Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   36373   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5993   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To compare objective response (OR) rates (complete response [CR] + partial response [PR]), duration of response (DoR), clinical benefit rate (CB), overall survival (OS), tolerability, quality of life (QoL), and health care resource use between the patients described above on fulvestrant and those on exemestane.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Histological/cytological confirmation of breast cancer.

    2. Objective evidence of recurrence or progression of disease, which is not considered amenable to curative treatment.

    - Age ≥ 60 years
    - Age ≥ 45 years with amenorrhea for ≥12 months with an intact uterus
    - Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels in post menopausal range (utilizing ranges from the testing laboratory facility).

    - Having undergone a bilateral oophorectomy

    4. Progression while receiving a non-steroidal AI for locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer or recurrence while receiving a non-steroidal AI as adjuvant therapy or within 6 months of treatment discontinuation.

    5. Evidence of hormone sensitivity either ER+ and/or PgR+.

    6. Patients fulfilling one of the following criteria are eligible to participate in this study:
    - Patients with measurable disease as per RECIST criteria. This is defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded) as ≥ 20 mm with conventional technique or as ≥ 10 mm with spiral CT scan or MRI.
    - Patients with bone lesions, lytic or mixed (lytic + sclerotic), in the absence of measurable disease as defined by RECIST criteria.

    7. Performance status of 0, 1, or 2.

    8. Written informed consent to participate in the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    - Platelets < 100 x 10e9 /L
    - International normalized ratio (INR) > 1.6
    - Total bilirubin > 1.5 x ULRR
    - ALT or AST >2.5 x ULRR if no demonstrable liver metastases or
    >5 x ULRR in presence of liver metastases
    No more than 3 retests within screening period

    7. Risk (in the investigator’s opinion) of transmitting human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B or C, through blood or other bodily fluids.

    8. History of:
    - bleeding diathesis (ie, disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC], clotting factor deficiency) or
    - long-term anticoagulant therapy (other than antiplatelet therapy).

    9. Non-approved/experimental drug treatment within previous 4 weeks before randomization.

    10. Any severe concomitant condition which makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the study or which would jeopardize compliance with the protocol eg, severe renal or hepatic impairment or currently unstable or uncompensated respiratory or cardiac conditions.

    11. History of hypersensitivity to active or inactive excipients of fulvestrant and/or exemestane (ie castor oil or Mannitol).

    12. Presence of life-threatening metastatic visceral disease, defined as extensive hepatic involvement, or any degree of brain or leptomeningeal involvement (past or present), or symptomatic pulmonary lymphangitic spread. Subjects with discrete pulmonary parenchymal metastases are eligible, provided their respiratory function is not compromised as a result of disease.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of TTP is defined as the time from randomization to the time of the earliest evidence of disease progression or death from any cause. Patients who have not progressed or died at the time of the data cut-off date or who have been lost to follow-up will be right-censored at the date of their last disease assessment. Patients will be considered lost to follow-up if they have missed visits and there is no follow-up available for more than 6 months.
