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   43206   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7151   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

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The main objective of this study is to determine whether lowering estrogen and progesterone levels with leuproreline decreases liver growth rates in pre-menopausal women with severe PLD.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives are to assess in these women the effect of leuproreline on PLD-related complaints, quality of life, tolerability and safety.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Female patients with PLD
    - Age 18 to 45 years
    - Very large height adjusted liver volume for age: 18-30 yr >2.0 L/m; 30-35 yr >2.2 L/m, 35-40 yr > 2.5 L/m and >40 years >3.0 L/m
    - Confirmed ongoing liver growth
    - Since somatostatin analogues are proven efficacious therapy for PLD at this time it is required that patients use a somatostatin analogue and still have liver growth (as mentioned above) or the patient has a specific reason not to use this medication (e.g. patient used a somatostatin analogue in the past, but had to stop it due to inefficacy or because they did not tolerate it, or they have a contra-indication for using somatostatin analogues)
    - Availability of at least 1 historical MRI or CT scan made between 5 to 1 years before baseline visit
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Post-menopausal status or (vasomotor) symptoms indicating upcoming menopause;
    - AMH measurement at screening < 0.3
    - Active desire to have pregancy;
    - Contra-indications for leuproreline, such as history of cardiovascular disease, history of osteoporosis or osteoporosis at the dexa-scan at screening;
    - Liver transplantation expected in the next 1.5 years
    - Use of estrogen or progesterone containing medication
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome is the livergrowth, in percent per year, calculated from BL till t=1.5 years, compared between the direct start groep (receiving leuproreline treatment in this period) and the delayed start group (serving as a control group).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    At the end of the trial, the primary outcome will be analyzed, using the calculated liver growth in percent per year during the first 18 months of the trial, compared between the direct start group and the delayed start group.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Polycystic liver disease related complaints, using the validated PLD Questionnaire (8).
    The change in the score on the PLD Questionnaire (Δ PLD-Q score) will be compared between patients in the direct start group and the delayed start group after 18 months of treatment (Δ BL-18 months in the direct start group versus Δ BL-18 months in the delayed start group)


    2. Liver growth rate (in % per year) compared within individuals before start of treatment and during treatment (a paired analysis of growth rates; in the direct start group of historical growth versus growht during the frist 1.5 years of treatment, and in the delayed start group between the first 1.5 years of the trial without treatment and the next 1.5 years of the trial with treatment.


    Exploratory outcomes:
    - liver volume, compared between the direct and delayed start groep after 1.5 years
    - estrogen levels, compared at BL, 3 months after start treatment, 1.5 years, 21 months and 3 years
    - acute effects of the treatment, using the MRI scans 6 months after start of treatment
    - safety and toleratability, incidence of (serious) adverse events, bone-density measured using DEXA-scans, drop-out rate
    - Quality of life, assessed by het SF-36 and BD-II
    - menopause related complaints, assessed by the MENQOL-questionnaire

    In patients with polycystic kidney disease
    - growth rate of kidney volume in the first 1.5 years, compared between the direct start group and delayed start group
    - growth rate of kidney volumes, compared within individuals, before start of treatment and during treatment
    - acute effects of the treatment, using the MRI scans 6 months after start of treatment
    - change in renal function in the first 1.5 years between direct and delayed start group
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Endpoints will be evaluated if the last patient fulfulled the trial follow up. For a detailed description of outcomes please see E.5.2.1.

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    At the end of the study, but depending on the study site, patients will be allowed to continue leuproreline treatment on routine prescription, until study results are available. This is decided because the treatment can lead to menopause-related side effects, especially in the first months of treatment. If treatment would be stopped after the trial and restarted in case of positive trial results, patients experience these menopause symptoms two times.
