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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    This is a research study looking at the effects of switching from one biosimilar drug (CT-P13), used to treat either Ulcerative Colitis (UC) or Crohn’s disease (CD) to another biosimilar drug (SB2), also used to treat UC or Crohn’s disease. CTP-13 (Inflectra, Remsima) and SB2 (Flixabi) are ‘biosimilars’ of Remicade, but work in the same way.
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical outcome of switching a cohort of IBD patients from CT-P13 to SB2.
    Infliximab is a product originally produced and marketed by a single pharmaceutical company and given a brand name (Remicade). After a number of years, it is agreed that other companies can produce their own copies of Remicade. These copies are known as biosimilars and act in a similar way to the original product Remicade
    There are very tiny differences to the original product but we do not believe these affect how the drug works or it's safety and side effects.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    In addition the research will gather information to show the following:
    How UC or CD is managed after switching.
    How safe it is to switch from one Biosimilar drug to another
    How the immune system responds to this change
    Assess the quality of life after switching from CT-P13 (Inflectra, Remsima) to SB2 (Flixabi).
    Assess the patient life experiences after switching from CT-P13 (Inflectra, Remsima) to SB2 (Flixabi).
