Cabozantinib-S-Malate in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Endometrial Cancer

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified March 2017 by National Cancer Institute (NCI)

National Cancer Institute (NCI) Identifier:
First received: September 3, 2013

Last verified: March 2017
This phase II trial studies how well cabozantinib-s-malate works in treating patients with endometrial cancer that has come back (recurrent) or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Cabozantinib-s-malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

Detailed Description:


I. Determine efficacy of single agent cabozantinib-s-malate (cabozantinib) in women previously receiving one line of chemotherapy for metastatic endometrial cancer or with progression within 12 months of completing adjuvant therapy, with co-primary endpoints of objective response rate by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 and progression-free-survival at 12 weeks (PFS).


I. Correlation of clinical response with: baseline molecular status of archival tumor (hepatocyte growth factor receptor [c-met] amplification & mutation status).


Patients receive cabozantinib-s-malate orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 4 weeks.
