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   42891   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7066   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. The patient must be 18 years of age or older.
    2. The patient must be able to comply with scheduled study assessments and in-person visits and must have an ECOG performance status of 0, 1, 2 or 3.
    3. The patient must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.

    8. The patient’s advanced disease must be refractory, meaning that the patient must have progressed on or after receiving, or was unable to tolerate, at least 1 anti-cancer treatment regimen containing 1 or more anti-cancer agents for their advanced disease, or the patient must have documented refusal of chemotherapy treatment for advanced disease.
    9. The patient must meet the requirement of a minimum period of 2 weeks between the last dose of radiotherapy or chemotherapy or 4 weeks between the last dose of an investigational anti-cancer product, and the first dose of the study drug.
    10. The patient must have fully recovered or reached a stable state of symptomatology from any previous treatment-related toxicity.
    11. The patient must have at least 1 target tumour that can be designated a principal target tumour.
    12. The patient must have adequate hepatic function [alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤2.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN) and bilirubin level ≤1.5 × ULN].
    13. The patient must have adequate renal function (serum creatinine < 1.5 × ULN).
    14. The patient must have the following hematological values: granulocytes ≥1500/μL, platelets ≥75 000/μL and hemoglobin >8 g/dL.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. The patient’s locoregional disease is predominantly composed of tumours that do not meet the criteria of a target tumour.
    2. The patient has clinically significant distant metastases, including brain metastases.
    3. The patient is a candidate for either curative surgical resection or curative intent radiotherapy, chemo-radiotherapy or chemotherapy for their advanced disease.
    4. The patient has nasopharyngeal SCCHN.
    5. The patient has concurrent or documented history of any 1 of the following: known Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, hepatitis C or hepatitis B.
    6. The patient has clinically significant renal or hepatic disease.
    7. The patient has Grade 3, or higher, bleeding from any tumour.
    8. The patient is pregnant or lactating.
    9. The patient requires regular use of therapy that significantly alters coagulation parameters to values that exceed the ULN and are unable to safely discontinue that therapy prior to randomization.
    10. The patient has any concomitant condition that, in the Investigator’s opinion, would make the patient inappropriate for study.
    11. The patient is currently enrolled in a clinical trial for another investigational therapy.
