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   43977   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the reduction of inflammatory characteristics in the skin in responders and non-responders of treatment with Xolair (omalizumab), thereby exploring the reduction in inflammatory parameters by analysis of complement deposition and infiltration of FcεRI-bearing leukocytes such as basophils.
    Changes in inflammatory parameters in the skin will also be related to changes in levels of circulating complement components and the reduction of the in vitro activation state and numbers of basophils.
    Het primaire eindpunt is de vermindering van inflammatoire karakteristieken in de huid in patiënten met en zonder respons op omalizumab. Daartoe wordt de vermindering in complement depositie en infiltratie van FcεRI-houdende leukocyten zoals basofielen geanalyseerd.
    Veranderingen in inflammatoire karakteristieken in de huid worden daarnaast gerelateerd aan veranderingen in het bloed, namelijk circulerende complement cascade componenten, en de activatiestaat en aantallen basofiele granulocyten.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Skin biopsies will be performed at baseline, after 24 hours and after 2 weeks.
    Venipunctures will be performed at baseline, 1,2, 6 and 24 hours after the first dose of omalizumab, 1 and 2 weeks after the first dose of omalizumab, before and 2 hours after the second dose of omalizumab and subsequently every 4 weeks, before the next dose of omalizumab. Three months after the last (6th) dose, a last venipuncture will be performed.
    Huidbiopten worden afgenomen voor aanvang van de behandeling en 24 uur en 2 weken na de eerste gift.
    Daarnaast zullen venapuncties plaatsvinden voor aanvang van de behandeling, 1,2, 6 en 24 uur en 1 en 2 weken na de eerste gift omalizumab, voor en 2 uur na de tweede gift omalizumab en voorafgaand aan iedere volgende gift omalizumab. Drie maanden na de laatste (6e) gift omalizumab wordt een laatste venapunctie verricht.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary endpoint is the clinical efficacy of omalizumab. Disease severity (UAS7, AAS), Quality of life (CU-QoL, AE-QoL, DLQI), and disease control (UCT) will be measured for this purpose.
    Het secundaire eindpunt is de effectiviteit van omalizumab, gemeten met ziekteactiviteit (UAS, AAS), ziekte controle (UCT) en kwaliteit van leven (CU-QoL, AE-QoL, DLQI).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    UAS7 and when applicable AAS will be used throughout the study. At baseline, after three months of treatment and at the last follow up visit, CU-QoL, DLQI and if applicable AE-QoL will be used. UCT will be used every visit where patients receive a dose of omalizumab, and at the last follow-up visit.
    UAS7 en, wanneer van toepassing AAS, zullen gedurende de hele studie worden gemeten. Vragenlijsten aangaande kwaliteit van leven (CU-QoL, DLQI en indien van toepassing AE-QoL) worden ingevuld bij baseline, na 3 maanden behandeling en bij het laatste follow-up bezoek. De UCT wordt ingevuld bij iedere gift omalizumab en bij het laatste follow-up bezoek.
