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   42312   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6968   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.

    3. Received an autologous or allogeneic HSCT using any conditioning regimen.
    4. ALC <1,000 cells/µL. The local assessment confirming ALC <1,000 cells/µL should be performed no more than 48 hours prior to randomization.
    5. The participant has been diagnosed with RSV infection using a rapid PCR- or other molecular-based diagnostic assay performed on a bilateral mid-turbinate nasal swab sample as part of the study-specific screening assessment or on an upper respiratory tract sample as part of SOC testing.
    6. New onset of at least 1 of the following respiratory symptoms within 4 days prior to the anticipated start of dosing (Day 1): nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, cough or pharyngitis (sore throat), and/or worsening of one of these chronic (associated with previously existing diagnosis, eg, chronic rhinorrhea, seasonal allergies, chronic lung disease) respiratory symptoms within 4 days prior to the anticipated start of dosing (Day 1).
    7. No evidence of new abnormalities consistent with LRTI on a chest X-ray relative to the most recent chest X-ray, as determined by the local radiologist (preferentially) or the investigator. A chest X-ray should be performed no more than 48 hours prior to randomization. If a chest X-ray has not been obtained as part of SOC, it must be obtained during Screening.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Any potential participant who meets any of the following criteria will be excluded from participating in the study:
    1. Admitted to the hospital primarily for a lower respiratory tract disease of any cause as determined by the investigator.
    2. Requires supplemental oxygen at Screening or any time between Screening and randomization.
    3. Documented to be positive for other respiratory viruses (limited to influenza, parainfluenza, human rhinovirus, adenovirus, human metapneumovirus, or coronavirus) within 7 days prior to or at the Screening visit, if determined by local SOC testing (additional testing is not required).
    4. Clinically significant bacteremia or fungemia within 7 days prior to or at Screening that has not been adequately treated, as determined by the investigator.
    5. Known allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to JNJ-53718678 or its excipients.
    6. Bacterial, fungal, or viral pneumonia within 2 weeks prior to Screening that has not been adequately treated, as determined by the investigator.

    8.1 Criterion modified per Amendment 5
    8.2 Clinically significant abnormal ECG findings (other than QTcF interval >450 milliseconds, see exclusion criterion 7.2) not consistent with the underlying condition in the study population, as judged by the investigator based on the machine read ECG results at Screening.
    9. Has evidence of one of the following ECG abnormalities per the machine read ECG results at Screening confirmed by repeat ECG recording:
    - Repetitive premature ventricular contractions (>10/min)
    - Second- or third-degree heart block
