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   40628   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6628   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
    - To evaluate the efficacy of an an intravenous infusion of IGIV-C (total dose of 2g/kg administered over 2 consecutive days at a dose of 1 g/kg per day) in subjects with MG exacerbations by assessing the change in score of MG symptoms as measured by the QMG scale from baseline to Day 14
    - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of an IV infusion of IGIV-C (total dose of 2 g/kg administered over 2 consecutive days at a dose of 1 g/kg per day) in subjects with MG exacerbations.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To evaluate the efficacy of an IV infusion of IGIV-C (total dose of 2 g/kg administered over 2 days at a dose of 1 g/kg per day) in subjects with MG exacerbations by:
    • Percentage of subjects who experience a clinical improvement assessed by QMG from Baseline (Day 0) to Day 14 where clinical improvement is defined as at least 3 point decrease in QMG
    • Percentages of subjects who experience a clinical improvement assessed by MG - Activities of Daily Living (MG-ADL) from Baseline (Day 0) to Day 14 where clinical improvement is defined as at least 2-point decrease in MG-ADL
    • Percentages of subjects who experience a clinical improvement assessed by the MG Composite from Baseline (Day 0) to DAy 14 where clinical improvement is defined as at least 3 point decrease in the MG Composite
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    A subject must meet all the following inclusion criteria to be eligible for participation in this
    1. Male or female aged ≥18 years.
    2. Subjects must be willing and able to provide written informed consent (if applicable, a legally authorized representative may provide informed consent on behalf of the subject).
    3. Subjects who meet the clinical criteria for diagnosis of MG with an exacerbation defined as worsening of MG symptoms as defined by an MGFA classification IVb or V.
    4. Subjects on long-term (8 weeks) corticosteroid treatment for MG.
    5. Female subjects of child-bearing potential must have a negative test for pregnancy (human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)-based assay).
    6. Subjects must be willing to comply with all aspects of the clinical trial protocol, including blood sampling and long-term storage of extra samples, for the entire duration of the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A subject meeting any of the following exclusion criteria is NOT eligible for participation in the study:
    1. Subjects who have received immune globulin treatment given by IV, subcutaneous or intramuscular route within the last 30 days.
    2. Subjects with documentation of a lack of clinical response to IVIG therapy for MG.
    3. Subjects documented positive for antibodies directed against MuSK.
    4. Subjects with CS treatment initiated within the last 8 weeks or modified within the last 2 weeks.
    5. Subjects with PLEX within the last 30 days.
    6. Subjects with MG exacerbation attributable to change in medication or evident infection as defined by, but not limited to, the presence of at
    least one of the following diagnostic features: 1) axillary temperature ≥
    38°C, 2) positive blood culture of infective microorganism, 3) white
    blood cell count >12×109/L and differential white blood cell count of
    >10% band neutrophils (>1.2×109/L), and 4) pulmonary infiltrate with
    consolidation on chest Xray. Alternatively, other signs and symptoms
    may be considered for the diagnosis of evident infection
    according to the Investigator's judgement.
    7. Subjects with inadequate venous access.
    8. Subjects with a history of anaphylactic reactions or severe reactions to any blood-derived product.
    9. Subjects with a history of intolerance to any component of the investigational products (IPs).

    14. Subjects currently receiving anti-coagulation therapy.
    15. Subjects with a history of chronic alcoholism or illicit drug abuse (addiction) in the 12 months preceding the Screening Visit.
    16. Subjects with active psychiatric illness that interferes with compliance or communication with health care personnel.
    17.

    * True abstinence: When this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. (Periodic abstinence [e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods], declaration of abstinence for the duration of a trial, and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.)
    18. Subjects with any medical condition which makes the clinical trial participation unadvisable or which is likely to interfere with the evaluation of the study treatment and/or the satisfactory conduct of the clinical trial according to the Investigator’s judgment.
    19. Subjects currently receiving, or having received within 3 months prior to the Screening Visit, any investigational medicinal product or device.
    20. Subjects who are unlikely to adhere to the protocol requirements or are likely to be uncooperative or unable to provide a storage serum/plasma sample prior to the first IP infusion.
    21. Subjects with a known Immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency and anti-IgA serum antibodies.
