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 ).

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    In two cohorts of patients (adult and paediatric) with a particular genetic cause of cystic fibrosis (deltaF 508, the most common and one of the most severe types), can patients tolerate an existing medicine (cysteamine) while taking a food supplement (EGCG). The primary outcome measure is discontinuation of the cysteamine. There are well known adverse effects for cysteamine. We also want to capture the suspected ADRs from this medication.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    For a subgroup of patients, we want to measure blood levels of cysteamine, to ensure we are dosing appropriately. In addition, in all the participants, we want to repeat the tests of effectiveness (sweat test), as they have only been done in a small population before, and not in children.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    1. Discontinuation of the study drug
    2. Adverse effects of cysteamine in homozygous ∆508 cystic fibrosis adult and paediatric patients


    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The study will last for 6 weeks. This comprises 4 weeks where the cysteamine dose is increased (as per usual dosing in cystinosis) while a single dose of EGCG is administered. On week 5, the participants remain on the dose of cysteamine, but a single dose increase in EGCG is undertaken. In the final week, no medications are used.

    Patients will have weekly review to ensure they are able to take the medications, and to assess for adverse effects of the medications. Safety bloods will also be undertaken weekly.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Plasma concentration of cysteamine and EGCG at set time points in ∆F508 cystic fibrosis patients.
    2. Change in sweat test chloride result with each dose escalation of cysteamine
    3. Change in sweat test chloride result with cysteamine used in combination with multiple daily dose EGCG
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    A subset of patients (10 per cohort) will have additional blood taken for PK analysis at their weekly reviews.

    All participants will have a weekly sweat test, as a means to replicate the reduction in sweat chloride seen in adult patients and establish if this occurs in paediatric patients.
