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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of macitentan as compared to placebo in patients with PoPH
    - To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of macitentan and its active metabolite ACT-132577 in subjects with PoPH
    - Evaluar el efecto de macitentán, comparado con un placebo,
    sobre las características hemodinámicas cardiopulmonares, la tensión en la vena porta hepática, la intensidad de la enfermedad y la capacidad de realizar ejercicio en pacientes con HPoP.
    - Evaluar la seguridad y la tolerabilidad de macitentán comparado con un placebo en pacientes con HPoP.
    - Evaluar las características farmacocinéticas (FC) del macitentán y de su metabolito activo, el ACT-132577, en pacientes con HPoP.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    PK sub-study

    At least 20 patients eligible for the open-label treatment period will be enrolled. The plasma PK parameters will be derived by non-compartmental analysis of the plasma concentration-time profiles.
    PK endpoints are for both macitentan and ACT-132577:
    - The area under the plasma concentration-time curve during one dosing interval (AUCt).
    - Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) during a dosing interval.
    - The time to reach maximum plasma concentration (tmax) during a dosing interval.
    Subestudio FC

    Se inscribirán al menos 20 pacientes aptos para el periodo de tratamiento sin enmascaramiento. Las variables FC plasmáticas se inferirán del análisis no compartimental de los valores de concentración plasmática frente al tiempo. Los valores correspondientes a la concentración máxima en plasma (Cmáx) y al área bajo la curva de concentración plasmática frente al tiempo durante el intervalo de dosis (ABCt) se supone que siguen una distribución normal logarítmica. Los criterios de valoración FC son los mismos para macitentán y para ACT-132577:
    - Área bajo la curva de concentración plasmática frente al tiempo durante un intervalo de dosis (ABCt).
    - Concentración máxima en plasma (Cmáx) durante un intervalo de dosis.
    - Periodo de tiempo hasta alcanzar la concentración máxima en plasma (tmáx) durante un intervalo de dosis.
