Pharmacodynamic Study Using FLT-PET/CT in Patients With Prostate and Other Solid Malignancies Treated With an Interrupted High-dose Axitinib Schedule

Inclusion Criteria:

(excluding lymphoma) that is metastatic or unresectable and for which no standard
therapy exists.

- Patients must have measurable disease

- Must be >/= 18 years of age

- All patients need to be willing to undergo planned pharmacodynamic assessments,
including serial PET imaging, plasma markers, and pharmacokinetic sampling.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients who have had chemotherapy, radiotherapy, experimental therapy or major
surgery within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) prior to entering
the study or those who have not recovered (to grade -Patients may not be receiving
any other investigational agents.

- Patients with prior anti-VEGF directed therapy may be allowed only if approved by the
PI and greater than 8 weeks since last exposure

- History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic
composition to axitinib

- Patients with poorly controlled hypertension

- Patients who require use of therapeutic doses of coumarin-derivative anticoagulants

- Patients with any condition that impairs their ability to swallow and retain axitinib
tablets are excluded.

- Patients with any of the following conditions are excluded: Serious or nonhealing
wound, ulcer, or bone fracture; History of abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal
