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   7259   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.

    2. To evaluate the effect of nabiximols relative to placebo on other symptoms associated with MS, using the following patient-reported outcomes:
    − PSQI
    − OAB-q-SF
    − MSISQ19
    − To evaluate the effect of nabiximols on the impact of spasticity in MS
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Patient is male or female, aged 18 years or above.
    2. Patient is willing and able to give informed consent for participation in the trial.
    3. Patient is willing and able (in the investigator’s opinion) to comply with all trial requirements.
    4. Willing to allow the responsible authorities to be notified of participation in the trial, if mandated by local law.
    5. Patient is willing to allow his or her primary care practitioner (if they have one) or consulting neurologist (if they have one) to be notified of participation in the trial, if the primary care practitioner/consultant is different to the investigator.
    6. Patient has a diagnosis with any disease subtype of MS, by revised 2017 McDonald criteria, for at least 12 months before Visit 1 (screening) and is expected to remain stable for the duration of the trial.
    7. For patients not receiving any current antispasticity medications they must have been off of any antispasticity medication (e.g., oral or intrathecal baclofen, tizanidine, and/or oral dantrolene) for 30 days prior to Visit 1 (screening) and is not planning to start any antispasticity medication during the trial; and must not plan to initiate a new course of physiotherapy for the duration of the trial.
    8. For those on antispasticity medication (oral or intrathecal baclofen, oral tizanidine, and/or oral dantrolene) these medications must be optimized and stable for at least 30 days prior to Visit 1. Despite optimization, the patient does not have adequate relief of spasticity signs and symptoms, including muscle spasms. Optimization of antispasticity medications is defined as having reached the most efficacious and best tolerated dose according to the relevant local prescribing information. The patient must be willing to maintain the same antispasticity medication and not plan to initiate a new course of physiotherapy for the duration of the trial.
    9. If currently receiving an approved MS disease-modifying therapy, it must be at a stable dose for at least 3 months prior to Visit 1 and is expected to remain stable for the duration of the trial.
    10. If currently receiving dalfampridine or fampridine, it must be at a stable dose for at least 3 months prior to Visit 1 and is expected to remain stable for the duration of the trial.
    Patients are eligible for the treatment period if, in addition to continuing to meet the screening (Visit 1) inclusion criteria, they also meet ALL of the following criteria immediately prior to Visit 2:
    11. Patient has completed at least 12 of the last 14 days of their eDiary reporting immediately prior to Visit 2.
    12. Patient has an average daily spasm count of ≥ 4 during the screening period, as recorded in the eDiary.
    13. Patient has no more than 35 spasms on a single day of the screening period, as recorded in the eDiary.
    14. Patient does not have > 7 consecutive days without experiencing any spasm during screening.
    15. Patient completed at least 12 of the last 14 days of their eDiary reporting immediately prior to Visit 4.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    The patient may not enter the trial if ANY of the following apply:
    1. History of severe psychiatric disorder that may be exacerbated by the use of a cannabinoid-containing product.
    2. Relapse of MS within the 60 days prior to Visit 1.
    3. Patient’s medical history suggests that relapse/remission is likely to occur during the trial, which, in the opinion of the investigator, is expected to influence the patient’s spasticity.
    4. Any concomitant disease or disorder that has spasticity-like symptoms that may influence the patient’s level of spasticity.
    5. Planned clinical interventions or intention to change any medications that may have an effect on spasticity or MS during the trial.
    6. Plans to initiate a new course of physiotherapy during the course of the trial.
    7. Patient has any known or suspected hypersensitivity to cannabinoids or any of the excipients of nabiximols, or any other cannabinoid-containing products used for therapeutic purposes.
    8. Currently taking antipsychotic medications.
    9. Botulinum toxin injection for the relief of spasticity (within 6 months of Visit 1) or is unwilling to abstain for the duration of the trial.
    10. Received an IMP within the 30 days prior to Visit 1.
    11. Patient has travel outside the country and/or US state of residence planned during the trial, unless the patient has confirmation that the IMP is permitted in the destination country/state.
    12. Current use or use of cannabis or a cannabinoid-derived product for medicinal or recreational use within 30 days of Visit 1, or is unwilling to abstain for the duration of the trial.
    13. Currently taking benzodiazepines, unless doses and dosing regimen have been stable for at least 30 days prior to Visit 1.
    14. Previous participation in a clinical trial of nabiximols.
    15. Have been in close contact with persons with diagnosed or suspected COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)

    − Physical examination − 12-lead ECGs
    - C-SSRS at screening (Visit 1), and at each subsequent timepoint with reference to the last assessment (since last visit)

    The exploratory endpoints are as follows:
    • Change from baseline in the PSQI at 14 days prior to Visit 7
    • Change from baseline in OAB-q-SF at 14 days prior to Visit 7
    • Change from baseline in MSISQ19 at 14 days prior to Visit 7
    • Change from baseline in the MSSS-88 at 14 days prior to Visit 7
    • Change from baseline in average daily 11-point NRS spasm severity score to the last 14 days prior to Visit 7
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    - AE's - visit 1-8, Clinical lab tests visit 1,2,4,5 and 7.
    - Vital signs and ECG visit 1 and 2 and visits 4-7.
