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   7264   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.

    Safety is defined as the absence of an ATIMP-related reduction in visual acuity by 15 ETDRS letters or more, severe unresponsive inflammation, infective endophthalmitis, ocular malignancy and grade III or above non-ocular SUSAR.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary research objective is to determine whether AAV2/5-hRKp.RPGR for RGPR-ORF15 gene replacement in the retina can slow/halt progressive deterioration in retinal structure or visual function, and improve retinal function, visual function and quality of life in patients with RPGR XLRP.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion in the trial will be limited to individuals who meet the following criteria:
    1. Are males aged 5 years or older
    2. Have X-linked retinitis pigmentosa confirmed by a retinal specialist (CI or PI)
    3. Have relatively symmetrical retinal disease - both structurally and functionally defined as < 15 letters [Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA)] difference between eyes
    4. Have a predicted disease-causing missense or null mutation in RPGR confirmed in an
    accredited laboratory
    5. Evidence of relative preservation of retinal structure at the macula
    6. Evidence of impaired navigation in dim illumination on Mobility assessment in both eyes monocularly; defined by either an inability to complete the visual mobility maze at the 1 lux level, or the time taken to complete the maze at either 1 or 4 lux being greater or equal to 12 seconds.
    7. Are able to give informed consent or assent, with the guidance of their parent/guardian where appropriate: children aged 5-6 years will not be asked to provide assent
    8. Are able to undertake age appropriate clinical assessments at the trial sites as specified in the protocol
    9. Are willing to use barrier and spermicide form of contraception or will be sexually abstinent (when this is in line with the participant’s preferred and usual lifestyle) for at least 12 months following ATIMP administration
    10. Are willing to give consent for the use of blood and blood components collected through the trial for the investigation of immune responses to the ATIMP
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Individuals will be excluded if they meet any of the following criteria:
    1. Have a known allergy to any of the non-investigational drugs to be used in the trial as defined in Section 5.4.1
    2. Have participated in another research study involving an investigational medicinal therapy for ocular disease within the last 6 months
    3. Have any other condition that the CI/PI considers makes them inappropriate for entry into the trial, inclusive of but not limited to a history of the following:
    o Uncontrolled hypertension defined as a systolic value ≥160mmHg or diastolic value ≥100mmHg.
    o Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus defined as an HbA1c ≥9% (75mmol/mol) at screening.
    o Uncontrolled heart failure (NYHA class II-IV).
    o Any history of tuberculosis
    o Chronic kidney disease (defined as eGFR ≤60ml/min calculated using Cockroft Gault or MDRD equations.
    o Immunocompromised state (including long term immunosuppressant therapy).
    o Osteoporosis (defined as presence of 1 or more non-traumatic “fragility” fractures or proven BMD of 2.5SD less than anticipated as demonstrated on DEXA scan).
    o Active peptic ulcer disease or uncontrolled gastro-oesophageal reflux. o Severe affective disorder or past history of drug induced psychosis
    4. Use of high dose regular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs at the time of screening.
    5. Have an ocular or systemic disorder that may preclude subretinal surgery and/or interfere with interpretation of the study results
    6. Have had intraocular surgery within 3 months of screening
    7. Have recently (within 4 weeks of last dose of concomitant immunosuppressive therapy) received a live vaccine
    8. Have a condition that requires glucocorticoid replacement therapy, such as in endocrine diseases, if this would interfere with the immunosuppressive regime.
    9. Have known chronic hepatitis B infection as indicated by detectable surface antigen. Entry with negative surface antigens but positive hepatitis core antibody will be allowed however additional monitoring throughout the trial may be required.
    10. Are unwilling to consider the possibility of entry into a subsequent longer term follow up study
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome is defined as absence of any of the below occurring during the 9 weeks following administration, at least possibly related to the ATIMP, not surgery alone:
    Reduction in visual acuity by 15 ETDRS letters or more
    Severe unresponsive inflammation
    Infective endophthalmitis
    Ocular malignancy
    Grade III or above non-ocular SUSAR
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    This endpoint will be evaluated at 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks, 24 weeks, 9 months, 12 months, and 18 months after subretinal administration of the intervention.

    Safety will be assessed for 12 months after the intervention in this study, and a further 4 years in a separate follow on study.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary outcomes are measures of the efficacy of the ATIMP; these will be performed on an individual participant basis and will be descriptive in nature.
    - Slowing or halting of progressive deterioration in retinal structure or visual function that is greater than the baseline variation for that test and is sustained for at least 2 consecutive assessments. Slowing or halting of progression over time may be facilitated by comparing identical structural and functional assessments acquired prior to intervention/injection to better determine rate of change over time in this slowly progressive disease #.
    #Historical images will be collected wherever possible with written informed consent from the participants
    - Any improvements in visual function from baseline that are greater than the baseline variation and are sustained for at least two consecutive assessments.
    - Any improvement in retinal function from pre-intervention that is greater than basleine variation and measurable by electrophysiology (pattern ERG, multifocal ERG or full-field ERG).
    - Quality of life will be measured by the Impact of Visual Impairment (IVI) questionnaire, the low Luminance Questionnaire (LLQ) and the EQ5D-5L and EQ5D-5Y as appropriate.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Secondary endpoints will be evaluated at various time-points between 12 weeks and 18 months after subretinal administration of the intervention.
