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   41233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6758   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Female patients of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test.
    20. Male patient and female spouse/partners who are of childbearing potential must be using highly effective contraception consisting of two forms of birth control (one of which must be a barrier method) to avoid pregnancy for the entire study period and for 90 days post study participation.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the change from baseline to the Week 8 visit of the natural log (ln) of the Up/C. Week 0/Randomization (baseline) and Week 8 values will be an average of two Up/C measurements at each time point.

    Primary Safety Objectives
    * To assess the safety and tolerability of Sparsentan over a range of doses by double-blind monitoring of body weight, peripheral edema, blood pressure, echocardiographic functional parameters, as well as related signs and symptoms
    * To compare the occurrence of adverse events in the double-blind Sparsentan treated patients versus active control Irbesartan
    * To compare medications required to control edema and blood pressure in the double-blind management of Sparsentan-treated patients versus Irbesartan active control
