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   42864   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7062   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

La presenza concomitante di pseudomembrane lignee in altri apparati non costituirà un criterio di esclusione. 2.Pazienti che possono documentare la storia clinica della propria patologia o che comunque sono a conoscenza delle caratteristiche del decorso della propria malattia (età di insorgenza, storia delle pseudomembrane, durata, trattamenti passati ed eventuali risposte incluse la regressione o la ricomparsa di pseudomembrane), per almeno 6 mesi precedenti al suo ingresso nello studio. 3.Pazienti o i loro rappresentanti legali (in caso di età &lt;18 anni) che sono stati informati sulla natura dello studio, sono d’accordo ed hanno firmato e datato il modulo di consenso informato approvato dall’Investigational Review Bord o dal Comitato Etico. 4.Pazienti disponibili per tutta la durata dello studio. Lo sperimentatore si assicurerà che i soggetti non abbiano pianificato di allontanarsi dall’area in cui si svolge la sperimentazione prima della fine del periodo di ricerca. Nel caso in cui provengano da un altro centro, dovranno acconsentire a presentarsi al centro per tutte le visite di Follow Up.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Subjects presenting LC not associated with Type 1 plasminogen deficiency. 2.Subjects with no history of LC lesions. 3.Subject presenting antibodies against aprotinin or plasminogen at screening. 4.Subjects with any condition which, in the opinion of the Investigator, might interfere with the evaluation of the study objectives, or participation in this trial. 5.Subjects unwilling to give written informed consent or assent to participation. 6.Subjects who have participated in another clinical trial within 1 month before study initiation, i.e. they have received any test drug within 30 days prior the study. 7.Females of childbearing potential who are either pregnant or not using an adequate method of birth control (adequate is defined as hormonal contraceptive or partner vasectomy for at least 3 months, condoms, intrauterine device [IUD], abstinence or other prescribed birth control). 8.Females who are breastfeeding.
    1.Pazienti che presentano Congiuntivite Lignea non associata a Deficit di Plasminogeno di Tipo 1. 2.Pazienti che senza una storia di lesioni correlate alla Congiuntivite Lignea 3.Pazienti che presentano anticorpi contro l’aprotinina o il plasminogeno allo screening 4.Pazienti con patologie concomitanti che, ad opinione dello Sperimentatore, potrebbero interferire con la valutazione degli obiettivi previsti da protocollo o con la partecipazione del soggetto a questo studio. 5.Pazienti che non hanno firmato il Modulo di Consenso informato o Assenso alla partecipazione. 6.Pazienti che hanno partecipato ad un altro studio clinico entro un mese dall’inizio dello studio, i.e. soggetti che hanno ricevuto un farmaco sperimentale nei 30 giorni precedenti. 7.Donne in età fertile che sono in gravidanza o non usano un adeguato metodo di controllo delle nascite (per adeguato si intende contraccettivi ormonali, vasectomia del partner da almeno 3 mesi, preservativo, spirale, astinenza o altri metodi di controllo delle nascite prescritti). 8.Donne in allattamento.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    EFFICACY The prevention of pseudomembrane recurrence during Segment 2 after: •Surgical removal of pseudomembranes, in cases where there is no pseudomembrane regression or partial regression following initial treatment with the IMP (Group 1B); or •Complete pseudomembrane regression during Segment 1 in response to treatment with the IMP (Group 1A). SAFETY Clinical safety will be assessed in all subjects receiving any dose of IMP by evaluating: •Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and respiratory rate. •Adverse Events throughout the study. •Immunogenicity. Blood samples will be taken before starting the treatment at study entry, at the 4-week evaluation, and every 4 weeks thereafter to measure antibodies against human plasminogen and antibodies against bovine aprotinin. •Viral Safety. A pre-treatment serum sample from each subject included in the clinical trial will be stored at a temperature below -70°C for possible future viral testing. A post-treatment serum sample, from each subject who received the IMP at least once, will be collected at the termination visit for comparison. •Local tolerability. Signs and symptoms of sensitization will be collected throughout the study.
    EFFICACIA Prevenzione della ricomparsa delle Pseudomembrane durante il Segmento 2 dopo: •Rimozione chirurgica delle Pseudomembrane nei pazienti che non presentano parziale o totale regressione delle stesse dopo l’iniziale somministrazione dell’IMP (Gruppo 1B); o •Regressione completa delle Pseudomembrane durante il Segmento 1 in risposta al trattamento con l’IMP (Gruppo 1A). SICUREZZA La sicurezza clinica sarà determinata in tutti i pazienti che riceveranno l’IMP tramite la valutazione di: •Segni Vitali (pressione sanguigna, frequenza cardiaca, temperatura e frequenza respiratoria). •Eventi avversi riportati durante lo studio. •Immunogenicità. Campioni di sangue saranno prelevati prima dell’inizio del trattamento, alla quarta settimana e, successivamente, ogni 4 settimane al fine di rilevare la presenza di anticorpi contro il plasminogeno umano e l’aprotinina bovina. •Sicurezza virale. Prima del trattamento, sarà prelevato un campione di siero da ogni paziente incluso nello studio clinico che verrà conservato a temperatura < –70 °C per possibili esami virali futuri. Un secondo prelievo sarà eseguito al termine della ricerca in tutti i pazienti che hanno ricevuto l’IMP almeno una volta e sarà confrontato con quello prelevato prima del trattamento. •Tollerabilità locale. Saranno registrati tutti i segni e sintomi di sensibilizzazione durante l’intera durata dello studio.
