Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
It is the study of two doses (400mg and 800mg) of STI571 (Imatinib mesylate) to test whether any relevant dose/activity relationship is detectable in patients with unresectable or metastatic gastrointestional stromal tumors (GIST) expressing the kit receptor tyrosine kinase (CD117). Patients will receive study drug until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Summary
Brief summary
This is a randomised, open label, multicentre clinical trial of two different doses of imatinib to test whether there is any difference in disease outcome between the doses in patients with unresectable or metastatic malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST). Recruitment opened in 2001, closed in 2002 with 946 patients worldwide and 116 at Australian, NZ and Singapore sites. Long term Follow UP closed October 2016.
