Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43932   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To assess the biologic activity of Irinotecan single drug treatment - when given on a prolonged schedule - in children with refractory or recurrent hepatoblastoma measured by tumour response rate and rate of early progression.
    Protection of trial subjects
    A new course of therapy should not begin until the absolute neutrophil count (ANC) has recovered to ≥ 1.0 G/L, the platelet count has recovered to ≥ 75 G/L, and treatement related diarrhea or other non-hematological toxicity is fully resolved. If the patient has not recovered after a 2 week delay, consideration should be given to discontinuing the trial. In patients who experience reversible grade 3-4 toxicity , a 20% dose reduction is permitted for the subsequent courses.
    Background therapy
    Management of side effects: 1. Administration of intravenous or subcutaneous atropine should be considered in patients experiencing diaphoresis, abdominal cramping or early diarrhea (dose of atropine 0.01mg/kg, maximum 0.4mg) 2. Late-onset diarrhea (onset more than 2 hours after completion of the Irinotecan infusion) should be treated with Loperamide with a maximum of 0.5mg/kg/day. 3. Administration of Irinotecan should be interrupted if neutropenic fever occurs.These patients should be hospitalised and treated with antibiotics. Subsequent doses of Irinotecan should be reduced. 4: Nausea and vomiting: Pre-medication and treatment with antiemetic agents - preferably the combination of a 5-HT3 blocker and dexamethasone - is recommended.
