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   42869   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7063   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

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    In women with ER-positive breast cancer about to undergo surgery, does two week's pretreatment with a new drug (the PI3K inhibitor GDC-0941, given in combination with the estrogen-blocker anastrozole) increase the benefits of anastrozole in slowing down tumour cell growth, as measured by laboratory measurements on tumour cells?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Does the new combination kill cancer cells more effectively than anastrozole alone?

    • Is the new combination more effective than anastrozole alone in shrinking the breast cancer?

    • Is it possible to link any apparent benefits of using GDC-0941 to the biomarker status of the patient, perhaps leading to a strategy of tailored drug therapy to be examined in future studies?
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Women must meet ALL of the following criteria:

    • Histologically-confirmed breast cancer involving a palpable tumour of any size, or a tumour with an ultrasound-assessed diameter of ≥ 1.0 cm

    • Estrogen receptor (ER) positive tumours with ≥1% of tumour cells positive for ER on immunohistochemical staining or an immunhistochemistry score (Allred) of 3 or higher

    • *No prior systemic treatment regimens for the new primary breast cancer currently under investigation; prior treatment for previous breast cancer is allowed as long as it was completed at least 1 year prior to inclusion into this trial.*

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    For GDC-9041: treatment stops before surgery and would not be continued after surgery.

    For anastrozole: in both treatment groups it is likely that anastrozole would be prescribed after surgery as part of usual care. This decision will be at the discretion of the clinical care team and will not be influenced by participation in this study.
