A Phase IB, Open-Label, Safety Study of the Combination of Sunitinib and Radiation for the Treatment of Patients With Cancer


The combination of ionizing radiation and antiangiogenic agents seems to be a
counterintuitive approach to tumor cure because oxygen is a potent radiosensitizer and a
reduction in oxygen concentration would be expected following a reduction in tumor
vasculature after antiangiogenic treatment.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Minimum 2 week course of radiation therapy

- Solid tumors of the central nervous system, head and neck, thorax, and pelvis

Exclusion Criteria:

- Major surgery or radiation therapy within 4 weeks starting study treatment

- Grade 3 hemorrhage within 4 weeks

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

To evaluate the safety and toxicity profile of sunitinib when used with concurrent radiation therapy

Outcome Description:

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of the combination of the antiangiogenic, sunitinib, when combined with external beam radiotherapy.

Outcome Time Frame:

2 years

Safety Issue:

Yes
