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   36091   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5934   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.

    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    PNH is an acquired, rare, clonal, non-malignant hematologic disease characterized by complement-mediated RBC hemolysis with or without hemoglobinuria, an increased susceptibility to thrombotic episodes, and/or some degree of bone marrow dysfunction.
    PNH is caused by complement-mediated lysis of erythrocyte clones lacking functional CD55 and CD59 on their surface. These RBCs are particularly susceptible to the MAC and have been shown to lyse readily in the presence of complement activation.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    PNH is a rare disorder causing red blood cells to break down too early. Patients may still suffer from anemia even when treated with standard of care.

    After completion of the 52-week treatment period (Week 48), subjects will be offered entry into an open label extension study. Should the subject not enter the open label extension study they will exit the study and return to the site for 2 additional safety visits 6 weeks apart. Subjects who withdraw from treatment prior to the Week 48 visit may continue their participation in the study and return to the study site for their scheduled study procedures, with exception of APL-2 administration.
