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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    -To investigate effects of SAR440340 (anti-interleukin-33 [IL33] monoclonal antibody [mAb]) compared with placebo, on the annualized rate of moderate*-to-severe** acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD) over up to 52 weeks of treatment.
    - Moderate exacerbations are recorded by the Investigator and defined as AECOPD that require either systemic corticosteroids (such as intramuscular, intravenous or oral) and/or antibiotics.
    - Severe exacerbations are recorded by the Investigator and defined as AECOPD requiring hospitalization, emergency medical care visit or resulting in death.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To investigate effects of SAR440340 compared with placebo, on improving respiratory function, as assessed by prebronchodilator forced exploratory volume in 1 second (FEV1).
    - To evaluate effects of SAR440340 compared with placebo, on Post-bronchodilator FEV1.
    - To evaluate effects of SAR440340 compared with placebo, on duration from baseline to first moderate or severe AECOPD event
    - To evaluate effects of SAR440340 compared with placebo, on safety and tolerability.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Participants with a diagnosis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for at least 1 year (based on Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease [GOLD] definition.
    -Participants with moderate-to-severe COPD (post-bronchodilator Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 Second [FEV1]/forced vital capacity [FVC] <70% and post-bronchodilator FEV1 % predicted <80%,
    but ≥30%).
    -Participants with COPD Assessment Test (CAT) score ≥10 at Screening Visit 1 and Visit 2/Randomization.
    -Participants with reported history of signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis (chronic productive cough for 3 months in the year up to screening in a patient in whom other causes of chronic cough [e.g., gastroesophageal reflux, chronic rhinosinusitis, bronchiectasis] have been excluded).
    -Participants with a documented history (eg. medicla record verification) of ≥2 moderate exacerbations or ≥1 severe exacerbation within the year prior to screening. A moderate exacerbation is defined as an acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) requiring systemic corticosteroids (oral, intravenous, or intramuscular) and/or treatment with antibiotics (however, use of antibiotics alone does not qualify as a "moderate exacerbation" unless documentation is available that use of antibiotics was necessary for treatment of worsening symptoms of COPD). A severe exacerbation is defined as an AECOPD that required a hospitalization.
    - Participants with Standard of Care background therapy, for 3 months prior to Visit 2/Randomization and at a stable dose for at least 1 month prior to the screening, including either:
    -Double therapy: Long acting beta agonist (LABA) + Long acting muscarinic agnoist (LAMA) or inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) + LABA or ICS + LAMA.
    -Triple therapy: LABA + LAMA +ICS.
    - Current or former smokers with a smoking history of ≥10 packs/year.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    -Concomitant severe diseases or diseases for which the use of Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) (e.g., active pulmonary tuberculosis, etc.) or Long Acting Beta Agonists (LABA) are contraindicated (e.g., diagnosis of a history of significant cardiovascular diseases, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, hyperthyroidism, thyrotoxicosis, pheochromocytoma, hypokalemia).
    -Participants with Bronchial thermoplasty procedure (up to 3 years prior to Visit 1)
    -Participants with Chornic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) diagnosed within the 6 months prior to randomization.
    -A current diagnosis of asthma according to the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines.
    -Significant pulmonary disease other than COPD (e.g., lung fibrosis, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, bronchiectasis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, significant sleep apnea on Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure, etc) or another diagnosed pulmonary or systemic disease associated with elevated peripheral eosinophil counts.
    -Diagnosis of α-1 anti-trypsin deficiency.
    -Advanced COPD with need for chronic (>15 hours/day) oxygen support.
    -Participant with a moderate or severe Acute Exacerbation of COPD event within 4 weeks prior to screening.
    -A participant who has experienced an upper or lower respiratory tract infection within 4 weeks prior to Screening/Visit 1 or during the screening period.
    -Prior history of or planned pneumonectomy or lung volume reduction surgery.
