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   35896   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5892   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the prognostic value (sensitivity and specificity) of air-trapping measures (Expiratory/Inspiratory Mean Lung Density) detected via quantitative thoracic computed tomography at baseline for improvement in exacerbation rate (0 to 1 non-severe exacerbation during follow-up versus all others) at 52 weeks among eosinophilic patients with chronic airway disorders treated with Benralizumab.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To describe clinical improvement category sub-groups (non-responders versus strong responders)
    • To perform exploratory, prognostic-value studies (including prognostic variables derived changes occurring over 24 weeks and from clustering or factor mining at baseline and 24 weeks). These exploratory studies will include estimating the sensitivity/specificity of baseline/early imaging variables for predicting clinical response variables.
    • To describe the prognostic categories (predicted non-responder versus predicted responder)
    • To create a centralized image library associated with the study.
    • To explore the association between bronchial homothety curves and disease severity/progression.
    • To verify the reproducibility of the relationships found between mean lung density, the fractal dimension of -850 HU segmentations, and clinical variables found during the SCANN’AIR study (NCT03102749).
    • To monitor patient safety throughout the study.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    •Female and male patients aged 18 to 75 years (inclusively) with a history of physician-diagnosed severe asthma (according to GINA criteria) requiring treatment with inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) plus asthma controller for at least 12 months prior to inclusion
    Other acceptable asthma controllers include a long acting bronchodilator (LABA or long-acting muscarinic antagonists [LAMA]), a leukotriene inhibitor, theophylline preparations or maintenance oral corticosteroid (OCS) (daily or every other day OCS requirement in order to maintain asthma control; maximum total daily dose 20 mg prednisone or equivalent).

    •History of at least 2 asthma exacerbations while on ICS plus another asthma controller that required treatment with systemic corticosteroids (any administration route) in the 12 months prior to inclusion. For patients receiving corticosteroids as a maintenance therapy, the corticosteroid treatment for the exacerbation is defined as a temporary increase in their maintenance dose.
    •Uncontrolled disease (Asthma Control Questionnaire >1.5)
    •Pre bronchodilator forced expiratory volume at 1 second (% predicted) between 40% and 85%, established according to the NHANESIII criteria

    •Subjects with a history of anaphylaxis to any biologic therapy
    •Subjects taking immunosuppressive medications (except oral prednisone and inhaled and topical corticosteroids)
    •Subjects with intercurrent illnesses (eg, viral illnesses) that may compromise the safety of the subject
    •Subjects who are febrile (≥38°C)
    •Currently smoking or smoking history ≥ 20 pack years
    •Subjects who have had basal cell carcinoma, localized squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or in situ carcinoma of the cervix are eligible provided that the subject is in remission and curative therapy was completed at least 12 months prior to the date of informed consent, and assent when applicable was obtained
