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   36348   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5989   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Phase 1: The primary objective of the Phase 1 study is to determine the recommended dose of AEG35156 when used in combination with gemcitabine in patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. This determination will be based upon the development of DLT during the first cycle of therapy, and on pharmacokinetic determination for plasma AEG35156 and gemcitabine,obtained after the first combined administration of the two agents.


    Phase 2: The Phase 2 is an open label, nonrandomized study. The primary objective of this study is to determine the objective response rate of AEG35156 when used in combination with gemcitabine in advanced pancreatic cancer. This determination will be based on objective tumor responses and progression-free survival. The tumor response will be evaluated at the end of every even numbered cycle (i.e., cycles 2, 4, 6, etc.) according to RECIST Response Criteria and the Choi Criteria. The RECIST Criteria will be used for response statistical analysis. The progression-free survival (PFS) will be measured from the treatment start date (date of first dose) to either the date the patient is first recorded as having disease progression (even if the patient went off treatment because of toxicity), or the date of death if the patient dies due to any causes before progression. Safety and tolerability, as measured by Grade 3-4 laboratory abnormalities related to study treatment, serious adverse events and adverse events will be assessed during the study through to 28 days post-last dose.
