Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition melanoma
Treatment pazopanib/paclitaxel
Phase phase 2
Sponsor University of Zurich
Start date August 2012
End date October 2014
Trial size 18 participants
Trial identifier NCT01666418, SZ10ON01

Summary

This is an open, monocentric, pilot study to determine the metabolic activity (glucose-uptake) in vivo during monotherapy with pazopanib in comparison to combination therapy with pazopanib plus paclitaxel and to investigate the transcriptional profile of cutaneous melanoma metastasis before and during the therapy (pazopanib vs. pazopanib plus paclitaxel) in subjects with unresectable Stage III or Stage IV melanoma who have not received prior cytotoxic chemotherapy.

Primary Objective:

Evaluation of metabolic activity in vivo

Secondary Objective:

Determination of changes in gene expression profiling Evaluation of the antitumor activity of the combination in terms of progression free survival (PFS). Changes in S100 and LDH during therapy at the same time points as FDG-PET/CT (a combined serum measurement of S100 and LDH)

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion criteria: - Age ≥ 18 years - Diagnosis of histologically or cytologically confirmed melanoma stage III or IV. - Fresh tumor tissue must be provided for all subjects for biomarker analysis before (within 14 days prior to treatment start) and during (on day 10 of the pazopanib monotherapy and the last day of the treatment with pazopanib, day 70) treatment with investigational product (asservation in RNAlater, for kryo asservation, and for cell cultures) - Assessable metastases (skin or superficial lymph nodes with a minimal diameter 1 cm) - Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1. - Adequate organ system function Exclusion criteria: - Prior malignancy. - Central nervous system (CNS) metastases - Corrected QT interval (QTc) > 480 msecs using Bazett's formula. - History of any one or more of the following cardiovascular conditions within the past 6 months: - Cardiac angioplasty or stenting; - Myocardial infarction; - Unstable angina; - Coronary artery bypass graft surgery; - Symptomatic peripheral vascular disease; - Class III or IV congestive heart failure, as defined by the New York Heart Association (NYHA). - Poorly controlled hypertension - History of cerebrovascular accident including transient ischemic attack (TIA), pulmonary embolism or untreated deep venous thrombosis (DVT) within the past 6 months. - Presence of uncontrolled infection - Clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding - Evidence of active bleeding or bleeding diathesis - Any ongoing toxicity from prior anti-cancer therapy that is >Grade 1 and/or that is progressing in severity, except alopecia. - Prior exposure to the study drug pazopanib
