Phase phase 1
Targets VEGF, FLT-3, KIT, PDGF
Sponsor Centre Leon Berard
Collaborator Ministry of Health, France
Start date March 2011
End date May 2016
Trial size 18 participants
Trial identifier NCT01308034, 2010-021551-11, RT - SUTENT

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of continuous dosing of sunitinib in association with radiotherapy in patients with non GIST (gastro intestinal stromal tumor) sarcomas who cannot be treated by surgery.

The primary objective of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of continuous dosing of sunitinib in association with radiotherapy in patients with non GIST sarcomas who cannot be treated by surgery.

This study is a multicentre, open-label phase I with dose escalation : 3 dose levels.

3-6 patients will be included at each dose level.3-18 patients will be included in the study.

Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
sunitinib
All patients will be treated with sunitinib (3 dose level) once a day (in the morning) for 6 weeks in association with radiotherapy.Radiotherapy will be realised 1-4h after taking sunitinib. Dose level 1 : 12.5 mg once daily Dose level 2 : 25 mg once daily Dose level 3 : 50 mg once daily. Authorization to include a patient in the upper step will be given only if the deadline of 14 weeks after the start of treatment of last patient included were strictly respected and depending of number of DLT occuring.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
the number of DLT occurring at each dose level of sunitinib within 14 weeks after the start of treatment
time frame: within 14 weeks after the start of treatment

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
the number of early toxicities (within 14 weeks after the beginning of treatment) and late toxicities (after 14 weeks and until 12 months after the start of treatment) using NCI-CTC v3.0 and RTOG-EORTC
time frame: within 12 months after the start of treatment
response rate at 6 months using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
time frame: 6 months after the start of treatment
progression free survival measured from the date of inclusion to the date of first evidence of progression or date of death of any cause, or to the date of last follow up
time frame: within 12 months after the start of treatment
evolution of neo-angiogenesis during treatment measured by DCE-US
time frame: within 6 weeks after the start of treatment
correlation between clinical response and change of tumor perfusion measured by DCE-US
time frame: within 12 months after the start of treatment
proportion of patients operable after treatment
time frame: at week 6 after the start of treatment

Official title Phase I Study of Continuous Dosing of Sunitinib in Non GIST Sarcomas With Concomitant Radiotherapy
Principal investigator Jean Yves Blay, PR
Description Study design : 3 dose levels Step 1 : 25 mg once daily Step 2 : 37.5 mg once daily Step 3 : 50 mg once daily 3-6 patients will be included at each of the sunitinib dose levels, depending on the number of DLTs (dose limiting toxicity) occurring in 14 weeks after start of treatment DLT is defined as : any grade 3 or 4 musculoskeletal or cutaneous toxicity within the field of radiation any other toxicity > or = 4 Secondary objectives are : - to evaluate the safety with late toxicities - to estimate the response rate at 6 months - to estimate the progression free survival - to evaluate the proportion of patients with an operable tumour after treatment Exploratory objectives are : - to study evolution during treatment of neo-angiogenesis measured by dynamic contrast enhanced-ultrasonography (DCE-US) - to study the correlation between clinical response and changes of tumor perfusion measured by DCE-US
