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   36638   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6048   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Recent findings derived from animal and cell culture studies demonstrate an upregulation of synthesis and activity of mitochondrial enzymes under bezafibrat and thus point to a beneficial effect of this substance for the therapy of mitochondrial myopathies (H. Tyynismaa et al. 2010, T. Wenz 2008 und 2010). This findings are further substantiated by clinical observations in course of compassionate use of Bezafibrat for patinets with mitochondrial myopathies at the centres planned to participate in this trial (Reutlingen, München, Salzburg, Innsbruck). The main objective of the trial is therefore the systematic evaluation of efficacy and safety of Bezafibrat as a therapeutic option for patients with mitochondrial myopathies.
    Aktuelle Ergebnisse von Studien mit Tiermodellen und Patientenzelllinien weisen jedoch darauf hin, dass das Arzneimittel Bezafibrat zu einer vermehrte Synthese und Aktivierung von mitochondrialen Enzymen führt und so eine positive Wirkung bei mitochondrialen Muskelerkrankungen erzielt werden könnte (H. Tyynismaa et al. 2010, T. Wenz 2008 und 2010). Einzelne individuelle Heilversuche in den beteiligten Zentren(Reutlingen, München, Salzburg,Innsbruck) und anderen Zentren bekräftigen den Eindruck dass dies therapeutisch genutzt werden kann.Im Rahmen der geplanten klinischen Studie sollen die Wirksamkeit und Sicherheit von Bezafibrat in der Behandlung von mitochondrialen Muskelerkrankungen systematisch evaluiert werden. Nur so kann rational beurteilt werden, ob sich die erhoffte Wirksamkeit bestätigt und ob unter Abwägung relevanter Risiken eine generelle Therapieempfehlung gerechtfertigt ist.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    time intervall until pre-defined manifestation of disease progression measured by walking-distance in a 6-minutes-walking test
    disease progression is defined as a decline of >20% in performance
    Primärer Studienendpunkt ist die Zeit bis zum Auftreten einer definierten Krankheitsprogredienz gemessen an:
    Gehstrecke im 6-Minuten-Gehtest
    Krankheitsprogredienz entspricht per definitionem einer Verschlechterung im Gehtest um >20%
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The subjective disease progression is measured every 4 weeks by the patients or their parents by Newcastle Scale Section 4. Once the score points to a disease progression, patients visit the study site where the primary endpoint is evaluated. Elsewise, the primary endpoint is routinely evaluated 3 and 6 months post randomization. A decline of >20% in the 6-minutes-walking test leads to termination of study participation. Elsewise, termination is routinely scheduled at study visit 6 months post randomization.
    alle 4 Wochen wird die subjektive Krankheitsprogredienz durch den Patienten oder dessen Eltern mittels Newcastle Scale Section 4 erhoben. Ergibt sich Hinweis auf Progredienz, so erfolgt außerdordentliche Visite und Evaluierung des Endpunkts. Andernfalls erfolgt die Bewertung des Endpunkts 3 Monate sowie 6 Monate nach der Randomisierung. Eine Verschlechterung um 20% des 6-Minuten-Gehtests führt zur Beendigung der Studienteilnahme. Allenfalls endet die Teilnahme bei der 6 Monats Visite ab Randomisierung.
