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   43233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7153   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 demonstrate superiority of LNP023 vs. placebo in the reduction of proteinuria at 9 months by measuring UPCR sampled from a 24h urine collection.

    To demonstrate superiority of LNP023 vs. placebo in slowing renal disease progression measured by the annualized total slope of Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) decline over 24 months.

    To assess the effect of LNP023 vs. placebo on the proportion of study participants reaching proteinuria below 1g/g of UPCR (sampled from 24h urine collection) at 9 months; To evaluate the effect of LNP023 vs. placebo on slowing renal disease progression measured by the annualized total slope of eGFR decline over 1 year; To assess the effect of LNP023 vs. placebo on the change from baseline to 9 months in fatigue scale measured by the FACIT-Fatigue questionnaire; To demonstrate the superiority of LNP023 vs. placebo on: delaying the time to first occurrence of a composite kidney failure endpoint of reaching either at least 30% decline in eGFR, ESRD or renal death; in the reduction of proteinuria by measuring UPCR sampled from a 24h urine collection; on the proportion of study participants reaching proteinuria below 1g/g of UPCR (sampled from 24h urine collection) at 9 months; on the change from baseline to 9 months in the fatigue scale measured by FACIT-Fatigue questionnaire
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    optional genetic research component
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    •Male and female patients ≥ 18 years of age with an eGFR level and biopsy-confirmed IgA nephropathy as follows:
    •For patients eGFR* ≥ 45ml/min/1.73m2, a qualifying biopsy performed within the last 5 years is required.
    •For patients with eGFR* 30 to <45ml/min/1.73m2 a qualifying biopsy performed within 2 years with < 50% tubulointerstitial fibrosis is required.
    • For patients with eGFR* 20 to <30ml/min/1.73m2,a qualifying biopsy performed at any time.
    In all cases, if a historical biopsy is not available, one may be performed during screening. *eGFR calculated using the CKD-EPI formula (or modified MDRD formula according to specific ethnic groups and local practice guidelines)
    •Proteinuria due to primary diagnosis of IgA nephropathy as assessed at screening by UPCR ≥1 g/g (113 mg/mmol) sampled from FMV or 24h urine collection, as well as at the completion of the run-in period by UPCR ≥1 g/g (113 mg/mmol) calculated as the mean of two 24h urine collections obtained within 14 days of each other at baseline.
    •Vaccination against Neisseria meningitidis infection is required prior to the start of study treatment. If the patient has not been previously vaccinated, or if a booster is required, vaccine should be given according to local regulations at least 2 weeks prior to first study drug administration. If study treatment has to start earlier than 2 weeks post vaccination, prophylactic antibiotic treatment should be initiated.
    •If not previously vaccinated, vaccination against Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae infections should be given, if available and according to local regulations, at least 2 weeks prior to first study drug administration. If study treatment has to start earlier than 2 weeks post vaccination, prophylactic antibiotic treatment should be initiated.
    •All patients must have been on supportive care including stable dose regimen of ACEi or ARB at either the locally approved maximal daily dose or the maximally tolerated dose (per investigators’ judgment) for at least 90 days before first study drug administration. In addition, if patients are taking diuretics or other antihypertensive therapy, or other background medication for IgAN, the doses should also be stabilized for at least 90 days prior to the first dosing of study treatment.

    Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    •Any secondary IgAN as defined by the investigator; secondary IgAN can be associated with cirrhosis, celiac disease, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, herpetiformis, seronegative arthritis, small-cell carcinoma, lymphoma, disseminated tuberculosis, bronchiolitis obliterans, and inflammatory bowel disease, familial mediterranean fever, etc.
    •Sitting office SBP >140 mmHg or DBP >90 mmHg at the randomization visit
    • Patients previously treated with immunosuppressive or other
    immunmodulatory agents such as but not limited to cyclophosphamide, rituximab, infliximab, eculizumab, canakinumab, hydroxychloroquine, mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) or mycophenolate sodium (MPS), cyclosporine, tacrolimus, sirolimus, everolimus, or systemic corticosteroids exposure (>7.5 mg/d prednisone/prednisolone equivalent) within 90 days (or 180 days for rituximab) prior to first study drug administration
    •Prior use of LNP023 or prior enrollment in any other LNP023 clinical trial where study drug was taken, including matching placebo
    •History of recurrent invasive infections caused by encapsulated organisms, such as meningococcus and pneumococcus.
    •Active systemic bacterial, viral (including COVID-19) or fungal infection within 14 days prior to study drug administration.

    Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
