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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of rapastinel (225 or 450 mg, IV, weekly or clinically driven schedule) versus placebo in the maintenance treatment of MDD, as measured by time to relapse during the 52 weeks of the double-blind treatment period (DBTP)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To characterize the efficacy of rapastinel (225 or 450 mg, IV, weekly or clinically driven schedule) versus placebo in the maintenance treatment of MDD, as measured by change from baseline on the Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) at each postbaseline timepoint during the DBTP.

    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of rapastinel (225 or 450 mg, IV, weekly or clinically driven schedule) in the maintenance treatment of MDD, as evaluated by AEs, clinical laboratory measures, electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital signs, and Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C SSRS).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Sparse pharmacokinetic (PK) samples will be taken from patients

    of rapastinel using a validated bioanalytical method.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Written informed consent, obtained from the patient before the initiation of any study specific procedures

Normal physical-examination findings, clinical-laboratory test results, and ECG results from Visit 1 or abnormal results that are determined to be not clinically significant with regard to participation in the study by the investigator (Note: Because Visit 1 ECG and laboratory results will not be available on the day of Visit 1, patients can be discontinued at Visit 2 if upon receipt of results the investigator determines clinically significant abnormalities are present.)
    5. If female of childbearing potential, has a negative serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) pregnancy test. Because Visit 1 pregnancy test results will not be available on the day of Visit 1, patients can be discontinued at Visit 2 if Visit 1 pregnancy test is positive.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Positive result at Visit 1 from the urine drug screen (UDS) test for any prohibited medication. Exception: patients with a positive UDS at Visit 1 for opiates or episodic use of benzodiazepines may be allowed in the study as described more detailed in the protocol
    (Note: Because Visit 1 UDS results will not be available on the day of Visit 1, patients can be discontinued at Visit 2 if upon receipt of results the investigator determines exclusionary results are present.)
    2. Suicide risk, as determined by meeting any of the following criteria:
    a. A suicide attempt within the past year
    b. Significant risk, as judged by the investigator, based on the psychiatric interview or information collected in the C-SSRS at Visit 1
    c. MADRS Item 10 score ≥ 5 on the MADRS at Visit 1 of this study or at any visit during participation in the lead-in study
    3. At imminent risk of injuring self or others or causing significant damage to property, as judged by the investigator

Any change in overall medical condition since entry in to the lead-in study that is determined by the investigator to be clinically significant with regard to participation in the study, including but not limited to: vital signs, ECG parameters, laboratory parameters, psychiatric status and neurological status
    8. Current enrollment in an investigational drug or device study or participation in such a study within 6 months of entry into this study with the exception of the lead-in rapastinel study (RAP-MD-30, RAP-MD-31, or RAP-MD-32)
    9. Employee, or immediate relative of an employee, of the sponsor, any of its affiliates or partners, or the study center
