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   41225   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6755   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary questions are whether taking empagliflozin pill once a day compared to an inactive pill (placebo) prevents:
    - hospitalization with heart failure or death from heart disease
    - death from any cause
    - hospitalization from any cause
    in people with kidney disease.

    Other questions include the safety and tolerability of empagliflozin compared to placebo.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Age >=18 years at Screening.

    Evidence of progressive CKD at risk of kidney disease progression is defined on the basis of local laboratory results recorded at least 3 months before and at the time of the Screening visit, and requires that:
    (a) CKD-EPI eGFR ≥20 <45 mL/min/1.73m²; or
    (b) CKD-EPI eGFR ≥45 <90 mL/min/1.73m2 with urinary albumin:creatinine ratio ≥200 mg/g (or protein:creatinine ratio ≥300 mg/g)

    Note: the number of participants with or without diabetes mellitus (of any type) will be at least one-third of each, and the number of participants with an eGFR >45 mL/min/1.73m2 limited to about one-third. The Steering Committee will monitor these proportions and will limit recruitment of particular categories of participant in whom sufficient numbers have already been screened or randomized.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    None of the following must be fulfilled:
    (i) Currently receiving SGLT-2 or SGLT-1/2 inhibitor;
    (ii) Diabetes mellitus type 2 and prior atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease with an eGFR >60 mL/min/1.73m2 at Screening;
    (iii) Receiving combined ACEi and ARB treatment;
    (iv) Maintenance dialysis, functioning kidney transplant, or scheduled living donor transplant;
    (v) Polycystic kidney disease;
    (vi) Previous or scheduled bariatric surgery;
    (vii) Ketoacidosis in the past 5 years;
    (viii) Symptomatic hypotension, or systolic blood pressure <90 or >180 mmHg at Screening;
    (ix) ALT or AST >3x ULN at Screening;
    (x) Hypersensitivity to empagliflozin or other SGLT-2 inhibitor;
    (xi) Any immunosuppression therapy in last 3 months (except prednisolone ≤10 mg or equivalent); or anyone currently on >10 mg prednisolone (or equivalent);
    (xii) Use of an investigational medicinal product in the 30 days prior to Screening visit;
    (xiii) Known to be poorly compliant with clinic visits or prescribed medication;
    (xiv) Medical history that might limit the individual’s ability to take trial treatments for the duration of the study (e.g. severe respiratory disease; history of cancer or evidence of spread within last 4 years, other than non-melanoma skin cancer; or recent history of alcohol or substance misuse);
    (xv) Current pregnancy, lactation or women of childbearing potential (WOCBP), unless using highly-effective contraception.

    In addition, individuals will be excluded at the Randomization visit if the participant:
    (i) Does not adhere to Run-in treatment;
    (ii) Is no longer willing to be randomized and followed for at least 3 years;
    (iii) Is considered by a local investigator not to be suitable for randomization; or
    (iv) Experiences ketoacidosis, heart attack, stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure, or hospitalization for urinary tract infection or acute kidney injury during Run-in.

    Note that individuals who do not fulfil one or more inclusion criteria, or who fulfil one or more exclusion criteria, may be re-screened and later become eligible.

    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Time to first occurrence of:

    a) Time to first hospitalization for heart failure or cardiovascular death;
    b) Occurrences of all-cause hospitalizations (first and recurrent);

This visit may occur earlier than their planned next 6-monthly visit. The end of the trial is then defined as the latest of the following two dates: 7 days after the last participant’s Final Follow-up visit, or the date of the last 4-week post-Final Follow-up blood draw.
