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   41231   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6758   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.1.2Term COPD
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To demonstrate that CHF 1535 twice daily is superior to Formoterol twice daily in terms of COPD exacerbations rate after 48 weeks of treatment and in terms of pulmonary function (change in pre-dose morning FEV1 from baseline to 12 weeks) in patients with severe COPD.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the efficacy of CHF 1535 in terms of pulmonary function parameters (change in pre-dose morning FEV1 from baseline to 12 weeks within treatment groups, change in pre-dose morning FEV1 from baseline to 48 weeks, morning pre-dose FEV1 and pre-dose FVC at all clinic visits , predose FEV1 over the treatment period (average), post-dose 2-hour FEV1), time to first COPD exacerbation, patient’s health status assessed by St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ), use of rescue medication and to evaluate the safety profile in terms of adverse events (AEs), adverse drug reactions (ADRs), blood haematology/chemistry and vital signs.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1.Male and female adults aged > 40 years, who have signed an Informed Consent form prior to initiation of any study-related procedure or written informed consent obtained by legal representative (when applicable). 2. Outpatients with severe COPD (stage III from GOLD guidelines 2008), characterized by shortness of breath, reduced exercise capacity, fatigue, and repeated exacerbations that almost always have an impact on patients’ quality of life and including: a) Smoking history of at least 10 pack years, both current and ex-smokers are eligible. Ex-smokers will be defined as subjects who quit smoking at least six months prior to screening. b) Post-bronchodilator 30% ≤ FEV1 < 50% of the predicted normal value. c) Post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC < 0.7. 3. A documented (e.g. patient’s records at the admitting hospital) history of at least one exacerbation in the previous 12 months. COPD exacerbation will be defined according to the following: “A sustained worsening of the patient’s condition (dyspnoea, cough and/or sputum production/purulence), from the stable state and beyond normal day-to-day variations, that is acute in onset and necessitates a change in regular medication in a patient with underlying COPD that includes prescriptions of systemic corticosteroids and/or antibiotics, or need for a visit to an emergency department or hospitalization” 4. A cooperative attitude and ability to be trained to use correctly the pMDI inhalers. 5. A cooperative attitude and ability to be trained to recognize worsening symptoms of COPD and record variations correctly in the digital platform (BlackBerry) pre-loaded with the EXACTPRO questionnaire.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Pregnant or lactating women. Females of childbearing potential without an efficient contraception UNLESS they meet the following definition of post-menopausal: 12 months of natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea or 6 months of spontaneous amenorrhea with serum FSH levels > 40 mIU/mL or are using one or more of the following acceptable methods of contraception: a) surgical sterilization (e.g., bilateral tubal ligation,hysterectomy); b) hormonal contraception(implantable, patch, oral,injectable);c) double-barrier methods (any double combination of: IUD,male or female condom, diaphragm, sponge, cervical cap).2. Diagnosis of asthma. 3. History of allergic rhinitis or other atopic disease (e.g. eczema).4. Onset of obstructive symptoms early in life (for example childhood).5. Unstable concurrent disease: e.g. uncontrolled hyperthyroidism, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus or other endocrine disease; significant hepatic impairment; significant renal impairment; significant non COPD pulmonary disease (e.g.tuberculosis, lung cancer or other); cardiovascular disease (e.g. uncontrolled coronary artery disease, uncontrolled hypertension); uncontrolled gastrointestinal disease (e.g. active peptic ulcer); neurological disease; uncontrolled haematological disease; uncontrolled autoimmune disorders, or other which may impact the feasibility of the results of the study according to investigator’s judgement. 6. Evidence of heart failure (NYHA class IV). 7. Clinically significant laboratory abnormalities indicating a significant or unstable concomitant disease which may impact the feasibility of the results of the study according to investigator’s judgement.8. Patients with serum potassium levels < 3.5 mEq/L (or 3.5 mmol/L).9. Patient with narrow-angle glaucoma.10. Patients with COPD exacerbations requiring systemic steroids in the 4 weeks prior to screening and during the 2 week run-in. 11. Patients requiring long term (at least 12 hours daily) oxygen therapy for chronic hypoxemia. 12. Patients treated with depot corticosteroids in the two months preceding the screening visit (Visit 1) and during the run-in period of the study. 13. Changes in dose, schedule, formulation or product of tiotropium within three months before screening visit (Visit 1) and during the run-in period. 14. Changes in dose, schedule, formulation or product of oral theophylline within two months of screening visit (Visit 1) and during the run-in period of the study. 15. Patients treated with long-acting antihistamines (e.g.astemizole, terfenadine) in the two months preceding the screening visit (Visit 1) and during the 50 week study period. 16. Patients treated with beta-blockers in the week preceding the screening visit (Visit 1) and during the 50 week study period. 17. Patients with allergy, sensitivity or intolerance to sympathomimetic drugs or corticosteroids or to any of the excipients contained in the study drugs. 18. Patients who have evidence of alcohol or drug abuse, not compliant with the study protocol or not compliant with the study treatments according to investigator’s judgement. 19. Participation in another clinical trial with an investigational drug in the four weeks preceding the screening visit (Visit 1). 20. Patients requiring chronic mechanical ventilation for COPD
