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   33753   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5466   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To collect comparative data for LONQUEX®, Neulasta® and placebo in patients with advanced squamous or non-squamous NSCLC Stage IIIB/IV, including full details of disease progression (whether or not leading to death) and mortality, for detailed clinical review.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To explore the potential correlation between genetic polymorphisms in germline DNA specimens and response to LONQUEX® (eg, efficacy, pharmacokinetics, tolerability, and safety features) compared with placebo/comparator.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    -Signed and dated written informed consent is obtained

    -The patient is a man or woman, aged 18 to 75 years

    - Patients must have a histologically or cytologically confirmed, unresectable, advanced or metastatic (Stage IIIB/IV per American Joint Committee on Cancer [AJCC] 7th edition of tumors, nodes, and metastases classification of malignant tumors [TNM] staging) squamous or non-squamous (adenocarcinoma plus large cells) NSCLC

    - The patient has at least non-measurable but evaluable disease lesion per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1.

    - The patient is planned and eligible to receive a maximum of 6 cycles of the predefined cisplatin/pemetrexed, or cisplatin/docetaxel, or paclitaxel/cisplatin CTX

    - Have a life-expectancy of at least 18 weeks, according to the investigator’s assessment

    - The patient is CTX naïve. Patients who received CTX in neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting, treated >12 months ago, will be eligible

    - Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤2

    - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1.5 × 109/L

    - Platelets ≥100 × 109/L

    - Adequate hepatic, cardiac, bone marrow and renal function (creatinine clearance ≥45 mL/min per the standard Cockroft Gault formula) for the chosen CTX (cisplatin/pemetrexed, or cisplatin/docetaxel, or paclitaxel/cisplatin) regimen.

    - Women of childbearing potential (not surgically sterile or 2 years postmenopausal) must use a medically accepted method of contraception and must agree to continue use of this method for the duration of the 6 CTX cycles and for 30 days after discontinuation of study drug. Acceptable methods of contraception include intrauterine device (IUD), steroidal contraceptive (oral, implanted, transdermal, or injected), barrier method with spermicide, partner vasectomy, and abstinence throughout the study (ie, true abstinence: when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. [periodic abstinence (eg, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods), declaration of abstinence for the duration of a trial, and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception]).

    - The patient, if a man, is surgically sterile, or, if capable of producing offspring, is currently using an approved method of birth control and agrees to continued use of this method for the duration of the 6 CTX cycles (and for 90 days after taking the last dose of study drug because of the possible effects on spermatogenesis). Acceptable methods of contraception include abstinence (ie, true abstinence as detailed above), female partner’s use of an acceptable method of contraception (as described above), or if female partner is surgically sterile or 2 years post-menopausal. In addition, male patients may not donate sperm for the duration of the 6 CTX cycles and for 90 days after taking study drug.

    - The patient must be willing and able to comply with study restrictions and to remain at the clinic for the required duration during the study period, and willing to return to the clinic for the follow-up evaluation as specified in this protocol.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Previous exposure to filgrastim, pegfilgrastim or lenograstim or other granulocyte colony stimulating factors (G-CSFs) in clinical development less than 6 months before randomization

    - Participation in a clinical trial within 30 days or 5 half-lives of the investigational product before randomization, whichever is longer

    - Known hypersensitivity to filgrastim, pegfilgrastim, lenograstim, cisplatin, pemetrexed, docetaxel or paclitaxel

    - Patient meeting any contraindication for the chosen CTX regimen

    - Patient to be treated with combined CTX/radiotherapy during the foreseen participation in this study

    - Prior radiation therapy for lung cancer if not recovered from all toxicities related to this therapy

    - Tumor surgery within 4 weeks before randomization

    - Prior bone marrow or stem cell transplantation

    - Progressive brain metastases

    - Prior malignancy (other than NSCLC) within the preceding 5 years other than non-melanoma skin cancer or in situ cervical carcinoma

    - The patient is a pregnant or lactating woman. (Any woman becoming pregnant during the study will be withdrawn from the study.)

    − Documentation of neutropenic sepsis, ie, a sepsis in combination with an ANC value <0.5 × 109/L.
