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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7258   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    HCM is a heart condition that leads to the thickening and scarring of the walls of the heart.
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Cardiovascular Diseases [C14]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.2 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.2Version 20.0
    E.1.2Level PT
    E.1.2Classification code 10020871
    E.1.2Term Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
    E.1.2System Organ Class 10010331 - Congenital, familial and genetic disorders
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To find out if trientine reduces heart muscle thickening in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To find out if trientine improves exercise capacity, improves heart function and reduces abnormal heart rhythms in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The study will also assess how trientine works in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Written informed consent.
    2. Age 18-70 inclusive.
    3. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), as defined by the European Society of Cardiology HCM guidelines as: “a wall thickness ≥15 mm in one or more LV myocardial segments that is not explained solely by loading conditions”. The same definition is applied to first-degree relatives of patients with HCM i.e. all participants are required to have a LV wall thickness ≥15 mm. Wall thickness is as measured on the most recent cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) scan performed prior to the baseline visit. If CMR has not been performed previously, wall thickness measurement should be taken from the most recent echocardiogram performed prior to the baseline visit .
    (It is recognised that in the European Society of Cardiology guidelines a clinical diagnosis of HCM in first-degree relatives requires a wall thickness that is less than this value, however ≥15 mm is applied here in order to ensure that all participants have an unequivocal phenotype).
    4. New York Heart Association class I, II or III at the most recent clinical assessment performed prior to the baseline visit.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Previous or planned septal reduction therapy.
    2. Previously documented myocardial infarction or severe coronary artery disease.
    3. Uncontrolled hypertension, defined as a systolic blood pressure of >180mmHg or a diastolic blood pressure of > 100mmHg at Visit 1.
    4. Known LV EF < 50%, as measured on the most recent CMR scan performed prior to the baseline visit. If CMR has not been performed previously, the most recent echocardiogram performed prior to the baseline visit should be used.
    5. Previously documented persistent atrial fibrillation.
    6. Anaemia, defined as haemoglobin being below the local site normal reference range, at Visit 1.
    7. Iron deficiency, defined as serum iron being below the local site normal reference range, at Visit 1.
    8. Copper deficiency, defined as serum copper being below the normal reference range, at Visit 1.
    9. Pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
    10. Known severe valvular heart disease, as demonstrated on the most recent heart imaging performed prior to the baseline visit.
    11. Previously documented other cardiomyopathic cause of myocardial hypertrophy (e.g. amyloidosis, Fabry disease, mitochondrial disease).
    12. History of hypersensitivity to any of the components of the investigational medicinal product (IMP).
    13. Known contraindication to MRI scanning.
    14. Pregnancy, lactation or planning pregnancy. Women of childbearing capacity are required to have a negative serum pregnancy test before treatment , must agree to pregnancy tests at study visits as defined in the Section 8 and must agree to maintain highly effective contraception as defined in Section 8 during the study.
    15. Any medical condition, which in the opinion of the Investigator, may place the patient at higher risk from his/her participation in the study, or is likely to prevent the patient from complying with the requirements of the study or completing the study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Change in LVMi (g/m2), measured using CMR.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Measured from baseline to week 52.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Cumulative urine copper excretion, measured using urinary copper.
    2. Change in exercise capacity, measured using cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET).
    3. Change in number of non-sinus supraventricular heart beats, presence and amount of atrial fibrillation, number of ventricular-origin beats and presence and amount of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia, in 24 hours, measured using ambulatory heart monitoring.
    4. Change in circulating high sensitivity troponin.
    5. Change in LV global longitudinal strain and strain rate, wall thickness, mass, volumes and ejection fraction (EF) measured using CMR.
    6. Change in peak left ventricular outflow tract gradient, measured using CMR.
    7. Change in atrial volume and function, measured using CMR.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    All assessed from baseline to week 52, except urine copper excretion, which is assessed from baseline to weeks 13, 26, 39 and 52.
