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   43207   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  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary outcome is the difference in self-reported disease activity, measured with the Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID-3), between morning and evening dosing of tofacitinib XR after 3 months of treatment.
    De primaire uitkomstmaat is het verschil in de zelfgerapporteerde ziekteactiviteit, gemeten met de Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID-3), tussen ochtend- en avonddosering tofacitinib XR na 3 maanden behandeling.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary endpoints are: (self-reported) disease activity (states); morning stiffness; general health; fatigue; pain; sleep; functional ability; quality of life; worker productivity; treatment satisfaction; and compliance. In addition, we will investigate whether the expression of circadian clock genes and microbiota composition change over time and whether these changes correlate with treatment response.
    Secundaire uitkomstmaten zijn: (zelfgerapporteerde) ziekte-activiteit (stadia); ochtendstijfheid; algemene gezondheid; vermoeidheid; pijn; slaap; functionaliteit; kwaliteit van leven; productiviteit; behandeltevredenheid en compliantie. Daarnaast zullen we onderzoeken of de expressie van klokgenen en de samenstelling van de darmflora verandert over de tijd en/of deze verandering geassocieerd is met de behandelrespons.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Current or previous treatment of arthritis with tsDMARD(s)
    - Prednisone (or equivalent) usage at a dose of >7.5mg

The Investigator should be guided by the following criteria: Any single parameter may not exceed 2 x upper limit of normal (ULN). A single parameter elevated up to and including 2 x ULN should be re-checked once more as soon as possible, and in all cases, at least prior to enrolment/randomization, to rule out laboratory error.
    e. History of renal trauma, glomerulonephritis, or subjects with one kidney only, or a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) < 30 ml/min.
    f. Other underlying metabolic, hematologic, renal, hepatic, pulmonary, neurologic, endocrine, cardiac, infectious or gastrointestinal conditions which in the opinion of the Investigator immunocompromises the patient and/or places the patient at unacceptable risk for participation in an immunomodulatory therapy.

    individuele parameter mag niet 2x de upper limit of normal (ULN) overstijgen. Een individuele parameter die tot en met 2xULN
    bedraagt moet z.s.m. opnieuw worden bepaald en in elk geval alvorens de patiënt wordt geïncludeerd/gerandomiseerd, ter
    voorkoming van fouten in het lab.
    e. Een medische voorgeschiedenis van renaal trauma, glomerulonefritis of proefpersonen met 1 nier of hen die een glomerulaire

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary outcome is the difference in self-reported disease activity, measured with the Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID-3), between morning and evening dosing of tofacitinib XR after 3 months of treatment.
    De primaire uitkomstmaat is het verschil in de zelfgerapporteerde ziekteactiviteit, gemeten met de Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID-3), tussen ochtend- en avonddosering tofacitinib XR na 3 maanden behandeling.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Patients will be assessed at baseline and after 1, 3 and 6 months of treatment. At each visit patients will fill out online questionnaires and are seen by the research nurse, who calculates the DAS or DAPSA depending on the diagnosis.
    Patiënten worden bij randomisatie en na 1,3 en 6 maanden beoordeeld door een onderzoeksverpleegkundige, die afhankelijk van de diagose de DAS of DAPSA berekent. Naast de bezoekmomenten vullen patiënten ook online vragenlijsten in.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Secondary endpoints are: (self-reported) disease activity (states); morning stiffness; general health; fatigue; pain; sleep; functional ability; quality of life; worker productivity; treatment satisfaction; and compliance. In addition, we will investigate whether the expression of circadian clock genes and microbiota composition change over time and whether these changes correlate with treatment response.
    Secundaire uitkomstmaten zijn: (zelfgerapporteerde) ziekte-activiteit (stadia); ochtendstijfheid; algemene gezondheid; vermoeidheid; pijn; slaap; functionaliteit; kwaliteit van leven; productiviteit; behandeltevredenheid en compliantie. Daarnaast zullen we onderzoeken of de expressie van klokgenen en de samenstelling van de darmflora verandert over de tijd en/of deze verandering geassocieerd is met de behandelrespons.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Patients will be assessed at baseline and after 1, 3 and 6 months of treatment. At each visit patients will fill out online questionnaires and are seen by the research nurse, who calculates the DAS or DAPSA depending on the diagnosis. Additional blood and faecal samples will be taken at baseline (T0), 1 month (T1, only blood), 3 months (T3) and 6 months (T6). Finally, patients will wear an actigraph unit, a wristwatch-like package, on the wrist 2-times for 2 weeks at home. The actigraph will be picked up by the patient in the hospital 2 weeks prior to the visit.
    We hebben geprobeerd om het onderzoek zoveel mogelijk een afspiegeling te laten zijn van de dagelijkse praktijk. Patiënten worden bij randomisatie en na 1,3 en 6 maanden beoordeeld door een onderzoeksverpleegkundige, waarna ze hun eigen reumatoloog zien. Naast de bezoekmomenten vullen patiënten online vragenlijsten in. Tevens wordt op alle meetmomenten extra bloed en ontlasting (alleen niet na 1 maand) voor het onderzoek afgenomen. De bloedafnames zullen zoveel mogelijk aan de reguliere polikliniekbezoeken worden gekoppeld, maar het kan hiervan afwijken. Als laatste zullen de patiënten tweemaal gedurende 2 weken een actigraph, een speciale horloge, dragen die zij wel in het ziekenhuizen moeten ophalen.

    The total follow-up duration within this trial is 6 months, continuation of medication at the end of the trial is left to the discretion of the treating rheumatologist and patient. Together they will weigh up the advantages (therapeutic effect) and disadvantages (side effects) of the drug and then come to a decision.
    De beslissing om de medicatie na het onderzoek te continueren ligt bij de behandelend reumatoloog en de patiënt. Zij zullen samen de voor- (therapeutisch effect) en nadelen (bijwerkingen) van het te continueren middel afwegen en dan tot een besluit komen.
