This is an open-label, single arm, phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the activity and safety of single-agent axitinib in recurrent or metastatic NPC patients who failed at least one line of platinum based chemotherapy.
Recurrent or Metastatic NPC
||Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase 2 Study of Axitinib in Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To evaluate the efficacy (clinical benefit rate) of single-agent axitinib in patients with recurrent or metastatic NPC, and its impact on disease progression. [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To assess objective response rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To assess duration of response [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To assess progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To assess overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To evaluate the safety and tolerability of axitinib [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To evaluate axitinib plasma pharmacokinetics and to correlate these plasma concentrations with efficacy and safety parameters [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- To study blood and tissue biomarkers and correlate with cancer- and treatment-related outcomes [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
