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.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Prostate cancer which has become resistant to hormone treatment

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To explore the impact of atorvastatin on androgen receptor signalling in castration-resistant prostate cancer.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To study the impact of atorvastatin on the status of intermediates of androgen biosynthesis pathway in castration-resistant prostate cancer.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1) Histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the prostate (patients may or may not have evidence of metastatic disease)
    2) Disease progression despite on-going castration therapy (either using LHRH analogue or prior surgical orchiectomy) as judged by rising serial PSA measurements: This will be based on a series of at least 3 readings each taken at least 7 days apart. The 3rd reading must be ≥2 ng/ml. In the event where an intermediate reading is lower than a previous reading, then the patient will still be eligible (i.e. the 3 readings do not need to be consecutive). In patients who have received prior bicalutamide, flutamide or nilutamide, PSA progression must be proven after withdrawal of this drug.
    3) Castrate levels of serum testosterone (<1.7 nmol/l)
    4) Ongoing castration therapy (either LHRH analogue or prior orchiectomy).
    5) No therapy with statins or other cholesterol-lowering drug during a 2-month period prior to initiation of trial medication.
    6) Male aged 18 or over
    7) Life expectancy greater than 6 months
    8) Adequate hepatic, bone marrow coagulation and renal function as defined by the following criteria:
    a. Haemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL
    b. Platelets > 100 x 109L
    c. Creatinine <2 x ULN
    d. Hepatic function: total bilirubin ≤ 2 x ULN; ALT and AST ≤ 3 x ULN
    e. Creatine kinase ,≤ 5 x ULN
    f. Fasting glucose ≤ 5.6 mmol/L
    g. Prothrombin time ≤ 1.5 x ULN; APTT ≤ 1.5 x ULN
    h. Platelets ≥ 100

    9) Willingness to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plans and laboratory tests and other trial procedures
    10) Ability to swallow oral medications
    11) Willing to undergo two biopsies for research purposes with a lesion (either primary or secondary) amenable to biopsy.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1) Uncontrolled hypertension (defined as systolic ≥ 170mmHg and/or diastolic ≥ 100 mmHg despite optimal therapy)
    2) The requirement for strong opiates to control cancer related pain; codeine and tramadol are
    permitted
    3) NYHA class III or IV heart failure or Childs-Pugh liver failure class B or worse
    4) Patients with symptomatic or radiographic disease progression (Note: Imaging studies will not be conducted specifically to meet this criterion but only if clinically indicated in accordance with standard of care)
    5) Other severe or uncontrolled systemic disease or evidence of any other significant disorder or lab finding that makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the trial
    6) History of physical or psychiatric disorder that would prevent informed consent and compliance with protocol, or any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical consideration potentially hampering compliance with the trial protocol and follow up schedule.
    7) Administration of any investigational drug within 28 days of receiving the first dose of trial treatment
    8) Major surgery within 28 days prior to trial entry
    9) Active condition which affects drug absorption (e.g. prior gastrectomy or active peptic ulcer disease)
    10) Planned change in systemic therapy for 6 weeks after study initiation
    11) Planned requirement for radiotherapy or surgery for 6 weeks after study initiation
    12) Prior hypersensitivity to atorvastatin or its constituents
    13) Requirement for on-going anti-coagulant therapy (including heparins and warfarin)
    14) Prior systemic therapy for CRPC with cytotoxic chemotherapy, abiraterone or enzalutamide. For clarity, docetaxel for non-castration resistant disease is permitted.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Assessment of the change in PSA levels from baseline during the treatment period, where a responder is any patient which achieves a ≥50% drop from baseline in PSA levels at any time over the 6-week period of statins treatment (PSA response).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    As above, the evaluation period will be the six week treatment period.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1)Maximum percentage drop in PSA level
    2)Maximum change in testosterone level
    3)Change in adrenal steroid DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) levels

    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
