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   32951   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5327   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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The aim of this randomized phase II study is to collect data on activity, safety and quality of life of trabectedin therapy in patients with recurrent high-grade meningioma and to investigate whether trabectedin demonstrates sufficient antitumor activity against recurrent grade II or III to justify further investigation in phase III or as adjuvant therapy for newly diagnosed disease after resection and radiotherapy.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    ♦Age 18 or older.
    ♦Histological diagnosis of WHO grade II (chordoid meningioma, clear

    Patients of childbearing / reproductive potential should use adequate
    birth control measures, as defined below, during the study treatment
    period and for at least 3 months after the last study treatment. Men who
    are fertile must use effective contraception during treatment with
    trabectedin and for 5 months thereafter. Methods that can achieve a
    failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and
    correctly are considered as highly effective birth control methods. Such
    methods include:

    ♦ intrauterine hormone-releasing system ( IUS)
    ♦ bilateral tubal occlusion
    ♦ vasectomised partner
    ♦ sexual abstinence
    ♦ Acceptable birth control methods that result in a failure rate of more
    than 1% per year include:

    ovulation is not the primary mode of action
    ♦ male or female condom with or without spermicide
    ♦ cap, diaphragm or sponge with spermicide

    condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and
    follow-up schedule; those conditions should be discussed with the
    patient before registration in the trial
    ♦Before patient randomization, written informed consent must be given
    according to ICH/GCP, and national/local regulations.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria

    (except adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, clinicaly
    localized and very low risk prostate cancer, and adequately treated
    cervical intraepithelial neoplasia).
    ♦Serious illness or medical conditions, specifically: active infectious
    process; chronic active liver disease, including chronic hepatitis B, C or
    ♦ Concomitant use of any other investigational agent, phenytoin, or

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    1. Progression Free Survival (PFS)
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    1. PFS will be measured from the date of randomization until the date of first objective progression or the date of patient's death whichever occurs first. Patients without evidence of progression will be censored at the last follow-up visit date. If a patient received a second anti-tumoral therapy without prior documentation of disease progression, the patient will be censored at the date of starting new anti-tumoral therapy.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Progression Free Survival at 6 months (PFS-6), median PFS (mPFS)
    2. Best overall response (BOR). Objective response (CR/PR), rate and median duration. Complete response (CR), rate and median duration.
    3. Overall survival (OS), OS probability at 6 (OS6) and 12 months (OS12), median OS (mOS)
    4. Safety (CTCAE v.4.0)
    5. Health-related Quality of life (HRQol)
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    1.PFS-6 will be measured from the date of randomization until the date of first objective progression or the date of patient's death whichever occurs first.
    2.BOR will be measured from date of randomization until disease progression.CR/PR will be measured similar to PFS but starting from the time measurement criteria for CR/PR are first met.
    3.From date of randomiwation up t the date of death (any cause).For patients still alive or lost to f/up at the time of analysis, survival will be censored at lastf/upvisitdate.
    4.From the randomization until 30 days after last protocol treatment administration; or until the start of a new antitumor therapy.
