Brief Summary:
This trial intends to test the efficacy and safety of RAD001 in patients with advanced sarcoma who failed to conventional chemotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Soft Tissue Sarcomas Bone Sarcomas Drug: RAD001 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This multicenter, phase II trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of everolimus in patients with metastatic or recurrent bone and soft tissue sarcoma after failure of anthracycline and/or ifosfamide.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 41 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Multicenter Trial of RAD001 in Patients With Metastatic or Recurrent Sarcomas
Study Start Date : April 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: RAD001
RAD001 was given as 10 mg orally once daily, and one cycle was defined as 28 days.
Drug: RAD001
Other Name: Everolimus

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival rate at 16 weeks [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Determined as the proportion of progression-free (complete response, partial response and stable disease) at 16 weeks of treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Defined as the time from the initiation of everolimus to disease progression or death, whichever occurred first.

  2. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Defined from the initiation of everolimus to death of any cause.

  3. Response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Defined as the proportion of complete response and partial response per RECIST criteria.

  4. Toxicity [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Any adverse events occurred during the treatment with study drug.
