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   42585   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7011   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Evaluate the safety of the intervention through 28 days of follow-up as compared to the control arm

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    The following will be carried out at the Tayside site only.
    Exploratory assessment- viral shedding
    Where practical in a substudy at the Tayside site only, nasal swabs will be obtained on day 15 and day 29 to evaluate viral clearance by PCR.
    Exploratory assessment- neutrophil studies
    In a substudy at the Tayside site only, additional blood will be taken for isolation of peripheral blood neutrophils to examine neutrophil serine protease activity.
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Male or female
    • ≥16 years of age
    • SARS-CoV-2infection (clinically suspected+ or laboratory confirmed*).
    • Admitted to hospital as in-patient less than 96 hours prior to randomisation^
    • Illness of any duration, and at least one of the following:
    o Radiographic infiltrates by imaging (e.g. chest x-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan)
    o Evidence of rales/crackles on physical examination
    o Peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) ≤94% on room air prior to randomization
    o Requiring supplemental oxygen.
    o Lymphocyte count <1 x 109 cells per litre (L)
    • Participant (or legally authorized representative) provides written informed consent
    • Able to take oral medication
    • Participant (or legally authorised representative) understands and agrees to comply with planned trial procedures.
    *Laboratory-confirmed: SARS-CoV-2 infection as determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), or other commercial or public health assay in any specimen < 96 hours prior to randomization.
    +Clinically suspected: in general, SARS-CoV-2 infection should be suspected when a patient presents with (i) typical symptoms (e.g. influenza-like illness with fever and muscle pain, or respiratory illness with cough and shortness of breath); and (ii) compatible chest X-ray findings (consolidation or ground-glass shadowing); and (iii) alternative causes have been considered unlikely or excluded (e.g. heart failure, influenza). However, the diagnosis remains a clinical one based on the opinion of the managing doctor
    ^Where a patient has been admitted to hospital for a non COVID-19 reason and develops COVID-19 symptoms whilst an in-patient, randomisation my occur up to 96 hours from onset of symptoms.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and/or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 5 times the upper limit of normal, result within 72 hours of randomization (the result closest to randomization should be used if several results are available).
    • History of severe liver disease
    • Stage 4 severe chronic kidney disease or requiring dialysis (i.e. eGFR < 30), result within 72 hours of randomization (the result closest to randomization should be used if several results are available)
    • Absolute neutrophil count less than 1.0 x 109 cells per L within 72 hours of randomization (the result closest to randomization should be used if several results are available)
    • Current treatment with potent Cyp3A4 inducers/inhibitors (e.g Itraconazole, Ketoconazole, diltiazem, verapamil, phenytoin or rifampicin)
    • HIV treatments - current treatment with protease/integrase inhibitors or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors*
    • Pregnant or breast feeding.
    • Anticipated transfer to another hospital which is not a trial site within 24 hours.
    • Allergy to Brensocatib
    • Use of any investigational drug within five times of the elimination half-life after the last trial dose or within 30 days, whichever is longer. Co-enrolment with COVID-19 trials is allowed as per co-enrolment agreements and/or individual decision by the CI.
    Women of child-bearing potential must be willing to have pregnancy testing prior to trial entry.
    *The Liverpool HIV checker (https://www.hiv-druginteractions.org/checker) should be used to check for any HIV drug interactions. Simvastatin could be used as a surrogate for Brensocatib as it metabolised similarly by CYP 3A4 pathway.
