Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43935   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7309   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the proportion of subjects who achieve two consecutive ≥ 30% reductions from baseline in iPTH levels during the 12-week double-blind portion of the study regardless of CKD stage.

    The primary safety variable is the incidence of clinically meaningful hypercalcemia (2 consecutive serum calcium values > 10.2 mg/dL [2.55 mmol/L]).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Efficacy endpoint evaluated at 12 weeks. Safety assessments will be evaluated throughout the study, including Follow-Up.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary efficacy variables include:
    1. The proportion of subjects who achieve a final iPTH value within K/DOQI iPTH target ranges (Table 6) will be evaluated within each CKD stage.
    2. The mean change in iPTH from baseline to each post baseline visit (Weeks 2, 4, 8 and 12).
    3. The proportion of subjects who achieve a final value within the applicable K/DOQI target ranges for calcium and for phosphorus. K/DOQI recommends serum calcium is maintained within age appropriate normal ranges and serum phosphorus is maintained at or above the age appropriate lower limits and no higher than the age appropriate upper limits.
    4. The mean change in FMV UACR from baseline to each post baseline visit (Weeks 4, 8 and 12).

    The following safety evaluations will be performed during the PK study: adverse event monitoring and vital signs, physical examinations, ECGs and laboratory tests assessments. In Part II safety will also be assessed through SAE and adverse event monitoring, changes from baseline in chemistry, hematology and urinary laboratory variables, changes from baseline in vital signs and physical examinations and progressive changes in kidney function observed via changes in eGFR in conjunction with cystatin C levels and subjects requiring dialysis.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Efficacy endpoints evaluated at weeks 2, 4, 8 and 12. Safety assessments will be evaluated throughout the study, including Follow-Up.
