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   37217   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6123   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess whether chemotherapy with carboplatin is a safe and effective treatment for women with metastatic breast cancer who are BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 carriers. The response to treatment with carboplatin will be compared to the reponse to the current standard treatment, docetaxel.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To determine whether treatment with carboplatin prolongs the time to progression of metastatic breast cancer in women who are BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 carriers.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    ·Histologically confirmed measurable metastatic breast cancer in known BRCA1 or 2 mutation carriers, where chemotherapy is the treatment of choice
    ·Patients with stable, treated brain metastases will be eligible providing informed consent can be given and that other sites of measurable disease are present
    ·Patients with bone metastases currently receiving bisphosphonates for palliation will be eligible providing other sites of measurable disease are present
    ·WHO Performance Status 0, 1 or 2
    ·Normal haematology, biochemical indices (FBC, U & E’s)
    ·LFT’s = Normal bilirubin, AST and/or ALT <or=3 x ULN and Alk Phos <or=5 x ULN (n.b. Alk Phos <or=2.5 x ULN if AST and/or ALT >or=1.5 x ULN)
    ·Normal renal function

    ·Previous treatment with a platinum chemotherapy drug
    ·LFT’s = Abnormal bilirubin (> ULN), AST and/or ALT >3 x ULN and Alk Phos >5 x ULN (n.b. Alk Phos >2.5 x ULN if AST and/or ALT >1.5 x ULN)
    ·Patients with a life expectancy of less than 3 months
    ·Previous malignancies other than adequately treated in situ carcinoma of the uterine cervix or basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, unless there has been a disease free interval of at least 10 years
    ·Patients with bone limited disease or suitable for endocrine therapy alone
    ·Other serious uncontrolled medical conditions or concurrent medical illness likely to compromise life expectancy and/or the completion of trial therapy
    ·Pregnant, lactating or potentially childbearing women not using adequate contraception (documentation of a negative serum HCG pregnancy test should be available for pre-menopausal women with intact reproductive organs, or women less than two years after the menopause. Fertile women and their partners must use a medically acceptable contraceptive throughout the treatment period and for six months following cessation of treatment. Subjects must be made aware before entering the trial of the risk in becoming pregnant).
    n.b. Prior exposure to taxanes does not exclude patients providing that there is >or=12 months between previous exposure and trial entry.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary: Response and toxicity
    Response will be evaluated after 3 and 6 cycles of chemotherapy using RECIST criteria, with appropriate clinical assessment and radiological investigations. There will be a ‘response evaluation committee’ to independently assess response. Toxicity will be assessed throughout the treatment period using the NCI CTCAE v3.0 12/12/03
