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   41490   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6825   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    • To quantify and characterize the risk (cumulative incidence) of serious adverse drug reactions, including malignancies and serious infections
    • To assess time to resolution of lymphopenia among registry participants with persistent lymphopenia
    • To quantify and characterize the risk (cumulative incidence) of adverse events in the ‘Blood and Lymphatic System Disorders’ and ‘Neoplasms Benign, Malignant, and Unspecified’ System Organ Classes
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess pregnancy outcomes, including congenital malformations or other important health conditions in the offspring born to women exposed to oral cladribine
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    The registry target population includes all subjects who participated in Sponsor oral cladribine Phase I to III clinical trials in MS associated with a protocol approved prior to the time of submission of the marketing application and completed (last patient, last visit) after November 2008. This corresponds to five clinical trials (protocols number 25643, 26593, 27820, 27967 and 28821) and 2175 subjects.

    All subjects in the target population will be eligible for enrollment in the registry once their participation in the clinical trial has ended. The following inclusion criteria must be fulfilled:
    • Prior enrollment into selected clinical trials, regardless of randomization to either IMP or placebo, once participation in the clinical trial or in the clinical trial extension has ended
    • Written informed consent is given
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    The following reasons will exclude subjects from registry participation:

    • Subjects who cannot be reached by phone;
    • Subjects who are unable to answer the registry questionnaires and who do not have a next of kin or caregiver available to answer the registry questionnaires;
    • Subjects who – either during the lag interval or subsequently – enter an interventional study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    • Cumulative incidence of serious adverse drug reactions (SADRs), including malignancies and serious infections
    • Time to resolution of lymphopenia, among registry participants with persistent lymphopenia
    • Cumulative incidence of all adverse events (AEs) in the “Blood and Lymphatic System Disorders” System Organ Class (SOC) and in the “Neoplasms Benign, Malignant, and Unspecified” SOC
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The cumulative incidence of SADRs and of AEs in the ‘Blood and Lymphatic System Disorders’ and ‘Neoplasms Benign, Malignant, and Unspecified’ SOCs will be summarized, and time to resolution of persistent lymphopenia will be estimated using the life table methodology.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Pregnancy outcomes, including congenital malformations, spontaneous abortion, elective abortion, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, and other important health conditions in the offspring
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The proportion of women and the frequency of the pregnancy outcomes including congenital disorders and important health conditions in the offspring, will be descriptively summarized.
