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   43851   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7283   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the effect of reslizumab (110 mg) administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks on clinical asthma exacerbations (CAEs) in adults and adolescents with asthma and elevated blood eosinophils who are inadequately controlled on standard-of-care asthma therapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary efficacy objectives are to evaluate the effects of reslizumab compared with placebo on a range of clinical markers of asthma control including pulmonary function (forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV1]).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patients may be included in the study only if they meet all of the following criteria:
    a. Written informed consent is obtained. A patient 12 through <18 years of age must provide assent, and their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must provide consent.
    b. The patient is male or female, 12 years of age and older, with a diagnosis of asthma. (Patients 12 to <18 years of age are excluded from participating in South Korea and Argentina, and patients 66 years of age and older are excluded from participating in South Korea.)
    c. The patient has had at least 2 documented asthma exacerbations requiring the use of systemic (oral, intramuscular, or intravenous) corticosteroids within 12 months of signing the Informed Assent Form/Informed Consent Form.
    d. The patient has an ACQ-6 score of at least 1.5 at screening (visit 1).
    e. The patient has a blood eosinophil level of at least 300/µL during the screening period (ie, before visit 2).(A maximum of 30% of the patients with blood eosinophil levels of 300/μL to <400/μL will be enrolled. When this 30% threshold has been reached, only patients with blood eosinophil levels of ≥400/μL will then be enrolled).
    f. The patient has an FEV1 reversibility of at least 12%and an absolute change of at least 200 mL after administration of inhaled SABA according to standard American Thoracic Society (ATS) or European Respiratory Society (ERS) protocol. Documented historical reversibility within 12 months of signing the Informed Assent Form/Informed Consent Form is acceptable.
    g. The patient has required at least a medium total daily inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) dose based on Global Initiative for Asthma 2016 clinical comparability table (Appendix A) for at least 3 months. For ICS/LABA combination preparations, the mid-strength approved maintenance dose in the local country will meet this ICS criterion.
    h. The patient has required an additional asthma controller medication (eg, long-acting beta-2-agonist[LABA], long-acting muscarinic antagonist [LAMA], leukotriene receptor antagonist [LTRA], or theophylline preparations), besides inhaled corticosteroids, for at least 3 months or a documented failure in the past 12 months of an additional asthma controller medication for at least 3 successive months.
    i. Females of childbearing potential (not surgically sterile by hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or 2 years postmenopausal) must have exclusively same-sex partners or use medically acceptable methods of birth control and must agree to continue use of this method for the duration of the study and for 5 months after the last study drug dose. Acceptable methods of birth control include intrauterine device, systemic hormonal contraceptive (oral, implanted, transdermal, or injected), barrier method with spermicide, abstinence, bilateral fallopian tube occlusion, and partner vasectomy. Contraception is further clarified in an administrative letter in Section 1.1.1.
    j. The patient must be willing and able to comply with study restrictions, perform requisite procedures and remain at the clinic for the required duration during the study period, and be willing to return to the clinic for the follow-up evaluation as specified in this protocol.
    k. The patient must maintain their usual asthma controller regimen without change throughout the screening and run-in periods. A patient who experiences an asthma exacerbation during this time that requires additional medication, beyond increased SABA use, will be considered to have failed screening/run-in and cannot undergo randomization. A patient may be rescreened for this reason 1 time only. The duration between the date of Screen Failure and the re-screening must be >30 days. Patients may be screened again if they did not meet spirometry/reversibility criteria initially.
    I. In order to be randomized, a patient must demonstrate the following:
    -- inadequate asthma control at baseline/DoR as evidenced by:
    - daytime asthma symptom score >0 on >2 of the previous 7 days based on the asthma control diary received at run-in OR
    i) need for reliever SABA use on >2 of the previous 7 days OR
    ii) ≥1 nighttime awakening due to asthma over the previous 7 days OR
    - pre-bronchodilator FEV1 <80% predicted at baseline/DoR
    -- completion of at least 4 days of diary entries or equivalent during the last 7 days of run-in. A patient may be rescreened for this reason 1 time only.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients will be excluded from participating in this study if they meet any of the following criteria:
    a. The patient has any clinically significant, uncontrolled medical condition (treated or untreated) that would interfere with the study schedule or procedures, interpretation of efficacy results, or compromise the patient’s safety.
    b. The patient has another confounding underlying lung disorder (eg, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis [EGPA, also known as Churg-Strauss syndrome], or allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis [ABPA]).
    c. The patient has a known hypereosinophilic syndrome.
    d. The patient has a diagnosis of malignancy within 5 years of the screening visit, except for treated and cured non-melanoma skin cancers.
    e. The patient is a pregnant or lactating woman, or intends to become pregnant during the study or within 5 months after the last dose of study
    drug. Any woman becoming pregnant during the study will be withdrawn from the study.
    f. The patient required treatment for an asthma exacerbation within 4 weeks of screening or during the screening/run-in period.
    g. The patient is a current smoker (ie, has smoked within the last 6 months before screening) or has a smoking history ≥10 pack years.
    h. The patient is currently using any systemic immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory biologic (eg, anti-immunoglobulin E monoclonal antibody or other monoclonal antibody [eg, mepolizumab] or soluble receptors) or non-biologic (eg, methotrexate or cyclosporine), except maintenance oral corticosteroids for the treatment of asthma (up to and including 10 mg of prednisone daily or equivalent). Note: Previous use of such agents that occurred >5 half-lives from the initial screening visit may be allowed, if approved by the medical monitor.
    i. The patient participated in a clinical trial within 30 days or 5 half-lives of the investigational drug before screening, whichever is longer.
    j. The patient was previously exposed to benralizumab within 12 months of screening.
    k. The patient was previously exposed to reslizumab.
    l. The patient has a history of an immunodeficiency disorder including HIV.
    m. The patient has current or suspected drug and alcohol abuse.
    n. The patient has an active helminthic parasitic infection or was treated for one within 6 months of screening.
    o. The patient has a history of allergic reaction or hypersensitivity to any component of the study drug.
    p. The patient has a history of latex allergy. (The current prefilled syringe device has a natural rubber component to the needle shield.)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the frequency of CAEs per patient during the 52-week treatment period.
    For this study, a CAE is defined as a clinically judged deterioration in asthma control as determined by the
    investigator and as evidenced by new or worsening asthma signs or symptoms based on the patient history, asthma control diary, physical examination, and/or ambulatory or clinic visit assessment of lung function and that results in a medical intervention, including at least 1 of the following:
    -- use of systemic corticosteroids (oral or injection) or at least a doubling from a stable maintenance oral
    corticosteroid dose for at least 3 days
    -- asthma-specific hospital admission
    -- asthma-specific emergency department visit
    Additional medication and/or medical intervention that would satisfy the CAE definition occurring within 7 days of the last day of a prior CAE event will be considered as part of the same event for analysis purposes.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    during the 52-week treatment period
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary efficacy endpoints are as follows:
    -- change in pre-bronchodilator FEV1 from baseline/the day of randomization (DoR) at week 52
