S1701, A Randomized Phase II Trial of Carboplatin-Paclitaxel with or without Ramucirumab in Patients with Unresectable Locally Advanced, Recurrent, or Metastatic Thymic Carcinoma
This randomized phase II trial studies how well carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without ramucirumab work in treating patients with thymic cancer that has spread to other places in the body, has come back, or cannot be removed by surgery. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ramucirumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not yet known if giving carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without ramucirumab will work better in treating patients with thymic cancer.
Primary: The primary study objective is to compare progression-free survival between patients with incurable unresectable locally advanced, or recurrent, or metastatic thymic carcinoma randomized to carboplatin-paclitaxel with or without ramucirumab
