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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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.

    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Pre-emptive arm

    Children (18 years or younger) with CD19+ precursor B cell ALL fulfilling one of the following criteria who are undergoing an allogeneic stem cell transplant from an EBV-seropositive donor at one of the participating centers will be eligible for entry into the trial and EBV CTL generation:
    In first remission, if at least one of the following criteria are met:

    • t(9;22) and prednisone poor response or not in molecular remission (BCR-ABL/ABL ratio > 0.02%) pre-HSCT or
    • Infant ALL age < 6 months at diagnosis with MLL gene rearrangement and either presenting wcc >300 x 10*9/L or poor steroid early response (i.e circulating blast count >1x10*9/L following 7 day steroid pre-phase of Interfant 06) or
    • Resistant disease (> 30% blasts at end of induction treatment day 28-33) in subsequent morphological CR or
    • High level bone marrow MRD (> 1 in 1000) at week 12 ALL-BFM 2000/AIEOP BFM ALL 2009/EORTC 58951 protocols, week 12-15 of FRALLE A or at week 14 of UKALL2010

    Relapsed patients if at least one of the following criteria are met:
    • Very early (< 18 months from diagnosis) bone marrow or extramedullary relapse in second CR or
    • Early (within 6 months of finishing therapy) isolated bone marrow relapse with bone marrow MRD > 1 in 100 at day 35 of reinduction in second CR or
    • Early (within 6 months of finishing therapy) bone marrow or combined relapse with high level bone marrow MRD (> 1 in 1000) at the end of consolidation therapy (week 12-13 UKALL R3/INTREALL and COOPRALL protocols, prior to protocol M in BFM relapse protocol ((ALL-REZ BFM 2002)) and after Protocol II-IDA in AIEOP LLA Rec 2003).

    These patients have a high (> 50%) risk of relapse and will be monitored for evidence of MRD in bone marrow aspirates (monthly for months 1-6, 6 weekly months 7.5-12 post HSCT) for the first year post-transplant. Patients who become MRD +ve in the marrow at a level ≥ 5 x 10-4 but are in haematological remission will be eligible to be treated pre-emptively with CD19zeta transduced CTL.


    Prophylaxis arm

    Any patient (≤ 18 years) with precursor B-ALL relapsing in the bone marrow (either isolated or combined) after myeloablative allogeneic HSCT who achieves morphological remission after re-induction and who is a candidate for second HSCT at one of the participating sites is eligible to receive CD19zeta transduced CTL prophylactically
    - Stem cell donors must be EBV sero-positive and HLA-matched (10/10) or a single antigenic/allelic (9/10) mismatch with the recipient.
    - Patients must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.
    - Patients must have Karnofsky score of >60% if ≥ 10 years old or Lansky performance score of greater than 60 if < 10 years old (see Appendix 2 of protocol).
    - Patients must have transduced donor-derived EBV-specific CTLs with ≥15% expression of CD19ζ determined by flow-cytometry which meet the specified release criteria.
    - Patients or legal guardians must sign an informed consent indicating that they are aware this is a research trial and have been told of its possible benefits and toxic side effects.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients with CD19 negative precursor B cell ALL

    Patients transplanted from an EBV seronegative or > single antigenic/allelic HLA-mismatched donor.

    Patients with active acute GVHD overall Grade ≥2 (Seattle criteria) or significant chronic GVHD requiring systemic steroids at the time of scheduled infusion of transduced CTL will be excluded from infusion of transduced CTL until the patient is GVHD-free and off steroids.

    Patients with pre-existing severe lung disease (FEV1 or FVC < 50% predicted) pre-HSCT or an oxygen requirement of >28% O2 supplementation or active pulmonary infiltrates on chest X-ray at the time scheduled for transduced CTL infusion will be excluded.

    Patients with a serum bilirubin greater than 3 times the upper limit of normal or an AST or ALT greater than 5 times the upper limit of normal will be excluded.

    Patients with a serum creatinine greater than 3 times upper limit of normal will be excluded.

    Patients with an active severe intercurrent infection at the time of transduced CTL infusion may be excluded (if present consult with Chief investigator).

    Patients in whom transduced donor-derived EBV-specific CTLs do not meet release criteria will be excluded from receiving transduced CTL.

    Patients who are serologically positive for Hepatitis B, C or HIV pre-HSCT will be excluded.

    Female patients of childbearing age with a positive pregnancy test.

    In addition, patients with severe allergy to gentamicin will be excluded from receiving vaccination with irradiated donor-derived BLCL.

    (a) Incidence of grade 3-5 toxicity (graded by the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, v4.0) attributable to transfer of CD19-zeta transduced CTL within 12 weeks of infusion.
    (b) Incidence of significant (Grade II-IV) and severe (Grade III-IV) acute GVHD before day 100 (graded by Seattle criteria) and limited/extensive chronic GVHD between day 100-365.
