  Purpose

This phase II trial studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride works in treating patients with uterine cancer that has come back or has not responded to treatment. Pazopanib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Pazopanib hydrochloride may also stop the growth of uterine cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the activity of pazopanib in patients with persistent or recurrent carcinosarcoma of the uterus as measured by the proportion of patients who survive progression-free for at least 6 months and the proportion of patients who have objective tumor response (complete or partial).

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria of Adverse Events version 4.0 (CTCAE v4.0).

II. To determine the duration of progression-free survival and overall survival.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive pazopanib hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

  • Patients must have measurable disease

    • Measurable disease is defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) (version 1.1)
    • Measurable disease is defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded)

    • Lymph nodes must be greater than or equal to 15 mm in short axis when measured by CT or MRI
  • Patients must have at least one "target lesion" to be used to assess response on this protocol as defined by RECIST version 1.1

    • Tumors within a previously irradiated field will be designated as "non-target" lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiation therapy
  • Patients must not be eligible for a higher priority Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) protocol, if one exists

    • In general, this would refer to any active GOG phase III protocol or rare tumor protocol for the same patient population

  • Recovery from effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy

    • Patients should be free of active infection requiring antibiotics (with the exception of uncomplicated urinary tract infection [UTI])

    • Cytotoxic regimens include any agent that targets the genetic and/or mitotic apparatus of dividing cells, resulting in dose-limiting toxicity to the bone marrow and/or gastrointestinal mucosa
    • Note: patients on this non-cytotoxic study are allowed to receive one additional cytotoxic chemotherapy regimen for management of recurrent or persistent disease, as defined above; however, due to the novel nature of biologic compounds, patients are encouraged to enroll on second-line non-cytotoxic studies prior to receiving additional cytotoxic therapy
