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   39233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6427   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.

    Immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges in the filters of the kidneys, causing progressive kidney damage.
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Immune System Diseases [C20]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.2 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.2Version 20.0
    E.1.2Level PT
    E.1.2Classification code 10021263
    E.1.2Term IgA nephropathy
    E.1.2System Organ Class 10038359 - Renal and urinary disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The efficacy objective of the study is to determine the effect of sparsentan on proteinuria and renal function, in patients newly diagnosed with Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN) who are treatment-naive.

    The exploratory objective of the study is to determine whether sparsentan has a beneficial effect in patients with IgAN on changes in the kidney tissue by biopsy, quality of life, kidney scarring, cardiac function, blood pressure and other factors measured in the blood.

    The safety objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of sparsentan by monitoring of safety endpoints.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Not applicable
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Patient is willing and able to provide signed informed consent
    • Patient can understand written and spoken English.
    • Male and female patients with IgAN aged ≥18 years
    • Biopsy-proven IgAN, diagnosed within the past 3 months
    • Urine total protein ≥0.5 g/day and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) value ≥30 mL/min/1.73 m2
    • Not previously treated with ACEI and/or ARB therapy OR not treated with ACEI and/or ARB therapy within the past 12 months
    • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP), beginning at menarche, must agree to the use of one highly reliable (ie, can achieve a failure rate of <1% per year) method of contraception from 7 days prior to the first dose of study medication until 90 days after the last dose of study medication. Highly reliable contraception methods include stable oral, implanted, transdermal, or injected contraceptive hormones associated with inhibition of ovulation, or an intrauterine device (IUD) in place for at least 3 months. One additional barrier method must also be used during sexual activity, such as a diaphragm or diaphragm with spermicide (preferred), or male partner’s use of male condom or male condom with spermicide), from Day 1 until 90 days after the last dose of study medication. WOCBP are defined as those who are fertile, following menarche and until becoming postmenopausal unless permanently sterile; permanent sterilisation methods include hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, and bilateral oophorectomy. A postmenopausal state is defined as amenorrhoea for more than 24 consecutive months without an alternative medical cause; women on hormone replacement therapy must have a documented plasma follicle-stimulating hormone level ≥40 mIU/mL. All WOCBP must have a negative pregnancy test at Visit 1 (serum) and Visit 2 (urine, with positive results confirmed by serum).

    • History of diabetes mellitus or nonfasting blood glucose >10 mmol/L (180 mg/dL)
    • Organ transplantation (with the exception of corneal transplants)
    • Concomitant or recent immunosuppression
    • History of heart failure (NYHA Class II-IV), clinically significant cerebrovascular disease, or coronary artery disease
    • Jaundice, hepatitis, or known hepatobiliary disease
    • Malignancy within the past 2 years
    • Haematocrit <27%, haemoglobin <90 g/L (9 g/dL), or potassium >5.5 mmol/L (5.5 mEq/L)
    • History of alcohol or illicit drug use disorder (as defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition)
    • History of serious side effects or allergic response to any angiotensin II antagonist or endothelin receptor antagonist (ERA)
    • The female patient is pregnant, plans to become pregnant during the course of the study, or is breastfeeding.
    • The patient has participated in a study of any investigational product within 28 days prior to screening, or plans to participate in such a study during the course of this study.
    • The patient, in the opinion of the Investigator, is unable to adhere to the requirements of the study, including the ability to swallow the IMP whole.
    • The patient, in the opinion of the Investigator, has a medical condition or abnormal clinically significant laboratory screening value not listed above that may interfere with the evaluation of sparsentan safety or activity.
