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   41235   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6758   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Adult patients of ≥18 years who received a double lung transplant at
    least 12 months prior to Screening.
    2. Patients with clinically defined BOS (CLAD – BOS phenotype) with
    screening FEV1 between 85-60% of personal best FEV1 value post
    3. Patients in whom the diagnosis of BOS has been confirmed by the

    disease (CLAD – RAS phenotype, see Protocol Specific Definitions).
    4. Patients with a diagnosis of BOS made at least 1 year after transplant
    surgery and within 12 months prior to the Screening Visit.
    5. Patients should be on a drug maintenance regimen of
    immunosuppressive agents including tacrolimus, a second agent such as
    but not limited to MMF or azathioprine, and a systemic corticosteroid
    such as prednisone as third agent. The regimen must be stable for at
    least 4 weeks prior to randomization with respect to the therapeutic
    6. Patients must consent to retrieve prespecified data from the historic
    medical record (e.g., information related to the transplant surgery;
    spirometry data; medication use).
    7. Patients must be receiving or have received post-transplant
    prophylaxis against Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Pneumocystis
    pneumonia as per SoC at the site.
    8. Patients capable of understanding the purposes and risks of the
    clinical trial, who have given written informed consent and agree to
    comply with the clinical trial requirements/visit schedules, and who are
    capable of aerosol inhalation.
    9. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine
    pregnancy test within 7 days prior to randomization and must agree to
    use one of the methods of contraception listed in Appendix II through

    RAS phenotype, see Protocol Specific Definitions),etc.
    2. Cystic Fibrosis patients with multi-drug resistant infections not
    responding to available anti-microbial therapies.
    3. Patients with acute antibody-mediated rejection at Screening. In this
    context, clinically stable patients (as judged by the Investigator) with
    detectable levels of donor specific antibodies (DSA) at the Screening
    Visit are eligible for the study.
    4. Active bacterial, viral, or fungal infection not successfully resolved at
    least 4 weeks prior to the Screening Visit. Patients with chronic
    infection or colonization who are clinically stable as per judgement of
    the Investigator are eligible for the study
    5. Mechanical ventilation within 12 weeks prior to Randomization.
    6. Patients with uncontrolled hypertension.
    7. Patient has baseline resting oxygen saturation of < 89% on room air
    or use of supplemental oxygen at rest.

    bronchomalacia/tracheomalacia, airway stents, or airways requiring
    balloon dilatations to maintain patency) with onset after the initial
    diagnosis of BOS and ongoing at Screening and/or Randomization Visit.
    9. Known hypersensitivity to L-CsA or cyclosporine A.
    10. Patients with chronic renal failure defined as serum creatinine > 2.5
    mg/dL at screening or requiring chronic dialysis.

    including post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder, with the
    exception of treated, localized basal and squamous cell carcinomas.
    13. Pregnant women or women who are unwilling to use appropriate
    birth control to avoid pregnancy through their End of Study Visit.
    14. Women who are currently breastfeeding.
    15. Receipt of an investigational drug as part of a clinical trial within 4
    weeks prior to the Screening Visit. This is defined as any treatment that
    is implemented under an Investigational New Drug (IND) or
    compassionate use.
    16. Patients who have received extracorporeal photophoresis (ECP) for
    treatment of BOS within 1 month prior to Randomization.
    17. Patients who are currently participating in an interventional clinical
    18. Psychiatric disorders or altered mental status precluding
    understanding of the informed consent process and/or completion of the
    necessary procedures.
    19. Any co-existing medical condition that in the Investigator's judgment
    will substantially increase the risk associated with the patient's
    participation in the clinical trial.
