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   43839   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7280   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of VX-661 in combination with Ivacaftor in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who were heterozygous for the F508del mutation on the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene and a second CFTR allele with a gating defect that was clinically demonstrated to be Ivacaftor responsive
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study was conducted in accordance with the ethical principles stated in the Declaration of Helsinki and the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) Guideline for Good Clinical Practice (GCP).

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    The study consisted of 2 periods: an Ivacaftor Run-in Period and an Active Comparator Treatment Period. Subjects were randomized in a ratio of 1:1 to receive either VX-661/ivacaftor combination therapy or ivacaftor monotherapy for 8 weeks during the Active Comparator Treatment Period after completion of 4 weeks Ivacaftor Run-in Period.

    Notes
    [1] - The number of subjects starting the period is not consistent with the number completing the preceding period. It is expected the number of subjects starting the subsequent period will be the same as the number completing the preceding period.
    Justification: Two subjects who completed the Run-in period did not enter the active comparator period.
