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   38463   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6315   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.

If taking NSAIDs or narcotic analgesics, must be on stable dose for at least 2 weeks prior to screening and until they have completed the Week 16 study visit. 11. Low potency topical corticosteroids (Appendix M or locally-available equivalent) will be allowed as background therapy for treatment of psoriasis on the face, axillae and groin in accordance with the manufacturers’ suggested usage during the course of the study. Subjects with scalp psoriasis will be permitted to use coal tar shampoo and/or salicylic acid scalp preparations on scalp lesions. A non-medicated skin emollient (eg, Eucerin cream) will also be permitted for body lesions only. Subjects must not use these treatments within 24 hours prior to the clinic visit. 12. Meet the following laboratory criteria: - White blood cell count ≥ 3000/mm^3 (≥ 3.0 x 10^9/L) and < 14,000/mm^3 (< 14 x 10^9/L) - Platelet count ≥100,000/mm^3 (≥ 100 x 10^9/L) - Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 mg/dL (≤ 132.6 μmol/L) - AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2 X upper limit of normal (ULN) - Total bilirubin ≤ 2 mg/dL (≤ 34 μmol/L) - Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL (≥ 5.6 mmol/L) - Hemoglobin A1c ≤ 9.0% 13. Male subjects (including those who have had a vasectomy) who engage in activity in which conception is possible must use barrier contraception (latex condom or any nonlatex condom NOT made out of natural [animal] membrane [eg, polyurethane]) while on study medication and for a least 28 days after the last dose of study medication. 14. Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative pregnancy test at Screening and Baseline. FCBP who engage in activity in which conception is possible must use 2 forms of contraception while on study medication and for at least 28 days after taking the last dose of study medication: one highly effective form (ie, hormonal, intrauterine device [IUD], tubal ligation, vasectomized partner) and one additional form (latex condom or any nonlatex condom NOT made out of natural [animal] membrane [for example polyurethane], diaphragm with spermicide, cervical cap with spermicide, or contraceptive sponge with spermicide). If one highly effective form of contraception cannot be used, then 2 forms of barrier contraception must be used, ie, latex condom or any nonlatex condom NOT made out of natural (animal) membrane (for example polyurethane) with either of the following: diaphragm with spermicide, certival cap with spermicide, or contraceptive sponge with spermicide.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. History of clinically significant (as determined by the Investigator) cardiac, endocrinologic, pulmonary, neurologic, psychiatric, hepatic, renal, hematologic, immunologic disease, or other major uncontrolled disease. 2. Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities that places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study. 3. Clinically significant abnormality on 12-lead ECG at Screening. 4. Pregnant or breast feeding. 5. History of allergy to any component of the investigational product (IP). 6.

An additional lateral view is strongly recommended but not required. 12. Active substance abuse or a history of substance abuse within 6 months prior to Screening. 13. Bacterial infections requiring treatment with oral or injectable antibiotics, or significant viral or fungal infections, within 4 weeks of Screening. Any treatment for such infections must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to Screening. 14. Malignancy or history of malignancy (except for treated [ie, cured] basal-cell or squamous cell in situ skin carcinomas and treated [ie, cured] cervical intraepithelial neoplasia [CIN] or carcinoma in situ of the cervix). 15. Major surgery (including joint surgery) within 8 weeks prior to screening or planned major surgery within 6 months following randomization. 16.
