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   36631   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6048   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the effect of gender on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of doxorubicin in AYA* patients with newly diagnosed:
    -Ewing family of tumours (EFT)**
    -Osteosarcoma (OS); or
    -Hodgkin lymphoma (HL)
    *AYA is defined as young people who have entered puberty (Tanner stage ≥2) or are pubertally mature, regardless of whether they are being treated on an adult chemotherapy regimen or a children’s chemotherapy regimen.
    **EFT includes Ewing’s sarcoma of bone, extra-osseous Ewing Sarcoma, and PNET (primitive neuroectodermal tumour) outside the central nervous system.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1) To evaluate the effect of gender and pubertal stage on the pharmacokinetics(PK) of doxorubicin in children and AYA with newly diagnosed:
    - Ewing family of tumours (EFT); or
    - Osteosarcoma (OS)

    2)To explore the relationship between doxorubicin PK and doxorubicin pharmacodynamics (PD), in children and AYA with newly diagnosed EFT, OS or HL, where PD is measured by each of the following metrics in turn:

    a)Worst grade of neutropenia( Low white blood Cells), thrombocytopenia (Low Platelets), or mucositis (Sore Mouth) in cycle 1 of chemotherapy, as measured at the scheduled assessment times .

    b) Tumour response, which will be measured in different ways for different groups of patients as follows
    - by International Working Group Criteria 33 for HL patients;

    - by tumour necrosis( Amount of dead tumour following chemotherapy) for OS and EFT patients where surgery is performed; and

    - by RECIST criteria (RECIST creiteria is an objective scheme for measuring tumour resp
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Newly diagnosed with osteosarcoma, Ewing family of tumours or Hodgkin lymphoma
    - ≥1 year and 40years of age (in the UK only patients aged 11 - 40 years will be recruited)
    - Planned treatment involves standard of care doxorubicin-containing regimens.
    - Written informed consent from patient and/or patient’s parent or legal guardian.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    - Impaired hepatic function such as known chronic liver disease, evidence of impaired synthetic function or transaminases raised >5 x normal

    - Significant uncontrolled systemic illness as judged by investigator

    - Females who are pregnant or breast feeding
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)

    The primary endpoint will be AUC (Area Under the Curve) calculated from the doxorubicin concentration-time curves (Ct) derived from the PK samples.

    N.B The primary aim of the study is to evaluate the effect of gender on pharmacokinetcs of doxorubicin in children and young adults with newly diagnosed Ewing family of tumours, osteosarcoma and Hodgkin lymphoma.



    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The PK will be evaluated during the first cycle of chemotherapy.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    To evaluate the effect of gender and pubertal stage on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of doxorubicin in children and adolescents and young adults (AYA) with newly diagnosed Ewing family of tumours (EFT) or osteosarcoma (OS).
    To explore the relationship between doxorubicin PK and pharmacodynamics (PD)in children and AYA wtih newly diagnosed EFT, OS and Hodgkin lymphoma, where PD is measured by:
    - worst grade of neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, or mucositis in cycle 1 of chemotherapy
    - tumour response (on imaging, and resection specimen of EFT and OS patients undergoing surgery).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The worst grade of neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, or mucositis will be evaluated at the end of cycle 1 of chemotherapy.
    Tumour response will be evaluated by imaging at the first imaging time point as specified by the standard treatment schedule for the different tumours; and by surgery which is carried out after the initial block of chemotherapy for EFT and OS as specified buy the standard treatment schedule.
