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   41225   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6755   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    •To evaluate the safety of individualized dosing of Somavaratan for up to five months as assessed by review of the accumulated safety data in each treatment cohort
    •To evaluate the starting doses of Somavaratan for each cohort as measured by the proportion of subjects who achieve normalization of IGF-I SDS response (reference range of -2.00 to 2.00 SDS) during the first dosing interval (one month after the first dose)
    •To evaluate the dose titration plan of Somavaratan for each cohort as measured by the proportion of subjects who achieve a mean IGF-I SDS (based on pre-dose and 7 days after dosing values) within the defined target range of 0 to 1.50 after each dose titration
    •To determine whether IGF-I response over the 30 day dosing interval can be determined by using the SDS of the mean of IGF-I values from pre-dose and 7 days after dosing
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    •To evaluate the immunogenicity of Somavaratan by measurement of serum anti-drug antibody (ADA) titers and detection of neutralizing antibodies (NAb)
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Female or male subjects with age 23 to 70 years (inclusive).
    2. Female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to use appropriate contraceptive methods during the study and continue this method for at least one month after their study completion.
    3. Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at Screening.
    4. Subjects must have a documented medical history of GHD during adulthood, according to established guidelines (confirmatory testing
    should be done to document persistence of childhood onset GHD into adulthood if necessary). Acceptable diagnostic criteria include:
    - insulin tolerance test (ITT): peak hGH ≤ 5.0 ng/mL
    - arginine alone: peak hGH ≤ 1.4 ng/mL
    - arginine + growth-hormone-releasing hormone
    - glucagon stimulation test: peak hGH ≤ 3.0 ng/mL
    - at least 3 pituitary hormone deficiencies and a low IGF-I for age/gender

    For arginine + GHRH stimulation test, peak hGH limit is based upon body mass index as follows: ≤ 11.0 ng/mL for BMI < 25 kg/m2; ≤ 8.0 ng/mL for 25 ≤ BMI < 30 kg/m2; ≤ 4.0 ng/mL for BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2.
    Current height may be used to determine BMI if BMI is not available from the date of the stimulation test.
    If documented confirmation is not available, GH stimulation test may be performed at Screening (subjects receiving daily rhGH therapy must be withdrawn for at least 7 days prior to testing).
    5. Subjects taking other hormone replacement therapy for pituitary failure must have been on a stable course of treatment for at least 3 months prior to Screening.
    6. Subjects with underlying disorders responsible for the subject's GHD must have been clinically stable for at least 6 months prior to Screening.
    7. If a subject is currently receiving daily recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) injections for treatment of GHD, must agree to stop taking prescribed daily rhGH therapy for the washout period of 14 days minimum.
    8. Subjects must agree to inform the prescribing physician of study involvement, and the Investigator, prior to initiating a new medication (prescription or over-the-counter).
    9. Subjects must provide signed informed consent.
    10. Subjects must have a BMI (kg/m2) between 19.0 and 35.0 (inclusive).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Subjects with a documented history of diabetes mellitus or inadequate glucose control as defined by a historical or Screening value of:
    •FPG > 126 mg/dL (7 mM), or
    •HbA1c ≥ 6.5%
    2.Subjects with untreated adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency will be screened by morning serum cortisol followed by ACTH stimulation test for subjects without documented history of adrenal insufficiency.
    3.Subjects with free thyroxine outside the normal reference range.
    4.Subjects currently taking oral glucocorticoids, except for physiological maintenance doses of oral glucocorticoids in subjects with multiple pituitary hormone deficiencies.
    5.Subjects with current significant cardiovascular disease, heart insufficiency of NYHA class > 2.
    6.Subjects with current significant cerebrovascular, pulmonary, neurological (not considered related to GHD), renal, inflammatory, or hepatobiliary disease.
    7.Subjects with current papilledema.
    8.Subjects with a history of persistent (unresolved without medical intervention) or recurring migraines.
    9.Subjects with current edema (≥ CTCAE Grade 2).
    10.Subjects with current drug or alcohol abuse.
    11.Subjects with a documented history of HIV, current HBV or HCV infection (testing not required).
    12.Subjects with a prior history of malignancy or abnormal results of any routine cancer screening tests, excluding adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancers or adequately treated in situ carcinoma of the cervix.
    13.Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
    14.Subjects treated with an investigational drug within 30 days prior to Screening.
    15.Subjects with a significant abnormality in Screening laboratory results as interpreted by the Investigator and/or the Medical Monitor.
