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   36400   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5997   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is a clonal disease resulting from genetic mutations and transformation of a single early progenitor lymphoid cell. Uncontrolled expansion of leukaemic blasts in the bone marrow leads to suppression of normal haematopoiesis as well as disseminated infiltration of organs and release of blasts into periphal blood.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.2 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.2Version 9.1
    E.1.2Level LLT
    E.1.2Classification code 10000844
    E.1.2Term Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine the number of patients with hypersensitivity reactions to rASNase.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - ASNase activity in serum directly before rASNase infusions 1, 2, 4, and 6 during induction treatment,
    - Concentrations of the amino acids asparagine (ASN), aspartic acid (ASP), glutamine (GLN), and glutamic acid (GLU) in serum directly before rASNase infusions 1, 2, 4, and 6 during induction treatment,
    -Anti-ASNase antibodies in serum directly before rASNase infusions 1, 2, 4, and 6 during induction treatment,
    - CR rate and MRD status after induction treatment phase A,
    - Relapse rate, relapse-free survival and event-free survival at end of follow-up,
    - Number of patients who could complete their full course of rASNase treatment,
    - Incidence and severity of adverse events.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Previously untreated T-lineage or precursor B-lineage ALL or biphenotypic leukaemia according to EGIL criteria.
    - Morphological verification of the diagnosis, confirmed with cyto¬chemistry and immunophenotyping. In case a bone marrow aspiration results in a “dry tap”, a trephine biopsy is advised unless it is possible to confirm the diagnosis by peripheral blood examination.
    - Age < 1 year at diagnosis.
    - Written informed consent of the parents or other legally authorised guardian of the patient.
    - Treatment according to protocol INTERFANT 06 (EudraCT number 2005-004599-19)
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    -Mature B-lineage ALL, defined by the immunophenotypical presence of surface immunoglobulines or t(8;14) and breakpoint as in B-ALL.
    - The presence of the t(9;22)(q34;q11) or bcr-abl fusion in the leukaemic cells (if these data are not known, the patient is eligible).
    - Systemic use of corticosteroids less than 4 weeks before diagnosis. Patients who received corticosteroids by aerosol are eligible.
    - Known allergy to any ASNase preparation.
    - Pre-existing known coagulopathy (e.g. haemophilia).
    - Pre-existing pancreatitis.
    - Liver insufficiency (bilirubin > 50 µmol/L; SGOT/SGPT > 10 x the upper limit of normal).
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    This non-controlled multicentre phase II study is designed to assess the safety and to describe (in relation to children of higher age) the pharmacodynamics of recombinant ASNase (rASNase) for first-line treatment of infants (< 1 year of age at diagnosis) with de novo acute lymphoblastic leukaemia
    Primary objective: To determine the number of patients with hypersensitivity reactions to rASNase.
