A Phase 2 Study of Savolitinib in Subjects With MET Amplified Metastatic colorectal Cancer

Purpose

This phase II trial studies how well savolitinib works in treating participants with MET amplified colorectal cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Savolitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Eligibility

  • Ages: 18 and older
  • Sexes: All
  • Accepts healthy volunteers?: No
For additional eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

Procedures

Participants receive savolitinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, participants are followed up at 30 days, and then every 12 weeks thereafter.
