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   39229   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6426   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 assess the safety of nebulised RPL554 at 2 single inhaled doses of 0.036 mg/kg (12X) and 0.072 mg/kg (24X) in allergic asthmatics using standard safety measures with intensive monitoring of any potential cardiovascular effects.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) To investigate the onset, magnitude and duration of RPL554’s bronchodilator effects in terms of maximal increase from baseline (pre-bronchodilator) Forced Expiratory Volume in the first second (FEV1) and the duration of the bronchodilator response (in FEV1) over time.
    2) To investigate RPL554’s pharmacokinetics including the relationship between pharmacokinetics and bronchodilation; and the relationship between pharmacokinetics and any adverse events observed over time.
