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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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
    The aim of the trial was to implement the antibody-drug conjugate brentuximab vedotin into the first-line treatment of patients with advanced classical Hodgkin lymphoma. The combination of targeted drugs such as brentuximab vedotin with conventional chemotherapy might allow reducing the doses of classical chemotherapeutic substances without compromising treatment efficacy. One major goal of this trial is to generate a novel BEACOPP-based treatment protocol to serve as comparator in the next GHSG treatment optimization trial for patients with newly diagnosed advanced classical Hodgkin lymphoma (HD21).

    Primary: Complete response to chemotherapy

    Close Top of page
    End point title
    Complete response to chemotherapy [1]
    End point description
    We defined complete response as the achievement of either complete remission, partial remission with residual lymphoma less than 2.5 cm, or PET negativity (Deauville score 1-3) after chemotherapy, according to central review. Both arms were analyzed separately. Assuming a complete response in 90% in each arm, we would be able to test the null hypothesis "complete response rate is 70% or lower" with a one-sided significance level of 2.5% and a power of 90% per arm. We calculated one-sided 97.5% Clopper-Pearson exact binominal CIs for observed responses in order to exclude the benchmark of 70%.
    End point type
    Primary
    End point timeframe
    The CT-based restaging was scheduled within the last week of the last chemotherapy cycle. In patients with residual lymphoma of 2.5 cm or larger, a PET scan was to be performed at least 3 weeks after the end of the last chemotherapy cycle.
    Notes
    [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 phase-2 study with 2 regimens to be evaluated independently. There is no arm comparison but 2 single-arm analyses, which cannot be entered in the system. Analyses were as follows: The null hypothesis H0 “Complete response rate<=70%” was tested versus a one-sided alternative via a one-sided 97.5% CI per arm. The lower confidence limits were 73% and 77%, respectively, and thus both above the efficacy benchmark. In conclusion, both null hypotheses could be rejected.

    End point title
    Complete remission [3]
    End point description
    We defined complete remission as complete remission after completion of study treatment or, in case of residual lymphoma after completion of study treatment, freedom from progression without additional treatment for at least 6 months. Both arms were analyzed separately. The co-primary efficacy endpoint was only to be tested if the null hypothesis for complete response could not be rejected. Assuming a complete remission rate of 95% for each arm, we would be able to test the null hypothesis "complete remission rate is 80% or lower" with a one-sided significance level of 2.5% and a power of 90% per arm. To this end, one-sided 97.5% Clopper-Pearson exact binominal CIs for observed remissions would be calculated in order to exclude the benchmark of 80%.

    End point timeframe

    Notes
    [3] - 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: The co-primary efficacy endpoint "complete remission" was only to be tested if the null hypothesis for the primary endpoint "complete response" could not be rejected. As the null hypothesis for "complete response" could be rejected for both regimens, a confirmative test of "complete remission" was not done.

    Adverse events information
    Timeframe for reporting adverse events
    All events up to 30 days after end of treatment had to be reported. Events that occured later than 30 days after the end of treatment had to be reported if causality was rated at least as “possible”.
    Adverse event reporting additional description
    AEs were assessed on the therapy administration CRFs. SAEs were additionally assessed on specific forms. SAEs may thus be reported twice; non-serious and SAEs might include duplicate events and do not add up to a total number of AEs. Hospitalization in connection with therapeutic measures of the trial and deaths from HL were no SAEs in this trial.

    Notes
    [1] - The number of subjects exposed to this adverse event is less than the total number of subjects exposed for the reporting group. These numbers are expected to be equal.
    Justification: Documentation of hepatobiliary disorders was introduced with an amendment of the case report form concerning acute AEs 3 months after start of recruitment. Thus, a small number of patients have no documented information about these AEs.
