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   37293   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6131   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
    The primary objective of the study is to confirm the clinical efficacy of epratuzumab in the treatment of subjects with moderate to severe general SLE despite standard of care treatments (ie, corticosteroids, and potentially antimalarials and immunosuppressants) continued from Baseline.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of the study are to assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of epratuzumab, and to assess the steroid-sparing effects of epratuzumab treatment.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    The sub-study is included in this protocol as exploratory objective: exploratory analyses of genomic, genetic, and proteomic biomarkers may also be performed.
    Where local regulations permit, additional blood samples will be collected from consenting subjects at specific time points and stored at -80°C for up to 20 years to allow for potential, exploratory analyses of genomic, genetic, and proteomic biomarkers relevant to the inflammatory and immune response processes. The nature and format of these tentative analyses will be determined when the results of the main study are made available.
