Ziv-aflibercept in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced, Unresectable, or Metastatic Gynecologic Soft Tissue Sarcoma
This phase II trial is studying how well ziv-aflibercept works in treating patients with locally advanced, unresectable or metastatic gynecologic soft tissue sarcoma. Ziv-aflibercept may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

- Objective response rate, evaluated according to the RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Incidence of disease stabilization, as measured by progression-free survival at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Survival statistics will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Standard descriptive statistics, such as the mean, median, range and proportion, will be used to summarize the patient sample and to estimate parameters of interest. 95% confidence intervals will be provided for estimates of interest where possible.

|Study Start Date:||September 2006|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (ziv-aflibercept)
Patients receive ziv-aflibercept IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

I. To assess the objective response of recurrent or metastatic gynecologic soft-tissue sarcomas to VEGF-Trap (ziv-aflibercept).
II. To assess the incidence of disease stabilization, as measured by 6-month progression-free survival, in patients with recurrent or metastatic gynecologic soft-tissue sarcomas treated with VEGF-Trap.
I. To assess time-to-progression and overall survival in patients with recurrent or metastatic gynecologic soft-tissue sarcoma treated with VEGF-Trap.
* As of 24 October 2012, overall survival follow-up is to be discontinued for the one remaining patient on long term follow-up, who has been off protocol therapy for at least 3 years. Time to progression and median survival times have been based on the currently available data.
II. To assess the toxicity associated with VEGF-Trap in patients with recurrent or metastatic gynecologic soft-tissue sarcoma.
III. To characterize the population pharmacokinetics of VEGF-Trap and to explore for demographic and clinical covariates
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients are stratified according to histology (uterine leiomyosarcoma vs malignant mixed mullerian tumor/carcinosarcoma). Patients receive ziv-aflibercept over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients undergo blood collection at baseline, every 8 weeks during treatment, and 60 days after completion of study treatment for population pharmacokinetic analysis using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 4 weeks and then every 3 months thereafter.
