Sponsor Centre Oscar Lambret
Collaborator Bayer
Start date June 2013
End date March 2017
Trial size 196 participants
Trial identifier NCT01900743, 2012-005743-24, REGO-SARC-1214


This is an international (France, Austria and Germany), randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase II study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of regorafenib in patients with histologically proven metastatic and/or unresectable Soft Tissue Sarcoma (STS) after failure or intolerance to doxorubicin (or other anthracycline).

Five cohorts will be defined:

Cohort A: Liposarcoma Cohort B: Leiomyosarcoma Cohort C: Synovial sarcoma Cohort D: other sarcomas (see Appendix C) Cohort E: Leiomyosarcoma, Synovial sarcoma and other sarcomas listed in Appendix C previously treated with pazopanib Approximately 226 patients who meet the eligibility criteria will be randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to one of the treatment groups.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Age ≥18 years - Histological documentation of soft tissue sarcoma (including uterus)with available Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) blocks. Eligible soft tissue sarcomas are non-adipocytic soft tissue sarcomas - Prior treatment with doxorubicin or other anthracycline. Moreover, patients eligible in the Cohort E must have received pazopanib - Metastatic disease not amenable to surgical resection with curative intent - Documentation of progression within the last 6 months - Measurable disease, defined as at least 1 unidimensionally measurable lesion on a CT scan as defined by RECIST 1.1. - Performance status ≤1(ECOG) - Life expectancy ≤ 3 months - Adequate bone marrow, renal, and hepatic function: - INR/PTT ≤1.5 x ULN Patients who are therapeutically treated with an agent such as warfarin or heparin will be allowed to participate provided that no prior evidence of underlying abnormality in coagulation parameters exists. Close monitoring will be performed until INR/PTT is stable. - Women of childbearing potential and male patients must agree to use adequate contraception for the duration of study participation and up to 3 months following completion of therapy. - Recovery to NCI-CTCAE v4.0 Grade 0 or 1 level or recovery to baseline preceding the prior treatment from any previous drug/procedure related toxicity (except alopecia, anemia, and hypothyroidism). - In the assessment of the investigator, patient is able to comply with study requirements - Signed, IRB-approved written informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - More than 3 lines of systemic treatment for metastatic sarcoma - Histological subtypes listed in Appendix C (especially GIST, osseous sarcoma, embryonal or alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma). Patients with liposarcoma are not eligible in the cohort E - Primary bone sarcoma - Prior treatment with regorafenib - Known history of or concomitant malignancy likely to affect life expectancy in the judgment of the investigator - Pregnant or breastfeeding patients. Women of childbearing potential must have a pregnancy test performed before start of treatment - Major surgical procedure, open biopsy, or significant traumatic injury within 28 days before start of treatment - Active cardiac disease including any of the following: Congestive heart failure (NYHA) ≥Class 2, Unstable angina (angina symptoms at rest), new-onset angina (begun within the last 3 months), Cardiac arrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmic therapy (beta blockers or digoxin are permitted) - Uncontrolled hypertension (SBP >150 mmHg or diastolic pressure >90 mmHg despite optimal medical management) - Arterial or venous thrombotic or embolic events such as cerebrovascular accident (including transient ischemic attacks), deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolism (within the last 6 months) - Ongoing infection >Grade 2 according to NCI-CTCAE v4.0 - Known history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection - Known history of chronic hepatitis B or C - Patients with seizure disorder requiring medication - History of organ allograft - Evidence or history of bleeding diathesis. Any hemorrhage or bleeding event > Grade 3 within 4 weeks of start of treatment - Non-healing wound, ulcer, or bone fracture - Renal failure requiring hemo- or peritoneal dialysis - Dehydration according to NCI-CTC v 4.0 Grade >1 - Substance abuse, medical, psychological, or social conditions that may interfere with the patient's participation in the study or evaluation of the study results - Known hypersensitivity to any of the study drugs, study drug classes, or excipients in the formulation, including lactose - Interstitial lung disease with ongoing signs and symptoms at the time of informed consent - Inability to swallow, malabsorption condition - Pleural effusion or ascites that causes respiratory compromise (Grade 2 dyspnea)

Additional Information

Official title Activity and Safety of Regorafenib in Patients With Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma Previously Treated With Anthracycline-based Chemotherapy : a Multinational, Randomized, Phase II, Placebo-controlled Trial
Principal investigator Thomas BRODOWICZ, MD, PhD
Description The standard of care for metastatic soft tissue sarcoma is doxorubicin +/- ifosfamide. After failure or intolerance to doxorubicin, there is no standard of care. In Europe, two are currently approved for the treatment of soft tissue sarcoma after failure/intolerance to doxorubicin: trabectedin (Yondelis®) for all histological subtype and pazopanib (Votrient ®) for all subtypes excluding liposarcomas. Nevertheless, none of these drugs improve the overall survival over placebo. The study is composed of 3 periods: 1. A Screening Period, 2. A Treatment Period, 3. And a Survival Follow-up Period. Patients randomized to be treated with regorafenib will receive the treatment orally for 3 weeks of every 4 week (28 days) cycle (ie, 3 weeks on/1 week off). Patients randomized to the placebo arm will be treated for 3 weeks of every 4 weeks cycle (ie, 3 weeks on/1 week off). In addition to the regorafenib and placebo treatments, patients will receive best supportive care. Best supportive care includes any method to preserve the comfort and dignity of the patients and excludes any disease-specific anti-neoplastic therapy such as any kinase inhibitor,chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgical intervention. Patients receiving placebo, who experience disease progression may be offered open-label regorafenib(cross-over option).
