The purpose of this study is to evaluate how effective SU011248 works in treating acral lentiginous and mucosal melanoma which has spread beyond the local region. SU011248 is a protein-tyrosine kinase inhibitor and acts as a c-kit inhibitor drug. It is believed to work by blocking signals on certain cancer cells which allow the malignant cells to multiply and spread due to a change in the genetic make up of the cancer cell.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the response rate of this patient population to treatment with SU011248 [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the time to progression of this patient population to treatment with SU011248 [ Time Frame: Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 52
Study Start Date: August 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2016
Primary Completion Date: July 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sunitinib Drug: Sunitinib
Oral pill taken daily for 4 weeks
Other Names:
  • Sutent
  • SU011248

Detailed Description:
  • Participants will be given a bottle of SU011248 pills and will be asked to take pills once daily for 28 days on an ongoing basis. Participants will return every 28 days for new pills.
  • During all treatment cycles, participants will have a physical exam and undergo blood tests at every visit.
  • After a month of receiving the study drug participants will undergo a repeat PET scan to see if the drug has caused any early changes to their cancer.
  • At week 8 a repeat chest, abdomen and pelvic CT will be performed.
  • Participants will be on this research study for approximately one year.
