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   37212   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6120   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.

    D.8.1Is a Placebo used in this Trial?Yes
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    RECURRENT PTERYGIUM
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Regrowth of conjunctival tissue(white fleshy tissue) after being removed
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Eye Diseases [C11]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess the efficacy of combined 5FU and Avastin injections in the treatment of recurrent pterygium.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary outcome will be disappearance of redness, return to normal thickness after the injections are stopped.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Patients over the age of 18
    -Able to give informed consent
    -Patients with early recurrent pterygium within 6 months of original excision (conjunctival recurrence or recurrence extending just across the limbus). Recurrence will be defined as follows:
    1. Increased vascularity of the conjunctiva at the site of original excision and autologous conjunctival grafting, showing tortuous and dilated vessels associated with thickening/oedema of the conjunctiva appearing after the initial redness and swelling related to surgery had settled.
    2. Clinically documented progression of fibrovascular tissue over two or more follow-up visits with or without frank encroachment on to the cornea, which did not settle with increased doses of topical steroids

    -Use of effective contraception in females of childbearing age

    There is no evidence in the literature that it affects spermatogenesis in men who are aiming to father a child therefore should not need to be excluded from the study. Therefore we will not exclude them from the study but we will inform them clearly that there is no evidence in literature regarding whether Avastin® can affect sperm.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Patients under 18 years of age
    - Patients unable or refusing to provide informed consent
    - Patients who are needle phobic
    - Pregnant women, women aiming for conception and breastfeeding women
    - Patients with hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients
    - Patients with active or suspected ocular or periocular infections.
    - Patients with active severe intraocular inflammation.
    - Patients with raised intraocular pressure or on glaucoma medication
    - Patients with advanced recurrent pterygium that extends between the pupil and limbus at the time of presentation
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Arrest of progression of the fibrovascular tissue
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At 3 month, which is 2 weeks after the last injection
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary outcome will be disappearance of redness, return to normal thickness after the injections are stopped.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At 3 month, which is 2 weeks after the last injection
