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   42559   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary Objective #1 Safety and Tolerability
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability based on clinical assessments of two doses of SSP-004184 when administered daily to patients with transfusional iron overload.

    Primary Objective # 2 Pharmacodynamic
    To identify a differential response between dose groups in liver iron content determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

    Primary Objective # 3
    To assess the safety and pharmacodynamic activity of FBS0701 when administered daily for up to 96 weeks.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary Objective #1 To assess the steady state pharmacokinetics of SSP-004184 in a sub-set of patients.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Willing and able to sign the approved informed consent.
    2. Age: 18-60 years old at Screening
    3. Transfusional iron overload due to: hereditary anemias such as sickle cell disease, β-thalassemia and Diamond-Blackfan anemia; acquired anemias such as Myelodysplastic Syndrome and other forms of bone marrow failure. Patients must also:
    a. Be transfusion-dependent (8 or more transfusions annually) and
    b. Require chronic treatment with deferoxamine, deferasirox, and/or deferiprone.
    4. Willing to discontinue all existing iron chelation therapies for a minimum period of one to five days prior to first dose of SSP-004184, the 24 week duration of the study and 1 week after last dose for a total of approximately 26 weeks.
    5. Serum ferritin > 500 ng/mL at Screening.
    6. Baseline (Day -14 to Day -7) liver iron concentration (LIC) between ≥3.5 and <30 mg iron per g (equivalent, dry weight, liver) determined by FerriScan® MRI.

    8. Mean of the previous three pre-transfusion hemoglobin concentrations ≥ 7.5 g/dL.
    9. Agrees to use an approved method of contraception from Screening and until 28 days after the last administration of the study drug. Agreed methods of contraception may include: condom; use of birth control pills, patches, implants or injections, diaphragm with vaginal spermicide, intrauterine device (IUD) and/or surgical sterilization (vasectomy or tubal ligation at least six months prior to dosing). Patients practicing abstinence must agree to use an approved method of contraception should they become sexually active during the study. A monthly pregnancy test will be performed on all female patients of child-bearing potential during the Screening and study period.

    Requalification Inclusion Criteria (entry into 24 & 48 week extended dosing):
    1.Willing to remain off all existing iron chelation therapies during FBS0701 dosing and 1 week after last dose for a total of approximately 50 - 98 weeks.
    2. Have a serum ferritin above the upper limit of normal (>350 ng/mL) in the last assessment before Week 24/48.
    3. Week 24/48 liver iron concentration (LIC) ≥2.0 mg iron per g (equivalent dry weight, liver) determined by FerriScan® MRI.
    4. Week 24/48 cardiac MRI T2* ≥10 milliseconds.
    5. Agree to continue to use an approved method of contraception until 28 days after the last administration of SSP-004184.
    6. In the opinion of the Principal Investigator, sufficient compliance with study drug dosing to support continued use of SSP-004184.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. As a result of medical review, physical examination or Screening investigations, the Principal Investigator considers the patient unfit for the study.

    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary Endpoint #1: Steady state pharmacokinetics (PK) will be evaluated at both Week 52 and Week 92 in a minimum of 6 patients.

    The concentrations of SSP-004184 will be measured in plasma from all patients using a validated assay method. Pharmacokinetic parameters will be tabulated and summarized. The concentration-time profiles for each subject and the mean concentration-time profile will be plotted.
    Pharmacokinetic parameters will be calculated for a minimum of 6 patients at both Week 52 and 92 using standard non-compartmental methods as described below.
    The following pharmacokinetic parameters for SSP-004184 will be determined from the time and plasma concentration data:
    AUC0–24: The area under the plasma concentration versus time curve will be calculated using the linear trapezoidal rule from the zero time point to the 24 hour time point plasma concentration.
    Cmax: The maximum observed plasma concentration will be obtained directly from the plasma concentration time profile.
    tmax: The time to maximum plasma concentration will be obtained by inspection. If the maximum plasma concentration occurs at more than one time point, the first is chosen.
    kel: The terminal elimination rate constant will be obtained from the slope of the line, fitted by linear least squares regression, through the terminal points of the log (base e) concentration-time profiles.
    t½: The half-life will be calculated by the equation t½ = 0.693/kel.
    CL/F: Apparent total plasma clearance of drug after oral administration.
    Vz/F: Apparent volume of distribution during terminal phase after oral administration.
    Ue: Amount excreted into urine.
    fe: Fraction of oral administered drug that is excreted unchanged in urine.
    CLr: Renal Clearance
    Descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation and coefficient of variation) will be calculated for all pharmacokinetic parameters.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Sixteen blood samples for pharmacokinetics (3-4 mL per sample) will be collected in total. At both Week 52 and 92, the following samples will be collected: pre-dose and 0.5, 1.0, 2, 3, 4, 8 and 24 hours post dose.
