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   37545   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6157   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
    To investigate the efficacy of ocrelizumab compared with placebo in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis, as measured by the time to onset of sustained disability progression over the treatment period, defined as anincrease in EDSS that is sustained for at least 12 weeks, based on regularly scheduled visits.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of ocrelizumab compared with placebo, as reflected bythe following: • Time to sustained disability progression over the treatment period, defined as an increase in EDSS that is sustained for at least 24 weeks • Change in timed 25-foot walk from baseline to Week 120 • Change in total volume of T2 lesions on MRI scans of the brain from baseline to week 120 • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ocrelizumab in patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis as compared with placebo.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Ability to provide written informed consent and to be compliant with the schedule of protocol assessments; 2. Diagnosis of PPMS in accordance with the revised McDonald criteria (2005); 3. Ages 18-50 years inclusive; 4. EDSS at screening from 3.0 to 6.5 points; 5. Score of ≥ 2.0 on the Functional Systems (FS) scale for the pyramidal system that is due to lower extremity findings; 6. Disease duration from the onset of MS symptoms: a. less than 15 years in patients with an EDSS at screening > 5.0 b. less than 10 years in patients with an EDSS at screening ≤ 5.0; 7. Documented history or presence at screening of at least one of the following laboratory findings in a CSF specimen [source documentation of laboratory results and method must be verified]: a. elevated IgG index b. one or more IgG oligoclonal bands detected by isoelectric focusing 8. For sexually active female and male patients of reproductive potential, use of reliable means of contraception as described below as a minimum (adherence to local requirements, if more stringent, is required*): • Two methods of contraception throughout the trial, including the active treatment phase AND for 48 weeks after the last dose of ocrelizumab, or until their B-cells have repleted, whichever is longer. Acceptable methods of contraception include one primary (e.g. systemic hormonal contraception or tubal ligation of the female partner, vasectomy of the male partner) AND one secondary barrier method (e.g. latex condoms, spermicide) OR a double barrier method (e.g. latex condom, intrauterine device, vaginal ring or pessary plus spermicide (e.g. foam, vaginal suppository, gel, cream)); 9. For patients of non reproductive potential (adherence to local requirements,if more stringent, is required*): • Women may be enrolled if postmenopausal (i.e. spontaneous amenorrhea for the past year confirmed by an FSH level greater than 40 mIU/mL) unless the patient is receiving a hormonal therapy for theirmenopause or surgically sterile (i.e. hysterectomy, complete bilateral oophorectomy); • Men may be enrolled if they are surgically sterile (castration). * Based on local Ethics Committees or National Competent Authority feedback additional requirements to assure contraception or to confirm menopause may be required (e.g. serum estradiol compatible with post-menopause status, longer duration of amenorrhea, higher level of FSH).

History or known presence of infectious causes of myelopathy (e.g. syphilis, Lyme disease, HTLV-1, herpes zoster myelopathy); e. History of genetically inherited progressive CNS degenerative disorder (e.g. hereditary paraparesis; MELAS [mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, stroke] syndrome); f. Neuromyelitis optica; g. History or known presence of systemic autoimmune disorders potentially causing progressive neurologic disease (e.g., lupus, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, Sj�gren’s syndrome, Beh�et’s disease); h. History or known presence of sarcoidosis; i. History of severe, clinically significant brain or spinal cord trauma (e.g., cerebral contusion, spinal cord compression); j. History of PML. Et al...
