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   41232   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6757   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.

    Dementia (DAD) total score

    Safety Objective and Endpoints
    To assess the safety of multiple doses of bapineuzumab IV compared to placebo
    in subjects with mild to moderate AD.
     The incidence and severity of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs)
     Clinically important changes in safety assessment results (including, as
    appropriate, brain magnetic resonance imaging [MRIs], vital signs, weight,
    clinical laboratory tests, electrocardiograms [ECGs], and physical and
    neurological examinations).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To demonstrate the effect of multiple doses of bapineuzumab IV compared to placebo on time to first clinically meaningful deterioration in subjects with mild to moderate AD.

    To demonstrate the effect of multiple doses of bapineuzumab IV compared to placebo on subject dependence (amount of assistance needed) in subjects with mild to moderate AD.

    To demonstrate the effect of multiple doses of bapineuzumab IV compared to placebo on biomarkers that are indicative of disease pathophysiology in substudies of subjects with mild to moderate AD.

    To demonstrate divergence of effect (increasing separation with time compared
    with placebo) observed with multiple doses of bapineuzumab IV, in subjects with mild to moderate AD.
