This phase II trial is studying how well brivanib alaninate works in treating patients with recurrent or persistent endometrial cancer. Brivanib alaninate 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.

Condition Intervention Phase
Endometrial Adenocarcinoma
Endometrial Clear Cell Adenocarcinoma
Recurrent Uterine Corpus Carcinoma
Drug: Brivanib Alaninate
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Objective tumor response defined by RECIST [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Form study entry until disease progression, death or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Characterized graphically with Kaplan-Meier estimates and using descriptive statistics.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: From entry into the study to death or the date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Characterized graphically with Kaplan-Meier estimates and using descriptive statistics.

  • Frequency of adverse effects defined as any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease that occurs in a patient administered a medical treatment, whether the event is considered related or unrelated to the medical treatment [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Severity of adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v3.0 criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 43
Study Start Date: July 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (brivanib alaninate)
Patients receive oral brivanib alaninate once daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: Brivanib Alaninate
Given orally
Other Names:
  • BMS 582664
  • BMS-582664

Detailed Description:


I. To assess the activity of brivanib alaninate, in terms of 6-month progression-free survival (PFS) and objective tumor response, in patients with recurrent or persistent endometrial carcinoma.


I. To determine the duration of PFS and overall survival of these patients. II. To determine the nature and degree of toxicity of brivanib alaninate in these patients as assessed by CTCAE v3.0.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral brivanib alaninate once daily 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 every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
