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   43387   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7179   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    .Male or female adults, ≥ 18 years of age at time of informed consent.
    .Written informed consent and any locally required authorization.
    .Clinical diagnosis of IgG4-RD.
    .Fulfillment of the 2019 ACR/EULAR classification criteria, as determined by the Eligibility Committee. Specifically, subjects must meet the classification criteria entry requirements (including involvement of one of the following organs: pancreas, bile ducts/biliary tree, orbits, lungs, kidneys, lacrimal glands, major salivary glands, retroperitoneum, aorta, pachymeninges, or thyroid gland [Riedel’s thyroiditis]), must not meet any of the classification criteria exclusions, and must achieve at least 20 classification criteria inclusion points.
    .Experiencing (or recently experienced) an IgG4-RD flare that requires initiation or continuation of GC treatment at the time of informed consent. This criterion may be met in two ways: − On GC therapy for recent IgG4-RD flare, having received a maximum of 4 weeks of treatment prior to informed consent at a dose no higher than 60 mg/day prednisone or equivalent, and at 20 mg/day prednisone or equivalent on the day prior to randomization, or
    − Experiencing active disease not currently being treated at the time of informed consent, with planned initiation of treatment for flare with GC at a maximum dose of 60 mg/day prednisone (or equivalent) and with a plan to be treated at a dose of 20 mg/day of prednisone (or equivalent) on the day prior to randomization, for a total duration of GC treatment during screening of at least 3 weeks at the time of randomization. This GC therapy can either be newly initiated or be increased from a maintenance dose of ≤ 10 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent. Subjects unable to be tapered to 20 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent by Visit 2 may not be randomized.
    .IgG4-RD affecting at least 2 organs/sites at any time in the course of IgG4-RD with documentation to confirm.
    .Willing and able to comply with the protocol, complete study assessments, and complete the study period.
    .Non-sterilized male subjects who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential must use a condom with spermicide from Day 1 through to the end of the study and must agree to continue using such precautions for at least 6 months after the final dose of IP.
    Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening.
    Females of childbearing potential who are sexually active with a non-sterilized male partner must use a highly effective method of contraception from signing informed consent and must agree to continue using such precautions through the end of the follow-up of the study and at least 180 days after the last dose of IP; cessation of contraception after this point should be discussed with a responsible physician. Periodic abstinence, the rhythm method, and the withdrawal method are not acceptable methods of contraception. A recommendation will be made that the female partners (of childbearing potential) of male study participants should use a highly effective method of contraception other than a barrier method.
    Females of childbearing potential are defined as those who are not surgically sterile (ie, surgical sterilization includes bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or hysterectomy) or those who are not postmenopausal (defined as 12 months with no menses without an alternative medical cause and a follicle-stimulating hormone within the postmenopausal range as established by the clinical laboratory).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    .Severe cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hematological, neurological, psychiatric, or systemic disorder, or any other condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would place the patient at unacceptable risk of complications, interfere with evaluation of the IP, or confound the interpretation of patient safety or study results.
    .History of solid organ or cell-based transplantation.
    .Known immunodeficiency disorder.
    .Active malignancy or history of malignancy that was active within the last 10 years.
    .Receipt of any biologic B cell-depleting therapy in the 6 months prior to screening. Receipt of such a B cell-depleting agent in the period 6-12 months prior to screening is exclusionary unless B cell counts have returned to ≥ LLN by central laboratory.
    .Receipt of non-depleting B-cell-directed therapy, abatacept, or other biologic immunomodulatory agent within 6 months prior screening.
    .Receipt of non-biologic DMARD or immunosuppressive agent other than GCs within 4 weeks prior to screening.
    .Receipt of any investigational agent < 12 weeks or < 5 half-lives of the drug prior to screening.
    .Inability to be tapered off of GC therapy by 8 weeks post-randomization, in the opinion of the Investigator.
    .Receipt of live vaccine or live therapeutic infectious agent within the 2 weeks prior to screening.
    .Pregnancy, lactation, or planning to become pregnant within 6 months of the last dose of IP.
    .Positive test for, or prior treatment for, hepatitis B or HIV infection. A positive test for hepatitis B is detection of either (1) hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg); or (2) hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc).
    .History of untreated hepatitis C infection, or positive antibody test for hepatitis C virus (HCV) unless patient is considered to be cured following antiviral therapy and has a HCV load below the limit of detection at least 24 weeks after completion of treatment.
    .Evidence of active tuberculosis (TB) or being at high risk for TB based on: − History of active TB or untreated/incompletely treated latent TB. Patients with a history of active or latent TB who have documentation of completion of treatment according to local guidelines may be enrolled.
    .History of > 1 episode of herpes zoster and/or any other definite or probable opportunistic infection in the 12 months prior to screening.
    .Known history of allergy or reaction to any component of inebilizumab formulation or history of anaphylaxis to any human gamma globulin therapy.
    .Allergy to or intolerance of protocol-required treatment, including medications for prophylaxis of infusion reactions.
    .Estimated glomerular filtration rate < 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease Study (MDRD) equation (NIDDK).
    .Blood tests at screening that meet any of the following criteria: − Hemoglobin < 7.5 g/dL
    − Neutrophils < 1200/mm3
    − Platelets < 110 × 109/L
    − Eosinophil count > 3000/mm3
    − Prothrombin time above upper limit of normal (ULN)
    .Subjects with the following abnormal liver function tests in the absence of hepatobiliary IgG4-RD activity: − Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 2 × ULN
    − Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 2 × ULN
    − Total bilirubin (TBL) > 2 × ULN unless AST, ALT, and hemoglobin are within central laboratory normal range and the patient has a known history of Gilbert syndrome
    Subjects with the following abnormal liver function tests in the presence of hepatobiliary IgG4-RD activity:
    − AST > 10 × ULN
    − ALT > 10 × ULN
    − TBL > 5 × ULN
    Screening liver function tests may be repeated prior to randomization to permit abnormal values due to hepatobiliary IgG4-RD activity to respond to GC treatment.
    .Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) targeted against proteinase 3 or myeloperoxidase at the central laboratory.
    .History of alcohol or drug abuse that, in the opinion of the Investigator, might affect patient safety or compliance with visits or interfere with safety or other study assessments.
    .Active, clinically significant infection at the time of randomization (IP administration may be delayed until recovery, if within screening window, otherwise subject may be rescreened).
    .Participation in any clinical trial that includes use of any pharmacologic intervention.
