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   43973   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    We investigate the efficacy of commercially available glucocorticoid "methylprednisolone" (Solu-Medrol) for reducing the systemic inflammatory response and neurological injury in patients resuscitated after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
    Vi undersøger den antiinflammatoriske og neuroprotektive effekt af det kommercielt tilgængelige glukokortikoid "methylprednisolon" (Solu-Medrol) i patienter genoplivet efter hjertestop uden for hospital.
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Patients resuscitated from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest have a high mortality due to a systemic inflammatory response and severe brain injury. We hope that Solu-Medrol can prevent this response.
    Patienter genoplivet efter hjertestop uden for hospital har en høj dødelighed grundet et inflammatorisk respons og svær hjerneskade. Vi håber at Solu-Medrol kan modvirke dette respons.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of the glucocorticoid "methylprednisolone" (Solu-Medrol) compared with placebo. The co-primary endpoints being serial measurements of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and neuron-specific-enolase (NSE) at admission and 24, 48 and 72 hours after admission in patients admitted after resuscitated OHCA.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of this study are to determine the effects of the glucocorticoid "methylprednisolone" (Solu-Medrol) on inhibition of inflammation, cardiac protection, neuroprotection, renal protection, endothelial protection, clinical endpoints including survival and neurological outcome, as well as safety.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    A subset of the trial participants will be enrolled in a sub-study focusing on cardiac-, respiratory and neuroprotection. This sub-study will include an echocardiography, a lung ultrasound, a brain MR-imaging and a cardiac MR-imaging; echocardiography and lung ultrasound will be performed the day following admission, on day 3, 4 or 5 and after three months, MR-imaging will be performed at regained consciousness and after three months. The intervention will be administered exactly as dictated by the main trial. Therefore, participation in a sub-study will have no impact on the IMP use.

    4. Protein and enzymatic protection: Daily proteomics and metabolomics samples the first three days from admission.
    5. Hemodynamics: Daily evaluation by Swan-Ganz catheter, bihourly analyses of arterial blood gases the first 36 hours and transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) measured the day following admission and on either day 3, 4 or 5.
    6. Neuroprotection: Daily measurements of TAU, NFL, NFM, NFH and GFAP levels the first three days from admission. Formation of cerebral edema decided by MR-imaging of the brain after regained consciousness and consent.
    7. Cardiac protection: Daily measurements of TnT, TnI and CKMB levels the first three days from admission. Infarct size decided by MR-imaging after regained consciousness and consent before discharge from the primary hospital.
    8. Respiratory protection: Lung UltraSound (LUS) performed the day following admission and on either day 3, 4 or 5.
    9. Clinical endpoints: Survival and neurological outcome, decided by mRS score after five days, at discharge from the intensive ward and the hospital and further at 30- and 180- days following discharge through telephone interview.
    10. Follow-up at 90 days following discharge in an ambulatory setting: MoCA-score for assessment of cognitive function and patients will be screened for quality of life, anxiety, depression and the return to daily living with their closest relatives.
    11. Safety: Cumulated daily incidence of adverse events the first seven days, including “severe adverse events” and “adverse events with believed relation to the study medicine”.
