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   35906   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5892   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 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 I
    n 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).

    a. Any patient who was previously enrolled on MK-0683 P014 who did not experience progression of malignant pleural mesothelioma while
    receiving treatment with vorinostat will have the option to enroll in a
    Treatment Extension Phase of the study. This option will be available if
    the investigator believes that the patient may benefit from treatment with open label vorinostat to treat their malignant pleural mesothelioma.
    Investigators will have up to three months from the time that they are
    notified of the final study results to enroll patients into the Treatment
    Extension Phase.
    The following patients may enroll in the Treatment Extension Phase
     patients who are receiving treatment with vorinostat and have not
    experienced progression of mesothelioma
     patients who were randomized to the placebo arm and meet the
    eligibility criteria for the Treatment Extension Phase outlined in
    Section I. D. 3
     for those patients assigned to vorinostat who have discontinued study therapy for reasons other than progression of mesothelioma, it is left to the investigator's discretion as to whether the potential benefit
    outweighs potential risks associated with using vorinostat
    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.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    As the data from the Treatment Extension Phase of the protocol will be only descriptive tables, no spend of alpha from the primary or secondary analyses will be required.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Safety data in the form of adverse experiences, serious adverse experiences, concomitant medications, study medication, central laboratory assessments, and survival follow-up will be collected for safety follow-up on patients enrolled in the Treatment Extension Phase of the protocol. Descriptive tables that summarize the number and percentage of patients that experience adverse experiences as categorized in the NCI CTCAE version 3.0 will be generated for those patients enrolled in the Treatment Extension Phase of this protocol as part of routine safety monitoring.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Safety data in the form of adverse experiences, serious adverse experiences, concomitant medications, study medication, central laboratory assessments, and survival follow-up will be collected for safety follow-up on patients enrolled in the Treatment Extension Phase of the protocol. Descriptive tables that summarize the number and percentage of patients that experience adverse experiences as categorized in the NCI CTCAE version 3.0 will be generated for those patients enrolled in the Treatment Extension Phase of this protocol as part of routine safety monitoring.
