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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The clinical response will be determined in terms of decrease in tumor size on examination, according to RECIST criteria (PR is >30% decrease in size, PD is >20% increase in size, SD is in between while CR is no measurable disease). In patients with cutaneous angiosarcoma, documentation will be performed with color photography, including a ruler to estimate the size of the lesion. Otherwise radiologic assessments will be used to evaluate anti-tumor activity.
    If propranolol leads to a response in ≥3 out of 14 patients, this treatment modality is highly interesting and should be tested further in a randomized trial. A response is defined as CR, PR, or SD with an improvement in clinical characteristics, like thickness, erythema, necrosis or edema of the inflicted area in case of clinically evaluable disease (cutaneous angiosarcoma).
    De klinische respons wordt gemeten aan de hand van de beoordeling van de tumorgrootte middels RECIST criteria (PR is >30% afname in grootte, PD is >20% toename in grootte, SD is verandering hiertussen in en CR is wanneer er geen meetbare ziekte meer is).
    Bij patiënten met een cutaan angiosarcoom zal beoordeling van de tumorlaesie middels een kleurenfoto inclusief meetlint geschieden.
    Als ≥3 van de 14 patiënten een respons laten zien op de studiebehandeling, dan beschouwen we propranolol als interessant om verder onderzocht te worden in een gerandomiseerde studie. Een respons is gedefinieerd als CR of PR, of SD met een verbetering van klinische kenmerken zoals dikte, erytheem, necrose of oedeem van de tumor als de laesie klinisch te evalueren is (cutaan angiosarcoom).
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    weekly evaluation on the outpatient clinic
    evaluatie zal wekelijks op de poli plaatsvinden
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The histologic response on propranolol treatment in terms of difference in proliferation index by immunohistochemistry staining of Ki-67 and in tumor activity will be determined between the post-treatment biopsy (obtained during surgery if applicable) and the diagnostic biopsy. A decrease of >30% of Ki-67 staining was stated as a positive histologic response.
    De histologische respons op propranolol zal worden bepaald aan de hand van het verschil in de proliferatie index (immunohistochemische kleuring op Ki-67) en de tumoractiviteit tussen het pre- en postbehandelingsbiopt. Bij een afname van >30% in de Ki-67 kleuring is er sprake van een positieve pathologische respons.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    The pretreatment biopsy, obtained during screening, will be compared with the biopsy after the study treatment (after 3-6 weeks of propranolol).
    Het prebehandelingsbiopt dat tijdens de screening wordt afgenomen zal worden vergeleken met het postbehandelingsbiopt (na 3-6 weken behandeling met propranolol).
