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   42587   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7012   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.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Subject must have a minimum PDSS-2 total score of 20 at Baseline assessment.
    2. Subject must have a diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson's disease according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society (UKPDS) Brain Bank Criteria. See Appendix C for UKPDS.
    3. Subject demonstrates persistent motor fluctuations in spite of individually optimized treatment.
    4. The subject's Parkinson's disease is levodopa-responsive.
    5. Subject has had optimal treatment with available anti-PD medication and their motor symptoms are judged inadequately controlled on this optimized treatment. Optimized treatment is defined as the maximum therapeutic effect obtained with pharmacological antiparkinsonian therapies when no further improvement is expected regardless of any additional manipulations of levodopa and/or other antiparkinsonian medication. This will be based on the Investigator's clinical judgment.
    6. Subject and/or if applicable, their care-partner must be able to complete the Subject Dosing Diary and must be able to demonstrate the ability to operate, manipulate and care for the infusion pump and tubing.
    1. Los pacientes deben tener una puntuación total como mínimo de 20 en la PDSS-2 en la evaluación basal.
    2. Los pacientes deben tener un diagnóstico de enfermedad de Parkinson idiopática conforme a los criterios del United Kingdom Parkinson?s Disease Society (UKPDS). Véanse los criterios de la UKPDS en el apéndice C.
    3. Los pacientes deben presentar fluctuaciones motoras persistentes a pesar del tratamiento óptimo personalizado.
    4. Presentar enfermedad de Parkinson sensible a levodopa.
    5. El paciente ha recibido tratamiento óptimo con los antiparkinsonianos disponibles y el control de los síntomas motores conseguido con él se considera insuficiente. Por tratamiento óptimo se entiende el tratamiento farmacológico con el que se obtiene el máximo efecto terapéutico, de manera que ya no se prevé conseguir más mejoría aunque se modifique la administración de levodopa o de otros antiparkinsonianos. Será el investigador quien determine, según su criterio clínico, si se ha alcanzado el tratamiento óptimo.
    6. El paciente o cuando proceda, su cuidador, debe ser capaz de rellenar el diario de administración del paciente y de manejar, manipular y cuidar la bomba de infusión y la sonda.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Subject's PD diagnosis is unclear or there is a suspicion that the subject has a parkinsonian syndrome such as secondary parkinsonism (e.g., caused by drugs, toxins, infectious agents, vascular disease, trauma, brain neoplasm), parkinson-plus syndrome (e.g., Multiple System Atrophy, Progressive supranuclear Palsy, Diffuse Lewy Body disease) or other neurodegenerative disease that might mimic the symptoms of PD.
    2. Subject has undergone neurosurgery for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
    3. Subject has any neurological deficit that might interfere with the study assessments (e.g., hemiparesis).
    4. Known hypersensitivity to levodopa, carbidopa or radiopaque material.
    5. Subject has contraindications to levodopa, (e.g., narrow angle glaucoma, malignant melanoma).
    6. Subject experiencing clinically significant sleep attacks or clinically significant impulsive behavior (e.g., pathological gambling, hypersexuality) at any point during the three months prior to the Screening evaluation) as judged by the Principal Investigator.
    7.Subject has undergone apomorphine continuous infusion for the treatment of Parkinson's disease
    1. El diagnóstico de enfermedad de Parkinson es dudoso o se sospecha que el paciente presenta un síndrome parkinsoniano, como parkinsonismo secundario (por ejemplo, por fármacos, toxinas, agentes infecciosos, enfermedad vascular, traumatismo, neoplasia cerebral), síndrome de Parkinson plus (por ejemplo, atrofia multisistémica, parálisis supranuclear progresiva, enfermedad difusa con cuerpos de Lewy) u otra enfermedad neurodegenerativa que pudiera imitar los síntomas de la enfermedad de Parkinson.
    2. El paciente se ha sometido a una intervención neuroquirúrgica para el tratamiento de la enfermedad de Parkinson.
    3. El paciente presenta algún déficit neurológico que pudiera interferir en las evaluaciones del estudio (por ejemplo, hemiparesia).
    4. Conocimiento de hipersensibilidad a levodopa, carbidopa, o material radiopaco.
    5. El paciente presenta alguna contraindicación al tratamiento con levodopa (por ejemplo, glaucoma de ángulo estrecho, melanoma maligno).
    6. El paciente ha presentado, en algún momento durante los tres meses precedentes a la selección, crisis de sueño o conductas impulsivas (por ejemplo, ludopatía, hipersexualidad) de importancia clínica, según criterio del investigador.
    7. El paciente ha recibido apomorfina en infusión continua para el tratamiento de la enfermedad de Parkinson.
