Famitinib in Treating Patients With Recurrent and/or Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC)
A Single-arm, Open, Multicenter, Phase II Study of Famitinib as ≥Third Line Treatment in Patients With Recurrent and/or Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC)

RATIONALE: Famitinib is a tyrosin-inhibitor agent targeting at c-Kit, VEGFR2, PDGFR, VEGFR3, Flt1 and Flt3. Phase I study has shown that the drug's toxicity is manageable.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well famitinib works in treating patients with recurrent and/or metastatic NPC.
