Cabozantinib (XL184) for Advanced Malignancies
A Randomized Discontinuation Study of XL184 in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Advanced Solid Tumors Phase II NCT00940225

The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not Cabozantinib (XL184) demonstrates anti-tumor activity in selected tumor types under a randomized discontinuation trial (RDT) design. Subjects who have responded to study drug after 12 weeks of open-label XL184 administration will continue to take XL184. Subjects who are clearly progressing will discontinue study treatment and subjects who demonstrate stable disease will be randomized to either XL184 or placebo. For individual patients, once disease progression is observed, the blind will be broken and subjects who were randomized to placebo will be offered the option to receive open-label XL184. Subjects who progressed while taking XL184 will discontinue study treatment.

Emerging data may support enrollment in an open-label, non-randomized expansion cohort (NRE). Subjects with prostate and ovarian cancers will enroll in these expansion cohorts. Other tumor types may similarly be expanded, as supporting data emerges.

  • The subject has adequate organ function
  • The subject is capable of understanding and complying with the protocol requirements and has signed the informed consent document
  • Sexually active fertile subjects (male and female), and their partners, must agree to use medically accepted methods of contraception during the course of the study and for 3 months after the last dose of the study drug(s)
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening
Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has experienced clinically-significant hematemesis or hemoptysis of >0.5 teaspoon of red blood, or other signs indicative of pulmonary hemorrhage within 3 months before the first dose of study treatment
  • The subject has a cavitating pulmonary lesion(s) or a pulmonary lesion abutting or encasing a major blood vessel
