  Purpose

This randomized phase III trial is studying imatinib mesylate and bevacizumab to see how well they work compared to imatinib mesylate alone in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable gastrointestinal stromal tumor. Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving imatinib mesylate together with bevacizumab may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether imatinib mesylate and bevacizumab are more effective than imatinib mesylate alone in treating gastrointestinal stromal tumor.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Compare the progression-free survival of patients with metastatic or unresectable gastrointestinal stromal tumor treated with imatinib mesylate with vs without bevacizumab.

II. Compare the response probabilities (in patients with measurable disease) and overall survival rates in patients treated with these regimens.

III. Compare the frequency and severity of toxicities associated with these regimens in these patients.

IV. Correlate soluble vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), VEGF-D, VEGF receptor (VEGFR)-1, VEGFR-2, angiopoietin-2, platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR)-AA and PDGFR-BB levels, positron-emission tomography imaging, and immunohistochemistry for p16, VEGF, and VEGFR with kinase mutation status and clinical outcomes.

V. Examine the pharmacokinetics of imatinib mesylate with single nucleotide polymorphisms involving the ABCG2 and CYP3A4 genes, as well as other genes that are reported to influence the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of imatinib mesylate.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to Zubrod performance status (0 vs 1-3) and disease status (measurable vs non-measurable). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily on days 1-21 and bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1.

ARM II: Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily on days 1-21.

In both arms, courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Blood* is obtained at baseline, periodically during study treatment, and at disease progression. Blood is analyzed for angiogenesis-related soluble factors, kinase genotyping, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacogenomics.

[Note: *Samples are no longer considered mandatory for study as of 5/29/2009.]

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for up to 7 years.
