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   43931   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Acute Ischemic Stroke
    Stroke is the most common neurologic disorder and is the third leading
    cause of death in developed countries, after myocardial infarction and
    cancer. Stroke is the second leading cause of neurological morbidity in
    the United States, Europe, and Japan. 67%- 81% of all stroke cases are
    ischemic strokes.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to compare the clinical therapeutic
    effects of intravenous DP-b99 at a dose of 1.0 mg/kg initiated within
    nine hours of stroke onset and administered daily over 2 hours for 4
    consecutive days versus placebo in subjects with moderately severe,
    likely hemispheric, acute ischemic stroke. The clinical outcome will be
    measured by the modified Rankin Scale at day 90.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are to compare the safety and
    tolerability, as well as post-stroke recovery at Day 90, in subjects
    treated with DP-b99 versus placebo
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    willing to provide written informed consent (IC) (as evidenced by
    signature on an informed consent document approved by an independent
    ethics committee (IEC), and agree to abide by the study restrictions and
    return for the required assessments. (In the event of incapacitated
    subjects, informed consent will be sought from a legally acceptable
    representative or by any other means as approved by the IRB or IEC).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Have an intracerebral or subarachnoid hemorrhage per
    screening/baseline computerized tomography (CT) scan or
    susceptibility-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    2. Be a candidate for either:
    a. thrombolytic therapy, or have been treated with thrombolytic therapy

    4. Have seizure(s) anytime from stroke onset to screening/baseline
    NIHSS evaluation
    5. Have neurological or non-neurological comorbidities that in the
    investigator's opinion may lead, independent of the current stroke, to
    further deterioration in the subject's neurological status during the trial
    period, or may render the study's neurological assessments inconclusive
    for the purpose of evaluating solely the stroke's effects (e.g., metabolic
    encephalopathies, hemiplegic migraine, multiple sclerosis, central
    nervous system tumor, convulsive disorder, monocular blindness)

    stage organ failure)
    9. Have rapid spontaneous improvement of neurological signs during
    screening/baseline assessments
