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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 ).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The purpose of this study is to evaluate a single application of AL-60371/AL-817 Otic Suspension relative to ototopical CIPRODEX for sustained clinical cure, microbiological success, and time to cessation of otorrhea.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Prior to the start of the study, the study protocol, the informed consent and assent documents, patient instruction sheets, the Investigator’s Brochure, as well as any advertising materials used to recruit patients were submitted to institutional review boards (IRBs) and independent ethics committees (IECs). The IRB/IECs reviewed all documents and approved required documents; copies of the approval letters were provided to Alcon. Consistent with both the IRB/IEC’s requirements and all applicable regulations, the Investigators periodically provided study updates to the IRB/IEC. A patient or parent/legal guardian (if necessary, a legally authorized representative) provided informed consent, and children signed an approved assent form when appropriate. This study was conducted in accordance with Good Clinical Practices (GCP) and the ethical principles that have their origins in the Declaration of Helsinki.

    Proportion of Subjects With Sustained Clinical Cure at Day 3 Visit

    A sustained clinical cure at Day 3 was attained if otorrhea was absent at the Day 3 visit and continued to be absent through the last study visit (Day 8 or Early Exit). Proportion of subjects is reported as a percentage. This analysis population includes all randomized subjects who received at least 1 dose of investigational product and were culture positive at the Day 1 visit in the study ear.

    Proportion of Subjects With Microbiological Success at the Day 8 Visit
    End point description
    Microbiological success was attained if all pre-therapy bacteria were absent in the Day 8 specimen. In a subject with no otorrhea at Day 8, eradication of pre-therapy bacteria was presumed and the subject was considered a microbiological success. This analysis population includes all randomized subjects who received at least 1 dose of investigational product and were culture positive at the Day 1 visit in the study ear.

    End point title
    Median Time (in Days) to Cessation of Otorrhea
    End point description
    Median time (in days) to the cessation of otorrhea (ie, otorrhea was absent) was calculated as the number of days from the Day 1 (Visit 1) to the absence of otorrhea in the affected ear(s) as recorded by the parent/guardian via the twice-daily diary. Cessation of otorrhea was defined as ending on the first day that otorrhea was absent from the affected ear(s) and remained absent for any/all subsequent diary entries. This analysis population includes all randomized subjects who received at least 1 dose of investigational product and were culture positive at the Day 1 visit in the study ear.
