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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    13. A female is eligible if she is not pregnant and not breastfeeding. A male participant who agrees to use contraception as detailed in age and reproductive status breastfeeding
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. presence of clinically relevant treatment-related toxicity from previous chemotherapy, targeted therapy and/or radiotherapy. Note: Participates must have recovered from all AEs due to previous therapies to ≤Grade 1 or baseline. Participants with ≤2 neuropathy may be eligible

    3. prior therapy with an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti PD L2 agent or with another agent agents direct to another stimulatory or co-inhibitory T-cell receptor (eg CTLA-4, OC-40, CD137) or TKI or antibody targeting angiogenesis. Patients who have been treated with autologous tumor cell vaccination (eg. Dendritic cell-based immunotherapy) will be eligible
    4. concomitant administration to any other experimental drugs under investigation ≤ 4 weeks prior to first admission of pembrolizumab- lenvatinib
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    1. The proportions of patients with an objective response, defined by Modified RECIST 1.1 criteria for malignant pleural mesothelioma (see appendix C), determined by the local physician and compare ORR with historical controls.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Tumor response assessments will be performed using the same radiographic procedure used to assess disease sites at screening, and will be performed every 6 (±1) weeks for the first 48 weeks of treatment and every 12 (±1) weeks thereafter, until disease progression is documented. Tumor evaluation will be assessed by the investigator using Modified RECIST 1.1 Criteria for malignant pleural Mesothelioma
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    1. Extent of exposure, AEs, SAEs, treatment related AEs (TRAEs/SAEs) , AE’s leading to discontinuation of study drug(s)/withdrawal, fatal TRAEs and deaths. Other AEs that the investigator deemed important to report and reasons for discontinuation of study drug(s). AE grading will be performed by NCIE Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events Version 5.0.
    2. To estimate the disease control rate (DCR) progression-free survival (PFS) determined by defined by Modified RECIST 1.1 criteria for malignant pleural mesothelioma Duration of response (DOR) (all determined by the local physician) and overall survival (OS).
    3. To describe the DCR, ORR, DOR and PFS by independent radiological review
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    AEs ans SAEs: All adverse events/SAEs and concomitant medication will be recorded from the time the consent form is signed through 90 days after termination of anti-cancer therapy or earlier in case of a subsequent treatment line. Concomitant medication will be recorded from the time the consent form is signed through 30 days after termination of anti-cancer therapy or earlier in case of a subsequent treatment line
