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   38003   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6235   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.

Patients who require additional therapy for GVHD in the first 4 weeks after study initiation are considered to be treatment failures for the primary endpoint. Patients who die within the first 4 weeks after start of study regardless of GVHD status at the time of death are also regarded as treatment failures.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The following secondary endpoints will be assessed and compared between study arms:
    Complete response rate by day 56 and day 84 after study initiation
    Time to complete resolution of acute GVHD to first-line therapy
    Duration of response to first-line therapy of acute GVHD
    Cumulative dose ofsteroids in mg/kg/day from day 0 to days 28 and 56 after study
    initiation
    Time to discontinuation of steroids as first-line therapy of acute GVHD
    Percent of patients in need of secondary treatment for acute GVHD
    Complete response rate to secondary treatment of acute GVHD assessed on day 28
    after start of second-line therapy
    Incidence of bacterial, viral and fungal infections until day 84 and 6 months after
    study initiation
    Incidence of recurrence of malignant disease at 6 months and 12 months after study
    initiation
    Transplant-related mortality at 6 months and 12 months after study initiation
    Overall survival at day 6 months and 12 months after study initiation

    - Patients who have a known hypersensitivity or allergy to 8-methoxypsoralen
    - Patients with uncontrolled infections at onset of acute GVHD.
    -Patients with serious hemorrhage and/or gastrointestinal bleeding
    - Patients who had previous treatment with ECP.
    - Patients who received treatment with prednisolone for > 72 hours.
    - Patients unable to tolerate removal of > 500 ml of circulating blood volume required for the ECP procedure.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the complete resolution of GVHD manifestations without additional therapy for GVHD before response is evaluated on day 28 (week 4) after study initiation. Patients who require additional therapy for GVHD in the first 4 weeks after study initiation are considered to be treatment failures for the primary endpoint. Patients who die within the first 4 weeks after start of study regardless of GVHD status at the time of death are also regarded as treatment failures.
