Bavituximab and Sorafenib Tosylate in Treating Patients With Advanced Liver Cancer
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||hepatocellular carcinoma, liver cancer|
|Treatment||bavituximab and sorafenib|
|Phase||phase 1/phase 2|
|Sponsor||University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center|
|Start date||January 2011|
|End date||December 2016|
|Trial size||56 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01264705, STU 062010-150|
This is a non-randomized, open-label, single-institution phase I/II therapeutic trial of bavituximab and sorafenib in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study will be activated at the UT Southwestern Medical Center, comprised of The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Hospitals-St. Paul and Parkland Memorial Hospital System. Advanced HCC is defined as disease that is not amenable to surgical resection or orthotopic liver transplantation or is metastatic in nature.

Safety as measured by the number of participants with adverse events.
time frame: The phase I component is expected to be complete within 3 months.
Time to Progression (phase II)as measured by abdominal magnetic resonance imaging.
time frame: The phase II component is expected to be complete within 2 years.
time frame: 2 years
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: 1. Patients must have a diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma by at least one criterion listed below: - Histologically confirmed. - MRI or CT consistent with liver cirrhosis and at least one solid liver lesion >2 cm with early enhancement and delayed enhancement washout regardless of AFP. - AFP >400 ng/ml and evidence of at least one solid liver lesion >2 cm regardless of specific imaging characteristics on CT or MRI. 2. Locally advanced or metastatic disease. 3. Patients with locally advanced disease must have disease deemed to be unresectable or not eligible for hepatic transplantation. Determination will occur in the weekly GI DMT meeting by surgical oncologists and transplant surgeons. 4. Measurable disease, as defined as lesions that can accurately be measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be measured) according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST, version 1.1) at least 2 cm with conventional techniques or at least 1 cm with spiral computed tomography. 5. Child-Pugh Score A. 6. Age ≥ 18 years. 7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Score of 0-2. 8. Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,500 cells/mm3. 9. Platelet count ≥ 75,000 cells/mm3. 10. Total bilirubin ≤ 3.0 mg/dl. 11. Hemoglobin ≥ 8.5 g/dl. 12. AST and ALT ≤ 5.0 times upper limit of normal. 13. D-dimer ≤ 3 times upper limit of normal. 14. INR ≤ 1.8 (therapeutic anticoagulation allowed as long as medically indicated. Exclusion Criteria: 1. History of bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy. 2. Symptomatic or clinically active brain metastases. 3. Major surgery within previous 4 weeks. 4. History of thromboembolic events (including both pulmonary embolisms and deep vein thrombosis); central venous catheter-related thrombosis > 6 months prior is allowed. 5. Prior adjuvant therapy with sorafenib or other Raf/MEK/RAS or VEGFR inhibitors. Prior adjuvant therapy is allowed provided it was completed > 6 months ago and there is documented recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma.
|Official title||A Phase I/II Study of Bavituximab and Sorafenib In Patients With Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma|
|Principal investigator||Adam C Yopp, MD|
|Description||The investigators are looking for men or women aged 18 years or older with hepatocellular carcinoma not suitable for surgical resection or hepatic transplantation. Prior locoregional therapy including but not limited to transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or ethanol injection is allowed as long as the treatment was 4 weeks previous. Patients must be Child-Pugh A with no previous treatment with sorafenib or other vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors.|
