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.

    To evaluate the effect of tezepelumab on Nasal Polyp Score and Participant Reported Nasal Congestion
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Key Secondary Objectives:

    To evaluate the effect of tezepelumab on loss of smell, nasal polyp-quality of life compared with placebo, NP surgery and/or receiving SCS for NP, sinus opacification, NPSD total symptom score (TSS), resolution/near complete resolution of nasal polyps (defined as maximum NPS of 1 in each nostril), resolution/near complete resolution of nasal polyps (defined as maximum NPS of 1 in each nostril) and NPSD TSS response, and lung function in participants with co-morbid asthma and aspirin exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) /nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug exacerbated respiratory disease (NSAID-ERD).

    Other Secondary Objectives:

    To evaluate the effect of tezepelumab on NPS, participant reported NCS, loss of smell, sinus opacification, systemic corticosteroid use, NPSD, NPIF, asthma control in participants with co-morbid asthma and AERD/NSAID-ERD, and to evaluate the PK and immunogenicity of tezepelumab.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Participants with physician-diagnosed CRSwNP for at least 12 months prior to Visit 1 that have:
    a. Severity consistent with need for surgery as defined by total NPS ≥ 5 (≥ 2 for each nostril) at screening, as determined by the central reader
    b. Nasal Congestion Score (NCS) ≥ 2 at Visit 1
    c. Ongoing documented NP symptoms over > 8 weeks prior to screening such as rhinorrhea and/or reduction/loss of smell

    2. SNOT-22 total score ≥ 30 at screening (Visit 1)

    3. Any standard of care for treatment of CRSwNP provided the participant is stable on that treatment for 30 days prior to Visit 1

    4. Documented treatment of nasal polyposis exacerbation with SCS for at least 3 consecutive days or one IM depo-injectable dose (or contraindications/intolerance to) within the past 12 months prior to Visit 1 but not within the last 3 months prior to visit 1 and/or any history of NP surgery (or contraindications/intolerance to)

    Additional criteria to be checked prior to randomisation (Visit 3)

    1. Confirmed central reading total NPS ≥ 5 (≥ 2 for each nostril) at Visit 2

    2. Bi-weekly mean NCS≥ 2 (baseline bi-weekly mean score collected from study Day -13 to study Day 0)

    3. SNOT-22 score ≥ 30 at randomisation (Visit 3)

    4. At least 8 days of evaluable daily diary data in the 14-day period prior to randomisation (baseline bi-weekly mean score collected from study Day – 13 to study Day 0)

    5. Subjects must have demonstrated a minimum 70% compliance with diary completion during the screening and run-in periods from Visit 1 to Visit 3.

    6. At least 70% compliance with the participant’s background INCS as captured in the eDiary during the screening and run-in periods from Visit 1 to Visit 3.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Any clinically important comorbidities other than asthma (e.g. active lung infection, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis, hypereosinophilic syndromes, etc.) that could confound interpretation of clinical efficacy results.

    2. Sinus surgery within 6 months of screening visit OR any sinus surgery in the past which changed the lateral wall of the nose making NPS evaluation impossible.

    3. Positive COVID-19 PCR test (or COVID-19 rapid test) or COVID-19 entry screening questionnaire during the screening visit. In case of long turnaround time of the nasopharyngeal swab test results from central lab, the site has the following alternatives:
    - Perform COVID-19 nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swab test through local lab
    - Perform a COVID-19 rapid antigen test at the site, provided it is approved by the local health authorities.

    4. Regular use of decongestants (topical or systemic) at enrolment is not allowed unless used for endoscopic procedure.

    5. Use of immunosuppressive medication (including but not limited to: methotrexate, troleandomycin, cyclosporine, azathioprine, mycophenolate, tacrolimus, gold, penicillamine, sulfasalazine, hydroxychloroquine, systemic corticosteroids for condition or any experimental anti-inflammatory therapy) within 3 months prior to Visit 1 and during the study period. Systemic corticosteroid use is defined as treatment with a burst of systemic corticosteroids for at least 3 consecutive days or a single IM depo-injectable dose of corticosteroids (considered equivalent to a 3-day burst of systemic corticosteroids)

    6. Receipt of COVID-19 vaccine (regardless of vaccine delivery platform) 28 days prior to date of IP administration at V3 (randomisation visit).
