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   43839   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7280   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.

    Anaemia with refractory cold agglutinin disease
    Anemia con crioagglutinemia refrattaria
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Type of red cell-destruction anaemia caused by cold autoantibodies. The refractory state is due to the lack of recovery from anaemia after first-line treatment.
    Forma di anemia da distruzione dei globuli rossi causata da autoanticorpi freddi. La refrattarietà è dovuta alla mancanza di risoluzione dell’anemia dopo trattamenti di prima linea.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the trial is to evaluate the achievement of transfusion independence after Bortezomib therapy or of a significant rise of hemoglobin concentration in patients with moderate to severe anemia related to CAD.
    L’obiettivo primario dello studio è valutare il raggiungimento dell’indipendenza da trasfusione dopo la terapia con Bortezomib o di un aumento significativo della concentrazione di emoglobina in pazienti con anemia da moderata a grave correlata a criogglutinemia (CAD, cold agglutinin disease).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - Evaluation of Bortezomib therapy in terms of safety. - Evaluation of the duration of transfusion independence. - Evaluation of the effects of treatment on the underlying clonal B cell disorder.
    - Valutazione della terapia con Bortezomib in termini di sicurezza; - Valutazione della durata dell’indipendenza da trasfusione; - Valutazione degli effetti del trattamento sulle patologie correlate alle sottostanti linee cellulari B.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    - Pazienti con patologia di crioagglutinemia che richieda una trasfusione o con una concentrazione di emoglobina al di sotto di 10g/L determinata almeno mensilmente durante i due mesi precedenti l’entrata nello studio; - Fallimento o almeno un precedente tentativo di trattamento; - Valutazione dei livelli di emoglobina; - Titolo della crioagglutinina a 4°C ≥ 64; - Consenso informato scritto.

Post-menopausal women must be amenorrhoic for at least 24 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential. Male and female patients must agree to employ an effective barrier method of birth control throughout the study and for up to 3 months following discontinuation of study drug
    - Presenza di una concomitante patologia linfoproliferativa, richiedente un trattamento specifico per ragioni diverse dall’anemia emolitica correlata alla crioagglutinemia; - Preesistente neuropatia periferica; - Conosciuta ipersensibilità al Bortezomib; - Comportamento non collaborativo o mancata aderenza alla terapia; - Disordini psichiatrici o condizioni che possano compromettere la capacità di esprimere il proprio consenso informato. - Donne in gravidanza. (Le donne potenzialmente fertili devono eseguire un test di gravidanza che risulti negativo). Le donne in menopausa non devono aver avuto il ciclo mestruale nei 24 mesi prima dell’inizio della terapia per essere considerate come non potenzialmente fertili. Uomini e donne devono essere d’accordo ad utilizzare una barriera contraccettiva efficace durante lo svolgimento dello studio e per 3 mesi dopo l’ultima somministrazione del farmaco sperimentale.
