End date December 2016
Trial size 124 participants
Trial identifier NCT01929616, 2012-005655-16 EUDRACT


The general objectives are to evaluate activity and the safety of regorafenib in a population of patients bearing advanced, refractory colorectal cancers and to explore the different downstream molecular pathways to identify tumor response and resistance mechanisms.

Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
A treatment cycle is defined as a 4 weeks period. Regorafenib will be administered once a day orally at a dose of 160 mg (4 tablets of 40 mg), for 3 weeks.
regorafenib stivarga (registred name)
Patients will receive 160 mg regorafenib 1/day 3 weeks out of 4.

Primary Outcomes

Overall survival (OS)
time frame: 2 years from first patient in

Secondary Outcomes

Occurence of Adverse events
time frame: Every 28 days till 28 days after stopping therapy. An average of 2 months is expected.
Evaluation of tumour response
time frame: Every 2 months till progression of the disease. An average of 2 months is expected.
Metabolic response assessed by FDG PET
time frame: 2 FDGPET will be perfomed : at Baseline (day 0) and at D14
Molecular aberrations
time frame: at day 0 (before treatment begins) and at D14, then repeated every 2 months until progression. An average of 2 months is expected.

Additional Information

Official title Regorafenib Assessment in Refractory Advanced Colorectal Cancer
Description The primary objective is to identify in a population of patients bearing advanced, refractory colorectal cancers, those who draw no benefit from treatment with regorafenib. There is no specific hypothesis underlying sample size and the study is therefore to be seen as exploratory. Secondary objectives: - To analyze PFS and response rate (RR) in relationship with the same covariates as for OS - To assess regorafenib efficacy (OS, PFS, RR) and safety profile in this study population. - To assess the Disease control rate (DCR = Complete response [CR] + partial response [PR] + stable disease [SD]) - To compare the relative benefit (OS, PFS) of regorafenib according to history of treatment with bevacizumab.
