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   42312   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6968   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 is to assess the clinical efficacy of siltuximab,
    demonstrated by a reduction in RBC transfusions to treat the anemia of
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To demonstrate symptomatic improvement of subjects treated with siltuximab compared with the placebo group
    • To compare the number of RBC units transfused to treat the anemia of MDS, and the proportion of subjects treated with siltuximab who do not require a RBC transfusion to treat the anemia of MDS, from Week 5 to Week 12, compared with the placebo group
    • To assess the change in hemoglobin among MDS subjects treated with siltuximab compared with the placebo group
    • To compare disease progression (proportion of bone marrow blasts and cytogenetic change) for subjects treated with siltuximab compared with the placebo group
    • To assess the safety profile of siltuximab and RBC transfusions among subjects with Low- or Intermediate-1 (INT-1)-risk MDS
    • To assess the pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and antibodies to siltuximab (immunogenicity) in MDS subjects
    •See protocol for additional objectives
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. At least 18 years of age (or the legal age of consent in the jurisdiction in which the study is taking place)

    classification, with an IPSS score 0, 0.5, or 1.0, indicating Low- or INT-1-
    risk disease. Subjects with 5q- or PDGFR gene mutations are eligible if
    they are intolerant to or have failed prior specific therapy (eg,
    lenalidomide and imatinib mesylate).
    3. Documented RBC transfusion of at least 2 units of RBC for the
    treatment of the anemia of MDS in the 8 weeks preceding the start of the
    Screening Period.

    stainable iron in the bone marrow or a serum ferritin of > 100 ng/mL
    5. ECOG performance status score of 0 to 2
    6. Symptomatic anemia (defined by a score > 0 on the NCA-SS).
    7. Women of childbearing potential must agree to use adequate birth
    control measures during the study and for 3 months after receiving the
    last dose of study agent, and have a negative serum or urine beta human
    chorionic gonadotropin (beta hCG) pregnancy test at screening. Men
    must agree to use a double barrier method of birth control and to not
    donate sperm during the study and for 3 months after receiving the last
    dose of study agent
    8.Be willing and able to adhere to the prohibitions and restrictions
    specified in this protocol
    9.Sign (or their legally acceptable representatives must sign) an
    informed consent document indicating that they understand the purpose
    of and procedures required for the study and are willing to participate in
    the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Had treatment with ESAs, androgens, hypomethylating agents,
    immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs), or other agents targeting IL-6 or its
    receptor within 4 weeks of randomization
    2.Any condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would make
    participation not be in the best interest (eg, compromise the well-being)
    of the subject or that could prevent, limit, or confound the protocolspecified
    assessments (eg, has a history of clinically significant,
    uncontrolled disease of the pulmonary, cardiovascular, endocrine,
    neurologic, gastrointestinal, or genitourinary systems that is not
    attributable to MDS). Subjects with Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia
    (CMML) are to be excluded from the study.
    3.Causes other than MDS contributing to anemia, such as Vitamin B12 or
    folate deficiency, bleeding, hemolysis, hemoglobinopathy, or chronic
    renal failure
    4.Known unmanageable allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to
    monoclonal antibodies or to murine, chimeric, or human proteins or their
    5.A history of seropositivity for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV),
    hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV) (Note: HBV antibodypositivity
    is not a reason for exclusion from the study)
    6.Received an investigational drug (including investigational vaccines)
    or used an invasive investigational medical device within 30 days or 5
    half lives before randomization or is currently enrolled in an
    investigational study
    7.Had a modification of an effective preexisting therapy for the explicit
    purpose of entering the study.
    8.Is a woman who is pregnant, or breast-feeding, or planning to become
    pregnant or is a man who plans to father a child while enrolled in this
    study or within 12 weeks after the last dose of study agent
    9.Had hospitalization for infection or major surgery, (eg, requiring
    general anesthesia) within 2 weeks before randomization or will not

    have fully recovered from surgery.
    Note: subjects with planned surgical procedures to be conducted under
    local anesthesia may participate
    10.Been vaccinated with live, attenuated vaccines within 4 weeks of
    11.Has clinically significant laboratory abnormalities:
    •Platelets < 20 x 109/L
    •Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <=20 mL/min
    •Aspartate aminotransferase (AST)/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≥
    2.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
    •Bilirubin > 2.5 x ULN
    •Alkaline phosphatase ≥ 3 x ULN
    12.Is an employee of the investigator or study site, with direct
    involvement in the proposed study or other studies under the direction
    of that investigator or study site, as well as family members of the
    employees or the investigator
    NOTE: Investigators should ensure that all study enrollment criteria
    have been met at screening. If a subject's status (including laboratory
    results) changes after screening but before the first dose of study agent
    is given such that they now meet an exclusion criterion, then they should
    be excluded from participation in the study.
