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   36784   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6075   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).
    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 efficacy of sirukumab as adjunctive treatment to antidepressant therapy (monoaminergic antidepressant) where sirukumab (administered as a 50mg subcutaneous (SC) injection at Day 1, Day 28 and Day 56 during the 12- week double-blind treatment period) is compared to adjunctive placebo based on the change from baseline to 12-week endpoint in depressive symptoms as measured by the total score on the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS17), in subjects diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have had a suboptimal response to the current standard oral antidepressant therapy and have a screening and baseline high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP) ≥0.300 mg/dL (International System of Units (SI)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To evaluate the overall safety and tolerability of adjunctive sirukumab compared to adjunctive placebo.
    - To evaluate the impact of adjunctive sirukumab compared to adjunctive placebo on anhedonia as measured by the change from study baseline to 12-week endpoint on the Snaith Hamilton Pleasure Scale (SHAPS) in subjects with MDD and screening hsCRP ≥ 0.300 mg/dL.
    - To evaluate the impact of treatment with adjunctive sirukumab compared to adjunctive placebo on global severity of symptoms of MDD, as measured by the change in the Clinical Global Impression - Severity (CGI-S) scale from study baseline to 12-week endpoint in subjects with MDD and screening hsCRP ≥0.300 mg/dL.

    For an overview of all objectives please refer to the protocol
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Participants must have a primary DSM5 diagnosis of MDD
    - Must have a HDRS total score greater than or equal to (>=) 18 at screening and predose at Day 1, as recorded by the remote independent rater and must not demonstrate an improvement of > 25 percent (%) on their HDRS total score from the screening to baseline visit
    - Must be medically stable on the basis of physical examination, medical history, vital signs, clinical laboratory tests and 12-lead ECG performed at screening. If there are abnormalities, the participant may be included only if the investigator judges the abnormalities or deviations from normal to be not clinically significant. This determination must be recorded in the subject's source documents and initialed by the
    - Participants with hypothyroidism who are on stable treatment for 3 months prior to screening are required to have thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and free thyroxine (FT4) obtained. If the TSH value is
    out of range, but FT4 is normal, such cases should be discussed directly with the medical monitor before the subject is enrolled. If the FT4 value is out of range, the participant is not eligible
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Any other current Axis one psychiatric condition, including, but not limited to, MDD with current psychotic features, bipolar disorder (including lifetime diagnosis), obsessivecompulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder, eating disorder (eg, bulimia, anorexia nervosa), or schizophrenia (lifetime). The MINI will be used to screen for comorbid psychiatric diagnoses. As noted above, subjects with a diagnosis of comorbid GAD, PostTraumatic Stress Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder, ADHD, Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder with or without agoraphobia or Nicotine/Caffeine Dependence may be included, if the investigator considers MDD to be the primary diagnosis
    - A history of alcohol or substance use disorder (abuse/dependence) within 6 months prior to screening (nicotine and caffeine dependence are not exclusionary)
    - A current or recent (within the past year) history of clinically significant suicidal ideation (corresponding to a score of >= 3 for ideation) or any suicidal behavior within the past year, as validated on the CSSRS at screening or baseline. Subjects with a prior suicide attempt of any sort, or history of prior serious suicidal ideation/plan should be carefully screened for current suicidal ideation and only included at the
    discretion of the investigator
    - More than 3 failed antidepressant treatments (of adequate dose and duration) in the current episode of depression (verified by the MGHATRQ)
    - Length of current major depressive episode > 60 months
