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   42771   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7044   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.

    -To compare the Overall Survival (OS) for nivolumab versus placebo in subjects with tumors expressing PD-L1 (>=1% membranous staining in tumor cells) and all randomized subjects.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. All subjects must be status post radical surgical resection (R0) for Invasive Urothelial Carcinoma performed within 120 days prior to randomization. Subjects with carcinoma in situ in surgical margins are not eligible for study entry.
    2. All subjects must have pathologic evidence of urothelial carcinoma (originating in bladder, ureter, or renal pelvis) at high risk of recurrence based on pathologic staging of radical surgery tissue (see protocol for more details)
    3. Dominant component of histology needs to be urothelial carcinoma or transitional cell carcinoma. Foci of varied histologies (eg. minor variants) are accepted
    4. All subjects must have disease-free status defined as no clinical or radiographic evidence of recurrence of disease documented by a complete physical examination and imaging studies within 4 weeks of randomization. Subjects with equivocal nodes less than 15 mm in short axis may be eligible after discussion with BMS Medical Monitor. All suspect lesions identified during screening radiographic procedures should be discussed with the Medical Monitor prior to randomization. Imaging studies must include CT of chest and CT or MRI of abdomen, pelvis, and all known sites of resected disease including cystoscopy in subjects with upper GU primaries who still have bladder intact. Brain imaging (MRI except where contraindicated in which CT scan is acceptable) must be completed within 4 weeks prior to randomization for subjects with clinical suspicion of CNS disease. Subjects who are found to have high-risk NMIBC at the time of screening are not eligible for study entry.
    Patients with low-risk papillary lesions may enter the study if rendered free of disease at cystoscopy.
    Subjects with intermediate-risk NMIBC may enter the study if intravesical chemotherapy or BCG is not required. Screening cystoscopy may occur within 60 days of randomization and is encouraged to be done prior to other imaging. Any suspect lesions seen on cystoscopy should be biopsied to rule-out the possibility of high-risk lesions.
    5. Tumor tissue from the most recently resected site of disease (preferable) or from the transurethral resection that yielded the initial muscle invasive diagnosis must be provided for biomarker analyses. In order to be randomized, a subject must have a PD-L1 expression level classification (>=1%, < 1%, indeterminate) as determined by the central lab.
    6. Life expectancy >= 6 months
    7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0 or 1. Subjects who have not received cisplatin based neoadjuvant chemotherapy and are considered ineligible for cisplatin adjuvant chemotherapy, may enter the study with ECOG PS 2 (see Appendix 2)
    8. Prior surgery that required general anesthesia must be completed at least 4 weeks before study drug administration. Surgery requiring local/epidural anesthesia must be completed at least 72 hours before study drug administration. TUR must be completed 14 days before randomization.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Partial cystectomy in the setting of bladder cancer primary tumor or partial nephrectomy in the setting of renal pelvis primary tumor.
    2. Adjuvant systemic or radiation therapy for urothelial or prostatic carcinoma following radical surgical resection of urothelial carcinoma.
    3. Any serious or uncontrolled medical disorder that, in the opinion of the investigator, may increase the risk associated with study participation or study drug administration, impair the ability of the subject to receive protocol therapy, or interfere with the interpretation of study results.
    4. Prior malignancy active within the previous 3 years except for locally curable cancers that have been apparently cured, such as basal or squamous cell skin cancer, prostate cancer with evidence of undetectable Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) or carcinoma in situ of the prostate, cervix or breast. Patients with known history of recent metastatic urothelial carcinoma will be excluded.
    5. Subjects with active, known or suspected autoimmune disease. Subjects with vitiligo, type I diabetes mellitus, residual hypothyroidism due to autoimmune condition only requiring hormone replacement, psoriasis not requiring systemic treatment, or conditions not expected to recur in the absence of an external trigger are permitted to enroll.
    6. Subjects with a condition requiring systemic treatment with either corticosteroids (> 10 mg daily prednisone equivalents) or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days of study drug administration. Inhaled or topical steroids and adrenal replacement doses > 10 mg daily prednisone equivalents are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease.
    7. Subjects with history of life-threatening toxicity related to prior immune therapy (eg. anti-CTLA-4 or anti-PD-1/PD-L1 treatment or any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T-cell co-stimulation or immune checkpoint pathways) except those that are unlikely to re-occur with standard countermeasures (eg, hormone replacement after adrenal crisis).
    8. All toxicities attributed to prior anti-cancer therapy other than nephropathy, neuropathy, hearing loss, alopecia and fatigue must have resolved to Grade 1 (NCI CTCAE version 4) or baseline before administration of study drug. Subjects with toxicities attributed to prior anti-cancer therapy which are not expected to resolve and result in long lasting sequelae, such as neuropathy after platinum based therapy, are permitted to enroll. See protocol inclusion criterion 2) i) (5) for renal function eligibility. Neuropathy must have resolved to Grade 2 (NCI CTCAE version 4).
    9. Treatment with any chemotherapy, radiation therapy, biologics for cancer, intravesical therapy, or investigational therapy within 28 days of first administration of study treatment.
