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   36571   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6041   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine safety, tolerability, maximum tolerated dose, and recommended phase II dose of venetoclax in combination with increasing cytarabine doses plus fixed dose mitoxantrone in subjects with a relapsed or refractory AML considered fit for intensive salvage therapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess the preliminary efficacy of venetoclax in combination with increasing cytarabine doses plus fixed dose mitoxantrone in subjects with a relapsed or refractory AML considered fit for intensive salvage therapy.

    Exploratory objectives (ancillary research) of this study are to
    • Identification of biological factors predicting CR/CRi achievement
    • Changes in clonal architecture of hematopoiesis during therapy
    Goals of the ancillary research project are:
    1) To determine biomarkers for response and mechanisms of resistance to the combination of venetoclax plus ARAC-based chemotherapy
    2) To display the course of minimal residual disease
    3) To test if changes the clonal composition of hematopoiesis of patients occur during maintenance therapy

    • Cumulative previous exposure to anthracyclines of >410 mg/m2 doxorubicin equivalents
    • Acute GVHD ≥ grade 2, extensive chronic GVHD or requiring systemic immunosuppressive therapy

    • Any malabsorption condition
    • Treatment with strong CYP3A inhibitors during screening

    • AML relapse treatment with any investigational or commercial drug within 10 days before enrolment. Hydroxyurea is allowed until enrolment to control peripheral WBC counts.
    • Substance abuse, medical, psychological, or social conditions that may interfere with the subject’s cooperation with the requirements of the trial or evaluation of the study results
    • Acute toxicities from any prior anti-leukemia therapy or from previous investigational drugs that have not resolved to Grade <2 per National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), Version 5.0
    • History of active or chronic infectious hepatitis unless serology demonstrates clearance of infection (Occult or prior hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (defined as negative hepatitis B surface antigen and positive total hepatitis B core antibody) may be included if HBV DNA is undetectable, provided that they are willing to undergo monthly DNA testing. Patients who have protective titers of hepatitis B surface antibody after vaccination or prior but cured hepatitis B are eligible. Patients positive for hepatitis C virus antibody are eligible provided PCR is negative for HCV RNA)
    • History of clinically significant liver cirrhosis (e.g., Child-Pugh class B and C).
    • Pregnant or breastfeeding patients
