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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    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 compare patient medication satisfaction as measured by the Medication Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) scores between the Copaxone 40 mg/mL three times a week (TIW) group and the Copaxone 20 mg/mL once daily (QD) group over 6 months of treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of the study are as follows:
    - To compare the convenience perception as measured by the convenience scale within the Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medication (TSQM-9) in patients treated with subcutaneous (SC) injection of Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW vs. Copaxone 20 mg/mL QD over 6 months of treatment
    - To compare symptomatic changes as determined by the Multiple Sclerosis Quality of Life Inventory (MSQLI) subscales Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS) and Mental Health Inventory (MHI) in patients treated with SC injection of Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW vs. Copaxone 20 mg/mL QD over 6 months of treatment
    - To compare patient’s depressive symptoms as measured by Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI-II) scale in patients treated with SC injection of Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW vs. Copaxone 20 mg/mL QD over 6 months of treatment

    The exploratory and other objectives of the study are detailed in the study protocol.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes

    Neuroimmunological Ancillary Study: The neuroimmunological ancillary study has the following objectives:
    - To compare throughout the study, the cytokine profile induced in the Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW group as compared to baseline.
    - To compare throughout the study, the distribution of T and B cells subpopulations as measured by flow cytometry in the Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW group as compared to baseline.
    - To compare throughout the study, the levels of neurotrophic and gliotrophic factors (platelet-derived growth factor [PDGF], nerve growth factor [NGF], brain-derived neurotrophic factor [BDNF], and epidermal growth factor core domain peptide of neuregulin-1 [eNRG1]) in the Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW group as compared to baseline.

    Pharmacogenomic Ancillary Study: Where local regulations permit, patients will participate in a PGx, gene expression, and response profile study. The Pharmacogenomic sub-study has the following objectives:
    - Explore the association between gene expression, genetic polymorphism, and response to Copaxone in terms of clinical and safety parameters.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patients may be included in the study only if they meet all of the following criteria:
    a. Men or women at least 18 years of age or older
    b. Patients must have a confirmed and documented RRMS diagnosis, as defined by the Revised
    McDonald criteria (Polman et al 2011).
    c. Patients must be ambulatory with a Kurtzke Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) score of 0 to 5.5 at Screening visit.
    d. Patients must be in a stable neurological condition, relapse-free and free of any corticosteroid treatment (intravenous [IV], intramuscular [IM] and/or per os [PO]) or adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), 30 days prior to randomization.
    e. Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening visit and must practice a highly effective method of birth control. Highly effective methods of birth control are defined as those, alone or in combination, that result in a low failure rate (ie, less than 1% per year) when used consistently and correctly. Highly effective methods of birth control in this study include: combined (estrogen and progestogen containing) or progestogen‑only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation, intrauterine device, intrauterine hormone‑releasing system, bilateral tubal occlusion, vasectomized partner, and sexual abstinence.
    f. Patients must be able to sign and date a written informed consent prior to entering the study.
    g. Patients must be willing and able to comply with the protocol requirements for the duration of the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients will be excluded from participating in this study if they meet any of the following
    criteria:
    a. Patient had any contraindication to Copaxone therapy.
    b. Previous use of Copaxone 40 mg/mL TIW.
    c. Patients with progressive forms of MS.
    d. Patients with neuromyelitis optica.
    e. Use of experimental or investigational drugs, and/or participation in drug clinical studies within the 6 months prior to screening.
    f. Patients who have been treated with:
    - immunosuppressive medications such as azathioprine or methotrexate within 6 months prior
    to the first visit
    - immunoglobulins and/or monoclonal antibodies (including natalizumab) within at least
    3 months prior to inclusion
    - alemtuzumab, cladribine, cyclophosphamide or mitoxantrone at any time
    g. Chronic (more than 30 consecutive days) systemic (IV, PO or IM) corticosteroid treatment within 6 months prior to screening visit.
    h. Pregnancy or breastfeeding.
    i. Clinically significant or unstable medical or surgical condition that would preclude safe and complete study participation
    j. Employees of the clinical study site or any other individuals involved with the conduct of the study, or immediate family members of such individuals
