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   36827   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6080   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    to determine the efficacy of telaprevir administered as 750 mg every 8 hours (q8h) in combination with pegylated interferon (Peg-IFN)-alfa-2a and ribavirin (RBV) in genotype 1 chronic HCV infected liver transplant patients as measured by sustained virologic response (SVR12planned). SVR12planned is defined as
    having an undetectable HCV ribonucleic acid (RNA) level 12 weeks after the last planned dose of study medication.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - to compare the SVR rate from this study to a historical control SVR rate derived from the literature in subjects treated with Peg-IFN and RBV;
    - to evaluate HCV RNA levels and responses over time, on treatment and during follow-up;
    - to evaluate changes in liver graft biopsy histology comparing the last pre-treatment biopsy to the 24-week post-treatment biopsy;
    - to evaluate safety and tolerability of telaprevir in combination with Peg-IFN-alfa-2a, RBV, and tacrolimus (TAC) or cyclosporin A (CsA);
    - to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of telaprevir and concentrations of TAC or CsA;
    - to evaluate dose titration requirements for TAC and CsA;
    - to evaluate the incidence of liver graft rejection;
    - to evaluate relapse rates and virologic failure rates;
    - to evaluate changes from baseline in the amino acid sequence of HCV NS3-4A protease.
