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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Must give written informed consent and provide all authorizations required by local law (e.g., Protected Health Information [PHI])

    • Patients with high disease activity despite treatment with a beta-interferon defined as patients who have failed to respond to a full and adequate course of a beta-interferon. Patients must have had at least 1 relapse in the previous year while on therapy, and have at least 9 T2-hyperintense lesions in cranial MRI or at least 1 Gd-enhancing lesion.
    Or
    • Patients with rapidly evolving severe relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis defined as patients who have had 2 or more disabling relapses in one year and 1 or more Gd-enhancing lesions on brain MRI or significant increase in T2 lesions as compared to a previous MRI
    9. Must be stable in disability for at least 30 days prior to enrollment to the study
    10. Must be stable in symptomatic management of the disease, specifically spasticity, depression and fatigue for at least 30 days prior to enrollment to the study
    11. Must be considered by the Investigator to be free of signs and symptoms suggestive of PML based on medical history, physical examination, or laboratory testing.

    2. Considered by the Investigator to be immunocompromised, based on medical history, physical examination, or laboratory testing or due to prior immunosuppressive treatment
    3. History of, or available abnormal laboratory results indicative of, any significant cardiac, endocrinologic, hematologic, hepatic, immunologic, metabolic, urologic, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, dermatologic, psychiatric (including major depression), renal, and/or other major disease that would preclude the administration of a recombinant humanized antibody immunomodulating agent. The Investigator must re-review the subject’s medical fitness for participation and consider any diseases that would preclude treatment.
    4. History of malignancy (subjects with basal cell carcinoma that has been completely excised prior to study entry remain eligible)
    5. Known history of human immunodeficiency virus infection or hematological malignancy
    6. History of organ transplantation (including anti-rejection therapy)
    7. A clinically significant infectious illness (e.g., cellulitis, abscess, pneumonia, septicemia) within 30 days prior to the Screening Visit.

    Treatment History:
    8. Treatment with immunosuppressant medications (e.g., mitoxantrone, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, azathioprine, methotrexate) within 6 months prior to Screening

    Miscellaneous

    10. Women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or planning to become pregnant while on study
    11. Current enrollment in any other study treatment or disease study

    13. Subjects with walking impairment due to causes other than MS
    14. Other unspecified reasons that, in the opinion of the Investigator and/or Biogen Idec, make the subject unsuitable for enrollment into this study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of the study is the evolution of walking abilities as measured by MWD, EDSS, T25FW and T100T during the first year of therapy with natalizumab.
