This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well pazopanib works in treating patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. Pazopanib 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.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Malignant Mesothelioma
Localized Malignant Mesothelioma
Recurrent Malignant Mesothelioma
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Drug: pazopanib hydrochloride
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of Evaluable Participants Who Are Progression-free at 6 Months Based on the Response Evaluation Criteria for Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of patients who are progression-free at 6 months is calculated by dividing the number of evaluable participants who are progression-free at 6 months based on the Response Evaluation Criteria for Solid Tumors (RECIST) by the total number of evaluable participants.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From study enrollment to time of death from any cause or censored at last follow-up, up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free Survival Assessed by RECIST [ Time Frame: From study enrollment to the first date of disease progression or death as a result of any cause, whichever occurs first, up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the Clinical Toxicities of This Drug in This Participant Population. [ Time Frame: Participants will be evaluated every cycle during treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number of participants with a reported Grade 3, Grade 4, and Grade 5 toxicity, regardless of attribution, will be tabulated.

  • Overall Best Response of Target Lesions to Pazopanib in Patients With MPM Based on the RECIST. [ Time Frame: From study enrollment to the first date of disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions.

    Partial Response (PR): At least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions taking as reference the baseline LD.

Enrollment: 55
Study Start Date: March 2007
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
Patients receive oral pazopanib hydrochloride once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Correlative study
Drug: pazopanib hydrochloride
Given orally

Detailed Description:


I. Determine the effect of pazopanib hydrochloride on the proportion of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma who are progression-free at 6 months based on the RECIST criteria.

II. Determine the clinical toxicities of this drug in this patient population.


I. Determine the objective tumor response status in these patients as measured by the RECIST criteria or the modified RECIST criteria.

II. Determine the response rate in patients treated with this drug. III. Determine the effect of this drug on overall survival and time to progression in these patients.

IV. Assess predictive markers of activity of this drug in these patients. V. Assess serologic markers of target inhibition by this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral pazopanib hydrochloride once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Blood is collected at baseline and prior to each course of therapy and analyzed for markers of angiogenesis.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months.
