Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7258   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the functioning of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in supporting hematopoietic cells transplantation (HSC).
    Cotransplantation of MSC with HSC may be beneficial by preventing rejection, decreasing graft-versus-host disease, enhancing engraftment and preventing tissue toxicity by chemoirradiation.
    GvDH incidence (acute grade II-IV GvDH) will be used as measure of efficacy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. Determination of time to neutrophil engraftment (>0.5 x 10E9/l).
    2. Determination of time to platelet engraftment (>30 x 10E9/l).
    3. Platelet level at day 30 post transplant.
    4. Transfusions during first 30 days.
    5. Incidence of chronic GvHD.
    6. Treatment-related mortality (causes of death).
    7. Overall relapse rate.
    8. Survival.
    9. Disease-free survival.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patient inclusion criteria
    1. Informed consent.

    2. Patients/subjects are required to meet the following inclusion criteria:
    a. Hematological disorders of the following types:
    ALL: patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in CR (<5% blasts in marrow) up to and including third remission (excluding relapse),
    AML: patients with acute myelocytic leukemia in remission,
    CML: patients with chronic myelocytic leukemia who are in the chronic phase of the disease,
    Severe aplastic anemia, hemoglobinopathies (thalassemia major), inborn errors of metabolism.
    b. Patients may have undergone myeloablative or reduced intensity conditioning regimen.
    c. Use of anti-thymocytes globulin (ATG) during conditioning, according to the routine at each center. Both arms must be treated identically at each center.

    3. Adequate cardiac function. Left ventricular ejection fraction or megascan or echocardiography must be at least 40% of predicted.

    4. Adequate pulmonary function as defined as no severe or symptomatic restrictive or obstructive lung disease. FEV-1 >50% of predicted and DLCO >50% of predicted.

    5. Female patients are non-pregnant.

    6 Patients must be HIV-1 and –2 antibody, HIV -1 antigen and hepatite A, B and C seronegatives.

    7. Patients must have a Karnofsky score of =70.

    8. Patients must have an HLA-A, -B and -DRß1 identical stem cell donor.
    (HLA typing according to the routine at each center).

    9. Immunosuppression should consist of cyclosporine or tacrolimus combined with four doses of methotrexate. Methotrexate is given on day+1, 15 mg/m2 and 10 mg/m2 on days +3, +6 and +11 after transplantation. Cyclosporine or tacromilus dose is according to the routines at each center. Because acute GvHD is a primary endpoint, no other immunosuppression than cyclosporine combined with methotrexate will be allowed.

    Donor inclusion criteria
    1. MSC donor must be HIV, HB-s antigen, anti HBc and anti HCV negative.

    2. Related haploidentical or HLA mismatched MSC donor willing to donate MSC

    3. Signed informed consent.

    4. Each center request either bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells according to routine at each center. If the donor only accepts one type of donation, he/she may be included anyhow.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patient exclusion criteria
    1. Hematologic malignancies, of the following types
    a) ALL patients in relapse as defined by >5% blasts in the marrow and/or circulating blasts in the peripheral blood,
    b) AML patients in relapse as defined by >5% blasts in the marrow.
    c) AML/ALL CR4 or later.
    d) CML in accelerated phase or blast crisis.
    e) MDS > RAEB II.

    2. Patient has active alcohol or substance abuse.

    3. Patient has a medical condition, which, in the opinion of the clinical investigator, would interfere with the evaluation of the patient.

    4. Patient needing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation within three weeks.

    5. Patient with a history of hyper-sensitivity to penicillin

    Donor exclusion criteria
    1. Donor more than 65 years of age, or unhealthy.

    2. Donor positive for HIV, HTLV, hepatitis Bs antigen, anti-HCV or anti-

GvHD incidence (acute grade II-IV GvDH) will be used as measure of efficacy.
