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   43881   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7295   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Inherited Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of rare, devastating genetic disorders characterized by structural and mechanical fragility of skin and mucosal membranes, impairing the patient’s quality of life. Generalized JEB is a chronic, life-threatening condition caused by mutations in genes– encoding different chains of laminin 332. All of these mutations hamper hemidesmosome formation, causing blisters. The most frequent, and perhaps most severe, JEB is due to mutations in LAMB3.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Primary objective is to evaluate the safety of Hologene-5 and the procedures associated with the administration of the IMP (infections, lack of engraftment, transplant rejection, immunoreactions etc.) and the patient’s safety measured by occurrence of AEs, TEAEs, AESIs, SAEs at any time during the study.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate Hologene-5 efficacy as clinical and functional restoration of skin integrity.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Signed and dated informed consent prior to any study-related procedures. For pediatric patients
    parental consent must be obtained;
    2. Male and female patients from 1 y.o.;
    3. Clinical and molecular diagnosis of LAMB3-dependent Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa (by
    NGS or Sanger sequencing and/or immunofluorescence);
    4. Detectable residual expression of laminin 332 (and its beta3 chain) by immunofluorescence
    and/or Western Blot analysis;
    5. Presence of blisters or wounds (persistent or recurrent for more than 3 months). Persistence for
    more than 1 month should be considered for minors of 1 year of age;
    6. Patients’ compliance with the study schedule and procedures and willingness to accomplish all
    the required follow up visits.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Contraindications to undergo surgical procedures (i.e. known or suspected hypersensitivity to
    local or general anaesthesia);
    2. Bad general condition (ECOG index >1);
    3. Presence of any skin cancers in the area(s) qualified for Hologene-5 treatment;
    4. Evidence of systemic infections. Patient can be -rescreened after appropriate treatment and recovering;
    5. Female subjects: Pregnant or lactating women and all women with physiologically capable of
    becoming pregnant (i.e. women of childbearing potential [WOCBP]) unless they are willing
    to use highly effective birth control reliable methods such as:
    a. Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine releasing system (IUS);
    b. Oral, intravaginal, transdermal combined estrogen and progestogen containing hormonal contraception or oral, injectable, implantable progestogen only hormonal contraception;
    c. Bilateral tubal occlusion;
    d. Partner vasectomy (provided that partner is the sole sexual partner of the WOCBP trial participant and that the vasectomized partner has received medical assessment of the surgical success);
    e. Sexual abstinence defined as refraining from heterosexual intercourse during the entire period of risk associated with the study treatments.
    Women of non-childbearing potential defined as physiologically incapable of becoming pregnant: premenarchal, post-menopausal (defined as no menses for 12 months without an alternative medical cause) or permanently sterile (hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy and bilateral oophorectomy) are eligible. If indicated, as per Investigator’s request, postmenopausal status may be confirmed by follicle-stimulating hormone levels (according to local laboratory ranges) in women not using hormonal contraception or hormonal replacement therapy;
    A pregnancy test will be performed at screening in all women of childbearing potential and repeated before biopsy treatment and at all visits. A pregnancy test will not be required for postmenopausal women (physiologic menopause defined as “12 consecutive months of amenorrhea”) or women permanently sterilized (e.g. tubal occlusion, hysterectomy or bilateral salpingectomy).
    Contraception has to be maintained until the end of study visit (6 months after the last graft).
    Parental control will be applied for the pediatric population when needed;
    6. Known allergy to any of the constituents of the product or study medication excipients or
    other material required by study protocol (as per Investigator’s Brochure)
    7. Presence of i) systemic diseases, ii) clinically significant or unstable concurrent disease, iii) other concomitant medical conditions, iv) other clinical contraindications to stem cell transplantation, which based on Investigator’s judgment, in consultation with the Sponsor Medical Expert may affect the participation in the study;
    8. Inability to understand the study and to cooperate with the scope of the study (in case of
    children this is required for caregivers);
    9. Previous treatments or participation in clinical trials envisaging the use of cells (including
    bone marrow transplantation, BMT) and/or both in vivo or ex vivo gene therapy products.
