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   35510   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5839   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
    We would like to evaluate the effect of Intralymphatic Immunotherpy (ILIT) on patients with rhinoconjunctivitis due to grass pollen allergy.
    1. Is the clinical effect comparable to that of Subcutaneous Immunotherapy (SCIT) measured in BasoSCIT (funded by Lundbeck grant R32-A1482)
    2. Does a booster injection after one year confer additional symptom relief
    3. Can enumerating plasma cells one week after injection monitor ILIT?
    4. Is the effect on Basophil activation (BAT EC50) a useful tool to document clinical effect?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Establish a new method of immunotherapy, intralymphatic immunotherapy at the Allergy Center, Dept. of Respiratory Diseases, Aarhus University Hospital
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    We have planned to do a pilot-study, before starting the main study, to establish the technical procedures needed in the main study: intralymphatic injections, flow-cytometric cell investigation
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    history of seasonal rhino-conjunctivitis during the grass pollen season
    positive skin prick test for grass pollen extract
    informed consent given
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    severe comorbidity
    uncontrolled asthma bronchiale
    pregnancy
    E.5 End points

    - a significant decrease in allergic symptoms during grass pollen season
    -a decrease in basophil sensitivity measured by basophil activation test (10 fold)
    -detection of specific plasma cells one week after injections
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    1. during the grass pollen seasons in 2014 and 2015
    2. 3 weeks after injections
    3. 1 week after injections
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    -a possible positive effect of a booster injection after one year
    -changes in specific immunoglobulins (IgE, IgX)
