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   42870   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    In order to be eligible to participate in this study, a subject must meet all of the following criteria:
    • Patients older than 18 years with written informed consent.
    • Diagnosis of HHT: either confirmed by genetic testing or the Curaçao criteria (definite diagnosis) (7).
    • Presence of endoscopic proven GI AVM manifestations / telangiectasias confirmed within the last 12 months (upper and/or lower endoscopy and/or capsule endoscopy).
    • Endoscopic refractory: at least 1 endoscopic APC, laser, or other endoscopic treatment modality performed in the past 5 years.
    • Diagnosis of iron deficiency anemia (IDA). IDA is defined as:
    o At least one serum ferritin below < 30 ug/l within the last 6 months requiring iron infusion above or equal to 1 g and/or
    o Hemoglobin below 5.6 mmol/l (9.0 g/dl) or are in need of transfusions due to anemia related symptoms within the last 6 months and
    o The absence of other common causes of anemia (Vitamin B12 and/or folate deficiency in patients with macrocytic anemia and bone marrow disorders in patients with pancytopenia)
    • Substantial transfusion dependency: at least 4 blood units and / or intravenous iron in the 6 months prior to study inclusion.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    A potential subject who meets any of the following criteria will be excluded from participation in this study:
    • Liver cirrhosis Child-Pugh C,
    • Insulinoma,
    • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus as defined by HbA1c >64 mmol/ml, despite adequate therapy,
    • Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome
    • Symptomatic cholecystolithiasis (possible side-effect octreotide)
    Chronic or acute pancreatitis
    • Bradycardia (heart rate below 50)*
    • Hypersensitivity to the active ingredient (octreotide) or to auxiliary materials of the study medication
    • Severe disease/comorbidities with a life expectancy < 1 year
    • Use of chemotherapy and / or ciclosporin
    • Pregnancy or nursing women or women who have a pregnancy wish during the study period.
    • Women of childbearing potential who do not have a confirmed menstrual period and a negative, highly sensitive urine or serum pregnancy test < 7 days before inclusion
    • Women of childbearing potential who do not use a highly effective contraceptive measure (according to section 4.1 of the Recommendations related to contraception and pregnancy testing in clinical trials of the Heads of Medicines Agencies (HMA)) or refuse to maintain this measure during the entire treatment-and relevant systemic exposure period.(25)
    • Women of childbearing potential who refuse to undergo additional pregnancy testing during the treatment period
    • Use of other anti-angiogenic drug treatment (thalidomide and/or bevacizumab
    • Use of hormonal (estrogen) therapy and/or antifibrinolytic therapy (tranexamic acid) to treat anemia due to telangiectasia with sufficient effect. However, when patients are red blood cell transfusion or iron infusion dependent despite these treatment options and are naïve to octreotide treatment, patients are still eligible for inclusion.
    *If a patient has a heart rate below 60 and uses cardiovascular medication that affect the heart rate (e.g. beta blockers and calcium channel blockers) the prescribing specialist (or another competent specialist) will be consulted about the possibility to adjust the dose of these medicines. Patients with a heartrate below 50 (despite dose adjustments) will be excluded from participation.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The difference in the number of patients in the treatment arm and the number of patients in the observational arm with a ‘successful response’. A successful response is defined as a decrease of ≥50% in the number of red blood cell transfusions and/or number of IV iron infusions (per 500mg) given between baseline period (26 weeks prior to study inclusion) and during the treatment study period (26 weeks). Patients who do not have a successful response (patients with a decrease of <50%) will be counted as treatment failures.
    NB Patients who exclusively or primarily used IV iron infusions at baseline and required (more) red blood cell transfusions during the treatment study period will be counted as treatment failures regardless of their percentual decrease in IV iron infusions. Patients who exclusively or primarily used red blood cell transfusions at baseline and required (more) iron infusions during the treatment study period will be counted as treatment failures if their total number of red blood cell transfusions and iron infusions during the treatment study period exceeds half of the total number of red blood cell transfusions (and iron infusions) during baseline.
    NB The exact preparation and dosage of IV iron infusions should be noted for each infusion. The preparation of IV iron should be kept consistent at baseline and during study period.

    (26 weeks)
    26 Wochen vor Studieneintritt und 26 Wochen währen der
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The absolute mean and median difference and the percentage mean and median difference between baseline (26 weeks prior to study inclusion) and the treatment study period (26 weeks) of patients in the treatment arm compared to patients in the observational arm in:
    - Number of red blood cell transfusions
    - Number of Intravenous iron infusions (per 500mg)
    - Number of endoscopic treatments
    The absolute mean and median difference and the percentage mean and median difference at baseline (< 7 days before inclusion) and after 4 weeks, 12 weeks, and 26 weeks of the study period between patients in the treatment arm and patients in the observational arm in the value of:
    - Hemoglobin and ferritin levels
    The absolute mean and median difference and the percentage mean and median difference between baseline (26 weeks prior to study inclusion) and the treatment study period (26 weeks) of patients in the treatment arm compared to patients in the observational arm in:
    - Patient reported outcome measures (PROMS): which include quality of life (measured by the SF-36), level of fatigue (measured by the multidimensional fatigue inventory (MFI)-20) and epistaxis severity (measured by the ESS tool).
    The absolute mean and median difference and the percentage mean and median difference in the number of (S)AE’s during the treatment study period (26 weeks) between patients in the treatment arm and patients in the observational arm.
    The absolute mean and median difference and the percentual mean and median difference between baseline (26 weeks prior to study inclusion) and the treatment study period (26 weeks) of patients in the treatment arm compared to patients in the observational arm in cost effectiveness. Cost effectiveness will be defined by measuring the healthcare costs. The following volumes of healthcare will be registering in Case Record Forms (CRF): (co) medication, visits and consultations to specialists or other health care professionals, lab and imagine techniques, operations, general practitioners and hospitalizations. The volumes of healthcare will be multiplied with the respective (Dutch) cost prices to get the healthcare costs (see economic evaluation).
