Effects of Ciclesonide MDI 50mg/Day and 200mg/Day (Ex-Valve) Once-Daily on Growth in Children With Mild Persistent Asthma

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Sanofi Identifier:
First received: December 22, 2005
Last updated: December 27, 2005
Last verified: December 2005

The primary objective is to determine if CIC 50 mg/day or 200 mg/day (ex-valve) administered once daily in the morning is non-inferior to placebo with respect to growth velocity in children with mild persistent asthma following a 12-month treatment period

The secondary objective is to investigate changes in growth in terms of bone age (wrist X-ray), and maintenance of asthma control and safety with ciclesonide

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: ciclesonide
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double-Blind
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III, Multicenter, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Non-Inferiority Study Assessing the Effects of Ciclesonide Metered Dose Inhaler 50 Mg/Day and 200 Mg/Day (Ex-Valve) Administered Once Daily on Growth in Children With Mild Persistent Asthma

Further study details as provided by Sanofi:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Subject’s height measured w. standard stadiometry techniques. 4 acceptable serial measurements taken at each visit on same equipment by a qualified technician.Median of 4 measurements used the subject’s stadiometer height data

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Blinded assessment of bone age according to Greulich and Pyle radiographic atlas with wrist X-rays. Subjects monitored for AEs and any events occurring during study. Pulmonary function tests performed to measure FEV1 in liters and % of predicted FEV1

Estimated Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: December 2000
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2004

Ages Eligible for Study:   5 Years to 102 Months   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Females between 5 and 7.5 years and male between 5 and 8.5 years of age with normal heights, a history of mild persistent asthma for at least 3 months prior to visit 1, a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of ³80% of predicted following at least a 4-hour albuterol withhold, and treated with non-corticosteroid asthma medications on an as-needed or daily basis, or with low doses of inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs) for at least one month prior to Visit 1. Subjects were to be no greater than Stage 1 in the Tanner classification of sexual maturity, and they had to be able to demonstrate effective use of the MDI devices and perform reproducible pulmonary function test.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with a history of life-threatening asthma, severe respiratory impairment, history of abnormal growth, concurrent disease or condition which may substantially affect growth, previous requirement for daily or alternate day oral corticosteroids (OCS) treatment for ³60 days within the 2 years of Visit 3 and/or any use of OCS within 30 days prior to Visit 1 or during the run-in period, previous treatment with moderate or high doses of inhaled corticosteroid during the 30 days prior to Visit 1
