Study Summary

This trial is studying how well cabozantinib and temozolomide work in treating patients with leiomyosarcoma or other soft tissue sarcoma.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients with leiomyosarcoma or other soft tissue sarcomas that can't be surgically removed or have spread. Participants must have a certain level of white blood cells, no more than five prior chemo treatments, controlled brain metastases, and good organ function. They should not be pregnant and must agree to use contraception.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests the combination of cabozantinib (an enzyme blocker) and temozolomide (a chemotherapy drug) on tumor growth in leiomyosarcoma or other soft tissue sarcomas. The goal is to see if this combo works better than either drug alone.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include typical reactions from cancer drugs such as fatigue, nausea, risk of infection due to low blood cell counts, liver issues, and possibly heart problems like abnormal heartbeats.
