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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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.

    * Discontinuation of sorafenib due to an adverse drug reaction, despite dose reduction by 1 level and BSC.
    * The patient has received sorafenib as the only systemic therapeutic intervention for advanced HCC. Any hepatic locoregional therapy that has been
    administered prior to sorafenib is allowed, but not following sorafenib. Radiation to metastatic sites (eg, bone) following sorafenib therapy is permitted.
    * Except where otherwise noted in the eligibility criteria, the patient has a resolution to grade ≤ 1 by the NCI-CTCAE v. 4.0 of all clinically significant toxic effects of prior locoregional therapy, surgery, chemoembolization or sorafenib.
    Adequate organ function defined as:
    * Total bilirubin < 3.0 mg/dL (51.3 μmol/L), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 5 × ULN;
    * Serum creatinine ≤ 1.2 × ULN or calculated creatinine clearance > 50 mL/minute;
    * Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.0 × 10exp3/μL (1.0 × 10exp9/L), hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL (5.58 mmol/L), and platelets ≥ 75 × 10exp3/μL (75 × 10exp9/L);
    * International Normalized Ratio (INR) ≤ 1.5. Patients receiving prophylactic low dose anticoagulant therapy are eligible provided that INR ≤ 1.5.
    * The patient's urinary protein is ≤ 1+ on dipstick or routine urinalysis.
    If urine dipstick or routine analysis indicates ≥ 2+ proteinuria, then a 24-hour urine must be collected and must demonstrate < 1000 mg of protein in 24 hours to allow participation in the study.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    * Major surgery within 28 days prior to randomization, or central venous access device placement within 7 days prior to randomization.
    * Hepatic locoregional therapy within 28 days prior to randomization.
    * Radiation to any nonhepatic (eg, bone) site within 14 days prior to randomization.
    * Sorafenib within 14 days prior to randomization.
    * Received any investigational therapy or non-approved drug within 28 days prior to randomization or is concurrently enrolled in any other type of medical research judged not to
    be scientifically or medically compatible with this study.
    * Received any previous systemic therapy with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors or vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) inhibitors (including investigational agents) other than sorafenib for treatment of HCC.
    * Fibrolamellar carcinoma.
    * Received any transfusion, blood component preparation, erythropoietin, albumin preparation, or granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (G-CSF) within 14 days prior to randomization.
    * Therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin, low-molecular-weight heparin, or similar agents. Patients receiving prophylactic, low-dose anticoagulation therapy are eligible provided that the coagulation parameters defined in the inclusion criteria (INR ≤ 1.5) are met.
    * Receiving ongoing therapy with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs, eg, indomethacin, ibuprofen, naproxen, nimesulide, celecoxib, etoricoxib, or similar agents) or other antiplatelet agents (eg, clopidogrel, ticlopidine, prasugrel, dipyridamole, picotamide, indobufen, anagrelide, triflusal).Aspirin (ASA) at doses up to 100 mg/day is permitted.
    * Symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, or symptomatic or poorly controlled cardiac arrhythmia.
    * Any arterial thrombotic event, including myocardial infarction, unstable angina, cerebrovascular accident, or transient ischemic attack, within 6 months prior to randomization.
    * Uncontrolled arterial hypertension ≥ 150 / ≥ 90 mm Hg despite standard medical management.
    * Grade 3-4 gastrointestinal bleeding or any variceal bleeding episode in the 3 months prior to randomization requiring transfusion, endoscopic or operative intervention (patients with any bleeding episode considered life-threatening during the 3 months prior to randomization are excluded, regardless of transfusion or intervention status).
    * Esophageal or gastric varices that require immediate intervention (eg, banding, sclerotherapy) or represent a high bleeding risk. Patients with evidence of portal hypertension (including splenomegaly) or any prior history of variceal bleeding must have had endoscopic evaluation within the 3 months immediately prior to randomization. Patients with evidence of portal hypertension are eligible for study participation if endoscopic evaluation does not indicate esophageal or gastric varices that require immediate intervention or represent a high bleeding risk; however, these eligible patients must receive supportive therapy (eg, beta blocker therapy) according to institutional standards and clinical guidelines during study participation.
    * Central nervous system (CNS) metastases or carcinomatous meningitis.

    and/or paracentesis.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary Efficacy Endpoint: Overall Survival
    Overall survival is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death from any cause.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    • The first interim analysis will occur when 25% (109) deaths have been observed.
    • The second interim analysis will be conducted when 50% (219) deaths have been observed.
    • The third interim analysis will be conducted when 75% (328) deaths have been observed.
    • The final OS analysis will be conducted when 100% (438) deaths have been observed. It will be a 1-sided test with a nominal significance level of 0.0241 to preserve the planned 0.025 overall significance level. Based on the assumptions, the expected time to observe this many events is 43 months from the enrollment of the first patient.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary efficacy endpoints to be analyzed are:
    • Progression-free survival
    • ORR
    • Time to radiographic progression
    • Patient-reported outcomes
    The analyses of the secondary endpoints will be adjusted by the stratification factors. An additional unstratified analysis will also be performed. The sequential order of the confirmatory testing after
    OS will be: PFS, ORR, and TTP. Tests will continue in this order so long as the previous test is significant.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Secondary endpoints will be analyzed at the same time as OS and at the same level of significance. If the difference in OS is statistically significant at the 1-sided 0.005 level at the interim efficacy analysis, the secondary efficacy endpoints will be analyzed at that time also with a 1-sided significance level of 0.005. However, if statistical significance at the 0.005 level is not observed for OS at the interim analysis, the secondary efficacy endpoints will be analyzed at the end of the study with the same level of significance as OS ( 1-sided 0.0241), provided that OS is significant.
    There may be additional exploratory efficacy analyses regarding response data, if deemed necessary.
