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   41232   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6757   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) .

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of losmapimod in inhibiting or reducing expression of DUX4, the root cause of FSHD, as measured by a subset of DUX4-regulated gene transcripts in skeletal muscle biopsies from FSHD subjects.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are:
    • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of losmapimod in FSHD subjects
    • To evaluate the plasma concentrations of losmapimod and its metabolite GSK198602 in FSHD subjects
    • To evaluate the levels of losmapimod and GSK198602 in skeletal muscle in FSHD subjects
    • To evaluate losmapimod target engagement in blood and in skeletal muscle in FSHD subjects
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Capable of understanding the written informed consent, and providing signed, dated, and witnessed written informed consent.
    2. Male or female subjects between the ages of 18 and 65 years, inclusive.
    3. Confirmed diagnosis of FSHD1 with 1 to 9 repeats via assessment of the size of the D4Z4 array on chromosome 4 using the calculator provided by the sponsor. Randomization will be stratified to ensure that treatment allocation is balanced across FSHD repeat number categories (ie, 1 to 3 repeats versus 4 to 9 repeats). Genetic confirmation must be obtained prior to the screening MRI and baseline muscle biopsy; genetic confirmation can come from previous testing if verified with appropriate documentation. Due to stable transmission of repeat sizes within families, subjects with a clinical diagnosis of FSHD who have a first-degree relative with a genetically confirmed diagnosis of FSHD1 may be entered into the study for screening and MRI. During screening, a confirmatory genetic diagnosis is conducted. If genetic testing during screening is necessary, the 4-week screening window will not start until the results are obtained and verified by the principal investigator.
    4. Clinical severity score of 2 to 4 (RICCI score; range 0-5), inclusive, at screening.
    5. Has a MRI-eligible muscle for biopsy, as determined by a central reader.
    6. Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, study restrictions, laboratory tests, contraceptive guidelines, and other study procedures.
    7. Willing to practice an approved method of birth control:
    • A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of non-child-bearing potential, defined as premenopausal females with permanent sterilization (includes hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or bilateral salpingectomy in a female subject of any age); or postmenopausal, defined as 12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea; or, if of child-bearing potential, if she is using a highly effective method for avoidance of pregnancy and will continue to use these methods for the duration of the study and until 90 days after the last dose of study drug. The decision to include or exclude women of child-bearing potential may be made at the discretion of the investigator and in accordance with local practice in relation to adequate contraception.
    • Male subjects must agree to use a contraception method. This criterion must be followed for the duration of the study and until 90 days after the last dose of study drug.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Has a history of any illness or any clinical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, might confound the results of the study or pose an additional risk in administering study drug to the subject. This may include, but is not limited to, a history of relevant drug or food allergies; history of cardiovascular or central nervous system disease; neuromuscular diseases except FSHD (eg, myopathy, neuropathy, neuromuscular junction disorders); or clinically significant history of mental disease.
    2. Previously diagnosed cancer that has not been in complete remission for at least 5 years. Localized carcinomas of the skin and carcinoma in situ of the cervix that have been resected or ablated for cure are not exclusionary.
    3. For subjects who are on drug(s) or supplements that may affect muscle function, as determined by the treating physician: subjects must be on a stable dose of that drug(s) or supplement for at least 3 months prior to the first dose of study drug and remain on that stable dose for the duration of the study. Changes to the dose or treatment discontinuation during the study can only be done for strict medical reasons by the treating physician with clear documentation and notification to the sponsor.
    4. History of febrile illness within 5 days before randomization. Subjects who were healthy during screening but develop febrile illness in the 5 days before randomization need to have the baseline visit postponed until the febrile illness is fully resolved. Once the febrile illness is fully resolved, the subject’s baseline visit can be scheduled. The duration of the screening visit in such cases can be extended for up to 35 days.
    5. Known active tuberculosis, active opportunistic, or life-threatening infections.
    6. Acute or chronic history of liver disease or known to have current alanine aminotransferase ≥2 × upper limit of normal (ULN) or total bilirubin >1.5 × ULN, or known history of hepatitis B or C.
    7. Known severe renal impairment (defined as a glomerular filtration rate of <30 mL/min/1.73m2).
    8. Positive screen for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody, or antibodies against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 and -2.
    9. Standard 12-lead ECG demonstrating QTcF >450 msec for male subjects or QTcF >470 msec for female subjects at screening. If QTcF exceeds 450 msec for males or 470 msec for females, the ECG will be repeated 2 more times, and the average of the 3 QTcF values will be used to determine the subject’s eligibility.
    10. History of cardiac dysrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmia treatment(s) or history or evidence of abnormal ECGs that, in the opinion of the investigator or medical monitor, would preclude the subject’s participation in the study.
    11. Blood donation (of approximately 1 pint [500 mL] or more) or any significant loss of blood within 90 days before the first dose of study drug, as determined by the investigator.
    12. Vaccination with a live attenuated vaccine within 6 weeks of randomization.
