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   43890   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7298   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective is to show better disease control in patients with CRSwNP who have received both biologic treatment and surgery compared with patients who have received biologic treatment only at the 6-month follow-up. Another objective is to examine the differences in CRS control after 12 months, as indicated by SNOT22, between the two different treatments (biologic/surgery vs. biologics only) to examine the sustainability of combined treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    not applicable
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Patients ≥ 18 years old at the time of signed informed consent (no upper limit)
    • Patients who are referred to the outpatient clinic for the following reasons:
    o Doctor’s diagnosis of CRS
    • NPS ≥ 2+2 out of a score of 8 (max)
    • Severity measured as an SNOT22 score > 35
    • One FESS surgery in general anaesthesia performed prior to inclusion (no time limitations)
    • No course of systemic steroids within the last 3 months, whereas a daily low dose is allowed
    • Possible doctor’s diagnosis of asthma
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Patients who, because of language barriers, are not able to understand written information and, thus, are not able to answer questionnaires
    • Patients who currently receive biologics for any other disease
    • Patients who have previously or currently received biologics for CRS or asthma
    • Patients who are not able to give informed consent (i.e., patients who are permanently incapable)
    • Patients who meet ≥1 of the following:
    o Malignant lung disease
    o Cardiac disease of clinical importance
    o Current pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as planning to be pregnant in the near future
    o Unwillingness to have FESS performed
    • Patients needing FESS or systemic steroids (OCS) during the study period will be excluded after an unscheduled visit (last observation carried forward (LOCF))
    • Patients who are not eligible because of the investigator’s judgement
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    A significant change in HRQL using SNOT22 after a 6-month follow-up
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    6 months
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    To evaluate variables such as NPS, NCS, sense of smell, sleep, middle ear pressure, exacerbation, use of extra steroids, ACQ and inflammatory biomarkers in blood, sputum and polyp tissue, after 12 months, as well as SNOT22 and VAS differences will be examined in patients from both treatment arms, and the differences between the two treatments will be analysed. The need for surgical intervention or systemic steroids in the FESS group versus the non-FESS group between 6 and 12 months will be analysed. A change in adherence to the baseline treatment after 12 months of biologic drug treatment will be measured. A change in the CT scan of the sinuses after 12 months of biologic treatment (score based) using the Lund Mackay scale (0 to 24, higher = worse) compared with CT scan prior to treatment will be checked.
