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   42886   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.

    Other Secondary Efficacy
    - Further assess the efficacy of apitegromab compared with placebo by evaluating changes in additional motor function outcome measures and changes in HFMSE at other prespecified timepoints in patients 2-12 yrs

    Main Efficacy/Exploratory Subpopulation Combined Secondary (in all randomized patients who receive at least 1 dose of apitegromab):
    - Assess safety and tolerability of apitegromab
    - Characterize the PK of apitegromab
    - Evaluate the PD effects of apitegromab
    - Evaluate the immunogenicity of apitegromab
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    3. Estimated life expectancy >2 years from Screening
    4. Documented diagnosis of 5q SMA
    5. Diagnosed with later-onset SMA (i.e., Type 2 and Type 3 SMA) before receiving an approved SMN upregulator therapy (i.e., either nusinersen or risdiplam). Patients who never had the ability to walk independently will be classified as Type 2. Patients who previously had the ability to walk unaided will be classified as Type 3.
    6. Must be nonambulatory at Screening. Nonambulatory patients must be able to sit independently (sits up straight with head erect for at least 10 seconds; does not use arms or hands to balance body or support position) per WHO motor milestones at Screening
    7. Receiving one background therapy for SMA (i.e., either nusinersen or risdiplam) for the time period specified below and anticipated to remain on that same treatment throughout the trial
    a. If receiving the SMN upregulator therapy nusinersen, must have completed at least 10 months of dosing (i.e., completed the loading regimen and at least 2 maintenance doses) before Screening
    b. If receiving the SMN upregulator therapy risdiplam, must have completed at least 6 months of dosing before Screening
    8. Motor Function Score (HFMSE) ≥10 and ≤45 at the Screening Visit
    9. No physical limitations that would prevent the patient from undergoing motor function outcome measures throughout the trial
    10. Able to receive study drug infusions and provide blood samples through the use of a peripheral IV or a long-term IV access device that the patient has placed for reasons independent from the trial (i.e., for background medical care and not for the purpose of
    receiving apitegromab in the trial), throughout the trial
    11. Able to adhere to the requirements of the protocol, including travel to the trial site and completing all trial procedures and trial visits
    12. Females of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at Screening and agree to use at least 1 acceptable method of contraception throughout the trial and for 20 weeks after the last dose of study drug. Female patients who are expected to have reached reproductive maturity by the end of the trial must agree to adhere to trial-specific contraception requirements.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Received ZOLGENSMA® (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi) at any time
    2. Previous treatment with apitegromab
    3. Prior history of severe hypersensitivity reaction or intolerance to SMN upregulator therapies
    4. Prior history of a hypersensitivity reaction to a mAb or recombinant protein bearing an Fc domain (e.g., a soluble receptor-Fc fusion protein), apitegromab, or excipients of apitegromab
    5. Require invasive ventilation or tracheostomy
    6. Nutritional status that was not stable over the past 6 months and is not anticipated to be stable throughout the trial or medical necessity for a gastric/nasogastric feeding tube, where the majority of feeds are given by this route, as assessed by the Investigator
    7. Major orthopedic or other interventional procedure, including spine or hip surgery, considered to have the potential to substantially limit the ability of the patient to be evaluated on any motor function outcome measures, within 6 months before Screening or anticipated during the trial
    8. Treatment with other investigational drugs in a clinical trial within 3 months or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer, before Screening
    9. Use of valproic acid or hydroxyurea within 90 days before Screening
    10. Use of therapies with potentially significant muscle effects (e.g., androgens, insulin like growth factor, growth hormone, systemic beta-agonist, botulinum toxin, or muscle relaxants or muscle-enhancing supplements) or potentially significant neuromuscular effects (e.g., acetylcholinesterase inhibitors) other than approved SMN upregulator therapy within 60 days before Screening
    11. Use of systemic corticosteroids within 60 days before Screening. Inhaled or topical steroids are allowed.
    12. Any acute or comorbid condition interfering with the well-being of the patient within 7 days before Screening, including active systemic infection, the need for acute treatment, or inpatient observation due to any reason
    13. Severe contractures (National Cancer Institute [NCI] Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE]) or scoliosis (general guideline for Grade 3) at Screening. Based on clinical judgment, any contractures or scoliosis present must be stable over the past 6 months, anticipated to be stable throughout the trial, and not prevent the patient from being evaluated on any motor function outcome measures throughout the trial.
    14. Use of chronic daytime noninvasive ventilatory support for >16 hours daily in the 2 weeks before dosing, or anticipated to regularly receive such daytime ventilator support chronically throughout the trial
    15. Pregnant or breastfeeding
    16. Any other condition or clinically significant laboratory result or ECG value that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may compromise safety or compliance, would preclude the patient from successful completion of the trial, or interfere with the interpretation of the results
