Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients ≥ 18 years - Histologically-proven, locally advanced, or metastatic STS (excluding extraosseus Ewing sarcoma) - Patients not amenable to surgery, radiotherapy, or combined-modality therapy with curative intent - Patients untreated or previously treated with one or more systemic regimen - ECOG Performance status 0-2 (Appendix A) - At least one untreated (not previously irradiated) target lesion that could be measured in one dimension, according to RECIST criteria - A life expectancy of 12 weeks or more - Adequate baseline bone marrow, hepatic and renal function, defined as follows: - Neutrophils > 1.5 x 109/L and platelets > 100 x 109/L - Bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN - AST and/or ALT < 2.5 x ULN in absence of liver metastasis or < 5 x ULN in presence of liver metastasis - Serum creatinine < 1.5 x ULN - Creatinine clearance (estimated according to Cockcroft-Gault formula) ≥ 50 ml/min - Patients may have had prior treatment providing the following conditions are met before treatment start: - Surgery and radiation therapy: wash-out period of 14 days - Systemic therapy: wash-out period of 21 days - Patients must give written informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Patients may not receive any other investigational agents while on study - Patients with myocardial infarction within the last six (6) months, unstable angina, New York Heart Association (NYHA) grade II or greater congestive heart failure, or serious cardiac arrhythmia requiring medication - LVEF < 55% (only for patients candidate for doxorubicin treatment) - Uncontrolled hypertension - Prolonged QTc interval (congenital or acquired) > 450 ms - History or evidence upon physical examination of CNS disease unless adequately treated (e.g., primary brain tumor, any brain metastasis, seizure not controlled with standard medical therapy) or history of stroke - Patients with active or uncontrolled systemic disease/infections or with serious illness or medical conditions, which is incompatible with the protocol - Known hypersensitivity/allergic reaction or contraindications to human albumin preparations or to any of the excipients - Any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol - Pregnancy or lactation. Patients - both males and females - with reproductive potential (i.e. menopausal for less than 1-year and not surgically sterilized) must practice effective contraceptive measures throughout the study.

Additional Information

Official title NGR016: Randomized Phase II Study Evaluating Two Doses of NGR-hTNF Administered Either as Single Agent or in Combination With Doxorubicin in Patients With Advanced Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS)
Description Considering the safety/toxicity profile of NGR-hTNF characterized by mild-to-moderate constitutional symptoms when given either every three weeks or weekly both at low (0.8 µg/m^2) and high dose (45 µg/m^2); the reversibility of these adverse events generally occurring only during the infusion time; the absence of overlapping toxicities with chemotherapeutic agents; and the safety and preliminary antitumor activity observed in phase Ib trial with doxorubicin, seems justified to evaluate in a randomized 4-arm phase II trial the preliminary antitumor activity of two doses of NGR-hTNF (0.8 µg/m^2 and 45 µg/m^2) administered weekly either alone or in combination with a standard dose of doxorubicin (60 mg/m^2 every three weeks).
