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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    •Signed informed consent form.
    • Age <21 years at time of randomization.
    •Subjects with genetic confirmation of inherited mitochondrial disease with associated epilepsy phenotype (Alpers/POLG, Leigh syndrome, MELAS), or other genetically confirmed mitochondrial diseases secondary to mitochondrial mutations (Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia Type 6 [PCH6], nuclear DNA RARS2 mutation) or myoclonic epilepsy with ragged red fibers (MERRF, mitochondrial DNA [mtDNA] mitochondrially encoded tRNA lysine [MT-TK] mutation) are eligible.

    •Despite treatment with at least 2 antiepileptic drugs:
    ◦have ≥6 observed motor seizures occurring during the 28 days prior to the baseline visit (Day 0).
    ◦have ≥2 observed motor seizures in the first 14 days and ≥2 in the second 14 days of the Run-in period (Day -14).
    ◦do not have a consecutive 20-day seizure free period.
    ◦have at least 80% of seizure diary data.
    No changes to the AED regimen will be allowed (except weight-based dose adjustments) during the first 24-week period.

    •Documented medical history of epilepsy symptoms associated with mitochondrial disease for at least 6 months prior to screening except for subjects who are <2 years of age at the time of screening (subjects <2 years of age can be considered for enrollment if all other screening criteria are met due to the potential for rapid progression in these subjects).
    •Consent to abstain from non-approved therapies for 30 days prior to the baseline visit (Day 0) and for the duration of the study.
    •Stable dose regimen of antiepileptic therapies 30 days prior to the screening visit
    •Stable regimen of dietary supplements 30 days prior and, if on a ketogenic diet, stable ketogenic diet 90 days prior to the screening visit and for duration of the study.
    •Electroencephalogram (EEG) at screening or historical EEG up to 6 months prior to screening for diagnostic confirmation of epilepsy.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    •Allergy to vatiquinone or sesame oil.
    •Aspartate transaminase (AST) or alanine transaminase (ALT) ≥3×ULN at time of screening
    •INR > ULN at time of screening
    •Serum creatinine ≥1.5 × ULN at time of screening.
    •Participation in another interventional clinical trial 60 days prior to randomization or for the duration of this clinical trial
    •Previously received vatiquinone.
    •Concomitant treatment with drug(s) that have not received regulatory agency approval for the treatment of mitochondrial diseases and use of artisanal (non-Epidiolex cannabidiol) cannabidiol therapies.
    •Ongoing treatment with strong cytochrome P450 (CYP) inhibitors such as itraconazole or strong CYP inducers such as rifampin. Treatment with these agents must be completed at least 4 weeks prior to enrollment.
    •Pregnant or lactating participants or those male and female sexually active subjects who are unwilling to comply with proper birth control methods. Females of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and during the baseline visit (Day 0).
    •Comorbidities that may confound study results (eg, fat malabsorption syndrome, other mitochondrial disorders) in the opinion of the investigator
