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   42316   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6969   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of two different doses of lutikizumab, a high dose administered every week (EW) or every other week (EOW), and a low dose administered EOW, versus placebo for the treatment of signs and symptoms of moderate to severe HS in adult subjects who have failed anti-TNF therapy.
    El objetivo principal de este estudio es evaluar la seguridad y la eficacia de dos dosis diferentes de lutikizumab, una dosis alta administrada cada semana (EW) o cada dos semanas (EOW), y una dosis baja administrada EOW en comparación con un placebo para el tratamiento de los signos y síntomas de la HS moderada o grave en adultos que no han respondido al tratamiento anti-TNF
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary endpoint is the achievement of at least a 30% reduction and at least 1-unit reduction from Baseline in worst skin pain (maximal daily pain) at Week 16, as assessed by the Patient's Global Assessment (PGA) of Skin Pain (Numeric Rating Scale [NRS] 30) among subjects with baseline NRS ≥ 3.
    El criterio de valoración secundario es la consecución de una reducción de al menos el 30 % y una reducción de al menos una unidad del peor dolor cutáneo (dolor diario máximo) entre el momento basal y la semana 16, según la evaluación global del paciente (PGA) del dolor cutáneo (escala de valoración numérica [EVN] 30) en los sujetos con una EVN basal ≥3.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Subjects must be ≥ 18 years of age at Screening with a clinical diagnosis of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) for at least 1 year prior to Baseline as determined by the investigator.
    - A total abscess and inflammatory nodule (AN) count of >= 5 at Baseline
    - HS lesions must be present in at least 2 distinct anatomic areas.
    - Must have failed anti-TNF treatment for HS.
    • Los sujetos deberán tener una edad ≥ 18 años en el periodo de selección, un diagnóstico clínico de HS desde al menos un año antes del momento basal según lo determinado por el investigador.
    • Un recuento total de abscesos y nódulos inflamatorios (AN) ≥5 en el momento basal
    • presencia de lesiones de HS en dos regiones anatómicas distintas como mínimo.
    • Los sujetos no habrán respondido al tratamiento anti-TNF para la HS.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    History of active skin disease other than HS that could interfere with the assessment of HS, including skin infections (e.g., bacterial, fungal, or viral) requiring systemic treatment within 4 weeks of the Baseline visit.
    Antecedentes de enfermedades cutáneas activas distintas de la HS que puedan interferir con la evaluación de la HS, incluidas las infecciones cutáneas (por ejemplo, bacterianas, fúngicas o virales) que requieran tratamiento sistémico en las 4 semanas siguientes a la visita inicial.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the achievement of HiSCR at Week 16. HiSCR is defined as at least a 50% reduction from Baseline in the total AN count, with no increase in abscess count and no increase in draining fistula-count relative to Baseline.
    El criterio de valoración principal es la consecución de una RCHS en la semana 16. La RCHS se define como una reducción de al menos el 50 % en el total de AN sin un aumento del número de abscesos ni del número de fístulas supurantes con respecto al momento basal.
