Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well trebananib works in treating patients with persistent or recurrent endometrial cancer. Trebananib may stop the growth of endometrial cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Endometrial Adenocarcinoma Endometrial Adenosquamous Carcinoma Endometrial Clear Cell Adenocarcinoma Endometrial Endometrioid Adenocarcinoma, Variant With Squamous Differentiation Endometrial Serous Adenocarcinoma Endometrioid Stromal Sarcoma Recurrent Uterine Corpus Carcinoma Biological: Trebananib Phase 2

Detailed Description:


I. To estimate the proportion of patients with persistent or recurrent endometrial cancer, who survive progression-free for at least 6 months and the proportion of patients who have objective tumor response (complete or partial), treated with AMG 386 (trebananib).

II. To determine the nature and degree of toxicity of AMG 386 in this cohort of patients.


I. To estimate the progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of patients with persistent or recurrent endometrial cancer treated with AMG 386.


Patients receive trebananib intravenously (IV) over 30-60 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, and 21. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From study entry to death or last contact, up to 5 years ]
    The observed length of life from entry into the study to death or the date of last contact.

  2. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Patients whose disease can be evaluated by physical exam, progression was assessed prior to each cycle. CT or MRI if used to follow leasion for measurable disease, up to 5 years ]
    The time from entry until disease progression, death, or date of last contact. Endpoints are progression or death. Patients who are not observed with an endpoint are censored.

  • Patients must have at least one "target lesion" to be used to assess response on this protocol as defined by RECIST 1.1; tumors within a previously irradiated field will be designated as 'non-target" lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence >= 90 days following completion of radiation therapy
  • Patients must not be eligible for a higher priority Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) protocol, if one exists; in general, this would refer to any active GOG phase III or Rare Tumor protocol for the same patient population
