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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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)
    Radiographic progression-free survival, defined as time from randomisation to radiographic progression as assessed by the investigator according to PCWG3 criteria, or death, whichever occurs first.
    According to the PCWG3 recommendations, radiographic progression is defined as either the appearance of two or more new bone lesions on bone scan or a nodal or visceral progression according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours version 1.1 (RECIST v1.1). The date of radiographic progression will be the date of the first reported event meeting the above definition.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Patient’s disease will be assessed at “baseline” (during the screening period) and then every 120 (±14) days after randomisation during the first 2 years and every 180 (±14) days thereafter, until documented radiographic progression, or death, whichever occurs first.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    Key secondary endpoints:
    - Castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC)-free survival, defined as the time from randomisation to onset of CRPC according to PCWG3 criteria, or death, whichever occurs first.
    - Clinical progression-free survival, defined as time from randomisation to first occurrence of any one of the following:
    o Cancer pain deterioration (2-point deterioration from baseline according to the Brief Pain Inventory - Short Form [BPI-SF] questionnaire, or initiation of opioid therapy, or a ≥30% increase in opiate use),
    o Any deterioration of physical function measured using the 4-IADL assessment tool,
    o A deterioration in ECOG performance status of at least 2 points from baseline,
    o Death from any cause.
    - Overall survival, defined as the time from randomisation to the time of death from any cause. For subjects alive at the time of analysis, data will be censored on the last date the subject was known to be alive or lost to follow-up or withdraw consent.
    - Toxicity will be evaluated according to version 5 of the National Cancer Institut - Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE v5.0).
    Other secondary endpoints
    - Time to worsening in prostate cancer-related urinary symptoms, defined as an increase from baseline of greater or equal to 8 points in the urinary symptom scale/score (PRURI) measured using the prostate cancer module of the European organisation for research and treatment of cancer (EORTC) quality of life questionnaire (QLQ) (EORTC-QLQ-PR25).
    - Time to next symptomatic skeletal event, defined as the time from randomisation until first occurrence of one of the following: a symptomatic fracture, radiation or surgery to bone or a spinal cord compression (PCWG3 criteria).
    Note: The occurrence of these events will be determined by investigator evaluation. No systematic X-Ray will be performed.
    - Complete PSA response (defined as PSA ≤ 0.2 ng/ml) at 6 months.
    - Prostate cancer-specific survival, defined as the time from randomisation to the date of death due to prostate cancer (deaths due to other causes will be censored).
    - Time to deterioration for EORTC QLQ-PR25 symptom subscales, defined as the first decline in the HRQoL score from baseline equal to or greater than the minimally important difference (MID; a measure of clinical significance) defined as half the standard deviation of the baseline value for each subscale.
    - Time to first subsequent systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT) defined as the time from randomisation to the date of initiation of any SACT for CRPC, following initiation of the study treatment.
    - Efficacy of subsequent SACT will be assessed according to rPFS, OS, and PFS after next line of treatment (PFS2); defined as the time from randomisation to second objective disease progression, or death from any cause, whichever first.
    - Health related quality of life will be evaluated using the EORTC-QLQ-C30, EORTC-QLQ-PR25 and BPI-SF questionnaires.
    - Geriatric status will be evaluated using the Geriatric Core Dataset (G-Code) assessment.
    E.5.2.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    Patients will be asked to attend clinical visits to perform safety and efficacy assessments on Day 30 (±3 days), Day 60 (±3 days), Day 120 (±7 days), Day 180 (±7 days), Day 240 (±7 days) and then every 120 (±14) days for the first two years of treatment and every 180 (±14) days thereafter. Response to treatment will be assessed according to the Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Working Group 3 (PCWG3) criteria by radiographic exams performed every 120 (±14) days after randomisation during the first 2 years and every 180 (±14) days thereafter.
