Study information

Scientific title

A phase III randomised study evaluating surgery of residual disease in patients with metastatic gastro-intestinal stromal tumor responding to Imatinib mesylate

Acronym

EORTC 62063

Study hypothesis

The two principle objectives for this study are as follows:
1. To evaluate if surgery of residual disease in patients with advanced gastro-intestinal stromal tumour (GIST) responding to imatinib improves the progression free survival
2. To correlate the pharmacokinetics of imatinib and its metabolites in both arms with the pharmacokinetics of imatinib and its metabolites before randomisation

Ethics approval

Central Manchester REC on 04/082009 (ref: 09/H1008/90)

Condition

Topic: National Cancer Research Network; Subtopic: Sarcoma; Disease: Soft Tissue

Intervention

Eligible patients will be randomised after 6 to 12 months from starting imatinib for metastatic disease, to surgery of residual disease (investigational arm) or not. Patients allocated to the investigational arm will be operated within the 12th month from imatinib onset. Post-operative imatinib treatment will be restored as soon as possible after surgery. Patients allocated to the standard arm will continue imatinib treatment according to standard practice. In both arms, patients will be followed for disease progression and/or discontinuation of imatinib therapy whenever that may be. Thereafter, patients will be followed for survival.
