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   43209   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7151   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.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The main objective is to study the effects of targeted PDGFR and cKIT signalling inhibition with imatinib on gene expression profiles of colon tumours with a high chance of having the mesenchymal phenotype.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    I. To measure the extent of inhibition of PDGFR- and cKIT-signalling by treatment with imatinib.
    II. To relate intra-tumoural imatinib pharmacokinetics (PK) to systemic imatinib concentrations.
    III. To relate the level of inhibition of PDGFR/cKIT signalling and the extent of changes in gene expression to the systemic and intra-tumoural PK of imatinib and its active metabolite CGP74588.
    IV. To study changes in tumour load during treatment by measuring the concentrations of plasma-CEA and circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA).
    V. To study the effects of imatinib on organoid-forming potential.
    VI. To study the effects of imatinib on gene and protein expression in an unbiased fashion.
    VII. To assess the safety and tolerability of pre-operative imatinib therapy in patients who will undergo bowel surgery for colon cancer.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the colon;
    2. Confirmed eligibility for surgery with curative intent as deemed by the hospital’s multidisciplinary team (MDT) review;
    3. High intratumoural gene expression of PDGFR-α, PDGFR-β, PDGF-C and KIT according to our diagnostic RT-qPCR test.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    The presence of synchronous distant metastases;
    Current hospital standard of care dictates that patient should undergo any neoadjuvant therapy;
    Concurrent participation in another clinical trial using any medicinal product, or participation in such a trial in the period of three months prior to the current trial;
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    To assess the extent of change in the mesenchymal phenotype, gene expression arrays will be generated from pre- and post-treatment tissue samples and the expression of genes associated with the poor-prognosis mesenchymal subtype will be compared.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Primary endpoints will be analysed in one batch after the last's patients last visit.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    I. Measurement of PDGFR and cKIT inhibition by comparison of the fraction of autophosphorylated PDGFR and cKIT pre-treatment versus post-treatment, measured with ELISA on tissue samples derived from diagnostic biopsies and surgery.
    II. Correlation between plasma imatinib trough levels on day 14 and intratumoural concentration of imatinib in the resection specimen.
    III. Correlation between the extent of PDGFR and cKIT inhibition and systemic and intratumoural imatinib and CGP74588 concentration.
    IV. Alterations in plasma CEA-concentrations and levels of ctDNA before and after treatment.
    V. The ability to establish organoids from imatinib-treated tumours will be compared with the general success rate of organoid formation from colon tumours at the Hubrecht Institute. If organoids can be established from imatinib-treated tumours, these will be further compared with untreated mesenchymal-type tumour-derived organoids, in terms of clone-forming potential and tumour-forming potential.
    VI. Analysis of differentially expressed genes in the pre- and post-treatment samples with several pathway recognition and enrichment tools such as Ingenuity, SPEED and GSEA. Changes in gene expression can be validated using qPCR and/or ELISA.
    VII. The occurrence, frequency and severity of adverse events (AEs) during preoperative treatment with imatinib, peroperatively or in the postoperative period (up to 14 days after tumour resection).
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Occurrence of AEs will be monitored throughout the trial. The remaining analysis will be performed in one batch after the last's patients last visit.
