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   41189   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of TMC435 in combination with PegIFN╬▒-2a/RBV with respect to the proportion of subjects with chronic HCV-4 infection achieving SVR 12 weeks after planned end of treatment (SVR12) in the overall population as well as in the different subpopulations (treatment-naïve, previous relapsers and previous nonresponders).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    See section 2.1, page 31 and 32 of the Protocol
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    - Participants must have voluntarily signed an Informed Consent Form (ICF) indicating that they understand the purpose of and procedures required for the study and are willing to participate in the study. To participate in the optional pharmacogenomic component in this study (exploratory host genotyping), participants must have voluntarily signed a separate ICF for this component (where local regulations permit). Refusal to give consent for this component does not exclude a participant from participation in the core study.

    - Has any of the following laboratory abnormalities: a. Platelet count < 90,000/mm3 (blacks: < 75 000 cells/mm3); b. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 1500 cells/mm3 (Blacks: < 1000 cells/mm3); c. Hemoglobin < 12 g/dL for women and < 13 g/dL for men; d. Creatinine > 1.5 mg/dL; e. ALT and/or AST > 10 x upper limit of normal (ULN); f. Total serum bilirubin > 1.5 x ULN; g. Alpha-fetoprotein [AFP] > 50 ng/mL; h. Albumin serum concentration < 3.5 g/dL; i. Prothrombin time (PT) expressed as international normalized ratio (INR) > 1.5.
