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   43209   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7151   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to compare the overall survival (OS) of patients
    who have received one prior regimen of dacarbazine or temozolomide-based chemotherapy for metastatic malignant melanoma when treated with either tasisulam or paclitaxel.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of the study are:
    - to compare the following between treatment arms:
    • time-to-event efficacy variables, including: PFS, duration of response (DoR), deterioration in the FACT-M TOI score
    • objective tumor response rate
    • therapeutic benefit rate
    • measures of relative safety, including quantitative & qualitative laboratory &
    non-laboratory toxicities
    • health outcome measures
    - Translational Research (TR):
    • to evaluate the treatment-specific and treatment-independent effects of BRAF and
    c-Kit mutational status on measures of clinical efficacy,
    • to evaluate the treatment-specific effects of genetic markers, including on measures of clinical efficacy & toxicity.
    • to assess other exploratory biomarkers relevant to tasisulam and paclitaxel
    • to assess other exploratory biomarkers relevant to the disease state of melanoma
    • to assess the association between other exploratory biomarkers & clinical
    outcome.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    [1] Have a histologic and/or cytologic diagnosis of metastatic melanoma
    (Stage IV).
    [2] Have the presence of evaluable disease as defined by the Response
    Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST version1.0).
    [3] Are at least 18 years of age.
    [4] Have a performance status of 0 to 1 on the Eastern Cooperative
    Oncology Group (ECOG) Scale (see Attachment JZAO.4).
    [5] Have progressed after 1 previous systemic treatment regimen
    containing dacarbazine or temozolomide for metastatic melanoma.
    [6] Have discontinued all previous therapies for cancer, including
    chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, or other investigational
    therapy for at least 30 days (45 days for mitomycin-C or nitrosoureas)
    before study enrollment and recovered from the acute effects of
    therapy (except alopecia). Whole-brain radiation must have been
    completed 90 days before starting study therapy.
    [7] Have adequate organ function including:
    • Bone Marrow Reserve: Absolute neutrophil count (ANC)
    ≥ 1.5 x 109/L prior to treatment, platelets ≥ 100 x 109/L, and
    hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL (transfusions are not allowed to reach 8 g/dL
    prior to enrollment).
    • Hepatic: Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN).
    Alkaline phosphatase and transaminases (ALT and AST) ≤5 times
    ULN.
    • Renal: Serum creatinine at or below the ULN. No known active
    renal disease.
    [8] Have a serum albumin level ≥ 3.0 g/dL or ≥ 30 g/L.
    [9] Males and females with reproductive potential should use medically
    approved contraceptive precautions during the trial and for 6 months
    following the last dose of study drug.
    [10] Females with child-bearing potential must have had a negative serum
    pregnancy test ≤ 7 days prior to the first dose of study drug.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    [14] Are currently enrolled in, or discontinued within the last 30 days from,
    a clinical trial involving an off-label use of an investigational drug or
    device (other than the study drug used in this study), or concurrently
    enrolled in any other type of medical research judged not to be
    scientifically or medically compatible with this study.
    [15] Have received ≥ 2 previous chemotherapy-containing systemic
    treatment regimens for metastatic melanoma. An immunotherapy or
    antibody-based regimen [including biologic agents and vaccinationbased
    treatments], or treatment with a targeted agent (e.g BRAF or c-
    Kit inhibitor, is not counted as a prior treatment regimen for
    determining study eligibility, unless either was combined with a
    cytotoxic drug).
    [16] Any previous treatment with paclitaxel or a paclitaxel-containing
    regimen for metastatic melanoma.
    [17] Have active central nervous system (CNS) or leptomeningeal
    metastasis (brain metastasis) at the time of study entry. Patients with
    signs or symptoms of neurological compromise should have
    appropriate radiographic imaging performed before study entry to rule
    out occult brain metastasis. Patients with a history of a solitary CNS
    metastasis previously treated with curative intent (e.g., stereotactic
    radiation or surgery) and not requiring steroids are eligible.
    [18] Have serious concomitant disorders, including active bacterial, fungal,
    or viral infection, incompatible with the study (at the discretion of the
    investigator).
    [19] Have a second primary malignancy that could affect compliance with
    the protocol or interpretation of the results. NOTE: Patients with
    adequately treated carcinoma of the skin (non-melanoma) and patients
    with a prior history of malignancy who have been disease-free for
    more than 2 years are eligible.
    [20] Have serious preexisting medical conditions (at the investigator’s
    discretion).
    [21] Are receiving warfarin.
    [22] Have previously completed or withdrawn from this study or any other
    study investigating tasisulam.
    [23] Have a known hypersensitivity to paclitaxel or Cremophor® EL
    (polyoxyethylated castor oil).
    [24] Are pregnant or lactating.
    [25] Have primary ocular or mucosal melanoma.
    [26] Have received a recent (within 30 days before enrollment) or are
    receiving concurrent yellow fever vaccination.
    [27] Have known positive test results in human immunodeficiency virus
    (HIV), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBSAg), or hepatitis C antibodies
    (HCAb).
