Brief Summary:
Given the low Responses Rates and short survival times achieved with conventional cytotoxic agents in resistant ovarian cancer patients, new treatment options are needed in this patient population.Antiangiogenic therapy has an important role in this group of patients and Pazopanib in particular. We are going to study if Pazopanib is able to control disease-related symptoms minimizing the side effects of treatment. This aspect is very important in the treatment of resistant ovarian cancer patient since our treatment is palliative without any impact in overall survival. So our goal is to study the Clinical Benefit Rate (objective responses plus stable disease rates) achieved with Pazopanib and its toxicity profile in this subgroup of patients

Drug Information available for: Pazopanib

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental single arm
Single arm of pazopanib 800 mg (2x400mg) given as a single agent.
Drug: Pazopanib
800 mg (2x400mg) pazopanib per day should be taken orally without food at least one hour before or two hours after a meal until disease progression, the development of unacceptable toxicity, noncompliance, withdrawal of consent by the patient, or investigator decision.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary efficacy endpoint for this study is Clinical Benefit Rate [ Time Frame: average 30 months ]
    Clinical Benefit Rate defined as the percentage of patients with Complete Response plus Partial Response plus Stable Disease ≥ 8 weeks by RECIST v1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: average 30 months ]
    Progression Free Survival (PFS) is defined as the time from the day of starting treatment to the first evidence of progression as defined by RECIST guidelines (v1.1) or death from any cause. If the patient does not have a documented date of progression or death, then PFS will be censored at the date of last adequate assessment.

  2. Biological Response by CA-125 (GCIG Criteria) [ Time Frame: average 30 months ]
    CA-125 Testing: at pretreatment visit and during the treatment period and then every 3 months after discontinuation of treatment due to any reason (toxicity or patient will) until disease progression.

  3. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Average 3 years ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the time from first day of therapy to the date of death from any cause. For a patient who is alive at the time of the statistical analysis, the patient will be considered censored at the last date of known contact.

  4. Biological progression-free interval (PFIBIO) [ Time Frame: average 30 months ]
    CA-125 Testing: at pretreatment visit and during the treatment period and then every 3 months after discontinuation of treatment due to any reason (toxicity or patient will) until disease progression. PFIBIO will be assessed according to the GCIG criteria

  5. Quality of Life and symptom control [ Time Frame: average 5 years ]
    Quality of Life and symptom control will be assessed using EORTC QLQ-C30, QLQOV28, FACT/NCCN Ovarian Symptom Index (FOSI)

  6. The safety and tolerability of study drug [ Time Frame: Average 5 years ]
    The safety and tolerability of study drugs are determined type, incidence, severity, timing, seriousness, and relatedness; of reported AEs, physical examinations, and laboratory tests. Toxicity will be graded and tabulated by the NCI-CTCAE v 3.0.

  7. Descriptive pharmacodynamic profile [ Time Frame: 30 months ]
    • the association between tumor PDGFRα expression (assessed by immunohistochemistry) and clinical outcomes (PFS, ORR, etc)
    • the relationship between serum VEGF/PDGF levels and clinical outcomes.

Treatment may have included intraperitoneal therapy, consolidation or extended therapy administered after surgical or nonsurgical assessment.
  6. The patient must have a platinum-free interval of ≤ 6 months after the final dose of primary or subsequent platinum-based therapy.

    Patients must have platinum-resistant disease,(defined as progression within <6 months from completion of a minimum of 4 platinum therapy cycles. The date should be calculated from the last administered dose of platinum therapy.

  7. The patient has at least one unidimensionally measurable target lesion (≥ 20 mm or ≥ 10 mm by spiral computed tomography [CT] or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]), as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) guidelines V 1.1.

    Once a patient has had an elevated blood pressure reading (> 140/80mmHg) this should be confirmed with another measurement, done locally if possible, either by the patients local doctor, or by home monitoring if available. Patients should continue to have their blood pressure monitored, at least weekly, until it becomes controlled (i.e. ≤ 140/80mmHg on 2 separate occasions, at least one week apart). Anti-hypertension medication changes, such as initiation of therapy, dose increases of existing therapies, or addition of other anti-hypertensive agents, should be done if the blood pressure remains high at 2 consecutive readings, at least 24 hours apart. Please, refer to guidance regarding the management of hypertension for the patient's local doctor for further information.
