This study has been completed.
National Cheng-Kung University Hospital
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
National Health Research Institutes, Taiwan Identifier:
First received: May 20, 2010
Last updated: October 16, 2015
Last verified: August 2012

Primary Objective:

  1. To define the recommended dose for phase II study of S-1 combined with sorafenib
  2. To evaluate the dose-limiting toxicities of the combination therapy

Secondary Objectives:

  1. To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of sorafenib and S-1 in the combination therapy
  2. To investigate the impact of genetic polymorphisms of metabolic genes on the PK of sorafenib and S-1, respectively, as well as on the toxicity profile of the combination.
  3. To determine the changes of biomarkers between pre- and post-treatments.
