Update on the Sunitinib or Cediranib for Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

If you consider to join the following clinical trial: Sunitinib or Cediranib for Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma ; study NCT01391962

Please note that patients can join only if:

·        Patients show evidence of disease progression

·        Patients must not have received prior treatment with any VEGF receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor (e.g., cediranib, sunitinib, pazopanib, sorafenib); however, pre-treatment with bevacizumab is allowed.

Please also note that

·        Patients in this trial will be randomized to receive cediranib (30 mg) or sunitinib malate (37.5 mg) orally, once a day in 28-day cycles.

·        If and when disease progression is seen, then patients will cross over to the other treatment arm after a 2-week wash-out period.
