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   43202   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7150   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.

    •Tolerability: adverse events according to CTCAE v4
    •Disease control: best overall response of CR or PR, or SD (or non-CR/non-PD in the case of non-measurable disease only) lasting for at least 24 weeks, measured from randomization until first documentation of progressive disease
    •Overall survival (OS)

    •Histologically or cytologically confirmed HER2‐negative locally advanced or metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer.

    •If previously treated with a taxane in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting, the period from end of treatment to disease recurrence must have been > 12 months (> 365 days).
    •Radiation therapy, if given and regardless of site, must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to randomization.
    •Normal hematologic status,
    -Absolute neutrophil count ≥1000/mm3
    (1.0 × 109/L)
    -Platelets ≥ 100 × 109/L

    -Serum total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × upper limit of normal (ULN). In the case of known Gilbert’s syndrome, a higher serum total bilirubin (< 3 × ULN) is allowed
    -AST and ALT ≤ 3 × ULN; if the patient has liver metastases, ALT and AST must be ≤ 5 × ULN.
    •Women of child bearing potential must have documented negative pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to randomization and agree to acceptable birth control during and up to 6 months after trial therapy.
    •Written Informed Consent (IC) must be signed and dated by the patient and the Investigator prior to starting screening procedures and randomization.
    •The patient has been informed of and agrees to data transfer and handling, in accordance with national data protection guidelines.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    •More than one prior line of chemotherapy for advanced or metastatic breast cancer
    •More than 2 lines of previous endocrine therapy for locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
    •Known active central nervous system metastases, as indicated by clinical symptoms, cerebral edema, and/or progressive growth (patients with history of CNS metastases or spinal cord compression are eligible if they are clinically and radiologically stable for at least 4 weeks before first dose of trial treatment and have not required high-dose steroid treatment in the last 4 weeks).
    •Peripheral neuropathy grade 2 or higher (CTCAE version 4.0).
    •Significant uncontrolled cardiac disease (i.e. unstable angina, myocardial infarction within prior 6 months), patients classified as having a New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV congestive heart failure.
    •Pregnant or lactating.
    •Prior history of non‐breast malignancy (except for adequately controlled basal cell carcinoma of the skin, carcinoma in situ of the cervix, in situ carcinoma of the bladder).
    •Any concurrent condition which in the Investigator’s opinion makes it inappropriate for the patient to participate in the trial or which would jeopardize compliance with the protocol.
    •Contraindications or known hypersensitivity to the trial medication or excipients.
    •The use of any anti‐cancer investigational agents within 30 days prior to expected start of trial treatment.
