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   43234   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7153   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    - To evaluate the efficacy and dose response of M2951 compared to placebo in reducing disease activity in adult subjects with active, autoantibody-positive SLE who are receiving SoC therapy based on SRI-4 response at Week 52 in all subjects, or on SRI-6 response at Week 52 in the HDA subgroup, defined as SLEDAI-2K ≥ 10.
    - To evaluate the safety of M2951 in subjects with SLE on SoC therapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Key secondary objectives:
    •To evaluate the efficacy and dose response of M2951 compared to placebo in delaying time to first severe flare during the Treatment Period,in subjects with SLE on SoC therapy,where a severe flare is defined as at least one BILAG 2004 A in any organ system due to items that are new or worse,compared to the BILAG evaluation at the previous visit
    •To evaluate the efficacy and dose response of M2951 compared to placebo in reducing disease activity,based on the SRI-4 response at W52,in the serologically active subgroup,which is defined as subjects with positive anti-dsDNA and/or low complement levels
    Other secondary objectives:
    •To evaluate the efficacy of M2951 compared to placebo on changes in disease activity and in organ-specific disease activity over52W
    •To evaluate the effect of M2951 compared to placebo on the annualized flare rate and on CS usage over52W
    •To evaluate the impact of M2951 treatment compared to placebo on subject reported HRQoL over52W
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    After a subject has completed the study or has withdrawn early, the subject is free to access further treatment as deemed appropriate by the Treating Investigator. The Sponsor will not provide any additional care to subjects after they leave the study because such care should not differ from what is normally SoC for subjects with SLE.
