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

    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Overall Response:
    Assessed by CT scan of chest & abdomen 4 weeks after registration, then every 8 calender weeks until disease progression. CT scans every 12 weeks if patient is still on afatinib (BIBW 2992) after 1 year of treatment.

    Overall Survival:
    This will be measured in days, from the first day of treatment to the day of death.

    Change in performance status at 1 month:
    Change will be measured at 1 month.

    Safety:
    Safety will be assessed at each patient visit i.e. baseline, fortnightly for the first 2 cycles, monthly for 12 months and 2 monthly thereafter.

    Progression free survival in patients aged 70 and over:
    At progression or patient death.

    Treatment Compliance:
    Compliance will be examined based on the time between starting treatment and stopping it completely.
