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   41018   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6709   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To compare 5-year Event Free Survival (EFS) between the two treatment arms. The study is powered to demonstrate superiority of the dasatinib arm over the imatinib arm.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. To compare the rate of complete cytogenetic response after two years of study therapy in each of the treatment arms and the cumulative incidence of such responses with each of the regimens. The study is powered to demonstrate superiority of the dasatinib arm over the imatinib arm.
    2. To compare the treatment faliure rates (TFR) at 5 years between the two arms of the study
    3. To compare the rates of complete haematologic response (CHR) in patients treated with these regimens in each of the treatment arms
    4. To compare the level of 'molecular response (BCR-ABL/ABL ratio by real time PCR) in each of the treatment arms
    5. To compare the tolerability between the regimens. This will in part be incorporated into the treatment failure assessment.
    6. To assess quality of life between the regimens
    7. To assess the broad comparative costs between the regimens
    8. To compare overall survival at 2 and 5 years
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

Patients with International normalised ratio (INR) or partial thromboplastin time (PTT) > 1.5 x IULN, with the exception of patients on treatment with oral anticoagulants. 8. Patients with uncontrolled medical disease such as diabetes mellitus, thyroid dysfunction, neuropsychiatric disorders, infection, angina, or Grade 3/4 cardiac problems as defined by the New York Heart Association Criteria. 9. Patients with known positivity for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); baseline testing for HIV is not required. 10. Patients who have undergone major surgery within 4 weeks of Study Day 1, or who have not recovered from prior major surgery. 11. Patients who are: (a) pregnant, (b) breast feeding, (c) of childbearing potential without a negative pregnancy test prior to Study Day 1, and (d) male or female of childbearing potential unwilling to use barrier contr!
    aceptive precautions throughout the trial (postmenopausal women must b
    e amenorrheaic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential). 12.
