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   42572   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7010   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Main inclusion criteria to be assessed at screening:
    1. Subject is a male out-patient ≥18 years of age (no upper age limit).
    2. Subject has a history of constipation, i.e. reports an average of ≤2
    spontaneous bowel movements (SBM)/week that result in a feeling of
    complete evacuation (SCBM) and one or more of the following for at
    least 6 months before the selection visit:
    a) Very hard (little balls) and/or hard stools for at least a quarter of the
    b) Sensation of incomplete evacuation following for at least a quarter of
    c) Straining at defecation for at least a quarter of the time.
    The above criteria are only applicable for SBMs, i.e. BMs not preceded
    within a period of 24 hours by the intake of a laxative agent or by the
    use of an enema. Subjects who never have SBMs are considered to be
    constipated and are eligible for the trial.
    3. Subject agrees to stop his current laxative treatment and is willing to
    use rescue.
    Main inclusion criteria to be assessed at baseline (randomisation):
    1. During the run-in period, the subject reports an average of ≤2
    SBM/week that result in a feeling of complete evacuation (SCBM).* This
    includes subjects who never have SBMs.
    2. Subject stopped his/her laxative treatment and did not use rescue
    mediation on more than 75% of days during the run-in period.*
    medication according to the rescue rule [Dulcolax® (bisacodyl)/
    3. Subject did not use disallowed medication during the run-in period.
    * Excluding the first 7 days for subjects using medication influencing
    bowel habit or excluding the days between screening and the 7 days
    following the colonoscopy/sigmoidoscopy for those who had a
    colonoscopy/sigmoidoscopy after screening.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Subjects in whom constipation is thought to be drug-induced.
    2. Subjects using any disallowed medication.
    3. Subjects suffering from secondary causes of chronic constipation.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary parameter is the proportion (%) of subjects with an
    average of ≥3 SCBMs/week (i.e. a responder) over the 12-week doubleblind treatment period.
    If e-diary data are available for less than 28 days, the subject will be
    considered a non-responder for the primary analysis.
    The Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test controlling for the randomisation
    stratification factors (country and CBM) will be used to compare
    treatment groups.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The key evaluation period will be the 24-week double-blind trreatment
    phase. This endpoint will also be evaluated in periods of 4 weeks and per week of treatment
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Proportion (%) of subjects with an average increase of ≥1
    (SC)BM/week compared to the run-in period, over the entire treatment
    • The average number of (SC)BM/week and change from baseline
    • Number of (SC)BMs per week: descriptive statistics and distribution in
    categories as 0, (0;1), [1;2), [2;3), [3;->)
    • Consistency per (SC)BM: descriptive statistics of 7-point score and %
    (SC)BM with normal consistency (Type 3 or 4 on the Bristol stool scale)
    • Straining per (SC)BM: descriptive statistics of 5-point score and %
    (SC)BM with no straining and with severe/very severe straining
    • The proportion (%) of subjects with ≥3 (SC)BM/week and with ≥50%
    of (SC)BM with Type 3 or 4 on the Bristol stool scale and mild or
    moderate straining
    • Sensation of complete evacuation per (S)BM: % (S)BM with sensation
    of complete evacuation
    • Average time to first (SC)BM after the first intake of the trial
    medication (Day 1) and after the intake on Day 29 (Week 4)
    • Average number of bisacodyl (Dulcolax®) tablets taken per week and
    the average number of days with bisacodyl (Dulcolax®) use per week
    • Subject's global assessment on severity of constipation (5-point
    scales; 0=none, 4=very severe)
    • Subject's global assessment on efficacy of treatment (5-point scales;
    0=none, 4=extremely effective)
    • Subject's lower GI symptom assessment by the PAC-SYM total score,
    subscale scores (stool symptoms, abdominal symptoms and rectal
    symptoms) and individual item scores (5 point scales; 0=none, 4=very
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    A number of secondary parameters will be derived from the e-diary and
    evaluated over similar periods. The primary parameter and the below
    secondary parameters in Category A will be evaluated over 12-week and
    4 week periods, and per individual week of treatment.
    Secondary parameters in category B will be summarised per scheduled
    visits and endpoint (last observation carried forward, LOCF), for both
    observed values and changes from baseline.
