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.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Step 1:
    - Incidence of underexposure to ABI during the first three months in patients treated at standard dose (1000 mg/day) and identification of inter- and intra-individual variability factors of plasma levels of ABI.
    - Evaluation of medical adherence and correlation with mean ABI concentration and socioeconomic conditions.
    - Progression free survival (time from the day of inclusion to disease progression or death) and correlation with underexposure to ABI.
    Step 2:
    - PSA response rate.
    - Progression free survival.
    - Safety of ABI at a dose of 2000 mg/day.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Step 1
    - Male 18 years and older.
    - Voluntary signed informed consents of the patient
    - Histologically confirmed prostate adenocarcinoma.
    - Presence of bone and/or soft-tissue and/or visceral metastases through CT scan, MRI, or scintigraphy scan.
    - Progressive disease assessed by PSA, CT scan, MRI or bone scan according to the PCGW3 criteria
    - Patient with no or moderate symptoms (no need for continuous opioid treatment)
    - Effective castration confirmed by testosterone plasma level < 50 ng/mL
    - ECOG performance status: 0-2

    - Mean of ABI concentration < 8,5ng/mL.
    - Progressive disease according to PCWG3 criteria within 28 weeks following starting of ABI in the step 1 (according to PCWG3 criteria of progression at trial entry, isolated PSA increase will be accepted).
    - Inclusion in step 2 must occur within 2 months following the first observation of cancer progression while in step 1.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Step 1
    - Pure small cell carcinoma of the prostate or predominant histology of neuro-endocrine carcinoma
    - Confirmed brain and/or leptomeningeal metastases
    - Previous treatment with docetaxel or any other anticancer treatment for castration-resistant prostate carcinoma (previous docetaxel for hormone-sensitive metastatic disease is allowed)

    - Limitation of the patient's ability to comply with the treatment or to follow the protocol.
    Step 2
    - Persistent grade 3-4 toxicities related to ABI. In case of persistent grade 2 toxicity or resolutive grade 3-4 toxicities, inclusion in step 2 must be discussed in a case by case basis with the study coordinating Investigator.
    - All non-inclusion criteria for step 1 apply
    - Patient who does not take ABI daily at the investigator opinion
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is the proportion of patients who do not experience progressive disease at 12 weeks from the day of inclusion in step 2.

    Secondary endpoints are :
    - Underexposure to ABI
    - Measure of medical adherence
