A Phase 2 Study of XL184 (Cabozantinib) in Recurrent or Metastatic Endometrial Cancer
This is a phase 2 study to determine the efficacy of a new investigational drug called XL184 (also called cabozantinib) in treating patients with recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer. The surface of each cell contains proteins (called receptors) that help to send and receive signals from the body in order for the cell to function such as cell growth, survival, and death. Sometimes, the receptors become overactive and will continue sending signals for cells, especially cancer cells, to uncontrollably grow and divide. The new investigational drug XL184 blocks a group of receptors called receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) that are thought to be important in the growth and spread of tumour cells. It is believed that by blocking these receptors from receiving signals for the tumour cells to grow, the tumour may stop growing or shrink. The purpose of the study is to determine the usefulness of the study drug.
