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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System

    Primary: Maximal tolerable dose

    End point title
    Maximal tolerable dose [1]
    End point description
    Toxicity was graded according to NCI Common Toxicity Criteria version 2.0. DLT was reached if grade 3 toxicity was observed. Cohorts of three to six patients were entered at each dose level and each cohort was evaluated for the entire combined treatment course before dose escalation was allowed. If one patient at a given dose level developed DLT, three additional patients were planned to be treated at that dose level. If zero or one out of three/six patients developed DLT the dose was escalated with 10 mg/m 2/week. If two or more patients out of three or six developed DLT the MTD was reached.

    Notes
    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: Maximal tolerable dose cannot be statistically analyzed. Toxicity was graded according to NCI Common Toxicity Criteria version 2.0. DLT was reached if grade 3 toxicity was observed. Cohorts of three to six patients were entered at each dose level and each cohort was evaluated for the entire combined treatment course before dose escalation was allowed. See also publication.
