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   41456   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6811   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E. General Information on the Trial

    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Not possible to specify
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To reduce reactivation rates and permanent consequences in MS-LCH (Group 1) through prolongation (12 vs. 24 months) and intensification [+/- Mercaptopurine (MP)] of continuation treatment (2x2 factorial randomized trial)

    To reduce reactivation rates and permanent consequences in a subset of SS-LCH (multifocal bone or isolated “CNS-Risk” lesions (Group 2) through prolongation (6 vs. 12 months) of continuation therapy (randomized trial)

    To investigate the value continuation therapy (randomized: 24 months of indomethacin vs. MP/MTX) in patients with non-risk organ LCH (both non-responders to first-line regimen and those who experience disease reactivation in non-risk organs after its completion) with respect to achievement of complete disease resolution, prevention of further reactivations and permanent consequences

    In each treatment arm of both Strata, also overall survival, the incidence of reactivation in risk organs and treatment-related toxicity will be assessed
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    not applicable
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Stratum I:
    •Age: Patients must be less than 18 years of age at the time of enrollment.
    •No systemic therapy for LCH prior to the standardized induction therapy, e.g., prior to Initial Course 1 (IC-1) and, eventually, Initial Course 2 (IC-2) (pre-study)
    •Evaluation demonstrates non-active disease after IC-1 (independent of involvement of risk organs) or non-active disease or active disease better (only for patients without involvement of risk organs) after IC-2 [imaging studies need to be referenced regarding treatment response to initial course(s) (pre-study)]

    Stratum II:
    •Age: Patients must be older than 2 years and less than 18 years of age at the time of enrollment
    •No systemic therapy for progression/relapse of LCH prior to the standardized second line therapy, e.g., standardized 24-week second-line initial course (SL-IT), which is NOT part of the study
    •Evaluation demonstrates non-active disease or active disease better after SL-IT [imaging studies need to be referenced regarding treatment response to second-line initial course (pre-study)].

    Both Strata:
    •Patients must have a referenced histological verification of the diagnosis of LCH (pre-study)
    •Male subjects able to father children and female subjects of childbearing potential and at risk for pregnancy must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception (e.g., barrier contraception for males, contraceptive pill (“Pill”) for female) throughout the study and for at least 28 days after the last dose of assigned study treatment.
    •Signed informed consent form
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Stratum I:
    •Patients with any active disease after IC-1 or patients with active disease intermediate/worse (for patients without involvement of risk organs) or any active disease (for patients with involvement of risk organs) after Initial Course I

    Stratum II:
    •Patients with progressive disease in risk organs
    •Patients with active disease intermediate/worse after second-line intensive course
    •Patient suffers from Crohn´s disease or Colitis ulcerosa
    •History of asthma, urticaria, or other allergic-type reactions after taking acetylsalicylic acid or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

    For both Strata:
    •Allergy for one of the trial drugs
    •Pregnancy (patients of child-bearing age must be appropriately tested before chemotherapy)
    •Breastfeeding
    •History of severe bleeding or ulcera of the gastrointestinal tract or other relevant bleeding disorders
    •Participation in other clinical trials according to German drug law (§§40ff AMG)
