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   42585   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7011   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    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 pilot study is to evaluate, by means of a specific cognitive test battery (Brief Repeatable Battery and Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System scale), the slowing/reduction of cognitive dysfunction progression in RRMS patients after 18 months of treatment with fingolimod in comparison with interferon beta 1b treatment, and to evaluate which test of the battery is the most sensitive in detecting differences between treatment groups.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate: how the effects on cognitive dysfunction progression are associated to the effect of slowing the brain volume reduction at MRI that DMDs might have in RRMS patients, in the brain as a whole and in specific brain regions. In a subgroup of patients/sites, if and to what extent optical nerve atrophy as assessed by the RNFL thickness at the Spectralis OCT is predictive of the atrophy of the relevant brain regions and of cognitive deterioration and to what extent this is affected by DMD treatment. If fingolimod has effects on depression in MS and how the effects of fingolimod and interferon beta 1b on brain atrophy, on cognitive dysfunction progression and on depression in MS are associated. Changes in quality of life, by mean of the MSQoL54 scale, upon initiation of treatment with fingolimod 0.5 mg. Changes in fatigue. Impact of cognitive symptoms on patient work and financial status, assistance required and social activity, by means of ESS.
