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   40626   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6627   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of a SCIT (subcutaneous immunotherapy)-treatment with a mutant recombinant fish-parvalbumin (mCyp c1, carp parvalbumin) quantified in mass units and formulated in a solution with alum, in subjects with fish-allergy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the safety of SCIT treatment with mCyp c 1 and determine any possible changes in the severity of the reaction during the pre- and post-treatment DBPCFC (double blind placebo controled food challenge) with fish, in the SPT (skin prick test) reactivity to fish, in specific IgE, IgA, IgG, IgG4 antibodies against fish and rCyp c 1 (recombinant carp parvalbumin) and in the biological activity of IgE, between the active and placebo study groups.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    -the subject must receive/ use a medically effective contraceptive method during the study.
    Convincing case history of allergy (immediate allergic reaction ≤ 2 hours) to fish ingestion.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Placebo-reaction in DBPCFC.
    Reaction in the last (7th) dose of the DBPCFC.
    Food anaphylaxis: anaphylactic shock (a score of 2 or 3 on cardiovascular/ neurologic symptoms according to PRACTALL (1): score 2 = drop in blood pressure and/or >20% from baseline, or significant change in mental status- score 3 = cardiovascular collapse, signs of impaired circulation/ unconscious) due to fish intake, both during the past and at screening DBPCFC.
    Ongoing immunotherapy (IT) with any kind of allergen.
    Ongoing or previous treatment with omalizumab.
    Any clinical condition that contraindicates IT (EAACI guidelines) (8): serious immunological diseases, major cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic infections, lack of compliance and severe psychological disorders.
    Any significant clinical condition that the investigators judged might hamper the patient’s safety or the study outcomes. These diseases include, but are not limited to, cardiovascular disease, malignancy, hepatic disease, renal disease, haematological disease, neurological disease, mental disease, immunological and endocrine disease.
    Chronic urticaria.
    Severe atopic dermatitis or non-controlled atopic dermatitis.
    Ongoing treatment with betablockers, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor II antagonists (ARA II).
    Pregnancy or nursing.

    An FEV1<80% of predicted value during screening spirometry.
    Subject who has participated in a clinical trial within 3 months prior to this one.
    Subject with a history of drug or alcohol abuse.
    Investigators, co-investigators, as well as their children or spouses and all the study collaborators should not be enrolled in the study.
    Patients with concurrent allergy symptoms can be included if patients can manage without antihistamines and/or leukotriene receptor antagonists five days prior each screening and treatment visit.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of the study will be efficacy as determined by the change from baseline in the threshold of fish protein that induces an allergic reaction. This threshold will be assessed by means of a standardized DBPCFC (double blind placebo controlled food challenge) with cod-fish after completion of six months of immunotherapy (SCIT). Success is defined as a statistically significant change in the threshold dose of protein that provokes a reaction in DBPCFC.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The time point for each patient will be 2 weeks after the last maintenance dose of the SCIT. At that time point each patient will be subjected to a post-treatment DBPCFC.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The fundamental secondary endpoint will be safety as indicated by clinical safety and tolerability and by the careful recording of adverse events; other surrogates of safety will be: physical examination, vital signs, 12-Lead ECG and laboratory evaluations (complete blood count, biochemical tests, urine analysis and urine pregnancy test).
    Secondary outcomes of efficacy are the changes from baseline in the severity of the reaction in the post DBPCFC (as compared with pre-treatment), in SPT reactivity against fish and mCyp c 1 (titrated), in serum specific IgE, IgG, IgG4 and IgA antibodies against rCyp c 1 (CAP) and in the biological activity of IgE (stripped basophil histamine release test).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Safety will be monitored throughout the study.
    For efficacy, the time point for each patient will be 2 weeks after the last maintenance dose of the SCIT. At that time point each patient will be subjected to a DBPCFC. Before the food challenge patients will be subjected to blood withrawl, urine sample and skin prick tests to assess the secondary end points (both in terms of safety and efficacy).
