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   39183   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6421   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To raise awareness and enhance the diagnosis of patients with chronic low back pain(CLBP) with a neuropathic pain component who are refractory to standard analgesic therapy and/or one treatment for neuropathic pain in a primary care setting and assess the effectiveness and tolerability of pregabalin in this group of patients.
    To assess patient satisfaction with treatment with pregabalin in patients with CLBP with a neuropathic pain component who are refractory to standard analgesic therapy and/or one treatment for neuropathic pain in a primary care setting.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the time to achieve a clinically meaningful analgesic response with pregabalin by determining the time to onset of 30% pain reduction.
    To assess the impact of treatment with pregabalin on: anxiety and depression; sleep quality; absenteeism and labour productivity; physical functioning with respect to daily activities
    To assess the correlation between the observed changes in two different measures of neuropathic pain.
    To note the proportion of patients treated with pregabalin with a 30% reduction in pain from baseline at study endpoint and the proportion of patients with a 50% reduction in pain over the same period.
    To characterize the utility of screening tools to support the identification of patients with neuropathic chronic low back pain.
    To characterize the adverse events for patients taking 150 mg pregabalin at night as a single dose, either for one week prior to dose escalation or as continued after the option to escalate dose following one week in the study.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document indicating that the subject (or a legally acceptable representative) has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study.
    Adult patients (aged 18 years or over) who are willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and other study procedures.
    Patients must have low back pain with a neuropathic pain component between 3 months and 12 months duration prior to entering the study.
    Patients must have a score of at least 19 on the PainDetect questionnaire and at least 4 on the Standardized Evaluation of Pain (StEP) scale at baseline.
    Patients must have a mean pain numerical rating scale (NRS) score of 4 or more during the one week screening period (based on patients having completed at least 4 daily pain diaries within the last 7 days).
    Patients must be taking stable pain medication (for 30 days).
    Patients must have failed to respond to standard analgesic therapy (eg, non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs [NSAIDs]) and/or one treatment for neuropathic pain (eg, tricyclics, serotonin-norepinephrine re-uptake inhibitors [SNRIs]) prior to entering the study).
    Female subjects of childbearing potential must not be pregnant or lactating at screening and must have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening (women post-menopausal for <2 years will also require a urine pregnancy test at screening).
    Female subjects of childbearing potential must be using effective contraception since the last date of their menses and continue to do so during the study period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects who are investigational site staff members or subjects who are Pfizer employees directly involved in the conduct of the trial.
    Participation in other studies within 30 days before the current study begins and/or during study participation.
    Other severe acute or chronic medical condition (eg, cancer) or psychiatric condition including suicidal behaviour or active suicidal ideation) or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation or investigational product administration or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the subject inappropriate for entry into this study.
    A diagnosis of depression or a Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) score of
    > 15 on the depression sub-scale only.
    Patients with a history of renal impairment or who have reduced renal function at baseline (Creatinine Clearance < 60 mL/min).
    Patients who have previously taken pregabalin or gabapentin less than 6 months prior to entering the study.
    Patients who have undergone previous surgery for back pain.
    Patients who are using high doses of opioid medication (morphine > 60 mg per day).
    Patients with a contraindication to receiving pregabalin as per the EU Summary of
    Product Characteristics (SmPC).
    Pregnant or lactating women, or women of childbearing potential including women less than two years post-menopausal not using an effective method of contraception.
    Patients scheduled to have planned or elective surgery during the course of the study.
