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   36088   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5931   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Reduction in the rate of moderate-to-severe asthma exacerbations. A severe asthma exacerbation is defined as treatment with ‘rescue’ systemic corticosteroids for greater than or equal to 3 days and hospitalization; or treatment with ‘rescue’ systemic corticosteroids for greater than or equal to 3 days and emergency department visit (greater than 24 hours); or death due to asthma. A moderate asthma exacerbation is defined as treatment with ‘rescue’ systemic corticosteroids for greater than or equal to 3 days either as an outpatient or in emergency department visits (Emergency department visit less than or equal to 24 hours).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    52 weeks
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - Change from baseline in AQLQ+12 score. AQLQ+12 consists of 32 questions each scaled from 1 to 7, where 1 indicates maximal impairment and 7 indicates no impairment.
    - Change from baseline in ACQ-5 score. The ACQ- 5 consists of 5 questions on a 7-point scale (0=no impairment, 6=maximum impairment).
    - Change from baseline in pre-dose FEV1 (liters).
    - Adverse event monitoring.

    Patients completing the treatment period will not be given further access to study drug because the risk/benefit ratio will not yet have been substantiated and there are already other marketed therapeutic alternatives available to treat these patients. At the time of study completion or early termination, all patients will be placed on the appropriate asthma treatment as prescribed by the investigator.
