Study Description
Brief Summary:
Efficacity of Paclitaxel in association or not with Bevacizumab in treatment of angiosarcoma

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Angiosarcoma Drug: Paclitaxel Drug: Bevacizumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Randomization is stratified :

  • angiosarcoma in irradiated region : yes / no
  • visceral angiosarcoma : yes / no

All patient will received a maximum of 6 cycles of weekly Paclitaxel (Arm A and B) in association or not with Bevacizumab (ArmB).

1 cycle = 28 days Treatment by Bevacizumab is to continue beyond the 6th cycle, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity

Arm A and B:

Day 1, D8 and D15 Paclitaxel : 90 mg/m², IV weekly with premedication

Arm B :

Day 1 and D15 Bevacizumab : 10 mg/kg and then, Bevacizumab : 15 mg/kg/3 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity

administration of paclitaxel drug during cycle of 28 days (6 cycles Max) + blood sample on day 1, 8, 15, 29 and 57
Drug: Paclitaxel
Day 1, 8 and 15 : Paclitaxel 90 mg/m², IV over 1h, during 6 cycles (1 cycle = 28 days)
Other Name: Taxol
Arm B : Paclitaxel + Bevacizumab

administration of paclitaxel drug during per cycle of 28 days (6 cycles Max) + Bevacizumab every two weeks during paclitaxel cycles then every 3 weeks during P cycles until disease progression or inacceptable toxicity

+ blood sample on day 1, 8, 15, 29 and 57

Drug: Paclitaxel
Day 1, 8 and 15 : Paclitaxel 90 mg/m², IV over 1h, during 6 cycles (1 cycle = 28 days)
Other Name: Taxol
Drug: Bevacizumab

Bevacizumab until progression or inacceptable toxicity :

  • During the cycles of chemotherapy : Day 1 and D15 : 10 mg/kg,IV
  • After 6 cycles of chemotherapy : 15 mg/kg, IV
Other Name: Avastin

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free rate after 6 months of treatment [ Time Frame: after 6 months of treatment ]
    Stable disease, complete response and partial response according to RECIST 1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response at 3, 6, 9 months of treatment [ Time Frame: at 3, 6, 9 months of treatment ]
    Stable disease, complete response and partial response according to RECIST 1.1

  2. Median progression-free rate [ Time Frame: an average time period of 1 year ]

    Median time for both cohort between :

    • date of inclusion
    • date of clinical or radiological progression

  3. Global median survival [ Time Frame: an average time period of 18 months ]

    Median time for both cohort between :

    • date of inclusion
    • date of death whatever the cause

  4. Tolerance [ Time Frame: during the study ]
    According to NCI-CTCAE v4.0

  5. Correlation between efficacity and serum expression of anti angiogenic factors [ Time Frame: Day 1, 8, 15, 29 and 57 ]
    Blood samples at different times

  6. Correlation between efficacity and beta-tubuline III expression in tissue [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
    Paraffin blocks
