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   35510   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5839   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
    Main objective: The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of aprotinin as compared to placebo, in reducing blood loss and the need for subsequent blood transfusion in subjects with lung or esophageal cancer undergoing pneumonectomy or esophagectomy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Subjects (men or non-pregnant women) 18 years of age and older.
    Subjects requiring protocol specified oncological surgery. Subjects must have histological or cytological confirmation of malignancy in lung or esophagus.
    Documented, signed, dated informed consent obtained prior to any study specific procedures being performed. For subjects in stratum I, consent discussion must include the likelihood of pneumonectomy.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Subjects with previous exposure to aprotinin in the last 6 months. If the subject has undergone cardiac surgery in the previous 6 months, all attempts should be made to ascertain if aprotinin was administered during cardiac surgery. If no records are available, or if the subject received aprotinin, the subject should be excluded.
    • Subjects with a known or suspected allergy to aprotinin.
    • Subjects undergoing laparoscopic resection.
    • Subjects undergoing thoracoscopic resection or simple (single lobe) lobectomy as the planned procedure.
    • Subjects undergoing any palliative operation.
    • Subjects with sepsis.
    • Subjects with mesothelioma.
    • Subjects with a creatinine clearance less than 30 mL/min as calculated by the Cockcroft-Gault formula.
    • Subjects with a history of bleeding diathesis or known coagulation factor deficiency.
    • Subjects with failure of a major organ system or any active significant medical illness that in the opinion of the Investigator is likely to affect the subject’s ability to complete the study or precludes the subject’s participation in the study.
    • Subjects who refuse to receive allogenic blood products for religious or other reasons.
    • Subjects whose preoperative red blood cell volume is so low that a blood transfusion will have to be given perioperatively (pre-operative hematocrit or hemoglobin values < 24 % or < 8 g/dl, respectively).
    • Subjects with a history of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
    • Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or women of childbearing potential in whom the possibility of pregnancy cannot be excluded by a negative serum pregnancy test at screening.
    • Women of childbearing potential who are not using a reliable method of contraception. Methods of contraception that are considered reliable are intrauterine devices (IUDs) containing hormones, birth control pills, hormonal implants/patches, and barrier contraception when used with spermicidal products. The “Rhythm” method is not considered a reliable method of contraception.
    • Use of other antifibrinolytic agents eg, aminocaproic acid or tranexamic acid.
    • Subjects on a chronic anti-coagulant treatment with vitamin K antagonists where it can not be discontinued presurgery for the surgical procedure.
    • Subjects on an investigational drug (i.e. not marketed) in the 30 days prior to screening or during the trial before the 6 week follow-up visit. Subjects involved in trials of marketed cancer therapy medications (including those approved for another indication) or combination with radiotherapy are allowed.
    • Subjects with known drug hypersensitivity, subjects with an allergic diathesis, and subjects who have been treated with aprotinin more than 6 month ago or for whom there is a suspicion of previous treatment with aprotinin, should be included in the study only if the following precautions are undertaken:
    - The test dose, loading dose, and infusion of aprotinin must only be administered
    under careful observation and in the manner indicated in Section 4.5.1.
    - H1 and H2 antagonists must be administered intravenously 15 minutes prior to
    administration of the 1 mL (10000 KIU) test dose of aprotinin.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of aprotinin as compared to placebo, in reducing blood loss and the need for subsequent blood transfusion in subjects undergoing thoracic surgery for lung or esophagectomy. The primary criterion for efficacy is the percent of patients requiring a blood transfusion anytime in the intra-operative or post-operative period (up to the end of follow up visit, i.e 6+/- 2 weeks after surgery). The primary analysis will be based on all patients undergoing protocol defined surgery that are valid for analysis of intent to treat.
    The patients will be stratified according to the type of cancer surgery.
