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   43881   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7295   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy variable is the rate of MR4.5 at 24 months of study treatment measured in a standardized EUTOS MR4.5 laboratory. MR4.5 is defined as either (i) detectable disease ≤ 0.0032% BCR-ABLIS or (ii) undetectable disease in cDNA with 32 000 – 99 999 ABL1 transcripts or 77 000 – 239 999 GUSB transcripts.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    evaluation will take place for all patients after 24 months of study treatment
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    MR4 (IS)
    - MR4 (IS) is defined in this study as either (i) detectable disease ≤0.01% BCR-ABLIS or (ii) undetectable disease in cDNA with 10 000 – 31 999 ABL1 transcripts or 24.000 – 76 999 GUSB transcripts.
    - The rate of MR4 (IS) at 24 months of study treatment will be computed by dividing the number of patients who fit the definition of response at 24 months by the total number of patients in the analysis set.
    - MMR is defined as a ≥3 log reduction from the standardized baseline or ≤ 0.1% BCR-ABLIS
    - The rate of MMR at 12 months of study treatment will be computed by dividing the number of patients who fit the definition of response at 12 months by the total number of patients in the analysis set
    - Complete cytogenetic response is defined as 0% Ph+ metaphases
    - Rate of CCyR at 6 months of study treatment will be calculated by dividing the number of patients who fit the definition of response at 6 month by the total number of Ph+ patients in the analysis set
    - Time to progression to AP/BC is defined as the time from the date of start of study treatment to the date of earliest transformation to AP/BC, or CML-related death. Rates of progression at various time points will also be provided.
    - Progression-free survival is defined as the time from the date of start of study treatment to the date of event defined as the first documented disease progression to AP/BC or the date of death from any cause, whichever is earlier.
