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   41467   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6815   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To estimate the optimal dose of bumetanide for use in neonatal seizures not responding to phenobarbitone (standard therapy). This optimum dose will be that which achieves the maximum seizure reduction with an acceptable safety profile.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To assess the feasibility of neonatal seizure treatment with bumetanide in babies with HIE and seizures that are not responding to phenobarbitone alone

    • To assess whether bumetanide reduces the need for rescue medication.

    • To assess bumetanide as a diuretic in babies with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Male or female term baby with gestational age of 37-43 weeks and postnatal age <48 hours

    One or more of the following:
    o APGAR score < 5 at 5 mins.
    o Umbilical cord or first arterial blood sample pH < 7.1 or base deficit >16 mmol/L.
    o Postnatal resuscitation still required 10 minutes after birth

    Clinical evolving encephalopathy

    Received one dose of standard anticonvulsive therapy (phenobarbitone, 20mg/kg) for clinical or electrographic seizures.

    Written informed consent of parent or guardian.

    EEG monitoring has commenced within the first 48 hours of birth.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Suspected or confirmed brain malformation, inborn error of metabolism, genetic syndrome, or major congenital malformation

    Congenital (in utero) infection (TORCH).

    Babies who have received diuretics such as furosemide or bumetanide in routine clinical management within the last 24 hours.

    Total serum bilirubin > 15 mg/dl (255 micromol/l) at inclusion.

    On any other anticonvulsive medication other than phenobarbitone or bolus of midazolam / pentobarbitone for intubation.

    Anuria/renal failure defined as serum creatinine > 200 micromol/l.

    Severe electrolyte depletion (Na <120 mmol/L, K <3.0 mmol/L)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Stage 1

    The optimal dose is defined as achieving effective seizure reduction:
    - Defined as reduction of electrographic seizure burden by >80% within 12 hours after bumetanide administration over a 2 hour epoch compared to a 2 hour epoch prior to Bumetanide administration.
    - No need for rescue AED within 48 hours

    Safety: acceptable safety profile
    - Absence of Suspected Unexpected Serious Adverse Reactions (SUSARs)
    - Serious Adverse Reactions (SAR) which are at least probably related in <10%
    - Clinically acceptable frequency of adverse reactions
    * Severe hypokalaemia (<2.8mmol/l) and/or ECG changes in <10%
    * Severe dehydration (weight loss >10% over 24 hours with hypotension) in <10%

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    The intervention will only be administered according to the protocol and for the times stated. The IMP is intended for acute seizures in neonates and therefore long term provision of this treatment is not applicable in this case.

    If a baby subsequently develops secondary epilepsy due to birth hypoxia other anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) would be indicated (not bumetanide).
