This phase II trial studies how well sunitinib malate works in treating patients with endometrial cancer that has come back after a period of improvement (recurrent) or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Sunitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

abstinence) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation; all women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to receiving sunitinib; should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately - Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document Exclusion Criteria: - Patients who have had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) prior to entering the study or those who have not recovered from adverse events due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier;

Additional Information

Official title A Phase 2 Study of Sunitinib Malate in Recurrent or Metastatic Endometrial Carcinoma
Principal investigator Amit Oza
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the objective response rate of recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer to sunitinib (sunitinib malate). II. To assess the frequency of prolonged stable disease (as defined by percentage [%] of patients alive and free from progressive disease at 6 months) in patients with recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer treated with sunitinib. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess time-to- progression, median overall survival, and rate of one-year survival in patients with recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer treated with sunitinib. II. To assess the toxicity associated with sunitinib in patients with recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer. OUTLINE: Patients receive sunitinib malate orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 6 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After the completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4 weeks and then every 3 months until relapse.
