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   37768   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6190   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint is overall survival (OS) of the sorafenib in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin group versus placebo in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel group. All randomized patients (ITT Population) will be included in the primary analyses. One-sided alpha of 0.025 will be used for the OS analysis.
    Overall survival is defined as the time from randomization to death due to any cause. Patients alive at the time of analysis will be censored at their last date of follow-up.
    In the analysis of OS, the two treatment groups (sorafenib and placebo) will be compared using a one-sided log-rank test with an overall alpha of 0.025 stratified by the same stratification factors as randomization: ECOG PS (0 vs. 1), histology (squamous vs. non-squamous), Stage ( IIIB with pleural or pericardial effusion vs. Stage IV), and region (core [consisting of North America, Northern/Western Europe and Australia] vs. non-core [consisting of South America, Eastern Europe and Asia-Pacific]). Kaplan-Meier estimates and survival curves will also be presented for each treatment group.
