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   36087   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5931   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    1. Pharmacogenomics – Biomarker discovery
    (optional study module), Attachment 4 to study protocol, dated 14.04.2005

    The evaluation of pharmagenomics (here DNA methylation) is an optional module of this study. From each participating patient, a 12-mL blood sample will be taken prior to first dose of study medication.

    The objective of the biomarker discovery program within the framework of this clinical trial is to assess promoter methylation in selected genes potentially involved in the pathogenesis of NSCLC and search for correlation between the pattern of methylated sequences and tumor response.

    2. Pharmacokinetics (optional substudy), Attachment 5 to stuy protocol, dated 18.07.2006 - Further investigation of the pharmacokinetic profile of ZK 219477 when infused over 30 minutes and over 3 hours

    The evaluation of pharmakokinetic is an optional module of this study. For each patient, a total of 13 respectively 15 blood samples is scheduled to be collected per course for pharmacokinetic analysis.

    3. Pharmacogenomics – Biomarker Analysis (optional study module), Attachment 6 to study protocol, dated 20.07.2007

    The objective of the biomarker discovery program within the framework of this clinical trial is to search for correlation between tumor-specific pharmacogenomic and pharmacogenetic characteristics and clinical response to treatment with ZK 219477.
    In particular, these exploratory analyses aim to detect:
    1. Associations between gene expression in tumor tissue and drug response to find predictors or indicators of response to the study medication, ZK 219477.
    2. Associations between protein biomarkers in blood and drug response to find predictors or indicators of response to the study medication, ZK 219477.
    3. Association between the mutational status of the p53 gene in tumor tissue and drug response to find predictors or indicators of response to the study medication, ZK 219477.
    4. Associations between methylated tumor DNA markers in blood and drug response to find predictors or indicators of response to the study medication, ZK 219477.

    The procedures from attachment 4 are integrated in the new attachment 6. Patients participating in the biomarker substudy described in attachment 6 will not have to sign the informed consent form for the biomarker substudy procedures described in attachment 4.
    Patients can still participate in the biomarker substudy as described in attachment 4, if they are not willing to make their tissue samples available.
