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   42312   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6968   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.

    11. The subject is capable of understanding and complying with the protocol requirements and has signed the BARCODE 2 informed consent form.

    In addition to the above, for Part 2 of the study:
    1. Confirmed pathogenic germline mutation in a DNA repair gene. (Patients with a known germline mutation will need to provide a report from the external laboratory where genetic testing was carried out)
    2. Previous treatment with docetaxel and abiraterone or enzalutamide with documented disease progression prior to study entry to part 2 (rising PSA and/or radiographic progression)
    3. Adequate liver function: Total bilirubin ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) except for patients with known Gilbert’s syndrome; AST and ALT ≤ 2.5x ULN in the presence of liver metastases.
    4. Adequate renal function: creatinine clearance >40ml/min measured by EDTA clearance.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Exclusion Criteria (for part 1 and 2)
    1. Critical organ metastases (e.g. spinal metastases with risk of cord compression) as documented on most recent imaging report.

    As part of the study, participants will receive three-weekly infusions of carboplatin for as long as their cancer is responding and they do not experience significant, unresolving side-effects. Carboplatin is already licensed. Once treatment on study ends (due to disease progression or unresolving toxicity), they will revert to standard management and follow up with their oncology team. The continued care of patient will be at the discretion of the treating clinician.
