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   38942   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6397   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 time to disease progression between the control group receiving best supportive care and the group receiving ADI-PEG 20 and best supportive care.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The following will be assessed in control and ADI-PEG-20 groups:

    i)To measure the response rate (partial response (PR) and complete response (CR)

    ii)To measure the median overall survival rates (or at 18 month survival)

    iii)To assess the safety (adverse events)

    Tertiary and Exploratory Objectives

    Tertiary
    i)To measure peripheral blood arginine and citrulline levels, levels of ADI-PEG 20 and development of antibodies to ADI-PEG 20

    ii)To measure serum mesothelin as a tumour marker for the management of patients with MPM

    Exploratory Objectives
    i)Pharmacogenomics
    Construction of a cDNA library to enable microarray analysis to establish
    clinically relevant biomarkers. Tumour and peripheral blood leukocyte genomic DNA will be obtained and banked to enable prospective pharmacogenomic studies. These may include analysis of gene copy number by microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) analysis and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) microarray analyses
