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   43392   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7179   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.

    3. Patients should have demonstrated to have
    • a failure of a prior 1st line TKI treatment with either imatinib, dasatinib or nilotinib. A failure is defined as per European LeukemiaNet (ELN) recommendations:
    o Less than CHR and/or Ph+ > 95% at or beyond 3 months
    o No cytogenetic response (Ph+>35%) and/or BCR-ABL1 >10% at or beyond 6 months
    o BCR-ABL (on international scale) >1% and/or Ph+ >0%
    o Less than MMR at or beyond 18 months
    o Loss of response or development of mutations or other clonal chromosomal abnormalities at any time during the first line TKI treatment
    • or intolerance to prior TKI treatment defined as grade 3 or 4 toxicity, or persistent grade 2 toxicity despite optimal management including dose adjustment, or in a patient where dose reductions are considered to be not in the patient’s best interest to obtain an adequate response. Intolerant patients should not have achieved or have lost major molecular response at the time of enrollment
    4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2
    5. Adequate hepatic function as defined by the following criteria:
    • Total serum bilirubin ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN), unless due to Gilbert’s syndrome, in which case it should be ≤ 3.0xULN)
    6. Adequate renal function as defined by the following criterion:
    • Creatinine clearance of ≥ 50 mL/min
    7. Adequate pancreatic function as defined by the following criterion:
    • Serum lipase and amylase ≤1.5×ULN
    8. For patients of childbearing potential, a negative pregnancy test must be documented prior to enrollment. Postmenopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential
    9. Female and male patients who are fertile must agree to use effective forms of contraception with their sexual partners from signing off the informed consent form for this study until 3 months after the end of treatment
    10. Provision of written informed consent and specifically the consent to the collection and processing of health-related data
    11. Willingness and ability to comply with scheduled visits and study procedures
    12. Patients should have discontinued therapy with prior TKI (except hydroxyurea), at least 48 hours prior to start of study therapy
    13. Fully recovered from the acute effects of prior cancer therapy before initiation of study drug
    14. Patients must have had an eye examination confirming no objectives towards study participation by the ophthalmologist within 8 weeks prior to first treatment. . It is recommended to use Ophthalmoscopy to perform the eye examination (additional tests may be used as clinically indicated or as per physician discretion).The eye examinations should test the retinal vasculature
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Any 1st line anti-CML treatment other than TK (apart from therapy with hydroxyurea)
    2. Any 2nd line therapy with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (>1 EMA approved TKI for CML, or any investigational non EMA-approved TKI)
    3. Concurrent participation in any other clinical trial involving another investigational drug within 4 weeks prior to enrollment and throughout participation in PONS-Study
    4. NYHA cardiac class 3-4 heart disease
    5. Cardiac Symptoms within the past 12 months prior recruitment: Patients meeting the following criteria are not eligible:
    • History of unstable angina, myocardial infarction, TIA, stroke, peripheral arterial occlusive disease or pulmonary embolism
    • Any history of clinically significant ventricular arrhythmias (such as ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, or Torsades de pointes)
    • Prolonged QTc interval on pre-entry electrocardiogram (> 450 ms in men, > 470 ms in women) on the Fridericia correction formula
    • Congestive heart failure (NYHA Class III or IV) within 3 months prior to first dose of ponatinib
    6. Patients with active, uncontrolled psychiatric disorders including: psychosis, major depression, and bipolar disorders
    7. Patients with uncontrolled hypertension (defined as sustained systolic blood pressure > 140 mmHg or diastolic > 90 mmHg)
    8. Pregnant or breast-feeding women are excluded
    9. Patients with history of pancreatitis
    10. Patients in accelerated or blast phase, or patients who have ever been documented to be in blast phase CML, are excluded. The definitions of excluded CML phases are as follows:
    • Blastic phase: presence of 30% blasts or more in the peripheral blood or bone marrow
    • Accelerated phase CML: presence of any of the following features:
    o Peripheral or marrow blasts 15% or more
    o Peripheral or marrow basophils 20% or more
    o Thrombocytopenia < 100 x 10^9/L unrelated to therapy
    o Documented extramedullary blastic disease outside liver or spleen
    • Clonal evolution defined as the presence of additional chromosomal abnormalities other than the Ph chromosome has historically been included as a criterion for accelerated phase. However, patients with clonal evolution as the only criterion of accelerated phase have a significantly better prognosis. Thus, patients with clonal evolution and no other criteria for accelerated phase will be eligible for this study, but analyzed separately
    11. Patients showing an intolerance to the active substance or to any of the other ingredients of the test drug
    12. Patients who are committed to an institution by virtue of an order issued either by the judicial or the administrative authorities
    13. Patients who may be dependent on the sponsor, trial site or investigator
