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   41449   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6808   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The main objectives are to understand how clinical markers and biomarkers previously identified in younger and older AD cohorts apply to the extreme elderly (90+ years old) and to identify novel biomarkers linked with resilience to developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in extreme elderly subjects. In addition we will generate normative data for the oldest and measure the concordance between amyloid pathology as assessed in CSF and by PET in the oldest old.
    Het voornaamste doel van ons onderzoek is het achterhalen van de factoren die ervoor zorgen dat sommige ouderen op hoge leeftijd (≥90 jaar) goede cognitieve functies behouden en geen dementie ontwikkelen. We zullen ons hierbij gaan richten op factoren waarvan de associatie met dementie op jongere leeftijd al is vastgesteld en op niet eerder vastgestelde factoren die wellicht beschermend kunnen zijn tegen het krijgen van dementie. Daarnaast zullen we op basis van de gegevens uit de cognitief gezonde groep deelnemers, normaalwaarden vaststellen voor zowel klinische markers (bv neuropsychologische testen) als biomarkers (bv amyloid waarden in het hersenvocht).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secundary study parameters are: 1. Generate normative data for the oldest old. 2. To measure the concordance between amyloid pathology as assessed in CSF and by PET in the oldest old.
    De secundaire onderzoeksvariabelen zijn: 1. De gegevens van de cognitief gezonde groep zal gebruikt worden voor het vaststellen van normaalwaarden van verschillende markers bij mensen van 90 jaar en ouder. 2. Tevens zal gekeken worden naar de concordantie tussen amyloid pathologie gemeten met behulp van een PET-MRI scan en gemeten in het hersenvocht bij mensen ouder dan 90 jaar.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Age ≥ 90 years Candidate is able to walk 400 meter independently (with or without walking aid) No significant visual or hearing impairment (as judged by clinician) Cognitively intact group: - MMSE ≥ 27 points - Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) = 0.0 points Cognitive impaired group: - MMSE: 20-28 points inclusively - CDR ≥ 1 point(s) - Determination that this dysfunction is due to cognitive functional loss and not physical impairment, as judged by a neurologist or internist-geriatrician. There is an overlap in MMSE score but this has no effect on the contrast between the two groups. The two groups are based on dementia diagnosis and the MMSE score has no influence on this diagnosis. Someone with a MMSE of 27 can be both dement or cognitively healthy.
    Leeftijd ≥ 90 jaar Kandidaat is in staat 400 meter zelfstandig te lopen (met of zonder hulpmiddel) Geen significante visus of gehoor beperking (beoordeeld door clinicus) Cognitief gezonde groep: - MMSE ≥ 27 punten - Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) = 0.0 punten
    Cognitieve stoornissen groep: - MMSE: 20 t/m 28 punten - CDR: ≥ 1 punt(en) - Door neuroloog of internist-geriater vastgesteld dat de dysfunctie het gevolg is van het cognitieve functieverlies en niet door fysieke beperkingen. Er bestaat een overlap in MMSE maar dit heeft geen gevolg voor het contrast tussen de 2 groepen. De diagnose dementie wordt namelijk niet gesteld op basis van de MMSE. Iemand met een MMSE van 27 kan zowel dement zijn als cognitief gezond.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary study parameters are: 1. To understand how clinical markers and biomarkers previously identified (and published) in younger and older dementia cohorts apply to the extreme elderly. 2. To identify novel biomarkers linked with resilience to developing AD in extreme elderly subjects. The clinical markers and biomarkers we will test, can be divided into the following 6 domains: - brain reserve capacity - comorbidity - genetics - physical performance - senescence state - biomarkers for AD For each domain we will test one or more parameters. For each parameter we will study whether this parameter is associated with resilience for dementia in the oldest old.
    De primaire onderzoeksvariabelen zijn: 1. onderzoeken of klinische markers en biomarkers die eerder in een jonger AD cohort zijn vastgesteld, ook gelden voor een populatie van 90 jaar en ouder 2. het identificeren van nieuwe biomarkers die wellicht gelinkd zijn aan bescherming tegen het krijgen van AD op zeer hoge leeftijd. De verschillende klinische markers en biomarkers die worden onderzocht, kunnen worden onderverdeeld in 6 domeinen: - hersen reserve capaciteit - comorbiditeit - genetica - fysieke activiteit - senescence status - biomarkers voor AD Binnen elk domein worden één of meer parameters gemeten. Voor alle parameters zal onderzocht worden of of deze geassocieerd is met bescherming tegen dementie op hoge leeftijd.
