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   43888   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7297   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the long term effectiveness of Levetiracetam (LEV) monotherapy on Treatment Failure Rate in subjects with newly diagnosed partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalized seizure, compared to Oxcarbazepine (OXC) monotherapy over 50 weeks from the first dose of study medication and to demonstrate that monotherapy with LEV (1,000 to 3,000 mg/day) is non-inferior to monotherapy with OXC (900 to 2,400 mg/day).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To evaluate the efficacy of LEV monotherapy on Time to First Seizure in subjects with newly diagnosed partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalized seizures compared to OXC monotherapy
    - To evaluate the efficacy of LEV monotherapy on 24-week Seizure Freedom Rate for 24 consecutive weeks during the treatment period at any time and 48-week Seizure-Freedom Rate during the treatment period
    - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of LEV monotherapy in subjects with newly diagnosed partial onset seizures with or without secondary generalized seizure compared to OXC monotherapy
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Male or female subjects from 16 to 80 years, inclusive. Vulnerable subjects (e.g., under 20 years or subject with learning disability but judged to be capable to understand) may only be included where legally permitted and ethically accepted
    - Subjects with newly or recently diagnosed epilepsy having experienced unprovoked partial seizures (IA, IB, IC with clear focal origin), that are classifiable according to the International Classification of Epileptic seizure (1981). Undiscriminated subjects between IC and IIE could be included
    - Subjects with at least 2 unprovoked seizures separated by a minimum of 48 hours in the year preceding randomization out of which at least 1 unprovoked seizure in the 6 months preceding randomization
    - Subjects with documented evidence of EEG and brain MRI or CT scan in medical records which were performed within 1 year prior to Visit 1 (V1)
    - Subjects have no treatment with anti-epileptic drugs in the 6 months preceding this study. The treatment for acute seizure control is acceptable with a maximum of 2 weeks duration and if the treatment was stopped at least 1 week before V1. For Phenobarbital and Phenobarbital derivatives, a minimum of 4 weeks wash-out is requested before V1
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Subject has a current or previous diagnosis of pseudoseizures, conversion disorders, or other non-epileptic ictal events which could be confused with seizures
    - Subject taking 1 or more of the following medications on a regular basis within 28 days prior to Visit 1: neuroleptics, monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors and narcotic analgesics
    - Subject taking any immunosuppressant within 28 days prior to Visit 1
    - Subject has a history of suicide attempt, has received professional counseling for suicidal ideation, or is currently experiencing active suicidal ideation
    - Subject has a seizure disorder characterized primarily by isolated auras (ie, simple partial seizures without observable motor signs)
    - Subject suffering from seizures other than partial (IA, IB, IC, with clear focal origin) seizures
    - Subject has a history of status epilepticus within last 3-month period prior to Visit 1
    - Subject has seizures that are uncountable due to clustering (ie, an episode lasting less than 30 minutes in which several seizures occur with such frequency that the initiation and completion of each individual seizure cannot be distinguished) during the 12-week period prior to Visit 1 and/or during the Screening Period
    - Body weight is lower than 40 kg (< 40 kg)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Percentage of subjects with a treatment failure, defined as (1) dropout due to related adverse event, lack of efficacy or need for addition of another Antiepileptic Drug (AED), or (2) need of a 1-step down-titration after 50 weeks from the first dose of study medication
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Week 0 (First Dose) to Week 50
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - Time to the first seizure defined as the time from the first dose of medication to the occurrence of the first seizure during the 48 weeks Treatment Period
    - Percentage of subjects who achieved seizure freedom for 24 consecutive weeks during the 48 weeks Treatment Period at any time
    - Percentage of subjects who achieved seizure freedom during the 48 weeks Treatment Period
