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   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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.

    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA-) exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD).
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Severe chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.
    Asthma
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Body processes [G] - Circulatory and Respiratory Physiological Phenomena [G09]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    This is a randomized controlled multicenter study that focuses on severe CRSwNP and asthma in AERD patients. Our specific research questions are:
    Does ASA desensitization reduce polyp size, symptoms, revision-rate, exacerbation-rate, costs and improve lung function more effectively than placebo? Can we discover clinical or biological markers predictive for the beneficial effect of AD?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Does ASA desensitization reduce polyp size, symptoms, revision-rate, exacerbation-rate, costs and improve lung function more effectively than placebo?
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    A total of 150 adult AERD patients with uncontrolled CRSwNP will be recruited in the Clinical Trial -part. This is a randomized double-blinded controlled trial with two intervention treatments. About 20% of participants of the Operative part, with uncontrolled AERD, will be recruited to participate the Clinical Trial -part. The patients undergo similar prior examinations as the patients participating The Operative part. Those negative to ASA-challenge test will not enter the Clinical Trial -part. All patients entering the Clinical Trial –part, have undergone earlier ethmoidal surgery (partial/total) and have not gained disease control. F-helicobacter antigen is tested and treatment is given if indicated. Both groups will undergo removal of polyps 4-6 weeks before start of trial medication.

    Inclusion criteria: Uncontrolled CRS according to EPOS 2012 criteria, endoscopic NP score ≥4 or SNOT22 ≥ 30, CT LM score total ≥ 12. Polypectomy is scheduled 1-2 months before start of ASA desensitization.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Exclusion criteria: Age <18 years, age > 65 years, complication of CRS (f.e. mucocele, invasive fungal rhinosinusitis), previous sinus surgery except medial anthrostomy and opening of bulla, bleeding diathesis, pregnancy/ breastfeeding, cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), sarcoidosis, granulomatosis with polyangitis (GPA), eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangitis (EGPA), immunosuppression (diagnosed SAD, CVI, HIV or use of biologicals/immunosuppressive medication), immunotherapy, Daily use of systemic corticosteroids (Prednisolon at least 10mg per day or equivalent), communication problems (f.e. neurological/psychiatric disease, language skills), unlikely to comply, other severe disease, uncontrolled asthma, ASA-challenge negative, gastric ulcer, anticoagulant treatment, SSRI-depression medication, beta-blocker or severe chronic urticaria.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary end points are change in nasal endoscopic polyp score, SNOT-22, and lung function tests 11 and 12 months post-starting with the treatment. Secondary end points include changes in hrQOL, acoustic rhinometry (ARM), peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF), olfaction test (Sniffin’ Sticks, identification and threshold), pathologic findings, safety and costs. The patient will know the treatment arm at 12 months post-starting with the treatment) and can discuss with the doctor of the need to continue or start with ASA-desensitization or another treatment, if needed.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Primary end points are change in nasal endoscopic polyp score, SNOT-22, and lung function tests 11 and 12 months post-starting with the treatment.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Follow-ups. The visits are before treatment and follow-up visits are once per month at the same time with the injection. The symptom questionnaire and interview of side-effects are performed during each visit. Lung function (eNO, nNO, PEF, spirometry) is monitored and the patient will visit doctor and/or nurse at 1, 5, 11, and 12 months post-starting with the treatment. Samples are taken before and after challenge and at 11 months post-starting with the treatment. We also monitor side-effects, exacerbations, need of medication (po. cortisocteroids; antibiotics) and satisfaction to treatment.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Secondary end points include changes in hrQOL, acoustic rhinometry (ARM), peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF), olfaction test (Sniffin’ Sticks, identification and threshold), pathologic findings, safety and costs. The patient will know the treatment arm at 12 months post-starting with the treatment) and can discuss with the doctor of the need to continue or start with ASA-desensitization or another treatment, if needed.
