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   41201   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6744   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Telangiectasis predominantly observed in the nasal mucosa and gut, and are abnormal, thin walled blood vessel that can easily rupture leading to hemorrhage.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    A genetic disorder called Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia, also known as Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess the efficacy and safety of oral tacrolimus in reducing bleeding severity in HHT patients with severe epistaxis and/or gastrointestinal bleeding. The primary objective is to measure the hemoglobin level at the beginning and during the trial.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    As secondary outcomes, reduction in the epistaxis severity score (ESS), quality of life, the safety (side-effects, (s)AEs) of the therapy, and difference in monthly epistaxis duration, epistaxis frequency, the use of iron infusions, blood transfusions, mean ferritin will be evaluated after 20 weeks of therapy compared to the parameters at baseline.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    1. Oral tacrolimus for epistaxis in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome of this study is the difference in hemoglobin levels at the baseline compared to that at the end of the trial
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The primary end point will be evaluated at the baseline and at the end of the trial. The difference will be calculated
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Difference in monthly epistaxis severity measured with:
    o Epistaxis severity score (ESS);
    o Monthly number of episodes;
    o Monthly duration;
    o Monthly intensity;
    o VAS score of epistaxis.
    • Difference in biochemical blood values: Hb and ferritin.
    • Differences in required number of blood transfusions and iron infusions.
    • Difference in quality of life with SF-36 and fatigue complaints (MFI-20) between baseline and end of the study.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    All the secondary end points will be evaluated at the baseline and at the end of the trial. The only exception is the difference in required number of blood transfusions and iron infusions. We will compare the number of required number of blood transfusions and iron infusions during the trial (20 weeks) and to the same period prior to the trial

If the bleeding reoccurs, patients are allowed to restart tacrolimus treatment. The tacrolimus treatment will then be coordinated by the treating pulmonologists of the St. Antonius Hospital, experienced with tacrolimus treatment for HHT.
