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   37950   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6228   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    1. Determine the safety , survival and feasibility of administration of chimeric antigen receptor T cells transduced with the anti-CD19 lentiviral vector (referred to as “CART-19” cells), in pediatric and adult patients who either:
    a. have not received a prior allogeneic SCT or have 0% residual donor engraftment (“no allo” cohort), or
    b. have relapsed after prior allogeneic SCT with any degree of residual donor engraftment (“allo” cohort).
    2. Determine duration of in vivo survival of CART-19 cells. RT-PCR analysis of whole blood will be used to detect and quantify survival of CART-19 TCR: 4-1BB and TCR cells over time.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. For patients with detectable disease, measure anti-tumor response due to CART-19 cell infusions.
    2. To determine if the 4-1BB transgene is superior to the TCR-zeta only transgene as measured by the relative engraftment levels of CART-19 TCR-zeta :4-1BB and TCR-zeta cells over time.
    3. For patients with stored or accessible tumor cells (such as patients with active CLL, ALL, etc) determine tumor cell killing by CART-19 cells in vitro.
    4. Determine if cellular or humoral host immunity develops against the murine anti-CD19, and assess correlation with loss of detectable CART-19 (loss of engraftment).
    5. Determine the relative subsets of CART-19 T cells (Tcm, Tem, and Treg)
    6. Determine safety and efficacy in a test cohort of patients with CNS3 disease.
