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   40666   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6638   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.1.2System Organ Class 10027433 - Metabolism and nutrition disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To demonstrate the reduction of LDL-C by REGN727 as add-on therapy to stable, maximally-tolerated daily statin therapy with or without other Lipid Modifying Therapy in comparison with placebo after 24 weeks of treatment in patients with heFH.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the effect of REGN727 75 mg in comparison with placebo on LDL-C after 12 weeks of treatment
    To evaluate the effect of REGN727 on other lipid parameters (eg, ApoB, non HDL-C, total-C, Lp[a], HDL-C, TG levels, and ApoA-1 levels)
    To evaluate the long-term effect of REGN727 on LDL-C
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of REGN727
    To evaluate the development of anti-REGN727 antibodies
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1.Patients with heFH* who are not adequately controlled** with a maximally-tolerated daily dose*** of statin with or without other LMT, at a stable dose prior to the screening visit (week -2).

    *Diagnosis of heFH must be made either by genotyping or by clinical criteria. For those patients not genotyped, the clinical diagnosis may be based on either the Simon Broome criteria for definite FH (Appendix 1) or the WHO/Dutch Lipid Network criteria with a score of >8 points (Appendix 2).

    **“Not adequately controlled” is defined as LDL-C ≥70 mg/dL (1.81 mmol/L) at the screening visit (week -2) in patients with a history of documented CVD (Appendix 3), or LDL-C ≥100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L) at the screening visit (week -2) in patients without a history of documented CVD.

    ***”Maximally-tolerated dose” is defined as (any of the following are acceptable):
    •Rosuvastatin 20 mg or 40 mg daily
    •Atorvastatin 40 mg or 80 mg daily
    •Simvastatin 80 mg daily (if already on this dose for >1 year – see exclusion criterion #7)

    Note: Patients who are not able to be on any of the above statin doses should be treated with the dose of daily atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, or simvastatin which is considered appropriate for the patient, according to the investigator's judgment. Some examples of acceptable reasons for a patient taking a lower statin dose include, but are not limited to: adverse effects on higher doses, advanced age, low body mass index, regional practices, local prescribing information, concomitant medications, co-morbid conditions such as impaired glucose tolerance/impaired fasting glucose. The reason(s) will be documented in the case report form (CRF).

    2.Provide signed informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Patient without diagnosis of heFH made either by genotyping or by clinical criteria
    2.LDL-C <70 mg/dL (<1.81 mmol/L) at the screening visit (week-2) in patients with history of documented cardiovascular disease
    3.LDL-C <100 mg/dL (<2.59 mmol/L) at the screening visit (week ‑2) in patients without history of documented cardiovascular disease
    4.Not on a stable dose of LMT (including statin) for at least 4 weeks and/or fenofibrate for at least 6 weeks, as applicable, prior to the screening visit (week -2) and from screening to randomization
    5.Currently taking another statin than simvastatin, atorvastatin, or rosuvastatin
    6.Simvastatin, atorvastatin, or rosuvastatin is not taken daily or not taken at a registered dose
    7.Daily doses above atorvastatin 80 mg, rosuvastatin 40 mg, or simvastatin 40 mg (except for patients on simvastatin 80 mg for more than 1 year, who are eligible)
    8.Use of fibrates, other than fenofibrate within 6 weeks of the screening visit (week-2) or between screening and randomization visits
    9.Use of nutraceutical products or over-the-counter therapies that may affect lipids which have not been at a stable dose/amount for at least 4 weeks prior to the screening visit (week -2) or between screening and randomization visits
    10.Use of red yeast rice products within 4 weeks of the screening visit (week-2), or between screening and randomization visits
    11.Patient who has received plasmapheresis treatment within 2 months prior to the screening visit (week -2), or has plans to receive it during the study
    12.Recent (within 3 months prior to the screening visit [week -2] or between screening and randomization visits) MI, unstable angina leading to hospitalization, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia, stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), carotid revascularization, endovascular procedure or surgical intervention for peripheral vascular disease
