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   42766   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    4. Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) Total Functional Capacity Score (TFC) of 7 or more
    5. PCr of at least 32.4 seconds, measured by dynamic 31P-MRS of the calf muscles.
    6. Absence of evidence of any significant active or chronic disease (apart from HD), following a detailed medical and surgical history, a complete physical examination including vital signs, 12-lead ECG, haematology, blood chemistry, and urinalysis, that might interfere with the study activities or patient’s safety by participating in the study, as judged by the investigator. Psychiatric comorbidities to HD (such as a major depressive disorder), are allowed under the scrutiny of the investigator.
    7. Agrees to refrain from making any new, major life-style changes (e.g. starting a new diet or changing exercise pattern)
    8. Must agree to use adequate methods of contraception. Female subjects of childbearing potential must use two adequate forms of contraception, one of which must be a barrier method for the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last dose. Male subjects with a partner of childbearing potential must use two adequate forms of contraception, one of which must be a barrier method, for the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last dose.
    9. Able to participate and willing to give written informed consent and to comply with the study restrictions.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Positive test for drugs of abuse, such as metamphetamines and cocaine, at screening or pre-dose, except those prescribed by a physician for treatment of intercurrent medical issues due to HD.
    2. History (within 3 months of screening) of alcohol consumption exceeding 2 standard drinks per day on average. Alcohol consumption will be prohibited during study confinement and at least 24 hours before screening and before each scheduled visit.
    3. History of active malignancy within the last 5 years, with the exception of localized or in situ carcinoma (e.g., skin basal or squamous cell carcinoma).
    4. Positive Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), Hepatitis C antibody (HCV Ab), or human immunodeficiency virus antibody (HIV Ab) at screening.
