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   39587   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6490   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).
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Day 7
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Changes in Tregs between Baseline and Day 7 (expressed in %)
    • - Number of days alive with oxygen therapy within 28 days
    • - Maximal oxygen rate within 28 days
    • - Number of days alive free of invasive or non-invasive ventilation within 28 days
    • - Number of days alive outside ICU within 28 days

    • - Use of antibiotics for respiratory (proved or suspected) infection within 28 days
    • - Number of prone positioning sessions

    Immunomonitoring study.
    Changes in Tregs and in other immunological, inflammatory or cellular parameters during the different visits between baseline and day 28 will be analyzed using ANOVA for ranks considering factor time and treatment .The antiviral TCR identified in BAL will be compare the TCR identified in blood by Mann-Whitney test. Multivariate methods will be used to identify relationships between immune-inflammatory profiles and clinical outcomes of the study.
    • Tregs percentages and numbers during induction period and throughout the follow up period at day 5, 7, 11, 14 and 28 compared to baseline before the first IL-2 injection.
    • Deep Immunophenotyping of immune cells at Day 7, and Day 14 compared to baseline
    • Cytokines and other solubles markers at Day 7, and Day 14 compared to baseline.
    • T cell repertoire on Treg, CD4 and CD8 Teff after sorting from blood at Day 7 and Day 14 and compared to baseline
    • Single cells sequencing will be performed in BAL at Day 7 and Day 14 and compared to baseline.
