Axitinib as Second-line Treatment for Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma
This is a phase II study of axitinib as the second-line on the treatment of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
The purpose of this study is a proof-of-concept study to see if axitinib has any anti-tumor effect in HCC. The primary endpoint is disease stabilization that lasts for at least 8 weeks without progression of tumor-related symptoms.

All enrolled patients will receive axitinib, 5 mg orally twice daily with food, until objective disease progression, development of unacceptable toxicity, or voluntary discontinuation by the subjects.
Other Name: Axitinib
Axitinib can can inhibit the activity of multiple angiogenesis-related signaling pathways. Promising anti-tumor activity has been demonstrated in patients with renal cell carcinoma, thyroid cancer, and melanoma. The potent anti-angiogenic activity of axitinib makes it a promising agent for the treatment of HCC.
This is a single-arm, open-label phase II trial. Eligible patients will receive axitinib, starting at 5 mg orally twice daily in the fasting status, until objective disease progression, development of unacceptable toxicity, or voluntary discontinuation. Dose titration will be done according to the severity of adverse events.
