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   36091   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5934   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).

    Clinical Trial Results:
    A 4-week, randomised, double-blind, parallel group study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Tiotropium+Olodaterol fixeddose combination [5/5 μg] delivered by the RESPIMAT® inhaler versus the free combination of tiotropium 5 μg and olodaterol 5 μg delivered by separate RESPIMAT® inhalers in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease [COPD]

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The objective of this study was to show that the fixed-dose combination of Tiotropium+Olodaterol [5/5 μg] [Tio+Olo Fixed Dose Combination (FDC)] is non-inferior to the free combination of its individual components Tiotropium 5μg and Olodaterol 5 μg [Tio/Olo free combination], all delivered by the RESPIMAT® inhaler, in patients with moderate to severe COPD.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Only subjects that met all the study inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria were to be entered in the study. All subjects were free to withdraw from the clinical trial at any time for any reason given. Close monitoring of all subjects was adhered to throughout the trial conduct. Rescue medication was allowed for all patients as required.

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    Definition: Open-Label Treated Set [OLTS]: This patient set includes all patients who signed the informed consent and were dispensed open-label study medication during the run-in period prior to randomisation and were documented to have taken any dose of this medication.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    All subjects were screened for eligibility to participate in the trial. Subjects attended specialist sites which would then ensure that they [the subjects] met all strictly implemented inclusion/exclusion criteria. Subjects were not to be randomised to trial treatment if any one of the specific entry criteria was violated.

    This outcome measure presents FEV1 after 28 days of treatment [measurement on Day 29]. Trough FEV1 was defined as the FEV1 value at the end of the dosing interval [24 hours], and was measured at 24 hours [+/- 10 minutes] after trial medication administration at Visit 5. Full Analysis Set [FAS]: This patient set is nested within the TS and includes patients who had a baseline measurement and at least one post-baseline measurement for the primary endpoint. The FEV1 measurement at Visit 4, which was 24 hours after the last open-label run-in treatment intake and 15 minutes before the first double-blind study drug intake was the baseline measurement.

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    02 May 2016
    The amendment changed the exclusion criterion 5 to exclude patients with a current diagnosis of asthma, not with a history of asthma, as the original Clinical Trial Protocol [CTP] stated. Clarifications concerning the Interactive Response Technology [IRT] call, dispensation of study medications, and collection of vital signs, COPD Assessment TestTM [CAT], and compliance data were added.

    Interruptions (globally)

    Were there any global interruptions to the trial? No

    Limitations and caveats
