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   38179   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6271   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The 6-month non progression rate will be summarized by treatment arm by a proportion together with its 95% confidence interval. It will be compared between the two arms using a Fisher exact test.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    After 6 months of chemotherapy +/- bavacizumab
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Progression-free survival (PFS) will be measured from the date of randomization to the date of event defined as the first documented progression or death due to any cause. Patients with no event at the time of the analysis will be censored at the date of the last adequate tumour assessment. PFS will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. patients with adverse events (AE) any type and any grade using the NCI-CTC AE scale version 4.0

    Overall survival (OS) will be measured from the date of randomization to the date of death or the date of last contact (censored data) and will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.
    Median OS will be presented in each treatment arm with its 95% confidence interval. Survival curves will be compared using the log-rank test.

    The objective response rate (complete or partial response) will be presented in each treatment arm by a proportion together with its 95% confidence interval and will be compared between the two arms using a Fisher exact test.

    Duration of response will apply only to patients with an objective tumour response. It will be measured from the date of documented objective response to the date of event defined as the first documented progression or death due to underlying disease. Patients with no event at the time of the analysis will be censored at the date of last adequate tumour assessment. Duration of response will be described in each treatment arm and compared between the two arms using a non parametric Wilcoxon test.

    Safety analyses will be based mainly on the frequency of adverse events based on the common toxicity criteria (CTC-V3) grade. Descriptive statistics will be provided for characterizing and assessing patient tolerance to bevacizumab. Adverse events will be coded according to the MedDRA®.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    In each treatment arm, PFS rate will be evaluated at 6 months,
    OS evaluation after 54 months
