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   41200   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Adult subjects of any ethnicity and either gender with Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus lesions of Subacute Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (SCLE), Discoid Lupus Erythematosus (DLE), Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) with DLE or SCLE lesions and without major organ involvement to investigate the efficacy of fumaric acid esters in the treatment of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus lesions.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    -To evaluate the therapeutic effect of fumaric acid esters (Fumaderm®) in the treatment of Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus with respect to proportion of responders based on the Revised Cutaneous Lupus Disease Area and Severity Index (RCLASI) activity score for skin lesions at baseline and after 24 weeks of treatment or at the latest assessment for patients who withdrew prematurely (Last Observation Carried Forward, LOCF).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    -To evaluate the proportion of responders after 12 weeks of treatment.
    -To evaluate the treatment effect of fumaric acid esters (Fumaderm®) with respect to change from baseline in the total RCLASI activity score for skin lesions in comparison to week 12 and to the last day of treatment.
    -Time from start of treatment to first responce (time to response).
    -To evaluate the proportion of failures of therapy after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment.
    -To evaluate the Patient Assessment of Global Improvement (PAGI) score as well as subject’s assessment of itching and pain assessed by a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) at baseline and after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment.
    -To evaluate the safety and tolerability aspects of fumaric acid esters (Fumaderm®) in patients with CLE for the body as a whole.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary efficacy outcome is the response rate at week 24 or at the latest assessment for patients who withdrew prematurely (Last Observation Carried Forward, LOCF). Response is defined as a reduction of 50% in the total RCLASI activity for skin lesions, compared to the baseline value ("RCLASI 50").
