Trial size 19 participants
Trial identifier NCT01364051, 8810, CDR0000700596, MC1012, NCI-2011-01083, NCI-2012-02906, P30CA015083, U01CA069912, UM1CA186686


This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of cediranib maleate and selumetinib in treating patients with solid malignancies. Cediranib maleate and selumetinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Cediranib maleate may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

Additional Information

Official title Phase I Study of the Combination of the VEGFR Inhibitor, AZD2171, and MEK Inhibitor, AZD6244, in the Treatment of Solid Malignancies
Principal investigator Brian Costello
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the maximally tolerated dose of AZD2171 (cediranib) (cediranib maleate) in combination with AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate (selumetinib). II. To describe the toxicity profile associated with AZD2171 (cediranib) in combination with AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate. III. To describe the tumor responses and identify any activity of this AZD2171 (cediranib) in combination with AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate. IV. To explore, through correlative studies, the effect of AZD2171 (cediranib) with or without AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate on serum markers of apoptosis. V. To assess the pharmacokinetic interaction of AZD2171 (cediranib) in combination with AZD6244 hydrogen sulfate. VI. To study the association of clinical (toxicity and/or tumor response or activity) with the pharmacologic (pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic) parameters, and/or biologic (correlative laboratory study) results. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study followed by a dose-expansion cohort study. Patients receive cediranib maleate orally (PO) once daily (QD) and selumetinib PO QD or twice daily (BID) on days 1-28 (days 8-28 of course 1). Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Courses may be extended to 12 weeks after 1 year of study treatment. After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up at 3 months.
