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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Sub-study
    A subset of patients at selected sites may be asked to participate in an
    optional imaging sub-study that will assess cardiac and muscle
    parameters by MRI. The details will be provided via a separate protocol
    and patients participating in that study will be consented specifically for
    the imaging study.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Patient and/or parent or legal guardian must have the ability and be willing to provide written informed consent prior to any study-related procedures.
    2. Diagnosis of DMD based on clinical phenotype with increased serum creatine kinase.
    3. Documented mutation in the Dystrophin gene associated with DMD that is amenable to exon 51 skipping.
    4. Ambulatory male, able to walk independently for at least 10 meters in 10 seconds or less at the time of Screening visit (performed as part of the NSAA)
    5. Age of ≥5 and ≤12 years at time of randomization
    6. Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, drug administration plan, laboratory tests, study restrictions, and all study procedures, including undergoing the biopsy procedures.
    7. Stable pulmonary and cardiac function, as measured by:
    a. Reproducible percent predicted forced vital capacity (FVC) ≥50%
    b. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >55% in patients <10 years of age and >45% in patients ≥10 years of age, as measured (and documented) by echocardiogram.
    8. Currently on a stable corticosteroid therapy regimen, defined as: initiation of systemic corticosteroid therapy occurred ≥6 months prior to Screening, and no changes in dose ≤3 months prior to Screening visit.
    9. Adequate deltoid muscle at Screening to perform open muscle biopsies
    10. Sexually mature males must be willing to use contraception for the duration of the study, if the patient is sexually active.
    11. Patient and caregivers must agree not to post any study-related information on social media.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Clinically significant medical finding on the physical examination other than DMD that, in the judgment of the Investigator, will make the patient unsuitable for participation in, and/or completion of the study procedures.
    2. Other prior or ongoing medical conditions including:
    a. Acute illness within 4 weeks of the initial Screening visit;
    b. Abnormal physical findings, other than those associated with musculoskeletal findings attributable to DMD
    3. Laboratory abnormality, that, in the Investigator's opinion, could adversely affect the safety of the patient, make it unlikely that the course of treatment or follow-up would be completed, or impair the assessment of study results. These include, but are not limited to:
    a. Renal insufficiency;
    b. Impaired hepatic function glutamate dehydrogenase (GLDH) ≥ 2.5x upper limit of normal (ULN) and bilirubin ≥ 2x ULN (or International Normalized Ratio [INR] ≥ 1.5x ULN);
    c. Activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) values above ULN;
    d. Platelet count < lower limit of normal (LLN).
    4. Documented positive hepatitis B surface antigen or hepatitis C antibody test.
    5. Known to be positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
    6. Severe mental retardation and/or behavioral problems that, in the opinion of the Investigator, could prohibit participation in this study.
    7. Cardiac insufficiency:
    a. Severe cardiomyopathy that, in the opinion of the Investigator, prohibits participation in this study; however, cardiomyopathy that is managed by ACE inhibitors or beta blockers is acceptable provided the patient meets the LVEF inclusion criterion
    b. Any other evidence of clinically significant structural or functional heart abnormality
    c. A cardiac troponin I value > 0.2 ng/mL on initial and repeat testing if initial test is elevated at screening.
    8. Need for daytime mechanical or non-invasive ventilation OR anticipated need for daytime mechanical or non-invasive ventilation within the next year, in the opinion of the Investigator. Nighttime non-invasive ventilation is permitted.
    9. Changes in nutritional or herbal supplements or concomitant medications within 1 month prior to Screening visit or plans to modify (dose or regimen) during the study.
    10. Currently on anticoagulants or drugs that are known to significantly increase the risk of bleeding, such as NSAIDs and heparin.

    12. Received prior treatment with WVE-210201.
    13. Received prior treatment with gene therapy for DMD
    14. Received treatment with ataluren or eteplirsen within the 14 weeks prior to the planned Baseline biopsy collection.
    15. Received any investigational drug within 3 months or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer prior to the planned baseline biopsy collection.
    16. Known hypersensitivity to any oligonucleotide, as demonstrated by a systemic allergic reaction such as changes in pulse, blood pressure, breathing function, etc.
    17. Parent or legal guardian is directly or indirectly involved in the conduct and administration of this study as an Investigator, sub-investigator, study coordinator, or other study staff member, or the patient is a first-degree family member, significant other, or relative residing with one of the above persons involved directly or indirectly in the study.
