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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Safety and tolerability of NFX88 administered for ninety days will be evaluated by assessing the number, severity, and type of Adverse Event, including changes in vital signs, safety laboratory values (haematology, clinical chemistry and urinalysis), ECGs, and MAS (Modified Ashworth Scale) (e.g. to monitor spasticity worsening) and ASIA (e.g. to monitor neurological worsening) scores.
    Non-worsening of spasticity and motor score will be obtaining as the non-increase of the scales values MAS and ASIA, respectively, from the beginning to the end of the treatment.
    La seguridad y la tolerabilidad del NFX88 administrado durante noventa días se evaluarán evaluando el número, la gravedad y el tipo de acontecimiento adverso, incluidos los cambios en los signos vitales, los valores de laboratorio de seguridad (hematología, química clínica y análisis de orina), los ECG y las puntuaciones de las escalas MAS (Escala de Ashworth modificada) (por ejemplo, para controlar el empeoramiento de la espasticidad) y ASIA (por ejemplo, para controlar el empeoramiento neurológico).
    El no empeoramiento de la espasticidad y la puntuación motora se obtendrán como el no aumento de los valores de las escalas MAS y ASIA, respectivamente, desde el principio hasta el final del tratamiento.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Safety and tolerability of NFX88 administered for 3 months will be assessed by the number, severity, and type of Adverse Events, including changes in:
    - Vital signs at Screening Visit (SV), Visit 1 (V1), Visit 2 (V2), Visit 3 (V3), End of Treatment Visit (EoT) or Withdrawal Visit (WV) and Follow-up/End of Study Visit (FU/EoS).
    - ECG at SV, V2, V3, EoT or WV and FU/EoS.
    - Clinical laboratory parameters (haematology, clinical chemistry and urinalysis) at SV, V2, V3, EoT or WV and FU/EoS.
    - Effect of NFX88 on spasticity score as determined by MAS at SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT or WV and FU/EoS.
    - Effect of NFX88 on sensory and motor function by ASIA scale at SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT or WV and FU/EoS.
    La seguridad y tolerabilidad de NFX88 administrados durante 3 meses se evaluarán por el número, gravedad y tipo de acontecimiento adverso, incluidos los cambios en:
    - Signos vitales en la visita de selección (SV), visita 1 (V1), visita 2 (V2), visita 3 (V3), visita de finalización del tratamiento (EoT) o visita de retirada del estudio (WV) y visita de seguimiento/finalización del estudio (FU/EoS).
    - ECG en SV, V2, V3, EoT o WV y FU/EoS.
    - Parámetros de laboratorio clínico (hematología, química clínica y análisis de orina) en SV, V2, V3, EoT o WV y FU/EoS.
    - Efecto de NFX88 en la puntuación de espasticidad según lo determinado por MAS en SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT o WV y FU/EoS.
    - Efecto del NFX88 en la función sensorial y motora mediante la escala ASIA en SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT o WV y FU/EoS.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Efficacy of NFX88 treatment compared to placebo in pain improvement will be measured as:
    - Reduction from Visit 1 (V1) to End of Treatment Visit (EoT) in pain intensity in the VAS (Visual analogue scale) scale.
    - Reduction from Screening Visit (SV) to EoT in the likelihood of neuropathic pain in PD-Q (Pain-DETECT Questionnaire) scale.
    - Global improvement at EoT in patient’s condition according to the PGIC (Patient Global Impression of Change) scale.
    La eficacia del tratamiento con NFX88 en comparación con el placebo en la mejora del dolor se medirá como:
    - Reducción desde la visita 1 (V1) hasta la visita al final del tratamiento (EoT) en la intensidad del dolor en la escala VAS (escala analógica visual).
    - Reducción desde la visita de selección (SV) hasta la EoT en la probabilidad de dolor neuropático en la escala PD-Q.
    - Mejora global en la EoT de la condición del paciente según la escala PGIC (Patient Global Impression of Change).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The effect of NFX88 in changes of neuropathic pain reduction scales will be obtained from:
    - VAS at Screening Visit (SV), Visit 1 (V1), Visit 2 (V2), Visit 3 (V3), End of Treatment Visit (EoT) or Withdrawal Visit (WV) and Follow-up/End of Study Visit (FU/EoS).
    - PD-Q at SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT or WV and FU/EoS.
    - PGIC at V3, EoT or WV.
    El efecto de NFX88 en los cambios de las escalas de reducción del dolor neuropático se obtendrá de:
    - VAS en la visita de selección (SV), visita 1 (V1), visita 2 (V2), visita 3 (V3), visita de fin de tratamiento (EoT) o visita de retirada (WV) y en la visita de seguimiento/de fin de estudio (FU/EoS).
    - PD-Q en SV, V1, V2, V3, EoT o WV y FU/EoS.
    - PGIC en V3, EoT o WV.
