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   37564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6160   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)
    The primary efficacy variable is the number of SBIs. Also, the percentage of subjects with SBIs will be summarized.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Sampling will be taken throughout Previous Regimen Phase and Treatment Phases 1 and 2.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary endpoint of this study is trough concentrations of total IgG of previous regimen during the Screening/Previous Regimen Phase and the IGSC 20% Treatment Stages. It is measured to determine if IGSC 20% replacement therapy maintains mean trough IgG levels that are comparable to the mean trough blood levels with the previous IgG replacement regimen.

    Additional PK parameters include average trough concentration of IgG subclasses (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4), and concentration of antibody levels to S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, and C. tetani (tetanus). Trough measles antibody titers (functional assay) are an exploratory variable for informational purposes.
    For the adult (n~20) PK subset, serial samples will be collected immediately before and after SC#17 infusion at steady state. The PK profile will include total IgG concentrations at timepoints over a 7-day period. PK parameters including AUC0-7days, Cmax, and tmax will be determined by a noncompartmental model using WinNonlin.

    Other efficacy variables include rate of infection of any kind (serious and non-serious) including acute sinusitis, exacerbation of chronic sinusitis, acute otitis media, pneumonia, acute bronchitis, infectious diarrhea, etc., which will be recorded as an AE with the Investigator answering the following question affirmatively in the eCRF: “Is this an infection? (verbatim term delineating nature of infection). Validated infections documented by positive radiograph, fever (> 38°C oral or > 39°C rectal), culture, or diagnostic testing for microorganisms e.g., bacterial, viral, fungal, or protozoal pathogens (for instance, rapid streptococcal antigen test) will be analyzed separately.
    In addition, details regarding infections will include antibiotic treatment (oral, parenteral, oral plus parenteral, prophylactic, and therapeutic), and hospitalizations due to infection. Days lost from work/school/daily activities due to infections and related treatment comprise additional variables.
