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   38470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6318   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary efficacy objective of the study is to evaluate the relationship between best bone marrow blast response and overall survival in MDS patients with excess blasts (5-30%) progressing on or after treatment with azacitidine or decitabine. Bone marrow blast response is defined as BM complete response (BMCR), ≥ 50% BM blast decrease from pretreatment value, or stable BM response (no progression) according to the International Working Group (IWG) 2006 criteria.

    • Overall response (complete remission [CR], partial remission [PR], bone marrow complete response [BMCR], and stable disease [SD]) according to 2006 IWG criteria;
    • Hematological improvements (erythroid response [ER], platelet response [PLR] and neutrophil response [NR]) according to 2006 IWG criteria;
    • Improvements of cytogenetics as evaluated by the change in aneuploidy in BM according to 2006 IWG criteria;
    • Progression-free survival;
    • Transition time to AML, where AML is defined as follows:
    - Increase of at least 50% BMBL, and more than 20% BMBL for RAEB-1 and RAEB-2 and CMML patients;
    - Increase of at least 50% BMBL for RAEB-t patients;
    • Quality-of-life (QOL) scores (using EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire [QLQ]-C30 version 3;
