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   37220   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6123   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC)
    CSC is an acute idiopathic chorioretinopathy. While the majority of cases is characterized by a self-limited course, chronic CSC is seen in up to one third of patients. Case reports and first results of small case series have recently been published about the use of intravitreal bevacizumab with promising results. It is not known if Lucentis (Ranibizumab) may yield same or better results in CSC and prove superior to observation alone.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    CSC leads to fluid accumulation below the central parts of the retina, the so called macula. This leads to a decrease in vision.
    It affects people between 30 and 50 years of age, predominantly men.
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Eye Diseases [C11]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To test the safety and efficacy of intravitreal injections with Lucentis (Ranibizumab) in acute onset CSC.
    Primary outcome measure is the resolution of neurosensory detachment as measured my optic coherence tomography six months after study inclusion.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary endpoint is the change of best spectacle-corrected visual acuity as measured by ETDRS vison charts at baseline and six months after inclusion into the study
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patient age >18 a, <60 a

    Diagnosis of CSC by optical coherence tomography and fluorenscence angiography

    Symptom duration less than three months

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Present ocular, intraocular, or periocular infection
    Recurrent CSC
    St.p. intraocular surgery within the past year
    St.p. Argon laser coagulation of the retina
    St.p. Photodynamic therapy
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Resolution of neurosensory detachment in OCT scan six months after study inclusion.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Monthly after study inclusion for six months
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Change in best corrected visual acuity (ETDRS) between first measurement at the time of inclusion and last measurement six months after study inclusion
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Monthly after study inclusion for six months
