|Official Title:||Randomized Phase II Trial of Paclitaxel, Ifosfamide and Cisplatin (TIP) Versus Bleomycin, Etoposide and Cisplatin (BEP) for Patients With Previously Untreated Intermediate- and Poor-Risk Germ Cell Tumors|
|Study Start Date :||June 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||June 2018|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||June 2018|
Experimental: Paclitaxel, Ifosfamide and Cisplatin (TIP)
Paclitaxel 120 mg/m2 IV over 120-180 min Days 1 and 2 (+/- 4 days)* Mesna 120 mg/m2 IV (duration of infusion per institutional guidelines) approximately 30 minutes prior to initiation of ifosfamide Days 1-5 (+/- 4 days)* Ifosfamide 1200 mg/m2 IV over approximately 60 to 120 min Days 1-5 or per institutional guidelines (mixed 1:1 with mesna) (+/- 4 days)* Mesna** 1200 mg/m2 IV over approximately 60-120 min or per institutional guidelines (mixed 1:1 with ifosfamide)(+/- 4 days)* Cisplatin 20 mg/m2 IV over approximately 30 min Days 1-5 (+/- 4 days)*
**Additional mesna may be given at the discretion of the investigator
*Paclitaxel or Ifosfamide or Mesna or Cisplatin or any combination of these agents can be held as needed for patient safety on a given day between days 1-5 but must be made up within 4 days to avoid a protocol violation.
Active Comparator: Bleomycin, Etoposide and Cisplatin (BEP)
Cisplatin 20 mg/m2 IV over approximately 30 min Days 1-5 (+/- 4 days)* Etoposide 100 mg/m2 IV over approximately 1 hour Days 1-5 (+/- 4 days)* Bleomycin 30 U flat dose IV push Days 2, 8 and 15 (all +/- 4 days)
*Etoposide or Cisplatin or both can be held as needed for patient safety on a given day between days 1-5 but must be made up within 4 days to avoid a protocol violation.
- favorable best response rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Favorable best response is defined as complete response or partial response with negative tumor markers. Patients will be considered evaluable for the primary endpoint of favorable response within the first 6 months if they complete at least 3 cycles of study treatment (without switch to an alternative chemotherapy regimen) and achieve a confirmed partial response with negative markers or confirmed complete response (considered as favorable responses). Patients will also be considered evaluable for the primary endpoint if they develop disease progression during the treatment portion of the study regardless of how many cycles of chemotherapy they received or if they achieve an incomplete response after completion of study treatment (considered as not having a favorable response)."
- overall best response [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Overall best response refers to the best response achieved by a patient to either TIP or BEP over the course of the entire study.
- progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Progression-free survival (PFS) will be calculated from the date of treatment start until disease progression, death, or last followup, whichever comes first. The following are included as PFS events: incomplete response (IR), relapse or disease progression, and death.
- overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Overall survival will be calculated from the date of treatment start until death, regardless of the cause.
- toxicity [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of the last cycle of chemotherapy. ]Toxicity will be assessed based on the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0. The maximum grade of each toxicity will be recorded for each patient over the course of treatment (all cycles). Special emphasis will be placed on comparisons of the frequency of Grade 3/4 toxicities between the TIP and BEP arms.
