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   43841   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7281   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
    Primary Objective: To determine the safety and feasibility of pre-operative immunotherapy in colon cancer.

    Additional Primary Objective for the expanded the MSI cohort: To assess efficacy of neoadjuvant ipilimumab plus nivolumab in terms of disease-free survival.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To assess the major pathological response rate (MPR, <10% viable tumor rest) and complete response rate;
    • To assess post-surgical outcome and infectious complications following neoadjuvant immunotherapy;
    • To find biomarkers and evaluation strategies able to accurately assess complete and near-complete responses in order to pursue organ-sparing treatment (omission of surgery) in this patient population,
    o Post-treatment CT-scans: can we use radiomics and/or artificial intelligence to accurately assess complete and near-complete response?
    o Pre- and post-treatment PET-scans (possibly with novel tracers): is assessment of complete response rate more accurate with PET than CT-scans.
    o ctDNA analysis: can we use ctDNA to assess complete response and is there a difference between complete and near-complete response in terms of minimal residual disease on ctDNA and risk of relapse?

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Primary endpoint for the MSS cohort: Safety will be measured by SAEs, SUSARS, and treatment related complications leading to delay in surgery (that according to the study timelines should be performed in week 5-6). Pre-operative treatment-related complications include all immune-related adverse events, attributable to the study medication, that lead to delay in surgery, with colitis being the most important, or delays due to the treatment of immunotherapy related toxicity. Logistical reasons or non-study-medication related complications (i.e. bacterial infections) leading to delay in surgery will not be considered dose-limiting toxicity. Post-operative complications including, but not limited to anastomotic dehiscence, wound dehiscence, abscess, perforation, bleeding and infection will be recorded. Feasibility will be measured by adherence to the timelines in the study protocol.
    Analyses for efficacy and pathological response after immunotherapy in the MSS subgroup will be hypothesis-generating and will be used to guide future combinations or expansions within this study.

    Primary endpoints for the DFS cohort: safety (proportion of patients receiving surgery on time) and disease-free survival defined as time since surgery until disease recurrence or death from any cause.

    Additional Primary endpoint for the expanded MSI cohort: 3-year disease-free survival. A two-sided, one-sample logrank test calculated for a sample of 100 patients has 80% power at a 0.025 significance level (split alpha due to two primary endpoints) to detect a 3-year DFS of 93% if the 3-year DFS in the historic control group is (or synthetic matched control group) is 82%.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    This calculation assumes that patients will be accrued within 4.5 years and the data will be analyzed 6 months after accrual of the last patient. The 4.5 years accrual takes into account the 3-year accrual within the current NICHE trial that has already taken.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    • To assess the major pathological response rate (MPR, <10% viable tumor rest) and complete response rate and whether response correlates with DFS;
    • To find biomarkers and evaluation strategies able to accurately assess complete and near-complete responses in order to pursue organ-sparing treatment (omission of surgery) in this patient population in future trials:
    o Post-treatment CT-scans: can we use radiomics to accurately assess complete and near-complete response?
    o ctDNA analysis: can we use ctDNA to assess complete response and is there a difference between complete and near-complete response in terms of minimal residual disease on ctDNA and risk of relapse?
    • To expand current exploratory translational analyses, in terms of;
    o RNA sequencing and inflammatory signatures to find signatures predictive of response and possible escape mechanisms in non-responding tumors;
    • Analysis of immune cell infiltration and the difference with inflamed pMMR tumors pre- and post-treatment: why is there no pathological response in pMMR tumors showing immune activation? And are there any differences between complete and near-complete responders?
    • Primary readout will be the effect of therapy on intratumoral T-cell infiltration, CD4, CD8 infiltration and immune checkpoints upregulation (including but not limited to PDL1 and LAG3 assessment for nivo/rela cohorts) in the time interval pre- and post-treatment in biopsies.
    • Immunogenic mutational load will be determined by tumor tissue DNA WES. Peripheral blood DNA WES will also be performed and used as a control for somatic mutation sorting (only genes relating to colon cancer and/or immune-related genes, deemed informational for this study, will be assessed).
    • Immune suppressive pathways, IFN-y induced gene expression and COX2 induced gene expression changes will be analyzed by use of RNA sequencing on pre- and post-therapy tissue;
    • Date of relapse, as determined by disease recurrence or disease-related death during follow-up after surgery. Follow-up will be performed according to local and/or national guidelines;
    Fresh tissue for the generation of organoids or the use for other analyses using tumor digest, will be collected whenever possible.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Pathology response: This calculation assumes that patients will be accrued within 4.5 years and the data will be analyzed 6 months after accrual of the last patient. The 4.5 years accrual takes into account the 3-year accrual within the current NICHE trial that has already taken.
