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   40995   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6701   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The principal research question is to find out whether testosterone replacement therapy can reduce body fat and improve quality of life in young male cancer survivors who have a borderline low level of testosterone. This question is split in to two principal research objectives which are: • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of testosterone treatment on levels of fat within the body • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of testosterone treatment on the participants' physical functioning. This information is collected using questionnaires that are completed by the participant.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of treatment with testosterone gel on lean body mass, whole body fat mass, BMI, waist circumference, blood insulin, glucose, lipid and LH levels and bone density in hypogonadal cancer survivors • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of treatment with testosterone gel on participant self-reported quality of life, fatigue, self-esteem and sexual function scores in hypogonadal cancer survivors
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Able and willing to provide written informed consent • Able and willing to comply with all study procedures • Male • Aged between 25 and 50 years • Post-pubertal • Previous testicular cancer, lymphoma or leukaemia • At least 12 months from completion of curative treatment for testicular cancer, lymphoma or leukaemia • A serum testosterone level ≥7nmol/l and ≤12nmol/l • If taking any hormone replacement, on stable doses for the last 6 months
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 35 kg/m2 • Currently receiving corticosteroid therapy or likely to receive corticosteroids during the trial • Previous testosterone treatment within 12 months of entering the trial • Previous allogeneic bone marrow transplant • A history of hormone-dependent cancer (e.g. prostate or breast cancer) • A history of primary liver tumour • Previous history of hypercalcaemia • Nephrotic syndrome • Diabetes mellitus (type 1 or type 2) • Hypertension • Heart failure • Liver disease • Renal failure • Deep vein thrombosis • Systolic blood pressure > 100 mmHg diastolic or > 160 mmHg systolic after resting and three measurements - Clinically significant abnormal PSA or FBC • Other severe concurrent disease or mental disorder which would affect the collection of study measurements
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoints are truncal fat mass and the patient-reported SF36™ physical functioning scale at 26 weeks. Truncal fat mass will be measured by whole body dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Local quality assurance data and quality of scan images will be centrally reviewed. The SF-36™ is a well validated, multi-purpose standard health-related quality of life (QoL) evaluation questionnaire which will be used to assess generic, self reported QoL. It generates an 8-scale profile of functional health and well-being scores including a physical functioning scale, as well as summary measures of physical and mental health. This information relates to the previous 4 week time period.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary research objectives are: • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of testosterone treatment on Body Mass Index, waist circumference, blood insulin, glucose and lipid levels and bone density • To assess the effect of 26 weeks of treatment with testosterone gel on participant self-reported quality of life, fatigue, self-esteem and sexual function scores

It is acknowledged that continued treatment may not be possible for all participants and that this is a local decision made on a per patient basis by the GP.
