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   38892   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6392   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The main objective of the trial is to prospectively assess the efficacy, toxicity, quality of life with PEG IFN alfa-2b as compared to observation after adequate surgery for ulcerated primary cutaneous melanomas with T(2-4)bN0M0.
    The primary objective is to determine whether post-operative adjuvant therapy with PEG IFN alfa-2b improves relapse-free survival (PFS) as compared to observation.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are:
    - to compare adverse event profiles between patients receiving PEG IFN alfa-2b versus patients in the observation arm
    - to determine whether post-operative adjuvant therapy with PEG IFN alfa-2b improves overall survival (OS) as compared to observation
    - to determine whether post-operative adjuvant therapy with PEG IFN alfa-2b improves distant metastases-free survival (DMFS) as compared to observation
    - to compare quality of life between the two arms (PEG IFN alfa-2b versus observation)
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Subjects must have histologically documented ulcerated primary cutaneous melanoma with a Breslow thickness > 1mm that has been excised radically 3 months prior to randomization. Excision margins of at least 1 cm are required. In the head and neck areas and in case of locations distally on extremities narrower margins are acceptable as long as they are radical.

    - Subjects must be between 18-70 years old.
    - Subjects must have adequate hepatic, renal and bone marrow function as defined by the following parameters obtained within 4 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment

    - Subjects who have not recovered from the effects of recent surgery
    - Subjects with a history of prior malignancy within the past 10 years other than surgically cured non-melanoma skin cancer or cervical carcinoma in situ
    - Subjects who have severe cardiovascular disease, i.e., arrhythmias requiring chronic treatment, congestive heart failure (NYHA Class III or IV) or symptomatic ischemic heart disease
    - Subjects with thyroid dysfunction not responsive to therapy
