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   43724   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7255   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.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Participant must be 12 to 80 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent/assent.

    2. Weight ≥ 40 kg at Visit 1

    3. Established diagnosis of EoE with a previous EGD and esophageal
    biopsy confirming a diagnosis of EoE.

    4. Participants who have symptomatic EoE as defined by a history of on
    average at least 2 episodes of dysphagia (any severity of food going
    down slowly or being stuck in the throat) per week in the 4 weeks prior
    to Visit 1.

    5. Must remain on a stabilized diet for at least 8 weeks prior to Visit 1
    and during the course of the study (stable diet is defined as no initiation
    of single or multiple elimination diets or reintroduction of previously
    eliminated food groups).

    6. May be on any background medication for EoE, for example PPI
    and/or STC, during the course of the study, as long as background
    medications have been stable for at least 8 weeks prior to the
    screening/run-in period (Visit 1) and there is agreement not to change
    background medication or dosage unless medically indicated, during the
    screening/run-in and treatment period.

    7. Participants currently leukotriene inhibitors and/or steroid treatments
    for asthma or allergies that are inhaled or administered intranasally,
    must report a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to the
    screening/run-in period (Visit 1).

    8. If a medication for EoE (including PPI and/or STC) is discontinued
    prior to the screening/run-in, there should be a washout period of at
    least 8 weeks prior to Visit 1. Discontinuation of any marketed biologic
    (monoclonal or polyclonal antibody) should have a washout period of 4
    months or 5 half-lives prior to Visit 1, whichever is longer.

    2.Esophageal stricture that prevents the easy passage of a standard endoscope or any critical esophageal stricture that requires dilation at screening.
    3. Use of a feeding tube, or having a pattern of not eating solid food ≥ 3 days of the week. Solid food is defined as food that requires chewing before swallowing.
    4. Hypereosinophilic syndrome.
    5. EGPA vasculitis
    6. Esophageal dilation performed within 8 weeks prior to screening.
