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   43396   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7179   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 objective consists in the evaluation of the safety of the treatment:
    - In the dose escalation phase the principal objective is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the procedure (MRI and administration method) that is not part of the routine care of a heart attack, and confirm that the target dose can be administered intracoronary in a safe way.
    The following will be assessed:
    o Deaths from any cause within 30 days
    o Adverse Events (AEs) of any nature observed from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of patient inclusion to up to 7 days after treatment administration.

    - In the randomization phase, the Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) will be assessed for the first 30 days of treatment administration, defined as death from any cause, new myocardial infarction, hospitalization for failure heart, ventricular tachycardia (VT), ventricular fibrillation (VF) and stroke.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    MACE in the first 6 months and at 12 months. Death from any cause. Death from cardiovascular cause. General monitoring of all serious adverse events from any cause.
    Evolution of infarct (morphology): % change in MRI at 6 and 12 months after treatment administration vs. screening MRI and 1 month MRI. Compare CSC versus placebo. Evolution of edema: % change in MRI at 1 month after treatment administration vs screening MRI. Evolution of the biomechanical parameters by MRI: % changes of MRI at 6 and 12 months of administration of the treatment vs screening MRI and 1 month MRI. Compare CSC vs placebo.
    CLINICAL PARAMETERS OF ANALYSIS: ProBNP curve (one day prior to 2nd hemodynamic assessment, 6 months, 12 months). CRP (one day prior to 2nd hemodynamic assessment, at discharge, 1 month). 6 minute walking test at discharge, 6 and 12 months. NYHA at discharge, 6 and 12 months. MLHFQ at discharge, 6 and 12 months.
