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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
    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 of the study is to assess the BG00012 treatment effect on cognition over 2 year period in RRMS patients
    L’obiettivo primario dello studio consiste nel valutare l’effetto del trattamento con BG00012 sulle funzioni cognitive nei pazienti affetti da SMRR in un periodo di 2 anni
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objective of this study is to further assess BG-12 treatment effect on cognition, predictors of cognitive impairment, clinical efficacy, and patient reported outcomes. In additional the relationship between cognition and patient reported outcome on depression, fatigue, quality of life, and work and social life activity will be examined.
    Additional Assessment:
    - any adverse event (including relapses) that could occur throughout the study
    - comparison of Brief International Cognitive Assessment for Multiple Sclerosis (BICAMS) versus Rao’s Brief Repeatable Battery of Neuropsychological Tests (BRB) together with Stroop Test as a screening tool of cognitive impairment in patients with RRMS.
    L’obiettivo secondario dello studio è di valutare ulteriormente l’effetto del trattamento con BG00012 sulle funzioni cognitive, sui fattori predittivi del deficit cognitivo, sull’efficacia clinica e sui “patient reported outcomes”. Sarà inoltre esaminata la relazione tra funzioni cognitive e “patient reported oucomes” su depressione, “fatigue, qualità della vita e attività lavorativa e sociale.
    Ulteriori valutazioni:
    - qualsiasi evento avverso (incluse le recidive) che si verifichi durante lo studio
    - confronto della performance della batteria di Rao e Stroop Test e della batteria BICAMS nella valutazione delle funzioni cognitive
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
