Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, dose-escalation study in female patients with recurrent or persistent gynecologic tumors.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gynecologic Tumors Drug: Oral Topotecan Drug: Pazopanib Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 1, dose-escalation study in female patients with recurrent or persistent gynecologic tumors. The study will include a Screening Phase, a Treatment Phase and a Followup Phase. In the Screening Phase the subject's eligibility for study participation will be determined; this phase can last up to 28 days. The Treatment Phase will begin when the subject starts study treatment and will continue until the subject is removed from study treatment. The Follow-up Phase will last for 30 days after the subject ends study treatment. The study will be conducted at approximately 1 site. Treatment cycle length is 28 days. Radiologic imaging will be repeated after every 2 cycles of treatment.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimenal
Metronomic oral topotecan and oral pazopanib will be administered by mouth beginning on Cycle 1 Day 1. Patients will be enrolled and observed for dose limiting toxicity (DLT) for 1 cycle of treatment. Dose modification of the combination will depend on the number of patients experiencing DLT(s) at each dose level.
Drug: Oral Topotecan
Starting on Cycle 1 Day 1, each subject will receive the assigned dose of topotecan administered by mouth.
Other Name: Hycamtin capsules

Drug: Pazopanib
Starting on Cycle 1 Day 1, each subject will receive the assigned dose of pazopanib administered by mouth.
Other Names:
  • GW786034
  • Votrient

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 (28 days) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment Response [ Time Frame: After every 2 cycles of treatment beginning on Cycle 1 Day 1, up to 38 months ]
    Treatment response was evaluated using RECIST version 1.0 guidelines, where complete response (CR) is the disappearance of all target lesions; partial response (PR) is >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions; Stable Disease (SD) is neither sufficient shrinkage in sum of LD of target lesions to be PR nor increase of >=20%; Progressive Disease (PD) is the increase in existing lesions or new lesions.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must provide written informed consent prior to the performance of study specific procedures, and must be willing to comply with treatment and follow-up.
  • Female patients, greater than 18 years of age with a histologically confirmed recurrent/persistent gynecologic malignancy.
  • For patients with recurrent/persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma: persistent disease = progression during primary platinum therapy; recurrent disease = disease that recurs ≤ 12 months after discontinuing primary platinum therapy; if disease recurrence occurs > 12 months after discontinuing primary platinum therapy, there must be progression either during a 2nd platinum therapy or < 6 months after discontinuing the 2nd platinum therapy.
  • For patients with other gynecologic malignancies:

    • Malignancy is metastatic or unresectable and no curative or palliative measures exist or are no longer effective.
    • Maximum of two total prior treatments (this includes neoadjuvant, adjuvant, and metastatic settings) for the recurrent or persistent gynecologic tumors including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, investigational therapy, radiation therapy, etc.)
  • Disease may be measurable or non-measurable according to RECIST version 1.0
  • Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) performance status of 0,1,or 2
  • Must have a life expectancy of at least six months
  • Adequate bone marrow, liver, renal, and cardiac function at study entry as assessed by the following:

    • Hemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL.
