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   35513   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5839   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.

    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Minimal change nephrotic syndrome
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Minimal change nephrotic syndrome
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Immune System Diseases [C20]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To compare the therapeutic effect of tacrolimus (Prograf®) in combination with low-dose corticosteroid with high-dose corticosteroid alone in patients with minimal change nephrotic syndrome after a 24-week study drug administration period.
    The primary purpose of this trial is to compare and analyze patients in the experimental group (new treatment arm) and the control group (standard treatment arm) in terms of the percentage of complete remission of urine protein creatinine ratio.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary purpose of this trial is to compare and analyze the period until the UPCR is decreased below 0.2 after the treatment with the study drug and the control drug, the percentage of subjects who show relapse up to 24 weeks, and the period until the relapse happens up to 24 weeks. For these purposes, UPCR, serum creatinine, and blood tacrolimus concentration are measured at each visit.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) Male or female patients aged 16 or over–under 80
    2) Patients who have been diagnosed with initial or relapsed primary minimal change nephrotic syndrome through a renal biopsy
    3) Patients whose urine protein creatinine ratio (UPCR) measured at the screening visit is 3.0 or above (spot urine)
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1) Patients whose MDRD eGFR < 30 ml/min/1.73m2
    2) Patients who were treated with immunosuppressants, such as tacrolimus, cyclosporine, cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), mizoribine (Bredinin), levamisole, azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetil or rituximab within two weeks before this clinical trial
    3) Patients to whom more than 10 mg prednisolone or an equivalent dose of steroid was administered daily within two weeks before this clinical trial
    4) Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to be pregnant or to breastfeed within six months after the study completion, or females of childbearing potential who do not agree to use effective contraceptive methods
    5) Patients who are hypersensitive to the investigational drug or to macrolides, such as azithromycin, clarithromycin, or roxithromycin
    6) Patients who are taking bosentan (Tracleer tablets)
    7) Patients who are taking potassium-sparing diuretics
    8) Patients who were treated with a live vaccine within four weeks before V1
    9) Patients whose liver function test result is three times the upper limit of normal or clinically significant acute hepatitis patients whose serum bilirubin has been higher than 3.6 mg/dL for more than 1 month
    10) Patients who have a significant general disease that makes it inappropriate for them to participate in this clinical trial as judged by the investigator (e.g., cardiovascular-acute myocardial infarction, heart failure classified as more than NYHA class III, hepatic/gastrointestinal/neurologic disease, blood disorder, cancer, infection, renal disorder other than minimal change nephrotic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis with pneumonia interstitials, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, chicken pox, etc.)
    11) Patients who have genetic problems, such as galactose intolerance, Lapp lactose deficiency, or glucose-galactose malabsorption
    12) Patients to whom another investigational drug was administered within the last 30 days
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The percentage of study subjects who show a decreased UPCR of less than 0.2 up to eight weeks of administration of the study drug or control drug.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    0 weeks and 8 weeks
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - The period until the UPCR is decreased below 0.2 after the administration of the study drug or control drug
    - The percentage of study subjects who show relapse after the complete remission up to 24 weeks of administration of the study drug or control drug.
    - The period until the relapse happens from the complete remission up to 24 weeks of administration of the study drug or control drug.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    UPCR: 0 weeks, 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, 20 weeks, 24 weeks
