Brief Summary:
This is an open label, single arm, single center, phase 2 study with the use of the antiangiogenic multikinase inhibitor pazopanib in a population of patients with germ cell tumors who are not cured following first or subsequent chemotherapy lines for metastatic disease, followed by eventual surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Germ Cell Tumors Measurable Disease Relapse or Progression After 2 or 3 Chemotherapy Regimens. Relapse or Progression After High-dose Chemotherapy. Drug: Pazopanib Phase 2

Drug Information available for: Pazopanib

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pazopanib
Patients will receive pazopanib at the dose of 800 mg/day orally until disease progression or evidence of unacceptable toxicity/side effects. The study will be performed according to Simon's two-stage optimal design.
Drug: Pazopanib
Other Name: Votrient

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 3-months ]
    To evaluate the proportion of patients who are progression-free after 3 months of pazopanib.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of pazopanib according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.03 [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  2. Response Rate [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    A response rate will be considered as the sum of complete (CR) and partial responses (PR) according to the response evaluation criteria in solid tumors (RECIST), version 1.1

  3. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    OS time will be calculated as the interval from treatment start date to the date of death for any cause, with censoring at the date of last contact for patients alive. The Kaplan-Meier method will be used to estimate the OS curve.
