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   43851   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7283   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 ).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The sensitivity and specificity of 68Ga-NOTA-AE105 PET/CT and FDG PET/MR for detection of regional lymph node metastases will be tested by observer-blinded readings (two separate teams) and compared to diagnostic performance of conventional preoperative procedure. The reference test will be histopathology of lymph nodes obtained by operative lymph node dissection based on 6 regions. The suspected lymph nodes will be assigned to 6 regions based on the images. During the following operation the lymph nodes will be removed and analysed in each of these regions.
    Protection of trial subjects
    An experienced medical doctor will be present in the department during the entire duration of the PET/CT and PET/MR scans. Emergency equipment is available in accordance with the current procedures of the department, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation and oxygen supply/suction. It is emphasized, that handling of emergency situations is part of the department's routine procedures, and the staff is trained to handle e.g. unexpected allergic reactions associated with administration of CT contrast agents.

    Sensitivity of uPAR-PET/CT detection of regional lymph node metastases by 68Ga-NOTA-AE105 PET/CT
    End point type
    Primary
    End point timeframe
    Evaluated on the uPAR PET/CT 20 minutes after injection of [68Ga]-NOTA-AE105
    Notes
    [1] - No statistical analyses have been specified for this primary end point. It is expected there is at least one statistical analysis for each primary end point.
    Justification: uPAR-PET Image technical check following 18 patients, demonstrated that bladder cancer/lymph node metastases could not be discriminated from spillover caused by high bladder activity. Accordingly, the study was terminated prematurely.
    [2] - The end point is not reporting statistics for all the arms in the baseline period. It is expected all the baseline period arms will be reported on when providing values for an end point on the baseline period.
    Justification: The sensitivity for detection of regional lymph node metastases was also not performed for FDG PET/MR because the main purpose of the trial was to study the sensitivity of uPAR PET/CT. For technical reasons, this was not possible and the study was terminated prematurely. The number of included subjects at termination was too low for any meaningful analysis of FDG PET/MR sensitivity.

    Limitations and caveats

    Limitations of the trial such as small numbers of subjects analysed or technical problems leading to unreliable data.
    uPAR-PET Image technical check following 18 patients, demonstrated that bladder cancer/lymph node metastases could not be discriminated from spillover caused by high bladder activity. Accordingly, the study was terminated prematurely.
