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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of two dosing regimens of benralizumab on asthma exacerbations in patients on high-dose ICS-LABA with uncontrolled asthma
    Protection of trial subjects
    Data safety monitoring board (DSMB) evaluates cumulative safety and other clinical trial data at regular intervals and making appropriate recommendations based on the available data. The DSMB functions independently of all other individuals associated with the conduct of the studies, including the study sponsor, AstraZeneca. The committee operates in accordance with a DSMB charter.

    End point title
    Mean change from baseline to Week 48 in asthma symptom score for patients with baseline eosinophils >=300/uL
    End point description
    Asthma symptoms during night time and day time are recorded by the patient each morning and evening in the asthma daily diary. Baseline is defined as the average of data collected from the evening of study day -10 to the morning of study day 1. Each time point is calculated as bi-weekly means based on daily diary data. If more than 50% of scores are missing in a 14 day period then this is considered as missing. Symptom score lower is better. Analysis is based on the primary analysis population, ie, baseline eosinophils >=300/uL.

    Patient and clinician's responder assessment to treatment
    End point description
    CGIC (Clinical global impression of change), and PGIC (Patient global impression of change) are overall evaluation of response to treatment, conducted separately by investigator and patient using 7-point rating scale, ranging from 1 (very much improved), to 7 (very much worse). Analysis is based on the primary analysis population, ie, baseline eosinophils >=300/uL. Due to the measurement was added after the second amendment of the protocol, not all patients had data for the analyses.

    Mean change from baseline to Week 48 in asthma symptom score for patients with baseline eosinophils <300/uL
    End point description
    Asthma symptoms during night time and day time are recorded by the patient each morning and evening in the asthma daily diary. Baseline is defined as the average of data collected from the evening of study day -10 to the morning of study day 1. Each time point is calculated as bi-weekly means based on daily diary data. If more than 50% of scores are missing in a 14 day period then this is considered as missing. Symptom score lower is better. Analysis is based on the primary analysis population, ie, baseline eosinophils >=300/uL.

    End point description
    ACQ-6 contains one bronchodilator question and 5 symptom questions. Questions are rated from 0 (totally controlled) to 6 (severely uncontrolled). Mean ACQ-6 score is the average of the responses. Mean scores of <=0.75 indicates well-controlled asthma, scores between 0.75 to <=1.5 indicate partly controlled asthma, and >1.5 indicates not well controlled asthma. Analysis is based on the primary analysis population, ie, baseline eosinophils <300/uL.
