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   43931   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Each patient must meet the following criteria to be enrolled in this study.
    1. Willing and able to provide written informed consent.
    2. Written Authorization for Use and Release of Health and Research Study Information (US sites only) or Data Protection Consent (European sites only) has been obtained.
    3. Male aged 18 years and above.
    4. Histologically or cytologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the prostate.
    5. Metastatic disease documented by positive bone scan or metastaticlesions other than liver or visceral metastasis on CT, MRI. If lymph node metastasis is the only evidence of metastasis, it must be ≥ 2 cm in diameter.
    6. Prostate cancer progression documented by PSA according to PCWG2 or radiographic progression according to modified RECIST criteria.
    7. Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic from prostate cancer. A score of 0-1 on BPI-SF Question #3 (worst pain in last 24 hours) will be considered asymptomatic, and a score of 2-3 will be considered mildly symptomatic.
    8. Surgically or medically castrated, with testosterone levels of < 50 ng/dL (< 2.0 nM). If the patient is being treated with LHRH agonists (patient who have not undergone orchiectomy), this therapy must have been initiated at least 4 weeks prior to Cycle 1 Day 1 and must be continued throughout the study.
    9. Previous anti-androgen therapy and progression after withdrawal. Patients who received combined androgen blockade with an anti-androgen must have shown PSA progression after discontinuing the anti-androgen prior to enrollment (≥ 4 weeks since last flutamide, ≥ 6 weeks since last bicalutamide or nilutamide).
    10. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1.
    11. Hemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL independent of transfusion.
    12. Platelet count ≥100,000/µL.
    13. Serum albumin ≥ 3.5 g/dL.
    14. Serum creatinine < 1.5 x ULN or a calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 60 mL/min.
    15. Serum potassium ≥ 3.5 mmol/L.
    16. Liver function:
    i. Serum bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN (except for patients with documented Gilbert’s disease)
    ii. AST or ALT < 2.5 x ULN.
    17. Able to swallow the study drug whole as a tablet.
    18. Life expectancy of at least 6 months.
    19. Patients who have partners of childbearing potential must be willing to use a method of birth control with adequate barrier protection as determined to be acceptable by the principal investigator and sponsor during the study and for 13 weeks after last study drug administration.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded from the study:
    1. Active infection or other medical condition that would make prednisone/prednisolone (corticosteroid) use contraindicated.
    2. Any chronic medical condition requiring a higher dose of corticosteroid than 5mg prednisone/prednisolone bid.
    3. Pathological finding consistent with small cell carcinoma of the prostate.
    4. Liver or visceral organ metastasis.
    5. Known brain metastasis.
    6. Use of opiate analgesics for cancer-related pain, including codeine and dextropropoxyphene, currently or anytime within 4 weeks of Cycle 1 Day 1.
    7. Prior cytotoxic chemotherapy or biologic therapy for the treatment of CRPC.
    8. Radiation therapy for treatment of the primary tumor within 6 weeks of Cycle 1, Day 1.
    9. Radiation or radionuclide therapy for treatment of metastatic CRPC.
    10. Previously treated with ketoconazole for prostate cancer for greater than 7 days.
    11. Prior systemic treatment with an azole drug (e.g. fluconazole, itraconazole) within 4 weeks of Cycle 1, Day 1.
    12. Prior flutamide (Eulexin) treatment within 4 weeks of Cycle 1, Day 1 (patients whose PSA did not decline for three or more months in response to antiandrogen given as a second line or later intervention will require only a two week washout prior to Cycle 1, Day 1).
    13. Bicalutamide (Casodex), nilutamide (Nilandron) within 6 weeks of Cycle 1 Day 1 (patients whose PSA did not decline for three or more months in response to antiandrogen given as a second line or later intervention will require only a two week washout prior to Cycle 1, Day 1).
    14. Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic BP ≥ 160 mmHg or diastolic BP ≥ 95 mmHg). Patients with a history of hypertension are allowed provided blood pressure is controlled by anti-hypertensive treatment.
    15. Active or symptomatic viral hepatitis or chronic liver disease.
    16. History of pituitary or adrenal dysfunction.
    17. Clinically significant heart disease as evidenced by myocardial infarction, or arterial thrombotic events in the past 6 months, severe or unstable angina, or New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II-IV heart disease or cardiac ejection fraction measurement of < 50% at baseline.
    18. Atrial Fibrillation, or other cardiac arrhythmia requiring therapy.
    19. Other malignancy, except non-melanoma skin cancer, with a ≥ 30% probability of recurrence within 24 months.
    20. Administration of an investigational therapeutic within 30 days of Cycle 1, Day 1.
