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   42567   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7008   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The main objective of this trial was to assess change in liver iron concentration (LIC) from baseline utilizing FerriScan® (R2) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in subjects with transfusional iron overload receiving SPD602 (SSP-004184AQ) or deferasirox whose primary diagnosis is beta-thalassemia. Study was withdrawn with 0 participants. Sponsor followed EMA's advice and contacted NCAs to enter comment that no participants were recruited. There is still no EudraCT functionality to inform the public that recruitment never started. '999999' was entered in Population of Trial Subjects section since '0' could not be entered due to EudraCT system constraints.

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    03 Oct 2013
    Clarified that total daily dose range will be 16-75 mg/kg/day. Modified starting doses for this study from 32, 50, and 75 mg/kg/day to 16 and 20mg/kg BID. Clarified that total daily doses are divided into 2 daily doses. Removed baseline LIC criterion for determination of starting dose; starting dose is determined by TII. Dose adjustments will be made based on LIC, CIC and/or serum ferritin results. Updated EQ-5D-3L to EQ-5D-5L. Updated information on current treatment options to be consistent with newly available data; updated rationale for SPD602 iron overload indication. Updated Inclusion Criteria 4 & 6 and Exclusion Criteria 5, 6 & 9. Clarified that subjects will be stratified by baseline LIC value and historical transfusion requirement after 2-week washout. Updated Rationale for Twice Daily Dosing text. Updated Rationale for the Dosing Algorithm text. Updated acceptable forms of birth control for women of child-bearing potential. Updated in vitro data for drug-drug interaction potential. Revised information regarding suspension or modification of dosing. Added table showing dose titration increments and BID to total daily dose equivalency. Modified dose increments as well as up and down titrations. Indicated that the investigator will be provided with local prescribing information for deferasirox. Updated safety measurements to include serum creatinine and eGFR. Updated renal function assessments to include eGFR. Added laboratory tests related to sensory disturbances as part of the biochemistry panel at select time points and in the event of a neurological adverse event. Specified that Vitamin D is to be assessed as part of biochemistry panel in the event of neurological averse event requiring follow-up. Added LPI to biochemistry panel. Added NTBI and LPI to the clinical pharmacology assessments discussion. Specified blood sample details for neurology-specific biochemistry testing and updated estimated total mL volume of blood drawn.
