Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A Drug: SU011248
SU011248 provided as capsules. The starting dose is 25 mg orally, daily in a continuous regimen beginning on day 2. Dose rest for 1 week is allowed. Dose escalation to 37.5 mg po OD is allowed within the constraints of acceptable toxicity parameters. Dosing will continue for 1 year or until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, whichever comes first.
Other Name: sunitinib malate, Sutent
Drug: Paclitaxel
Paclitaxel is provided as an intravenous infusion for 1 hour weekly for 3 weeks followed by a 1-week rest. The starting dose is 90 mg/m2. The weekly dose may be decreased to 65 mg/m2 in subsequent cycles based on tolerability. Dosing will continue for 1 year or until maximum benefit, disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, whichever comes first.
