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   37755   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6186   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The objective of this phase 2 study is to evaluate the antitumor activity, safety, and tolerability of sorafenib versus placebo when used in combination with mFOLFOX6 (5-fluorouracil [5-FU], levo-leucovorin [LLV], and oxaliplatin) in subjects with mCRC who have not been previously treated for Stage IV disease.

    The primary endpoint is PFS, which will be measured from the date of randomization to the date of first observed progressive disease (PD, radiological or clinical, whichever is earlier) or the date of death due to any cause (if occurring before progression). For subjects without documented progression or death at the time of analysis, the PFS will be censored at the last date of tumor assessment. If a subject has no tumor assessments after Baseline, then the subject will be censored at Day 1.
