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   42567   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7008   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
    1. Subject is able to comprehend and is willing to provide written informed consent and is capable and willing to comply with trial procedures or in the circumstance that the subject is incompetent, informed consent/assent is provided in accordance with local regulation and/or procedures.
    2. Subject has completed the ORARIALS-01 trial (i.e., met one of the surrogate survival endpoints of tracheostomy or PAV or has completed the 76 weeks randomised treatment period).
    3. Subject completed ORARIALS-01 while on treatment, where on treatment is defined as having taken the last dose of IMP within 2 weeks of the End of Trial visit. (whether at week 76 or prior).
    1. Il soggetto è in grado di comprendere ed è disposto a fornire il consenso informato scritto ed è in grado e disposto a rispettare le procedure dello studio oppure, nel caso in cui il soggetto fosse incapace, il consenso informato/assenso è fornito in conformità con le normative e/o procedure locali.
    2. Il soggetto ha completato lo studio ORARIALS-01 (cioè, ha soddisfatto uno degli endpoint surrogati di sopravvivenza di tracheotomia o PAV o ha completato il periodo di trattamento randomizzato di 76 settimane).
    3. Il soggetto ha completato ORARIALS-01 mentre era in trattamento dove essere in trattamento è definito come avere assunto l’ultima dose del farmaco sperimentale entro 2 settimane dalla visita di termine studio (alla settimana 76 o prima).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Known or suspected allergy or intolerance to the IMP (arimoclomol or constituents).
    2. Exposure to any other investigational treatment, advanced therapy medicinal product(ATMP) or use of any other prohibited concomitant medications.
    3. Women who are lactating or pregnant, or men or women unwilling to use a highly effective method of birth control if not surgically sterile (defined as bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy for women; vasectomy for men) for female participants until 4 weeks after last dose and for male participants until 3 months after last dose. Pre-menopausal women must have a negative pregnancy test prior to dosing with trial medication. Acceptable methods of birth control are:
    a. Hormonal methods associated with inhibition of ovulation such as oral, implantable, injectable, or transdermal contraceptives for a minimum of 1 full cycle (based on the subject's usual menstrual cycle period) before IMP administration.
    b. Total abstinence from sexual intercourse since the last menses before IMP administration. (The reliability of sexual abstinence needs to be evaluated in relation to the duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence methods [calendar, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods] are not acceptable methods of contraception).
    c. Intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine hormone-releasing system (IUS).
    4. Any of the following medically significant conditions:
    a. Clinically significant renal or hepatic disease OR clinical laboratory assessment (results = 3 times the upper limit of normal [ULN] for aspartate aminotransferase, and/or alanine aminotransferase, bilirubin = 2 times the ULN, or creatinine = 1.5 times the ULN).
    b. Any new condition or worsening of existing condition which, in the opinion of the investigator would put the subject at undue risk.
    5. Any serious adverse event or moderate/severe adverse event from the ORARIALS-01 trial which is ongoing at the time of transitioning to ORARIALS-02 and assessed as probably related to IMP.
    1. Allergia o intolleranza nota o sospetta al farmaco sperimentale (arimoclomol o i suoi componenti).
    2. Esposizione a qualsiasi altro trattamento sperimentale, prodotti medicinali per terapie avanzate (ATMP) o uso di altri farmaci concomitanti vietati (vedere la sezione 6.8)
    3. Donne in allattamento o in stato di gravidanza, o donne o uomini non disposti a utilizzare un metodo di controllo delle nascite altamente efficace se non chirurgicamente sterili (definito come legatura bilaterale delle tube, ooforectomia bilaterale o isterectomia per le donne; vasectomia per gli uomini) per le partecipanti di sesso femminile fino a 4 settimane dopo l’ultima dose e per i partecipanti di sesso maschile fino a 3 mesi dopo l'ultima dose. Le donne in premenopausa devono sottoporsi a un test di gravidanza con esito negativo prima di assumere il farmaco sperimentale. Metodi di controllo delle nascite accettabili sono:
    a. metodi ormonali associati ad inibizione dell’ovulazione come contraccettivi orali, impiantabili, iniettabili o transdermici per almeno 1 ciclo completo (in base al normale ciclo mestruale del soggetto) prima della somministrazione del farmaco sperimentale.
    b. Astinenza totale da rapporti sessuali a partire dalle ultime mestruazioni prima della somministrazione del farmaco sperimentale. (L’affidabilità dell’astinenza sessuale deve essere valutata in base alla durata dello studio e allo stile di vita abituale e preferito del soggetto. I metodi di astinenza periodica [calendario, metodi sintotermici, post-ovulazione] non sono metodi contraccettivi accettabili).
    c. IUD o IUS.
    4. Una qualsiasi delle seguenti condizioni clinicamente significative:
    a. Malattia renale o epatica clinicamente significativa, OPPURE valutazione clinica di laboratorio (risultati = 3 volte il limite superiore della norma [ULN] per aspartato aminotransferasi e/o alanina aminotransferasi, bilirubina = 2 volte l'ULN, o creatinina = 1,5 volte l'ULN).
    b. Qualsiasi nuova condizione o peggioramento delle condizioni esistenti che, secondo il parere dello sperimentatore,metterebbe il soggetto a rischio indebito.
    5. Qualsiasi evento avverso grave o evento avverso moderato/severo derivante dallo studio ORARIALS-01 in corso al momento della transizione a ORARIALS-02 e valutato come probabilmente associato al medicinale sperimentale.
