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   34947   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5690   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To compare the overall survival associated with vorinostat plus best supportive care versus that associated with placebo plus best supportive care for the treatment of patients with advanced malignant pleural mesothelioma who have failed at least one prior chemotherapy regimen, and to determine the overall safety and toxicity of vorinostat in this population.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    E.2.2 Secondary objectives:
    To compare between vorinostat plus best supportive care versus placebo plus best supportive care for the treatment of patients with advanced malignant mesothelioma who have failed at least one prior chemotherapy regimen with respect to:
    a. Progression-free-survival
    b. Overall objective response rate
    c. Dyspnea score of lung cancer symptom scale modified for mesothelioma (LCSS-Meso) at Week 12; and
    d. Percent change from baseline in forced vital capacity (FVC) at Week 12.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    a. Patient must have a histologically and/or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of epithelial, sarcomatoid, or mixed histology malignant pleural mesothelioma and:
     In countries where pemetrexed is an approved mesothelioma treatment, the patient's mesothelioma has progressed or relapsed following treatment with at least one prior chemotherapy regimen with pemetrexed and either cisplatin or carboplatin.
    OR
     In countries where pemetrexed is not approved for mesothelioma, the patient's mesothelioma has progressed or relapsed following treatment with at least one prior chemotherapy regimen.
    OR
     In the opinion of the investigator, pemetrexed is not the preferred therapy for the patient, and the patient's mesothelioma has progressed or relapsed following treatment with at least one prior chemotherapy regimen.
    NOTE: If patient was not previously treated with pemetrexed, please document reason in the patients study record, i.e.: not approved, contraindicated for patient, reimbursement not available, or other reason to be specified.
    b. Patient must have received no more than 2 prior systemic therapy regimens.
    c. Patient must have an area of pleural rind thickness measured by meso-modified RECIST [10] that is at least 1.0 cm in line-length on a spiral computerized tomography (CT) scan.
    e. Patient has a Karnofsky performance scale status of ≥70 (see Appendix 1).
    j. Patient must have completed previous chemotherapy or radiotherapy at least 4 weeks before drug administration (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) and have recovered from any treatment-related toxicities (National Cancer Institute [NCI] Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] Grade ≤1 or recovered to pre-treatment levels).


    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    a. Patient had prior treatment with an HDAC inhibitor (e.g., Depsipeptide, MS 275, LAQ-824, PXD-101, and valproic acid). Patients who have received such agents for other indications, e.g. epilepsy, may enroll on vorinostat trials after a 30-day washout period.
    b. Patient has an active infection for which the patient received intravenous antibiotic, antiviral, or antifungal medications within 2 weeks prior to the start of study drug.
    c. Patients with a "currently active" second malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers and carcinoma in situ of the cervix are not eligible. Patients are not considered to have a "currently active" second malignancy if they have completed therapy for the second malignancy and are disease free from prior malignancies for >5 years.
    d. Patient has uncontrolled brain metastases, e.g., previously treated brain metastases that is not stable in the last 6 weeks.
    e. Patient has a known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or HIV-related malignancy.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is overall survival, defined as the time from randomization to the time of death from any cause.
    The number of patients with CTCAE Grade 3/4 will be used for the primary safety analysis.
