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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the effect of 2 weeks of Lesogaberan treatment compared with 2 weeks of placebo treatment on 24 hour cough frequency.

    Lay description:

    To test what effect a drug called Lesogaberan has on how much a person coughs in a 24 hour period compared to if that person was taking a dummy drug with no active ingredients (called placebo).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    There are 6 secondary objectives that need to be addressed:

    1) The effect of 2 weeks treatment with Lesogaberan on the cough response to capsaicin (chilli pepper). Do patients cough less times and are they less sensitive to the capsaicin?

    2) What is the effect of first dose of Lesogaberan on the cough response to capsaicin?

    3) The effect of Lesogaberan on the severity of cough and quality of life

    4) The effect of Leosgaberan on gastroesophageal reflux disease symptoms?

    5) The safety and tolerability of Lesogaberan in patients with chronic cough

    6) 24hr cough frequency for SAP positive vs. SAP negative patients after 2 weeks treatment
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    2. Aged above 18 years old.
    3. Agreement to comply with contraception restrictions as outlined in section 8.3.4
    4. BMI of 19-35 kg/m2 (inclusive)
    5. Normal spirometry.
    6. Chronic dry cough of at least 8 weeks duration.
    7. Normal chest X-ray.
    8. Patients with cough related to nasal disease, reflux and asthma will be included. These conditions will be investigated but they will still be included.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. History of cardiac disease, clinically significant orthostatic reactions or syncope, renal disease and hepatic disease .
    2. Prolonged QTcF >450ms or family history of long QT syndrome at baseline (any prolongation of QTcF during the study will be classed as an AE unless >500 or deemed clinically significant by the research physician)
    3. Any clinically important abnormalities in rhythm, conduction or morphology of resting ECG at enrolment that may interfere with the interpretation of the QTc interval changes. This includes subjects with any of the following:
    • Clinically significant PR interval prolongation
    • Intermittent second or third degree AV block
    • Incomplete, full or intermittent bundle branch block (QRS<11ms with normal QRS and T wave morphology is acceptable if there is no evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy)
    4. Abnormal T wave morphology, particularly in the protocol define primary lead
    5. Any clinically significant illness, medical or surgical procedure or trauma within the 4 weeks preceding the first administration of study medication including upper respiratory tract infections.
    6. Any clinically significant abnormalities in clinical chemistry, haematology results as judged by the investigator.
    7. Abnormal screening clinical pathology values or other clinically significant, unexplained biochemical abnormality according to the investigator; in particular, liver function tests (LFTs) should be within normal limits at screening.
    8. Systolic blood pressure below 110 mm Hg at screening.
    9. Current smoker or ex-smoker with >20 pack year history, and <6 months abstinence.
    10. History of severe allergy/hypersensitivity or on-going allergy/hypersensitivity, as judged by the investigator or history of hypersensitivity to drugs with a similar chemical structure or class as Lesogaberan.
    11. History of drug addiction and/or alcohol abuse or other circumstances which in the investigators judgement may compromise the subject’s ability to comply with the study requirements.
    12. Pregnancy or breastfeeding.
    13. Treatment with ACE inhibitors will be excluded. Patients taking centrally acting medications e.g. opiates, amitriptyline, gabapentin, pregabalin for the treatment of cough, will be excluded unless they are willing to stop these treatments. Patients can be included if they are willing to stop opiates for 1 week prior to baseline visit through to follow-up visit. Pregabalin, gabapentin, amitriptyline and ACEi will need to be stopped for 4 weeks prior to baseline visit and through to follow-up visit.
    14. Has received another new chemical entity (defined as a compound which has not been approved for marketing) or has participated in any other clinical study that included drug treatment within 3 months of anticipated first administration of therapy in this study.
