Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43388   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7179   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    - Participant has absolute neutrophil count <1500 cells/mm3
    - Participant has any laboratory abnormality that, in the opinion of the Investigator, is clinically significant, has not resolved at randomization, and could jeopardize or compromise the study participant’s ability to participate in this study
    - Participant has 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) with findings considered to be clinically significant upon medical review. The clinical significance of the findings needs to be assessed by the Investigator to determine eligibility, and any queries regarding continuation of the study participant must be addressed with the Medical Monitor
    - Study participant has renal impairment, defined as serum creatinine level of ≥1.4 mg/dL for females and ≥1.5mg/dL for males
    - Study participant has >2x upper limit of normal (ULN) of any of the following at Visit 1: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), or bilirubin >1.5xULN (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%). If study participant has elevations only in total bilirubin that are >ULN and <1.5xULN, fractionate bilirubin to identify possible undiagnosed Gilbert’s syndrome (ie, direct
    bilirubin <35%). For randomized study participants with a baseline result >ULN for ALT, AST, ALP, or total bilirubin but <1.5xULN, a baseline diagnosis and/or the cause of any clinically meaningful elevation must be understood and recorded in the electronic Case Report form (eCRF). Tests that result in ALT, AST, or ALP up to 25% above the exclusion limit (>2xULN) may be repeated once for confirmation
    - Study participant has positive human immunodeficiency virus antibody test
    - Study participant met any mandatory withdrawal or mandatory study drug discontinuation criteria MG0003 [NCT03971422] or discontinued study medication in MG0003, with the exception of discontinuation due to a need for rescue treatment

    - Evidencia de tuberculosis (TB) activa o latente documentada mediante historia clínica y examen, si procede, radiografías de tórax (anteroposterior y lateral) y pruebas de TB mediante una prueba de QuantiFERON®-TB Gold positiva (no indeterminada).
    - El participante ha recibido una vacuna viva atenuada en las 8 semanas previas a la visita basal; o tiene la intención de recibir una vacuna viva atenuada en el trascurso del estudio o en las 8 semanas siguientes a la dosis final de la medicación del estudio.
    - Participante del estudio que haya experimentado reacción de hipersensibilidad después de la exposición a otras drogas contra el receptor Fc neonatal (FcRn).
    - Participante con debilidad grave (definida como grado 3 en la escala de actividades de la vida diaria en la miastenia gravis (AVD-MG)) que afecte a los músculos orofaríngeos o respiratorios, o con crisis miasténica o crisis inminente.

    Si el participante del estudio tiene elevaciones sólo en la bilirrubina total que es >ULN y <1.5xULN, la bilirrubina fraccionada puede identificar un posible síndrome de Gilbert no diagnosticado (es decir, bilirrubina directa <35%).
    Para los participantes del estudio aleatorizado con un resultado basal >ULN para ALT, AST, ALP, o bilirrubina total, pero <1.5xULN, un diagnóstico basal y / o la causa de cualquier elevación clínicamente significativa debe ser entendido y registrado en el cuaderno electrónico de recogida de datos (eCRF). Las pruebas que den como resultado ALT, AST o ALP hasta un 25% por encima del límite de exclusión (>2xULN) pueden repetirse una vez para su confirmación.
    - El participante del estudio tiene una prueba positiva de anticuerpos del virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana.
