  Purpose

This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well pazopanib hydrochloride works in treating patients with stage IV or recurrent nasopharyngeal cancer. Pazopanib hydrochloride 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.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical benefit rate [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks for 6 months, then every 2-3 months thereafter, assessed for up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical benefit rate as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) (complete response [CR}, partial response [PR], or stable disease [SD]). The sample proportion and associated 95% confidence interval will be reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rate (CR and PR) [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks and then every 6 weeks thereafter, assessed for up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response will be evaluated in this study using the new international criteria proposed by RECIST. The sample proportion and associated 95% confidence interval will be reported. All of the patients who met the eligibility criteria (with the possible exception of those who received no study medication) should be included in the main analysis of the response rate.

  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Duration of time from the start of treatment to the time of progression, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression will be evaluated in this study using the new international criteria proposed by RECIST Committee. The sample proportion and associated 95% confidence interval will be reported.

  • Toxicity profile [ Time Frame: From the time of first treatment with pazopanib hydrochloride to up to 12 months after completion of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The sample proportion and associated 95% confidence interval will be reported.

  • Best overall response [ Time Frame: From the start of the treatment until disease progression/recurrence, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The patient's best response assignment will depend on the achievement of both measurement and confirmation criteria. The sample proportion and associated 95% confidence interval will be reported.

  • Median progression-free survival time [ Time Frame: From the start of treatment to the time of progression, assessed up to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Kaplan-Meier survival curves will be obtained and used to estimate the median progression-free survival time.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the efficacy of pazopanib hydrochloride in patients with stage IV or recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

II. Determine the progression-free survival of patients treated with this drug. III. Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients. IV. Determine the effect of this drug on angiogenesis inhibition using dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan.

V. Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of this drug in these patients. VI. Correlate the effect of this drug on angiogenesis inhibition with the clinical benefit rate and pharmacokinetics.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive pazopanib hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically for up to 12 months.
