Further information: or


A phase II study evaluating the role of maintenance therapy with Cabozantinib in High Grade Uterine Sarcoma (HGUtS) after stabilization or response to chemotherapy

WHO is the trial for?

  • Adult female patients (18 years or older) with confirmed advanced high-grade uterine sarcoma (stage III or IV) or with residual disease or relapse after primary surgery
  • Patients should be stable after or have responded to first line treatment with chemotherapy (anthracyclines alone or in combination with ifosfamide)
  • Overall health status of the patient has to be good (WHO/ECOG performance status 0-2)
  • Adequate cardiac, organ and bone marrow function

WHAT is the key question that this trial is attempting to answer?

This study aims to investigate a drug called Cabozantinib which belongs to a family of drugs that have effects on tumour growth, blood supply, invasion and spread.

This trial tries to find out whether taking cabozantinib after treatment with surgery and chemotherapy is effective and safe for patients who responded or had stable disease after their chemotherapy.
