This is a Phase II trial designed to determine the efficacy and safety of perifosine plus imatinib mesylate in patients with advanced GIST who develop progressive disease or recurrence while receiving imatinib mesylate.
This is a Phase II study of perifosine in combination with imatinib mesylate in patients with advanced GIST. Each cycle lasts 28 days. There will be two treatment arms. On both arms, patients will continue the dose of imatinib mesylate taken during the period of disease progression. Patients will be randomized to one either a weekly or a daily perifosine treatment regimen at the time of registration.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate and sunitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effe...
The purpose of this study is to determine if escalating the dose of imatinib to keep the drug blood level at ≥ 1100 ng/ml leads to better outcomes for patients.
RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known which dose of imatinib mesylate is more effectiv...
The purpose of this multicenter, single-arm, Simon two-stage, phase II trial is to determine the efficacy and safety of everolimus in combination with Imatinib mesylate in patients with pr...
A phase IIIb study of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors who have had progressive disease while on 400 mg imatinib. Patients will be randomly assigned to either sunitinib 37.5 ...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) represent about 80% of the mesenchymal neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract. Most GISTs contain oncogenic KIT (85%) or PDGFRA (5%) receptors. The kinase inhi...
Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was shown to be prognostic in several solid malignancies. There are limited data about predictive/prognostic value of NLR during targeted therapy of patients with ...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors involving the gastrointestinal tract. A small percentage of GISTs may cause acute gastrointestinal bleeding, which requir...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the digestive system. The primary location of GISTs is mainly the gastrointestinal system. Clinical symptoms are nonsp...
Imatinib has revolutionized the treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST); however, primary and secondary resistance to imatinib is still a major cause of treatment failure. Multiple mechani...
A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).
All tumors in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT arising from mesenchymal cells (MESODERM) except those of smooth muscle cells (LEIOMYOMA) or Schwann cells (SCHWANNOMA).
Neoplasms derived from the primitive sex cord or gonadal stromal cells of the embryonic GONADS. They are classified by their presumed histogenesis and differentiation. From the sex cord, there are SERTOLI CELL TUMOR and GRANULOSA CELL TUMOR; from the gonadal stroma, LEYDIG CELL TUMOR and THECOMA. These tumors may be identified in either the OVARY or the TESTIS.
Tumors or cancer of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, from the MOUTH to the ANAL CANAL.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
