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   41200   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety impact of continuing aducanumab dosing in
    asymptomatic Amyloid-related Imaging Abnormalities
    (ARIA) in participants with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) due to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or with mild AD dementia.
    L’obiettivo primario dello studio è quello di valutare l’impatto di sicurezza della somministrazione continua di aducanumab in caso di anomalie asintomatiche di imaging correlate all’amiloide (ARIA) in soggetti affetti da deterioramento cognitivo lieve (MCI) dovuto a malattia di Alzheimer (AD) o affetti da demenza lieve da AD.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objective of the study is to characterize ARIA, from both the imaging and the clinical perspective and to characterize the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and immunogenicity of aducanumab.
    L’obiettivo secondario dello studio è quello di caratterizzare le ARIA dal punto di vista sia dell’imaging sia clinico e di caratterizzare la sicurezza, la tollerabilità, la farmacocinetica (PK) e l’immunogenicità di aducanumab.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Key Inclusion Criteria:
    • Ability of the participant or his/her legally authorized representative to understand the purpose and risks of the study and provide signed and dated informed consent and authorization to use confidential
    health information in accordance with national and local
    participant privacy regulations.
    • Must have at least 6 years of education or work
    experience to exclude mental deficits other than MCI
    due to AD or mild AD dementia.
    • Must have evidence of cerebral Aß accumulation, based on a positive PET scan of the brain. Previously obtained positron emission tomography (PET) scan
    (within 12 months of screening) is permissible. Previous PET scan images must be submitted to the central imaging vendor to confirm that study inclusion criteria
    are met.
    • Must consent to apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotyping.
    • Must meet all of the following clinical criteria for MCI due to AD or mild AD dementia according to NIAAA criteria [Albert 2011; McKhann 2011], and must have
    the following: MCI due to AD (a CDR global score of 0.5, and an MMSE score between 24 and 30
    (inclusive)), and Mild AD dementia (a CDR global score of 0.5 or 1, and as MMSE score between 20 and 26 (inclusive)).

    Principali criteri di inclusione:
    • Capacità del partecipante o del suo rappresentante legalmente autorizzato di comprendere lo scopo e i rischi dello studio, di fornire un consenso informato firmato e datato, e di concedere l’autorizzazione a utilizzare le informazioni sanitarie riservate secondo le normative sia nazionali sia locali che tutelano la privacy del partecipante.
    • Il partecipante deve avere almeno 6 anni di esperienza educativa/formativa o lavorativa, al fine di escludere deficit mentali diversi dal MCI dovuto ad o a demenza lieve da AD.
    • Il partecipante deve presentare evidenza di accumulo di Aß cerebrale sulla base di una scansione PET positiva del cervello. È consentito utilizzare una scansione mediante tomografia a emissione di positroni (PET) eseguita in precedenza (entro 12 mesi dallo screening). Le scansioni PET eseguite in precedenza devono essere inviate al lettore centrale per confermare che i criteri di inclusione nello studio siano soddisfatti.
    • Il partecipante deve acconsentire alla genotipizzazione dell’apolipoproteina E (ApoE).
    • Il partecipante deve soddisfare tutti i seguenti criteri clinici per l’MCI dovuto a malattia di Alzheimer (AD) o demenza lieve da AD, secondo i criteri del NIAAA [Albert 2011; McKhann 2011] e deve presentare: MCI dovuto ad (punteggio CDR globale pari a 0,5, punteggio MMSE compreso fra 24 e 30 inclusi); demenza lieve da AD (punteggio CDR globale pari a 0,5 o 1, punteggio MMSE compreso fra 20 e 26 inclusi).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Key Exclusion Criteria:
    • Any uncontrolled medical or
    neurological/neurodegenerative condition (other than AD) that, in the opinion of the Investigator, might be a contributing cause of the participant’s cognitive
    impairment (e.g., substance abuse, vitamin B12 deficiency, abnormal thyroid function, stroke or other cerebrovascular condition, Lewy body dementia,
    frontotemporal dementia, head trauma).
    • Clinically significant unstable psychiatric illness
    (e.g., uncontrolled major depression, uncontrolled
    schizophrenia, uncontrolled bipolar affective disorder)
    within 6 months prior to Screening.
    • Transient ischemic attack or stroke or any
    unexplained loss of consciousness within 1 year prior to Screening.
    • Vaccinations within 10 days prior to randomization (Day 1).
    • Female participants who are pregnant or currently breastfeeding.
    Principali criteri di esclusione:
    • Qualsiasi disturbo medico o neurologico/neurodegenerativo non controllato (diverso dall’AD) che, secondo l’opinione dello sperimentatore, potrebbe essere una causa che contribuisce al deterioramento cognitivo del partecipante (per esempio abuso di sostanze, carenza di vitamina B12, funzionalità tiroidea anormale, ictus o altro disturbo cerebrovascolare, demenza a corpi di Lewy, demenza frontotemporale, trauma cranico).
    • Malattia psichiatrica clinicamente significativa e instabile (per esempio depressione maggiore non controllata, schizofrenia non controllata, disturbo affettivo bipolare non controllato) nei 6 mesi precedenti lo screening.
    • Attacco ischemico transitorio, ictus o qualsiasi perdita di coscienza inspiegata nell’anno precedente lo screening.
    • Vaccinazioni nei 10 giorni precedenti la randomizzazione (giorno 1).
    • Partecipanti di sesso femminile in gravidanza o in allattamento.
