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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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
    Determine whether SOM0226 induces TTR stabilization by evaluating whether treatment with SOM0226 prevents urea-induced denaturation of tetrameric TTR.
    Determinar si SOM0226 (tolcapona) induce la estabilización de TTR en voluntarios sanos, en pacientes con polineuropatía amiloide familiar (FAP) y en pacientes portadores asintomáticos, impidiendo la desnaturalización de TTR inducida por urea.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    TTR stabilization will be measured by determining the concentration of tetrameric TTR after denaturation. The ratio of TTR tetramer after denaturation / TTR tetramer before denaturation of plasma samples from treated subjects will be compared to their baseline ratio. TTR stabilization will be determined as percentage of the baseline ratio.

    TTR stabilization will be measured in plasma samples obtained from each participant before first dose and at different times during each treatment period. In terms of assessing efficacy, a positive result will be a TTR stabilization value superior to 20%.
    La estabilización de TTR se mide mediante la determinación de la concentración de TTR tetramérica después de la desnaturalización. La relación de TTR tetrámero después de desnaturalización versus TTR antes de la desnaturalización de las muestras de plasma de los sujetos tratados, se comparará con su relación de línea de base. La estabilización de TTR se determina como porcentaje de la relación de la línea de base.

    La estabilización de TTR se mide en muestras de plasma obtenidas de cada participante antes de la primera dosis y en diferentes momentos durante cada período de tratamiento. En términos de evaluación de la eficacia, un resultado positivo será un valor de estabilización TTR superior a 20%.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Phase A (24 hours) and Phase B (32 hours). Between these two phases there is a washout period of 6 weeks (+-2 weeks)
    Fase A (24 horas) y Fase B (32 horas). Entre estas dos fases hay un periodo de lavado de 6 semanas (+- 2 semanas)
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - The pharmacodynamics characteristics of SOM0226 will be assessed to determine which plasma SOM0226:TTR molar ratio is needed to reach a plateau of TTR stabilization.
    - The concentration of SOM0226 will be determined in all
    plasma samples obtained at different times during each
    treatment period.
    - The concentration of TTR will be determined in all
    plasma samples, and the molar ratio SOM0226:TTR in
    each sample will be calculated.
    - Safety will be assessed by ALT and AST liver function measures in samples obtained at the end of each treatment phase (24 hours in Phase A and 32 hours in Phase B).
    - Las características farmacodinámicas de SOM0226 serán evaluadas para determinar qué relación molar plasma SOM0226:TTR en plasma es necesaria para obtener la máxima estabilización de TTR.
                         - Se determinará la concentración de SOM0226 en todas
    las muestras de plasma obtenidas en diferentes
    tiempos durante cada período de tratamiento.
                         - Se determinará la concentración de TTR en todas las
    muestras de plasma, y la relación molar SOM0226:TTR se
    calculará en cada muestra.
    - La seguridad se evaluará por medidas de la función hepática (ALT y AST) en muestras obtenidas al final de cada fase de tratamiento (24 horas en la fase A y 32 horas en la fase B).
