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   36785   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6075   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The main objective was to evaluate the effect of steady-state Simeprevir (SMV) and Daclatasvir (DCV) on the steady-state pharmacokinetics of cyclosporine and tacrolimus when administered as a regimen containing SMV [150 milligram once a day (mg qd)] , DCV (60 mg qd) and Ribavirin (RBV) (1,000 to 1,200 mg per day) in post-orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) subjects with recurrent hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1b infection and to evaluate the efficacy of a 24-week treatment regimen containing SMV, DCV, and RBV with respect to the proportion of HCV genotype 1b infected post- OLT subjects achieving sustained virologic response 12 weeks after end of treatment (EOT) (SVR12).
    Protection of trial subjects
    The trial was performed in accordance with the principles of good clinical practices [GCP] as outlined in 21 code of federal regulations [CFR] Parts 50, 56, and 312 and the Declaration of Helsinki and its subsequent revisions, and the European Union Clinical Trials Directive that are consistent with Good Clinical Practices and applicable regulatory requirements. During the study, various safety evaluations were performed at different timepoints like clinical laboratory assessments (hematology, serum chemistry and urinalysis), vital signs, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) and physical examination, all adverse events were reported from signing the informed consent until the follow-up visit.

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    18 Sep 2013
    The amendement included the addition of precautionary language on photosensitivity to the Prohibitions and Restrictions section of the protocol. As a follow-up to a recommendation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it was decided to reintroduce the recommendations with regard to photosensitivity, in all Simeprevir (SMV) studies in which subjects were still being dosed with SMV and in future SMV studies.
    30 Jun 2014
    The amendment included changes based on Day 14 pharmacokinetic results from subjects enrolled in Part 1 of the study, subjects who received cyclosporine as immunosuppressant therapy were excluded from Part 2 of the study. Repeat intensive pharmacokinetic sampling to be performed in those Part 1 subjects receiving cyclosporine and whose Simeprevir (SMV) doses were adjusted was added. Repeat intensive pharmacokinetic sampling for SMV and Daclatasvir (DCV) in Part 2 subjects was added in case revision to the dose and/or dosing regimen of SMV and/or DCV were made based on the Week 4 interim analyses. Given the fact that, after review of the Phase 3 data, elevations in direct and indirect bilirubin observed in Phase 3 clinical studies were not considered clinically relevant, specific management of grade 4 isolated bilirubin elevations was updated. Subjects with isolated grade 4 bilirubin elevation in absence of evidence of hepatic decompensation could continue intake of study medication with close monitoring of further increases in bilirubin, or discontinue, at the discretion of the investigator. In addition, rash management guidelines were clarified for photosensitivity conditions. Background information on the study drug was updated (replacement HPC2002 data with data from Phase 2 study AI-444-062) and marketing status of SMV was added (approval US and other regions and ongoing procedures worldwide). Definitions of SVR and treatment failure were revised as per Heath Authority recommendations. Clarification that the screening period of 4 weeks started from the time of signing the Informed Consent Form (ICF) was added. The possibility to have additional interim analyses for Health Authority submission and publication purpose was added. It was clarified that one hepatitis C virus (HCV RNA) retest had to be performed as soon as possible if Week 4 HCV RNA is >100 IU/mL and that subjects could continue study drug if HCV RNA is ≤100 International Unit per at the retest.
