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   40626   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6627   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    • Confirm that NVA237 50µg o.d. (delivered via a SDDPI) vs. placebo significantly increases trough FEV1 (defined as mean evaluation at 23 h 15 min and 23h 45min post dose) following 12 weeks of treatment in patients with moderate to severe COPD (GOLD Guidelines 2008)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Evaluate the effect of NVA237 (50µg o.d.) vs. placebo on breathlessness measured using the Transition Dyspnea Index (TDI) after 26 weeks treatment.
    • Evaluate the effect of NVA237 (50µg o.d.) vs. placebo on health status by measuring the total score of the St George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) after 26 weeks treatment.

    Other secondary objectives are outlined in the Protocol.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female adults aged ≥40 years, who have signed an Informed Consent Form prior to initiation of any study-related procedure.

    2. Women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP), defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, including women whose career, lifestyle, or sexual orientation precludes intercourse with a male partner and women whose partners have been sterilized by vasectomy or other means, 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 have past 6 weeks from surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without hysterectomy OR are using one or more of the following acceptable methods of contraception:
    • surgical sterilization (e.g., bilateral tubal ligation),
    • double barrier method (diaphragm plus condom)
    • hormonal contraception (implantable, patch, oral, IM), and copper coated IUD), if accepted by local regulatory authority and ethics committee.
    • At the discretion of the investigator, total abstinence is acceptable in cases where the age, career, lifestyle, or sexual orientation of the patient ensures compliance; if accepted by local regulatory authority and ethics committee.

    3. Patients requiring long term oxygen therapy (> 15 h a day) on a daily basis for chronic hypoxemia, or who have been hospitalized for an exacerbation of their airways disease in the 6 weeks prior to Visit 1 or between Visit 1 (day -21) and Visit 3 (day 1).
    4. Patients who have had a lower respiratory tract infection within 6 weeks prior to Visit 1 (day -21). Patients who develop a lower respiratory tract infection or COPD exacerbation during the screening period (up to Visit 3 (day 1)) will not be eligible, but will be permitted to be re-screened at a later date (at least 6 weeks after the resolution of the lower respiratory tract infection).
    5. Patients who, in the judgment of the investigator or the responsible Novartis personnel, have a clinically relevant laboratory abnormality or a clinically significant condition such as (but not limited to):
    • unstable ischemic heart disease, left ventricular failure, history of myocardial infarction, arrhythmia (excluding chronic stable AF)
    • history of malignancy of any organ system (including lung cancer), treated or untreated, within the past 5 years whether or not there is evidence of local recurrence or metastases, with the exception of localized basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
    • narrow-angle glaucoma
    • symptomatic prostatic hyperplasia or bladder-neck obstruction or moderate to severe renal impairment or urinary retention
    • any condition which might compromise patient safety or compliance, interfere with evaluation, or preclude completion of the study
    6. Patients with any history of asthma indicated by (but not limited to) a blood eosinophil count > 600/mm3 (at visit 1) or onset of symptoms prior to age 40 years.
    7. Patients with known history and diagnosis of ά-1 antitrypsin deficiency
    8. Patients involved in the active phase of a supervised pulmonary rehabilitation programme
