Experimental: Experimental
Experimental - treatment 300mg vandetanib opel label
Behavioral: Patient outreach
Patients will be contacted at week 1 and then every 2 weeks until completion of 52 weeks to detect/treat AEs sooner

Drug: Vandetanib

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Time a Patient Experienced at Least 1 AE of CTCAE Grade >=2 in First 12 Months of Receiving Vandetanib in Patients Who Participated in Patient Outreach Program. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The primary endpoint is the percentage of time a patient experienced at least one AE of CTCAE grade 2 or higher in the first 12 months of treatment with vandetanib. If the patient discontinues treatment with vandetanib prior to the 12-month time point for any reason, this endpoint will be the time a patient experienced at least one AE of CTCAE grade 2 or higher as a percentage of the time the patient was receiving vandetanib.
