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   43387   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7179   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Partial remission will be analysed in week sixteen (t=16). Partial remission is defined as presence of transient new lesions that heal within one week. At week six (t= 6), patients that showed no disease control on apremilast combined with doxycycline will be excluded from the pilot study. Disease control is defined as ‘the time that new lesions cease to form and established lesions begin to heal OR pruritic symptoms start to abate (minimal 3-point decrease of VAS)”.
    Gedeeltelijke remissie zal in week zestien (t = 16) worden geanalyseerd. Gedeeltelijke remissie wordt gedefinieerd als de aanwezigheid van voorbijgaande nieuwe laesies die binnen een week genezen. In week zes (t = 6) worden patiënten die geen disease vertonen op apremilast in combinatie met doxycycline ge-excludeerd van de pilotstudie. Disease control wordt gedefinieerd als 'de tijd dat nieuwe laesies ophouden te bestaan en vastgestelde laesies beginnen te genezen OF jeuk begint te verminderen (minimale daling van VAS met 3 punten)'.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Week 16
    Week 16
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Achievement of complete remission at week sixteen. Complete remission is defined as absence of new or established lesions or pruritus.30
    • Proportion of patient with drug survival at t=16.
    • Proportion of patients with disease control at t=6.
    • Mean decrease in periphery blood eosinophil count.
    • Mean decrease in BP180 Nc16a titers by ELISA.
    • Change in cytokine levels in blood and skin measured at baseline and week sixteen (t=0 and t=16).
    • Change in genexpression by RNA sequencing measured at t=0 and t=16.

    The following outcomes will be used for measuring clinical efficacy:
    • mean reduction in Visual Analogue Scale (VAS)
    • mean decrease in Dermatology Quality of Life index (DLQI) and autoimmune blistering disease quality of life (AIBDQOL);
    • mean reduction of Bullous Pemphigoid Disease Area Index (BPDAI).
    • Bereiken van volledige remissie in week 16. Volledige remissie wordt gedefinieerd als de afwezigheid van nieuwe of vastgestelde laesies of pruritus.
    • Percentage van patiënt met disease control op t =16.
    • Percentage patiënten met disease control op t=6.
    • Gemiddelde afname van het aantal eosinofielen in het perifere bloed.
    • Gemiddelde afname van BP180 Nc16a-titers door ELISA.
    • Verandering in cytokineniveaus in bloed en huid gemeten bij baseline en week zestien (t = 0 en t = 16).
    • Verandering in genexpressie door RNA-sequencing gemeten op t = 0 en t = 16.

    De volgende uitkomsten zullen worden gebruikt voor het meten van de klinische werkzaamheid:
    • gemiddelde reductie in Visual Analogue Scale (VAS)
    • gemiddelde afname in Dermatology Quality of Life index (DLQI) en autoimmune blistering disease quality of life (AIBDQOL);
    • gemiddelde afname van de Bullous Pemphigoid Disease Area Index (BPDAI).
