Lurbinectedin + Doxorubicin vs. Doxorubicin alone as first-line treatment in metastatic leiomyosarcomas
|Lurbinectedin & Doxorubicin
|IIb / III
For further information please also consult ClinicalTrials.gov.
This IIb/III study evaluates whether the combination of lurbinectedin plus doxorubicin given as first line treatment for metastatic leiomyosarcoma (LMS) prolongs the progression-free survival (PFS) compared to doxorubicin alone
WHO is the trial for?
Excluded are grade 1 LMS
WHAT is the key question that this trial is attempting to answer?
|This trial assesses if the combination of lurbinectedin plus doxorubicin given as first line treatment for metastatic leiomyosarcoma can prolong the progression-free survival (PFS) compared to doxorubicin alone.
WHY patients might want to participate?
|By participating in this study, individuals have the opportunity to contribute to advancing our understanding of more effective treatment options for metastatic leiomyosarcoma, potentially leading to improved outcomes and a positive impact on patient care and progression-free survival.
WHEN will the trial be open?
|This study is open for recruitment.

STUDY DESIGN: What does the study look like?
|This study is comparing the efficacy of the combination of lurbinectedin + doxorubicin versus doxorubicin alone in metastatic leiomyosarcoma patients. There are two parts of the study: Phase IIb and phase III. Phase IIb needs to be completed before phase III can start.
In Phase IIb, the trial has three study arms: all participating patients will be randomly divided (by a computer) in three groups. Group 1 and 2 receive the combination of lurbinectedin + doxorubicin in different doses, group 3 receives doxorubicin alone in the standard dosage.
Phase IIb will determine the optimal dosage for the combination of lurbinectedin + doxorubicin.
In Phase III, there will only be 2 study arms: Group 1 with the optimal dosage of lurbinectedin + doxorubicin, as determined in phase IIb. Group 2 receives doxorubicin alone.
Participants will receive doxorubicin intravenously every three weeks on day 1 of each treatment cycle (treatment cycle = three weeks), the combination is intravenously every three weeks (q3wk) on day 1 of each treatment cycle (treatment cycle = three weeks).
