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   41229   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6756   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Subjects will provide assent in addition to the parent or legal guardian, as appropriate, as per local regulations.

    2. Male and female subjects aged 10 to 17 years old, inclusive, at the time of informed consent.

    3. Must have a body weight of ≥30 kg at Screening and Day 1.

    4. Must have a diagnosis of RRMS according to McDonald criteria for MS (2010) [Polman 2011] and International Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Study Group criteria for pediatric MS (2013) [Krupp 2013].

    5. Must be ambulatory, with a converted Kurtzke baseline EDSS score between 0 and 5.0, inclusive.

    6. Must have experienced ≥1 relapse in the 12 months prior to Screening or ≥2 relapses in the 24 months prior to Screening.

    6. History of drug or alcohol abuse (as defined by the Investigator) within the 2 years prior to Screening.

    7. Any of the following abnormal blood tests at Screening:
    - alanine transaminase (ALT)/serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT), AST/serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), or gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT) ≥2 times the upper limit of normal
    - leukocytes <3500/mm3
    - absolute lymphocyte count <LLN
    - eosinophils >0.7 × 103/μL or >0.7 GI/L

    8. Any of the following abnormal urine tests at Screening confirmed by a second urinalysis 2 weeks later:
    - proteinuria (1+ or greater) and/or spot protein/creatinine ratio (with AM void) >0.2 mg. Note: Documented benign proteinuria is not exclusionary.
    - hematuria, without known etiology (e.g., urinary tract infection or menses)
    - glycosuria, without known etiology (e.g., recent steroid use or elevated serum glucose)

    9. History of or positive test result at Screening for human immunodeficiency virus.

    10. History or positive test result at Screening for hepatitis C virus antibody or current hepatitis B infection (defined as positive for hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg] and/or hepatitis B core antibody [HBcAb]). Subjects with immunity to hepatitis B from previous natural infection (defined as negative HBsAg, positive hepatitis B surface antibody immunoglobulin G, and positive HBcAb) are eligible to participate in the study (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s interpretation of the hepatitis B serology panel) [CDC 2007].
