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 CRPC progression-free survival (PFS).
    Overall survival (OS) is defined as the time from randomization to the time of death from any cause and progression-free survival (PFS) is defined as the time from randomization to the castrate-resistant stage or death of any cause.
    CRPC is defined by cancer progression (either a confirmed PSA rise or a radiological 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 on a third measurement (measurement A<B<C). The minimum level of the third PSA measurement should be 0.5 ng/mL.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    •PSA response rate will be defined by an undetectable serum PSA level at 8 months (after initiation of ADT),
    •The prospective correlative study of PSA response/progression will be evaluate at 8 months after initiation of ADT,
    •The radiological progression-free survival will be defined by RECIST criteria v1.1 or by the appearance of at least 2 new bone metastases on bone scan according to modified PCWG2 criteria or death,
    •The prostate cancer-specific survival will be calculated from the date of randomization to the date of the death due to prostate cancer,
    •The time to pain progression will be evaluated by questionnaires,
    •The time to next skeletal-related event will be defined by even a fracture or bone pain requiring radiation therapy or spinal cord compression or preventive surgery to the bones. Events will be evaluated by investigators. No systematic X-Ray will be perform,
    •The time to chemotherapy will be calculated from the date of randomization to the date of the introduction of chemotherapy treatment for CRPC,
    •The time to severe local symptoms (grade 3 and 4 events) related to tumor progression and/or radiotherapy long term side effets will be evaluated according to NCI-CTCAE v4.0,
    •The impact of the radiotherapy protocol on outcome (PFS and local symptoms),
    •Toxicity (with a specific focus on the use of long-term low-dose steroids) will be evaluated according to NCI-CTCAE v4.0,
