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   38159   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6268   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.

    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: The primary objective of study A00426 was “to evaluate the safety of levocetirizine dihydrochloride in pediatric subjects aged from 1 to less than 6 years”. So the purpose of the study was the description of the safety profile of levocetirizine dihydrochloride across several safety variables. Therefore no statistical comparisons were applied in this safety study.

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    20 Feb 2008
    The protocol was amended to incorporate changes based on comments received by the Food and Drug Administration to the pre-IND file dated 14 November 2007. Efficacy assessments and serum drug concentration to assess compliance/ drug exposure were incorporated. Children aged 1 but less than 2 years were added to the inclusion criteria. The upper age for inclusion was clarified for children to less than 6 years of age. Information regarding pharmacokinetic modeling to predict dosing regimen in children less than 6 was added.
    28 Mar 2008
    The protocol was amended primarily to revise the exclusion criteria to require the specified washout period for subjects who are receiving exclusionary medications via breast milk during the course of the study. The laboratory texts exclusion criteria was amended to clarify that prior written approval from the UCB Clinical Research Physician for out of range laboratory tests in not required before enrolling a subject in the study. The decision to enroll such a subject was left up to the discretion of the Investigator. The prohibited concomitant medications exclusion criterion was amended to clarify that subjects taking single ingredient guaifenesin products at the time of study entry will not be required to perform the wash-out period, and that is the only cough or cold medication that subjects were allowed to take during the study period.
