This study is being carried out in patients with advanced solid tumours to assess which of two different types of imaging scans best measures activity of an experimental drug called Cediranib. The study compares the imaging tests: Dynamic Contrast Enhanced CT (DCE-CT) and Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI). It looks at which of these scans is the most accurate and best predicts a response to the treatment. Cediranib is thought to work by stopping blood flow to cancers, and both of these scans assess blood flow. Studying the response of cancers by measuring changes in their blood flow may provide useful information that will guide the way we manage cancers in the future.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage change in DCE-MRI and DCE-CT vascular parameters. Comparison between vascular parameters of each imaging modality and between modalities. [ Time Frame: DCE-MRI and DCE-CT scans taken at Baseline, Day 7 and Day 28. Comparison between modalities from scans taken on Days -8 and Day-1. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Baseline measurements for DCE-MRI-iAUC60(mMol/sec),Ktrans(min-1),ve,vp,kep(min-1,Enhancing Fraction% DCE-CT-Permeability Surface Product(ml/min/100g),Perfusion(ml/min/100g),Mean Transit Time(sec),Blood Volume (ml/100g),Positive Enhancement Integral(Hus). [ Time Frame: DCE-MRI and DCE-CT scans taken at Day -8, Day -1, Day 7 and Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective tumour response (RECIST )Progression free survival [ Time Frame: RECIST scans within 4 weeks prior to first dose then 8 weekly up to 24 weeks, then 12 weekly thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Baseline and on treatment time-point measurements for iAUC60 (mMol/sec) and Positive Enhancement Integral (Hus) [ Time Frame: DCE-MRI and DCE-CT scans taken at Day -8, Day -1, Day 7 and Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
