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   36391   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5995   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
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of three SC treatment regimens of CAT-354 on asthma control at Study Day 92 versus placebo in adults with uncontrolled, moderate-to-severe, persistent asthma.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) Evaluate the effect on the safety profile in this subject population;
    2) Evaluate the effect on the time to asthma control through Study Days 92 and 169;
    3) Evaluate the effect on the proportion of subjects achieving a change from baseline in ACQ score consistent with well controlled and partly controlled asthma
    4) Evaluate the effect on the time to first asthma exacerbation
    5) Evaluate the effect on asthma exacerbation rates and severity (hospitalizations)
    6) Evaluate the effect on the variability of airflow obstruction using the parameters of forced expiratory volume within 1 second (FEV1) and peak expiratory flow (PEF)
    7) Evaluate the effect on a subject’s requirement for concomitant controller or rescue medications and daily asthma symptoms
    8) Evaluate the effect on the patient reported outcomes including health-related quality of life using the AQLQ(S) and the patient global impression of change
    9) PK and immunogenicity of SC CAT-354.
