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   41039   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6717   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the safety and efficacy of PEM when administered in combination with AZA in NPM1mut patients with molecular relapse.
    This objective is based on the hypothesis that PEM in combination with AZA is safe and more effective than AZA alone to prevent hematological relapse of NPM1mut patients with molecular relapse.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    - Toxicity of the treatment with pembrolizumab and azacytidine
    - Proportion of event-free patients after 12 weeks of combination treatment
    - Treatment-related mortality during 24 weeks of combined therapy
    - Course of MRD-burden measured as quantitative NPM1/ABL ratio over time
    Exploratory:
    - Qualitative and quantitative changes in cellular subsets of the immune system during treatment with pembrolizumab and azacytidine
    - Impact of PD-1 and PD-L1 expression on outcome
    - Mutational pattern and burden of selected genes (panel) and their influence on response
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    - Signed informed consent
    - Age ≥18 years
    - Patients with NPM1mut AML in complete morphologic remission after conventional chemotherapy (anthracyclines ± cytarabin based)
    - Detectable measurable residual disease (MRD) indicating imminent hematological relapse (NPM1mut status >1%)
    - Patients who are not eligible for immediate allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
    - Patients who are not eligible to undergo alternative intensive treatment
    - Intended AZA therapy for molecular relapse
    - ECOG performance status of 0 or 1

    - No allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo SCT) within 5 years prior to study treatment
    - Female subject of childbearing potential should have a negative urine or serum pregnancy within 3 days prior to receiving the first dose of study medication. If the urine test is positive or cannot be confirmed as negative, a serum pregnancy test will be required
    - Female subjects of childbearing potential must be willing to use an adequate method of contraception (Section 5.9.2), for the course of the study through 120 days after the last dose of study medication
    - Male subjects with procreative capacity must agree to use an adequate method of contraception (Section 5.9.2), starting with the first dose of study therapy through 120 days after the last dose of study therapy
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    - Current treatment with any investigational drug or within 4 weeks or less than 5 half-lives preceding the first dose of trial medication, whichever is longer
    - Known hypersensitivity to any of the drugs used or their constituents or to drugs with similar chemical structure

    - Known history of active TB (Bacillus Tuberculosis)
    - Anti-cancer monoclonal antibody (mAb) within 4 weeks prior to study Day 1 or who has not recovered (i.e., ≤ Grade 1 or at baseline) from adverse events due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier
    - Prior chemotherapy, targeted small molecule therapy, or radiation therapy within 2 weeks prior to study Day 1 or who has not recovered (i.e., ≤ Grade 1 or at baseline) from adverse events due to a previously administered agent
    Note: Subjects with ≤ Grade 2 neuropathy are an exception to this criterion and may qualify for the study.
    Note: If subject received major surgery, they must have recovered adequately from the toxicity and/or complications from the intervention prior to starting therapy.
    - Completed 24 months of uninterrupted treatment with pembrolizumab or 35 administrations of study medication, whichever is later
    - Known additional malignancy that is progressing or requires active treatment. Exceptions include basal cell carcinoma of the skin or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin that has undergone potentially curative therapy or in situ cervical cancer
    - Known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis. Subjects with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are stable (without evidence of progression by imaging for at least four weeks prior to the first dose of trial treatment and any neurologic symptoms have returned to baseline), have no evidence of new or enlarging brain metastases, and are not using steroids for at least 7 days prior to trial treatment. This exception does not include carcinomatous meningitis which is excluded regardless of clinical stability
    - Active autoimmune disease that has required systemic treatment in the past 2 years (i.e. with use of disease modifying agents, corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs). Replacement therapy (eg., thyroxine, insulin, or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy for adrenal or pituitary insufficiency, etc.) is not considered a form of systemic treatment

    - Known psychiatric or substance abuse disorders that would interfere with cooperation with the requirements of the trial
    - Pregnant or breastfeeding, or expecting to conceive or father children within the projected duration of the trial, starting with the pre-screening or screening visit through 120 days after the last dose of trial treatment
    - Has received prior therapy with an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-PD-L2 agent
    - Known history of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (HIV 1/2 antibodies)
