Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43977   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Investigate whether early valganciclovir treatment of children with SNHL of ≥ 20 dB, unilateral or bilateral, and a confirmed congenital CMV infection can prevent deterioration of the hearing loss at 1 year follow-up.
    Onderzoeken of vroege behandeling met valganciclovir bij kinderen met gehoorverlies van ≥ 20 dB, unilateraal of bilateraal, en een congenitale CMV infectie de verergering van het gehoorverlies bij 1 jaar follow-up kan tegegaan.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) Investigate whether early valganciclovir treatment of children with SNHL of ≥ 20 dB, unilateral or bilateral, and a confirmed congenital CMV infection can prevent cognitive and motor retardation. Communicative and speech development will be extensively assessed.
    2) Investigate whether early valganciclovir treatment of children with SNHL of ≥ 20 dB, unilateral or bilateral, and a confirmed congenital CMV infection reduces the CMV viral load in urine and blood samples 6 weeks treatment and one week and one year after completion of treatment. At 1 year follow-up solely the urine sample will be investigated for the viral load.
    1) Onderzoeken of vroege behandeling met valganciclovir bij kinderen met gehoorverlies van ≥ 20 dB, unilateraal of bilateraal, en een congenitale CMV infectie cognitieven en bewegings retardatie kan voorkomen. Communicatieve en spraak ontwikkeling worden getest bij 1 jaar follow-up.
    2) Onderzoeken of vroege behandeling met valganciclovir bij kinderen met gehoorverlies van ≥ 20 dB, unilateraal of bilateraal, en een congenitale CMV infectie de CMV virale load zal verlagen in urine en bloed dat wekelijks wordt afgenomen gedurende de 7 weken na inclusie, en 1 jaar na inclusie.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Infants with congenital CMV infection, and hearing loss (≥20 dB, in one or both ears).

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Indications for symptomatic congenital CMV infection based on diagnostics carried out prior to the inclusion of the child in the trial.
    • In case during the house visit the presence of a symptomatic CMV infection is doubted, inclusion will be discussed. Depending on the medical history taking, physical examination and laboratory tests inclusion will be decided upon.
    • Treatment with other antiviral agents or immunoglobulins.
    • Leucopenia < 0,5 x 10*9/L (blood sample tested at t=0).
    • Indicaties voor een symptomatische congenitale CMV infectie gebaseerd op diagnostiek uitgevoerd voor inclusie van het kind in de studie.
    • In geval dat tijdens het huisbezoek een symptomatische CMV infectie mogelijk wordt geacht zal inclusie worden besproken. Afhankelijk van de medische geschiedenis, lichamelijk onderzoek en labuitslagen zal er worden besloten of inclusie mogelijk is.
    • Behandeling met andere antiviral middelen of immunoglobulines.
    • Leucopenie < 0,5 x 10*9/L (bloed getest bij t=0).
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the status of the sensorineural hearing loss expressed in dB, in children with congenital CMV at 1 year follow-up.
    Het primaire eindpunt is de status van het gehoorverlies (in dB) bij kinderen met congenitaal CMV bij 1 jaar follow-up.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The hearing loss will be evaluated at 1 year follow-up.
    Het gehoorverleis wordt onderzocht bij 1 jaar follow-up.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary endpoint is the development of the infants.
    The tertiary endpoint is the viral load (in dried blood spots, blood and urine) during 7 weeks after inclusion and at 1 year follow-up.
    Het secundaire eindpunt is de ontwikkeling van de kinderen.
    Het tertiaire eindpunt is de viral load (in hielprikkaart, bloed en urine) in de eerste 7 weken na inclusie en bij 1 jaar follow-up.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The development of the infants will be tested at 1 year follow-up.
    The viral load will be determined at inclusion and weekly in urine during the first 7 weeks after inclusion (total 8 moments). For treated infants it will be determined at inclusion and weekly in blood samples (total 8 moments). For untreated infants it will be determined twice in blood (at inclusion and in week 6). At 1 year follow-up the viral load will be determined in urine for all infants.
    De ontwikkeling van de kinderen wordt bij 1 jaar follow-up getest.
    De virale load wordt bij inclusie en wekelijks in de urine getest in de eerste 7 weken na inclusie (totaal 8 momenten). Voor behandelde kinderen wordt de virale load bij inclusie en wekelijks beoordeeld in bloed (totaal 8 momenten). Voor onbehandelde kinderen wordt de virale load tweemaal bepaald in het bloed (bij inclusie en in week 6).

    None other than expected normal treatment. All subjects will have been treated at the start of the trial. Treatment of congenital CMV after 1 year of age has not been shown to be effective. Treatment of hearing loss will be continued as standard care in the Netherlands.
    It is possible that follow-up after 1 year will be provided. However, this is beyond this specific trial.
    Niet afwijkend van normale behandeling voor gehoorverlies. Alle proefpersonen zijn behandeld in het begin van de studie. Er bestaat geen bewijs voor effectiviteit voor de behandeling van congenitaal CMV na de leeftijd van 1 jaar. Behandeling van gehoorverlies zal voortduren zoals in reguliere zorg.
    Het is mogelijk dat follow-up na 1 jaar ook zal worden aangeboden. Dit is echter buiten deze studie om.
