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   7259   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects who meet all of the following criteria are eligible for the study:
    - Signed informed consent form (ICF) obtained prior to any study-related
    procedures and/or assessments performed.
    - Males or females of non-child-bearing potential, aged ≥40 years on the
    day of signing the ICF.
    - A diagnosis of IPF within 5 years prior to the screening visit as per
    applicable American Thoracic Society (ATS)/European Respiratory
    Society (ERS)/Japanese Respiratory Society (JRS)/Latin American
    Thoracic Association (ALAT) guideline. Subjects receiving local standard
    of care for the treatment of IPF, defined as either pirfenidone, or nintedanib at a stable dose for at least 8 weeks before screening, and during screening; or neither pirfenidone nor nintedanib (for any reason). A stable dose is defined as the highest tolerated dose. Prednisone at steady dose ≤10 mg/day or equivalent glucocorticoid dose is allowed (stabilized 4 weeks prior to screening and continued without variation of dose or regimen). Supportive care like supplemental oxygen or pulmonary rehabilitation is allowed.
    - Chest HRCT historically performed within 12 months prior to the
    screening visit and according to the minimum requirements for IPF
    diagnosis by central review based on subject's HRCT only (if no lung
    biopsy [LB] available), or based on both HRCT and LB (with application
    of the different criteria in either situation). If an evaluable HRCT <12
    months is not available, a HRCT can be performed at screening to
    determine eligibility, according to the same requirements as the
    historical HRCT.
    - Meeting all of the following criteria at screening and during the
    screening period:
    * FVC ≥50% predicted of normal
    * Disease progression, defined as a decline of FVC (% predicted or mL)
    at the investigator's discretion, during the 9 months prior to the
    screening period and confirmed at the screening visit
    * Diffusing capacity for the lungs for carbon monoxide (DLCO) ≥30%
    predicted of normal (corrected for hemoglobin)
    * Ratio of forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) to FVC ≥0.70
    - In a stable condition and suitable for study participation based on the
    results of a medical history, physical examination, vital signs, 12-lead
    ECG, and laboratory evaluation. Stable condition is based on the clinical
    judgment of the investigator, co-morbidities should be treated according
    to the local applicable guidelines. Concomitant medication for chronic
    comorbidities should be stabilized from 4 weeks before screening and
    during the screening period (stable defined as no clinically relevant
    change according to the investigator's judgement).
    - Able to walk at least 150 meters during the 6MWT at screening;
    without having a contraindication to perform the 6MWT, or without a
    condition putting the subject at risk of falling during the test (at
    investigator's discretion). The use of a cane is allowed, the use of a
    stroller is not allowed at all under any circumstances.

    For a complete overview of the inclusion criteria refer to the protocol.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Subjects meeting one or more of the following criteria cannot be
    selected for this study:
    - Known hypersensitivity to any of the IMP ingredients or a history of a
    significant allergic reaction to any drug as determined by the
    investigator (e.g. anaphylaxis requiring hospitalization).
    - Current immunosuppressive condition (e.g. human immunodeficiency
    virus [HIV] infection, congenital, acquired, medication induced, organ
    - Positive blood testing for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBs Ag) or
    hepatitis virus antibody (if positive, confirmed by hepatitis C virus (HCV)
    RNA positivity). Note: Subjects with a resolved hepatitis A at least 3
    months prior to first dosing of the IMP can be included.
    - History of malignancy within the past 5 years (except for carcinoma in
    situ of the uterine cervix, basal cell carcinoma of the skin that has been
    treated with no evidence of recurrence, and prostate cancer medically
    managed through active surveillance or watchful waiting, and squamous
    cell carcinoma of the skin if fully resected).
    - Acute IPF exacerbation within 3 months prior to screening and during the screening period.
    - Lower respiratory tract infection requiring antibiotics within 4 weeks
    prior to screening and/or during the screening period.
    - Interstitial lung disease associated with known primary diseases (e.g.
    sarcoidosis, amyloidosis), exposures (e.g. radiation, silica, asbestos, coal
    dust), and drugs (e.g. amiodarone).
    - History of lung volume reduction surgery or lung transplant.
    - Unstable cardiovascular, pulmonary (other than IPF) or other disease
    within 6 months prior to screening or during the screening period (e.g.
    coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke).
    - Subject participating in a drug, device or biologic investigational
    research study, concurrently with the current study, within 12 weeks or
    5-half-lives of the agent whichever is longer, prior to screening, or prior
    participation in an investigational drug antibody/biologic study within 6
    months prior to screening.
