All patients who participate in this study will receive pazopanib. Pazopanib is an oral drug (pill) that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of advanced kidney cancer. In this study, the investigators plan to learn more about the way this drug works by using special scans (MRIs and Ultrasounds) to help evaluate how this drug is working on this disease. Approximately 20 people with advanced kidney cancer will be enrolled on this study.
Condition or disease
Carcinoma, Renal Cell
Drug: PazopanibDevice: DCE-MRI and Quantitative Doppler Ultrasound
Early Phase 1
Overall objectives PRIMARY: - Assessment of early changes in DCE-MRI and ultrasound measures of tumor perfusion in the setting of pazopanib therapy for patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma SECONDARY: - Correlation of baseline DCE-MRI and ultrasound parameters and clinical outcome - Correlation of early (48 +/- 24 hr after treatment) changes in DCE-MRI and ultrasound parameters and clinical outcome - Correlation of baseline (and changes) in DCE-MRI and ultrasound parameters with VHL status in tumors and histocytometric analysis of endothelial cell activation in archival nephrectomy specimens - Provide an insight in the respective predictive values of DCE-MRI and US for pazopanib treatment

Prior radiation therapy to a symptomatic site of metastatic disease is allowed but patients must have discontinued/completed radiation therapy at least 2 weeks prior to entering the study, and have recovered from adverse events due to that treatment.
ECOG performance status of 0, 1 or 2.
Patients must have measureable disease by RECIST 1.1
Archived tumor blocks must be provided for all subjects for correlative analysis before or during treatment with pazopanib
Patient must have normal baseline laboratory values
Patients must not receive any other investigational agents while onstudy.

Patients with a history of cerebrovascular accident including transient ischemic attack (TIA),pulmonary embolism or untreated deep venous thrombosis (DVT) within the past 6 months. Note: Subjects with recent DVT who have been treated with therapeutic anti-coagulating agents for at least 6 weeks are eligible
Patients who have had prior major surgery or trauma within 28 days prior to first dose of study drug and/or presence of any non-healing wound, fracture, or ulcer (procedures such as catheter placement not considered to be major).
Patients who have evidence of active bleeding or bleeding diathesis.
Patients with known endobronchial lesions and/or lesions infiltrating major pulmonary vessels
Patients with hemoptysis within 6 weeks of first dose of study drug.
Patients with any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric, or other condition that could interfere with subjects safety, provision of informed consent, or compliance to study procedures.
Patients who are unable or unwilling to discontinue use of prohibited medications list in Section4.3 for at least 14 days or five half-lives of a drug (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug and for the duration of the study.
Treatment with any of the following anti-cancer therapies: radiation therapy, surgery or tumor embolization within 14 days prior to the first dose of pazopanib; OR chemotherapy,immunotherapy, biologic therapy, investigational therapy or hormonal therapy within 14 days prior to the first dose of pazopanib. Treatment with prior sorafenib, sunitinib, temsirolimus or everolimus is allowed but must be discontinued at least 5 days prior to beginning pazopanib.
