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   38179   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6271   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    The original trial (EudraCT 2010-023021-38) recruited 74 patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis in stable condition while treated with first line injectible disease-modifying drugs (DMDs), eg beta-interferons or glatiramere acetate.
    This extension study involves the same patients, those that consent to participate in this extension trial.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which is a chronic disorder characterized by a tendency for recurrent inflammation in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Nervous System Diseases [C10]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.2 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.2Version 16.0
    E.1.2Level PT
    E.1.2Classification code 10028245

    E.1.2System Organ Class 10029205 - Nervous system disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the feasability and safety of switching from injectible MS treatments to Mabthera in stable relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS).
    To study the effects on inflammatory parameters on magnetic resonance imaging when switching MS therapy to Mabthera in RRMS
    To study the development of neurodegenerative processes after therapy switch to Rituximab using quantitative MRI measurements and analysis of biomarkers for axonal damage in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
    To evaluate long-term effects and safety of treatment with Mabthera in MS
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To make health economic assessments and compare cost – effectiveness between the present first line disease modifying drugs (DMDs) with Rituximab

    To compare patient satisfaction and health related quality of life between the present first line DMD:s and Rituximab
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    A subject will be eligible for inclusion in this extension study if all of the following criteria apply:

    • Have completed the STRIX-MS trial (Eudra-CT 2010-023021-38).
    • Willing to comply with study procedures
    • In fertile females, willing to comply with effective contraceptive methods. These include birthcontrol pills, surgical sterilization of patient or partner or consistent use of condom by partner. Nonfertile women is defined as more than 5 years since menopaus or, in case of ambiguities, an FSH level above 30 IU/L
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A subject will not be eligible for inclusion in this study if any of the following criteria applies:

    • Pregnant or lactating women
    • Documented vulnerability to infections
    • Simultaneous treatment with other immunosuppressive drugs
    • Documented allergy or intolerance to Rituximab
    • Severe psychiatric condition
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is
    The proportion of patients undergoing the predefined study protocols over three years that fulfils the criteria “free from disease activity” defined as:
    o Free from clinical relapse
    o Free from contrast-enhancing MRI lesions
    o No more than one new or enlarged MRI lesion visible on T2-weighted images during the previous 12 month period
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The trial will run over a three year period with a possibility to continue the treatment decided on a case by case basis. Final evaluation of the results will be when all study participants have completed the full three year period.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary endpoints are:
    • The proportion of patients free from all signs of disease activity including, in addi-tion to the primary endpoint, no new T2 lesions during the whole study period and no increase in EDSS.
    - The period included in this analysis is from month 0 in the original STRIX-MS study, ie when Rituximab was administered in the first time.
    • The degree of brain atrophy development over the course of the whole study peri-od measured as BPF as compared with age-matched healthy controls
    • The levels of Neurofilament-light values in CSF analyses, which will be compared with age-matched healthy controls as well as before Rituximab treatment started.
    • The proportion of patients undergoing the predefined study protocol that because of disease activity will either change therapy or obtain additional Rituximab infu-sions.
    • To document the safety of Rituximab treatment during long-term treatment of RRMS patients with Rituximab using a target based treatment protocol.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The secondary endpoints will be finally evaluated also after three years when last subject has had its last visit
