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   36401   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5997   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.

    *Use of more than one agent in the adjuvant setting is acceptable.
    **Advanced breast cancer: Metastatic disease or locally advanced disease which is not amenable to treatment with curative intent.
    5. Patients with measurable disease as per RECIST criteria. This is defined as at least one targeted lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded) as ≥ 20 mm with conventional technique or as ≥ 10 mm with spiral CT scan.
    6. Postmenopausal women are defined as those women fulfilling any 1 of the following criteria:
    · Age ≥ 60 years.
    · Having undergone a bilateral oophorectomy.
    · Age < 60 years with an intact uterus and at least one intact ovary, amenorrhoea ≥12 months continuous AND
    - If they received systemic cytotoxic anti-cancer therapy
    - The last dose must have been > 12 months prior to randomisation or
    - Age > 45 years
    - If they were on an LHRH analogue the last depot must have been administered > 4 months prior to randomisation and FSH and oestradiol levels must be in the post menopausal range.
    · For patients with at least one intact ovary and prior history of hysterectomy: FSH and oestradiol levels must be in the post menopausal range AND
    - If they received systemic cytotoxic anti-cancer therapy
    - The last dose must have been > 12 months prior to randomisation or
    - Age > 45 years
    - If they were on an LHRH analogue the last depot must have been administered > 4 months prior to randomisation.
    7. WHO performance status 0, 1 or 2.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Presence of life-threatening metastatic visceral disease, defined as extensive hepatic involvement, or any degree of brain or leptomeningeal involvement (past or present), or symptomatic pulmonary lymphangitic spread. Patients with discrete pulmonary parenchymal metastases are eligible, provided their respiratory function is not clinically and significantly compromised as a result of disease.
    2. More than one previous regimen of systemic anti-cancer therapy other than endocrine treatment for advanced disease.
    Note: Patients previously treated with one regimen of systemic anti-cancer therapy other than endocrine treatment for advanced disease are allowed as long as their last treatment is an anti-oestrogen or an aromatase inhibitor
    3. More than one previous regimen of endocrine therapy for advanced disease.
    Note: Oophorectomy, ovarian ablation, or LH-RH analogue therapy do not count as endocrine treatments in this context and also do not render the patient ineligible for this study.
    4. Extensive radiation therapy within 4 weeks prior to randomisation (greater than or equal to 30% marrow or whole pelvis or spine) or systemic anti-cancer therapy other than endocrine treatment within 4 weeks prior to randomisation, or radiolabelled strontium (or other radiopharmaceuticals) within 12 weeks prior to randomisation.
    5. Treatment with a non-approved or experimental drug except the post-manufacturing/marketing clinical study drug within 4 weeks before randomisation.
    6. Current or prior malignancy within previous 3 years (other than breast cancer or adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or in-situ carcinoma of the cervix).
    7. Any of the following laboratory values within 3 weeks prior to randomisation:
    · Platelets < 100 ´ 109 / L
    · Total bilirubin > 1.5 ´ ULRR*
    · ALT or AST > 2.5 ´ ULRR if no demonstrable liver metastases or > 5 ´ ULRR in presence of liver metastases
    * Patients with confirmed Gilbert’s syndrome may be included in the study
    8. History of:
    · bleeding diathesis (i.e., disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC], clotting factor deficiency), or
    · long-term anticoagulant therapy (other than antiplatelet therapy and low dose warfarin – see Section 3.7).
    9. History of hypersensitivity to active or inactive excipients of fulvestrant and/or castor oil.
    10. Any severe concomitant condition which makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the trial or which would jeopardize compliance with the trial protocol e.g., uncontrolled cardiac disease or uncontrolled diabetes mellitus.
    11. Involvement in the planning and conduct of the study (applies to both AstraZeneca staff or staff at the study site)
    12. Previous enrolment or randomisation of treatment in the present study.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Recruitment is expected to be completed by 15th October 2007.
    The study will be analysed when all patients, except withdrawals, have been followed up for at least 24 weeks. The data will be reviewed in order to allow the continued supply of randomised treatment to those patients receiving clinical benefit.
    Since in this study the study treatment will be continued until the progression of disease, the occurrence of an intolerable AE, its discontinuation requested by a subject or required for other reasons, or the completion of the whole study, it is difficult to clearly set the time of study completion. For this reason, the completion time has been set at April 2008
