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   37527   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6154   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Part A :
    - To evaluate the safety of ivacaftor treatment in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are <24 months of age at treatment initiation and have a CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene gating mutation
    - To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of ivacaftor and metabolites hydroxymethyl-ivacaftor (M1) and ivacaftor carboxylate (M6) in subjects with CF who are <24 months of age at treatment initiation and have a CFTR gating mutation
    Part B :
    - To evaluate the safety of ivacaftor treatment in subjects with CF who are <24 months of age at treatment initiation and have a CFTR gating mutation
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Part A: Not applicable
    Part B :
    - To evaluate the PK of ivacaftor and metabolites M1 and M6 in subjects with CF who are <24 months of age at treatment initiation and have a CFTR gating mutation
    - To evaluate the pharmacodynamics (PD) of ivacaftor treatment in subjects with CF who are <24 months of age at treatment initiation and have a CFTR gating mutation
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female with confirmed diagnosis of CF, defined as a sweat chloride value ≥60 mmol/L by quantitative pilocarpine iontophoresis OR 2 CF-causing mutations.
    A sweat chloride test must be performed if the sweat chloride value is not available in the subject’s medical records and the value is needed to establish eligibility. For subjects with sweat chloride values documented in their medical records and for whom it is not needed to establish eligibility, the sweat chloride test at screening is optional.
    2. Must have 1 of the following 9 CFTR mutations on at least 1 allele: G551D, G178R, S549N, S549R, G551S, G1244E, S1251N, S1255P, or G1349D. Subjects who have an R117H-CFTR mutation will be eligible in regions where ivacaftor is approved for use in subjects 2 through 5 years of age with an R117H-CFTR mutation.
    If a genotype test has been performed previously and is documented in the subject’s medical record, the subject's eligibility must be approved by the Vertex medical monitor. If a historic genotype result is not available at screening or if the historic genotype result is not approved by the Vertex medical monitor, the subject will be tested for CFTR genotype at screening and the results must be reviewed before the first dose of ivacaftor. Subjects who have been enrolled and whose screening genotype does not confirm study eligibility will not receive study drug.
    3. Aged 0 to <24 months at Day 1; subjects who completed Part A who are ≥24 months of age on Day 1 in Part B are not eligible to enroll in Part B.
    4. For Cohorts 4 and 7 only, gestational age ≥38 weeks.
    5. Hematology, serum chemistry, and vital signs results at screening with no clinically significant abnormalities that would interfere with the study assessments, as judged by the investigator.
    6. Weight at screening must be within the weight limits as defined for the study drug dose levels
    7. As judged by the investigator, the individual (i.e., parent or legal guardian) signing the informed consent on behalf of the subject must be able to understand the protocol requirements, restrictions, and instructions and should be able to ensure the subject’s compliance study requirements and the subject’s likelihood for completing the study as planned.
    8. Parent or legal guardian must sign the informed consent form.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. History of any illness or condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, might confound the results of the study or pose an additional risk in administering study drug to the subject
    2. An acute upper or lower respiratory infection, or pulmonary exacerbation, or changes in therapy (including antibiotics) for pulmonary disease within 4 weeks before Day 1
    3. Colonization with organisms associated with a more rapid decline in pulmonary status (e.g., Burkholderia cenocepacia, Burkholderia dolosa, and Mycobacterium abscessus) at screening. The investigator could be guided by the following suggested criteria for a subject to be considered free of colonization:
    • The subject should have had 2 respiratory tract cultures negative for these organisms within the past 12 months, with no subsequent positive cultures.
    • These 2 respiratory tract cultures should have been separated by at least 3 months.
    • One of these 2 respiratory tract cultures should have been obtained within the past 6 months.
    4. Abnormal liver function at screening or any prior history of clinically relevant elevated (>2 × upper limit of normal [ULN]) serum aspartate transaminase (AST), serum alanine transaminase (ALT), or bilirubin (excluding newborn hyperbilirubinemia)
    5. History of solid organ or hematological transplantation
    6. Any clinically significant "non-CF-related" illness within 2 weeks before Day 1. "Illness" is defined as an acute (serious or nonserious) condition (e.g., gastroenteritis)
    7. Use of any moderate or strong inducers or inhibitors of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A within 2 weeks before Day 1
    8. Participation in a clinical study involving administration of either an investigational or a marketed drug within 30 days or 5 terminal half-lives (whichever is longer or as determined by the local requirements) before screening
    9. Hemoglobin <9.5 g/dL at screening
    10. Chronic kidney disease of Stage 3 or above
    11. An adequate slit-lamp examination could not be conducted at the screening ophthalmologic examination (OE)
    11. Presence of a lens opacity or cataract identified at the screening OE(excluding those considered congenital and nonprogressive, such as a suture cataract)
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Part A:
    - Safety, as determined by adverse events, clinical laboratory values (serum chemistry and hematology), standard 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital signs, and ophthalmologic examinations (OEs)
    - PK parameter estimates of ivacaftor and metabolites M1 and M6 after 4 days of ivacaftor treatment
