Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of SU5416 in patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma (KS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sarcoma, Kaposi HIV Infections Drug: SU5416 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients are given SU5416 via twice-weekly intravenous infusions in 4-week treatment cycles. Any patient who has not experienced unacceptable toxicity and who is deemed to be responding to the study drug (no evidence of disease progression) is permitted to continue receiving SU5416 in 4-week treatment cycles (up to a maximum of 1 year of therapy) until that patient experiences either unacceptable toxicity or tumor progression, as defined in the protocol.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 30 participants
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Open-Label, Phase II Study of SU5416 in Patients With Therapy-Refractory Cutaneous AIDS-Related Kaposi's Sarcoma
