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   42758   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   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

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate whether changes of uptake on 18F-RGD PET-CT before, during and after anti-angiogenic therapy are associated with tumour response in patients with cancer.
    Protection of trial subjects
    Since the adverse event profile of Fluciclatide (18F) Injection has not yet been fully established in humans, safety was monitored closely in this study given the small risk of anaphylaxis. Patients were observed for an hour following 18F injection for: Physical examination; blood pressure and pulse.
    Background therapy
    Patients will be given a Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI) as per standard of care for their metastatic renal cell cancer (RCC) TKI to be given as per the current cancer network treatment protocol. The most commonly prescribed TKI for metastatic RCC is sunitinib. Other TKIs may be used for the patient to participate.. Sunitinib is typically taken orally at a dosage of 50mg once daily for 4 consecutive weeks with a 2-week rest period (that is, a complete treatment cycle of 6 weeks). Participants will be treated for 3 cycles. If significant progression is not demonstrated then patients will have continuous therapy (with restaging every 3 cycles) of sunitinib until significant progression or death.

    Primary: Correlation between tumour response to TKI therapy and change in SUVmax from baseline

    Close Top of page
    End point title
    Correlation between tumour response to TKI therapy and change in SUVmax from baseline [1]
    End point description
    The null hypothesis assumed no correlation between change in SUVmax and tumour response; H0: r=0; where r=Pearson’s correlation coefficient. To assess the primary endpoint of study volume and SUVpeak measurements of the tumour deposits were used. SUVpeak was chosen over SUVmax as it is more accurate. Volume of the lesions was calculated as: Volume=4/3πxyz (where x,y and z are the dimensions of tumour deposits in orthogonal planes). Change in volume and SUVpeak between scans were determined percentages. The percentage change for each patient was calculated as an average of the target and non-target lesions. Percentage changes were correlated using a Pearson’s correlation. SUVpeak change between baseline and 2nd PET-CT scan had a significant correlation with change in volume between the baseline and both the 2nd and 3rd PET-CT scans (R=0.66 P=0.04 and R=0.67, P=0.03, respectively) No correlation demonstrated between change in SUVpeak at baseline and 3rd PET-CT scans and volume changes.
    End point type
    End point timeframe
    Changes in tumour uptake (% change in SUVmax) of 18F between baseline scan and second scan after 4 weeks TKI treatment.
    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: This is a single arm study with no comparator hence statistical analysis cannot be completed

    The trial failed to recruit the 40-50 patients required to achieve statistical significance and hence is significantly under powered.
