Further study details as provided by Radboud University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • identify the recommended doses for the combination of sorafenib and sirolimus for subsequent phase II studies

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • to determine the safety profile of the combination therapy of sorafenib with sirolimus
  • to determine, if possible, the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of sorafenib and sirolimus in combination therapy
  • to analyze pharmacokinetic PK profiles (AUC, Cmax) during combination therapy for sorafenib and sirolimus
  • to evaluate efficacy of the combination descriptively (response rate and rate of stable diseases)

Study Start Date: June 2007
Primary Completion Date: May 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with histological or cytological confirmed advanced solid tumor, which is refractory to standard therapies or for which no standard therapy exists and for which there is a rationale for the therapeutic use of a combination of sorafenib and sirolimus (especially metastic RCC, malignant melanoma, HCC, NSCLC, pancreatic cancer, hormone refractory prostate cancer).
  • Men or women of at least 18 years
  • Patients who have an ECOG status of 0 or 1
  • Patients who have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks
  • Adequate bone marrow, liver and renal function
  • Negative pregnancy test for female patients of childbearing potential
  • Women and men enrolled into this trial must use adequate birth control measures during the course of the trial.
  • Signed informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of serious cardiac disease
  • Active clinically serious bacterial, viral or fungal infections (> grade 2).
  • Known history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or chronic hepatitis B or C.
  • Clinically symptomatic brain or meningeal metastasis.
  • Patients with seizure disorders requiring medication (such as steroids or antiepileptics).
  • Patients with evidence or history of bleeding diathesis.
  • Substance abuse, medical, psychological or social conditions that may interfere with the patients participation in the study or evaluation of the study results.
  • Concomitant treatment with strong CYP3A4 inductors (such as rifampicin, St. John´s Wort) or CYP3A4 inhibitors (such as ketoconazole, voriconazole, itraconazole, diltiazem, verapamil, erythromycin). Moderate or weak CYP3A4 modifiers should be used concomitantly only after careful assessment of risk-benefit ratio. Concomitant use of carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin or chronic use of dexamethasone is excluded
