In this study we want to learn more about the safety of a new drug for GIST, DCC-2618 and how well it works against cancer in patients who have received imatinib as compared to Sutent (sunitinib), a routine treatment for GIST. DCC-2618 is still experimental and is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We don't know if this study will help you. Your condition may get better but it could stay the same or even get worse. We hope the information from this study will help us develop a better treatment for GIST in the future.
