  Purpose

To determine if sorafenib when added to chemotherapy will slow disease progression more than chemotherapy alone in patients previously untreated for metastatic colorectal cancer.


Condition Intervention Phase
Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

Drug: Matching placebo + mFOLFOX6 (5-FU, levo-leucovorin, oxaliplatin)
Phase 2

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 2b, DB, Randomized Study Evaluating Efficacy & Safety of Sorafenib Compared With Placebo When Administered in Combination With Modified FOLFOX6 for the Treatment of Metastatic CRC Subjects Previously Untreated for Stage IV Disease

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From randomization of the first subject until 23 months later, assessed every 8 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-free Survival (PFS) was defined as the time from date of randomization to disease progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurred first. Subjects without progression or death at the time of analysis were censored at their last date of tumor evaluation. Disease progression was defined as an increase of at least 20% in the sum of tumor lesions sizes.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From randomization of the first subject until 33 months later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall Survival (OS) was defined as the time from date of randomization to death due to any cause. Subjects still alive at the time of analysis were censored at their last date of last contact.

  • Time to Progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: From randomization of the first subject until 23 months later, assessed every 8 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to progression (TTP) was defined as the time from date of randomization to disease progression. Subjects without progression at the time of analysis were censored at their last date of tumor evaluation. Disease progression was defined as an increase of at least 20% in the sum of tumor lesions sizes.

  • Overall Response [ Time Frame: From randomization of the first subject until 23 months later, assessed every 8 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall response of a subject was defined as the best tumor response (Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR)) observed during trial period assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria. CR was defined as disappearance of tumor lesions, PR was defined as a decrease of at least 30% in the sum of tumor lesion sizes.

  • Duration of Response [ Time Frame: From randomization of the first subject until 23 months later, assessed every 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of Response was defined as the time from date of first response (Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR)) to the date when Progressive Disease (PD) was first documented or to the date of death, whichever occurred first according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Subjects still having CR or PR and alive at the time of analysis were censored at their last date of tumor evaluation. CR was defined as disappearance of tumor lesions, PR as a decrease of at least 30% and PD as an increase of at least 20% in the sum of tumor lesions sizes.
