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   41201   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6744   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.

    days (1)).
    8. Cohort 1 comprises newly or relapsed subjects: Serum anti-PLA2R antibodies ≥
    50.0 RU/mL determined by Euroimmun ELISA at central laboratory.

    a. subject did not achieve immunological remission after prior IST(s) as
    documented by the investigator AND
    b. subject is without promising standard therapeutic options as
    documented by the investigator(i.e. investigator expects efficacy or
    safety issues with remaining IST options AND
    c. serum anti-PLA2R antibodies ≥20RU/mL measured at screening by the
    Euroimmun ELISA at central laboratory
    10. Female of non-childbearing potential fulfilling one of the criteria:
    a. post-menopausal: after 12 months of natural (spontaneous)
    amenorrhea with an appropriate clinical profile (e.g. age appropriate,
    history of vasomotor symptoms)
    b. surgically sterile: tubal ligation at least 6 weeks before taking trial
    treatment, hysterectomy, or bilateral oophorectomy
    c. genetically sterile: e. g. Turner syndrome, uterine agenesis.
    11. Sexually active females of reproductive potential should use one of
    the following contraception options until 3 months after the last dose of
    a. One method of contraception that has a typical use failure rate of
    <1% (i.e., less than 1 pregnancy expected per 100 women), which
    would include
    sterilization surgery for women, sterilization implant for women,
    sterilization surgery for men, Copper IUD, IUD with progestin, or
    implantable rod
    b. A hormonal method of contraception (i.e., shot/injection, oral
    contraceptive, contraceptive patch, vaginal contraceptive ring, having
    typical use failure rate ≤ 9%) plus a barrier method (i.e., diaphragm
    with spermicide, sponge with spermicide, cervical cap with spermicide,
    male condom, female condom, spermicide alone).
    Note: France will only enroll patients in Cohort 2.

    8. Concomitant renal disease other than MN (e.g., diabetic renal disease,
    lupus nephritis, IgA nephropathy)
    9. Diabetes mellitus type 1
    10. Diabetes mellitus type 2: Subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus may
