Studien-Informationen

Detailed Description:

This is an interventional, prospective, randomized (1:1), controlled, open label, multicenter

phase IIb study in patients with advanced metastatic colorectal cancer. The scope of the

trial is to evaluate overall survival of either regimen and evaluate safety and tolerability.

Patients with advanced metastatic and inoperable, colorectal cancer who have progressed

on/after or did not tolerate: fluoropyrimidines, oxaliplatin, irinotecan, anti-angiogenic

therapies (bevacizumab, aflibercept, regorafenib or ramucirumab) and when indicated anti-EGFR

(epidermal growth factor receptor) antibodies (cetuximab or panitumumab) will be included in

this trial.

Patients will be stratified by the duration of previous anti-angiogenic therapy ≥ or <12

months in total, BRAF V600E mutation status (mutation vs. wildtype), RAS mutation status

(mutation vs. wildtype), and randomized 1:1 to receive either ramucirumab/TAS102 (arm A) or

TAS102 (arm B). Concurrent use of other chemotherapy is not allowed.

Two interim safety analyses will be conducted when 10 and 40 patients are fully documented in

arm A after receiving 2 cycles (one 4-week cycle comprises ramucirumab 8mg/kg administered at

d1 and d15 and TAS102 35mg/m2 p.o. twice daily administered on d1-5 and d8-12). The analysis

will be reviewed by the lead coordinating investigator (Prof. Dr. Kasper) and members of the

steering committee and then by the data safety monitoring board. It is not planned to

discontinue recruitment for the interim safety analyses.

Arm A (ramucirumab/TAS102) Patients randomized to arm A will receive ramucirumab 8 mg/kg iv

over 60 min on d1+15, q4w and TAS102 35mg/m2 p.o. twice daily (BID) d1-5 and 8-12, q4w until

progression or intolerance or completion of 6 cycles.

Arm B (TAS102) Patients randomized to arm B will receive TAS102 35mg/m2 p.o. twice daily

(BID) d1-5 and 8-12, q4w until progression, intolerance or completion of 6 cycles.

In both arms, tumor assessments (CT or MRI) are performed before enrollment/randomization and

then every 8 weeks (every 2nd cycle) during therapy and every 12 weeks during follow-up until

progression/relapse, death or end of follow-up. A change from CT into MRI in the follow-up

period is possible at any time.

During treatment, clinical visits (blood cell counts, detection of toxicity) will be

performed prior to every treatment dose of ramucirumab or every two weeks in arm B or if

ramucirumab was discontinued in arm A. Safety of TAS102 +/- ramucirumab will be monitored

continuously by careful monitoring of all adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events

(SAEs) reported. Every 4 weeks during therapy Quality of life (QoL) will be assessed using

the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life

Questionnaire-C30 (EORTC-QLQ-C30) and the EuroQol 5 dimensions 5-level version (EQ-5D-5L).

Ein-/Ausschlusskriterien

Inclusion Criteria:

tolerate, refuse or have contraindications to: fluoropyrimidines, oxaliplatin,

irinotecan, anti-angiogenic therapies (bevacizumab, aflibercept, regorafenib or

ramucirumab) and if indicated anti-EGFR antibodies (cetuximab or panitumumab).

Intolerance is defined as a permanent discontinuation of the respective treatment

resulting from toxicity

2. Signed informed consent before start of specific protocol procedure

3. Histologically or cytologically documented diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the colon or

rectum

4. Presence of at least one measurable site of disease following RECIST 1.1 criteria

2. Adequate coagulation function as defined by International Normalized Ratio (INR)

≤1.5, and a partial thromboplastin time (PTT) ≤5 seconds above the ULN (upper

limit of normal) (unless receiving anticoagulation therapy). Patients receiving

warfarin/phenprocoumon must be switched to low molecular weight heparin and have

achieved a stable coagulation profile prior to first dose of protocol therapy

3. Serum creatinine ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal or creatinine clearance (measured

via 24-hour urine collection) ≥40 mL/minute (that is, if serum creatinine is >1.5

be performed)

4. Urinary protein ≤1+ on dipstick or routine urinalysis (UA; if urine dipstick or

routine analysis is ≥2+, a 24-hour urine collection for protein must demonstrate

<1000 mg of protein in 24 hours to allow participation in this protocol)

5. Bilirubin ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal, AST and ALT ≤3.0 x upper limit of normal,

study protocol

10. Female and male patients ≥18. Patients in reproductive age must be willing to use

adequate contraception during the study and for 7 months after the end of ramucirumab

treatment (appropriate contraception is defined as surgical sterilization (e.g.,

bilateral tubal ligation, vasectomy) or hormonal contraception (implantable, patch,

oral). Women who use a hormonal contraception method should use an additional barrier

method like IUD, male or female condom with spermicidal gel, diaphragm, sponge,

cervical cap). Female patients with childbearing potential need to have a negative

pregnancy test within 7 days before study start (There are no data that indicate

special gender distribution. Therefore, patients will be enrolled in the study

gender-independently.)

Heilung bei fortgeschrittenem Darmkrebs

Die Fortschritte in der Diagnostik und Therapie der kolorektalen Karzinome (CRC) haben in den vergangenen 10 Jahren zu einer kontinuierlichen Abnahme der Sterblichkeit geführt. Unter dem Begriff Kolorektalkarzinom werden Dickdarm -, Rektum- und Analkarzinom zusammengefasst und auch im Krebsregister gemeinsam erfasst. Es gibt sowohl eine Leitlinie Kolorektales Karzinom (1) als auch separate Onkopedia-Leitlinienempfehlungen für das Kolonkarzinom (2) und das Rektumkarzinom (3).

„Ich hatte große Träume für mein Leben, jetzt denke ich oft viel, viel kurzfristiger“, sagt die 25-jährige Studentin Mia*, die vor anderthalb Jahren an Krebs erkrankte. Nach der Diagnose musste sie ihr Studium unterbrechen, ihre Familienplanung in Frage stellen und auch mit ihrem Freundeskreis einen neuen Umgang finden. Sie ist eine von rund 15.000 jungen Menschen, die jährlich im Alter von 18 bis 39 Jahren die Diagnose Krebs erhalten.
