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   41200   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Evolution of the Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) at 6 months.
    The CDAI is a composite score combining clinical items only: Tender 28-joint count, Swollen 28-joint count, Patient Global Disease Activity (PGA), Evaluator’s Global Disease Activity (EGA). This score provides a numerical assessment reflecting disease activity independently of acute phase reactants. It is well known that acute phase reactants (erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP) levels) exhibit clear improvement with tocilizumab, better than with other treatments, but not necessarily with an associated clinical significance.
    Efficacité à 6 mois : score CDAI, critère composite permettant d’obtenir un score numérique qui reflète l’activité de la maladie sans influence du niveau d’inflammation biologique regroupant :
    o nombre d’articulations douloureuses,
    o nombre d’articulations gonflées,
    o appréciation de l’activité de la maladie par le patient et par le médecin
    En effet, les paramètres inflammatoires biologiques (VS et surtout CRP) sont connus pour être très nettement améliorés par le tocilizumab plus que par les autres traitements, sans qu’il n’y ait nécessairement de signification clinique.

    At inlusion , 3, 6 and 12 months
    A l'inclusion, 3, 6 et 12 mois
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1/ Secondary outcomes will assess treatment response. Comparisons will be made between the baseline level (M0) and the level observed at 3, 6 and 12 months for :
    - DAS28-ESR and DAS28-CRP
    - SDAI :
    - HAQ, SF-36 FLARE-RA quality of life score
    - PGA and EGA VAS
    - CDAI and DAS28-ESR LDA (low disease activity)
    - Proportion of patients achieving good or moderate European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) therapeutic response (DS28-ESR)
    - Proportion of patients achieving ACR20, ACR50, and ACR70 responses

    - Proportion of patients presenting at least one side effect, according to NCI-CTCAE v4.0 scale: (Platelets, AST/ALT, Triglycerides, Neutropenia)
    - Rates of treatment withdrawals for intolerance
    - Rates of treatment withdrawals for intolerance requiring in-hospital care
    - Rate of rescue medication use authorized by the protocol and treatment dose

    o taux de patients en faible activité de la maladie
    o taux de patients en réponse thérapeutique EULAR bonne ou modérée
    o taux de patients en réponse thérapeutique ACR20, ACR50 et ACR70
    o taux de patients en maintien thérapeutique
    Evolution à 3 et 12 mois : score CDAI

    2/ Tolérance à 3, 6 et 12 mois :
    o taux de patients présentant au moins un effet secondaire parmi, selon l’échelle NCI-CTCAE v4.0 : (Plaquettes, ASAT/ALAT, Triglycérides, Neutrophiles)
    o taux d’arrêts de traitement pour intolérance
    o taux d’épisodes infectieux sévères (conduisant à une hospitalisation)
    o taux d’évènements cardiovasculaires
    o taux de perturbation du bilan lipidique et degré
    o taux d’arrêts de traitement pour intolérance conduisant à une hospitalisation
    o taux de recours à des traitements d’urgence autorisés par le protocole et leur dose

    3/ Les critères radiobiologiques permettant une meilleure compréhension physiopathologique sont :
    o A 6 mois, évolution de l’échographie-doppler articulaire des mains et poignets (nombre de synovites et grades d’hyperhémie doppler)
    o A 12 mois, évolution du score de Sharp sur les radiographies des mains, poignets et pieds
    o A 3 et 6 mois, évolution du taux du facteur de croissance endothélial (VEGF)
