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   36603   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6045   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).
     
    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 correlation of serum soluble ST2 levels with endoscopic activity (endoscopic Mayo score) at week 6 in moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    treatment.

    - To evaluate the correlation of serum soluble ST2 with histological activity (Geboes index) at
    week 6 in moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - Evaluate correlation of serum solubleS T2 levels with endoscopic activity
    (Mayo score) at Wk16 in moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    - Evaluate correlation of serum soluble ST2 levels with histological activity (Geboes
    index) at week 16 in moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    - Correlate serum soluble ST2 levels with fecal calprotectin, at wk 6 and wk16 in
    moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    - Correlate serum soluble ST2 with clinical activity (total Mayo score) at wk6 and wk16 in moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    - Evaluate the potential of serum soluble ST2 as a predictor of endoscopic response
    (endoscopic Mayo score) to golimumab in moderate to severe UC subjects
    - Evaluate correlation between serum soluble ST2 levels with maintenance of
    endoscopic response (endoscopic Mayo score) to golimumab
    - Correlate Mayo endoscopic score with UCEIS overall score at wk6 and wk16 in
    moderate to severe UC subjects under golimumab
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Merck will conduct Future Biomedical Research on DNA (blood)
    specimens collected during this clinical trial. Such research is for
    biomarker testing to address emergent questions not described
    elsewhere in the protocol (as part of the main trial) and will only be
    conducted on specimens from appropriately consented subjects. The
    objective of collecting specimens for Future Biomedical Research is to
    explore and identify biomarkers that inform the scientific understanding
    of diseases and/or their therapeutic treatments. The overarching goal is
    to use such information to develop safer, more effective drugs, and/or to
    ensure that subjects receive the correct dose of the correct drug at the
    correct time.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects with a diagnosis of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis will be selected to participate in the trial.

    Inclusion criteria: Age 18 years or older at time of enrollment; diagnosis of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis at inclusion (defined as a clinical Mayo score ≥6) including endoscopy that shows inflammation as judged by a Mayo endoscopy score ≥2; subject is eligible to receive golimumab as per product monograph; signed the informed consent
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Exclusion criteria: as per golimumab’s product monograph; history of asthma, autoimmune
    diseases, hypertension.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    - endoscopic activity of disease (measured by endoscopy Mayo subscore) at 6 weeks in UC
    subjects receiving golimumab;
    - histological activity (measured by Geboes index score) at 6 weeks in UC subjects receiving
    golimumab.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    6 weeks
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - the correlation between serum soluble ST2 with endoscopic activity of disease (measured
    by endoscopy Mayo subscore) at 16 weeks in UC subjects receiving golimumab, through
    the Spearman correlation coefficient;

    - the correlation between serum soluble ST2 histological activity (measured by Geboes index
    score) at 16 weeks in UC subjects receiving golimumab, through the Spearman correlation
    coefficient.

    - Serum soluble ST2 levels at baseline, Week 6 and Week 16 will be correlated with fecal
    calprotectin levels at baseline, week 6 and week 16 through Pearson correlation coefficient
    or Spearman correlation coefficient in case the normality assumption is not verified. The two
    biomarkers will be categorized by the cut-offs and Cohen's kappa coefficient will be
    obtained.

    - Serum soluble ST2 levels at baseline, week 6 and week 16 will be correlated with clinical
    activity (total Mayo score), through Spearman correlation coefficient.

    - Comparative analyses of means (active disease versus inactive disease at week 6) with
    serum ST2 at baseline and change between baseline and week 6.

    - Comparative analyses of subjects who achieved response at week 6 and maintained
    through week 16 versus subjects who did not maintain response, regarding serum soluble
    ST2 at baseline, week 6 and change between baseline and week 6. ROC curve analysis of
    the serum soluble ST2 at week 6 regarding maintenance of response between week 6 and
    16 will be performed. This exploratory analysis will detect the cut-off levels of the serum
    soluble ST2 at week 6 associated with maintenance of response.
