Sutent Adjunctive Treatment of Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (IIT Sutent)
This study is comparing a drug called Sutent with standard of care treatment for people with advanced thyroid cancer. Because advanced thyroid cancer is becoming increasingly common and effective treatment options are limited, new therapies are desperately needed.
This study is designed to see if Sutent following therapy with radioactive iodine will target cancer cells and delay disease progression better than standard therapy alone. Newly diagnosed patients, who are scheduled to receive radioactive iodine as part of their standard care are possible candidates. By entering into this study, participants agree to take oral Sutent for approximately one year after completing standard therapy. During this time, study participants will be followed closely by their doctor.

- The primary objective is to assess clinical benefit rate, defined as complete response, partial response, or stable disease per RECIST criteria. [ Time Frame: 12 months after last patient completes treatment ]
- The secondary objective will be to assess the safety of Sutent in this patient population. [ Time Frame: quarterly ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2008|

Experimental: Treatment Arm - Sutent
Sutent 37.5 mg/day will be given orally.
Drug: SU011248, Sutent
Sutent 37.5 mg/day will be given orally after radioactive iodine therapy. Total time of Sutent drug administration will be 52 weeks, absent unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Sutent is supplied as 12.5mg and 25 mg tablets. Patients are to swallow the tablets whole with approximately 250 ml (8 oz.) of water, fasting each morning. Patients will be given monthly calendars (patient diaries) to document the time when the Sutent pills are taken. At monthly visits, patients will bring back this record and the drug bottles.
