Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7258   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Safety:
    - To evaluate the ocular and systemic safety of a single dose of CPK850 in patients with RLBP1 retinitis pigmentosa.
    - Ophthalmic safety parameters: best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure (IOP), slit lamp examination (biomicroscopy), dilated fundus examination, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and color fundus photography (CFP) parameters.
    - Systemic safety parameters: adverse events (AEs), blood chemistry, hematology, urinalysis and vital signs.

    Efficacy:
    To evaluate the recovery of the rod system in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to pre-treatment assessments.
    - Recovery (pre-bleach minus post-bleach values in log10 units) of dark adaptation (DA) at 1 hour post-bleach.
    - Pre-bleach DA values (in log10 units).
    - Bleaching effect (bleaching minus pre-bleach thresholds in log10 units).
    - Dark adaptation kinetics from pre-bleach to 6 hours post-bleach (in log10 units).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To evaluate the recovery of the cone system in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to pre-treatment assessments.
    - To evaluate the recovery of the rod system in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to the untreated eye.
    - To evaluate changes from baseline in measures of visual function in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to pre-treatment assessments as well as to untreated eyes.
    - To evaluate the changes from baseline in the electrical rod and cone system function in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to pre-treatment assessments as well as to untreated eyes.
    - To evaluate the change from baseline in navigation skills in eyes treated with CPK850 as compared to pre-treatment assessments as well as to untreated eyes.
    - To assess the effects of CPK850 on activities of daily living as compared to pre-treatment assessments

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Written informed consent must be obtained before any
    assessment is performed.
    - Male and female patients aged 18 to 70 years. All female patients must have negative pregnancy test results at the screening visits and just prior to the treatment day.
    - The patients must have sufficiently clear ocular media and adequate pupil dilation to permit fundus photographs of adequate clarity and performance of vitrectomy and subretinal injection.
    - Patients must meet surgical requirements. In addition, patients must weigh at least 40 kg to participate in the study, and must have a body mass index (BMI) <40 kg/m2. BMI = Body weight (kg) / [Height (m)]2.
    - The visual acuity in the study eye at the screening 1 visit should be no better than 60 early treatment diabetic retinopathy study (ETDRS) letters. In Cohort 1, patients with visual acuity from 35 ETDRS letters to Hand Motion visual acuity will be included. For Cohorts 2 and beyond, patients with visual acuity of 60 ETDRS letters to Hand Motion visual acuity will be enrolled. Consideration for inclusion in Cohorts 1 and 2 only may be given to patients with visual acuity as low as Light Perception at the screening 1 visit, if they meet all other inclusion/exclusion criteria and at the agreement of the sponsor and principal investigators.
    - Clinical diagnosis of Bothnia dystrophy, Newfoundland rod-cone dystrophy or other progressive retinitis pigmentosa phenotype with biallelic mutations in the RLBP1 gene verified by Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) or equivalent molecular genetics testing.
    - Visible photoreceptor (outer nuclear) and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) layers on standard OCT scan in the study eye at the screening 1 visit as confirmed by the Central Reading Center.
    - Dark adaptation bleaching effect in the study eye at short wavelength stimulus of > 1.0 log unit at 2 of the 3 baseline measures obtained prior to treatment.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Unable or unwilling to meet requirements of the study
    - History of hypersensitivity to the study drug or to drugs of similar classes or to any of the medications required in the perioperative period.
    - Pre-existing eye conditions that would preclude the planned surgery or interfere with the interpretation of study endpoints; for example: glaucoma (IOP ≥25 mm Hg despite treatment with anti-glaucoma medication or low tension glaucoma), corneal or significant lenticular opacities, retinal vascular occlusion, retinal detachment, macular hole, or choroidal neovascularization of any cause.
    - Any active infection or ocular disease involving ocular adnexa including infectious conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, endophthalmitis, as well as idiopathic or autoimmune-associated uveitis in either eye.
    - Any contraindication to the planned surgery or anesthesia as determined by the treating physician (surgeon, anesthesiologist, primary care physician or designee). Use of systemic anticoagulant therapies during the study, such as warfarin, heparin or similar are to be evaluated by the treating physician as potential exclusions. The use of aspirin is not usually an exclusion criterion unless indicated by the treating physician. Abnormal vital signs and/or Electrocardiograms (ECGs) that suggest potential contraindications for planned study anesthesia are exclusions.
    - Known history of or current clinically significant arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, coronary bypass surgery, or any percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) within 6 months prior to screening or patients with heart failure New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II-IV at the discretion of the treating physician or cardiologist.
    - Cerebrovascular accident (stroke) within the 12 months prior to screening at the discretion of the treating physician.
    - Complicating systemic diseases or clinically significant abnormal laboratory values. Complicating systemic diseases would include those in which the disease itself, or the treatment for the disease, can alter ocular function. Examples are malignancies whose treatment could affect central nervous system function (for example radiation treatment of the orbit; leukemia with central nervous system (CNS)/optic nerve involvement). Also patients with immunocompromising diseases would be excluded since they would have susceptibility to opportunistic infections.
    - Women who are pregnant or nursing (lactating), as well as male and female patients of childbearing potential that are unwilling to use contraception as per study requirements.
