LCI-GI-APX-NIN-001: Nintedanib in Metastatic Appendiceal Carcinoma

NCT03287947

Description:

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of nintedanib in subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on previous studies, the anticancer activityof nintedanib in lung and ovarian cancer trials, along with the similarities between appendiceal and colorectal cancer and potentially ovarian cancer, warrant additional investigation for the optimal treatment of metastatic appendiceal carcinomas.

Purpose

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of nintedanib in subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on previous studies, the anticancer activityof nintedanib in lung and ovarian cancer trials, along with the similarities between appendiceal and colorectal cancer and potentially ovarian cancer, warrant additional investigation for the optimal treatment of metastatic appendiceal carcinomas.

Detailed Description

      The primary study objective is to evaluate the disease control rate. The secondary study
      objectives are to evaluate safety and toxicity, objective response rate, overall and 6-month
      progression free survival, and overall survival. Exploratory study objectives include
      evaluation of serum and ascites VEGF, hypertension, and paracentesis frequency in subjects
      with ascites at study entry.

          5. Persistence of clinically relevant therapy related toxicity from previous chemo and/or
             radiotherapy as determined by the investigator.

             radiotherapy, symptomatic, requiring treatment with anti-convulsants; dexamethasone
             therapy will be allowed if administered as stable dose for at least one month) or

          7. Radiographic evidence of cavitary or necrotic tumors.

          8. Tumors with radiographic evidence (CT or MRI) of local invasion of major blood
             vessels.

          9. Anti-neoplastic treatment for appendiceal cancer, with other investigational drugs or
             treatment in another clinical trial within 30 days before start of study treatment.

         10. Therapeutic anticoagulation with drugs requiring INR monitoring (except low-dose
             heparin and/or heparin flush as needed for maintenance of an in-dwelling intravenous
             devise) or anti-platelet therapy (except for low-dose therapy with acetylsalicylic
             acid less than or equal to 325mg per day).

         11. Major injuries and/or surgery within the past 4 weeks prior to start of study
             treatment, incomplete wound healing or planned surgery during the on-treatment study
             period.

         12. History of clinically significant hemorrhagic or thromboembolic event in the past 6

             psychiatric, infectious disease or active ulcers (gastro-intestinal tract, skin) or
             laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation
             or study drug administration and in the judgment of the investigator would make the
             subject inappropriate for entry into the study.

         25. Sexually active women of child-bearing potential and men who are sexually active with
             women of child-bearing potential and unwilling to use at least 2 medically acceptable

             contraceptives, some intrauterine devices or vasectomized partner for participating
             females, condoms for participating males) during the trial and for at least three
             months after end of active therapy. Female subjects will be considered of
             child-bearing potential unless surgically sterilized by hysterectomy or bilateral
             tubal/salpingectomy, or post-menopausal for at least 2 years.

         26. Pregnancy or breast feeding; female participants of child-bearing potential must have

        with trial participation.

        cc. Significant weight loss (> 10% of baseline weight) within past 2 months prior to
        consenting for the trial. Removal of ascites should not be calculated as weight loss.
