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   37504   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6153   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.

    To visualize and quantify androgen receptor and estrogen receptor expression by PET imaging with the tracers 18F-FDHT and 18F-FES respectively.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - To describe the number of lesions detected on PET imaging compared to standard staging with CT-scan and bone scintigraphy.
    - To describe the inter- and intra-patient variation in tracer uptake.
    - To evaluate the inter-observer variation in FES PET and FDHT PET results in two independent observers.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Metastatic breast cancer, with at least one known metastasis outside of the liver
    2. Presence of a lesion that is safely accessible for tumor biopsy (may be liver lesion)
    3. Postmenopausal status defined as one of the following:
    a. age ≥60 years
    b. previous bilateral oophorectomy
    c. age <60 years and amenorrhea for >12 months in the absence of interfering hormonal therapies (such as LH-RH agonists and ER-antagonists)
    d. patients age <60 years using an ER-antagonist should have amenorrhea for > 12 months and FSH >24 U/L and LH >14 U/L
    e. patient age <60 years using LH-RH agonists should continue LH-RH-agonists until after the PET procedures
    4. Initially ER-positive tumor histology.
    5. ECOG performance status 0-2.
    6. Signed written informed consent
    7. Able to comply with the protocol
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Use of estrogen receptor ligands, including tamoxifen, fulvestrant or estrogens, or androgen receptor ligands, during the 6 weeks before entry into the study
    2. Life-expectancy ≤ 3 months
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The sensitivity and specificity of qualitatively scored FDHT PET will be calculated using immunohistochemistry of a biopsied lesion as golden standard. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis will be used to determine the quantitative threshold (SUVmax/mean) that optimally differentiates between AR-positive and AR-negative lesions. For FES PET, a threshold of tumor SUVmax 1.5 has previously been proposed to optimally differentiate between ER-positive and negative (with regard to response to endocrine therapy). We will prospectively evaluate this threshold to dichotomize FES PET results, and also use ROC analysis to re-evaluate the most optimal threshold.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    All study procedures (2 PET scans and 1 biopsy) will be performed within an 8 week timeframe for each individual patient.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Heterogeneity of tumor 18F-FDHT- and 18F-FES-uptake will be described using CT and bone scan as golden standard for metastases. Inter- and intra-patient heterogeneity of 18F-FDHT- and 18F-FES-uptake will be described and coefficient of variance will be calculated. PET will qualitatively and quantitatively be analysed by two independent observers (one from UMCG and one from VUMC). Inter-observer variation for qualitative and quantitative PET results will be calculated.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    All study procedures (2 PET scans and 1 biopsy) will be performed within an 8 week timeframe for each individual patient.
