  • 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   36818   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6079   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
    To assess the feasibility of using bevacizumab plus cisplatingemcitabine
    or carboplatin-paclitaxel in patients with squamous
    NSCLC considered to be at major risk for pulmonary haemorrhage*,
    when using preventive measures** to reduce the risk of pulmonary
    *Patients considered at major risk of pulmonary haemorrhage, when
    treated with bevacizumab, are defined as presenting with central tumours
    of any size or peripheral tumours ≥ 2 cm in their longest diameter that
    have not been previously irradiated.
    **The preventive measures to reduce the risk of pulmonary haemorrhage
    in patients treated with bevacizumab are:
    - exclusion of patients with history of ≥ grade 2 haemoptysis (bright red
    blood of at least ½ teaspoon) in the 3 months prior to inclusion in the
    - a short course of radiation therapy 3 weeks prior to starting
    - delay of the first administration of bevacizumab to the second cycle of
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess
    o Overall safety and tolerability
    o Best Overall Response (OR)
    o Duration of Response (DR)
    o Progression Free Survival (PFS)
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT

    5. Written informed consent obtained prior to any study specific
    6. Histologically or cytologically documented squamous NSCLC.
    Mixed tumours should be categorised according to the predominant
    cell type and the squamous cells must represent 50% or more of the
    cell components. Sputum cytology alone is not acceptable.
    Representative samples must be sent to Roche for central review.
    Results of the review are not required prior to inclusion and treatment
    of the patient.
    7. Stage IIIB with malignant pleural or pericardial effusion (i.e. patients
    who are not candidates for radical combined modality therapy or high-dose consolidation radiotherapy) OR stage IV (metastatic) OR
    recurrent disease.
    8. Patients who are candidates for treatment with platinum-based
    chemotherapy as first line chemotherapy for their disease.
    9. Patients in whom delaying the start of platinum-based chemotherapy
    by 3 weeks is acceptable in order to allow the administration of
    thoracic radiotherapy to lesions at risk of haemorrhage, when treated
    with bevacizumab. This criterion is applicable to the study population
    10.Measurable or evaluable disease. Baseline chest CT scans and any
    other chest imaging used for the assessment of lung lesions must be
    sent to Roche for central review. Results of the review do not have to
    be awaited for inclusion and treatment of the patients.
    11. Bronchoscopic assessment available at time of inclusion into the
    study to map and characterise endobronchial disease. Bronchoscopy
    to be performed within 2 months prior to inclusion into the study.
    12.Adequate renal function
    - Serum creatinine ≤ 1.25 x ULN or calculated creatinine
    clearance ≥ 50 mL/min
    - Urine dipstick of proteinuria <2+. Patients discovered to have
    ≥ 2+ proteinuria on dipstick urinalysis at baseline, should
    undergo a 24-hour urine collection and must demonstrate ≤ 1 g
    of protein/24 hr.
    13.Adequate haematological function:
    - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L
    - Platelet count ≥ 100 x 109/L
    - Haemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL (may be transfused to maintain or exceed
    this level)
    - Prothrombin International Normalized Ratio (PT_INR) < 1.5;
    aPTT ≤1.5 x ULN.
    14.Adequate liver function
    - Total bilirubin < 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
    - AST, ALT < 2.5 x ULN in patients without liver metastases; < 5
    x ULN in patients with liver metastases.
    15. Free of co-morbid conditions, which could affect compliance with the
    protocol or the interpretation of results.
    16. If female, should not be pregnant or breast-feeding. Women with an
    intact uterus (unless amenorrhoeic for the last 24 months) must have a
    negative serum pregnancy test within 28 days prior to inclusion into
    the study. If a serum pregnancy test is not performed within 7 days
    prior to the first dose of bevacizumab, a confirmatory urine test
    (within 7 days prior to the first dose of bevacizumab) is required.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Mixed, non-small cell and small cell tumours or mixed
    adenosquamous carcinomas with a predominant non-squamous
    non-small or small cell component.
    2. Other primary tumours within the last 5 years before inclusion, except
    for adequately controlled limited basal cell, squamous carcinoma of
    the skin or carcinoma in situ of the cervix.
    3. Prior systemic anti-tumour therapy (chemotherapy, monoclonal
    antibody therapy or tyrosine kinase inhibitors).
    4. Prior radiotherapy for the treatment of the patients’s current stage of
    disease (stage IIIB with pleural or pericardial effusion, stage IV or recurrent disease). Patients who have received radiotherapy
    to the chest as a part of the treatment of an earlier stage of disease are
    eligible if the last fraction of radiotherapy was administered at least
    4 weeks prior to inclusion into the study. Palliative radiotherapy for
    the relief of metastatic bone pain allowed prior to inclusion
    into the study, providing
    - No more than 30% of marrow-bearing bone has been irradiated
    - The last fraction of radiotherapy has been administered within
    4 weeks prior to inclusion.
    5. Patients at high-risk for radiation pneumonitis (high V20 values) or
    unable to tolerate radiotherapy, as per investigator’s assessment. This
    criterion applies to the study population only.
    6. History of ≥ grade 2 haemoptysis (bright red blood of at least
    ½ teaspoon) in the 3 months prior to inclusion into the study.
    7. Evidence of tumour invading major blood vessels on imaging. The
    investigator or the local radiologist must exclude evidence of tumor
    that is fully contiguous with, surrounding, or extending into the lumen
    of a major blood vessel (e.g. pulmonary artery or superior vena cava).
    8. History or evidence of inherited bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy
    with the risk of bleeding.
    9. Current or recent (within 10 days of first dose of bevacizumab) use of

    therapeutic (as opposed to prophylactic) purposes. At inclusion, exploratory population only.
    11. Increased risk of gastrointestinal perforation, hypertension, wound
    healing complications, thromboembolism or haemorrhage (for
    thromboembolism and haemorrhage increased risk relates to risks
    other than NSCLC).
    12. Clinically serious (as judged by the investigator) non-healing wound,
    peptic ulcer or bone fracture.
    13. History of abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal perforation, or
    intra-abdominal abscess within 6 months of inclusion.

    MRI of the brain must be performed within 4 weeks prior to inclusion
    into the study.
    15.History or evidence, upon physical/neurological examination, of CNS
    disease unrelated to cancer, unless adequately treated with standard
    medical therapy.

    within 28 days prior to inclusion, or anticipation of the need for major
    surgery during the course of the study treatment.
    17.Minor surgical procedures within 24 hours prior to inclusion.
    18. Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic > 150 mmHg and/or

    21. Current or recent (within 30 days of inclusion) treatment with
    another investigational drug or participation in another investigational
    22. Evidence of any other disease, metabolic or psychological
    dysfunction, physical examination finding or clinical laboratory
    finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that
    contraindicates the use of an investigational drug, or that may affect
    patient compliance with study routines, or places the patient at high
    risk from treatment related complications.
    23. Known hypersensitivity to any excipients of bevacizumab
    formulation or to the chosen chemotherapy regimen
    (cisplatin-gemcitabine or carboplatin-paclitaxel).
