Trial identifier NCT01121939, SCRI GI 135


The purpose of this Phase II trial will be to define the activity of a VEGF inhibitor

bevacizumab, HER1/HER2 inhibitor pertuzumab, and sandostatin for patients with

advanced neuroendocrine cancers. In particular, the efficacy of bevacizumab and

pertuzumab treatment is of great interest. The primary endpoint of this trial will be

response rate. Toxicity and progression-free survival will be obtained and evaluated.

Study Design

Allocation non-randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
combination of bevacizumab, pertuzumab, and sandostatin for patients with advanced neuroendocrine cancers
bevacizumab Avastin
15 mg/kg IV Day 1. The first dose should be administered over 90 minutes. If no adverse reactions occur after the initial dose, the second dose should be administered over a minimum of 60 minutes. If no adverse reactions occur after the second dose, all subsequent doses should be administered over a minimum of 30 minutes. Bevacizumab will be infused prior to pertuzumab.
pertuzumab Omnitarg
840 mg IV loading dose infused over 60 minutes. The loading dose is given on Cycle 1, Day 1 or as below. Subsequent doses of pertuzumab are 420 mg IV. If the patient tolerates the initial infusion over 60 minutes, the patient may receive subsequent infusions over 30 minutes. Otherwise, pertuzumab should be infused over 60 minutes. Patients should be observed for 30 minutes after completing the pertuzumab infusion. If a patient misses a dose of pertuzumab for 1 cycle (i.e., 2 sequential cycles or administrations are 6 weeks or more apart), a re-loading dose (840 mg) of pertuzumab should be given. If re-loading pertuzumab is administered, subsequent doses of 420 mg will then be given every 3 weeks, starting 3 weeks later.
sandostatin lar® depot Octreotide
30 mg will be given every 28 days by IM injection. The dose of sandostatin may be increased, at the discretion of the treating physician, if necessary to control symptoms related to tumor secretion of vasoactive peptides.

Patients >=18 years of age. 9. Patients must have a life expectancy >12 weeks. 10. Patient must be accessible for treatment and follow-up. 11. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test performed <=7 days prior to start of treatment. Women of childbearing potential must use effective birth control measures during treatment. If a woman becomes pregnant or suspects she is pregnant while participating in this study, she must agree to inform her treating physician immediately. 12. Patients must be able to understand the nature of the study and give written informed consent, and comply with study requirements Exclusion Criteria: 1. Patients with poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma, highgrade neuroendocrine carcinoma, adenocarcinoid, goblet cell carcinoid, atypical carcinoid, anaplastic carcinoid, and small cell carcinoma are not eligible. 2.
