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   40977   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6698   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of subcutaneous immunoglobulin octanorm in the maintenance treatment of DM patients who have previously responded to IGIV therapy.
    Protection of trial subjects
    This trial was conducted in accordance to the principles of ICH- GCP, ensuring that the rights, safety and well-being of patients are protected and in consistency with the Declaration of Helsinki. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were carefully defined in order to protect subjects from contraindications, interactions with other medication and risk factors associated with the investigational medicinal product. Throughout the study safety was assessed, such as occurrence of AEs, local injection site reactions, safety labs, vital signs and physical examinations.

    Arm description
    Subjects were to be randomly assigned to either 0.5 g/kg/week octanorm or to placebo. A dose of 0.5 g/kg/week had to be administered subcutaneously every week (±2 days). A minimum interval of 4 days must have been kept in between two consecutive subcutaneous infusion cycles.

    Dosage and administration details
    The only patient treated in the study was assigned to octanorm. Octanorm had to be administered subcutaneously every week (±2 days) using a syringe driver for precise infusion rates. The total dose/volume of a weekly infusion was calculated on the basis of the body weight (0.5 g/kg). The weekly infusion was performed in two separate sessions (= 1 infusion cycle for a given weekly administration). An infusion cycle comprises both sessions to be administered on 1 or 2 days, either on the same day or on two consecutive days or with maximum one day in between two sessions.

    Clinically important deterioration [1]
    End point description
    Primary endpoint is defined as the proportion of patients with clinically important deterioration during the treatment period up to Week 32. A patient with clinically important deterioration is defined as a patient with 1) MMT 8 worsening ≥ 6 points (scale of 150) OR CDASI worsening ≥ 5 points, AND 2) a Physician’s Global Disease Activity VAS worsening ≥ 2 cm.

    End point timeframe

    Notes
    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: In view of the limited data available (only from one patient), no efficacy and safety analyses were performed.

    Interruption
    Restart date
    29 Nov 2018
    The study was designed to include patients from the GAM10-08 study, a prospective, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Phase III Study Evaluating Efficacy and Safety of Octagam 10% in Patients With Dermatomyositis (“ProDERM study”) as roll-over patients and new patients meeting eligibility criteria. The first site was initiated on 11-Jul-2018 and until November 2018 only one patient had been randomized. Between July and November 2018 more than 10 potentially eligible roll over patients refused to participate in the study SCGAM-02. Based on the analysis of the reasons of the patients’ refusals it was decided to terminate the study because of the higher than expected study complexity and slow enrolment.
