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   41449   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6808   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) .

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    The patients were selected in the Pediatric and Neurosurgery consultations of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra. Patients were recruited between 09-30-14 (first patient) and 10-30-17 (last patient). Screening failures were two patients with CNS tumors that turned out to be low grade, the exclusion criterion set by the trial.

    Treatment
    Arm description
    The time of administration of the vaccines is different for each type of tumor. After surgery, treatment for advanced sarcomas includes cycles of chemotherapy every three weeks (x6) that are given concomitantly with vaccines. The administration of vaccines includes 4 vaccines every three weeks 4 vaccines every two months and 4 vaccines every three months. The rest of the vaccines are given without chemotherapy. For CNS tumors, after surgery, treatment consists of radiation therapy plus chemotherapy. Chemotherapy cycles will be given every 3 weeks (x5). The administration of the vaccines includes 4 vaccines every three weeks, 4 vaccines every two months, and 4 vaccines every three months. The rest of the vaccines are given without chemotherapy.
