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   43716   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7255   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome will consist in the PGA score (Physician Global Assessment) assessed by the investigator physician (blinded from the treatment). PGA score ranges from 0 (clear) to 5 (severe lesions), and is commonly used in several dermatologic conditions. For each patient, PGA of the area treated with the intervention (0.1% topical sirolimus) will be compared to PGA of the area treated with topical vehicle (inactive comparator).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At week 12
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - Efficacy by PGA score
    - Efficacy by two independent experts on the basis of standardized photographs (instructions will be given for standardizing photographs) on each area of the CMLM. The experts will have to identify, at the end of the study, which area among both received the active treatment. In case of disagreement, a consensus will be reached between both experts; if consensus is not reached, a third expert will be sought for final decision
    - Efficacy by the investigator blinded to treatment regarding severity of oozing, bleeding, erythema, and thickness on both areas (treated with topical sirolimus and topical vehicle), with a visual analog scale (VAS) from 0 to 10
    - Self-assessment by the subject (and parents in case of children under 16) of the global improvement of CMLM in both areas using a VAS from 0 to 10
    - Self-assessment of functional and esthetic impairments (by the patient and parents if patient < 16, using a 0 to 10 VAS)
    - Self-assessment of pain by the patient on a 0 to 10 VAS linked to the CMLM (a VAS adapted to children will be used for subjects under 16 years)
    - Self-assessment of quality of life using the validated DLQI scale (Dermatology Life Quality Index), or Child-DLQI for children
    - Evaluation of systemic passage of sirolimus
    - Tolerance of topical sirolimus: record of local side effects in both areas treated with topical sirolimus and vehicle ; record of general side effects
    - Biological safety (we will perform biological measurements that are required for assessing safety of oral sirolimus: blood cell count, liver and renal functions, ionogram, lipids [cholesterol and triglycerides] and glycemia)
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    - PGA at baseline, W6, W20 and M12
    - Photographs at baseline and W12
    - VAS for severity of oozing, bleeding, erythema, and thickness on both areas at baseline, W12, W20 and M12
    - Self-assessment by the subject at W12, W20 and M12
    - VAS for functional and esthetic impairments at baseline, W20 and M12
    - VAS for pain at baseline, W20 and M12
    - DLQI or Child-DLQI scale at baseline, W20 and M12
    - Dosage of serum level of sirolimus at W6, W12 and W20
    - Biological safety at baseline, W12 and W20
    W12 is the end of the double-blinded period
    W20 is the end of the open application of 0.1% topical sirolimus on the whole CMLM
