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   35504   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5838   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
    The objective is to examine the use of non-invasive focused magnetic brain stimulation (focused TMS) as a method to potentiate the effect of chemotherapeutic treatment of GBM (TMS electrochemotherapy). Patients with debut of GBM will receive TMS as supplementary treatment to standard post-operative chemotherapy and concomitant radiotherapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    N/A
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Age 18 years or older
    2. Newly diagnosed and histologically confirmed GBM
    3. MGMT gene methylation
    4. If age < 70 years: Eligability for and ability to comply with the Stupp [4] chemo-radiotherapy regimen.
    5. If age > 70: Eligibility for stand alone chemotherapeutic treatment (without radiotherapy).
    6. Ability to comply with the proposed TMS treatment.
    7. Use of validated anti-conception for fertile female participants in concordance with guidelines provided by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Pregnancy or nursing. Fertile female participants will be required to take a validated pregnancy test for evaluation of pregnancy.
    2. Conditions that may contraindicate the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (see Safety Summary for Cervel Neurotech Clinical rTMS Devices, and Cervel Neurotech rTMS System User Manual). Specifically this will include the represent of magnetic implants in the brain, uncontrollable symptomatic epilepsy refractory to standard medication, lack of ability to comply with TMS treatment.
    3. Implanted pacemaker or metal contraindicating the use of MRI-scan.
    4. Participation in clinical trials, which may by the investigators’ opinion interfere with or compromise treatment efficacy or safety or the interpretation and reliability of results.

    E.8.8 Definition of the end of the trial and justification where it is not the last visit of the last subject undergoing the trial
    Patients will be followed for 2 years or until death occurs. The experiments will be terminated when all enrolled participants have either 1) finished scheduled follow-up, 2) been excluded from the trial or 3) withdrawn consent for participation. In the case that a patient experiences unacceptable discomfort, complications or adverse effects from TMS treatment individual assessment will be performed to determine whether the subject should be excluded.
