|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized; Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment; Masking: None (Open Label); Primary Purpose: Treatment|
Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome
Drug: Sunitinib Malate
|Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations|
|The recruitment goal was to enroll five participants; however, the study was terminated after only two participants had been enrolled as a result of slow recruitment and adverse events. Date of enrollment of the first participant was December 10, 2008, and the study was terminated on December 1, 2010.|
|Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment|
|No text entered.|
|Sunitinib Malate||Participants were expected to receive 9 months of sunitinib malate therapy administered in 6 cycles. Each cycle consisted of a daily oral dose of 50 mg sunitinib malate for 4 weeks followed by a 2-week rest period). Only one participant remained in the study for the Week 36 measures.|

Limitations and Caveats
|Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data|
|Early termination of the trial resulted in a small number of participants being analyzed, and Microperimetry (MP-1) results were not accurate for either participant due to fixation issues.|
