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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The aim of the study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of rituximab against that of cyclophosphamide as first line therapy in patients with severe, progressive connective tissue disease associated interstitial lung disease. The study will test the hypothesis that rituximab is superior to intravenous cyclophosphamide, in terms of both safety and efficacy, as a treatment for extensive and progressive connective tissue disease associated interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Other main objectives will be; 1. To compare the safety profile of rituximab to intravenous cyclophosphamide in individuals with CTD-ILD 2. To assess the health economic benefits of rituximab compared to current standard of care for CTD-ILD – including measurements of healthcare utilisation, quality of life and carer burden. 3. To evaluate a range of exploratory biomarkers for disease severity, prognosis and treatment response in CTD-ILD
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects will be recruited prospectively from rheumatology or interstitial lung disease units at 6 UK centres. Prior to enrolment potential study subjects will be assessed according to the following inclusion and exclusion criteria; Inclusion Criteria: • A diagnosis of connective tissue disease, based on internationally accepted criteria, in one of the following categories: o Systemic sclerosis o Idiopathic interstitial myopathy (including polymyositis/dermatomyositis) o Mixed connective tissue disease • Severe and/or progressive interstitial lung disease associated with the underlying connective tissue disease. • Chest HRCT performed within 12 months of randomisation • Intention of the caring physician to treat the ILD with intravenous cyclophosphamide (with treatment indications including deteriorating symptoms attributable to ILD, deteriorating lung function tests, worsening gas exchange or extent of ILD at first presentation)and where there is a reasonable expectation that immunosuppressive treatment will stabilize or improve CTD-ILD • Written informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Exclusion Criteria: • Age <18 or >80 years. • Previous treatment with Rituximab and/or intravenous Cyclophosphamide • Known hypersensitivity to Rituximab or Cyclophosphamide or their components • Significant (in the opinion of the investigator) other organ co-morbidity including cardiac, hepatic or renal impairment • Co-existent obstructive pulmonary disease (e.g. asthma, COPD, emphysema) with pre bronchodilator FEV1/FVC < 70% • Patients at significant risk for infectious complications following immunosuppression including HIV positive or other immunodeficiency syndromes (including hypogammaglobulineamia) • Suspected or proven untreated tuberculosis • Viral hepatitis • Infection requiring antibiotic treatment in the preceding four weeks • Unexplained neurological symptoms (which may be suggestive of progressive mutifocal leukoencephalopathy; PML). Neurological symptoms arising as a consequence of the underlying CTD do not necessitate exclusion. • Other investigational therapy (participation in research trial) received within 8 weeks of randomisation • Immunosuppressive or CTD disease modifying therapy (other than corticosteroids) received within 2 weeks of randomisation • Pregnant or breast feeding women, or women of child-bearing potential, not using a reliable contraceptive method for up to 12 months following IMP • Unexplained haematuria, or previous bladder carcinoma • CT scan > 12 months from randomisation • Unable to provide informed written consent
