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   42564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) Subjects, who completed the last treatment visit of the previous double-blind brexpiprazole BPD trial and who, in the opinion of the investigator, could potentially benefit from administration of brexpiprazole for the treatment of BPD.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1) Sexually active males or females of childbearing potential (FOCBP) who do not agree to practice 2 different methods of birth control or remain abstinent during the trial and for 30 days after the last dose of IMP. If employing birth control, 2 of the following precautions must be used: vasectomy, tubal ligation, intrauterine device, birth control pill, birth control implant, birth control depot injection, condom with spermicide, sponge with spermicide, or occlusive cap (vaginal diaphragm or cervical/vault cap) with spermicide. Male or female subjects identifying as homosexual with exclusively same-sex partners may not be required to practice birth control methods following discussion with the investigator and medical monitor.
    Male subjects must also agree not to donate sperm from trial screening/baseline through 30 days after the last dose of IMP.
    2) Women who are breastfeeding and/or who have a positive pregnancy test result prior to receiving IMP.
    3) Subjects who fulfill the following criteria related to suicide and/or suicidal ideation at entry are excluded:
    - Subjects who have a significant risk of committing violent acts, serious self-harm, or suicide, or those who are homicidal or considered to be a high
    risk to others, or subjects with a response of “yes” on the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) Suicidal Ideation Item 5 (Active Suicidal
    Ideation with Specific Plan and Intent), OR
    - Subjects with a response of “yes” on the C-SSRS Suicidal Behavior Items Actual Attempt, Interrupted Attempt, or Aborted Attempt
    - Subjects who endorse engaging in preparatory acts and/or non-suicidal self-injury may be included according to investigator judgment, provided the
    behavior has not increased significantly in frequency or severity during the preceding double-blind trial period, and after discussion and approval by the medical monitor.
    4) Subjects with abnormal laboratory tests results, vital signs results, or electrocardiogram (ECG) findings, unless, based on the investigator’s judgment, the findings are not medically significant and would not impact the safety of the subject or the interpretation of the trial results. The medical monitor should be contacted to discuss individual cases, as needed. In addition, subjects with the following laboratory test and ECG results at
    screening must be excluded from the trial:
     Platelets ≤ 75000/mm3
     Hemoglobin ≤ 9 g/dL
     Neutrophils, absolute ≤ 1000/mm3
     Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 2 × the upper limit of normal (ULN)
     Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 2 × ULN
     Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) > 3 × ULN, unless discussed with and approved by the medical monitor
     Creatinine ≥ 2 mg/dL
     QT interval corrected for heart rate using Fridericia’s formula (QTcF) ≥ 450 msec in men and ≥ 470 msec in women, unless due to ventricular
    pacing. Tests with exclusionary results should be repeated to ensure reproducibility of the abnormality before excluding a subject based on the criteria noted above. For ECGs, perform 3 consecutive recordings. If 2 of the 3 remain exclusionary then the subject must be excluded.
    1) Hombres sexualmente activos o mujeres en edad fértil que no acepten la utilización de 2 métodos distintos de control anticonceptivo o la abstinencia durante el ensayo y durante los 30 días siguientes a la última dosis del PEI. Si se utiliza algún método anticonceptivo, deben usarse dos de los siguientes métodos: vasectomía, ligadura de trompas, dispositivo intrauterino, píldora anticonceptiva, implante anticonceptivo, inyecciones anticonceptivas de depósito, preservativo o esponja con espermicida o capuchón oclusivo (diafragma vaginal o capuchón cervical/cúpula vaginal) con espermicida. Es posible que, tras comentarlo con el investigador y el supervisor médico, no se exija que utilicen métodos anticonceptivos a los participantes que se identifiquen como homosexuales con parejas exclusivamente del mismo sexo.
    Los pacientes hombres deben estar de acuerdo, además, en no donar esperma desde la selección/el inicio del ensayo y durante los 30 días siguientes a la administración de la última dosis del PEI.
    2) Mujeres en período de lactancia o que hayan obtenido un resultado positivo en alguna prueba de embarazo antes de recibir el PEI.
    3) Se excluirá a los pacientes que cumplan con los siguientes criterios relacionados con el suicidio o las tendencias suicidas en el momento de su incorporación:
    - Pacientes que presenten un riesgo considerable de cometer actos violentos, autolesionarse gravemente o suicidarse, o los que presenten tendencias homicidas o se consideren un gran riesgo para otras personas, así como pacientes con una respuesta afirmativa en el ítem 5 sobre ideación suicida de la Escala de puntuación de la intensidad de las intenciones suicidas de Columbia (Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale, C-SSRS; ideación suicida activa con plan específico e intención); O
    - Pacientes con una respuesta afirmativa a los ítems de conducta suicida de la C-SSRS, intento real, intento interrumpido o intento abortado;
    - Podrá incluirse a los pacientes que apoyen la participación en actos preparatorios o autolesiones no suicidas, a criterio del investigador, siempre y cuando la frecuencia o gravedad de tal conducta no hayan aumentado de modo considerable durante el período del anterior ensayo doble ciego y tras comentarlo con el supervisor médico y recibir su aprobación.
    4) Pacientes con anomalías en los resultados de los análisis de laboratorio, las constantes vitales o los resultados de los electrocardiogramas (ECG) a menos que, según el criterio del investigador, los resultados no sean clínicamente importantes y no afecten a la seguridad del paciente ni a la interpretación de los resultados del ensayo. Se deberá consultar con el supervisor médico para comentar los casos particulares, según sea necesario. Además, debe excluirse del ensayo a los pacientes con los siguientes resultados en las pruebas analíticas y los ECG en el momento de la selección:
    Plaquetas ≤ 75 000/mm3
    Hemoglobina ≤ 9 g/dl
    Neutrófilos, cantidad absoluta, ≤ 1000/mm3
    Aspartato aminotransferasa (AST) > 2 veces el límite superior de la normalidad (LSN)
    Alanina aminotransferasa (ALT) > 2 veces el LSN
    Creatinfosfocinasa (CPK) > 3 veces el LSN, salvo que se haya consultado con el supervisor médico y lo haya aprobado
    Creatinina ≥ 2 mg/dl
    Intervalo QT corregido para la frecuencia cardíaca mediante la fórmula de Fridericia (QTcF) ≥ 450 ms en hombres y ≥ 470 ms en mujeres, a menos que dispongan de estimulación ventricular. Antes de excluir a un paciente basándose en los criterios señalados antes, deben repetirse una vez las pruebas con resultados excluyentes para garantizar la reproducibilidad de la anomalía. En el caso de los ECG, deben realizarse 3 pruebas consecutivas. Si dos de las 3 continúan siendo excluyentes, deberá excluirse al paciente.
