Treatment of Patients With RAD001 Who Have Progressive Sarcoma

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00767819
First received: October 6, 2008
Last updated: May 7, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose
The purpose of this multicenter, two-arm, exact binomial single-stage, phase II trial is to determine the preliminary efficacy and safety of RAD001 in patients with histological evidence of progressive or metastatic bone or soft tissue sarcoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Progressive Sarcoma Drug: Everolimus/RAD001 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Multicenter, Triple-arm, Single-stage, Phase II Trial to Determine the Preliminary Efficacy and Safety of RAD001 in Patients With Histological Evidence of Progressive or Metastatic Bone or Soft Tissue Sarcomas

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Preliminary efficacy of RAD001 in progressive or metastatic bone and soft tissue sarcoma (except for GIST) defined as the proportion complete response, partial response or stable disease at 16 weeks. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • Preliminary efficacy of RAD001 in patients with GIST after failure or intolerance of treatment with imatinib or sunitinib in 1st and 2nd line defined as the proportion of patients showing complete response, partial response or stable disease at 16 weeks. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate preliminary efficacy of RAD001 in progressive or metastatic alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS). Efficacy is defined as the proportion of patients showing complete response, partial response or stable disease at 16 weeks. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the tolerability and safety profile of RAD001 in these patient populations. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate the objective tumor response rate based on RECIST-criteria (complete response [CR] and partial response [PR]) at 16 weeks. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate duration of response [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate progression-free survival (PFS) at 16 weeks. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate overall survival (OS). [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • To evaluate PFS at month 12 for patients with data available from follow-up observation (optional). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • To evaluate OS at 12 months for patients with data available from follow-up observation (optional). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Enrollment: 71
Actual Study Start Date: March 31, 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 31, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 31, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Histological evidence of progressive or metastatic bone or soft tissue sarcoma.

The following tumor types are included:

  • malignant fibrous histiocytoma
  • liposarcoma
  • synovial sarcoma
  • malignant paraganglioma
  • fibrosarcoma
  • leiomyosarcoma
  • angiosarcoma including haemangiopericytoma
  • malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor
  • STS, not otherwise specified
  • miscellaneous sarcoma including mixed mesodermal tumors of the uterus
  • osteosarcoma
  • Ewing's sarcoma
  • rhabdomyosarcoma
  • gastrointestinal stromal tumor (only after failure or intolerance of imatinib or sunitinib in 1st and 2nd line)
  • alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS)

    • Objective progression of disease may be documented by RECIST criteria. Any of the following would be sufficient according to RECIST:
  • a 20% increase in the sum of unidimensionally measured target lesions
  • a new lesion
  • unequivocal increase in non-measurable disease.

    • Patients must have disease not amenable to surgery, radiation, or combined modality therapy with curative intent.
    • ECOG performance status 0 - 2.

Exclusion Criteria:

Anticancer therapy within 3 weeks of enrollment including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, or radiotherapy.

  • The following tumor types will not be included:

    • gastrointestinal stromal tumor (except for patients after treatment with imatinib or sunitinib in 1st and 2nd line)
    • chondrosarcoma
    • malignant mesothelioma
    • neuroblastoma.
  • Prior therapy with RAD001 (everolimus) or other rapamycins (sirolimus, temsirolimus).
  • Neurotoxicity > grade 2 CTC.
  • Radiation of the lung.

Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply
