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   41501   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6826   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    AntibioTx has developed a topical product (ATx201) for treatment of infected eczema and infected atopic dermatitis. These infections are predominantly caused by Staphyllococcus aureus and various species of Streptococcus. Treatment of these infections is plagued by inactivity of or resistance towards the main topical antibiotics (fucidic acid, mupirocin and retapamulin).
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    To treat skin infections with bacteria. AntibioTx develops topical formulations containing an Antibiotic substance.
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Bacterial Infections and Mycoses [C01]

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate the safety and tolerability of new topical formulations of ATx201 in healthy volunteers, and in a population of patients with atopic dermatitis and to assess efficacy of ATx201 in eradicating S. aureus compared to vehicle after 4 and 7 days of treatment. Therefore, in Phase I of the study, three formulations of ATx201 including the respective Placebos will be applied to healthy volunteers. One formulation will advance into Phase II, where patients will be treated with the respective formulation or Placebo.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Phase I:
    - To determine the local and systemic exposure of ATx201
    - Exploratory Objective:
    To collect illustrative information on local tolerability of ATx201
    To determine the best tolerable formulation to advance into Phase II.
    Phase II:
    - To assess the impact of ATx201 on the treated atopic dermatitis lesion
    - To determine the systemic exposure of ATx201
    - Exploratory Objectives:
    To assess the impact of ATx201 and formulation on pruritus (using a VAS scale)
    To collect illustrative information on efficacy of ATx201
    To assess the EASI score per single lesion
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
