Study Description

Brief Summary

The aim of this study was to explore the efficacy and safety of adriamycin and ifosfamide combined with sintilimab in the treatment of advanced or unresectable soft tissue sarcoma.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase
  • Drug: Sintilimab plus chemotherapy
Phase 2

Detailed Description

At present, there are a number of clinical trials of chemotherapy drugs combined with anti PD-1 antibody in the treatment of cancer, but the clinical research of chemotherapy containing adriamycin combined with anti-PD-1 antibody for advanced STS patients is almost blank. Regimen containing adriamycin is the standard chemotherapy regimen for advanced STS approved by international guidelines. As an innovative PD-1 monoclonal antibody, more phase II clinical studies are needed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sintilimab in a variety of cancers. For patients who fail or cannot tolerate first-line treatment, treatment options are still limited. In view of the above problems, this study aims to observe and explore the efficacy and safety of chemotherapy including adriamycin combined with sintilimab in the second-line treatment of patients with advanced STS, so as to provide more and better treatment options for patients with advanced STS.

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/Treatment
Experimental: Sintilimab plus chemotherapy

Adriamycin and ifosfamide combined with sintilimab in the treatment of advanced or unresectable soft tissue sarcoma

Drug: Sintilimab plus chemotherapy
AI regimen chemotherapy (ADM 50 mg / m2, D1 + IFO 2.5 g / m2, D1-3, IV drip) was used for 3 weeks; CAV / IE regimen alternate chemotherapy (regimen 1: CTX 1.2mg/m2 D1 + ADM 50mg / m2 D1 + VCR 1.4mg/m2 D1 and regimen 2: IFO 1.5g/m2 D1-5 + VP-16 100mg / m2 D1-5, IV drip). Regimen 1 and 2 were performed alternately, with a cycle of 3 weeks; sintilimab (10ml; 100mg) was administered intravenously every 3 weeks;
Other Names:
  • adriamycin and ifosfamide
  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Overall response rate, ORR [up to 24 months]

      The percentage of patients with complete remission and partial remission in patients with evaluable curative effect.

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Progression-free survival, PFS [From the beginning of observation to the end of observation(1 year) of the last enrolled patient]

      It was defined as the time from admission to objective tumor progression or death.
