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   42869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Number of participants with treatment emergent Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) An AE is any untoward medical occurrence (e.g. any unfavorable and unintended sign [including abnormal laboratory findings], symptom or disease) in a clinical investigation participant after providing written informed consent for participation in the study.

    Number of participants with important identified and important potential risks (Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI)) The following are important identified and important potential risks (AESI) associated with OAV101: Hepatotoxicity, Thrombocytopenia, Cardiac adverse events, Sensory abnormalities suggestive of ganglionopathy, and Thrombotic microangiopathy. These will be assessed by the investigator.

    Change from baseline in vital signs measurements - systolic and diastolic blood pressure (mmHg)

    Change from baseline in vital signs measurements - respiratory rate (breaths per minute)

    Change from baseline in vital signs measurements - pulse (beats per minute)

    Change from baseline in vital signs measurements - temperature (degrees Celsius)

    Change from baseline in vital signs measurements - oxygen saturation level (%)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    up to 12 months
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Achievement of development motor milestones according to the Bayley Scale of Infant and Toddler Development.
    Developmental motor milestones are assessed via the developmental milestone checklist, formed of 10 yes/no questions with optional video documentation. The developmental milestones are: head control, sitting with support, sitting without support, sitting without support for 30 seconds, hands-and-knees crawling, pulls to stand, standing with assistance, walking with assistance, standing alone and walking alone. A yes response indicates that the patient reached a particular development milestone.

    Change from baseline in Hammersmith Functional Motor Scale - Expanded (HFMSE), as appropriate according to participant age
    The HFMSE was devised for use in children with SMA to give objective information on motor ability and clinical progression. The HFMSE is formed of 33 assessments rated from 0 (unable to perform functional task) to 2 (able to perform functional task unassisted). Higher scores indicated higher levels of motor ability.

    Change from baseline in Revised Upper Limb Module (RULM), as appropriate according to participant age.
    The RULM assesses motor performance in the upper limbs from childhood through adulthood in ambulatory and non-ambulatory individuals with SMA. 'The scale consists of an entry item to establish functional levels and 19 items covering distal to proximal movements. The entry item is a modified version of the Brooke scale, including activities ranging from no functional use of hands (score 0) to full bilateral shoulder abduction (score 6). The entry item does not contribute to the total score but serves as a functional classification of overall upper limb functional ability. Of the remaining 19 items, 18 are scored on a 3 point scoring system and 1 item is scored on a 2 point scoring system. The test is performed unilaterally using the limb preferred by the participant. The total score ranges from 0, if all the items cannot be performed, to 37, if all the activities are achieved fully without any compensation. ' Higher scores indicate higher levels of motor ability.
