Assessment of Tumor Perfusion Changes in Response to Pazopanib in Renal Cell Carcinoma
- 18 years of age or older
- Diagnosis of unresectable and/or metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma. 10
patients will be enrolled who have had no prior anti-angiogenic therapy; 10 patients
will be enrolled who have had one prior anti-angiogenic therapy
- Prior radiation therapy to a symptomatic site of metastatic disease is allowed but
patients must have discontinued/completed radiation therapy at least 2 weeks prior to
entering the study, and have recovered from adverse events due to that treatment.
- ECOG performance status of 0, 1 or 2.
- Patients must have measureable disease by RECIST 1.1
- Archived tumor blocks must be provided for all subjects for correlative analysis
before or during treatment with pazopanib
- Patient must have normal baseline laboratory values
- Patients must not receive any other investigational agents while onstudy.
- Patients must not be taking cytochrome P450 enzyme -inducing antiepileptic drugs
(phenytoin, carbamazepine or phenobarbital), rifampin or St.Johns wort.
- Females of childbearing potential are eligible to enter and participate in this study
if they have a negative pregnancy test and agree to use medically accepted
contraception throughout the study
- Female subjects who are pregnant or brestfeeding - Patients with active prior
malignancy. Note: Subjects who have had another malignancy and have been disease-free
for 3 years, or subjects with a history of completely resected non-melanomatous skin
carcinoma or successfully treated in situ carcinoma are eligible.
- Patients with a history or clinical evidence of central nervous system (CNS)
metastases or leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, except for individuals who have
previously-treated CNS metastases, are asymptomatic, and have had no requirement for
steroids or anti-seizure medication for 6 months prior to first dose of study drug.
Screening with CNS imaging studies (computed tomography [CT] or magnetic resonance
imaging [MRI]) is required only if clinically indicated or if the subject has a
history of CNS metastases.
- Patients with clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may increase
the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding
- Patients with clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may affect
absorption of investigational product
- Patients the presence of uncontrolled infection.
- Patient with corrected QT interval (QTc) greater than 480 msecs using Bazetts formula
- Patients with a history of any one or more of the following cardiovascular conditions
within the past 6 months: Cardiac angioplasty or stenting; Myocardial infarction;
Unstable angina; Coronary artery bypass graft surgery; Symptomatic peripheral
vascular disease; Class III or IV congestive heart failure, as defined by the New
York Heart Association (NYHA) [See Section YYY Appendix Y for description
- Patient with poorly controlled hypertension [defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP)
of greater or equal to 140 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) of greater or equal
- Patients with a history of cerebrovascular accident including transient ischemic
attack (TIA),pulmonary embolism or untreated deep venous thrombosis (DVT) within the
past 6 months. Note: Subjects with recent DVT who have been treated with therapeutic
anti-coagulating agents for at least 6 weeks are eligible
- Patients who have had prior major surgery or trauma within 28 days prior to first
dose of study drug and/or presence of any non-healing wound, fracture, or ulcer
(procedures such as catheter placement not considered to be major).
- Patients who have evidence of active bleeding or bleeding diathesis.
- Patients with known endobronchial lesions and/or lesions infiltrating major pulmonary
- Patients with hemoptysis within 6 weeks of first dose of study drug.
- Patients with any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric, or other
condition that could interfere with subjects safety, provision of informed consent,
or compliance to study procedures.
- Patients who are unable or unwilling to discontinue use of prohibited medications
list in Section4.3 for at least 14 days or five half-lives of a drug (whichever is
longer) prior to the first dose of study drug and for the duration of the study.
- Treatment with any of the following anti-cancer therapies: radiation therapy, surgery
or tumor embolization within 14 days prior to the first dose of pazopanib; OR
chemotherapy,immunotherapy, biologic therapy, investigational therapy or hormonal
therapy within 14 days prior to the first dose of pazopanib. Treatment with prior
sorafenib, sunitinib, temsirolimus or everolimus is allowed but must be discontinued
at least 5 days prior to beginning pazopanib.
- Patient who have any ongoing toxicity from prior anti-cancer therapy that is greater
than Grade 1 and/or that is progressing in severity, except alopecia.
