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   28635   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   4333   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18612   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To confirm the efficacy of the Coartem pediatric formulation in infants and children with a body weight of ≥5 kg and <35 kg suffering from P. falciparum malaria by testing the hypothesis that Coartem 6-dose regimen pediatric formulation is non-inferior to the presently used Coartem 6-dose regimen of crushed conventional tablet formulation on the 28-day Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-corrected parasitological cure rate.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To compare the 7-day parasitological cure rate, 14-day PCR-corrected parasitological cure rates between the two treatment groups
    • To compare time to parasite, fever, and gametocyte clearance between the two treatment groups
    • To compare the safety and tolerability profile of the two treatment groups on AEs, general laboratory, vital signs, and ECG measurements
    • To investigate drug plasma levels (sparse samplings) with the aim to assess any potential relationship between Coartem exposure and safety and/or efficacy.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • male or female infants and children ≤12 years of age
    (Sites will strive to recruit patients across the entire age range, but based on cultural considerations some may need to restrict their target population to female infants and children ≤7 years of age, or to male or female infants and children ≤5 years)
    • body weight of ≥5 kg and <35 kg,
    • with a confirmed diagnosis of uncomplicated malaria caused by the Plasmodium falciparum parasite
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • complicated malaria
    • persistent vomiting
    • malaria due to other parasites than Plasmodium falciparum
    • antimalarial treatment received in the past 2 weeks
    • known chronic disease (e.g. positive HIV status, severe cardiac, renal, or hepatic disease)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    To confirm the efficacy of the Coartem pediatric formulation in infants and children with a body weight of ≥5 kg and <35 kg suffering from P. falciparum malaria by testing the hypothesis that Coartem 6-dose regimen pediatric formulation is non-inferior to the presently used Coartem 6-dose regimen of crushed conventional tablet formulation on the 28-day Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-corrected parasitological cure rate.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    28-day PCR-corrected
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • To compare the 7-day parasitological cure rate, 14-day PCR-corrected parasitological cure rates between the two treatment groups
    • To compare time to parasite, fever, and gametocyte clearance between the two treatment groups
    • To compare the safety and tolerability profile of the two treatment groups on AEs, general laboratory, vital signs, and ECG measurements
