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   40995   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6701   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) .

    Pharmacodynamic/biomarker(s):
    Identification of pharmacodynamic biomarker(s) is needed to fully characterize the potential disease modifying effects of masitinib in ALS patients. The aim is to assess, before and during study treatment, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in up to 30 ALS patients and serum biomarkers in up to all randomized ALS patients known to be associated with the evolution of the disease and potentially modulated by masitinib treatment.

    PharmacoGenomic (PG) study:
    Determination of the genetic polymorphisms, including HLA polymorphisms that could be associated with an increased risk of masitinib-induced severe neutropenia and severe skin toxicity.

    PharmacoKinetic (PK) study:
    Measurement of pharmacokinetic parameters of masitinib and Riluzole in up to 10 ALS patients per group and validate population PK model for masitinib.
