Three Versus Five Years of Adjuvant Imatinib as Treatment of Patients With Operable GIST With a High Risk for Recurrence: A Randomised Phase III Study
This study is recruiting people who have verified gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) with a high risk of recurrence, despite removal of all macroscopic GIST tissue during surgery and having received 3 years of adjuvant imatinib. Study participants will be randomly allocated to either Arm A or Arm B. In Arm A (Experimental), participants will continue receiving imatinib (400mg/day for 24 months). In Arm B, participants will stop receiving imatinib. All participants will be followed up using blood tests and scans of the abdomen.
