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   35236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5759   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.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate if rovalpituzumab tesirine improves progression-free survival, assessed by a Central Radiographic Assessment Committee (CRAC) according to RECIST v1.1, and overall survival in subjects with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (EDSCLC) tumors with a high level of DLL3 expression (DLL3high) who have ongoing clinical benefit (SD, PR, or CR) following the completion of 4 cycles of first-line, platinum-based chemotherapy (cisplatin or carboplatin plus irinotecan or etoposide) compared to placebo.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To evaluate if rovalpituzumab tesirine improves progression-free survival by CRAC and overall survival in all randomized subjects compared to placebo.
    To assess change in patient reported outcomes (PRO) with physical functioning as measured by the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire in all randomized subjects compared to placebo.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    • Histologically or cytologically confirmed ED SCLC (extensive stage disease at initial diagnosis) with ongoing clinical benefit (stable disease [SD], partial response [PR], or complete response [CR] per RECIST v.1.1) following completion of 4 cycles of first-line platinum-based therapy
    • Subject is eligible to be randomized at least 3 but no more than 9 weeks from Day 1 of the fourth cycle of first-line platinum-based chemotherapy.
    • Participants with a history of central nervous system (CNS) metastases prior to the initiation of first-line platinum-based chemotherapy must have received definitive local treatment and have documentation of stable or improved CNS disease status
    • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance score of 0 or 1
    • Participants must have adequate bone marrow, renal and hepatic function
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    • Any prior systemic chemotherapy, small molecule inhibitors, immune checkpoint inhibitors, other monoclonal antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates, radioimmunoconjugates, T-cell or other cell-based or biologic therapies, or any other anti-cancer therapy than that described in inclusion criteria 3-5 for SCLC.
    • Any disease-directed radiotherapy (except PCI, palliative radiotherapy to a radiographically documented non-progressing lesion for symptom control, or pre-planned radiotherapy for CNS metastases present prior to start of first-line therapy and non-progressing) after last dose of first-line chemotherapy.
    • Prior exposure to a pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD)- or indolinobenzodiazepine-based drug, prior participation in a rovalpituzumab tesirine clinical trial, or known hypersensitivity or other contraindications to rovalpituzumab tesirine or excipient contained in the drug formulation.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in subjects with DLL3 high ED SCLC are the two primary efficacy endpoints.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    PFS - From randomization to disease progression, or death of any cause, whichever occurs first.
    OS - From randomization to death of any cause
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    - OS
    - PFS per the CRAC based on RECIST v1.1
    - EORTC QLQ-C30 physical functining domain.
    - Objective response rate (ORR) per the CRAC and investigator assessment, respectively
    - Clinical benefit rate (CBR) per the CRAC and investigator assessment, respectively
    - Duration of response (DOR) per the CRAC and investigator assessment, respectively
    Response assessment will be based on RECIST v1.1.
    - Change from baseline in all PRO domains (except physical functioning) measurd by EORTC QLQ-C30 / LC13 and EQ-5D-5L.
    - Safety endpoints will be summarized using data from the Safety set.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Disease progression will be defined as radiographic progression of disease by RECIST version 1.1.
    PFS, ORR, CBR, DOR - From randomization to disease progression, or death of any cause, whichever occurs first.
    Changes in PROs - From baseline (the assessment prior to first dose) to disease progression, or death of any cause, whichever occurs first.
    Safety endpoints - From baseline to specified time points throughout the study.
