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   42572   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7010   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)
    The primary endpoints of this study are overall survival (OS) and
    radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS).
    Overall survival (OS) is defined as the time from randomization to the
    time of death from any cause and radiographic progression-free survival
    (rPFS) defined as the time from randomization to the radiographic
    progression or death.
    Radiographic progression is defined according to an adapted version of
    Prostate Cancer Working Group 2 (PCWG2) criteria (either a RECISTprogression in case of measurable lesions or the appearance of at least 2
    new lesions on bone scan). In contrast to PCWG2 criteria, a second bone
    scan is not mandatory to confirm radiographic progression. The date of
    radiographic progression will be the date of progression as per the above
    It should be noted that a patient can enter the post-CRPC follow up if
    progressive disease has been established by a PSA rise only, without
    radiographic progressive disease. In this scenario, imaging monitoring
    will continue every 6 months and radiographic progression may be
    established later.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Not applicable
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •Castration resistance free survival (CRFS) is defined as the time from
    randomization to the castrate-resistant (CRPC) status or death from any
    CRPC is defined by cancer progression (either a confirmed PSA rise or a
    radiographic progression) with serum testosterone being at castrated
    levels (<0.50 ng/mL).
    A PSA rise is defined by an increased serum PSA on 2 different
    measurements, confirmed by a third measurement (measurement
    A<B<C). The minimum level of the third PSA measurement should be 0.5
    A minimum delay of 2 weeks is recommended between measurements A
    and B. A delay of 3 months is recommended between measurement B
    and C. The date of progression will be the date of measurement C.
    Serum testosterone should be obtained when PSA measurement C is
    In case of progression while serum testosterone is > 0.50 ng/mL, the
    patient should be rapidly submitted to another method of castration
    (chemical or surgical) and PSA + testosterone should be tested again to
    confirm or not CRPC progression.
    Radiographic progression is defined as per the above definition.
    For patients alive without radiographic progression or confirmed PSA
    rise at the time of analysis, data will be censored at the date of last
    • Serious Genitourinary event-free survival (S-GU-EFS) is defined as
    the time from randomization to the first occurrence of one of the
    following events : urinary retention with need for a urinary catheter,
    suprapubic catheter, double J stent, nephrostomy, treatment of the
    prostate by radiotherapy (except that by randomization in arms C and D)
    or trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP), prostatectomy or
    death. It is assumed that prostate radiotherapy (and abiraterone) may
    prevent or delay these serious genitourinary events. For patients alive
    without Serious Genitourinary Event at the time of analysis, data will be
    censored at the date of last follow-up.
    • The prostate cancer-specific survival will be calculated from the date
    of randomization to the date of the death due to prostate cancer. For
    patients alive at the time of analysis, or who died from a cause other
    than prostate cancer, data will be censored at the date of last follow-up,
    • The time to next skeletal-related event will be defined by either a
    fracture or a bone pain requiring radiation therapy or a spinal cord
    compression or a preventive surgery to the bones. Events will be
    evaluated by investigators. No systematic X-Ray will be perform
    • PSA response rate will be assessed using a waterfall plot. Complete
    PSA response is defined by an undetectable serum PSA level (<0.2
    • The prospective correlative study of PSA response/progression will
    be evaluate at 8 months after initiation of ADT,
    The time to pain progression will be evaluated by questionnaires
    (BPI-SF) and calculated from the date of randomization to the first date
    the patient experiences a BPI-SF increase by ≥ 30% from baseline in the
    BPI-SF worst pain intensity (items 3) observed at 2 consecutive
    evaluations ≥ 4 weeks apart.
    • The time to chemotherapy will be calculated from the date of
    randomization to the date of the first use of chemotherapy treatment for
    • Quality of life will be evaluated using the FACT-P and QLQ-C30
    • Toxicity (with a specific focus on the use of long-term low-dose
    steroids) will be evaluated according to NCI-CTCAE v4.0
    • Bone loss will be evaluated by bone mineral density (BMD) to
    determine if patients receiving Abiraterone acetate and prednisone
    and/or radiotherapy have an increase risk
    • Correlation of biomarkers with outcome, including the prognostic and
    predictive value on OS, rPFS and CRFS of a neuro-endocrine
    differentiation of the prostate cancer in the pathological specimen.
