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   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary efficacy objective is to evaluate whether rivaroxaban, in doses of 10 mg or 20 mg, is superior to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) 100 mg in the prevention of the primary efficacy outcome (i.e. fatal or non-fatal symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism).

    The principal safety objective is to document the incidence of the principal safety outcome (i.e. major bleeding).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary efficacy objective is to evaluate whether rivaroxaban 10 mg and rivaroxaban 20 mg are superior to ASA 100 mg in the prevention of the secondary efficacy outcome (i.e. fatal or non-fatal symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism, myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, systemic non-central nervous system [CNS] embolism).

    The secondary safety objective is to document the incidence of the secondary safety outcome (i.e. clinically relevant non-major bleeding).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Patients with confirmed symptomatic PE and/or DVT who have been treated for 6 to 12 months and did not interrupt anticoagulation for longer than 1 week.
    2. Written informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Legal lower age limitations (country specific)
    2. Indication for therapeutic-dosed anticoagulants
    3. Hypersensitivity to investigational or comparator treatment
    4. Any other contraindication listed in the local labeling for investigational or comparator treatment
    5. Indication for antiplatelet therapy or a conventional non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)
    6. Hepatic disease which is associated with coagulopathy leading to a clinically relevant bleeding risk
    7. Calculated creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min
    8. Active bleeding or high risk for bleeding contraindicating anticoagulant therapy
    9. Life expectancy <6 months
    10. Concomitant use of strong inhibitors of both cytochrome P450 isoenzyme 3A4 (CYP3A4) and P-glycoprotein (P-gp), i.e. all human immunodeficiency virus protease inhibitors and the following azole-antimycotics agents: ketoconazole, itraconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole, if used systemically
    11. Childbearing potential without proper contraceptive measures, pregnancy or breast feeding
    12. Participation in a study with an investigational drug or medical device within 30 days prior to randomization
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Fatal or non-fatal symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Composite efficacy outcomes will be analyzed based on time to first event in the intended 12-month treatment period, using a stratified (for index DVT only and index PE± DVT) Cox proportional hazard model in the full analysis set (FAS). Adjudication results will be the basis for the final analyses.
    The primary efficacy analysis will use a hierarchical (fixed sequence) testing procedure for testing superiority of the individual rivaroxaban doses vs. ASA.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    fatal or non-fatal symptomatic recurrent venous thromboembolism,
    myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, systemic non-central nervous system [CNS] embolism
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The secondary composite outcome will be analyzed with Cox regression and with log rank test as described for the primary efficacy analysis.
