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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    PFS is defined as the time from randomization to the first observation of disease progression or death from any cause. Patients without documented progression or death will be censored as of the last tumor evaluation determining lack of progression.
    Safety and tolerability of IMAB362 in combination with EOX.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Imaging will be performed to determine tumor burden at the following timepoints:
    • Baseline: ≤9 - 1 days prior to initiation of therapy (baseline) if the last assessment is older than 4 weeks
    • 6-weekly intervals until week 31, meaning week 7, 13, 19, 25, 31 (day 1 ± 4 days of these weeks)
    • every 12 weeks thereafter, meaning week 40, 49, ff (day 1± 4 days of these weeks)
    • anytime in between if there is clinical indication for progression
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Time to Progression is defined as the time from randomization of therapy to the first observation of confirmed disease progression. For patients who have not progressed either clinically or on the last scan, they will be censured as of the last tumor evaluation.
    • To determine survival status at 12 months following initiation of therapy each patient will be classified as alive or dead (irrespective of cause of death). For this purpose, upon completion of the last cycle, all patients will continue to be followed until death or loss to follow up. Patients who discontinue treatment due to progression will be followed in the same manner.
    • Overall survival is defined as the time from randomization to death from any cause or last contact if alive.
    • Objective Response Rate comprises the fraction of patients with CR, PR according to RECIST v1.1. It is set in relation to the FAS set and PP
    • Disease Control Rate is defined as the fraction of patients with CR or
    PR or SD according to RECIST v1.1. It is set in relation to the FAS set and PP population.
    • Duration of response is determined as the time when criteria for CR, PR, SD are first met until the first date that recurrent or progressive disease or death occur.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Timepoints for all imaging assessments and tumor marker level evaluation to determine CR, PR, SD or PD are:
    • Imaging will be performed to determine tumor burden at the following timepoints:
    • Baseline: ≤9 - 1 days prior to initiation of therapy (baseline) if the last assessment is older than 4 weeks
    • 6-weekly intervals until week 31, meaning week 7, 13, 19, 25, 31 (day 1 ± 4 days of these weeks)
    • every 12 weeks thereafter, meaning week 40, 49, ff (day 1± 4 days of these weeks)
    • anytime in between if there is clinical indication for progression
