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   35419   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5814   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.

    13. Be able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.

    * True abstinence is acceptable when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. (Periodic abstinence [eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, postovulation methods] and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception).

    2. Presence of or history ofmetastatic or locally recurrent pancreatic adenocarcinoma

    3. Any other malignancy within 5 years prior to randomization, with the exception of

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)

    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Disease recurrence will be determined by the independent radiological
    review of CT or MRI scans. Subjects who received new anti-cancer
    therapy or cancer-related surgery prior to disease recurrence or death
    will be censored. Detailed censoring rules will be documented in the
    SAP.
    The survival distribution of DFS will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The secondary efficacy endpoint will be OS which is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Subjects who are alive will be censored on the last-known-to be- alive date.
