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   35134   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5741   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.

    b) Women must not be breastfeeding;
    c) WOCBP must agree to follow instructions for methods of contraception for 4 weeks before the start of study treatment, for the duration of study treatment, and for 3 months after cessation of daratumumab or 4 weeks after cessation of pomalidomide, whichever is longer;
    d) Males who are sexually active must always use a latex or synthetic condom during any sexual contact with females of reproductive potential, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy. They must also agree to follow instructions for methods of contraception for 4 weeks before the start of study treatment, for the duration of study treatment, and for a total of 3 months post-treatment completion;
    e) Male subjects must not donate sperm for up to 90 days post-treatment completion;
    f) Female subject must not donate eggs for up to 90 days post-treatment completion;
    g) Azoospermic males and WOCBP who are not heterosexually active are exempt from contraceptive requirements. However, WOCBP will still undergo pregnancy testing as described in this section.
    Highly effective methods of contraception have a failure rate of < 1% when used consistently and correctly. Subjects must agree to the use of 2 methods of contraception, with 1 method being highly effective and the other method being additionally effective.
    Because of the embryo-fetal risk of pomalidomide, all subjects must adhere to the pomalidomide pregnancy prevention program applicable in their region. Investigators should comply with the local label for pomalidomide for guidance on subject education and ensure that all subjects adhere to the local Pomalidomide Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program. When no local pomalidomide REMS program exists, subjects must adhere to the pomalidomide Global Pregnancy
    Prevention Plan.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Previous therapy with any anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody;
    2. Previous exposure to pomalidomide;
    3. Subject has received anti-myeloma treatment within 2 weeks or 5 pharmacokinetic half-lives of the treatment, whichever is longer, before the date of randomization. The only exception is emergency use of a short course of corticosteroids (equivalent of dexamethasone 40 mg/day for a maximum of 4 days) for palliative treatment before Cycle 1, Day 1 (C1D1);
    4. Previous allogenic stem cell transplant; or autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) within 12 weeks before C1D1;

    6. Clinical signs of meningeal involvement of MM;
    7. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with a Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV1) <50% of predicted normal. Note that FEV1 testing is required for subjects suspected of having COPD and subjects must be excluded if FEV1 <50% of predicted normal. (Appendix 4);
    8. Clinically significant cardiac disease, including:
    a) Myocardial infarction within 6 months, before C1D1, or unstable or uncontrolled condition (eg, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, New York Heart Association Class III-IV);
    b) Cardiac arrhythmia (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] Grade 3 or higher) or clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG abnormalities;
    c) Electrocardiogram showing a baseline QT interval as corrected QTc >470 msec;
    9. Criterion modified per Amendment 2:
    9.1 Criterion modified per Amendment 2.1
    9.2 Known:

    [antiHBc] and/or antibodies to hepatitis B surface antigen [antiHBs]) must be screened using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) measurement of hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA levels. Those who are PCR positive will be excluded. EXCEPTION: Subjects with serologic findings suggestive of HBV vaccination (antiHBs positivity as the only serologic marker) AND a known history of prior HBV vaccination, do not need to be tested for HBV DNA by PCR.
    c) To be seropositive for hepatitis C (defined by a positive test for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies. A positive HCV antibody test should be confirmed by a HCV RNA test. EXCEPTION: Subjects in the setting of a sustained virologic response, defined as aviremia at least 12 weeks after completion of antiviral therapy, are not excluded).
    10. Criterion Revised per Amendment 2
    10.1 Criterion Revised per Amendment 2.1
    10.2 Known to be seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (defined by positive testing for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibodies).
    11. Gastrointestinal disease that may significantly alter the absorption of pomalidomide;
    12. Subject has plasma cell leukemia (>2.0 × 109/L circulating plasma cells by standard differential) or Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia or POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, and skin changes) or amyloidosis;
    13. Any concurrent medical or psychiatric condition or disease (eg, active systemic infection, uncontrolled diabetes, acute diffuse infiltrative pulmonary disease) that is likely to interfere with the study procedures or results or that, in the opinion of the investigator, would constitute a hazard for participating in this study;

Subject has had major surgery within 2 weeks before randomization, or has not fully recovered from an earlier surgery, or has surgery planned during the time the subject is expected to participate in the study or within 2 weeks after the last dose of study drug administration. Note: subjects with planned surgical procedures to be conducted under local anesthesia may participate. Kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty are not considered major surgery;
    17. Pregnant or nursing women.
    18. Subject has known allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to any of the study drugs, hyaluronidase, monoclonal antibodies, human proteins, or their excipients (refer to daratumumab IB), or known sensitivity to mammalian-derived products.
    19. Subject was vaccinated with live vaccines within 4 weeks prior to
    randomization.
