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   41018   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6709   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    - Characterization of events of insertional mutagenesis leading to clonal dominance or leukemia
    -Laboratory tests as specified

    Efficacy evaluations will be performed throughout the study and longterm efficacy will be assessed, as feasible, based on data collected in this study.
    Gli endpoint di sicurezza includono:
    • Sopravvivenza complessiva
    • Tutti gli EA correlati al prodotto medicinale fino all’Anno 15 post-HSCT
    • Tutti i SAE fino all’Anno 15 post-HSCT (indipendentemente dalla
    correlazione con il prodotto medicinale)
    • Incidenza di RCL derivati dal vettore, valutata dai campioni d’archivio
    come clinicamente indicato
    • Caratterizzazione degli eventi di mutagenesi inserzionale che conducono
    a dominanza clonale o leucemia
    • Esami di laboratorio come specificato

    Le valutazioni di efficacia saranno eseguite per tutta la durata dello studio e
    l’efficacia a lungo termine sarà valutata, se fattibile, in base ai dati raccolti durante
    questo studio.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Follow-up visits are scheduled every 6 months through Year 5 (Month 60) post-transplant, and then annually thereafter through Year 15 post-transplant.
