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   42330   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this trial is to evaluate the activity of romidepsin in patients with progressive or relapsed PTCL following prior systemic therapy. The primary efficacy parameter is the rate of complete response, defined as the proportion of patients with complete response (CR) and unconfirmed complete response [CR(u)] according to the IWC for responses assessment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To estimate the rate of objective disease response (ORR), defined as the proportion of patients with CR, CR(u), and partial response (PR);
    • To estimate the duration of response, defined as the time from the first date of a disease response to the date of diagnosis of progressive disease (PD) or date of last study assessment if there is no disease progression;
    • To estimate the time to objective disease progression;
    • To assess tolerability and safety of romidepsin; and
    • To estimate the change in Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    • CR (Complete Response) : For the purposes of reviewing radiology, CR is defined as the complete disappearance of all radiographic evidence of disease. All large Nodal Index lesions (identified as abnormal lymph nodes or nodal masses > 15mm at baseline) must have decreased to ≤15 mm in their greatest diameter. All small Nodal Index lesions (identified as abnormal lymph nodes or nodal masses between 11mm and 15mm at baseline) must have decreased to ≤10 mm in their greatest diameter or,in aggregate, those lesions must have regressed >75% in their SPD compared to baseline. If the spleen or liver is considered to have been enlarged before therapy due to involvement by lymphoma, it must have regressed in size. Any macroscopic nodules detectable in any organs should no longer be present.
    • CR(u) (Complete Response unconfirmed): Includes all the criteria for CR listed above except that all Nodal Index lesions (large or small) must have regressed > than 75% in the SPD from baseline. Individual nodes that were previously confluent must have regressed by > 75% in their SPD compared to the SPD of the original mass.
    • PR (Partial Response): Requires all of the following: 1) ≥50% decrease in SPD of the six largest dominant nodes or nodal massess; 2) Extranodal Index lesions must also decrease by ≥50% from baseline in their SPD (can include hepatic and splenic nodules); 3) no obvious increase in the size of Non-Index lesions, liver, or spleen; and 4) no new sites of disease (defined as no new node >10 mm in greatest diameter and no newly detectable lesions).
    • SD (Stable Disease): To be considered SD, lesions must not meet the criteria for PR listed above, and should not qualify for PD.
    • PD (Progressive Disease) : Requires either of the following: 1) Appearance of any new lesion defined as a new node >10 mm in greatest diameter or a newly detectable extranodal lesion;
