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   38185   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6272   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
    To evaluate the potential for combination therapy with ABI-H0731 + SOC NUC to increase SVR rates in subjects who have CHB. SVR rates will be measured by percentage of subjects with the combination of: HBeAg loss (when applicable), loss or reduction to a stable plateau of HBsAg, and sustained loss of serum viral DNA
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate the longer-term safety and tolerability of ABI-H0731 added to SOC NUC therapy • To evaluate improvement in transaminases in subjects on treatment and post treatment • For subjects who do not achieve complete response on treatment, to evaluate the durability of changes in viral antigen and viral DNA after discontinuation of combination therapy
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Willing and able to provide informed consent. 2. Previously enrolled on a study of ABI-H0731 and completed the treatment period, with demonstrated compliance in the opinion of the investigator. 3. Female subjects must agree to use an effective birth control method for the duration of the study and follow-up, or be surgically sterile for at least 6 months, or at least 2 years postmenopausal with serum follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels consistent with a postmenopausal status. Effective birth control methods include male or female condom (may not be used together due to increased risk of breakage), vasectomy, intrauterine device (IUD), diaphragm, or cervical cap. Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test. 4. All heterosexually active male subjects must agree to use an effective birth control method for the duration of the study and follow-up. Effective birth control methods include male or female condom (may not be used together due to increased risk of breakage), vasectomy, hormone-based contraception (only female partner of a male subject), IUD, diaphragm, or cervical cap. 5. Agreement to adhere to Lifestyle Considerations (including abstaining from alcohol abuse [defined as alcohol consumption exceeding 2 standard drinks per day on average (1 standard drink = 10 grams of alcohol)] and the use of illicit substances, herbal or other substances, or unnecessary over-the-counter medications; see Protocol Section 5.4) throughout study duration. 6. In good general health except for chronic HBV infection.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Must not have had evidence of RAVs or lack of compliance on a previous study of ABI-H0731. 2. Must not have had a treatment-emergent adverse event or laboratory abnormalities deemed clinically significant and possibly or probably related to drug while on a previous study of ABI-H0731, that in the opinion of the Investigator or the Sponsor makes the subject unsuitable for this study. 3.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    SVR at 24 weeks off treatment defined as: sustained HBeAg loss (in HBeAg positive subjects), sustained viral suppression, and loss or stable reduction of HBsAg to ≤ 100 IU/mL
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Endpoints will be will be analyzed descriptively. For continuous variables, such as change from Baseline in mean log10 serum HBeAg or HBsAg values at each timepoint, descriptive statistics will be used and will include the number, mean, standard deviation, median, minimum, and maximum and, where appropriate, a 95% CI.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Adverse events, premature discontinuations, abnormal safety laboratory results, electrocardiogram (ECG), or vital signs • Subjects with abnormal ALT at Baseline who have normal ALT at end of treatment (EOT) and end of study (EOS) • Subjects with suppression/loss of viral antigen/DNA on combination treatment whose viral antigens rebound off therapy
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Endpoints will be will be analyzed descriptively. For continuous variables, such as change from Baseline in mean log10 serum HBeAg or HBsAg values at each timepoint, descriptive statistics will be used and will include the number, mean, standard deviation, median, minimum, and maximum and, where appropriate, a 95% CI.
