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   43233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7153   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To compare the efficacy of a personalized treatment of nephrotic iMN driven by anti-PLA2R1 antibody epitope profile at month 0 and month 6 with the GEMRITUX therapeutic protocol to induce clinical remission of the nephrotic syndrome at month-12.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Clinical remission at month-12 (KDIGO definition):
    - complete: UPCR <0.3 g/g in spot morning urine samples and serum albumin > 35 g/L and eGFR > 60 ml/min/1.73 m2
    - partial: UPCR < 3.5 g/g with a decrease greater than 50% from baseline and serum albumin > 30 g/L and increase of serum creatinine lower than 20%
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    After 12 months of treatment
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Complete clinical remission as defined above
    2. Partial clinical remission as defined above
    3. Immunological remission: full PLA2R1 depletion measured by ELISA (titer<14RU/ml)
    4. Proteinuria and albuminuria are measured on urine sample (proteinuria-to-creatinine ratio or albuminuria-to-creatinine ratio g/g) or collected during one day (g per day)
    5. Change in proteinuria are measured in percentage change in proteinuria from baseline to M6, M12, M18, M24
    6. Serum creatinine is measured in blood sample in μmol/l and eGFR using the CKD-EPI formula.
    7. Change in serum creatinine and eGFR are measured in percentage change from baseline to M6, M12, M18, M24
    8. PLA2R1-Ab titer are measured by ELISA in RU/ml
    9. Severe infections are defined as infections that led to hospitalization during study follow-up
    10. Remission will be defined as already stated. Patients from both groups will be analysed jointly. The following risk factors will be studied in this analysis:
    -Lymphocyte counts: B cells (CD19, transitional, mature and memory) and T cells (CD3, CD4, CD8 and TReg) measured in blood sample at J0, M3, M6, post-rituximab infusion
    - Serum level of IL-35 (pg/ml) measured in blood sample at J0, M3, M6, post-rituximab infusion using ELISA
    - Residual serum rituximab levels (μg/ml) measured in blood sample at M3 post-rituximab infusion using ELISA
    - Neutralizing anti-rituximab antibodies (ng/ml) measured in blood sample at M3 and M6 post-rituximab infusion
    11. Responders are patients entered in partial or complete remission at M12. Relapse is defined by an increasinged proteinuria > 3.5 g/g after remission at M12. Patients from both groups will be analysed jointly. The risk factors studied will be the same as above measured at J0, M3, M6 and M12 post-rituximab infusion.
