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   37217   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6123   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.

    3. Ability, in the opinion of the principal investigator, to understand the nature of the trial and follow protocol requirements, including the prescribed dosage regimens, tablet ingestion, and discontinuation of prohibited medication; and to read and understand written word in order to be reliably rated on assessment scales.
    4. Subjects with a DSM-5 diagnosis of bipolar I disorder displaying an acute manic episode with or without mixed features requiring hospitalization. Diagnosis confirmed by the MINI and a history of at least one previous manic episode with or without mixed features with manic symptoms of sufficient severity to require one of the following interventions: hospitalization or treatment with a mood stabilizer, or treatment with an antipsychotic agent. “Require” is defined as an intervention that occurred rather than one that was recommended.
    5. YMRS score of ≥ 24 at screening and baseline.
    6. Subjects who, in the investigator’s judgment, require treatment with an atypical antipsychotic medication for their bipolar I disorder.
    7. Subjects willing to discontinue all prohibited medications to meet protocol-required washouts prior to and during the trial period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

Also, subjects with borderline, paranoid, histrionic, schizotypal, schizoid, or antisocial personality disorder. All other current diagnoses must be discussed with the medical monitor.
    5. Subjects whose current manic episode has lasted for more than 4 weeks overall, or who have required hospitalization > 21 days for the current acute episode at the time of the screening visit, excluding hospitalization for psychosocial reasons.
    6. Subject with manic symptoms better accounted for by another general medical condition or direct physiological effect of substance (eg. medication)
    7. Subjects who have had electroconvulsive treatment within the past 2 months.
    8. Subjects with a positive drug screen for cocaine or other illicit drugs
    9. Abnormal laboratory test results, vital signs or ECG results, unless based on investigator's judgment the findings are not medically significant or would not affect the trial results.
    10. Rapid cyclers with more than 6 episodes in previous year
    11. Subjects with uncontrolled hypo/hyperthyroidism
    12. Subjects with uncontrolled hypertension or symptomatic hypotension or orthostatic hypotension.
    13. Subject with epilepsy or history of seizures

    Change from baseline to Day 21 of the double-blind treatment phase in the YMRS Total Score
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Baseline to Day 21
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The key secondary endpoint is the change from baseline to Day 21 in the double-blind treatment period in Clinical Global Impression – Bipolar (CGI-BP) severity of illness score in mania.
    Other secondary efficacy endpoints are as follows:
    1. Change from baseline in YMRS Total Score for each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period other than the Day 21 visit; 2. Change from baseline in CGI-BP severity of illness score in mania for each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period other than the Day 21 visit; 3. CGI-BP change from preceding phase score in mania at each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period; 4. YMRS response rate for each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period, where response is defined as ≥ 50% reduction in YMRS Total Score from baseline or YMRS Total Score ≤ 12; 5. YMRS remission rate for each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period, where remission is defined as YMRS Total Score ≤ 12; 6. CGI-BP change from preceding phase response rate in mania for each trial visit during the double-blind treatment period, where response is defined as a CGI-BP change from preceding phase score in mania of 1 or 2 (very much improved or much improved) from baseline
