If historical counts are not available, platelet count at screening must be < 75 x 10^9/L despite PT treatment administration of at least 4 PT treatments in the 1 week
    immediately prior to screening.
    4. Known complement regulatory protein genetic abnormality, i.e., a mutation in
    Complement Protein 3, factor H or associated factor, factor I, or membrane cofactor
    protein 1 (MCP-1) or known Factor B gain-of-function mutation, or known Anti-
    CFH antibody (“aHUS lesions”).
    • Patients diagnosed with aHUS with any of these aHUS lesions are eligible and
    will be assigned to one of the following parallel categories during the treatment
    period of the trial:
    − (Category 1) Complement Protein 3 or factor H or factor I functional
    deficiency or abnormal factor interaction (C3/CFH/CFI FFP Group);
    − (Category 2) Factor B Gain of Function;
    − (Category 3) Anti-CFH Antibody (anti-CFH Group);
    − (Category 4) MCP-1 deficiency (MCP-1 Group);
    5. Patients diagnosed with HUS of the atypical type without documented complement
    regulatory protein genetic abnormality or known anti-CFH antibody are eligible if
    other etiologies of HUS have been ruled out as confirmed in the Exclusion Criteria
    (i.e., including Shiga-toxin negative, non-infectious, non-drug-exposure-related [e.g.,
    cyclosporine]), no known HIV positivity, and anti-phospholipid antibody negative).
    Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura also must be ruled out (i.e., ADAMTS-13
    activity must be > 5%; see Exclusion Criteria). Patients meeting these conditions
    will be assigned to Category 5. In addition, these patients will undergo genetic
    testing to determine if a mutation can be identified. If a mutation is identified, the
    patient will be reassigned to the appropriate category.
    6. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level ≥ ULN;
    7. Creatinine level ≥ ULN for age (patients requiring acute dialysis for acute renal
    failure also eligible).
    8. Female patients of childbearing potential must be practicing an effective, reliable and medically acceptable contraceptive regimen during the entire duration of the study, including the follow-up period.
    9. Patient’s parents/legal guardian must be willing and able to give written informed
    consent and patients must be willing to give written informed assent (if applicable as
    determined by the IRB/IEC).
    10. Able and willing to comply with study procedures.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. ADAMTS-13 inhibitor or deficiency (i.e., ADAMTS-13 activity <5%) as measured
    at the screening visit.
    2. Malignancy.
    3. Typical HUS (Shiga toxin +).
    4. Known HIV infection.
    5. Identified drug exposure-related HUS.
    6. Infection-related HUS.
    7. Renal function status requiring chronic dialysis (defined as dialysis on a regular basis as renal replacement therapy).
    8. Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of sepsis defined as positive blood cultures
    within 7 days of the screening visit and not treated with antibiotics to which the
    organism is sensitive.
    9. Presence or suspicion of active and untreated systemic bacterial infection that, in the opinion of the Investigator confounds an accurate diagnosis of aHUS or impedes the ability to manage the aHUS disease.
    10. Pregnancy or lactation.
    11. Unresolved meningococcal disease.
    12. Known Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) or antiphospholipid antibody
    positivity or syndrome.
    13. Any medical or psychological condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could increase the patient’s risk by participating in the study or confound the outcome of the study.
    14. Patients receiving IVIg or Rituximab therapy.
    15. Patients receiving other immunosuppressive therapies such as steroids, mTOR
    inhibitors or FK506 inhibitors are excluded unless: [1] part of a post-transplant antirejection regime, [2] patient has confirmed anti-CFH antibody requiring
    immunosuppressive therapy and [3] dose of such medications have been unchanged
    for at least 4 weeks prior to the screening period.
    16. Patients receiving Erythrocyte stimulating agents (ESAs) unless already on a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to the screening period.
    17. Participation in any other investigational drug trial or exposure to other
    investigational agent, device, or procedures beginning 4 weeks prior to screening and throughout the entire trial.
