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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Each potential participant must satisfy all of the following criteria to be enrolled in the study:
    Age, Type of Participant, and Disease Characteristic
    1. ≥18 years of age
    2. Documented diagnosis of MM according to IMWG diagnostic criteria
    3. Measurable disease at Screening as defined by any of the following:
    • Serum monoclonal paraprotein (M-protein) level ≥1.0 g/dL or urine M-protein level ≥200 mg/24 hours; or
    • Light chain MM in whom only measurable disease is by serum free light chain (FLC) levels: Serum Ig free light chain ≥10 mg/dL and abnormal serum Ig kappa/lambda FLC ratio.
    4. Not considered for high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) due to:
    • Ineligible due to advanced age; or
    • Ineligible due to presence of comorbid condition(s) likely to have a negative impact on tolerability of high-dose chemotherapy with ASCT; or
    • Deferral of high-dose chemotherapy with ASCT as initial treatment.
    5. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status grade of 0 or 1
    Contraceptive/Barrier Requirements
    6. A woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must have 2 negative highly sensitive serum (β-human chorionic gonadotropin) tests prior to starting VRd. The first test must be within 10 to 14 days prior to the start of VRd. The second pregnancy test will be done within 24 hours prior to the start of VRd. The investigator must verify that the results of these tests are negative prior to starting VRd.
    7. When a woman is of childbearing potential, the participant must commit either to abstaining continuously from heterosexual intercourse or agree to practice 2 methods of reliable birth control simultaneously, ie, one highly effective method of contraception (failure rate of <1% per year when used consistently and correctly; see examples below) and one other effective method (ie, male latex or synthetic condom, diaphragm, or cervical cap). The participant must agree to remain on both methods of birth control from the time of signing the informed consent until at least 1 year after receiving cilta-cel infusion or for at least 4 weeks following the last dose of lenalidomide or for 3 months after receiving the last dose of bortezomib (whichever is later). Reliable contraception is indicated even where there has been a history of infertility, unless it is due to hysterectomy. Women of childbearing potential should be referred to a qualified provider of contraceptive methods, if needed. Examples of highly effective contraceptives include:
    • User-independent methods: 1) implantable progestogen-only hormone contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation; 2) intrauterine device; intrauterine hormone releasing system; 3) vasectomized partner.
    • User-dependent method: progestogen-only hormone contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral or injectable). Estrogen-containing hormonal contraception is contraindicated due to increased risk of thromboembolic events with lenalidomide.
    • Women of childbearing potential must follow the contraception criteria outlined in the global REVLIMID® pregnancy prevention program or equivalent local Risk
    Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, whichever is more stringent, as applicable in their region.
    8. A man must commit either to abstaining continuously from heterosexual intercourse or a man
    • Who is sexually active with a WOCBP or a pregnant woman must agree to use a barrier method of contraception (eg, latex or synthetic condom with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/suppository), from the time of signing the informed consent form (ICF) until at least 1 year after receiving cilta-cel infusion or for at least 4 weeks after the last dose of lenalidomide or for at least 3 months after the last dose of bortezomib (whichever is later), even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy.
    • Should agree to practice contraception according to and for the time frame specified in the global REVLIMID® pregnancy prevention program or equivalent local REVLIMID® pregnancy prevention program, whichever is more stringent.
    9. Women and men must agree not to donate eggs (ova, oocytes) or sperm, respectively, during the study and for at least 1 year after receiving a cilta-cel infusion or for at least 4 weeks after the last dose of lenalidomide or for at least 3 months after the last dose of bortezomib (whichever is later).
    Informed Consent
    10. Participant must sign an ICF indicating that he or she understands the purpose of, and procedures required for, the study and is willing to participate in the study. Consent is to be obtained prior to the initiation of any study-related tests or procedures that are not part of standard-of-care for the participant’s disease.
    11. Willing and able to adhere to the prohibitions and lifestyle restrictions.
