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   43609   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7207   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 ability of reslizumab (110 mg) administered subcutaneously (sc) once every 4 weeks to produce a corticosteroid-sparing effect (as demonstrated by percent reduction in daily OCS use) in patients with OCS-dependent asthma and elevated blood eosinophils, without loss of asthma control.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical benefits of reslizumab in the context of OCS reduction.
    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. The patient is male or female, 12 years of age and older, with a previous diagnosis of asthma. Patients 12 to <18 years of age are excluded from participating in South Korea, The Netherlands, and Argentina, and patients 66 years of age and older are excluded from participating in South Korea.
    b. Written informed consent is obtained. A patient 12 through <18 years of age must provide assent and his/her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must provide consent.
    c. The patient continues to require an average daily maintenance dose of OCS for asthma of between 5 and 40 mg during of Prednisone or equivalent the 3 months before screening. Patients on an OCS dose of >40 mg at screening who the investigator believes may be able to decrease OCS dose to ≤40 mg during the optimization period may also be enrolled. Note: every-other-day dosing that is within this daily average (ie, 10 to 80 mg) is allowed.
    d. The patient has a documented blood eosinophil level of at least 300/µL during the previous 12 months while on at least medium total daily dose of ICS based on Global Initiative for Asthma 2016 clinical comparability table (Appendix A), or ≥300/µL at screening while on chronic OCS or that becomes manifest during the OCS optimization period or at the week -2 visit (end of optimization period/beginning of run-in period).
    e. The patient has required at least 880 μg of inhaled fluticasone propionate or equivalent daily PLUS another controller(s) (eg, long-acting beta-adrenergic agonist [LABA], long-acting anti-muscarinic antagonist [LAMA], leukotriene inhibitor, or theophylline), or documented intolerance to another controller, for at least 6 months before the screening visit. For a fixed-dose ICS/LABA preparation, the highest labeled dose in that region will satisfy this criterion. For patients 12 through <18years of age, the ICS dose must correspond to at least a medium total daily ICS dose. Note: the dose and regimen of asthma controllers and any allergen immunotherapy should have been stable during the 30 days before signing the Informed Assent Form/Informed Consent Form (ICF).
    f. The patient has FEV1 reversibility of at least 12% after administration of inhaled reliever medication according to the standard American Thoracic Society (ATS) or European Respiratory Society (ERS) protocol. Given the refractory nature of the disease in this population and the influence of high background controller medications on reversibility testing, documented FEV1 reversibility of 12% or a provocation concentration producing a 20% fall in FEV1 for methacholine of ≤8 mg/mL within 24 months of the screening visit, and performed according to the standard ATS/ERS procedures, would fulfill this criterion. Patients may be screened again if they did not meet spirometry/reversibility criteria initially. The duration between the date of Screen Failure and the re-screening must be >30 days.
    g. 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.
    h. The patient must be willing and able to comply with study restrictions, willing and able to perform requisite procedures and to remain at the clinic for the required duration during the study period, and willing to return to the clinic for the follow up evaluation as specified in this protocol.
    i. Except for the OCS, which will be adjusted per protocol, the patient must maintain his/her usual asthma controller regimen without change throughout the screening, optimization, run-in, and treatment periods.
    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 and interpretation of efficacy results or would 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 [also known as Churg-Strauss syndrome], or allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis).
    c. The patient has a known hypereosinophilic syndrome.
    d. The patient has a history of any malignancy within 5 years of the screening visit, except for treated and cured non-melanoma skin cancers.
    e. The patient is pregnant or intends to become pregnant during the study or within 5 months from last dose of study drug or is a lactating woman. Any woman becoming pregnant will be withdrawn from the study.
    f. The patient required treatment for an asthma exacerbation within 4 weeks of screening.
    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 [mAb] or other mAb [eg, mepolizumab] or soluble receptor) or non-biologic (eg, methotrexate, cyclosporine), except maintenance OCS for the treatment of asthma. Previous use of such agents that occurred >5 half-lives from the screening visit may be allowed, if approved by the medical monitor.
    i. The patient participated in a clinical study 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 immunodeficiency disorder including human immunodeficiency virus.
    m. The patient has current suspected drug and/or alcohol abuse.
    n. The patient has had an active helminthic parasitic infection or was treated for one within 6 months of screening.
    o. The patient has a history of allergic reactions 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 variable and endpoint for this study is the categorized percent reduction in the daily OCS dose during weeks 20 to 24 as compared with the dose at the end of the optimization phase. Percent reduction will be categorized as follows:
    • 90% to 100%
    • 75% to <90%
    • 50% to <75%
    • >0% to <50%
    • No decrease in OCS, or loss of baseline asthma control during weeks 20 through 24, or discontinuation from study drug
    Loss of baseline asthma control will be defined as FEV1 value of less than 80% of baseline at the week 24 visit, or clinically significant worsening in ACQ-6 score (change in score of 0.5) at the week 24 visit compared with baseline, and/or clinical asthma exacerbation (CAE) during weeks 20 through 24.

    during the 20-24-week treatment period
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary efficacy endpoints are as follows:
    • Proportion of patients achieving ≥50% reduction in OCS dose at weeks 20 to 24 relative to the OCS dose at DoR/baseline, while maintaining asthma control
    • Proportion of patients achieving dose reduction to ≤5 mg daily dose at weeks 20 to 24, while maintaining asthma control
    • Percent change from DoR/baseline in OCS dose at weeks 20 to 24
    • Proportion of patients achieving less than 5 mg decrement in OCS dose (ie, the minimal and non-responders) at weeks 20 to 24 compared with the OCS dose at DoR/baseline, while maintaining asthma control
    • Clinical asthma exacerbation related:
    - Annualized rate of CAEs requiring a burst of systemic corticosteroid (injection, or if oral, at least a doubling from the current OCS dose for at least 3 days); an asthma-specific hospital admission; or an asthma-specific emergency department visit during the treatment period (weeks 0 to 24)
