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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Male adults with Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer who have progressed, as evidenced by PSA progression or progression of measurable disease, after at least 1 prior chemotherapy regimen.

    E.1.2Version 8.0
    E.1.2Level LLT
    E.1.2Classification code 10062904
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the efficacy of YM155 based on the percentage of subjects that obtain a PSA response.
    PSA response is defined as a ≥ 50% reduction in PSA that is confirmed by a second PSA value 3 weeks apart. The reference PSA value for these decreases is the baseline PSA value.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To measure the percentage of PSA decrease.
    • To measure duration of PSA response.
    • To measure the time to PSA progression.
    • To evaluate overall survival (OS).
    • To measure objective tumor response (Complete Response [CR] and Partial Response [PR]) in subjects with measurable disease.
    • To measure change in pain based upon Memorial Pain Scale.
    • To evaluate progression free survival (PFS).
    • To evaluate safety based on clinical laboratory assessments, 12-lead ECGs, vital signs, physical examinations, and adverse events.

    Additional Exploratory Objectives:
    • To assess population pharmacokinetics of YM155.
    • Alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AAG) will be obtained on all subjects at baseline and at
    the Final Visit/Early Termination in order to evaluate the level of AAG in relation to
    treatment outcomes and survival.
