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   43926   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The main objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of multiple-dose ledipasvir (LDV) 90 milligram (mg) once daily given in combination with sofosbuvir (SOF) 400 mg once daily on the steady-state pharmacokinetics (PK) of SMV 150 mg once daily in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 infected participants and to evaluate the effect of multiple-dose SMV 150 mg once daily on the steady-state PK of LDV 90 mg once daily given in combination with SOF 400 mg once daily in chronic HCV genotype 1 infected participants.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Safety evaluations for this study included the monitoring of adverse events (AEs) (including specific toxicities), clinical laboratory tests (hematology, serum chemistry, coagulation, and urinalysis), electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital sign measurements and physical examinations.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    A total of 41 participants were enrolled in the study. Among them 40 participants (20 per panel) were randomized and treated. One participant was early terminated from the study, due to withdrawal of consent before randomization to study drug. All randomized participants received study drug and were included in the intent to treat (ITT) population.
