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   37700   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6178   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.

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    Patients were identified from the oesophagogastric MDT meetings. Included were adult patients with a proven histological diagnosis of oesophagogastric adenocarcinoma, anaemia (<12 g/dL in women and <13 g/dL in men) and a treatment decision for palliative chemotherapy.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    Patients were randomised 1:1 to each group using random allocations concealed in opaque envelopes. Patients in the control arm had their anaemia managed by traditional regimens as decided by the clinical oncology team. The patients in the intravenous iron group received intravenous iron isomaltoside 1000 (Monofer ®). Doses were calculated using the

    The study intervention treatment is intravenous Iron Isomaltoside 1000 (Monofer ®) (IIM). It will be administered in line with the product Summary of Product Characteristics Guidelines (SPC). Doses will be calculated by the Ganzoni equation of cumulative iron deficit. To replenish iron stores by a single infusion, doses up to 20mg/kg body weight of iron may be administered per week. The IIM is diluted in 250ml 0.9% sodium chloride and infused over a period of 60 minutes. The patient will be observed by clinical staff during the administration of the drug.
