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   43976   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to compare the clinical status of participants in the hIVIG + SOC and placebo + SOC groups on Day 7 using an ordinal outcome with 7 mutually exclusive categories. On Day 7, the worst of the 7 categories the participant was in that day will constitute the primary outcome. The 7 categories are:
    7. Death
    6. End-organ failure
    5. Life-threatening end-organ dysfunction
    4. Serious end-organ dysfunction
    3. Moderate end-organ dysfunction
    2. Limiting symptoms due to COVID-19
    1. No limiting symptoms due to COVID-19
    Appendix F in the protocol provides clinical definitions of each category. In addition to the overall summary odds ratio (OR) that will be estimated as described in Section 11.1, ORs will be estimated for the 6 dichotomized definitions of improvement that can be formulated from the categories of the ordinal outcome.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives will be assessed by comparing hIVIG + SOC with placebo + SOC over the 28 day follow-up period for outcomes listed below.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. SARS-CoV-2 infection documented by PCR or other nucleic acid test (NAT) within 3 days prior to randomization OR documented by NAT more than 3 days prior to randomization AND progressive disease suggestive of ongoing SARS-CoV-2 infection
    2. Symptomatic COVID-19 disease
    3. Duration of symptoms attributable to COVID-19 ≤ 12 days
    4. Requiring inpatient hospital medical care for clinical manifestations of COVID-19 (admission for public health or quarantine only is not included)
    5. Age ≥ 18 years
    6. Willingness to abstain from participation in other COVID-19 treatment trials until after study Day 7
    7. Provision of informed consent by participant or legally authorized representative
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Prior receipt of SARS-CoV-2 hIVIG or convalescent plasma from a person who recovered from COVID-19 at any time
    2. Prior receipt of standard IVIG (not hyperimmune to SARS-CoV-2) within 45 days
    3. Current or predicted imminent (within 24 hours) requirement for any of the following:
     Invasive ventilation
     Non-invasive ventilation
     Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
     Mechanical circulatory support
     Continuous vasopressor therapy
    4. History of allergy to IVIG or plasma products
    5. History of selective IgA deficiency with documented presence of anti-IgA antibodies
    6. Any medical conditions for which receipt of the required volume of intravenous fluid may be dangerous to the patient
     Includes New York Heart Association Class III or IV stage heart failure
    7. Any of the following thrombotic or procoagulant disorders:
     Acute coronary syndromes, cerebrovascular syndromes and pulmonary or deep venous thrombosis within 28 days of randomization  History of prothrombin gene mutation 20210, homozygous Factor V Leiden mutations, antithrombin III deficiency, protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency or antiphospholipid syndrome
    8. Any condition for which, in the opinion of the investigator, participation would not be in the best interest of the participant or that could prevent, limit, or confound the protocol-specified assessments
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The goals of this study are to assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of a single infusion of hIVIG in preventing further progression and mortality related to COVID-19 when administered at the onset of clinical progression, with the aim of improving the long term outcome of the disease process. There is as yet no consensus on the optimal endpoint for determining clinical benefit from COVID-19 therapies, including the constituent elements of the endpoint and the timing of its assessment after randomization. Both may differ depending on the target population and the nature of the treatment studied.
    The primary ordinal outcome captures the range of severity experienced by hospitalized patients with COVID 19, recognizing that end-organ manifestations in addition to pneumonia and ARDS are increasingly emerging as significant contributors to morbidity. The ordinal outcome includes 7 well-defined mutually exclusive categories that assess further progression of disease as well as recovery from COVID-19.
    The ordinal outcome includes both pulmonary manifestations as assessed in prior COVID-19 trials and additional components representing key non-pulmonary outcomes; the latter are highlighted as “extra-pulmonary” in the guidance table (Appendix F). The primary endpoint will include both pulmonary and extra-pulmonary components, while the pulmonary manifestation scale only will be reported as a secondary endpoint.
    Day 7 was chosen for the timing of the primary endpoint for several reasons based on the following assumptions. The impact of hIVIG on disease progression may not be immediate; a few days may be needed to see the effects on clinical outcomes as measured by the ordinal outcome. Also, transient treatment effects that are no longer present at Day 7 may be clinically less relevant. Assessment of the ordinal outcome at a later time point may result in a diminished treatment difference because spontaneous recovery from COVID-19 may have begun in many participants. Also, antibody differences between the treatment groups, an important biologic mechanism for observing a clinical benefit, are assumed to be greatest during the first week after infusion.
    Lastly, use of Day 7 to characterize the clinical severity of participants in 7 categories as studied here, results in a distribution of participants in the placebo group for the ordinal outcome that is sufficiently granular and not overly skewed to the most severe or least severe categories and, therefore, provides good power for comparing the two treatment groups with a feasible sample size given the difficulty in producing large quantities of hIVIG (see Section 5.5).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Day 7 was chosen for the timing of the primary endpoint for several reasons based on the following assumptions. The impact of hIVIG on disease progression may not be immediate; a few days may be needed to see the effects on clinical outcomes as measured by the ordinal outcome. Also, transient treatment effects that are no longer present at Day 7 may be clinically less relevant.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary objectives will be assessed by comparing hIVIG + SOC with placebo + SOC over the 28 day follow-up period for outcomes listed in the protocol page 25. Because there is no established endpoint for evaluating the clinical efficacy of treatments for COVID-19, other clinically relevant outcomes, including outcomes used in other COVID-19 treatment trials, will be recorded. Thus, the randomized groups can be compared for multiple outcomes, and results can be compared or combined with other trials. Many of the endpoints used in other trials are ordinal outcomes or are defined based on a dichotomy of an ordinal outcome and assessed at a single follow-up time point or as a time-to-event outcome.
