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   40665   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6637   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 early efficacy of TCZ at week 16 defined as DAS28 remission (<2.6), after 4 courses of 8mg/kg TCZ treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess: - the efficacy of RTX treatment in terms of improvement in commonly used RA outcome measures (DAS28 remission (<2.6), EULAR responses, ACR responses) at week 32 in patients not having responded to 4 courses of TCZ. The efficacy of TCZ treatment (EULAR responses especially late clinical remission, ACR responses) at week 32 in DMARD-IR patients.The effects of TCZ and RTX treatment on patient-reported outcomes.
    ?Safety will be assessed via reporting of incidences of adverse events and serious adverse events and the number and percentage of patients who discontinue study treatment due to AEs and SAEs.
    ?To correlate DAS28 response with B-cell panels.
