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   40165   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6574   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.

    A.3Full title of the trial
    A phase 3, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group, multi-center, multi-national study for the evaluation of efficacy and safety of (LMW) heparin/edoxaban versus (LMW) heparin/warfarin in subjects with symptomatic deep-vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism
    A.3.1Title of the trial for lay people, in easily understood, i.e. non-technical, language
    Late development study which compares the effectiveness and safety of a not yet approved drug called edoxaban versus a widely-used and approved drug called warfarin in patients suffering from blood clots in legs and/or in lungs. The study is double-blind (that is when neither the patient nor the investigator know which of the 2 drugs the patient is receiving) and is being conducted in many countries around the world

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Reduction of the risk of symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolic complications in patients with acute symptomatic deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE)
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    DVT is a condition when a blood clot develops in a vein or veins of the legs and decreases blood flow. PE occurs when a clot gets dislodged and travels up to the pulmonary artery where it gets stuck

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate whether initial (Low Molecular Weight) heparin followed by edoxaban only ([LMW] heparin/edoxaban) is non-inferior to initial (LMW) heparin overlapping with warfarin, followed by warfarin only ([LMW] heparin/warfarin) in the treatment of subjects with acute symptomatic VTE for the prevention of symptomatic recurrent VTE during the 12-month study period
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. To compare (LMW) heparin/edoxaban to (LMW) heparin/warfarin with regard to clinically relevant bleeding (i.e., major or clinically relevant nonmajor bleeding) occurring during treatment or within 3 days of interrupting or stopping study drug

    2. To compare (LMW) heparin/edoxaban to (LMW) heparin/warfarin with regard to the composite clinical outcome of symptomatic recurrent DVT, non-fatal symptomatic recurrent PE, and all-cause mortality during the 12-month study period
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Sub-study Addendum A - Health Economics Study, 08 December 2009, Version 1.0

    Primary objective - To evaluate the medical resource utilization associated with edoxaban and warfarin therapies over the duration of observation of the HOKUSAI VTE study.

    "Accuracy of Two Risk Stratification Rules in Patients with Clincally Stable Pulmonary Embolism" sub-study - Memo #008, 05 August 2010

    To compare the 3 rules for the early risk stratification of these patients.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female subjects older than the minimum legal adult age (country specific)

    2. Acute symptomatic proximal DVT and/or symptomatic PE confirmed at the site by appropriate diagnostic imaging

    3. Able to provide written informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Thrombectomy, insertion of a caval filter, or use of a fibrinolytic agent to treat the current episode of DVT and/or PE

    2. Indication for warfarin other than DVT and/or PE

    3. More than 48 hours pre-treatment with therapeutic dosages of anticoagulant treatment (LMWH, UFH, and fondapiranux per local labeling) or more than a single dose of a VKA prior to randomization to treat the current episode

    4. Treatment with any investigational drug within 30 days prior to randomization

    5. Calculated CrCL < 30 mL/min

    6. Significant liver disease (e.g., acute hepatitis, chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis) or alanine transaminase (ALT) ≥ 2 times the upper limit of normal (ULN), or total bilirubin (TBL) ³ 1.5 times the ULN

    7. Patients with active cancer for whom long term treatment with LMW(heparin) is anticipated

    17. Systemic use of the strong P-gp inhibitors erythromycin, azithromycin, clarithromycin, ketoconazole or itraconazole at the time of randomization; subsequent use is permitted

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is symptomatic recurrent VTE (i.e., the composite of DVT, non-fatal PE, and fatal PE). CEC adjudication results will be the basis for the final analyses

    The primary safety endpoint is clinically relevant bleeding (i.e., major or clinically relevant non-major bleeding) occuring during treatment or within 3 days after interrupting or stopping study drug. Bleeding definitions were adopted from Büller, HR, et al (NEJM; 2007; 357:1094-1104). Adjudicated results will be the basis for the final analyses
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Throughout the participation in the study. Information on possible
    endpoints will also be collected during 1 month follow-up after treatment termination.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary efficacy endpoint is the composite clinical outcome of symptomatic recurrent DVT, non-fatal symptomatic recurrent PE, and all-cause mortality during the 12-month study period.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Throughout the participation in the study. Information on possible
    endpoints will also be collected during 1 month follow-up after treatment termination.

    E.8.8 Definition of the end of the trial and justification where it is not the last visit of the last subject undergoing the trial
    As per protocol: Based on the EOR date a global End of Treatment
    [EOT] date will be established that ensures a minimum of 6 months of treatment for the last subject(s) randomized to study. All subjects must permanently discontinue study treatment on or before the EOT date. A global Final Study Visit [FSV] date will be set one month following the EOT date. All subjects must complete their follow-up safety visit and permanently discontinue study on or before the FSV date.
