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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    2. Patients with uncontrolled adrenal insufficiency.
    3. Patients with known history of testing positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or known acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
    4. Patients with positive tests for hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBV sAg) or hepatitis C virus ribonucleic acid (HCV RNA) indicating active or chronic infection.
    5. Patients having received prior therapy with anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-PD-L2, anti-CD137, or anti-CTLA-4 antibody (or any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T-cell co-stimulation or checkpoint pathways).

    7. Patients receiving anti-cancer therapies must be discontinued at least 4 weeks prior to administration of study drug. Palliative, focal radiation therapy, and immunosuppressive doses of systemic corticosteroids must be discontinued at least 2 weeks before administration of study drug.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of this study is the incidence for high-grade (CTCAE v4.0 Grade 3-4 and Grade 5) adverse reactions of interest (i.e. adverse event related to study treatment).
    The adverse reactions of interest are: skin, endocrinopathy, gastrointestinal, hepatic, renal, pulmonary, and hypersensitivity adverse events.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The main secondary endpoints of the study are :
    • The median time to onset, median time to resolution (Grade 3-4) of adverse reactions of interest.
    • The percentage of patients who received immune modulating concomitant medication (e.g., corticosteroids, infliximab, cyclophosphamide, IVIG, and mycophenolate mofetil), or hormonal replacement therapy, the percentage of patients who received ≥ 40 mg prednisone or equivalent, total duration of all immune modulating medications given for the select event and summary of patients with resolution of AEs after initiating these therapies.
    • The efficacy data assessed by measuring the OS and ORR. These endpoints are defined as follows:
    o OS is defined as the time from first dosing date to the date of death. A patient who has not died will be censored at last known date alive. OS will be followed continuously while patients are on the treatment and every 3 months via in-person or phone contact after patients discontinue the study drug.
    o Objective response rate (ORR) is defined as the number and percentage of patients with a Best Overall Response (BOR) of confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR). Best overall response (BOR) is defined as the best response designation, recorded between the date of first dose and the date of the initial objectively documented tumor progression per RECIST v1.1 or the date of subsequent therapy, whichever occurs first. For Patients without documented progression or subsequent therapy, all available response designations will contribute to the BOR determination.
