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   34905   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5686   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 evaluate the time to death in patients with newly diagnosed diffuse pontine gliomas, when treated with the combination of concomitant low dose oral Temozolomide and radiation therapy, followed by up to 12 months maintenance therapy with extended low dose Temozolomide. • To assess the quality of life in patients with diffuse pontine gliomas during and after the above treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To evaluate the time to tumour progression in patients with newly diagnosed diffuse pontine gliomas. • To evaluate and document toxicities from study treatment. • To document radiological response to treatment with an MRI scan (measures the size of the tumour) and where available through functional imaging (assesses the activity of the tumour rather than size alone)
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    a) Newly diagnosed diffuse intrinsic lesion centred in the pons on MRI imaging. No requirement for histological diagnosis. Clinical history of < 6 months. Clinical findings must include at least one of the 3 following signs of brainstem tumour i) cranial nerve deficit ii) long tract signs iii) ataxia b) Age between 2 and 21 years at initial diagnosis (i.e. up to but not including 22nd birthday) c) Patient has a Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) or a Lansky play score of greater than or equal to 60 unless reason for decrease in status is a direct result of neurological involvement of the brainstem glioma (Appendix B). d) Patient’s laboratory values (performed within 14 days prior to study drug administration, inclusive) are as follows: i) Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1.0 x 109/L ii) Platelet count greater than or equal to 100 x 109/L iii) Haemoglobin greater than or equal to 10 g/dL iv) Urea and serum creatinine <1.5 times upper limit of laboratory normal. v) Total and direct bilirubin <1.5 times upper limit of laboratory normal. vi) Serum AST and ALT <3 times upper limit of laboratory normal. e) Patient has life expectancy of greater than 12 weeks. f) A negative pregnancy test within 7 days prior to administration of Temozolomide for women of childbearing potential, and sexually active patients and partners agreeing to undertake adequate contraceptive measures g) Parent (and patient if appropriate) has given written informed consent. h) National and local ethical approval and regulatory approval.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    a) Focal lesions of brainstem. b) Predominantly exophytic tumours. c) Patient has received prior chemotherapy or radiotherapy. d) Patient has frequent vomiting and/or medical condition, which could interfere with oral medication intake (e.g. partial bowel obstruction). e) Pregnant or breastfeeding women.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    • Median survival times to tumour progression and to death after study entry. The response rate will be summarised and compared to historical controls treated with standard radiotherapy alone. • Quality of Life assessments will measure health status, behaviour and the subjective experience using HUI and SDQ methods. • Evaluation of toxicity, steroid usage, radiological response will be undertaken. • Adverse events including abnormal laboratory parameters will be tabulated and changes from baseline using CTC criteria will be summarized
