Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43843   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.2Term Diabetic foot ulcer
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To demonstrate a superior wound closure rate of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) of neuropathic origin after 12 weeks topical daily application of trafermin 0.01% spray compared with placebo, in addition to best local care. Wound closure is defined as 100% reepithelialization of the target DFU, without drainage.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To determine the time to reach complete wound closure.
    • To determine absolute and relative wound area regression and wound edge migration based on planimetry tracing.
    • To determine the occurrence rate of clinical infection on the target DFU.
    • To evaluate the safety of trafermin 0.01% spray.
    • To determine the rate of amputations on the target DFU.
    • To determine the frequency of local mechanical or surgical procedures.
    • To determine the maintenance of wound closure/time to re-opening up to 3 months after observed reepithelialization.
    • To determine DFU new occurrence/recurrence up to 12 months.
    • To explore biomarkers from target wound fluid (selected centers only).
    • To assess high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs CRP) level variations.
    • To explore the correlation of absolute and relative wound area regression and wound edge migration based on photography in comparison with planimetry tracing.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Active Charcot foot, or inactive Charcot foot, if the target DFU cannot be properly offloaded.
    2. Ulcers of non-neuropathic origin (e.g., rheumatoid, radiation-related, vasculitis-related ulcers).

    11. Females who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or who are of childbearing potential and not practicing a medically approved method of contraception.
    12. Concomitant treatment with high dose oral or parenteral corticosteroids, defined as a daily dose of at least 7.5 mg prednisone or equivalent.
    13. Participation in another clinical study within the previous 3 months.
    14. Current participation in another clinical study with any drug or device.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Wound closure is defined as observed 100% reepithelialization of the target DFU, without drainage, confirmed by a second medical evaluation after two weeks.
    The wound closure rate is the number of patients achieving wound closure at the specified timepoint during the 12-week double blind treatment period.
