Brief Summary:
This is a single-center, open-label, single arm,exploratory clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of Apatinib in patients with local progressive/metastatic refractory thyroid cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Refractory Cancer Drug: Apatinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a single-center, open-label, single arm,exploratory clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of Apatinib in patients with local progressive/metastatic refractory thyroid cancer.

The primary endpoint is objective response rate(ORR),the secondary endpoints include progression-free-survival(PFS);disease control rate(DCR);serum Tg、TgAb、calcitonin;safety.

If any case happens as following,including withdrawing informed consent form(ICF)、unbearable toxicity or adverse reactions、other conditions which investigators think the patients are unsuitable to go on trail,the patient will not go on trial any longer,or every subject will obtain study treatment until tumor progress with CT/MRI proof.The indicators of efficacy and safety will be always observed during the trail process.

Drug Information available for: Thyroid

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: apatinib with 500mg qd po
Patients administrate apatinib with the dose of 500mg once per day,half an hour after a meal.
Drug: Apatinib
Apatinib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. objective response rate [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of subjects having achieved confirmed Complete Response+Partial Response as best overall response according to Response Evaluation Criteria Solid Tumors(RECIST 1.1).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. progression-free-survival(PFS) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 12 months.

  2. disease control rate(DCR) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Investigators will assess treatment response according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1(RECIST1.1).

  3. serum Tg、TgAb、calcitonin [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Evaluating the change of serum level of Tg,TgAb or calcitonin,assessed up to 12 months.

  4. Adverse Events(AEs) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0.
