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   40109   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6567   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.

    A.3Full title of the trial
    A RANDOMIZED, DOUBLE-BLIND, ACTIVE-CONTROLLED PHASE 3 STUDY EVALUATING THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF ABP 959 COMPARED WITH ECULIZUMAB IN ADULT SUBJECTS WITH PAROXYSMAL NOCTURNAL HEMOGLOBINURIA (PNH)
    A.3.1Title of the trial for lay people, in easily understood, i.e. non-technical, language
    This trial is designed to determine what effects the investigational medicine, ABP 959, has on the human body, and what effects the body has on the
    investigational medicine after you have been given it, and if this is
    comparable to what is seen for the licensed medicine, eculizumab, in
    patients with Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH).
    This study will assess if the investigational medicine is safe and effective in
    treating PNH compared to the licensed medicine.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary Endpoint for Parallel Comparison:
    • Hemolysis, as measured by LDH at week 27
    Primary Endpoint for Crossover Comparison:
    • Hemolysis, as measured by the time-adjusted AUEC of LDH from week 13 to week 27, from week 39 to 53 and from week 65 to week 79
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The primary analysis of the primary endpoint of week 27 LDH for the parallel comparison will be conducted on the Full Analysis Set (FAS), consisting of all randomized subjects, with treatment as randomized in Period 1 regardless of treatment actually received.
    The primary analysis of the primary endpoint of time-adjusted AUEC of LDH for the crossover comparison will be conducted on the Modified Full Analysis Set (mFAS), consisting of all randomized subjects who have an LDH-time profile evaluable for the time-adjusted AUEC within at least one of the following 14-week assessment periods: week 13 to week 27, week 39 to week 53 and week 65 to week 79, according to treatment per the randomized sequence regardless of treatment actually received.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Total complement (CH50), total hemoglobin, serum-free hemoglobin, haptoglobin, bilirubin, degree of hemoglobinuria, and type III erythrocytes at week 27, week 39, week 53, and post-crossover week 65 and week 79
    • Crossover comparison of hemolysis as measured by LDH at week 53 and week 79
    • Lactate dehydrogenase-time profile
    • Red blood cell transfusion
    • Pharmacokinetic area under the curve (AUC) of ABP 959 and eculizumab from week 13 to week 15, and trough PK
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The analysis of secondary endpoints (except for PK) will be conducted on the FAS. Total complement, total hemoglobin, serum-free hemoglobin, haptoglobin, bilirubin, degree of hemoglobinuria, and type III erythrocytes (%) at weeks 27, 39, 53, 65, and 79 will be summarized descriptively. For the endpoint of RBC transfusions, summary statistics for the number of packed red cells transfused per month after week 13 will be presented. A descriptive summary of LDH at each time point through the end of the study (EOS) visit will be presented. Individual and mean LDH-time profile through EOS visit will also be presented graphically.
    The secondary endpoint of crossover comparison of LDH at week 53 and week 79 will be evaluated descriptively.
