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   41198   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    3. Patient with a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) according to the 2010 American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/ European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) classification criteria for at least 24 weeks prior to the first administration of the study drug (Day 1).
    4. Patient who has active disease as defined by the presence of 6 or more swollen joints (of 66 assessed), 6 or more tender joints (of 68 assessed) and either an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) >28 mm/hour or a serum C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration >1.0 mg/dL (>10 mg/L) at Screening.
    5. Patient who has been receiving oral or intramuscular (IM) methotrexate (MTX) at a dose of between 12.5 to 25 mg/week, or 10 mg/week if intolerant to a higher dose, for at least 12 weeks and who has been on a stable dose and route of MTX for at least 4 weeks prior to the first administration of the study drug (Day 1).
    6. Patient has adequate renal and hepatic function at Screening as defined by the following clinical chemistry results:
    • Serum creatinine ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or an estimated creatinine clearance level >50 mL/min (by Cockcroft-Gault formula) (Système International d'Unités [SI] units: 0.84 mL/second).
    •Serum alanine aminotransferase ≤ 3.0 x ULN.
    •Serum aspartate aminotransferase ≤ 3.0 x ULN.
    • Serum total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN.
    7. Patient has the following hematology laboratory test results at Screening:
    • Hemoglobin >8.0 g/dL (SI units: >80 g/L or 4.96 mmol/L).
    • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1.5 x 10³ cells/μL.
    • Platelet count ≥ 75x 10³ cells/μL.
    8. Patient (or legal guardian, if applicable) is informed of the full nature and purpose of the study, including possible risks and side-effects, has the ability to cooperate with the Investigator and is given ample time and opportunity to read and understand verbal and/or written instructions, and signs the written informed consent form (ICF) with date prior to participation in the study.

Male and female patients and their partners who have been surgically sterilized for less than 24 weeks prior to the date of informed consent must agree to use any medically acceptable methods of contraception. Menopausal females must have experienced their last period more than 1 year prior to the date of informed consent to be classified as not of childbearing potential.
