Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the role of addition of an anti-angiogenic agent (Nintedanib/placebo) to conventional combination chemotherapy as concomitant and maintenance treatment in primary advanced or with first relapse of endometrial cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Endometrial Cancer Drug: Nintedanib or Placebo; Carboplatin, Paclitaxel Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This multicenter, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised phase 2 study is evaluating combination chemotherapy with nintedanib in patients with primary advanced stage (3C2 & 4), or with first relapse of endometrial cancer.

Patients are stratified according to:

  1. Stage of disease (stage 3C2 vs. stage 4 vs. recurrent disease)
  2. Prior adjuvant chemotherapy (yes/no)
  3. Disease status (Measurable disease vs. non-measurable /RECIST 1.1)

Patients are randomized to one of the two treatment arms 1:1 randomization:

  • Arm A: Paclitaxel and Carboplatin (6 courses) and Nintedanib (until PD). (Experimental arm)
  • Arm B: Paclitaxel and Carboplatin (6 courses) and Placebo (until PD) (Control Arm)

Primary endpoint is PFS. 148 patients to be enrolled.


Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: A: Nintedanib
Nintedanib 200mg twice daily days 2-21 every 21 days for 6 courses during simultaneous treatment with carboplatin-paclitaxel; afterwards in maintenance 200mg twice daily days 1-21 every 21 days. Treatment continues until progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: Nintedanib or Placebo; Carboplatin, Paclitaxel
Arm A: Nintedanib: 200mg orally twice daily d 2-21 q 21 days x 6 courses; afterwards daily dosing, until PD Arm B: Placebo: orally twice daily d 2-21 q 21 days x 6 courses; afterwards daily dosing, until PD In both arms: 6 courses of standard carboplatin and paclitaxel: Carboplatin AUC 5 iv every 21 days; Paclitaxel 175mg/m2 iv every 21 days. Both drugs are continued for maximum six courses or until unacceptable toxicity

Placebo Comparator: B: Placebo
Placebo twice daily days 2-21 every 21 days for 6 courses during simultaneous treatment with carboplatib-paclitaxel; afterwards in maintenance 200mg twice daily days 1-21 every 21 days. Treatment continues until progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: Nintedanib or Placebo; Carboplatin, Paclitaxel
Arm A: Nintedanib: 200mg orally twice daily d 2-21 q 21 days x 6 courses; afterwards daily dosing, until PD Arm B: Placebo: orally twice daily d 2-21 q 21 days x 6 courses; afterwards daily dosing, until PD In both arms: 6 courses of standard carboplatin and paclitaxel: Carboplatin AUC 5 iv every 21 days; Paclitaxel 175mg/m2 iv every 21 days. Both drugs are continued for maximum six courses or until unacceptable toxicity




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS: Difference in months of Median Progression-Free Survival in experimental arm versus comparator arm [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Superiority of Nintedanib arm vs. placebo arm by median PFS increase of 4 months (from 10 months to 14 months) HR: 1.4; power80%; one-sided alpha: 15%. Inclusion period 18 months. Median PFS matures after 14 months of end inclusion


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PFS in the sub-populations as described under stratification factors [ Time Frame: 32 months ]
    To be measured (in months) and reported

  2. PFS after consecutive treatment (PFS2). To be measured (in months) and reported [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    PFS2 is defined along the same timelines as PFS but accounts for the time from randomization to progression or death by any cause on any subsequent line of anticancer therapy.

  3. Disease Specific Survival (DSS) [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    To be measured (in months) and reported

  4. TSST (Time to Second Subsequent Therapy) [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    To be measured (in months) and reported

  5. TFST (Time to First Subsequent Therapy) [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    To be measured (in months) and reported

  6. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    To be measured (in months) and reported

  7. Response Rate (RR). [ Time Frame: 32 months ]
    To be measured (CRs & PRs in %) and reported

  8. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 32 months ]
    Disease Control Rate (DCR = Complete Response, Partial Response or Stable Disease for at least 12 weeks). To be measured (CRs, PRs & SDs in %) and reported

  9. Patient Related Outcomes (PROs) [ Time Frame: 48 months ]
    Patient questionnaire results to be presented as as narrative (1-10 scale)

  10. Number of patients with Grade 3 through Grade 5 Adverse Events that are related to study drug. [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    NCI CTCAE Version 4.0

  11. Compliance in the two treatment arms [ Time Frame: 32 months ]
    Percentage of missed dosages during the treatment
