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   42567   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7008   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.

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Patients with Crohn's disease with absence of disease activity during biologic therapy (infliximab)
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease) with absence of disease activity during treatment with a biologic agent.

    E.1.2Classification code 10011401
    E.1.2Term Crohn's disease
    E.1.2System Organ Class 10017947 - Gastrointestinal disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The aim of the study is to investigate if infliximab (IFX) can safely and favourably be discontinued in patients with Crohn's disease in sustained complete remission on IFX maintenance therapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Further we will examine the clinical utility of measuring levels/activity of IFX and activity of anti-IFX Ab in patients in sustained complete remission, in order to investigate whether pharmacoimmunological data can predict the clinical outcome and rationalize therapeutic management of these patients with respect to continuation or discontinuation of IFX therapy. Additional, we will investigate the optimal time-point, out of three, to measure this activity.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Primary inclusion criteria:
    • Luminal Crohn's disease defined according to standardized diagnostic criteria.
    • Age ≥ 18 years.
    • IFX treatment length minimum 12 months (minimum 365 days from first IFX administration to last IFX administration prior to inclusion). Episodic therapy with IFX pause > 12 weeks is not accepted within the last year. The treatment interval in the last three months has to be of 6-10 weeks.
    • Complete remission defined as:
    o Crohn’s Disease Activity Index (CDAI) score < 150,22 and
    o Biochemical remission, and
    o No other signs of disease activity as evaluated by endoscopic examination, capsule endoscopy or by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
    • Stable remission, judged by the treating physician, at two consecutive treatments visits corresponding 2 scheduled IFX infusions. Thus, the first visit is during IFX maintaining therapy (screening visit). The second visit is at time of inclusion corresponding time of next scheduled IFX infusion (i.e. after ≈ 8 weeks).
    • No use of oral steroids within 3 months prior to inclusion.
    • Concomitant therapy with other immune suppressants, except steroids, is allowed. The dosage and frequency must have been stable three months prior to inclusion and must remain stable throughout the study period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Primary exclusion criteria:
    • Initial indication for IFX being predominantly fistulizing perianal disease.
    • Active fistulizing perianal disease.
    • Any contraindications for continuing IFX treatment, including prior acute or delayed infusion reaction to a TNF- inhibiting agent, any active infection requiring parenteral or oral antibiotic treatment, known infection with tuberculosis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or hepatitis virus.
    • Any condition including physician finds incompatible with participation in the study or the patient being unwilling or unable to follow protocol requirements.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary endpoint

    The primary endpoint of this study is the proportion of patients who maintain remission, i.e. CDAI <150.

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    This endpoint is assessed at 48 weeks.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary endpoints

    Patients who continue IFX and patients who discontinue IFX are compared with respect to the following at 48 weeks after inclusion:

    • Proportion of patients who maintain complete remission.
    • Proportion of patients experiencing relapse.
    • The proportion of patients, who are no longer in remission, but are not in relapse.
    • Median time to relapse after discontinuation of IFX.
    • Change from baseline in disease activity evaluated by: CDAI as assessed by CDAI score, quality of life (QoL) as assessed by short-IBDQ, work productivity and activity as assessed by WPAI, biochemical markers assessed by, i.e. C-reactive protein (CRP), platelets, white blood cell (WBC) count, Hemoglobin (Hb) and fecal calprotectin and colonoscopy (scored by the SES-CD) / MR imaging.
    • Economical expenses in the to groups.
