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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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.

    5) currently treated with 1 or 2 AEDs (any except oxcarbazepine) in a stable dosage regimen for at least 4 weeks prior to Screening. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is to be considered as an AED (i.e., only one concomitant AED is allowed in patients with VNS);
    6) willing and able to comply with all trial requirements, in the judgement of the investigator.
    At Visit 2 (start of ESL treatment), patient must have:
    7) at least 2 partial-onset seizures (documented in the diary) during the 8-week Baseline Period.
    8) satisfactorily complied with the study requirements during the Baseline Period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    At Visit 1 (Screening), patients must not be / have:
    1. only simple partial seizures with no motor symptomatology (classified as A2-4 according to the International Classification of Epileptic Seizures);
    2. primarily generalised seizures;
    3. known progressive neurological disorders (progressive brain disease, epilepsy secondary to progressive central nervous system lesion) and progressive dementia;
    4. occurrence of seizures too close to count accurately;
    5. history of status epilepticus or cluster seizures (i.e., 3 or more seizures within 30 minutes) within the 3 months prior to Screening;
    6. seizures of non-epileptic origin;
    7. major psychiatric disorders;
    8. history of suicide attempt;
    9. currently treated with oxcarbazepine;
    10. previous use of ESL or participation in a clinical study with ESL;
    11. known hypersensitivity to other carboxamide derivatives (e.g., oxcarbazepine, carbamazepine) or to any of the excipients;
    12. uncontrolled cardiac, renal, hepatic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, metabolic, haematological or oncology disorder, hypo – or hyper thyroidism of any type;
    13. second or third-degree atrioventricular blockade or any clinically significant abnormality in the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) as determined by the investigator;
    14. relevant clinical laboratory abnormalities as determined by the investigator (e.g., plasma sodium <130 mmol/L, alanine or aspartate aminotransferases >2.0 times above the upper limit of the normal range, or white blood cell count <3,000 cells/mm3);
    15. calculated creatinine clearance values < 30 mL/min at screening;
    16. any other condition or circumstance that, in the opinion of the investigator, may compromise the patient’s ability to comply with the study protocol;
    17. received an investigational drug (or a medical device) within 3 months of Screening or is currently participating in another trial of an investigational drug (or medical device) trial.
    18. GERMANY only: an MMSE Total Score (raw score) of 21 points or less
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is safety assessed by incidence of adverse events, clinical laboratory safety tests, ECG, blood pressure and heart rate.
