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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    • To evaluate the efficacy of upadacitinib compared with placebo on reduction of signs and symptoms in adult subjects with active axSpA including bDMARD-IR AS (Study 1) and nr-axSpA (Study 2);
    • To assess the safety and tolerability of upadacitinib in subjects with active axSpA including bDMARD-IR AS (Study 1) and with nr axSpA (Study 2).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of upadacitinib in extended treatment in adult subjects with active axSpA including bDMARD-IR AS who have completed the Double-Blind Period (Study 1) and with nr-axSpA who have completed the Double-Blind Period (Study 2).

    • To evaluate the maintenance of disease control after withdrawal of upadacitinib in those who achieved ASDAS < 1.3 at Week 104 and ASDAS < 2.1 at Week 88.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • adult females and males who are at least 18 years of age
    • clinical diagnosis of AS who meet the modified New York Criteria for AS (Study 1); OR
    • clinical diagnosis of nr-axSpA fulfilling the 2009 ASAS classification criteria for axSpA but not meeting the radiologic criterion of the modified New York criteria for AS and have objective signs of active inflammation on MRI of sacroiliac joints or based on high sensitivity CRP > ULN (Study 2).
    • must have a BASDAI score ≥ 4 and a Patient's Assessment of Total Back Pain score ≥ 4 based on a 0 – 10 numerical rating scale at the Screening and Baseline Visits.
    • For Study 1, subjects must have exposed to 1 or 2 bDMARD (atleast 1 tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor or 1 interleukin [IL]-17 inhibitor) and subject must have discontinued 1 bDMARD therapy due to either lack of efficacy (after at least 12 weeks of treatment with a bDMARD at an adequate dose) or intolerance (irrespective of treatment duration).
    • For Study 2, prior treatment with at most 1 bDMARD (either 1 TNF inhibitor or 1 IL-17 inhibitor) is allowed in at least 20%, but not exceeding 35% of subjects)
    Remission-Withdrawal Period Specific Criteria:
    • Subject must be on study drug upon completion of the Open-Label Extension Period of Study 1 or Study 2 through Week 104.
    • Subject must achieve ASDAS (CRP) < 1.3 at Week 104 and ASDAS (CRP) < 2.1 at Week 88.
    • Subject must voluntarily sign and date an informed consent to participate in the Remission-Withdrawal Period, approved by an IEC/IRB.
    • Subject must not have a newly suspected/acquired medical condition and/or initiate a new medication since the last dose of study drug that would have precluded his/her enrollment into
    the main study.
    • There must be no reason the Investigator believes that the subject is an unsuitable candidate to participate in the remission-withdrawal period or receive study drug or would place the subjects at risk by continuing to participate in the study.
    • Subjects must be willing to keep background axSpA medications stable during the Remission-Withdrawal Period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Subject must not have total spinal ankylosis
    • Subjects who have had an inadequate response to both a TNF inhibitor and IL-17 inhibitor are not eligible.
