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   37767   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6190   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).

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the study is to determine whether armodafinil treatment, at a dosage of 150 mg/day, is more effective than placebo treatment as adjunctive therapy to mood stabilizers for treatment of adults with major depression associated with bipolar I disorder. Efficacy will be assessed by the mean change from baseline in the total score from the 30-Item Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology–Clinician-Rated (IDS-C30).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To evaluate the efficacy of armodafinil treatment compared with placebo treatment as adjunctive therapy for adults who are experiencing a major depressive episode
    associated with bipolar I disorder.
    • To evaluate the change from baseline in the CGI-S rating for depression at weeks 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 8, or last postbaseline observation.
    • To evaluate the efficacy of armodafinil treatment compared with placebo treatment on patient functioning as assessed by the GAF Scale scores at weeks 4 and 8, or last postbaseline observation.
    • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of armodafinil treatment.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    (a) The patient has a diagnosis of bipolar I disorder according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) criteria as determined by the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (Clinical Trials) (SCID-CT) and is currently experiencing a major depressive episode.
    (b) The investigator has established, by medical record documentation or by history from the patient and at least 1 reliable informant, that the patient has had at least 1 previous manic or mixed episode, which resulted in functional impairment and was treated (or should have been treated)
    with a mood stabilizer or antipsychotic medication. (NOTE: A manic or mixed episode that was induced by an antidepressant or stimulant [prescribed or not] does not satisfy this criterion.)
    (c) The patient has had no more than 6 mood episodes in the last year.
    (d) The patient’s current major depressive episode must have started no less than 2 weeks and no more than 12 months prior to the screening visit. The current depressive episode must have begun after the patient’s current mood stabilizer regime began. Date of onset of the current depressive episode
    must be at least 8 weeks after resolution of any previous mood episode (ie, depressive, manic, hypomanic, or mixed episode).
    (e) Inclusion criterion (e) was replaced by (e1).
    (e1) The patient must have been taking 1 (or 2) of the following protocol-allowed mood stabilizers:

    • aripiprazole
    • olanzapine
    • quetiapine
    • risperidone
    • ziprasidone (only if taken in combination with lithium, valproic acid, or lamotrigine)
    The following criteria must also be met:
    • The mood stabilizer(s) must have been taken a minimum 4 weeks before the onset of the major depressive episode and still be taken at the time of the screening visit at dose or blood level considered appropriate for maintenance therapy by the patient’s physician.
    • The patient must continue to take the same mood stabilizer(s) during the screening period; no mood stabilizer may be added during the screening period.
    • The mood stabilizer(s) must be taken for a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the baseline visit.
    • The dosage of the mood stabilizer(s) must be stable for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the baseline visit. Minimum required dosages and plasma concentrations, if applicable, and the lengths of time for these minimum requirements (4 or 8 weeks depending on the medication) are provided in the protocol.
    • The mood stabilizer(s) must be taken in an oral formulation, with the exception of risperidone, which can be either in an oral or long-acting injection formulation.
    • The patient may be taking 2 protocol-allowed mood stabilizers only if 1 of the drugs is lithium, valproic acid, or lamotrigine.
    (f) The patient has been on a stable dosage of all other permitted medications (with the exception of medication to be used on an as-needed basis) for 2 weeks prior to the baseline visit.
    (g) The patient has a score of 13 or more on the QIDS-C16 at the screening and baseline visits.
    (h) The patient has a CGI-S rating (for depression) of 4 (moderately ill) or higher at the screening visit and at the baseline visit.
    (i) The patient has a YMRS total score of 10 or less at the screening and baseline visits.
    (j) The patient has a YMRS score of 0 or 1 on items 1 through 3 at the screening and baseline visits.
    (k) Written informed consent is obtained.
    (l) The patient is a man or woman 18 through 65 years of age.
    (m) The patient is in good health (except for diagnosis of bipolar I disorder) as judged by the investigator, on the basis of medical and psychiatric history, medical examination, ECG, serum chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    (a) The patient has any Axis I disorder apart from bipolar I disorder that was the primary focus of treatment within 6 months of the screening visit or during the screening period.
    (b) The patient has psychotic symptoms or has had psychosis within 4 weeks of the screening visit or during the screening period.
    (c) The patient has current active suicidal ideation, is at imminent risk of self-harm, or has a history of significant suicidal ideation or suicide attempt at any time in the past that causes concern at present; or, at any time during the screening period or at baseline has a score of 2 or more for item 18 on the IDS-C30.
