To determine the response rate (RR) of metastatic or locally advanced pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma to axitinib administered daily.
- Determine the progression-free survival.
- In an exploratory manner examine the extent of activation of the VEGFR pathway in pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma using a semi-quantitative immunohistochemistry assay and examine the relationship with response to therapy.
- Perform pharmacogenomics analyses of drug metabolism and transport proteins through germline DNA examination.

|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Axitinib (AG-013736) With Evaluation of the VEGF-pathway in Metastatic, Recurrent or Primary Unresectable Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma|
|Actual Study Start Date :||January 22, 2019|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2021|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||January 2024|
Experimental: Axitinib (AG-013736)
Subjects with Recurrent or Primary Unresectable Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma will receive 16 weeks of therapy (Axitinib), and be seen in clinic every 4 weeks to monitor therapy.
Axitinib (AG-013736) is an oral, potent and selective inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors 1, 2, and 3.
Starting dose level 1: 5 mg every morning; 5 mg every evening. Dose level 2: 7 mg every morning; 7 mg every evening. Dose level 3: 10 mg every morning; 10 mg every evening. Dose level -1: 3 mg every morning; 3 every evening. Dose level -2: 2 mg every morning; 2 mg every evening.
Axitinib is supplied as 1 and 5-mg tablets and is administered orally twice a day with or without food, each morning and evening (i.e., every 12 hours). Axitinib will be given as self-administered.
Other Name: AG-013736
- Response Rate (RR) [ Time Frame: Up to 16 weeks ]This study is designed to determine the percentage of patients whose cancer shrinks or disappears after treatment.
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Duration of time from start of treatment to time of progression or death, whichever occurs first; an average of up to 12 months ]The length of time during and after the treatment of a disease, such as cancer, that a patient lives with the disease but it does not get worse.
