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   43850   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7282   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Male or female adult with ADPKD who has completed the treatment period in Stage 1 or Stage 2 of Study EFC15392.

    - The patient has an eGFR >30 mL/min/1.73 m2:
    a) measured at Visit 11 of the EFC15392 study for participant enrolled in the LTS15823 study at the time of Visit 12 (Month 24; end-of treatment visit) of the EFC15392 study.
    b) measured at Screening visit for participant enrolled in the LTS15823 study not concomitantly to the Visit 12 (Month 24; end-of treatment visit) of the EFC15392 study.

    - Contraceptive use by men and women should be consistent with local regulations regarding the methods of contraception for those participating in clinical studies.
    a) Male participants must agree to practice true abstinence in line with their preferred and usual lifestyle or to use double-contraceptive methods for the entire duration of the study and for at least 90 days following their last dose of IMP.
    b) Female participants must have a negative urine pregnancy test at the Baseline visit and agree to practice true abstinence in line with their preferred and usual lifestyle or to use double contraceptive methods (including a highly effective method of contraception) for the entire duration of the study and for at least 6 weeks following their last dose of IMP.

    - Capable of giving signed informed consent before performance of any study related procedures not part of standard medical care.

    - Able to read, comprehend, and respond to the study questionnaires.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Participants are excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply:

    For participants who have lag phase between the end of the EFC15392 study and Screening visit (Visit 0) in the LTS15823 study:
    -The patient has a new clinically significant, uncontrolled medical condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would put the safety of the patient at risk through participation, or which would affect the efficacy or safety analysis if the condition exacerbated during the study, or that may significantly interfere with study compliance, including all prescribed evaluations and follow-up activities.
    -A history of drug abuse and/or alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence during the lag phase between the end of the EFC15392 study and Screening visit (Visit 0) in the LTS15823 study when applicable.
    -Administration of tolvaptan or other polycystic kidney disease-modifying agents (somatostatin analogues) within 3 months prior to the Screening visit (Visit 0) in the LTS15823 study when applicable.
    -The patient is currently receiving potentially cataractogenic medications, including a chronic regimen (more frequently than every 2 weeks) of any route of corticosteroids (including medium and high potency topical steroids), or any medication that may cause cataract, according to the Prescribing Information.
    -The patient has received strong or moderate inducers or inhibitors of CYP3A4 within 14 days or 5 half lives, whichever is longer, prior to the Baseline visit (including consumption of grapefruit-containing products within 72 hours of starting venglustat administration).
    -Participation in another investigational interventional study or use of IMP, within 3 months or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer, before the Baseline visit (Visit 1) except participation in
    the EFC15392 study when applicable.
    -Liver enzymes (alanine aminotransferase /aspartate aminotransferase) or total bilirubin >2 times the upper limit of normal unless the patient has the diagnosis of Gilbert syndrome. Patients with the Gilbert syndrome should have no additional symptoms or signs which suggest hepatobiliary disease and serum total bilirubin level no more than 3 mg/dL (51 ╬╝mol/L) with conjugated bilirubin less than 20% of the total bilirubin fraction.

    For participants with or without lag phase between the end of EFC15392 study and entry into LTS15823 study:
    -The patient is pregnant or lactating.
    -Presence of severe depression as measured by Beck Depression Inventory II >28 at Visit 1 (for participants enrolled in the LTS15823 study at the time of the end of treatment visit of the EFC15392 study) or at Visit 0 (for participants enrolled in the LTS15823 study after the end-of-treatment visit of the EFC15392 study).
    -Sensitivity to any of the study interventions, or components thereof, or drug or other allergy that, in the opinion of the Investigator, contraindicates participation in the study.
