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   35543   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5841   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    It is well known that blood flow in tumors are higher than in healthy tissue. The main objective of the trial is to prove that the increased blood flow in tumors can be detected by the PET flow tracer 82Rb. In this project we examine the prostate.
    Protection of trial subjects
    None (None needed)
    Background therapy
    None
    Evidence for comparator
    The healthy controls have normal PSA values and no known disease of the prostate.

    Recruitment
    Recruitment details
    The 15 patients with prostate cancer were recruited in relation to a clinical 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan. The 15 controls were recruited in relation to a clinical 82Rb PET/CT myocardial perfusion scan. The controls had a PSA blood sample taken and were asked about symptoms from lower urinary tract and known prostate disease.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    The patients had high risk prostate cancer and no other known malignancies. The controls had a PSA blood sample taken and were asked about symptoms from lower urinary tract and no known prostate disease and no other known malignancies.

    [2] - T-test for analysis of the difference between mean SUV in the tumors of the patients (PSMA guided) and mean SUV in the total prostate in the healthy controls.
    [3] - A very low p-value that proves significantly higher mean SUV in the tumors of the patients (PSMA guided) than mean SUV in the total prostate in the healthy controls.

    Notes
    [1] - There are no non-serious adverse events recorded for these results. It is expected that there will be at least one non-serious adverse event reported.
    Justification: No adverse events were reported, (this was as expected, as 82Rb has no known adverse effects)
