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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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.

    Epoch 1: Randomized withdrawal period
    To assess the efficacy of remibrutinib in CSU participants with a UAS7<16 at Week 52 in the prior core study with respect to time to first of the three events: relapse or study treatment discontinuation due to lack of efficacy or intake of strongly confounding prohibited medication up to Week 24 compared to placebo
    Etapa 1: periodo de retirada aleatorizada
    Evaluar la eficacia de remibrutinib, en los participantes con UCE y un UAS7 (Weekly Urticaria Activity Score) <16 en la semana 52 del estudio principal anterior teniendo en cuenta el tiempo hasta que se produzca uno de estos tres acontecimientos:recaída, discontinuación del tratamiento del estudio
    debido a la falta de eficacia o ingesta de medicación prohibida que cause gran confusión hasta la semana 24 en comparacion con placebo
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the long-term safety and tolerability of remibrutinib
    Evaluar la seguridad y la tolerabilidad a largo plazo de remibrutinib
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    The study includes additional optional biomarker research components. Samples will be stored and analyzed depending on results of other biomarker assessments in this study, the overall study outcome, and/or other studies. Serum samples will be collected for autoantibodies assessment and the assessment of additional exploratory biomarkers, e.g., soluble FcR1. These serum samples may be used to better understand disease heterogeneity and for the identification of efficacy and/or stratification markers. Additionally, the effect of remibrutinib exposure on antibody titers may be assessed. Detailed descriptions of the assays will be included in the bioanalytical data reports. Biomarkers may also include targeted single or multiplex biomarkers panels (autoantibody, protein, peptide or metabolite biomarkers) or hypothesis-free platforms (autoantibody, protein, peptide and metabolite biomarkers).
    El estudio incluye componentes de investigación de los biomarcadores opcionales adicionales. Las muestras se conservarán y se analizarán según los resultados de otras evaluaciones de biomarcadores realizadas en este estudio, el resultado global del estudio o de otros estudios. Se recogerán muestras de suero para la evaluación de los autoanticuerpos y de los biomarcadores exploratorios adicionales, p. ej., FcR1 soluble. Estas muestras de suero podrían utilizarse para comprender mejor la heterogeneidad de la enfermedad e identificar los marcadores de eficacia o de estratificación. Asimismo, se puede evaluar el efecto de la exposición a remibrutinib en los títulos de anticuerpos. Se incluirán descripciones detalladas de las pruebas en los informes de datos bioanalíticos. Los biomarcadores también podrían incluir análisis individuales o multiplexados dirigidos de biomarcadores (autoanticuerpos, proteínas, péptidos o metabolitos) o plataformas que no requieren establecer hipótesis (autoanticuerpos, proteínas, péptidos o metabolitos).

    Should the participant complete this extension study prior to the investigational treatment becoming available in the country of the participant and is in the opinion of the investigator still deriving clinical benefit from remibrutinib, every effort will be made to continue provision of study treatment.
    En caso de que el participante haya completado este estudio de extensión antes de que el tratamiento en investigación esté disponible en su país y que, en opinión del investigador, siga obteniendo un beneficio clínico de remibrutinib, se hará todo lo posible para continuar proporcionándole el tratamiento del estudio.
