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   35475   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5824   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.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To compare disease-free survival after treatment with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide followed by docetaxel (Taxotere®) (AC-T) with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide followed by docetaxel and trastuzumab (Herceptin®) (AC-TH) and with docetaxel in combination with carboplatin and Herceptin® (TCH) in the adjuvant treatment of node positive and high risk node negative subjects with operable breast cancer containing the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) alteration.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Subjects were fully informed of all pertinent aspects of the clinical trial as well as the possibility to discontinue at any time in language and terms appropriate for the subject and considering the local culture. During the course of the trial, subjects were provided with individual subject cards indicating the nature of the trial the subject is participating, contact details and any information needed in the event of a medical emergency. Collected personal data and human biological samples were processed in compliance with the Sanofi-Aventis Group Personal Data Protection Charter ensuring that the Group abides by the laws governing personal data protection in force in all countries in which it operates.

    Percentage of Subjects With Disease Free Survival at 5 Years [1]
    End point description
    Disease Free Survival was defined as the interval from the date of randomization to the date of local, regional or metastatic relapse or the date of second primary cancer (with the exception of curatively treated non-melanoma skin cancer or in situ carcinoma of the cervix) or death from any cause whichever occured first. Disease free survival was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Analysis was performed on Intent-To-Treat (ITT) population that included all randomized subjects.

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    08 May 2001
    This amendment contained the following substantive changes: • Echocardiography was allowed at study entry (in addition to multiple-gated acquisition [MUGA] scans) for confirmation of a subject’s left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) status. • Echocardiography guidelines and availability of videotapes of echocardiograms were added. • An LVEF evaluation was added at 36 months (AC→T and AC→TH) and 37.5 months (TCH) to allow for long-term assessment of cardiac function. • Clarifications regarding the dosing of carboplatin and trastuzumab, according to a subject’s weight modification, were added.
    30 Jul 2001
    This amendment contained the following substantive changes: • The dosing schedule for trastuzumab monotherapy after completion of chemotherapy was modified from administration once a week to administration every 3 weeks based on the results of two studies of the safety, anti-tumor activity, and pharmacokinetics of trastuzumab when administered every 3 weeks to subjects with HER2-positive (by immunohistochemistry or fluorescence in situ hybridization [FISH]) metastatic breast cancer (MBC). • Guidelines for trastuzumab initiation were modified for the AC→TH arm. • The trastuzumab post-infusion observation periods were revised. • The optional HER2 extracellular domain (ECD) and cardiac biochemical marker substudies were extended.
    10 Apr 2002
    This amendment contained the following substantive changes: • The TCH regimen was modified so that the platinum salt was limited to carboplatin (ie, cisplatin was no longer allowed), based on updated results from the BCIRG 101 and 102 studies. • The instructions describing the administration of trastuzumab and the dose calculation for carboplatin was clarified. • Measurement of the follicle-stimulating hormone to luteinizing hormone ratio to assess menopausal status in subjects <55 years old with a history of hysterectomy without bilateral ovariectomy was no longer required.

    This amendment contained the following substantive changes: • Statistical considerations were revised as follows: − Based on the results of BCIRG 001 study, the assumed DFS rate at 5 years in the AC→T arm was changed from 55% to 70%. − The independed data monitoring committee (IDMC) requested interim efficacy analyses when 300, 450, and 650 DFS events had been observed and a main analysis when 900 DFS events had been observed (the initial protocol called for one interim analysis at 654 events and a final analysis at 1308 events). − In order to gain power for the two comparisons of main interest, a “step-down” testing procedure was proposed (instead of three pairwise comparisons). It was also proposed to use the O’Brien-Fleming spending function instead of the Haybittle-Peto. • Following a request from the IDMC, one additional cardiac safety analysis was to be conducted when all subjects had been observed for at least 9 months. • The indication for adjuvant hormonal therapy was modified to allow the use of aromatase inhibitors for postmenopausal subjects who were estrogen receptor (ER)- or progesteron receptor (PR)-positive, as well as for subjects for whom tamoxifen was contraindicated. • In addition, the use of letrozole was allowed for subjects having completed 5 years of tamoxifen therapy. • Based on American Society of Clinical Oncology 2002 follow-up guidelines, hematologic and blood chemistry evaluations and chest X-rays were no longer required during the follow-up period.
