The incidence of new diagnosed patients with NET of the digestive tract including carcinoid and pancreatic islet cells tumors ranges from 2 to 10 per 100,000 in the western Countries (Kulke M, Mayer R. N Engl J Med 340:858-868, 1999). Despite of the low incidence, the prevalence of these tumors is high because of their relatively long survival estimated in 35% at 5 years for those patients with well or moderate differentiated tumors (Yao JC, et al. J Clin Oncol. 2008;26:3063-3072). In fact, digestive NETs are the second most prevalent tumors derived from the digestive tract after colorectal carcinoma.
NETs are characterized by abundant vasculature, moreover VEGFR and VEGFR are overexpressed in 60-84% of the carcinoids and pancreatic islet cells NETs (Zhang et al. Cancer 2007;109:1478-1486). Other pro-angiogenic factors like the platelet derived growth factor (PDGFR) have been also involved in NET progression and development (Chaudhry A, et al.Cancer Res 1992;52:1006-12).
Pazopanib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor of the VEGFR, PDGFR and KIT with a dual activity both as an antiangiogenic and also and anti-tumoral agent (Kumar et al. Mol Cancer Ther2007;6:2012-2021, Hurwitz et al. Clin Cancer Res 2009;15:4220-4227). Pazopanib seems to have a better toxicity profile versus the other antiangiogenic tyrosine kinase inhibitors and has already shown activity in several tumor types like renal cell carcinoma (Sternberg et al. J Clin Oncol 2009;27:abst. 5021), soft tissue sarcomas (Sleijfer et al. J Clin Oncol 2009;27:3126-32), hepatocellular carcinoma (Yau et al. J Clin Oncol 2009;27:abst. 3561), colorectal cancer (Brady et al. J Clin Oncol 2009;27:abst.4133), and thyroid cancers (Bible et al. J Clin Oncol 2009;27:abst. 3521).
The Spanish Group for Research in Neuroendocrine Tumors (GETNE) group is an active Member inside of the GENET group and has a large tradition in clinical trials in NETs. The investigators hypothesize that pazopanib may have at least as good activity and better safety profile than other VEGFR inhibitors in progressive advanced or metastatic NET tumors derived from the digestive tract.

Single arm of pazopanib 800 mg (2x400mg) given once daily as a single agent.
- Clinical Benefit Rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Clinical benefit rate (CBR), which was defined as the percentage of patients achieving complete response, partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) after pazopanib was started. Tumor responses were assessed according to RECIST criteria v1.0.
- Number of Patients Who Had an Event (Disease Progression or Death) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Patients who had an event (disease progresion or death) during the study follow-up with a median PFS OF 9.5 MONTHS (95% ci 4.8-14.1).
- Radiological Objective Complete Response Rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Defined as the number of patients with complete response after treatment
- Duration of Response (DoR) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Defined, for the subset of patients with a confirmed CR o PR, as the time from first documented evidence of CR or PR until first documented disease progression or death due to any cause. The DR data will be censored the day after the last evaluation in those patients who did not present an objective tumoral progression and did not died during their participation in the trial. The DR will be assessed only in the subset of patients presenting objective response.
- Safety Assessment Criteria [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Security and tolerance to the study medication will be determined evaluating the type, incidence, severity, timing, seriousness and connections with the treatment of the reported adverse events, physical examinations and laboratory tests. Toxicity will be classified according to NCI-CTCAE v 4.0.
- Predictive Value of Baseline CTC (Count of 0) for Response to Treatma [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Predictive value of the differente biomarkers included in the study was evaluated using multivariate analysis.
