|Official title||A Phase 2 Study of Dovitinib in Adults With Advanced Malignant Pheochromocytoma or Paraganglioma|
|Principal investigator||Stephen Keefe, MD|
|Description||This investigator-initiated study is being conducted to evaluate whether the investigational drug, Dovitinib, can shrink or slow the growth of cancer in patients with certain types of neuroendocrine tumors (advanced malignant pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma). The primary endpoint will be response rate (Complete + Partial Response) determined by RECIST v 1.1. 25 subjects will be enrolled on this study at the University of Pennsylvania.|
