A Study to Test the Effect of the Drug Larotrectinib in Adults and Children With NTRK-fusion Positive Solid Tumors.
|BAY2757556 (Larotrectinib, Vitrakvi)
For further information please also consult ClinicalTrials.gov.
This is a Phase II study to test how well different types of cancer respond to the drug called larotrectinib. The cancer must have a change in a particular gene (NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3). Larotrectinib is a drug that blocks the actions of these NTRK genes in cancer cells and can therefore be used to treat cancer.
WHO is the trial for?
WHAT is the key question that this trial is attempting to answer?
|The primary objective of this study is to investigate the efficacy of larotrectinib for the treatment
of advanced solid tumors harboring a fusion of neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK)
of types 1-3 in children and adults.Secondary objectives comprise the efficacy and safety of larotrectinib in different NTRK-tumor types.
WHY patients might want to participate?
|This study evaluates the effectiveness of Larotrectinib, a drug designed to target specific cancer-related gene
mutations (NTRK1, NTRK2, or NTRK3). This clinical trial offers a tailored approach to treat cancer, potentially
providing patients with a more targeted and promising treatment option. Participating in the study could offer
hope for improved outcomes of other patients and maybe for themselves while contributing to the advancement
of cancer research.
WHEN will the trial be open?
|This study is open for recruitment.
WHERE is the trial available?
|The trial is being conducted in: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Czechia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece,
Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Republic of, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States.

STUDY DESIGN: What does the study look like?
|This research study is done to test how well different types of cancer respond to the drug called larotrectinib.
The cancer must have a change in a particular gene (NTRK1, NTRK2 or NTRK3). Larotrectinib is a drug that blocks
the actions of these NTRK genes in cancer cells and can therefore be used to treat cancer.Larotrectinib will be administered orally as capsule or liquid solution at a dose of 100 mg twice daily
in continuing 28-days cycles.
