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   41232   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6757   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.

    - And ≥6 swollen joints and ≥6 tender/painful joints (from the 66/68 joint count system)
    - And C-reactive protein (CRP) ≥1.0 mg/dL or an ESR ≥28 mm/hour at Screening
    - And positive RF (≥20 units/mL) or anti-CCP antibodies (≥10 units/mL) at Screening

    4. Current treatment for RA on an outpatient basis:
    - Receiving MTX 7.5 - 25mg/week (oral or parenteral) for at least 12 weeks, including the last 4 weeks prior to Day 1 at a stable dose, via the same route of administration, dose, and formulation. Patients receiving a lower dose of MTX (<10 mg/week), stable for 4 weeks prior to Day 1, should be doing so as a result of a documented evidence of intolerance to higher doses of MTX.
    - Leflunomide must be withdrawn at least 12 weeks prior to Day 1 or a minimum of 4 weeks prior to Day 1 if after 11 days of standard cholestyramine washout.
    - All DMARDs different from MTX and leflunomide must be withdrawn at least 4 ~ 8 weeks prior to Day 1.
    - If receiving current treatment with oral corticosteroids, the dose must not exceed 10 mg/day prednisone or equivalent. During the 4 weeks prior to Day 1 the dose must be stable.
    - The most recent IM/intra-articular steroid injection should be 6 weeks prior to Day 1.

    5. Men and women of childbearing potential must use 2 forms of accepted and highly effective methods of contraception during the course of the treatment period and for at least 12 months after the last infusion of study drug. A man or women is of childbearing potential if, in the opinion of the investigator, he or she is biologically capable of having children and is sexually active. Examples of highly effective contraception include:

    - E la proteina C-reattiva (CRP) ≥1.0 mg / dL o un ESR ≥28 mm / ora allo screening
    - E RF positivo (≥20 unità / mL) o anticorpi anti-CCP (≥10 unità / mL) allo screening
    3. Pazienti affetti da AR grave che hanno ottenuto una risposta inadeguata a un trattamento di durata pari almeno a 3 mesi (in base al trattamento e al dosaggio approvati) o abbiano manifestato intolleranza (definita a discrezione dello sperimentatore e/o come sviluppo di eventi avversi non tollerabili o di tossicità quali reazione correlata all’infusione, ipersensibilità, anafilassi o tossicità grave) alla terapia anti-TNF (sviluppo di evento avverso grave o tossicità).
    4. I pazienti devono essere in terapia con una dose settimanale stabile di
    MTX, 7,5-25 mg/settimana per almeno 12 settimane, comprese le
    ultime 4 settimane prima del Giorno 1 a una dose stabile (dosi inferiori
    di MTX, <10 mg/settimana, sono consentite solo se i soggetti hanno
    un’evidenza documentata di intolleranza a dosi più alte di MTX).
    - Leflunomide deve essere sospeso almeno 12 settimane prima del Giorno 1 o un minimo di 4 settimane prima del Giorno 1 se dopo 11 giorni dal wash-out di colestiramina standard.
    - Tutti i DMARDs diversi da MTX e leflunomide devono essere sospesi almeno 4 ~ 8 settimane prima della Giorno 1.
    - Se si ha un trattamento in corso con corticosteroidi per via orale, la dose non deve superare i 10 mg / die di prednisone o equivalente. Durante le 4 settimane precedenti il Giorno 1 la dose deve essere stabile.
    - L'iniezione di steroidi IM / intra-articolare più recente dovrebbe essere 6 settimane prima del giorno 1.
