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   39568   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6487   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Global Hemostatic Efficacy score, which is composed of 3 individual ratings:
    1. Assessment of intra-operative hemostatic efficacy of BAX855 performed by the operating surgeon
    2. Assessment of postoperative hemostatic efficacy of BAX855 at postoperative day 1 performed by the investigator
    3. Assessment of postoperative hemostatic efficacy of BAX855 at EOS visit performed by the investigator (day 14 or discharge, whichever is first)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    6 months (±2 weeks) for first and secondary endpoints
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Development of neutralizing FVIII inhibitors
    • Development of binding antibodies to FVIII, BAX855, and PEG
    • Development of anti-CHO antibodies.
    • Occurrence of thrombotic events
    • Other IP-related adverse events (AEs)
    • Clinically significant changes in vital signs and routine laboratory parameters (hematology, clinical chemistry and virology)
    Pharmacokinetics of BAX855
    Primary PK:IR and T1/2. Secondary PK: AUC0-∞/dose (area under the plasma concentration /time curve from time 0 to infinity), MRT, CL, Vss, AUC0-96h/dose (area under the plasma concentration/time curve from time 0 to 96 hours post-infusion.
    Blood loss
    The observed versus predicted operative blood loss will be described for the period from initiation of the intervention to 24 hours after completion of the intervention or drain removal, as applicable,
    The intraoperative blood loss will be measured by determining the volume of blood and fluid removal through suction into the collection container (waste box and/or cell saver) and the estimated blood loss into swabs and towels during the procedure, per the anesthesiologist’s record. Post-operatively, blood loss will be determined by the drainage volume collected, which will likely consist mainly of drainage fluid via vacuum or gravity drain, as applicable.
    Transfusion requirements
    The type and number of units and amount (in mL) of blood products will be recorded. Furthermore, also salvage of blood obtained from autologous transfusion systems, e.g. cell savers, will be recorded. In addition, the type and amount of fluid replacement and volume expanders will be recorded as concomitant medication (e.g. amount and number of units of salvaged blood, red blood cells, platelets and other blood products transfused).
    Bleeding Episodes
    Any clinically relevant bleeding episodes, as well as the need for any further surgical interventions, are to be recorded. Study subjects will be closely monitored for the occurrence of bleeding episodes during the entire intra- and post-operative period, until the time of discharge from the investigative site or treatment facility.
    Drug consumption
    Daily and total weight-adjusted dose of BAX855 per subject.
