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   38893   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6392   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To broaden the understanding of molecular characterization of the melanoma in correlation to the clinical response (defined as partial response according to RECIST) at week 8 of targeted therapy in differently pre-treated patients with advanced/metastatic BRAF V600 mutation-positive cutaneous melanoma
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To correlate the tumor´s molecular composition to metabolic responses and biological effects on the downstream signaling cascade in order to get first insights into an adaptive mechanism in the downstream signaling of an oncogenic driver mutation upon its selective inhibition.
    Further secondary objectives are
    - Safety / toxicity according to the CTC Criteria (Version 4.0)
    - Efficacy according to RECIST criteria
    - Progression free survival rate at 6 and 12 months
    - Exploration of effects of rechallenge
