Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male aged 6 to 15 years, inclusive.
    2. For treated patients (all patients in Part 1 and 12 additional treated patients in Part 2), established clinical diagnosis of DMD with a mutation amenable to exon 53 skipping (e.g. deletions of exons such as 42-52, 45-52, 47-52, 48-52, 49-52, 50-52, 52, or 54-58) as documented by a genetic report from an accredited laboratory confirming deletion endpoints by multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) or sequencing.
    3. For Part 2 untreated control patients, established clinical diagnosis of DMD with confirmed genomic deletion of exon(s) not amenable to exon 53 skipping as documented by an accredited laboratory and genomic methodology.
    4. Have intact right and left biceps muscles or an alternative upper arm muscle group.
    5. Have stable cardiac and pulmonary function that, in the Investigator’s opinion, is unlikely to decompensate over the duration of the study.
    6. Achieve a mean 6MWT distance of ≥250 meters at both the Screening and Baseline visits (prior to Week 1). The mean 6MWT distance at the Screening and Baseline visits is the average of 2 separate assessments on 2 consecutive days at each visit. The Baseline mean (average of Baseline Day 1 and 2) must be within 15% of the Screening mean (average of Screening Day 1 and 2). (Personal assistance or use of any assistive devices for ambulation is not permitted during the 6MWT).
    7. Patients must meet at least one of the following two criteria:
    • NSAA (North Star Ambulatory Assessment) total score >17; or
    • Rise (Gowers') time < 7 seconds
    8. Have been on a stable dose or dose equivalent of oral corticosteroids for at least 24 weeks prior to Week 1 and the dose is expected to remain constant (except for modifications to accommodate changes in weight) throughout the study. Note: patients are allowed to take other medication (excluding other ribonucleic acid [RNA] antisense or gene therapy agents) including angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blocking agents (ARBs), β-blockers, and potassium provided they have been on a stable dose for at least 12 weeks prior Week 1 and the dose is expected to remain constant throughout the study.
    9. Have (a) parent(s) or legal guardian(s) who is (are) able to understand and comply with the study procedure requirements.
    10. Be willing to provide informed assent and have (a) parent(s) or legal guardian(s) who is (are) willing to provide written informed consent for the patient to participate in the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Use of any pharmacologic treatment, other than corticosteroids, that might have an effect on muscle strength or function within 12 weeks prior to study entry (e.g., growth hormone, anabolic steroids).
    2. Previous treatment with the experimental agents BMN-195 (SMT C1100) or PRO053.
    3. Current or previous treatment with any other experimental treatments within 12 weeks prior to study entry. Untreated patients only can be enrolled concurrently in other non-interventional trials, or in interventional trials in which participants are known to be treated with standard-of-care medication, provided they do not interfere with study assessments performed in Study 4053-101, and the patient meets all the protocol-required entry criteria.
    4. A left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of <50% (or equivalent fractional shortening) based on the screening ECHO and QTc (Fridericia’s correction) >450 msec.
    5. A forced vital capacity (FVC) <50% of predicted value or requirement for nocturnal ventilation.
    6. Major surgery within 3 months prior to Week 1 or orthopedic surgery planned for any time during this study which would interfere with the ability to perform outcome measures.
    7. Planned use of any aminoglycoside antibiotic or statin within 12 weeks of Week 1 or need for use of an aminoglycoside antibiotic or statin during the study.
    8. Presence of other clinically significant illness, for example significant cardiac, pulmonary, hepatic, renal, hematologic, immunologic, behavioral disorder or malignancy.
    9. Loss of ≥30 degrees of plantar flexion from the normal range of movement at the ankle joint due to contracture (i.e. fixed loss of >10 degrees plantar flexion from plantigrade assuming normal range of dorsiflexion of 20 degrees).
    10. Change in contracture treatment such as serial casting, contracture control devices, night splints, stretching exercises (passive, active, self) within 3 months prior to enrollment, or expected need for such intervention during the study.
    11. Prior or ongoing medical condition that, in the Investigator’s opinion, could interfere with the patient’s participation in the study.
