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   41039   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6717   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate whether serum rituximab levels at M+1 are predictive of clinical outcome at M+6

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    -To evaluate whether serum rituximab levels at M+3 are predictive of clinical outcome at M+6

    -To evaluate whether the presence of anti-rituximab antibodies in patients is correlated with clinical outcome at M+6
    -To evaluate whether ANCA and/or B lymphocytes count (CD19+ cells) increase is correlated with clinical outcome at M+6
    -To describe the frequency and nature of rituximab-attributed adverse events in those patients, taking into account their anti-rituximab antibodies status
    -Déterminer si la rituximabémie à M+3 (3 mois après l’arrêt du traitement d’induction) est corrélée au risque de non réponse à M+6, chez les patients traités par RTX dans le cadre des VAA
    -Déterminer un seuil de rituximabémie prédictif de non-réponse
    -Déterminer si la présence d’AAR à un taux significatif est corrélée à la non-réponse à M+6
    -Déterminer la valeur prédictive de la réapparition des ANCA et/ou de la réaugmentation du taux de lymphocytes B CD19+ circulants, pour la non-réponse à M+6
    -Décrire la fréquence et la gravité des effets indésirables liés au RTX, notamment en fonction de la présence ou non d’AAR
