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   43244   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7156   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Main Objectives for the phase III part of the study:
    • To compare overall survival (OS) in patients with locally advanced, inoperable or metastatic esophagogastric adenocarcinoma receiving FOLFIRI with ramucirumab versus paclitaxel with ramucirumab as second line therapy in patients who failed prior taxane-containing therapy in the intent to treat population (ITT) and where OS is defined as the time from randomization to death from any cause
    • To compare Objective Overall Response Rate (ORR) in the groups as described above and where ORR is defined as the proportion of patients with complete or partial remission according to RECIST 1.1

    Main Objective for phase II part of the study:
    OS rate after 6 months, based on an ITT population.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary Objectives for the phase III part of the trial:
    To compare the treatment arms in terms of
    • Disease Control Rate (DCR) as defined as proportion of patients with complete or partial remission or stable disease (CR, PR, SD) according to RECIST 1.1
    • Progression free survival (PFS) defined as the time from randomization to disease progression or death from any cause
    • Quality of life (QoL) as measured by EORTC-QLQ-C30 during treatment and follow-up (until d30 after EOT) and/or until progression, or start of new anticancer therapy.
    Safety Objective for phase II and III:
    • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ramucirumab plus FOLFIRI or paclitaxel

    Secondary Objectives for the phase II part of the study:
    To compare treatment arms with respect to
    • Progression-free survival
    • Objective response rate (CR + PR)
    • Tumor control rate (CR, PR, SD)
    • Assessment of quality of life during treatment and follow-up.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Signed written informed consent
    2. Male or female* ≥ 18 years of age; Patients in reproductive age must be willing to use adequate contraception during the study and for 3 months after the end of ramucirumab treatment (appropriate contraception is defined as surgical sterilization (e.g. bilateral tubal ligation, vasectomy), hormonal contraception (implantable, patch, oral), and double-barrier methods (any double combination of: IUD, male or female condom with spermicidal gel, diaphragm, sponge, cervical cap)). Female patients with childbearing potential need to have a negative pregnancy test within 7 days before study start.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary endpoint for phase II:
    OS rate after 6 months, based on an ITT population. The experimental therapy (FOLFIRI + Ramucirumab) would be considered to be a highly promising candidate for further development (e.g. in a phase III trial), if the true OS rate amounted to 65% or more, as this corresponds to the efficacy of the standard Ramucirumab-Paclitaxel regimen according to the RAINBOW (Wilke et al., 2014) study in the western population.
    The OS rate achieved will be evaluated in view of the calibration arm Ramucirumab + Paclitaxel.

    Co-Primary Endpoints for phase III:
    • Overall Survival (OS) defined as the time from randomization to death from any cause and assessed according to Kaplan-Meier
    and
    • Objective Overall Response Rate (ORR) defined as the proportion of patients with complete or partial remission according to RECIST 1.1
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point

    6 months after randomisation

    phase III:
    Overall survival: continuously

    • Tumor control rate (CR, PR, SD)
    • Safety (according to NCI-CTCAE V 4.03) and tolerability
    • Assessment of quality of life during treatment and follow-up.

    phase III:
    • Disease Control Rate (DCR), defined as the proportion of patients with complete or partial remission or stable disease according to RECIST 1.1
    • Progression free survival (PFS) defined as time from randomization to disease progression or death from any cause
    • Safety in terms of AEs as determined by CTCAE version 4.03 and SAEs, discontinuation rate, dose adjustment rate and tolerability
    • Assessment of quality of life, during treatment and follow-up (until d30 after EOT) and/or until progression.or start of new anticancer therapy.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Progression-free survival: continuously, tumor assessment every 8 weeks
    Objective response rate (CR + PR): every 8 weeks
    Tumor/disease control rate (CR, PR, SD): every 8 weeks
    Assessment of quality of life: every 4 weeks
