Brief Summary:

This is an open-label, multicenter, non-randomized, phase 1 dose escalation clinical trial to determine the MTD (Maximal Tolerated Dose) of Pazopanib in a population of frail elderly patients, selected according to the International Society of Geriatric Oncology (SIOG)classification (Group 2).

It is expected that a total number of 30 patients maximum will be enrolled in the study on 30 months : 18 months accrual - 12 months follow up.

Eligible patients will be enrolled into a standard 3+3 design with a starting dose of Pazopanib administered orally at 400 mg per day, in 28-day cycles. Then, further dose levels will be explored.

Toxicity of the schedule will be assessed during the first cycle. Patients will receive study medication until disease progression. After treatment discontinuation, patients will be followed during one year.

Drug Information available for: Pazopanib

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pazopanib
Pazopanib : 3 dose levels are defined : 400, 600 and 800 mg per day.
Drug: Pazopanib
Pazopanib will be administered orally at the starting dose of 400 mg/day in 28-days cycles ; barring limiting toxicities the dose of pazopanib will escalate in several steps (a maximum of 3 dose levels are defined : 400, 600 and 800 mg/day). The pazopanib will be administered at the same dosa until disease progression.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) incidence (according DLT definition) during the first treatment cycle with pazopanib (28 days) [ Time Frame: 7.5 years ]
    The MTD (Maximum Tolerated Dose) is defined as the highest dose level for which 6 patients were treated with a maximum of 1 patient presenting a DLT during the first cycle of treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability assessments using the descriptions and grading scales found in the CTCAE (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events) version 4.0 NCI [ Time Frame: 7.5 years ]
  2. Measure of Pazopanib plasma concentration during treatment period (objective : assessment of pharmacokinetics of Pazopanib in this population) [ Time Frame: .8 time points (cycle 1 Day 1), 3 time points (cycle 1 D15) and 1 pre dose time point each day 1 of the following cycles (over a period of 7.5 years for measures in all patients) ]
    Plasma concentrations of pazopanib will be determined using a validated LC-MS-MS method -

  3. Geriatric criteria measured by comprehensive geriatric assessment which evaluate medical, functional and psychosocial aspects of elderly patients [ Time Frame: 7.5 years ]

    The impact of treatment on the geriatric assessment will be done using :

    • G8 : screening test
    • ADL: Activities Daily Living
    • IADL: Instrumental Activities Daily Living
    • MMSE: Mini-mental State Examination
    • SPPB: Short Physical Performance Battery
    • MNA: Mini-nutritional Assessment
    • CAM: Confusion Assessment Method
    • GDS-15: Geriatric Depression Scale
    • CIRS-G: Cumulative Illness Rating Scale for Geriatrics,

  4. Rate of objective response according to RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: 7.5 years ]
    Tumor assessment will be performed at screening visit, every 2 cycles and at the end of study visit and anytime if clinically indicated
