Purpose

The study will a be a biologically enriched, prospectively stratified phase II trial in RAS wild type metastatic colorectal cancer patients progressing after first-line treatment with oxaliplatin, fluoropyrimidines and an anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody. All patients will receive aflibercept in combination with FOLFIRI according to the Italian label.

Detailed Description

      The study will a be a biologically enriched, prospectively stratified phase II trial in RAS
      wild type metastatic colorectal cancer patients progressing after first-line treatment with
      oxaliplatin, fluoropyrimidines and an anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody. Eligible patients will
      be prospectively allocated to either of two groups according to VEGFR2 levels (ELISA-based
      technique, pg/ml) at study entry.

      Others angiogenetic factors levels concentration before and during treatment. VEGF, PlGF,
      HGF, VEGFR1, IL8, IL1a, T-cad, VEGFR3, SAP, VDBP, neuropilin1, CRP, endoglin plasma
      concentrations will be evaluated before each cycle according to an ELISA-based technique All
      patients will undergo a blood test for retrieving circulating tumor DNA (Liquid Biopsy) at
      selected time-points before and during treatment for determining whether the status of
      selected tumor biomarkers evolve during tumor progression by comparing different ctDNA
      samples.

      All patients will receive aflibercept in combination with FOLFIRI according to the Italian
      label.

    Maximum Eligible Age:N/A
    Minimum Eligible Age:18 Years
    Eligible Gender:All
    Healthy Volunteers:No

    Primary Outcome Measures

    Measure:Overall survival (OS) according to VEGFR2 levels, evaluating the difference in terms of median OS among patients with high VEGFR2 activity and patients with low VEGFR2 activity
    Time Frame:From date of randomization until the date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 3 years
    Safety Issue:
    Description:Overall survival time is defined as the time from inclusion to the date of death. If subject has not died, survival will be censored on the last date the subject was known to be alive (last date of follow-up)

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    Measure:Progression free survival (PFS) defined as the interval between the start of Aflibercept-FOLFIRI therapy to tumor progression or death or last follow up visit if not progressed
    Time Frame:time from the start of treatment untill the date of first documented progression or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 3 years
    Safety Issue:
    Description:PFS time will defined as the time of inclusion until the date of first observed disease progression or death due to any cause, if death occurs before progression is documented
    Measure:Response rate (RR) defined according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST), v. 1.1
    Time Frame:Response of treatment is evaluated according to the RECIST criteria at the end of chemotherapyassessed up to 24 weeks
    Safety Issue:
    Description:All patients must be considered in response analysis, including those who discontinue treatment or who die for any reason prior to respnse evaluation
    Measure:Toxicity Profile defined according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v. 4.03
    Time Frame:every 4 cycles of chemotherapy (each cycle is 15 days), up to 16 weeks
    Safety Issue:
    Description:Treatment-emergent adverse events, drug-related adverse events and safety laboratory parameters will be analysed by CTCAE grade
    Measure:Angiogenetic factors levels concentration before and during treatment.
    Time Frame:evaluated before treatment and before each cycle (each cycle is 15 days) according to an ELISA-based technique, through completion, an overage of 1 year
    Safety Issue:
    Description:Angiogenetic factors levels concentration (VEGF, PlGF, HGF, VEGF-R, IL8, IL1a, T-cad, VEGFR3, SAP, VDBP, neuropilin1, CRP, endoglin plasma concentrations)
