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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the 5-year-progression free survival (PFS).
    PFS is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of first evidence of loco-regional recurrences, or distant metastases, or death from any cause whichever occurs first, or the date of last known follow-up alive without any such events.
    Evidence of loco-regional recurrences is evaluated on PET CT (18FCH-PET CT-scan or 68Ga-PSMA PET)
    Evidence of distant metastases is evaluated on PET CT (18FCH-PET CT-scan or 68Ga- PSMA PET)
    Relapse at a distant metastatic site is defined as the occurrence of PET CT defined bone or soft tissue distant metastasis.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Cancer-specific overall survival is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death related to prostate cancer or the date of last known follow-up alive.
    2. Overall survival (OS) will be assessed at 10 years. OS is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or the date of last known follow-up alive.
    3. Biochemical relapse-free survival will be retrospectively defined by the interval between the date of randomization and the date of the first PSA elevation following the 6-months treatment in both arms (PSA ≥ 0.5 ng/mL confirmed by two consecutive PSA increases over a 2-months interval).
    If no biochemical relapse is observed, the PSA concentration will be measured every 6 months for 5 years and every year thereafter.
    In order to compare PSA values, PSA assays must always be performed for each patient in the same laboratory.
    Following biochemical relapse, clinical staging (18FCH-PET CT-scan or 68Ga-PSMA PET) will be repeated every 6 months until local or metastatic progression is detected.
    4. The time to castration resistance is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of appearance of castration resistance defined in the EAU guidelines (Cornford Eur Urol 2017). Castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is defined as castrate serum testosterone <50 ng/dl or 1.7 nmol/l plus one of the following types of progression:
    - Biochemical progression: Three consecutive rises in PSA 1 wk apart, resulting in two 50% increases over the nadir, and PSA >2 ng/ml
    - Radiologic progression: The appearance of new lesions: either two or more new bone lesions on bone scan or a soft tissue lesion using the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours
    Frequency, nature and severity of adverses events will be assessed according to the NCI CTCAE version 5.0 (see Appendix 4)
    Acute toxicity related to radiotherapy is defined as occurring during radiotherapy and up to 3 months after completion of radiotherapy.
    Late toxicity related to radiotherapy is defined as occurring later than 3 months after end of radiotherapy.
    The tolerance will be evaluated up until 10 years.

    Patient-reported outcomes:
    Quality of life will be assessed at baseline, at end of SRT, at end of treatment visit and at every follow up visit until disease progression by using:
    - EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire
    - EORTC QLQ-PR25 questionnaire
    - IIEF-5 questionnaire
    - IADL scale for patients ≥ 75 years old
