Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43800   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic and slowly progressive cholestatic liver disease of autoimmune etiology characterized by injury of the intrahepatic bile ducts that may eventually lead to liver failure. Affected individuals are usually in their fifth
    to seventh decades of life at time of diagnosis, and 90% are women.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    PBC is an autoimmune disease of the liver marked by slow progressive destruction of the small bile ducts of the liver, with the intralobular ducts (Canals of Hering) affected early in the disease.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is change from baseline to Week 13 in pruritus as measured by the weekly sum score using the Adult ItchRO instrument. For this instrument, the subject indicates the severity of their itching in the morning and in the evening each day during screening and during the study period for 13 weeks. The
    daily score will be assessed as outlined in Section 8.4.1 of the protocol and will have a range from 0-10, with the higher score indicating increasing itch severity. The Adult ItchRO weekly sum score will be the sum of each daily score over a study week, and is thought to provide a
    measure of the weekly burden of itch.

    For the change from baseline calculation in the Adult ItchRO weekly sum score, baseline is defined as the weekly sum of the daily scores in the week consisting of the 7 days immediately prior to Day 0. The Week 13 Adult ItchRO weekly sum score is defined as the weekly sum of the daily scores of the week consisting of the 7 days immediately prior to the Week 13 visit. Missing data on the daily score will be imputed using the average daily Adult ItchRO score from that week.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Week 0 and week 13.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary efficacy endpoints include:

    Change from baseline in pruritus as measured by Adult ItchRo weekly sum scores at Weeks 4 and 8.

    Change from baseline in pruritis as measured by the AdultItchRO average daily scores at weeks 4, 8 and 13. The average daily score for a 7-day period will be the sum of the daily scores for the 7-day period divided by the number of days the dairy is completed in that 7-day period

    Change from baseline in alkaline phosphatase at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline in 5-D Itch score at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline in fasting serum bile acid level at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline in bile acid synthesis [serum 7α-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one (7αC4)] at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Exploratory efficacy endpoints include:

    Pruritus response rates as measured by Adult ItchRO at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline for other biochemical markers of cholestasis (total and conjugated bilirubin) at Weeks 4, 8, and 13.

    Change from baseline for other liver enzymes (ALT, AST) at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline for lipid biomarkers (total cholesterol, LDL-C) at Weeks 4 and 13.

    Change from baseline for PBC-40 at Weeks 4, 8 and 13.

    Change from baseline for MOS-Sleep at Weeks 4 and 13.
