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   38529   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6333   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.

    2. To evaluate the ability of MK-7264 to provide a clinically significant improvement in cough specific quality of life
    3. To evaluate the efficacy of MK-7264 based on the proportion of participants with a clinically significant reduction from baseline in 24-hour coughs per hour
    4. To evaluate the efficacy of MK-7264 in improving self-rated cough severity
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Merck will conduct Future Biomedical Research on DNA specimens collected during this clinical trial. Such research is for biomarker testing to address emergent questions not described elsewhere in the protocol (as part of the main trial) and will only be conducted on specimens from appropriately consented subjects. The objective of collecting specimens for Future Biomedical Research is to explore and identify biomarkers that inform the scientific understanding of diseases and/or their therapeutic treatments. The overarching goal is to use such information to develop safer, more effective drugs, and/or to ensure that subjects receive the correct dose of the correct drug at the correct time.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Chest radiograph or computed tomography scan of the thorax (within 5 years of Screening/Visit 1 and after the onset of chronic cough) not demonstrating any abnormality considered to be significantly contributing to the chronic cough or any other clinically significant lung disease in the opinion of the principal investigator or the sub-investigator.
    2. Have chronic cough for ≥1 year and a diagnosis of refractory chronic cough or unexplained chronic cough.
    3. Have a score of ≥40 mm on the Cough Severity VAS at both the Screening and Baseline visits.

However the participant may participate in the main study without participating in future biomedical research.
    7. The participant is willing and able to comply with all aspects of the protocol, including demonstrating an ability to follow study procedures (including use of the digital cough recording device, and completion of the Cough Severity VAS, CSD, LCQ, and other protocol questionnaires) to the satisfaction of the investigator/qualified designee prior to randomization.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Current smoker.
    2. Individuals who have given up smoking within 12 months of Screening/Visit 1.

    5. History of upper or lower respiratory tract infection or recent clinically significant change in pulmonary status within 4 weeks of Screening/Visit 1.
    6. History of chronic bronchitis, defined as a cough that produces a clinically significant amount of sputum (greater than approximately 1 tablespoon of phlegm) that occurs every day for at least 3 months in a row, with those periods occurring at least 2 years in a row.

    serum creatinine compared to a value obtained at least 6 months prior to Screening/Visit 1).
    9. Has a history of malignancy ≤5 years prior to signing informed consent except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer or in situ cervical cancer.
    10. Is, at the time of signing informed consent, a user of recreational or illicit drugs or has had a recent history (within the last year) of drug or alcohol abuse or dependence.
    11. Screening systolic blood pressure >160 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure >90 mm Hg.

    20. Has a history or current evidence of any condition, therapy, lab abnormality, or other circumstance that may increase the risk associated with study participation or study intervention administration or may interfere with the interpretation of study results, and in the judgment of the investigator or Sponsor, would make the participant inappropriate for entry into this study.
    21. Is or has an immediate family member (eg, spouse, parent/legal guardian, sibling or child) who is investigational site or Sponsor staff directly involved with this study.
