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   39799   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6533   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.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Inclusion Criteria:

    • Written informed consent, and assent when applicable for study participation must be obtained prior to any study related procedures being performed (local regulations are to be followed in determining the assent/consent requirements for children and parent[s]/guardian[s]) and according to international guidelines and/or applicable European Union guidelines.

    • Female and male aged 12 to 75 years, inclusively, at the time of Visit 1. For those patients, who are 17 on the day of Visit 1 but will turn 18 after this day, will be considered an adolescent for the purposes of this trial.

    • History of physician-diagnosed asthma requiring treatment with medium-to-high dose ICS (>250μg fluticasone dry powder formulation equivalents total daily dose) and a LABA, for at least 6 months prior to Visit 1.

    • Additional maintenance asthma controller medications that are locally approved in a country for the treatment of asthma (eg, LTRAs, tiotropium, cromone, theophylline, oral corticosteroid), and have been used for at least 30 days prior to Visit 1 are allowed.

    • At least 2 documented asthma exacerbations in the 12 months prior to the date informed consent, and assent, at least 1 of the 2 exacerbations should occur during the treatment of medium-to-high dose ICS-LABA, when applicable is obtained that required use of a systemic corticosteroid or a temporary increase from the patient’s usual maintenance dose of oral corticosteroid. For patients who are re-screened within 30 days of their screen failure date, the calculation of the 12 month period should be done from the original informed consent, and assent when applicable date.

    • Documented post-bronchodilator (post-BD) reversibility in FEV1 of ≥12% and ≥ 200 mL in FEV1 within 12 months prior to Visit 1. If historical documentation is not available, reversibility must be demonstrated and documented at Visit 2.

    • Fulfilment of at least 1 of the following conditions over the 7 days prior to randomization:
    - >2 days with a daytime or night time symptoms score >1
    - Rescue SABA use on >2 days
    - ≥1 nocturnal awakening due to asthma
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Exclusion Criteria:

    • Clinically important pulmonary disease other than asthma (eg, active lung infection, COPD, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, hypoventilation syndrome associated with obesity, lung cancer, alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency, and primary ciliary dyskinesia) or ever been diagnosed with pulmonary or systemic disease, other than asthma, that are associated with elevated peripheral eosinophil counts (eg, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis/mycosis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, hypereosinophilic syndrome).

    • Any disorder, including, but not limited to, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, neurological, musculoskeletal, infectious, endocrine, metabolic, haematological, psychiatric, or major physical impairment that is not stable in the opinion of the Investigator and could:
    - Affect the safety of the patient throughout the study
    - Influence the findings of the studies or their interpretations
    - Impede the patient’s ability to complete the entire duration of study.

    • Acute upper or lower respiratory infections requiring antibiotics or antiviral medication within 30 days prior to the date informed consent, and assent when applicable, is obtained or during the screening period.

    • Any clinically significant abnormal findings in physical examination, vital signs, haematology, clinical chemistry, or urinalysis during screening period, which in the opinion of the Investigator, may put the patient at risk because of his/her participation in the study, or may influence the results of the study, or the patient’s ability to complete entire duration of the study.

    • Current smokers or former smokers with a smoking history of > 10 pack-years.
