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   42564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary Efficacy Objective:
    To compare the efficacy of icatibant with placebo in the treatment of angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I)-induced angioedema based on the Time to Meeting Discharge Criteria (TMDC) endpoint.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Key Secondary Efficacy Objective:
    To compare the efficacy of icatibant with placebo in the treatment of ACE-I-induced angioedema based on the Time to Onset of Symptom Relief (TOSR) endpoint.

    Pharmacokinetic Objective:
    To characterize the pharmacokinetic (PK) properties of icatibant and its major metabolites (M1 and M2 [amino acids 1-5 and amino acids 7-10, respectively]) in patients with ACEI-induced angioedema.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female, 18 years of age or older.
    2. Patient is currently being treated with an ACE inhibitor.
    3. Patient presenting with an ACE inhibitor-induced angioedema attack of the head and/or neck region within 12 hours of onset (must be sufficiently less than 12 hours to allow study drug to be given with 12 hours of onset).
    4. Angioedema must be considered at least moderate in severity for at least one of the four primary efficacy angioedema-associated upper airway symptoms (difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, voice changes, tongue swelling).
    5. Patient must have voluntarily signed an Institutional Review Board/Independent Ethics Committee-approved informed consent form after all relevant aspects of the study have been explained and discussed with the patient.
    6. Females must have a negative urine pregnancy test prior to administration of the study medication, with the exception of those females who have had a total hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy, or who are 2 years post-menopausal.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Patient has a diagnosis of angioedema of other etiology (eg, hereditary or acquired angioedema, allergic angioedema [eg, food, insect bite or sting, evident clinical response to antihistamines and/or corticosteroids], anaphylaxis, trauma, abscess or
    infection or associated disease, local inflammation, local tumor, post-operative or post-radiogenic edema, salivary gland disorders, other [non-ACE inhibitor] druginduced angioedema).
    2. Patients with a family history of recurrent angioedema.
    3. Patients who have had a previous episode(s) of angioedema while not on ACE inhibitor therapy.
    4. Patients with acute urticaria (itchy, erythematous wheals).
    5. Patients who have an intervention to support the airway (eg, intubation, tracheotomy, cricothyrotomy) due to the current attack of angioedema.
    6. Patient has any of the following vascular conditions that, in the judgment of the investigator, would be a contraindication to participation in the study.
     Unstable angina pectoris or acute myocardial ischemia.
     Hypertensive urgency or emergency (diastolic blood pressure [DBP] >120 mm Hg or systolic blood pressure [SBP] >180 mm Hg).
     Within 1 month of a stroke or transient ischemic attack.
     New York Heart Association (NYHA) heart failure Class IV.
    7. Patient has a serious or acute condition or illness that, in the judgment of the investigator, would interfere with evaluating the safety and/or efficacy assessments of the study.
    8. Patient is pregnant or breast feeding.
    9. Patient has participated in another investigational study in the past 30 days.
    10. Patient is unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the protocol, or is unlikely or unable to comply with the protocol assessments, or is unlikely to complete the study for any reason.
    11. Patients who are not suitable for the study in the opinion of the investigator.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary efficacy endpoint:
    Investigators will assess the severity of the following angioedema-associated upper airway symptoms: difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, voice changes, and tongue swelling. The assessment will be based on a 5-point severity scale from 0 (absent) to 4 (very severe).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Screening, 0.5 hr, every hour up to 8 hrs.
    During a stay longer than 8 hours in the emergency department or hospital, airway symptom assessments by the investigator will continue and be perfiormed every 2 hours from >8 to 24 hours and every 3 hours from >24 hours, until Time to Meeting Discharge Criteria (TMDC) endpoint has been met and the patient can be discharged.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Safety Assessments:
    The following safety assessments will be performed at the specified time points:
     Physical examinations at baseline and at 8 hours after study drug administration. If the patient remains in the ED or hospital longer than 8 hours, an additional physical examination will be performed at discharge.
     Vital signs including blood pressure at baseline and at 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 hours after study drug administration. If the patient remains in the ED or hospital longer than 8 hours, vital signs will be performed at 3-hour intervals and at discharge.
     ECG at baseline and at 0.75 and 8 hours after study drug administration.
     Serum chemistry and hematology blood tests, and urinalysis at baseline and at 8 hours after study drug administration.
     Injection site reaction assessments at 0.5, 2, 4, and 8 hours after study drug
