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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Provide written informed consent, in accordance with EMA guidance on the management of clinical trials during COVID-19 pandemic (Version 2, 27 March 2020). If written consent by the trial participant is not possible (for example because of physical isolation due to COVID-19 infection), consent could be given orally by the trial participant (Art 2(j) of Directive 2001/20/EC) in the presence of an impartial witness. In such cases, the witness is required to sign and date the informed consent document and the Investigator is expected to record how the impartial witness was selected.
    2. Male or female subjects with a minimum age of 18 years (or legal age of consent if <18 years) at Visit 1.
    3. Subjects with a stable kidney transplant taking TAC and a confirmed diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 by nuclear acid testing, with mild-to-moderate symptoms.
    4. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at baseline. Two effective forms of contraception must be used simultaneously unless abstinence is the chosen method. Subjects must use effective contraception during the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Subjects unable or unwilling to give written informed consent and/or to comply with study procedures.
    2. Any known hypersensitivity or contraindication to CNIs, especially CsA, or components of any cyclosporine drug product.

    • Congenital immunodeficiency.
    • Severe, known, active viral infections, excluding SARS-CoV-2, within 3 months of baseline (e.g., cytomegalovirus, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus or HIV) that are deemed to interfere with study assessments or outcome according to Investigator’s judgement.
    4. Severe symptoms resulting from SARS-CoV-2 infection requiring positive pressure ventilation at baseline.
    5. Other major physical or psychiatric illness or major traumatic injury or any other medical condition associated with increased risk to the subject or that may affect study conduct or interfere with study assessments or outcome according to Investigator’s judgement.
    6. Subjects who are pregnant, breast feeding or, if of childbearing potential, not using adequate contraceptive precautions.
    7. Participation in another interventional clinical study within 4 weeks prior to baseline and/or receipt of investigational drugs within 4 weeks or 5 half-lives of the drug (whichever is longer) prior to baseline.
    8. Subjects less than 3 months post-transplant.
    9. Subjects with documented organ rejection within the past 3 months.
