Randomized:
IV or Oral:
Oral
Trial Notes:
This phase II trial looks at how effective nilotinib (AMN107) would be if given initially for GIST instead of Gleevec. The trial is only for patients with metastatic or unresectable GIST that have never had Gleevec.
Nilotinib is also in phase III trials for third-line therapy in GIST after failure of Gleevec and Sutent.
Nilotinib is a potent inhibitor of KIT as well as Bcr-abl and PDGFR.
