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   36108   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5935   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The principle objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of Lcr Regenerans® by comparing the rate of clinical recurrence bacteriologically confirmed by mycological tests occurring in the treatment period or in the 5 months following discontinuation of the study treatment in patients with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis treated with Lcr Regenerans® according to a 1-cycle treatment regimen versus placebo.
    The efficacy of Lcr Regenerans® is compared to the efficacy of placebo.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are to assess the efficacy and safety of Lcr Regenerans® by comparing therapeutic agent versus placebo using the same treatment regimen:
    1. Efficacy is assessed by comparing the time before the first clinical recurrence confirmed by mycological tests. The time before the first recurrence is calculated from visit V2.
    2. Efficacy is assessed by comparing the number of episodes of clinical recurrence confirmed by mycological tests per patient observed during the trial.
    3. The same criteria as those defined in the principle and secondary objectives (1 to 2), but including only episodes of recurrence related to Candida albicans
    4. Clinical safety of treatment
    5. The investigator’s opinion of overall safety
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Disease-related criteria:
    - Patients with recurrent vulvo-vginal candidiasis, defined by the existence of at least 4 episodes of VVC during the previous year including the episode which was the subject of the screening visit
    In addition to the current episode, at least one episode that occurred in the previous two years should also be documented by mycological examination.)
    - Patients with acute vulvovaginitis characterised by the presence of the following clinical criteria (i at V1: symptoms of pruritus, vulvovaginal signs such as erythema, vaginal discharge
    - Patients with a positive mycological examination at V1
    - Patients who are clinically cured at the end of Day 8 after treatment with MONAZOL Ovule (one ovule at bedtime) and so just after treatment with MONAZOL cream (treatment lasting 8 days).

    Relating to the population:
    - Women of childbearing age:
    Urinary pregnancy test negative
    Use of a contraceptive method considered effective by the investigator (except spermicides) throughout the test
    - Patient / legal representative speak and read the local language and having been informed of the study and has voluntarily signed an Informed Consent Form
    - Patient / legal representative affiliated with a social insurance scheme
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    - Patients with a negative mycological examination at V1
    - No adequate documentation of earlier episodes to confirm the recurrent character of the VVC (4 episodes in one year, two of which documented a mycological examination in the past two years [and, in addition to the current episode, at least one episode occurred in the previous two years should also be documented in a mycological examination])
    Relating to treatment:
    - Taking systemic antifungals (particularly Fluconazole, see the list in 17.2) in the month prior to the screening visit to prevent recurrence, (treatment of an acute episode of VVC is not an exclusion criterion).
    - Use of probiotics (see the list in 17.2) in the 3 months preceding the screening visit.
    - Use of prebiotics (acidifying) (see the list in 17.2) in the 15 days preceding the screening visit.

    Relating to the population:
    - Patients unable to comply with the constraints of the protocol.
    - Breastfeeding women.
    - Patients with bleeds for more than 12 days per month.
    - Patients who have taken part in a clinical study in the last month preceding inclusion in the present protocol.
    - Patients with severe disease, whether acute or chronic, deemed by the investigator to be incompatible with participation in the trial or a serious condition which is life-threatening in the short term.
    - Immunocompromised patients.
    - Patients with a previous illness which, according to the investigator, may interfere with the results of the study or expose the patient to an additional risk.
    - Patients linguistically (unable to speak or write French) or mentally unable to understand and sign the Informed Consent Form.
    - Patients deprived of their liberty by administrative or legal decision or under guardianship.
