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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects must meet all of the following criteria for inclusion in the study at the Screening Visit and at the Baseline Visit (except as noted):

    consent and assent (where applicable) for this study must be signed before any protocol required procedures are performed.
    2. Subjects must be male and between 4 and 8 years of age (inclusive) at the Screening Visit.

    dystrophin gene sequencing consistent with DMD; AND in the opinion of the Investigator, a typical clinical profile consistent with DMD.
    4. Subjects taking approved treatments for DMD (by a Health Authority) that target dystrophin gene mutations (eg, eteplirsen or ataluren) may be enrolled in the study if they have been on a stable dose for 30 days prior to the first dose of study drug, and plan to
    remain on that dose throughout the study
    5. Subjects should have serum potassium within the reference range at screening. Subjects who have potassium levels below the lower limit of normal may be given potassium supplements and then retested within the 28 day screening period.
    6. Subjects and/or subjects’ parent or legal guardian must be able to communicate effectively with study personnel.
    7. Subjects and subjects’ parent or legal guardian must be able and willing to follow all protocol requirements and study restrictions.
    8. Subjects and subjects’ parent or legal guardian must be able and willing to return for all study visits.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects are ineligible for study participation if they meet any of the following criteria at the Screening Visit and at the Baseline Visit (except as note):
    1. Subject is from a vulnerable population (excluding pediatric populations), as defined by the US CFR Title 45, Part 46, Section 46.111(b) and other local and national regulations, including but not limited to, employees (temporary, part-time, full-time, etc) or family members of the research staff conducting the study, or of the sponsor, or of the clinical research organization, or of the IRB/IEC.
    2. Subject has had previous systemic treatment with corticosteroids within 2 months prior to the Screening Visit. Exception: In subjects who were down-titrated to a physiological dose of corticosteroids (ie, 3 mg/m2 of prednisone or deflazacort) a maximum of 1 month of no greater than a physiological dose followed by 1 month completely off corticosteroids prior to the Screening Visit will be acceptable for study entry. Transient previous use of corticosteroids will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the sponsor or designee. The use of topical or intra-articular corticosteroids is permitted during the study.
    3. Subject has been treated with immunosuppressants, or mineralocorticoids (including, but not limited to, spironolactone, eplerone, and carrenone) in the 3 months prior to the Screening Visit.
    4. Subject has taken any investigation medication within 30 days or 5 half lifes (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug.
    5. Subject is unwilling to receive, or is intolerant of, SC injections.
    6. Subject has symptomatic cardiomyopathy in the opinion of the investigator.
    7. Subject is unable to complete the 10 meter Walk/Run test at the Screening and/or Baseline Visit.

    Recent major surgery (within 24 weeks prior to the Screening Visit).
    11. Subject has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
    12. Subject has a history of chronic active hepatitis including acute or chronic hepatitis B, or acute or chronic hepatitis C.
    13. Subject has a history of tuberculosis (TB) infection, any signs/symptoms of TB, or any close contact with an individual with an active TB infection.
    14. Subject has known immune compromised status (not related to disease/condition under study), including but not limited to, individuals who have undergone organ transplantation or who are known to be positive for the human immunodeficiency virus.
    15. Subject has any solid tumor or hematologic malignancy currently diagnosed or undergoing therapy, or has received therapy for any solid tumor or hematological malignancy in the 5 years prior to the Screening Visit; with the exception of treated and cured basal cell

    Positive or indeterminate interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) for TB.
    17. Subject has any other clinically significant disease, disorder or laboratory abnormality which, in the opinion of the investigator (by its nature or by being inadequately controlled), might put the patient at risk due to participation in the study, or may influence the results of the study or the subject’s ability to complete the study.
