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   35654   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5853   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Multiple sclerosis
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To perform brain PET imaging with the [11C]PK11195 radioligand to 20 RRMS patients (age 40-55) who are using teriflunomide treatment and to 10 RRMS patients not on therapy. Purpose is to compare the binding of the radioligand between the two different time points and compare the outcomes in the cohorts to see whether teriflunomide treatment alters microglial activation in RRMS.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    •To evaluate the total lesion load of the white matter MS plaques at different time points using MRI
    •To measure total brain, white matter (WM) and gray matter (GM) volumes using MRI at different time points
    •To determine MD (mean diffusity) and FA (fractional anisotropy) using DTI (diffusion tensor imaging) at different time points
    •To correlate the baseline microglial activation status to the clinical outcome parameters at the end of the study
    •To correlate the baseline microglial activation status to the MRI parameters
    •To compare microglial activation in the study group to microglial activation in a group of age-matched healthy controls
    •To compare microglial activation in the study group (in the beginning of the study) to microglial activation in an independent group of age-matched untreated MS-patients
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    There is a potential biomarker sub-study and therefore the biological samples are collected. The exact nature of the biomarker sub-study will depend on the outcome of the PET imaging and clinical follow-up results.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Signing the consent form
    -Having used teriflunomide treatment for at least 6 months
    -40−55 years of age at the time of signing the research consent form
    -MS diagnosis in accordance with either the Poser or McDonald criteria
    -EDSS 2−6.5
    -Clear lesion load in brain MRI (>9 T2 lesions)
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    -Patients suffering from another brain disease in addition to MS
    -Significant pathology in the MRI scan other than MS-related pathology
    -Steroid treatment within 4 weeks prior to the scan
    -Patients suffering from claustrophobia or panic disorder, or patients who have exhibited hypersensitivity of PET markers (practical obstacle to the scan)
    -Exposure to experimental radioactivity in the last 12 months such that the dosimetry threshold would be exceeded due to participation in the study
    -Severe hepatic impairment
    -Pregnant women, or women of childbearing potential who are not using reliable contraception during treatment with teriflunomide and thereafter as long as its plasma levels are above 0.02 mg/l.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Change in microglia-activity in RRMS patients on teriflunomide treatment as measured by PET imaging and [11C]PK11195 radioligand.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Baseline and 1 year.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Comparison of the following MRI parameters
    -Evaluation of white matter lesion load in MRI scans (impact of treatment on disease inflammatory activity)
    -Evaluation of the total volume of the brain, the volume of white matter and of grey matter in MRI scans (impact of treatment on brain atrophy)
    -DTI (diffusion tensor imaging) will be used to measure the MD (mean diffusivity) and FA (fractional anisotropy) MRI scans (impact of treatment on brain atrophy)
    All the above mentioned MRI variables will also be correlated to microglial activation and clinical parameters.

    Clinical outcome parameters (EDSS, MSFC, MSIS29) and quality of life measurements (SF36, EQ5-D) will be measured and will be correlated with PET and MRI findings to evaluate whether high microglial activation is predictive of higher likelihood of progression and other measures of disability.

    Cognitive variables measured using the BICAMS test battery will be correlated with PET and MRI findings.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    MRI at baseline and yearly thereafter.
    Clinical outcome parameters and quality of life measurements: baseline and yearly thereafter.
    Cognitive variables: baseline and after 3 years.
