Conditions gastrointestinal stromal tumor, metastatic cancer
Treatment imatinib mesylate
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Niigata University Medical and Dental Hospital
Start date October 2008
End date September 2014
Trial size 37 participants
Trial identifier NCT00764595, CDR0000615628, NIIGATAU-TRIGIST0805


RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of imatinib mesylate and to see how well it works in treating patients with liver metastasis from a gastrointestinal stromal tumor.

Official title Phase II Multicenter Clinical Trial on Imatinib Treatment for Patients With Resectable Hepatic Metastasis From Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs)
Principal investigator Tatsuo Kanda, MD
Description OBJECTIVES: - To evaluate the safety and efficacy of imatinib mesylate in patients with resectable hepatic metastasis secondary to gastrointestinal stromal tumor. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate daily. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
