Brief Summary:
This is a randomized phase II non comparative study. Patients with metastatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) Grade 3, will be enrolled in the study and will be randomly assigned to receive FOLFIRI or CAPTEM as second line treatment. Disease control rate (DCR) and safety are primary objectives, secondary objectives are Disease control rate (OS), Progression Free Survival (PFS), quality of life and toxicity of subsequent line of therapy (after Progression Disease PD) with an observational purpose.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neuroendocrine Carcinoma Drug: CPT-11 Drug: Calcio levofolinate Drug: 5-Fluorouracil Drug: Capecitabine Drug: Temozolomide Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a multicenter randomized phase II non comparative study. Patients with metastatic NEC G3, will be enrolled in the study and will be randomly assigned to receive FOLFIRI or CAPTEM as second line treatment The primary objective is to assess DCR and the safety as co-primary objective. The secondary objectives are: OS, PFS, quality of life and toxicity of subsequent line of therapy (after Progression Disease PD) with an observational purpose.

The secondary exploratory objectives are the assessment of the impact of PET with gallium on PFS and the evaluation of biomarkers

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: responses to treatment lasting at least 12 weeks up to 48 months of study period ]
    DCR is defined as the percentage of patients who have achieved complete, partial response and stable disease lasting for at least 12 weeks. DCR will be evaluated using the new international criteria proposed by the Version 1.1 Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST).

  2. Incidence of treatment related adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 60 months ]
    Acute treatment related adverse events and late treatment related adverse events will be evaluated; the late treatment related adverse events is the adverse event that occurred after 30 days from the last treatment cycle. The adverse events will be evaluated according to CTCAE Version 5.0.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: up to 60 months ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the time from treatment start to the time of death from any cause. Subjects who are alive at the time of the final analysis or who have become lost to follow-up will be censored at their last known alive date.

  2. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: up to 60 months ]
    Progression free survival is defined as the time from the start treatment date to the date of first observation of documented disease progression or death due to any cause. Patients without tumor progression at the time of analysis will be censored at their last date of tumor evaluation.

  3. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: responses to treatment lasting at least 12 weeks up to 60 months of study period ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of patients who have achieved complete and partial response for at least 12 weeks from therapy start.

  4. Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ) [ Time Frame: up to 60 months ]
    Quality of life will be evaluated through validated standardized data collection forms from the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire (quality of life questionnaire). Scoring of global health status, functional scales and symptom scales will be calculated according to EORTC QLQ-C30 Scoring Manual.

  5. Evaluation of biomarkers [ Time Frame: up to 60 months ]
    testing for mutational status of Multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 1 (MEN1), death-domain-associated protein (DAXX), α thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome X-linked (ATRX) and Retinoblastoma 1 (RB-1) on primary tumors tissues and for miRNA on blood samples.
