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   37293   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6131   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.

    7. Former or current use of any AED, except for the use of a single AED for a maximum duration of 2 weeks before Visit 1.
    8. Previous regular use of ESL or CBZ (previous use as acute treatment for seizures in an emergency situation is not an exclusion criterion).
    9. Using mono-amine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tricyclic antidepressants, nefazodone, isoniazid, or protease inhibitors or any other anti-retroviral agents (e.g. efavirez) that may raise the levels of CBZ-CR.
    10. Known hypersensitivity to carboxamide derivatives or tricyclic antidepressants.
    11. History of uncontrolled psychiatric illness or mood disorder requiring electro-convulsive or drug therapy within the previous 6 months, a history of suicide attempt, schizophrenia, chronic treatment with benzodiazepines (except short-acting benzodiazepines) or barbiturates.
    12. Judged clinically to have a suicidal risk in the opinion of the investigator based upon a clinical interview and the Columbia Suicide-Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS).
    13. History of alcohol, drug, or medication abuse within the last 2 years.
    14. Uncontrolled cardiac (including atrioventricular block and other clinically significant electrocardiographic abnormalities), renal, hepatic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, metabolic, hematological, or oncology disorder.
    15. History of bone marrow depression.
    16. History of hepatic porphyrias (e.g. acute intermittent porphyria, variegate porphyria, porphyria cutanea tarda).
    17. Relevant clinical laboratory abnormalities (e.g. sodium <130 mmol/L, alanine or aspartate transaminases >2 x the upper limit of normal, white blood cell count <3000 cells/mm3) (measured at Visit 1).
    18. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <60 mL/min/1.73 m2 (measured at Visit 1).
    19. Subjects of Asian ancestry who test positive for the presence of the HLA-B*1502 allele.
    20. Pregnancy or lactating.
    21. Participation in other drug clinical trial within the last 2 months or having received an IMP within 5 half-lives of that IMP, whichever is longer.
    22. Any other condition or circumstance that, in the opinion of the investigator, could compromise the subject’s ability to comply with the study protocol.
    Visit A1 (Day 1; Randomization and start of double-blind treatment period)
    23. Former or current use of any AED *, except for the use of a single AED for a maximum duration of 2 weeks before Visit 1 and with a drug-free period of at least 5 days before Visit A1. Benzodiazepines are allowed for an epileptic indication and as rescue medication during the ≥5-day drug-free period.
    24. Using prohibited medication.
    25. Pregnancy.
    26. Any other condition or circumstance that, in the opinion of the investigator, could compromise the subject’s ability to comply with the study protocol.

    *For clarification, an acute treatment for a seizure during the study (e.g. in the emergency room) is allowed and is not considered a deviation.

    E.8.8 Definition of the end of the trial and justification where it is not the last visit of the last subject undergoing the trial
    The end of the study is defined as the last subject’s last visit, which is

    • EOT for all subjects who were on treatment with double-blind CBZ-CR and are now participating in the open-label extension study, and
    • last EPV for all subjects on treatment with double-blind ESL who plan on participating in the open-label extension study.

    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 2010-06-10. Yes
    F.3.3.2Women of child-bearing potential using contraception Yes
    F.3.3.3Pregnant women No

    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)
    At the last EPV, investigators will determine if it is in the subject’s best interest and if the subject is willing to continue in the open-label extension study, which will be described in a separate protocol, or to discontinue with the IMP.
    In case of discontinuation, subjects will be treated according to local Standard practice.
