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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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 compare the gastrointestinal (GI) tolerability of deferasirox administered before and after meals in patients with iron overload due to multiple blood transfusions, on established deferasirox therapy. The primary endpoint is the difference in mean individual Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index (GIQLI)score change from baseline to end of study in the before-meals arm versus after-meals arm.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) To describe the gastrointestinal tolerability of deferasirox administered before and after meals in patients with transfusional iron overload naive to deferasirox therapy. The secondary endpoint is the difference in mean individual GIQLI score change from baseline to 1 month and 2 months of before meal versus after meal deferasirox administration. 2) To compare steady state pharmacokinetics profile characteristics (AUCss, Cmax ss, Cmin ss) following 1 month of deferasirox administered either before or after meals in a crossover design in patients with established deferasirox therapy. where AUCss is Area Under the Curve at steady state (a measure of bioavailability of drug and drug clearance) Cmax ss is the maximum concentration of drug at steady state Cmin ss is the minimum concentration of drug at steady state Exploratory: 1) To investigate the relationship between plasma level of the iron-drug complex and plasma iron parameters.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Four weeks after treatment 1 in the non-naive cohort Four weeks after crossover day 1 in the non-naive cohort
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1) Difference between mean follow-up ( 1 month and 2 months) vs baseline changes of GIQLI per arm in naive cohort 2) Difference of the mean GSRS score changes in both arms of the established cohort and the naive cohort 3) Difference of the mean SF-36 score changes in both arms of the established cohort and the naive cohort 4) Arm difference of geometric mean steady state Cmin at visit 3 and visit 4 in the cross-over group 5) Arm difference of geometric mean AUC and Cmax at Visit 3 and visit 4 in cross-over group 6) Arm difference of geometric mean steady-state Cmin at Visit 3 for all patients (after 1 month of treatment) 7)Effect of food on systemic exposure of deferasirox as assessed by Pharmacokinetics approach. Pooled PK data from all arms will be analysed with a population PK model and appropriate covariates will be examined for clinical and statistical relevance.
