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   41470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6815   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) .

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate aripirazol (Abilify) as an augmenting strategy of sertraline treatment for children and adolescents
    with OCD who are treatment refractory to evidence based treatments.
    Status as treatment refractory is defined by lack of adequate response to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
    followed by an adequate trial of Sertraline plus continued CBT-support.
    Arpiprazol has unique pharmacological properties due to dopamine stabilising and mixed Serotonin agonistic and
    blocking actions (depending on 5-HT receptor subtype) that will augment the effect of sertraline on OCD.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To identify predictors, moderators and mediators of good and non- or partial Aripiprazole plus Sertraline
    response in treatment refractory pediatric OCD-patients.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Molecular genetic aspects of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and OCD treatment response: Objective:
    to identify genetic markers that (1) are characteristic of pediatric OCD patients (trio-design); (2) identify
    genetic markers that are characteristic of CBT responders and CBT non- or partial responders; (3) identify
    genetic markers that are characteristic of Sertraline responders respectively non-responders to CBT non- or
    partial responders.

    Backgroundsfactors and outcome in pediatric OCD: Objective to study various correlates and possible
    backgroundsfactors, e.g. psychosocial and psychiatric co-morbidity and OCD symptom patterns etc. in
    pediatric OCD. Also, evaluating various scales and interviews used in pediatric OCD.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder according to DSM IV of moderate-severe type in patients aged 7-17. Severity
    as defined by Children's Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (CY-BOCS) Scores of 16 or above. All comorbidities
    are allowed except as defined below. All patients included in step 3, involving Aripirazole have failed
    an adequate trial of CBT for 14 sessions (in step 1 and if applicable in step 2) and a subsequent adequate trial of
    sertraline, i.e. that CY-BOCS scores are still 16 or above.
    Thus, the patient has OCD that is treatment refractory to evidence based treatments, which is the inclusion
    criterion for step 3 of the NordLOTS
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    patient has been treated with CBT or Sertraline in the 6 months preceding inclusion in step 1 for OCD. Other
    psychiatric disorder with higher treatment priority (e.g. acute psychosis, suicidality in major depression, severe
    Anorexia nervosa). Mental retardation, Autism and Asperger's syndrome. Patient and/or parent does not
    understand or can speak the language. Comorbidity with ADHD, bipolar disorder etc are allowed if the patient is
    stabilised on the appropriate drug for at least 3 months.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    CYBOCS scores at 8 weeks and 3 months after inclusion in step 3. Responder status as good is defined as the
    patient having reduced their CYBOCS scores to 11-15 points. Excellent response is defined as CY-BOCS scores
    of 10 or below. Responders will be followed up for up to 36 months (from inclusion in step 1) (at +12, +24
    and +36 months counted from inclusion in step 1) using the CY-BOCS and the stability of the treatment gains
    can thus be established. We will as well investigate the possibility to terminate the medication without relapse
    (Aripiprazole first followed by sertraline) using the same criteria. The Clinical Global Impression (CGI) and
    Clinical global Improvement (CGIimp) will be used at the same timepoints.

    Dr Pål Zeiner M.D., Ph.D. , BUP, Drammen, Norway is the trial monitor with full access to data and powers to
    stop the trial. He is not part of the NordLOTS study or NordLOTS steering group.
    If the trial monitor finds that the treatment (i.e. Aripiprazole) in step 3 leads to inadequate outcome and that no
    sub-groups have markedly better response the monitor is to stop the trial.

    F.3.3.1Women of childbearing potential not using contraception For clinical trials recorded in the database before the 10th March 2011 this question read: "Women of childbearing potential" and did not include the words "not using contraception". An answer of yes could have included women of child bearing potential whether or not they would be using contraception. The answer should therefore be understood in that context. This trial was recorded in the database on 2011-02-01. Yes

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    Patients who are still ill will be referred to the local child psychiatric unit. Following CBT and SSRI treatments,
    and following that augmenting sertraline with Aripiprazole the patients within the design of the study will be
    fully treatment refractory/non-responding patients. It is to be presumed that further augmentation strategies will
    have to be used (e.g. other atypical neuroleptics or clomipramine treatment) supplementing CBT and various
    family support methods.
