A Multi-Center, Open-Label Study of Surufatinib (HMPL-012) in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors


About the study

Primary Objective Dose Escalation: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of surufatinib in patients with advanced solid tumors and to determine the maximum tolerable dose (MTD) or recommended phase II dose (RP2D). Primary Objective Dose Expansion: To evaluate the anticancer activity of surufatinib in patients with advanced Biliary Tract Cancer (BTC), patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs), patients with locally advanced, unresectable, metastatic extra-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (EP-NETs), and patients with soft tissue sarcomas (STS) treated at a dose of 300 mg QD. Secondary Objective: To evaluate the pharmacokinetic profile of multiple dose surufatinib in patients with advanced solid tumors and to evaluate the anti cancer activity of surufatinib in patients with advanced solid tumors.

Who can take part

You may be eligible to participate in the study if you meet the following criteria:


Key Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Fully understand the study and voluntarily sign the informed consent form;
  2. At least 18 years old;
  3. Histologically or cytologically documented, locally advanced or metastatic solid malignancy of any type during the dose escalation phase, that has progressed on available standard systemic therapy, and for whom no effective therapy or standard of care exists; and locally advanced or metastatic BTC that has progressed on standard first-line chemotherapy; locally advanced or metastatic pNET that has progressed on everolimus, sunitinib or both; locally advanced or metastatic EP-NET that has progressed on everolimus; advanced STS that has progressed on at least one line of standard therapy or refused standard frontline cytotoxic chemotherapy during the expansion phase;
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1


Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Hypertension that is not controlled by antihypertension medication, defined as: systolic blood pressure ≥ 140 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥ 90 mmHg;
  2. History or presence of digestive tract diseases, including active gastric/duodenal ulcer or ulcerative colitis, or active hemorrhage of an unresected gastrointestinal tumor, or an evaluation by investigators of having any other condition that could possibly result in gastrointestinal tract hemorrhage or perforation;
  3. History or presence of serious hemorrhage , hemoptysis or hematemesis within 3 months or a thromboembolic event (including Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), stroke and/or transient ischemic attack) within 6 months;
  4. Patients with squamous Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) should be excluded;
  5. Clinically significant cardiovascular disease, including but not limited to, acute myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment, severe/unstable angina pectoris or coronary artery bypass grafting, New York Heart Association Class III/IV congestive heart failure, ventricular arrhythmias requiring treatment or left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 50%;
  6. Systemic anti-neoplastic therapies within 4 weeks prior to the initiation of investigational treatment, including chemotherapy, radical radiotherapy, hormonotherapy, biotherapy and immunotherapy;
  7. Palliative radiotherapy for bone metastasis/lesion within 2 weeks;
  8. Known Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection;
  9. Known clinically significant history of liver disease, including viral or other hepatitis, current alcohol abuse, or cirrhosis;
  10. Women who are pregnant or lactating;
  11. Brain metastases and/or spinal cord compression untreated with surgery and/or radiotherapy, and without clinical imaging evidence of stable disease for 14 days or longer; Subjects requiring steroids within 4 weeks prior to start of study treatment will be excluded;
  12. Inability to take medication orally, dysphagia or an active gastric ulcer resulting from previous surgery or a severe gastrointestinal disease, or any other condition that investigators believe may affect absorption of the investigational product;
  13. Received investigational treatment in another clinical study within 4 weeks prior to the initiation of investigational treatment;
  14. Other disease, metabolic disorder, physical examination anomaly, abnormal laboratory result, or any other condition that investigators suspect may prohibit use of the investigational product, affect interpretation of study results, or put the patient at high risk.
