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   43851   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7283   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.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Partial Onset Seizures
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Epilepsy
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Nervous System Diseases [C10]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Lacosamide (LCM) administered concomitantly with 1 to 3 Anti-epileptic Drugs (AED(s)) in Japanese and Chinese subjects with or without additional VNS who currently have uncontrolled partial-onset seizures with or without secondary generalization.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of LCM, the dose response relationships of the efficacy and safety of LCM, and the steady state plasma concentrations of LCM.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Subject has had an Electroencephalogram (EEG) and a brain Computerized Tomography (CT) scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) exam consistent with a Diagnosis of Epilepsy with Partial-Onset Seizures according to the International Classification of Epileptic Seizures (1981)
    - Subject must have been observed to have Partial-Onset Seizures for at least the previous 2 years despite prior therapy with at least 2 Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs)(concurrently or sequentially) and must have been observed to have on average at least 4 Partial-Onset Seizures per 28 days with a seizure-free phase no longer than 21 days in the 8-Week Period prior to entry into the Baseline Period. In the case of Simple Partial Seizures, only those with motor signs will be counted towards meeting the inclusion criterion
    - Subjects must be on a stable dose regimen of at least 1, but no more than 3 AEDs (concurrent stable Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) is not counted as an AED). The VNS must have been in place for at least 6 months prior to study entry. The dosage of concomitant AED therapy and the settings of the VNS must be kept constant for a period of at least 4 weeks prior to entry into the Baseline Period
    - Minimum Body Weight of 40 kg
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Subject has a lifetime history of suicide attempt (including an active attempt, interrupted attempt, or aborted attempt) or has a suicidal ideation in the past 6 months as indicated by a positive response ("Yes") to either Question 4 or Question 5 of the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) at Screening
    - Subject has a current or previous diagnosis of Pseudo-Seizures, Conversion Disorders, or other non-epileptical events that could be confused with Seizures
    - 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 8-Week Period prior to Visit 1
    - Subject has a history of Primary Generalized Seizures
    - Subject with a history of Status Epilepticus within the 12-Months Period prior to Visit 1
    - Subject who underwent surgery for Epilepsy within the 2 Years Period prior to Visit 1
    - Subjects with cardiac, renal, hepatic, endocrinological dysfunction or psychiatric illness that may impair reliable participation in the study or necessitate the use of medication not allowed by the protocol
