Recruiting | Phase II

Official Title:

Randomized Phase II Study of Sorafenib With or Without Everolimus in Patients with Radioactive Iodine Refractory Hurthle Cell Thyroid Cancer

Study Purpose:

To determine if adding everolimus, a chemotherapy drug, to the standard treatment for radioactive iodine refractory Hurthle thyroid cancer will control the cancer longer than the standard treatment alone. 


  • Study agents: Everolimus, Sorafenib
  • ARM 1: Sorafenib orally twice a day.  If the cancer gets worse on this treatment, subjects can re-register and start taking Everolimus orally once a day.
  • ARM 2: Sorafenib orally twice a day and everolimus orally once a day
    Patients will stay on study therapy until their cancer gets worse.  After completion of study therapy, patients are followed for up to 5 years after study enrollment.
