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   43881   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7295   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.3Principal inclusion criteria
    [1] Male patients, 18 years of age or greater; willing and able to provide written informed consent.
    [2] Histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the prostate without neuroendocrine differentiation or small cell histology.
    [3] Metastatic prostate cancer documented by positive bone scan and/or measurable soft tissue metastatic lesions by computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). If lymph node metastasis is the only evidence of metastasis, it must be ≥1.5cm in the short axis. Visceral metastasis, including to liver, is allowed.
    [4] Serum testosterone level ≤ 1.73 nmol/L (50 ng/dL) at the Screening visit. Patients who have not undergone orchiectomy are required to continue androgen-deprivation therapy (LHRH agonists/antagonists) throughout the study.
    [5] Progressive disease at study entry demonstrated during continuous androgen deprivation therapy (ADT)/post orchiectomy defined as one or more of the following criteria:
    •Sequence of at least 2 rising PSA values at a minimum of 1-week intervals with the last result being at least 1.0 ng/ml if confirmed rise is the only indication of progression. Patients who received an anti-androgen must have PSA progression after withdrawal (≥ 4 weeks since last flutamide or ≥ 6 weeks since last bicalutamide or nilutamide).
    •Radiographic progression per RECIST1.1 for soft tissue and/or per PCWG3 for bone, with or without PSA progression.
    [6] Patient must have discontinued all previous treatments for cancer (except androgen-deprivation therapy and bone loss prevention treatment), must have recovered from of all acute toxic effects of prior therapy or surgical procedure to Grade ≤ 1 or baseline (as per Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events 4.0) prior to randomization, with the exception of alopecia or peripheral neuropathy AND have a washout period from last dose of prior systemic or radiation therapy.
    [7] Must be able and willing to undergo mandatory tumor biopsy of at least one metastatic site which will be collected following determination of eligibility and before initiating study treatment.
    [8] Have adequate organ function.
    [9] Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0-1
    [10] Willing to comply with study procedures, able to swallow large capsules. Patients with reproductive potential must agree to use effective contraception and to not donate sperm during the study and for at least 3 months following the last dose of study treatment.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    [11] Prior therapy with CYP17 inhibitors (including abiraterone acetate, TAK-700, TOK-001 and ketoconazole)
    [12] Prior treatment with abemaciclib or any CDK4 & 6 inhibitors
    [13] Known or suspected contraindications or hypersensitivity to abiraterone acetate, prednisone or abemaciclib or to any of the excipients.
    [14] Prior cytotoxic chemotherapy for metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (patients treated with docetaxel in the mHSPC are eligible), prior radiopharmaceuticals for prostate cancer, or prior enzalutamide, apalutamide, sipuleucel-T. Patients who had prior radiation or surgery to all target lesions.
    [15] Are currently enrolled in a clinical study involving an investigational product or any other type of medical research judged not to be scientifically or medically compatible with this study. Have participated in clinical trial for which treatment assignment is still blinded. If patient has participated in a clinical study involving an investigational product, 3 months or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) should have passed. If a patient is currently enrolled in a clinical trial involving non-approved use of a device, then agreement with the investigator and Lilly clinical research physician (CRP) is required to establish eligibility.

Patients with carcinoma in situ of any origin and patients with prior malignancies who are in remission and whose likelihood of recurrence is very low, as judged by the Lilly CRP, are eligible for this study. The Lilly CRP will approve enrollment of patients with prior malignancies in remission before these patients are enrolled.
    [18] The patient has serious preexisting medical condition(s) that, in the judgment of the investigator, would preclude participation in this study (for example, interstitial lung disease, severe dyspnea at rest or requiring oxygen therapy, history of major surgical resection involving the stomach or small bowel, or preexisting Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis or a preexisting chronic condition resulting in baseline Grade 2 or higher diarrhea).

Screening is not required for enrollment
    [24] Known or suspected CNS metastatic disease (Baseline screening for CNS metastases is not required unless presence of signs and/or symptoms of involvement).
    [25] Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic BP ≥ 160 mmHg or diastolic BP ≥ 95 mmHg). Patients with a history of hypertension are allowed provided blood pressure is controlled by anti-hypertensive treatment
