Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43424   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7183   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Activity of AFM13 in patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma after failure of standard therapy including the anti-CD30 immunoconjugate brentuximab vedotin (BV). In this heavily pretreated patient group BV results in a response rate of about 70%; but in most patients the duration of the response is rather short. The reported median PFS was 5.6 months. Therefore, there still is a need for a new treatment option in this heavily pretreated, chemotherapy refractory patient group
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    AFM13 will be investigated in patients still suffering from Hodgkin lymphoma after standard therapy including the antibody brentuximab vedotin.
