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   36645   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6051   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary end-point of this study is: Safety and toxicity of the vaccination with mRNA transfected DCs in terms of occurrence of related adverse events, especially grade 3/4 adverse events assessed by reference to the NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events Version 4.0 (CTCAE).

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Those endpoints are evaluated continously. Patients are coming every 4 weeks to the site during the 3 years vaccination period.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary end-points of this study are:
    •Biochemistry and hematology results, vital signs and ECOG performance status.
    •Evaluation of immunological responses in terms of SI ≥ 2 or delta ≥ 10.000 measured by the 3H-thymidine proliferation test.
    •Evaluation of clinical responses in terms of time to disease progression, also slow progressive disease, and survival time measured from the time of study-enrolment.

    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Biochemistry and hematology results, vital signs and ECOG performance status will be measured every 4 weeks.

    Immune response will be measured 8 and 12 weeks after start of vaccination and every 3 months thereafter.

    Clinical response will be evaluated via:
    -measurement of CA-125 every 4 weeks
    -physical examination every 3rd months
    -CT taken every 3rd months
