Regorafenib Phase 2 Trial for Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer
Researchers are studying regorafenib, a multi kinase inhibitor, as treatment for metastatic medullary thyroid cancer.
Title: A Phase 2 Study Using Regorafenib as Second or Third Line Therapy in Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Cancer1
Principal Investigator: Jochen Lorch, MD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Description: For this open label phase 2 study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02657551), researchers are investigating the efficacy and safety of regorafenib, an orally-administered multi-kinase inhibitor, among patients with metastatic medullary thyroid cancer who received at least 1 prior therapy.
There is 1 trial arm: oral, daily predetermined regorafenib dosage for 3 weeks per cycle.
Primary outcomes are response and progression-free survival. Secondary outcomes are safety, radiographic response, and response-associated biomarkers.
