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   33728   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5463   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.

To quantify the maintenance of the molecular remission, after imatinib discontinuation, in CML patients with negative Q-RT-PCR for longer than 18 months. 4. To evaluate the impact of imatinib treatment (discontinuation and resumption) on quality of life. 5. To assess the timing of recurrence. 6. To quantify the occurrence of progression/resistance in patients who relapse after imatinib resumption. 7. To evaluate whether survival of patients dPCR negative and relapse free at 36 months is comparable to the one of normal population. 8. To evaluate whether survival of relapsing patients is comparable to the survival of the non relapsing ones.
    1. Valutare il tasso di ricaduta dopo la sospensione di imatinib. 2. Analizzare le caratteristiche tecniche della dPCR. 3. Quantificare la durata della RMC dopo la sospensione di imatinib nei pazienti di LMC con Q-RT-PCR a esito negativo da più di 18 mesi. 4. Valutare l'impatto del trattamento con imatinib (sospensione e riassunzione) sulla qualità della vita. 5. Determinare il momento della ricaduta della malattia. 6. Quantificare gli eventi di progressione/resistenza dopo riassunzione di imatinib nei pazienti ricaduti. 7. Valutare se la sopravvivenza dei pazienti con dPCR con esito negativo, che non sono ricaduti dopo 36 mesi, e' comparabile con quella della popolazione normale. 8. Valutare se la sopravvivenza dei pazienti che sono ricaduti è comparabile con quella dei pazienti che non sono ricaduti.
