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   37212   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6120   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.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    [1] Patients present with a first recurrence or first progression of a histological confirmed primary supratentorial glioblastoma multiforme WHO Grade IV (Classification following WHO criteria). Note: Patients may be entered based on local pathology from the original diagnostic tumor specimen. For Translational Research Studies the original paraffin block - including sufficient tissue of the primary tumor - is required. Stereotactic biopsies or open biopsies of the primary GBM without sufficient tumor tissue are not feasible and the patients must not be enrolled in this study.

    [2] Patients with surgical resection of first tumor progression: Following standard therapy patients must have evidence of first tumor progression. In general, patients may have undergone prior surgical resection of the first tumor progression and will be eligible if the following conditions apply:
     Patients must have recovered from the effects of surgery
     To adequately asses the GBM before surgery and the extent of residual disease postoperatively, following MRIs scans have to be performed:
    An MRI within 2 weeks before surgery of a progressed GBM followed by an MRI within 48 hours after surgery
    Note: If the 48-hour scan is performed more than 14 days prior to study enrollment, the scan needs to be repeated, however, the <48 hour MRI is the baseline scan
     Patients must be on a steroid dosage that has been stable for at least 5 days before MRI
    Note: If the steroid dose is increased between the date of imaging and enrollment, a new baseline MRI is required on a stable steroid dosage of at least 5 days duration
    Patients without surgical resection of first tumor progression: Patients must have evidence of first tumor progression following standard therapy as measured by a baseline MRI within 2 weeks prior to study enrollment (Macdonald criteria: i.e. tumor growth > 25% or new lesion).
    Note: Patients must be on a steroid dosage that has been stable for at least 5 days before MRI. If the steroid dose has increased between the date of imaging and enrollment, a new baseline MRI is required on a stable steroid dosage of at least 5 days duration.

    [3] Resolution of all acute toxic effects of prior therapy to grade ≤ 1

    [4] Patients must have an ECOG performance status of 0-2 (

    [5] Patients must be ≥ 18 years and ≤ 75 years of age, with a life expectancy of greater than 8 weeks

    [6] Patients must have adequate organ function as defined by the following criteria:
    Bone Marrow Reserve - Platelets ≥ 75.000/μL

    - Hemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL
    Blood Coagulation - aPTT ≤ 1.5 times upper limit of normal (ULN)
    Hepatic Function - ASAT and ALAT ≤ 1.5 times ULN
    - ALP ≤ 2.5 times ULN
    - Total Serum Bilirubin < 1 times ULN
    Renal Function - Serum Creatinine ≤ 1.5 times ULN
    Metabolism - Serum Albumin ≥ 3.0 g/dL
    Heart Function - Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) ≥ 50% as measured by transthoracic echocardiogram (ECHO)
    All tests must be performed ≤ 3 days prior to study enrollment. Eligibility for hemoglobin count may be reached by transfusion

    [7] Signed and dated informed consent document by the patient, indicating that the patient has been informed of all the pertinent aspects of the trial prior to study enrollment

    [8] Willingness and ability of the patient to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plans, laboratory tests, and other study procedures
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    [9] The patient is active participant in another clinical trial.

    [10] Exclusion of patients in the event of
     surgery for recurrence/progression within 1 week prior to study enrollment
     chemotherapy within 4 weeks prior to study enrollment
     treatment with more than one chemotherapy regime
     radiation therapy within 8 weeks to study enrollment
     evidence in baseline MRI of intratumoral or peritumoral hemorrhage deemed clinically significant by the treating physician (area of hemorrhage > 25% of tumor area)

    [11] Significant Co-Morbidities within 12 months prior to study enrollment
     myocardial infarction, severe/unstable angina pectoris, coronary/peripheral artery bypass graft, congestive heart failure
     pulmonary embolus
     cerebro-vascular accident including TIA (transient ischemic attack)

    [12] Significant Co-Morbidities at the Baseline Evaluation
     Clinically significant ongoing cardiac dysrhythmias of grade ≥ 2, atrial fibrillation of any grade, QTc interval > 470 ms measured by electrocardiogram (ECG)
     Hypertension that cannot be controlled by medications (>150/100 mmHg despite optimal medical therapy)
     A known HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) or Hepatitis B/C infection or severe acute infection

    [13] Anticoagulation: Current treatment with therapeutic doses of Marcoumar / Sintrom excluding thrombosis prophylaxis with low dose Heparin.

    [14] Antiepileptic Drugs: Concurrent use of EIADs within 2 weeks of study enrollment (patients must discontinue EIAD treatment ≥ 14 days prior to study enrollment, refer to Section and Protocol Attachment A.9)

    [15] Pregnancy, Breastfeeding and Contraception
     Female patients who are pregnant or nursing
     Female patients of child-bearing age or male patients who are unwilling or unable to use adequate contraception to prevent pregnancy during the study.
    Note: Female and male patients with reproductive potential must use an approved contraceptive method (i.e., birth control pills, intrauterine device [IUD], or barrier device) during and for 3 months after discontinuation of study treatment. Female Patients with child-bearing age must have a negative serum pregnancy test ≤ 3 days prior to study enrollment. During study treatment pregnancy has to be excluded (serum pregnancy tests every 2 weeks until tumor progression).

    [16] Evidence of increased intracranial pressure
     midline shift > 5 mm
     distinct nausea and vomiting

    [17] Other severe acute or chronic medical or psychiatric condition or laboratory abnormality that would impart excess risk associated with study participation or study drug administration, or which would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study. The decision to enroll the patient in this study is in the judgment of the investigator.

Due to a possible 18 months recruitment phase and a period of about months of Sunitinib treatment until end of treatment (EOT), the entire study period will last about 2 years.
