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   37700   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6177   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
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of 3 fixed doses of Lu AA21004 (5, 10 and 20 mg QD) compared with placebo as assessed by the Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) after 8 weeks of treatment in subjects with MDD.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of 3 fixed doses of Lu AA21004 QD compared with placebo based on other parameters of efficacy after 8 weeks of treatment.
    To evaluate the effect of 3 fixed doses of Lu AA21004 QD on subject functioning compared with placebo after 8 weeks of treatment.
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of Lu AA21004 compared with placebo during the course of treatment.

    Additional Objectives:
    To evaluate the efficacy of 3 fixed doses of Lu AA21004 QD compared with placebo during the 8-week treatment period.
    To evaluate the effect of 3 fixed doses of Lu AA21004 QD on anxiety symptoms compared with placebo after 8 weeks of treatment.
    To evaluate potential discontinuation symptoms after the end of the treatment period.
    To assess the treatment effect (Lu AA21004 or placebo) on suicidal ideation and behavior.
    To analyze plasma concentrations of Lu AA21004 and its metabolites Lu AA34443 and Lu AA39835 in subjects with MDD for population pharmacokinetic analysis.
