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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Background: 30% of patients undergoing surgery for total thyroidectomy in the first 24 hours may experience a transient hypocalcaemia (serum calcium <8 mg / dl). According to recent studies, pre-surgery serum levels of vitamin D appear to predict the transient hypocalcemia, and those most at risk would be those with vitamin D insufficiency .
    Background: Nel 30% dei pazienti sottoposti all’intervento di tiroidectomia totale nelle prime 24 si riscontra una ipocalcemia transitoria (calcemia < 8 mg/dl). Secondo recenti studi i livelli sierici di vitamina D pre-intervento sembrano predire l’ipocalcemia transitoria, i soggetti più a rischio sarebbero quelli con insufficienza vitaminica D

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Aim of the study: administer to patients candidates for thyroidectomy for multinodular goiter cholecalciferol 50,000 IU per os a week, for 4 weeks before surgery, to achieve sufficient vitamin D levels and reduce the risk of transient hypocalcemias of at least 50% of the expected value (power 80%).

    Scopo del lavoro: supplementare i pazienti candidati all’intervento di tiroidectomia per gozzo multinodulare con colecalciferolo 50.000 ui per os a settimana, per 4 settimane prima dell’intervento, per raggiungere la sufficienza vitaminica e ridurre il rischio di ipocalcemie transitorie di almeno il 50% del valore atteso (power 80%).

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary end point: reduce the risk of transient hypocalcemias of at least 50% of the expected value (power 80%).The sample will be randomized at enrollment: 120 patients will receive oral cholecalciferol 50,000 IU per week for 4 weeks before surgery, 120 patients will have no treatment (4). The cholecalciferol will be free provided to patients from Abiogen Pharma spa. Two days before the operation will be re-evaluated the same parameters measured at enrollment. After 24 hours of surgery the incidence of hypocalcemia will be evaluated biochemically. 6 months after surgery through telephone contact, the patient will be asked to re-evaluate the possible persistence of hypocalcemia.
    Methods: The following parameters will be measured in the Policlinico Umberto I, at enrollment, and two days before the surgery:
    • Total calcium
    • Ionized calcium
    • Phosphorus
    • 25(OH) vitamin D
    • Parathyroid hormone
    After 24 hours and 6 months from surgery:
    • Ionized calcium
    • Parathyroid hormone
    End point primario: ridurre il rischio di ipocalcemie transitorie di almeno il 50% del valore atteso (power 80%).Il campione sarà randomizzato all’arruolamento: 120 pazienti riceveranno colecalciferolo 50.000 ui per os a settimana per 4 settimane prima dell’intervento, 120 pazienti non avranno alcun trattamento (4). Il colecalciferolo verrà fornito gratuitamente ai pazienti dalla Abiogen Pharma spa. Due giorni prima dell’ intervento verranno rivalutati gli stessi parametri ematochimici dosati all’arruolamento. Dopo 24 ore dall’intervento sarà valutata l’incidenza di ipocalcemia mediante valutazione biochimica. Dopo 6 mesi dall’intervento mediante contatto telefonico verrà invitato il paziente a rivalutare l’eventuale persistenza di ipocalcemia.
    Metodi: Verranno dosati, presso il laboratorio del Policlinico Umberto I, all’arruolamento e due giorni prima dell’intervento:
    • calcio totale
    • calcio ionizzato
    • fosforo
    • 25(OH)vitamina D
    • paratormone
    Dopo 24 ore e a 6 mesi dall’intervento:
    • calcio ionizzato
    • paratormone
