Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Experimenal
Metronomic oral topotecan and oral pazopanib will be administered by mouth beginning on Cycle 1 Day 1. Patients will be enrolled and observed for DLT(s) for 1 cycle of treatment. Dose modification of the combination will depend on the number of patients experiencing DLT(s) at each dose level.
Drug: Oral Topotecan
Starting on Cycle 1 Day 1, each subject will receive the assigned dose of topotecan administered by mouth.
Other Name: Hycamtin capsules
Drug: Pazopanib
Starting on Cycle 1 Day 1, each subject will receive the assigned dose of pazopanib administered by mouth.
Other Names:

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 1, dose-escalation study in female patients with recurrent or persistent gynecologic tumors. The study will include a Screening Phase, a Treatment Phase and a Followup Phase. In the Screening Phase the subject's eligibility for study participation will be determined; this phase can last up to 28 days. The Treatment Phase will begin when the subject starts study treatment and will continue until the subject is removed from study treatment. The Follow-up Phase will last for 30 days after the subject ends study treatment. The study will be conducted at approximately 1 site and will include approximately 41 evaluable patients. Treatment cycle length is 28 days. Radiologic imaging will be repeated after every 2 cycles of treatment.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must provide written informed consent prior to the performance of study specific procedures, and must be willing to comply with treatment and follow-up.
  • Female patients, greater than 18 years of age with a histologically confirmed recurrent/persistent gynecologic malignancy.
  • For patients with recurrent/persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma: persistent disease = progression during primary platinum therapy; recurrent disease = disease that recurs ≤ 12 months after discontinuing primary platinum therapy; if disease recurrence occurs > 12 months after discontinuing primary platinum therapy, there must be progression either during a 2nd platinum therapy or < 6 months after discontinuing the 2nd platinum therapy.
  • For patients with other gynecologic malignancies:

    • Malignancy is metastatic or unresectable and no curative or palliative measures exist or are no longer effective.
    • Maximum of two total prior treatments (this includes neoadjuvant, adjuvant, and metastatic settings) for the recurrent or persistent gynecologic tumors including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, investigational therapy, radiation therapy, etc.)
