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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The major secondary objective will be to compare the efficacy of infliximab with that of placebo in the prevention of endoscopic recurrence of CD through Week 76, defined as a Rutgeerts score ≥ i2 either at the anastomosis or elsewhere in the gastrointestinal [GI] tract, in patients who are at an increased risk of active CD recurrence following ileocolonic resection.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    a. Have no history of latent or active TB prior to screening. An exception is made for patients with a history of latent TB and documentation of having completed appropriate treatment for latent TB within 3 years prior to the first administration of study agent. It is the responsibility of the investigator to verify the adequacy of previous antituberculous treatment and provide appropriate documentation.
    b. Have no signs or symptoms suggestive of active TB upon medical history and/or physical examination.
    c.

    5.Patients must also be at an increased risk of recurrence of active CD, as defined by at least ONE of the following:
    a.The qualifying surgery was the patient’s second intra-abdominal operation for CD in the past 10 years
    b.The qualifying surgery was the patient’s third (or more) intra-abdominal operation for CD
    c.The qualifying surgery was performed for a penetrating complication of CD (i.e. an intra-abdominal abscess, internal fistula, sinus tracts or intestinal perforation)
    d.The patient has any history of perianal fistulizing CD provided that this has not been active in the 3 months prior to study start
    e.The patient is a cigarette smoker (defined as currently smoking and having smoked an average of at least 10 cigarettes a day for the past year or more) and has been unable or unwilling to quit smoking despite counseling to stop smoking

    6.Patients must meet the following criteria with respect to prior treatment with an anti-TNF agent:
    a.Started an anti-TNF agent for the first time within 1 year prior to surgery and received the last dose of the anti-TNF agent within 4 months or less of having surgery

    7.Are able to adhere to the following concomitant medication requirements:
    a.Patients who are receiving treatment with an immunomodulator (AZA, 6-MP, or MTX) prior to surgery may continue on this medication but must be on a stable dose by 4 weeks after their surgery and should remain on that dose for the duration of the study, unless discontinuation or a dose decrease is warranted for safety or tolerability reasons. Patients who are not taking an immunomodulator prior to surgery should not initiate an immunomodulator after surgery or at any time during the study. Patients may have discontinued immunomodulators at any time prior to the start of the study.
    b.Patients taking 5-ASA compounds prior to surgery may continue on these medications but must be on a stable dose by 4 weeks after their surgery and should remain on that dose for the duration of the study, unless discontinuation or a dose decrease is warranted for safety or tolerability reasons. Patients who are not taking 5-ASA compounds prior to surgery should not initiate 5-ASA compounds after surgery or at any time during the study. Patients may have discontinued 5-ASA compounds at any time prior to the start of the study.
    d.Antibiotics for the treatment of CD are not allowed in this study. Antibiotics for other indications must be discontinued by Week 2 of the study. Subsequent use of antibiotics is permitted only for reasons other than CD (e.g., urinary tract infections), and then only for a maximum course of 14 days per course of antibiotics.
