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   39185   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6421   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.

    Subject eligibility should be reviewed and documented by an appropriately qualified member of the investigator’s study team before subjects are included in the study.
    Subjects must meet all of the following inclusion criteria to be eligible for enrollment into the study:
    1. Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document indicating that the subject (or a legally acceptable representative) has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study.
    2. Subjects who are willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and other study procedures.
    3. Males and females ≥ 18 years of age where permitted by law.
    4. With primary hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia.
    5. For all clinical sites except for those in the Netherlands: Subjects must be on a stable dose of either simvastatin 40 mg or higher, rosuvastatin 10 mg or higher, atorvastatin 20 mg or higher, or pravastatin 40 mg or higher for at least 6 weeks prior to screening.
    - There should be no plans at the time of screening and randomization to modify the dose of statin for the duration of the trial.

    For clinical sites in the Netherlands only: Subjects must be on a maximally tolerated stable dose of either simvastatin, rosuvastatin, atorvastatin or pravastatin for at least 6 weeks prior to screening. No dose should be lower than simvastatin 40 mg, rosuvastatin 10 mg, atorvastatin 20 mg or pravastatin 40 mg.
    - There should be no plans at the time of screening and randomization to modify the dose of statin for the duration of the trial.
    - The maximally tolerated dose is either the highest dose the subject can tolerate or the highest dose the investigator determines can be safely prescribed.
    6. Subjects should be at high or very high risk of incurring a CV event, defined as:
    a. Known CVD or CVD risk equivalents:
    - Known history of CVD.
    - Coronary heart disease: history of acute myocardial infarction, or evidence of silent myocardial infarction or myocardial ischemia, or history of unstable angina and stable angina pectoris, or history of coronary procedures (coronary angioplasty and coronary artery surgery), or;
    - Other clinical atherosclerotic diseases: peripheral arterial disease, or abdominal aortic aneurysm, or carotid artery disease (symptomatic [eg, transient ischemic attack or stroke of carotid origin] or >50 percent stenosis on angiography or ultrasound), or likely other forms of clinical atherosclerotic disease (eg, renal artery disease), Type 2 or Type 1 diabetes, or;
    - Chronic kidney disease (CKD), defined as glomerular filtration rate (GFR) calculated by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formula between 30 and 60 mL/min/1.73m2 (inclusive).
    b. Presence of multiple risk factors:
    Subjects who do not have past CVD disease or CVD risk equivalents but have 3 or more of the risk factors from the list below:
    - Current cigarette smoking defined as any smoking for 30 days or more at the time of screening.
    - HDL-C <40 mg/dL (<1.0 mmol/L) at screening or TC/HDL-C ratio>/=6.
    - Family history of premature Coronary Heart Disease (CHD in male first-degree relative <55 years; CHD in female first-degree relative <65 years).
    - Age (men ≥55 years; women ≥65 years).
    - hs-CRP >2.0 mg/L at screening.
    7. Lipids should meet the following criteria on a background treatment with a statin:
    - Fasting LDL-C >/=100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L) at 2 screening visits (screening visits S1 and S3) and the value at the third screening visit (S3) within 7 days (±3 days) of randomization must not be lower or higher than 20% of this initial value (in order to control the variability related to the fasting LDL-C assay), as described in Section 7.1.
    Note: If fasting LDL-C at screening visit S3 is lower or higher than 20% of the initial value, LDL-C can be repeated once (within 7 days of randomization), and the subject is eligible if the value of this repeat test is within 20% (inclusive) of the value at screening visit S3.
    - All subjects must have fasting TG ≤400 mg/dL (4.51 mmol/L) at the third screening visit (S3).
    8. Male and female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception throughout the study and for at least 63 days after the last dose of assigned treatment. A subject is of childbearing potential if, in the opinion of the investigator, he/she is biologically capable of having children and is sexually active (Section 4.4.2).
    Female subjects who are not of childbearing potential (ie, meet at least one of the following criteria):
    - Have undergone a documented hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy;
    - Have medically confirmed ovarian failure or;
    - Achieved post-menopausal status, defined as: cessation of regular menses for at least 12 consecutive months with no alternative pathological or physiological cause; and have a serum follicule-stimulating hormone (FSH) level within the laboratory’s reference range for postmenopausal females.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects presenting with any of the following will not be included in the study:

If the blind has been broken and the Investigator knows (with documentation) that the subject received placebo, he/she can be included.
    3. Subjects with prior exposure to PF-04950615 or other investigational PCSK9 inhibitor.

Subjects receiving topical preparations at high concentrations over large body areas for a long period of time should be discussed with the medical monitor.
    18. Subjects taking prescription medications that are contraindicated with the use of statins. Refer to statin product labels for these medications.
    19. History of allergic or anaphylactic reaction to any therapeutic or diagnostic monoclonal antibody (IgG protein) or molecules made of components of monoclonal antibodies (eg, Enbrel® which contains the Fc portion of an antibody or Lucentis® which is a Fab).
    20. Subjects who are latex-sensitive (due to potential for exposure to latex or dry rubber in
    the pre-filled syringe cap during self administration).
    21. Any abnormal hematology values, clinical chemistries, urinalysis, or ECGs judged by the
    Investigator as clinically significant.

    End of Trial in a Member State (MS) of the EU is defined as the time at which it is deemed that sufficient subjects have been recruited and completed the study as stated in the regulatory application and ethics application in the MS. Poor recruitment by a MS is not a reason for premature termination but is considered a normal conclusion to the study in that MS.

    For all other participating countries it is defined as Last Subject Last Visit (LSLV).
