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   41472   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6816   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary objective:
    To determine the effectiveness of the active arm(s) in preventing symptomatic (i.e. any of the following: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea), laboratory test-confirmed COVID-19 in healthcare workers with repeated exposures to SARS-CoV-2 by day 60 after receiving treatment intervention.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives:
    1. To determine the effectiveness of the treatment arm(s) in mitigating the severity of COVID-19 in healthcare workers who become infected with SARS-CoV-2 by day 60 after receiving trial intervention. Severity will be graded on a simplified Ordinal WHO COVID-19 severity scale.

    2. To determine the effectiveness of the trial interventions in preventing/reducing the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection (by serology) over up to 5 months of follow-up.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Title: Hydroxychloroquine to reduce the likelihood of
    developing COVID-19 in non-healthcare workers.
    Version: 2.0
    Date: 12 May 2020
    The aims of this sub-study are to determine if the following endpoints in exposed factor workers who are not following recommended social distancing are effective.

    Primary endpoint 1:
    If hydroxychloroquine is effective at preventing COVID-19 (a WHO score 1 or above).

    Secondary endpoint:
    The minimum effective dosing schedule of hydrochloroquine for preventing COVID-19 and/or mitigating severity in onset of the disease.

    The study design will be identical to the main study. The differences are that this sub-study is taking place only in UK factory workers at two sites and that the primary endpoint will be diagnosis of COVID-19, whether symptomatic or not.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1.Volunteers without clinical evidence of COVID-19 infection aged 18 years and older.
    2.Healthcare workers based in a primary, secondary or tertiary healthcare settings with a high risk of developing COVID-19 due to their potential exposure to patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection.
    3.The participant must have a mobile phone and access to the Internet for data collection purposes.
    4.Participants who are willing and able to provide informed consent via an electronic consent process.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    The following additional exclusion criteria, listed in the appendices, are applicable to the MMR intervention arm:
    1. pregnant women
    2. Individuals receiving high dose corticosteroids, other immuno-suppressive drugs, alkylating agents or anti-metabolites
    3. individuals undergoing radiotherapy
    4. any malignant disease either untreated or currently undergoing therapy

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Symptomatic COVID-19: Clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 with laboratory confirmation (i.e. based on viral PCR), and symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea) by day 60 after receiving treatment intervention.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The final analysis of the primary endpoint will take place once all study participants have reached their primary endpoint 60 days after commencement of trial intervention.

    In addition, this Bayesian trial will perform frequent interim analyses for efficacy, futility and harm. This means that the DMC will regularly consider the balance of benefit and risk. Strong evidence of benefit, futility, or harm will result in the advice to modify or stop the trial.

    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary endpoint of special interest:
    Severity of COVID-19 over the study period using the WHO scoring system 0 to 8 where 0 is uninfected and 8 is death.

    Secondary endpoints:
    ● Primary endpoint, but instead of the 60-day time-window, over the course of the first 30 days of treatment
    ● Symptomatic COVID-19 (with subsequent virological confirmation) during the 5-month study period.
    ● Incident COVID-19 during the 60-day study period, which includes asymptomatic infections identified by serology samples taken at the time-point of study exit.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Secondary outcomes will be evaluated at interim analyses and at the end of the trial once the recruitment and follow-up period has completed and all the data from the last participants last visit has been received.
