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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.

FF/VI will be administered once-daily (QD) via the Novel Dry Powder Inhaler (NDPI).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objective is to compare the incidence of serious adverse events of
    pneumonia during the study of fluticasone furoate (FF)/vilanterol (VI) Inhalation Powder (FF 100mcg/VI 25mcg or FF 200mcg/VI 25mcg) with usual asthma maintenance therapy over twelve months.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects eligible for enrolment in the study must meet all of the following criteria:
    1. Informed consent: Subjects must be able to provide informed consent, have their consent signed and dated. Subjects must be able to complete the electronic subject questionnaires or allow a proxy to do so on their behalf.
    2. Type of subject: Subjects with documented GP diagnosis of asthma as their primary respiratory disease.
    3. Current Anti-Asthma Therapy: All subjects must be prescribed maintenance therapy and receiving ICS with or without LABA (either a fixed combination or via separate inhalers), and for at least 4 weeks prior to Visit 2.
    • Other background asthma medication such as anti-leukotrienes are permitted
    4. All subjects on ICS monotherapy or ICS/LABA combination (this can be a fixed dose combination or an ICS alone or LABA alone in separate inhalers) must have had symptoms in the past week prior to Visit 2. Symptoms are defined by daytime symptoms more than twice per week, use of short-acting beta2-agonist bronchodilator more than twice per week, any limitation of activities, or any nocturnal symptoms/awakening. (The symptoms are based on subject’s recall and are consistent with the GINA and in principal with the BTS/SIGN guidelines).
    5. Subject questionnaires: Subjects must be able to complete the electronic subject questionnaires as well as those questionnaires that are completed by phone or provide a proxy e.g. a partner/relative/a friend who can do so on their behalf
    6. Gender and Age: Male or female subjects aged 18 years of age at Visit 1
    A female is eligible to enter and participate in the study if she is of:
    Non-child bearing potential (i.e. physiologically incapable of becoming pregnant, including any female who is post-menopausal or surgically sterile). Surgically sterile females are defined as those with a documented hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy or tubal ligation. Post-menopausal females are defined as being amenorrhoeic for greater than 1 year with an appropriate clinical profile, e.g. age appropriate, history of vasomotor symptoms. However in questionable cases, a blood sample with FSH > 40MIU/ml and estradiol <40pg/ml (<147 pmol/L) is confirmatory. OR
    Child bearing potential has a negative urine pregnancy test at Visit 2, and agrees to one of the highly effective and acceptable contraceptive methods used consistently and correctly (i.e. in accordance with the approved product label and the instructions of the physician for the duration of the study – Visit 2 to the end of the study). The list of contraceptive methods is available in Appendix 2.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Recent history of Life-threatening asthma: Defined for this protocol as an asthma episode that required intubation and/or was associated with hypercapnea, respiratory arrest or hypoxic seizures within the last 6 months.
    2. COPD Respiratory Disease: A subject must not have current evidence or GP diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
    3. Other diseases/abnormalities: Subjects with historical or current evidence of uncontrolled or clinically significant disease. Significant is defined as any disease that, in the opinion of the GP/ Investigator, would put the safety of the subject at risk through participation, or which would affect the efficacy or safety analysis if the disease/condition exacerbated during the study.
    4. Drug/food allergy: Subjects with a history of hypersensitivity to any of the study medications (e.g., beta2-agonists, corticosteroid) or components of the inhalation powder (e.g., lactose, magnesium stearate). In addition, subjects with a history of severe milk protein allergy that, in the opinion of the GP/ Investigator, contraindicates the subject’s participation will also be excluded.
    5. Investigational Medications: A subject must not have used any investigational drug within 30 days prior to Visit 2 or within five half-lives (t½) of the prior investigational study (whichever is longer of the two), (if unsure discuss with the medical monitor prior to screening)
    6. Chronic user of systemic corticosteroids: A subject who, in the opinion of the GP/Investigator, is considered to be a chronic user of systemic corticosteroids for respiratory or other indications (if unsure discuss with the medical monitor prior to screening)
    7. Subjects who are using LABA without an ICS as asthma maintenance therapy.
    8. Subjects who plan to move away from the geographical area where the study is being conducted during the study period and/or if subjects have not consented to their medical records being part of the electronic medical records database that is operational in the Salford area.
    9. Subjects whose current medications include RELVAR are not eligible to enter the study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is defined as the percentage of subjects who have either an ACT total score of ≥ 20 or an increase from baseline of ≥ 3 in ACT total score at Week 24 (6th month) assessment.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Week 24 (Visit 4, Month 6) of the study
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary endpoints will include;
    • Percentage of subjects with asthma control (ACT total score ≥ 20) at Weeks 12, 24, 40 and 52.
    • Mean change from baseline in ACT total score at Weeks 12, 24, 40 and 52.
    • Asthma-related secondary care contacts 1,2,5,6
    • Asthma-related primary care contacts 1,2,3,4
    • All secondary care contacts1
    • All primary care contacts1, 3
    • Mean annual rate of severe asthma exacerbations. A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as deterioration of asthma requiring the use of systemic corticosteroids 4 (tablets, suspension, or injection) or antibiotics, an inpatient hospitalisation, or emergency department visit due to asthma that required systemic corticosteroids or antibiotics2, 4, 6.
    •Number of salbutamol inhalers (adjusted to equivalence of 200 actuations) collected by the subjects from study-enrolled community pharmacies over the entire treatment period.
    •Time to discontinuation or modification of initial therapy (i.e. therapy the subject is randomised to at Visit 2).
    •Percentage of subjects who have an increase from baseline of ≥ 0.5 in AQLQ(s) total score at Week 52.
    •Percentage of subjects who have an increase from baseline of ≥ 0.5 in AQLQ(s) environmental stimuli domain score at Week 52.
    Notes defining secondary endpoints:
    1. All contacts are defined as any encounter the subject may have with a doctor or nurse or other healthcare professionals working as part of the NHS (including telephone calls).
    2. Contacts with the NHS or hospitalisation are defined as exacerbation-related contacts if these contacts were a direct result of an acute worsening of asthma symptoms.
    3. These contacts do not include protocol-defined study-related visits/contacts defined as per the Time and Events Table (Table 4).
    4. A prescription of systemic corticosteroid or antibiotics is defined as exacerbation-related if the reason the drug was given, in whole or in part, was to treat an acute worsening of asthma symptoms.
    5. Contacts are defined to be asthma-related as per GP/Investigator defined normal clinical practice
    6. Exacerbation-related hospitalisation includes hospitalisation that is prolonged as a result of an asthma exacerbation.
