Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: GW786034 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth and by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of GW786034 in treating patients with advanced solid tumors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Drug: pazopanib hydrochloride Phase 1

Detailed Description:


  • Determine the safety and tolerability of GW786034 in patients with advanced solid tumors.
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the clinical response in patients treated with this drug.
  • Evaluate the effect of this drug on biomarkers of angiogenesis activity in order to estimate activity and to determine the minimum biologically active dose in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, nonrandomized, dose-escalation, multicenter study.

Patients receive oral GW786034 twice daily. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Cohorts of 2-6 patients receive escalating doses of GW786034 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.

Patients are followed at 21 days.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 30-50 patients will be accrued for this study.
