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   42330   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1.Participants legally competent to sign and give informed consent.
    2.Adult male and female patients aged 18 to 65 years with chronic plaque psoriasis:
    a.PASI score > 10 at screening and
    b.Disease duration of ≥ 6 months at the initiation of study medication.
    3.Body Mass Index (BMI) between 18.5 and 34.9 kg/m2.

Females on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and whose menopausal status is in doubt must discontinue HRT to allow confirmation of post-menopausal status prior to study enrollment. For most forms of HRT, at least 2 to 4 weeks will elapse between the cessation of therapy and the blood draw; this interval depends on the type and dosage of HRT. Following confirmation of their post-menopausal status, they can resume use of HRT during the study. Sterilized women may be included. (See Section 5.8 for more details on sterile definition).
    7.Patients must meet the following clinical laboratory criteria:
    a)White blood cell count ≥ 3.5 x 109/L
    b)Platelet count ≥ 100 x 109/L
    c)Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN); estimated glomerular filtration rate > 60 mL/min
    d)Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN
    e)Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 1.5 x ULN
    f) Hemoglobin ≥ lower limit of normal as per local laboratory reference ranges for women and men accordingly.

    8.Patients agree not to increase their normal sun exposure during the course of the study.
    9.Patients are able to swallow 2 small capsules during each administration.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1.Patients with non-plaque form of psoriasis (erythrodermic, guttate, pustular or palmo-plantar psoriasis; severe form of psoriasis arthritis, inverse form of psoriasis). Mild to moderate cases of psoriasis arthritis are allowed provided there is no impact on study objectives as determined by the Investigator.
    2.Patients with drug-induced psoriasis.
    3.Evidence of skin conditions at the time of screening visit other than psoriasis that would interfere with evaluations of the effect of study medication on psoriasis.
    4.Patients with any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent them from signing the informed consent form.
    5.Pregnant or lactating females or females planning to become pregnant during the study and/or within 28 days following the last dose of study medication.
    6.Male patients planning a partner pregnancy or sperm donation during the study or within 3 months following the last dose of study medication.

    14.Elective (planned) hospitalization or medical intervention preventing patient from following the protocol requirements.
    15.Prior treatments with Topical psoriasis medications, Topical immunosuppressive drugs , Systemic treatment (non-biologic), Phototherapy or photochemotherapy/photosensitizing drugs, Systemic retinoids, Any Anti TNFs, Other biologics and other systemic therapies, and Rituximab (see protocol)
    16.Drinking or ingesting grapefruit, pomegranate, grapefruit juice or grapefruit containing products within 14 days of study medication initiation.
