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   43925   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7306   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objectives of the Phase 1 portion of Study DACOGENAML2004 are:
    •to determine the maximum tolerable dose (MTD) of cytarabine (up to 2 g/m2 per day x 5) that can be administered on Days 8-12 following treatment with DACOGEN 20 mg/m2 per day on Days 1-5 of a 28-day cycle.
    •to determine PK parameters including maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), Area under the concentration x time curve (AUC), time to maximum plasma concentration (tmax), and clearance (Cl) of decitabine on Day 5 of Cycle 1.
    The primary objective of the Phase 2 portion of Study DACOGENAML2004 is to determine the response rate (CR + CRi) in children with relapsed or refractory AML when treated with DACOGEN 20 mg/m2 per day on Days 1-5 followed by cytarabine at the determined MTD on Days 8-12 for up to 4 cycles of treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are to evaluate the safety profile of DACOGEN 20 mg/m2 per day administered on Days 1 to 5 allowed by cytarabine on Days 8 to 12 for up to 4 cycles of therapy and to describe the duration of CR + CRi and evaluate the overall response (CR + CRi + PR) to treatment.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Phase 1:
    For the Phase 1 portion of the study the primary endpoint will be DLT in the determination of the MTD (up to 2 g/m2 per day) of cytarabine given on Days 8 to 12 following the administration of DACOGEN at 20 mg/m2 on Days 1 to 5. DLTs are defined as the following
    • Hematological DLT will be defined as failure to recover to an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) of 0.5 x 109/L (common terminology criteria for adverse events [CTCAE] Grade
    3) and non-transfusion dependent platelet count of 25 x 109/L (CTCAE Grade 3) due to documented bone marrow aplasia/hypoplasia (malignant infiltration or other cause excluded), by Day 42. Bone marrow aplasia/hypoplasia is defined as overall marrow cellularity less than 25%.
    •Non-hematological DLT is defined as: any Grade ≥3 toxicity possibly, probably or definitely related to study drug that persists for >5 days; any Grade 2 toxicity that persists for >7 days and that is intolerable to the patient.

    Phase 2:
    In the Phase 2 portion of this study the primary end point will be the CR +CRi rate as determined using IWG criteria. The response status of each patient will be determined prior to each cycle of DACOGEN + cytarabine after the first cycle. The best response up to 4 cycles of DACOGEN + cytarabine for each subject will be used to determine the rate of CR + CRi.

    Please refer to Page 40 & 41 of Protocol.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Up to 4 cycles of treatment.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Safety profile of DACOGEN 20 mg/m2 per day on Days 1-5 followed by cytarabine Days 8-12 for up to 4 cycles of therapy.
    • Duration of CR + CRi
    • Overall response (CR + CRi + PR)
    • Event-free survival (EFS), defined as the time from first dose of study drug to relapse from CR, death, or second malignancy for subjects who achieve CR; subjects who do not achieve CR will be considered to have an event on the day of the first dose of study drug. Other alternative EFS definitions may be considered.
    •Overall survival
    •To determine the PK profile of DACOGEN in children with AML

    Other Secondary Endpoints:
    •To explore pharmacodynamic effects of DACOGEN with respect to DNA
    hypomethylation status and gene expression
    •To explore predictive markers for response to DACOGEN.
    • Levels of DACOGEN in the CSF if samples are collected as part of other required medical care.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Time of progression/relapse, withdrawal, or death, for up to 3 years after last participant enrolment.
