Further study details as provided by Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the optimal tolerated regimen (OTR) of pazopanib and ixabepilone when used in combination by evaluation of toxicity and tolerability [ Time Frame: At first cycle (Week 3) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To obtain preliminary toxicity and tolerability of this drug regimen. [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days post treatment ]

Enrollment: 31
Study Start Date: December 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2013
Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pazopanib and Ixabepilone

Patient receives assigned dose level:

Dose Level 1 = 400 milligrams (mg) of pazopanib and ixabepilone 25 mg/m2. Dose Level 2 = 400 milligrams (mg) of pazopanib and ixabepilone 32 mg/m2. Dose Level 3 = 600 milligrams (mg) of pazopanib and ixabepilone 32 mg/m2. Dose Level 4 = 800 milligrams (mg) of pazopanib and ixabepilone 32 mg/m2.

Drug: Pazopanib
Escalating doses 400-800 mg by mouth once daily beginning day 1 and continuing.
Other Names:
  • Pazopanib hydrochloride
  • GW786034B
Drug: Ixabepilone
Escalating doses 25-32 mg/m2 by intravenous infusion on day 1 of each 21 day cycle
Other Name: IXEMPRA(TM)

Detailed Description:
Treatment with ixabepilone will be given at an assigned dose as a 3 hour intravenous infusion on day 1 of a 21 day cycle. Treatment with pazopanib will be given at an assigned dose by mouth once a day, beginning on day 1 and continuing daily. Disease assessment will be done every 2 cycles (6 weeks) with treatment continuing until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient refusal.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of advanced non-hematologic solid tumor malignancy, including, but not limited to breast, lung, colon, pancreatic, head and neck, kidney or sarcoma that has failed or become intolerant to standard therapy and is no longer likely to respond to such therapy Effective with the August 2011 version of the protocol, enrollment is limited to squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (refer to section 1.4 for rationale). Note: Patients with a primary diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma will be eligible for enrollment into dose level 1 or 2 only, provided they met all other inclusion/exclusion criteria - the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) for pazopanib monotherapy in patients with hepatocellular cancer was found to be 600 mg daily.
  • Measureable or evaluable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST).
  • Prior systemic chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or biological therapy is allowed; however prior use of either pazopanib or ixabepilone alone or in combination is not allowed.
  • At least 14 days must have elapsed since 1) previous systemic therapy (28 days for bevacizumab) before the 1st dose of study drug, 2) last dose of radiation therapy or surgery (28 days for major surgery).
  • Patient must have recovered from the acute toxic effects of previous anti-cancer treatment prior to study enrollment.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-1.
  • Adequate organ function within 14 days of enrollment defined as:

    • Hemoglobin > or = 9 g/dL
    • Platelets > or = 100 x 10^9/L
    • Prothrombin time or international normalized ratio, and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) < or = 1.2 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
    • Total bilirubin < or = ULN
    • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) < or = 2.5 x ULN
