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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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.

    To evaluate whether simtuzumab (formerly referred to as GS-6624 ) is effective at preventing the histologic progression of liver fibrosis and the clinical progression to cirrhosis in subjects with NASH.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the safety of simtuzumab in subjects with NASH;
    To assess the immunogenicity of simtuzumab in this population;
    To assess whether baseline LOXL2 levels are predictive of response to simtuzumab therapy (active arms) and/or prognostic for disease progression (placebo arm);
    To compare different efficacy assessment tools in this population;
    To determine whether non-invasive measures of fibrosis can predict histologic regression of fibrosis and prevention of progression to cirrhosis in this population.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    MRE Substudy
    The Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) Substudy will consist of approximately 50 subjects from selected investigative sites with the ability to perform MRE. Subjects will undergo a liver stiffness assessment by MRE at Baseline Visit and at weeks 48, 96, 144, 192 and 240 or its equivalent End of Treatment Visit.

    Impedance Ultrasonography Substudy
    The Impedance Ultrasonography Substudy will consist of approximately 50 subjects from selected investigative sites with the ability to perform impedance ultrasonography (such as Fibroscan). Subjects will undergo a liver stiffness assessment by impedance ultrasonography at Baseline Visit, and at weeks 48, 96, 144, 192 and 240 or its equivalent End of Treatment Visit.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Males and females 18 - 65 years of age;
    2. Be willing and able to provide written informed consent;
    3. Have chronic liver disease due to NASH defined as macrovesicular steatosis involving >5% of hepatocytes on a liver biopsy with associated lobular inflammation;
    4. Stage 3-4 fibrosis by Ishak score on a liver biopsy. If the subject is deemed ineligible for this study, the liver biopsy, if performed according to protocol specifications and is within 3 months of the screening visit, may be used to determine eligibility for the GS-US-321-0106 study (another Gilead
    Sciences NASH study that also must be IRB/EC approved at participating centers);
    5. Exclusion of other causes of liver disease including viral hepatitis and alcoholic liver disease;
    6. Must be willing and able to comply with all study requirements;
    7. Must have AST and ALT ≤ 10 x clULN (refer to the central laboratory manual for normal ranges);
    8. Must have serum creatinine < 2.0 mg/dL;
    9. Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test prior to starting study treatment. For the purposes of this study, a female subject of child-bearing potential is a woman who has not had a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or medically-documented ovarian failure. Women ≤ 50 years of age with amenorrhea of any duration will be considered to be of childbearing potential;
    10. All female subjects who are of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception during intercourse from the screening visit throughout the study period and for 90 days following the last dose of study drug. If females utilize hormonal agents as one of their contraceptive methods, the same hormonal method must have been used for at least 1 month before study dosing. Females on hormonal methods must also utilize a barrier method as another
    form of contraception (See Section 7.11.2);
    11. Lactating females must agree to discontinue nursing before starting study treatment.
    12. Male subjects, if not vasectomized, are required to use barrier contraception (condom plus spermicide) during intercourse from the screening through the study completion
    and for 90 days following the last dose of study drug.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Pregnant or breast feeding;
    2. Cirrhosis of the liver;
    3. Any history of hepatic decompensation, including ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, variceal bleeding;
    4. Weight reduction surgery in the past 5 years;
    5. HCV RNA positive;
    6. HBsAg positive;
    7. Alcohol consumption greater than 21oz/week for males or 14oz/week for females (1oz/25mL of alcohol is present in 1 12oz/300mL beer, 1 4oz/125mL glass of wine, and a 1 oz/25mL measure of 40% proof alcohol)
    8. Positive urine screen for amphetamines, cocaine or opiates (i.e. heroin, morphine) at screening. Subjects on stable methadone or buprenorphine maintenance treatment for at least 6 months
    prior to screening may be included in the study. Subjects with a positive urine drug screen due to prescription opioid-based medication are eligible if the prescription and diagnosis are reviewed and approved by the investigator;
    9. Clinically significant cardiac disease;
    10. History of malignancy, other than non-melanomatous skin cancer, within 5 years prior to screening;
    11. Major surgical procedure within 30 days prior to screening or the presence of an open wound;
    12. Known hypersensitivity to the investigation product or any of its formulation excipients;
    13. History of bleeding diathesis within 6 months of screening;
    14. Unavailable for follow-up assessment or concern for subject’s compliance with the protocol procedures;
    15. Participation in an investigational trial of a drug or device within 30 days prior to screening;
    16. Any other condition that in the opinion of the investigator renders the subject a poor risk for inclusion into the study.
