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   39603   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6490   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    VENTRICULAR REPOLARIZATION SUB-STUDY: (Appendix 8, Protocol Version 3.0 08 May 2013)
    To evaluate the effect of ARN-S09 on ventricular repolarization in a subset of patients from selected clinical sites. The effect of ARN-S09 on ventricular repolarization will be centrally analyzed by a third-party cardiac safety laboratory in a subset of 100 patients enrolled at selected sites that will be participating in the main protocol. Both ARN-S09 and placebo patients will be enrolled in a blinded manner as per the main protocol randomization criteria.
    -The primary objective of this sub-study is to evaluate whether ARN-509 has a threshold pharmacological effect on cardiac repolarization, as detected by changes in electrocardiogram (ECG) QT intervals corrected for heart rate by Fridericia's correction method (QTcF)
    The secondary objectives of this study sub-study are as follows:
    -To investigate the effect of ARN-509 on the following ECG parameters:PR, RR, QRS, QT, QTcB (Bazett's correction method), and T-Wave morphology
    -To further characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of ARN-509 and to assess the exposure-effect relationships (if any) between ARN509 plasma concentrations and ECG interval change
