Full TitleRandomized, Double-blinded Phase III Study of Cabozantinib versus Placebo in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors after Progression on Everolimus (CIRB)
The purpose of this study is to see if the drug cabozantinib is effective for treating inoperable or metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine and carcinoid tumors that continue to grow despite everolimus treatment. Cabozantinib is already used to treat thyroid and kidney cancers. It inhibits the development of the blood vessels that tumors need to grow and spread and is taken orally (by mouth). Patients in this study will be randomly assigned to receive either cabozantinib or a placebo.
To be eligible for this study, patients must meet several criteria, including but not limited to the following:
- Patients must have an inoperable or metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine or carcinoid tumor that continues to grow despite prior treatment that included everolimus.
- At least 4 weeks must pass between the completion of previous treatments and entry into the study.
- Patients must be able to walk and do routine activities for more than half of their normal waking hours.
- This study is for patients age 18 and older.
