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   42564   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Het primaire doen van de studie is om de haalbaarheid en beeldkwaliteit van hoge resolutie Tc99m-SestaMIBI opnamen voor de detectie, lokalisatie en kwantificatie van resectie marges in borstkanker preparaten.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Assess the accuracy of detection, localisation, and quantification of resection margins in breast cancer specimens imaged by U-SPECT+/CT.
    • Optimization of imaging using U-SPECT+/CT of tissue samples considering the dose, scan-time, acquisition, reconstruction, and filtering.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The main study endpoint is a series of high-resolution images of 6 breast cancer specimens. The images are visually scored for quality.
    • The outcome is that experienced specialist trained in the assessment of SPECT scans rate the image quality and determine if it is acceptable and useful.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    This endpoint is determined after the acquisition and optimization of the SPECT/CT scan.
    After LVLS.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • Endpoint: Assessment of the margins takes place based on the obtained images. Areas with positive signal suspect for tumour explicitly in the area of the margins are communicated to the pathologist. By relating the pathology slices and images to the SPECT/CT images the image accuracy for margin detection are determined.
    o The outcome will be accuracy in mm and a visual determined correlation of pathology images with the SPECT/CT images.
    • Endpoint: By using the list mode of the U=SPECT and reconstruct images at different acquisition times a minimal injected dose can be determined. By the same list mode the optimal scan-time can also be evaluated. Acquisition, reconstruction, and filtering options can be compared to determine the optimal settings.
    o The outcome will be a minimal dose in MBq, a minimal scan-time, and the advised scan and reconstruction parameters.
    • Endpoint: The U-SPECT+/CT will image the SestaMIBI distribution within the specimen and the I-125 seed is visible too. A comparison between the SestaMIBI in the specimen, the I-125 seed, and the resection margins can be made.
    o Outcome values are the distance of the I-125-seed to the tumour border in mm, the distance between the centre of the tumour according to the SestaMIBI distribution and the location of the I-125-seed in mm.
    • Endpoint: The image quality of the preoperative images will determine if it is feasible and if further research is possible to use mobile gamma cameras for scintigraphic breast cancer imaging.
    o The level of lesion localisation (detection rate) and correlation to other imaging techniques will be the outcome of this secondary study parameter.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    All endpoints are evaluated after acquisition of the images. After LVLS
