Details and patient eligibility


To determine if the regorafenib and nivolumab combination (RegoNivo) improves overall survival compared with current standard chemotherapy options in refractory AGOC.

Full description

The purpose of this international study is to determine if the combination of regorafenib and nivolumab is more effective than standard chemotherapy in prolonging overall survival in a broad group of participants with AGOC, who have progressed after treatment with standard anti-cancer therapy.

In the INTEGRATE study, regorafenib alone was shown to be effective in prolonging the progression-free period in people with AGOC following standard anti-cancer therapy (i.e. it delayed tumour growth), and demonstrated a potential benefit on long term survival. Recent research has shown the early results from this combination of regorafenib & nivolumab may improve outcomes for cancer patients. INTEGRATE IIb will investigate this effect further in a larger group of participants with AGOC.

The study aims to determine:

i. Whether the combination of regorafenib/nivolumab is likely to help patients with AGOC live longer; ii. The effects of this treatment on progression-free survival; iii. The numbers of participants responding to the treatment iv. The effects of this treatment on quality of life v. The side effects and tolerability of this treatment vi. Molecular differences (e.g. variations in genes or proteins) that may account for the effects of this treatment vii. Differences in the costs of care for people on this treatment.

The Investigators plan to enrol 460 participants in the study from, but not limited to; Australia, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, USA, Germany, Austria, Spain, and Italy.


450 estimated patients

Inclusion criteria

  1. Adults (18 years or over) with metastatic or locally recurrent gastro-oesophageal cancer which:

    1. has arisen in any primary gastro-oesophageal site (oesophago-gastric junction (GOJ) or stomach); and
    2. is of adenocarcinoma or undifferentiated carcinoma histology; and
    3. is evaluable according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST Version 1.1) by computed tomography (CT) scan performed within 21 days prior to randomisation. A lesion in a previously irradiated area is eligible to be considered as measurable disease as long as there is objective evidence of progression of the lesion prior to study enrolment; and
    4. has failed or been intolerant to a minimum of 2 lines of prior anti-cancer therapy for recurrent/metastatic disease which must have included at least one platinum agent and one fluoropyrimidine analogue. Note: Neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy will be considered as first line treatment where people have relapsed or progressed within 6 months of completing treatment; Radiosensitising chemotherapy given solely for this purpose concurrent with palliative radiation will not be considered as a line of treatment. Ramucirumab monotherapy, or immunotherapy with a checkpoint inhibitor, will be considered a line of treatment.
    5. HER2-positive participants must have received trastuzumab

  3. Ability to swallow oral medication.

  4. Adequate bone marrow function (Platelets ≥100x109/L; Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥1.5x109/L and Haemoglobin ≥ 9.0g/dL).

  5. Adequate renal function (Creatinine clearance >50 ml/min) based on either the Cockcroft-Gault formula (Appendix 2), 24-hour urine or Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) scan; and serum creatinine ≤1.5 x Upper Limit of Normal (ULN).

  6. Adequate liver function (Serum total bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN, and INR ≤ 1.5 x ULN, and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) ≤2.5 x ULN (≤ 5 x ULN for participants with liver metastases)).

    Participants being treated with an anti-coagulant, such as warfarin or heparin, will be allowed to participate provided that no prior evidence of an underlying abnormality in these parameters exists.

  7. Willing and able to comply with all study requirements, including treatment, timing, and/or nature of required assessments and follow-up.

  8. Study treatment both planned and able to start within 7 days after randomisation (note: subjects randomised on a Friday should commence treatment no earlier than the following Monday)

  9. Signed, written informed consent

Exclusion criteria

  1. Known allergy to the investigational product drug class or excipients in the regorafenib and/or nivolumab

  2. Poorly-controlled hypertension (systolic blood pressure >140mmHg or diastolic pressure> 90mmHg despite optimal medical management).

  3. Participants with known, uncontrolled malabsorption syndromes

  4. Any prior anti-VEGF targeted therapy using small molecule VEGF TKIs (e.g. apatinib). Prior anti-VEGF targeted monoclonal antibody therapies (e.g. bevacizumab and ramucirumab) are permitted.

  5. Any prior use of more than one immune checkpoint inhibitor

  6. Treatment with any previous drug therapy within 2 weeks prior to first dose of study treatment. This includes any investigational therapy.

  7. Use of biological response modifiers, such as granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF), within 3 weeks prior to randomisation.

  8. Concurrent treatment with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers.

  9. Palliative radiotherapy, unless more than 14 days have elapsed between completion of radiation and the date of registration, and adverse events resulting from radiation have resolved to < Grade 2 according to CTCAE V5.0
