Efficacy and Safety of Simtuzumab (SIM) With FOLFIRI as Second Line Treatment in Colorectal Adenocarcinoma

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT01479465


The primary objective of this study is to compare the additive efficacy of SIM versus placebo in combination with leucovorin (folinic acid), irinotecan, and fluorouracil (FOLFIRI) as measured by improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) in participants with metastatic KRAS mutant colorectal adenocarcinoma who have progressed following a first-line oxaliplatin- and fluoropyrimidine-containing regimen.

Official Title

A Phase 2 Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of GS-6624 Combined With FOLFIRI as Second Line Treatment for Metastatic KRAS Mutant Colorectal Adenocarcinoma That Has Progressed Following a First Line Oxaliplatin- and Fluoropyrimidine-Containing Regimen
