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   42782   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7047   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

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language

    E.1.2Version 19.0

    E.1.2Classification code 10021240
    E.1.2Term Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
    E.1.2System Organ Class 10038738 - Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The principal question is whether omeprazole reduces cough (quantified objectively) in patients with IPF, when compared with placebo.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary questions include whether omeprazole (as compared with placebo):
    - causes less acid reflux and non-acid reflux
    - reduces symptoms of cough and reflux
    - makes any difference to lung function
    - reduces lung inflammation
    - is associated with a difference in the distance the patient can walk in 6 minutes
    - changes the frequency of lung infection
    - increases side effects.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    A pragmatic clinical definition of IPF will be used, in which recruited patients must fulfill all of the following criteria

    • IPF is considered the most likely diagnosis by the regional interstitial lung disease multidisciplinary team meeting (ILD-MDT)
    • history of cough, with or without exertional dyspnoea
    • high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan features of honeycombing in a predominantly basal and subpleural distribution
    • bibasal crackles on auscultation
    • features of a restrictive ventilatory defect (vital capacity (VC) <90% predicted and/or diffusion factor for carbon monoxide (Tco) <90% predicted)
    • aged 40-85 years

    Patients with radiological emphysema will be eligible so long as the diagnosis of IPF is secure, ie all the features above are satisfied.

    If the regional ILD-MDT cannot reach a clear consensus as to the diagnosis, the case will be referred to 2 experts in ILD from outside the region, and the patient will be eligible if both consider IPF to be the most likely diagnosis.
    Patients taking a PPI during screening will potentially be eligible. In these cases the indication for on-going treatment will be reviewed.
    • Patients taking short courses (eg 2 months) of PPI will be eligible once the treatment has been discontinued for a minimum of 1 month.
    • There are few licensed indications for long-term omeprazole other than Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Therefore, unless there is a known diagnosis of Zollinger-Ellison or a history of significant dyspepsia or gastrointestinal bleeding during a previous discontinuation of PPI, patients on long-term PPI will be asked to consider a trial of supervised discontinuation.
    If patients taking omeprazole (or a related stomach treatment) wish to take part, we shall contact the GP to check that the GP is aware and in agreement. The patient will then be asked to sign a consent form to agree to try a period off treatment for 2 weeks. If symptoms return during that 2- week period the patient should go back on treatment and not take part in the study. If patients manage well without the treatment for 2 weeks, they will be asked to sign a second consent form before starting the study.

    Patients taking antacids, prokinetics or raft alginates at the time of screening will be eligible if they have been off these treatments for a period of at least 2 weeks.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • known allergy to omeprazole or other PPI
    • concomitant use of warfarin, diazepam, phenytoin or ketoconazole
    • concomitant use of a regular PPI, antacid, prokinetic or raft alginate during the trial period.
    • history of upper respiratory tract infection, lower respiratory tract infection or exacerbation of IPF in the 4 weeks before starting study drugs
    • active trial of treatment for IPF (eg prednisolone, pirfenidone, nintedanib, N-acetylcysteine) started in the 4 weeks before starting study drugs
    • documented history of hepatic cirrhosis
    • pregnancy or lactation
    • ILD-MDT considers the most likely cause of the patient’s ILD to be a condition other than IPF, for example rheumatoid lung, systemic sclerosis ILD, asbestosis, chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis, sarcoidosis, etc.
    • concurrent enrolment in a trial of a CTIMP for IPF

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    In the absence of any confirmed benefits for omeprazole in IPF, or any licensed indication for long-term omeprazole in IPF, there are no plans to routinely prescribe PPI after the study ends. However, where patients give a clear history of reflux during the study, we have the capacity to prescribe omeprazole after the study ends on a case-by-case basis. All patients in the study will be followed up in the Interstitial Lung Disease Clinic, where enquiry about reflux symptoms is routine.
