Clinical Trial NU FC11S02
- Phase II Study Evaluating the Role of Pazopanib in Angiosarcoma (OER-SAR-043)
- Principal Investigator
- Mark Agulnik
- Status: Accepting New Patients
- Study Type: Therapeutic, Treatment
- Protocol No:.NU FC11S02
- The goal of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, pazopanib has on patients and their angiosarcoma.
- The standard treatment for angiosarcoma is surgery to remove the cancer; however, these tumors have a high chance of returning, leading to the need for systemic therapy. Few effective systemic therapy options exist for angiosarcoma. Pazopanib is a drug that has shown encouraging activity in previous studies of other types of sarcomas. In laboratory testing pazopanib has shown anti-angiogenic effects (it stops or slows the growth of blood vessels to the cancer). Other drugs that have anti-angiogenic effects have been effective in fighting angiosarcoma, so researchers hope that pazopanib will have therapeutic activity in this disease.
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
- Participants must have angiosarcoma that cannot be removed with surgery.
- Participants must have had at least one prior treatment regimen for their angiosarcoma.
- Participants must be 18 or older.
- Description of Treatment
- Participants in this study will take pazopanib pills by mouth every day until the pills stop working or until the participant has too many side effects.
