The purpose of this study is to:

  1. Evaluate how the body reacts to sorafenib when taken daily in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin,
  2. Measure the blood levels of sorafenib, paclitaxel and carboplatin at specific times after taking the medication, and
  3. To determine the safety of sorafenib.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and pharmacokinetics of the three agents: sorafenib administered daily, without a break in dosing, in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel, administered every 3 weeks [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the safety profile and pharmacokinetics of oral sorafenib daily in combination with every 3-weekly carboplatin and paclitaxel. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Enrollment: 16
Study Start Date: May 2007
Study Completion Date: February 2009
