Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43931   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7307   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    5. Received as part of previous therapy a PI, an IMiD, and an anti-CD38 antibody (prior exposure can be from different monotherapy or combination regimens).
    6. Subject must have documented evidence of progressive disease based on investigator’s determination of response by the IMWG criteria on or within 12 months of their last regimen. Confirmation may be from either central or local testing. Also, subjects with documented evidence of progressive disease (as above)
    within the previous 6 months and who are refractory or non-responsive to their most recent line of treatment afterwards are eligible.
    7. ECOG Performance Status grade of 0 or 1
    8. Clinical laboratory values as specified in the protocol
    9. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and prior to the first dose of cyclophosphamide and fludarabine using a highly sensitive serum pregnancy test (β human chorionic gonadotropin [β-hCG]).
    10. When a woman is of childbearing potential the following are required:
    -Subject must agree to practice a highly effective method of contraception (failure rate of <1% per year when used consistently and correctly) and agree to remain on a highly effective method of contraception from the time of signing the informed consent form (ICF) until at least 100 days after receiving a JNJ-68284528 infusion.
    -Examples of highly effective contraceptives include:
    - user-independent methods: 1) implantable progestogen-only hormone contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation; 2) intrauterine device; intrauterine hormone-releasing system; 3) vasectomized partner;
    - user-dependent methods: 1) combined (estrogen- and progestogen-containing) hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation: oral or intravaginal or transdermal; 2) progestogen-only hormone contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral or injectable)
    In addition to the highly effective method of contraception a man:
    -Who is sexually active with a woman of childbearing potential must agree to use a barrier method of contraception (eg, condom with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository) from the time of signing the ICF until at least 100 days after receiving a JNJ-68284528 infusion
    - Who is sexually active with a woman who is pregnant must use a condom
    Women and men must agree not to donate eggs (ova, oocytes) or sperm, respectively, during the study and for 100 days after the last dose of study treatment.
    Note: Hormonal contraception may be susceptible to interaction with the study treatment, which may reduce the efficacy of the contraceptive method.
    11. Subject must sign an ICF indicating that he or she understands the purpose of and procedures required for the study and is willing to participate in the study. Consent is to be obtained prior to the initiation of any study-related tests or procedures that are not part
