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   38870   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6391   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
    The primary objective of this exploratory study is to show immunologic efficacy of tumor-peptide-loaded natural DC in mEC patients. The immune-monitoring will include: a) functional response and dextramer analysis of DTH infiltrating lymphocytes against tumor peptides, b) type I IFN gene expression in PBMC shortly after vaccination, and c) proliferative, effector cytokine- and humoral responses to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH), an immunogenic protein providing T cell help.
    Het primaire doel van dit verkennende onderzoek is het aantonen van immunologische werkzaamheid van tumor-peptide-geladen natuurlijke DC in mEC-patiënten die chemotherapie ondergaan. De immuunbewaking omvat: a) functionele respons en dextramer-analyse van DTH-infiltrerende lymfocyten tegen tumorpeptiden, b) type I IFN-genexpressie in PBMC kort na vaccinatie, en c) proliferatieve, effector cytokine- en humorale responsen op hemodonine met sleutelgatzeeslak (KLH), een immunogeen eiwit dat hulp biedt aan T-cellen.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are the safety, feasibility and quality of life of natural DC vaccinations in combination with chemotherapy.
    De secundaire doelstellingen zijn de veiligheid, haalbaarheid en kwaliteit van leven van natuurlijke DC-vaccinaties in combinatie met chemotherapie.
