  • 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   37485   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6150   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).

    Pharmacogenomic research Study
    To perform exploratory investigation of pharmacogenomic samples (DNA and RNA) for drug response, mode of action, safety, disease, as well as the potential development of diagnostic tests as appropriate.
    Specific purposes of this study include:
    • Identifying genetic reasons why certain people respond differently to namilumab.
    • Finding out more information about how namilumab works.
    • Generating information needed for research, development, and regulatory approval of tests to predict response to namilumab.

    and
    c) Imaging (US power doppler) evidence of moderate to severe inflammation of at least 1 MCP joint of the dominant hand and/or 1 joint of the dominant wrist at Screening and Baseline Visit.
    A male subject who is nonsterilized* and sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential* agrees to use adequate contraception* from signing of informed consent throughout the duration of the study until the end of the safety follow up (20 weeks after last dose).
    A female subject of childbearing potential* who is sexually active with a nonsterilized* male partner agrees to use routinely adequate contraception* from signing of informed consent throughout the duration of the study until the end of the safety follow up (20 weeks after last dose).
    The subject is receiving current treatment with MTX for RA:
    • Received weekly MTX for at least 3 months prior to the Screening Visit, AND
    • Received treatment with MTX ≥ 15 mg/week but ≤ 25 mg/week at a stable dose via the same route of administration and formulation for at least 8 weeks prior to Baseline Visit, OR
    • A stable dose for at least 8 weeks of MTX of ≥7.5 mg/week is acceptable, if the MTX dose has been reduced for reasons of documented intolerance to MTX.
    The subject is willing to continue or initiate treatment with oral folic acid (at least 5 mg/week) or equivalent and be treated during the entire trial (mandatory comedication for MTX treatment).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
