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   35512   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5839   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Safety endpoints will include the incidence of adverse events (AEs), SAEs, and infusion-associated reactions (IARs); changes from Baseline in 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) and clinical laboratory tests (hematology, serum chemistry [including lipid panel], and urinalysis); changes in vital signs during and after infusion, relative to pre-infusion values; physical examination findings; use of concomitant medications/therapies; characterization of anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) including ADA titer by time point, peak ADA titer, and time to peak ADA titer. The effect of ADAs on the safety of sebelipase alfa will also be explored, in particular, the relationship between ADA-positive subjects and the incidence of IARs. Functional and overall development in subjects ≤ 6 years of age will be assessed, as determined by Denver II scores.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Screening will occur within 45 days. Eligible patients will receive intravenous infusions of sebelipase alfa for up to 96 weeks, an expanded treatment period of a maximum of up to 48 weeks. All patients will receive a starting dose of 1 mg·kg-1 qow. Dose increases (up to 3 mg·kg-1 qw) will be permitted during the treatment period. The follow-up period will be 4 weeks from the last infusion of sebelipase alfa.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary outcome measures include the following changes or percent change from Baseline to the end of the treatment period: (1) decrease in Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT); (2) decrease in Aspartate Aminotransferase
    (AST); (3) decrease in LDL-C; (4) decrease in non-HDL-C; (5) increase in HDL-C; (6) decrease in triglyceride, (7) decrease in Child-Pugh status, (8) decrease in United Kingdom Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (UK-ELD) score. In the subset of subjects for whom these assessments are performed: (9) improvement in hepatic histology; (10) decrease in liver and spleen volume by MRI; and (11) decrease in liver fat fraction by MRI. The effect of sebelipase alfa on growth parameters in pediatric subjects with manifestations of impaired growth will be measured. Additional clinical, biochemical and hematological abnormalities will also be evaluated, including (1) total and conjugated bilirubin, (2) gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT), (3) markers of macrophage activation, (4) high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, (4) hemoglobin level, and (5) platelet count.
    Exploratory measures of additional clinical manifestations of LALD not previously well characterized in the literature will include changes in functional assessments outcomes.
    Pharmacokinetics
    PK parameters (in subjects for whom these assessments are performed) will be reported, as the data permit, and may include serum clearance and apparent volume of distribution estimates along with secondary parameters of area under the concentration-time curve, maximum observed concentration, time to maximum observed concentration, and terminal elimination half-life (t1/2). The effect of ADAs on sebelipase alfa PK will also be explored.
    PK analysis will be discussed in the statistical analysis plan (SAP).
    Health-Related Quality of Life Exploratory HRQOL measures will include changes from Baseline in scores for the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue scale, Chronic Liver Disease Questionnaire, or Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL™) Generic Core Scales, as appropriate to the age of the subject.
    Pharmacodynamics Exploratory disease-related biomarkers, which may be identified based on emerging information from the sebelipase alfa development program and scientific literature, will be analyzed by changes or percent changes over time.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Screening will occur within 45 days. Eligible patients will receive intravenous infusions of sebelipase alfa for up to 96 weeks. All patients will receive a starting dose of 1 mg·kg-1 qow. Dose increases (up to 3 mg·kg-1 qw) will be permitted during the treatment period. The follow-up period will be at least 4 weeks from the last infusion of sebelipase alfa.
