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   42761   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   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.

Patients will be able to continue sorafenib (Nexavar®) treatment until the treating physician feels the patient is no longer benefiting from the treatment or sorafenib (Nexavar®) becomes commercially available, and reimbursed for the respective indication as applicable in the country in which the patient lives or until intolerable/unacceptable toxicity occurs.

    8) Patients who are receiving concurrent combination with sorafenib (Nexavar) and capecitabine in their originating study 12444 (RESILIENCE) will be eligible.
    9)Patients who have completed the End of Treatment assessments in their originating study. Every effort should e made to conduct the End of Treatment visit such that the patient does not have any interruption in sorafenib dosing.

    10) Concurrent immunotherapy (including monoclonal antibodies), during or within 30 days prior to start of study drug
    11) Concurrent hormonal therapy, except for bisphosphonates, during or within 30 days prior to start of study drug
    12) Concomitant Rifampicin and St John’s Wort (Warfarin may be used only with very close monitoring).
