Brief Summary:

Primary Objective:

Efficacy: To assess the progression-free survival rate at 10 months in patients on maintenance therapy with capecitabine plus aflibercept.

Secondary Objectives:

To evaluate:

  • Efficacy: Progression Free Survival (PFS)
  • Efficacy: Overall Survival (OS)
  • Efficacy: Objective Response Rate (ORR) as per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST version 1.1) criteria
  • Health related Quality of Life (HRQL): EORTC QLQ-C30 scores and EQ5D-3L
  • Safety

Exploratory Objective:

To collect blood and tumor samples to perform investigations for potential biomarker testing.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colorectal Cancer Metastatic Drug: Capecitabine Drug: Aflibercept AVE0005 Drug: Oxaliplatin SR96669 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Total study duration for a participant can be up to 28 months.

This trial is being conducted in countries where the INN designation for the study molecule is "aflibercept" and this term is therefore used throughout the synopsis. In the US, the US proper name is "ziv-aflibercept".

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  • Age ≥18 years of both sexes
  • Histologically confirmed mCRC
  • Unresectable metastatic colorectal cancer. (Patient with resectable metastases (liver or lung) is not eligible.)
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤2
  • A life expectancy of >3 months
  • At least one measurable lesion according to RECIST (version 1.1)
  • No prior chemotherapy for advanced disease. Patients with prior (neo)adjuvant chemotherapy completed more than 6 months prior metastatic relapse are eligible (adjuvant does not include the chemotherapy after resection of distant metastases).
  • Adequate hematological profile (absolute neutrophil count >1.5 x 109/L, platelet count >100 x 109/L, hemoglobin >9 g/dL)
  • Adequate liver function: AST, ALT <3.0 x ULN (or <5 xULN in the case of liver function abnormalities due to underlying liver metastases); Alkaline Phosphatase <3 x ULN (or <5 x ULN if due to underlying liver metastases); Total bilirubin <1.5 x ULN
  • Serum creatinine < 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN). If creatinine 1.0-1.5 x ULN, creatinine clearance will be calculated according to the CKD-EPI formula and creatinine clearance < 60 mL/min will exclude the patient
  • Proteinuria <2+ functions
  • Signed patient informed consent before beginning specific protocol procedures
  • Ability to comply with protocol requirements

Exclusion criteria:

  • Less than 4 weeks from prior radiotherapy to the time of inclusion (less than 2 weeks in case of palliative RT on single bone lesion only)

  • Treatment with any other investigational product within 28 days prior to inclusion
  • Other prior neoplasm. Adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer or in situ cervical cancer or any other cancer from which the patient has been disease-free for > 5 years are allowed
  • History of brain metastases (unless adequately controlled, i.e. previously irradiated, inactive brain metastases not requiring active treatment like steroids or antiepileptics), active seizure disorder, uncontrolled spinal cord compression, or carcinomatous meningitis, or new evidence of brain or leptomeningeal disease
  • Any of the following within 6 months prior to inclusion: myocardial infarction, severe/unstable angina pectoris, coronary/peripheral artery bypass graft, NYHA class III or IV congestive heart failure, stroke or transient ischemic attack
