Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43839   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7280   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    15) If receiving a bisphosphonate or denosumab, dose must have been stable for at least 2 doses before inclusion,
    16) Patient agreeing to use effective contraception during and for ≥ 6 months after completion of study treatment,
    17) Patient able to comply with the protocol,

    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - Objective response rate (ORR)
    The Objective response is defined as complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) according to RECIST criteria v1.1.
    - Duration of overall response (DoR)
    The DoR is defined as the time from documentation of tumour response (CR/PR) to disease progression, according to RECIST criteria v1.1.
    - Overall Survival (OS)
    The OS is defined as the time from the first administration of abiraterone acetate to death from any cause.
    - Progression-free survival (PFS)
    The PFS is defined as the time from the first administration of abiraterone acetate to progression (or death of any cause, whichever occurs first

    - Evaluation of Toxicity
    Safety will be evaluated by type, frequency and severity of adverse drug reactions according to NCI-CTC (v4.0): In order to be considered evaluable for toxicity, patients should have received at least one dose of treatment.
