A Double-Blind, Randomized Phase III Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Sorafenib Compared to Placebo in Locally Advanced/Metastatic RAI-Refractory Differentiated Thyroid Cancer


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Thyroid Cancer
  • Age: Between 18 - 99 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Locally advanced or metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular and Hurthle cell)
  • Poorly differentiated and other thyroid variants (e.g. insular, tall cell, etc.) are eligible provided that the histology has no medullary differentiation nor anaplastic features
  • Progression within 14 months (RECIST [Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors] should be used as a basis for the assessment of disease progression)
  • RAI (radioactive iodine) refractory
Exclusion Criteria:
  • Histologic subtypes of thyroid cancer other than differentiated (i.e. like anaplastic and medullary carcinoma, lymphoma or sarcoma)
  • Prior anti-cancer treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors, monoclonal antibodies (licensed or investigational) that target VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) or VEGF Receptors or other targeted agents
  • Prior anti-cancer treatment for thyroid cancer with use of chemotherapy (low dose chemotherapy for radiosensitization is allowed) or Thalidomide or any of its derivatives

Recruitment Status: Open
