In this study, patients with relapsed or refractory ovarian cancer will receive treatment with pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil) until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs. The Phase I portion will define the dose limiting toxicity (DLT) of pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin when administered in combination. Once the maximum tolerated dose has been identified in the Phase I portion, the Phase II portion will evaluate efficacy and safety of this combination in the same patient population.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase I: To define the optimal doses of pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin when administered in combination to patients with relapsed/refractory ovarian cancer [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

  • To determine the overall survival of patients with relapsed/refractory ovarian cancer following treatment with pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin. [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the efficacy of pazopanib/liposomal doxorubicin (response rate, progression-free survival, overall survival) separately in the subsets of patients with platinum-sensitive and platinum-refractory ovarian carcinoma [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the toxicity of the combination of pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Experimental: 1
Systemic therapy with pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil). Single-agent pazopanib will be given for a 7 day run-in period, followed by a combination of pazopanib and liposomal doxorubicin administered in 28-day treatment cycles.

Inclusion Criteria:

  4. Radiographically documented progression per RECIST criteria (version 1.1) or progression of CA-125 during or subsequent to the last chemotherapy regimen.
  5. Measurable disease (RECIST criteria) or evaluable disease with elevated CA-125 level. Patients with normal CT scans and elevated CA-125 levels as the only indication of disease are not eligible. ECOG performance status of 0 or 1.
  6. Normal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) according to institutional standards.
  7. Adequate recovery from recent surgery. At least 1 week must have elapsed from the time of a minor surgery (with the exception of portacath placement); at least 4 weeks must have elapsed from the time of a major surgery.
  8. Laboratory values as follows:

    • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1500/μL
    • Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥9g/dL. Patients may not have received RBC transfusions within 7 days of screening assessment.
    • Platelets ≥100,000/L
    • AST or ALT must be <2.5 x ULN (concomitant elevations in bilirubin and AST/ALT >1.0 x ULN are not permitted).
    • Total bilirubin <1.5 x the institutional ULN (if Gilberts syndrome, direct bilirubin ≤1.5 x ULN)
    • International normalized ratio (INR) 1.2 and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) 1.2 the ULN (except for patients receiving anti-coagulation therapy)
    • Cr ≤ 1.5 x ULN. If Cr >1.5 x ULN, then calculated creatinine clearance must be ≥50 mL/min
    • Urine protein creatinine (UPC) ratio ≤1.0 at screening OR Urine dipstick for proteinuria <2+ (patients discovered to have 2+ proteinuria on dipstick urinalysis at baseline should undergo a 24 hour urine collection and must demonstrate <1g of protein in 24 hours to be eligible).
