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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Translational study on PET-CT, same date/version and objectives as main study.

    Primary objectives:

    1. To compare the accuracy of GTV assessment by simulation PET-CT with conventional means, clinical assessment and conventional CT-smulation.
    2. Prognostic value of SUVmax of the simulation PET-CT in relation to local control rate
    3. Predictive value of the early response PET-CT including change in SUVmax on final response and ultimate local control
    4. To compare the accuracy of the evaluation PET-CT response assessment with the clinical and/or radiological assessment (2 months after therapy)
    5. To correlate the δ SUV (difference between SUVmax of the simulation PET and SUV-max of the evaluation PET-CT) to local control rate.

    Secondary objectives:

    1. To assess stage migration from N0 to N1-3 and/ or M0 to M1 and detect
    unexpected (for instance contralateral regional) tumour foci
    2. To asses the non-specific effects of the reirradiation and hyperthermia treatment
    on the early response PET-CT
    3. To compare the RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumours)
    criteria38 with the PERCIST (PET Response Criteria In Solid Tumours) criteria.

    Translational study on tumour biology: DNA Damage response and hypoxia, same date/version and objectives as main study.


    1. a. To determine the DNA damage response (DDR) by means of determination of radiation
    induced gamma-H2AX foci and expression of DNA repair proteins (BRCA1, RAD 51
    and MRE11) in biopsies irradiated ex vivo (see 10.6 tumor tissue biopsy).

    b. Determine the relation between the DDR and tumor hypoxia.

    c. Determine the treatment induced gamma-H2AX foci and DNA repair proteins in biopsies
    taken 1 week after therapy and correlate the DDR with hypoxia and treatment outcome.

    2. a. Determine the relationship between tumor hypoxia (measured by Eppendorf
    polarographic electrode system) and expression of endogenous hypoxia markers in
    plasma samples

    b. Determine the relationship between tumor hypoxia (measured by Eppendorf
    polarographic electrode system) and expression of endogenous hypoxia markers (Hif1-
    alfa and CA-9) in the tumor sample

    3. To determine the relationship between hypoxia and plasma levels of the cytokine VEGF
    and PAI-1.
