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   42869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To assess the effects of Ivabradine on post-ischaemic stunning induced by exercise stress in patients with stable coronary artery disease and exercise-inducible ischaemia
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study treatment could be prematurely discontinued if it was not tolerated, no longer appropriate or considered as contra-indicated. For the sake of safety, only patients presenting with a positive exercise at moderate or high workload were selected in the study, thus patients with low-effort inducible ischemia were not included.
    Background therapy
    Previous cardiovascular medication were maintained except previous anti-angina treatments. Short acting nitrates were authorized during the study.

    Recruitment details
    The study was carried out under the supervision of Prof. P.G. Camici in a unique centre at Istituto Scientifico Universitario San Raffaele, Milan, Italy

    Screening details
    Study population was male and female patients with proven Coronary Artery Disease, Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction ≥ 40%, sinus rhythm, resting heart rate ≥ 70 bpm and exercise-inducible myocardial ischaemia at moderate to high workload and subsequent stunning. 26 patients were screened; 25 patients pre-selected and 15 patients were included.

    Pre-assignment subject non-completion reasons
    Reason: Number of subjects
    non compliance to selection criteria: 11
    [1] - The number of subjects reported to have started the pre-assignment period are not the same as the worldwide number enrolled in the trial. It is expected that these numbers will be the same.
    Justification: 11 patients showed non-compliance to selection criteria

    Primary: Post-ischaemic myocardial stunning

    End point title
    Post-ischaemic myocardial stunning [1]
    End point description
    By using bi-dimensional echocardiography at rest and at peak of exercise and during the recovery phase, a strain value (%) was measured for 16 segments of the LV myocardial wall. The segments showing post-ischaemic myocardial stunning at baseline were assessed for efficacy results.
    End point type
    End point timeframe
    The primary endpoint was the post-ischaemic myocardial stunning evaluating changes (%) in regional myocardial wall motion from rest to peak exercise and to recovery time points (3 min, 10 min, 20 min). Change from baseline to W2 was provided.
    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: only descriptive analyses were done
