 (submitted: February 20, 2019)
  • Change in average gushing frequency [ Time Frame: Cumulative number of gushing bleeds baseline 3weeks, and weeks 22-24. ]
    Patient rated intensity of each bleed, as in 0 or 1, averaged over the 3wk periods
  • Change in average bleed frequency [ Time Frame: Baseline 3 weeks, and weeks 22-24 ]
    Annotated by electronic record, number of bleeds per day, cumulative amount over 3 week periods.
  • Absolute [gm/dl] change in average serum hemoglobin levels [ Time Frame: Baseline [screening, run-in and 0 time points] and week 22 and week 24. ]
    Serum values drawn every 3wks
  • Percent change in blood transfusion frequency [ Time Frame: Baseline 6 weeks and weeks 19-24 weeks ]
    Total packed red blood cells over 6 week periods

    IV iron infusion administration over 6 week periods.
  • Change in the averaged daily per bleed epistaxis severity [ Time Frame: Baseline 3 weeks and last 3 weeks [weeks 22-24] of the study ]
    A specific query on "severity" [0-10] will be asked daily or for each bleed within the current patient reported outcome and averaged over 3 week periods.
  • Establish the presence of an Active/ safe serum trough drug concentration [ Time Frame: baseline, 3, 6, 12, and 24 weeks. ]
    Samples will be sent for Pazopanib concentrations during the trial, steady state achieved within 3 weeks of time.
  • Change in composite mental quality of life score [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 and 24 weeks ]
    Short Form Health Survey 36 [range 0-100; with increase suggesting improvement in self-reported perception of mental health [change of 7 points considered clinically relevant]

    Short Form Health Survey 36 [range 0-100, with higher values representing improvement in self-reported perception of physical health; 7 point change considered clinically significant]
  • Monitor for a rise in Systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: Daily during the on-drug portion of the study; 24 weeks ]
    Daily electronic measurements, mm mercury, will be evaluated to assess upward trends as part of a safety monitoring, with triggers at 20mm mercury rise, or surpassing bp 140 mm mercury.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Pazopanib Effects on Bleeding in Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia
Official Title  ICMJE Randomized Double Blind Study to Evaluate the Effect of Low Dose Pazopanib on Bleeding Due to Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia
Brief Summary The investigators will study whether Pazopanib, taken daily for 6 months, will reduce the severity of nose bleeds in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Patients will either be provided drug or a placebo [sugar non-drug pill], and be tested for nose bleed severity throughout the trial, including particularly nose bleed duration. Investigators will also test for blood loss, as well as for safety.
Detailed Description Once a single dose pk study is performed to properly establish similar exposure with the prior pilot 50mg tablet, a double blind, placebo controlled study will follow, which proposes to define primarily the value of low dose Pazopanib on nose bleed duration, in the context of assessing perceived nose bleed severity. A 3mth follow-up period will support safety and efficacy elements. Secondary endpoints will be interrogated, including ongoing blood loss, use of iron and blood products, quality of life, and drug safety.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Phase 3
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:
After at least a 3wk baseline period, patients will be assigned low dose drug or placebo. After 3mths of therapy, if epistaxis duration endpoint has been reached, the drug dose will remain the same… However, if this end point is not reached, and no safety signals have been observed, the dose can be advanced up to double the initial dose. A strong initial trend would still permit continuance of the low dose intervention. Post-study drug discontinuance, a 3 month follow-up time period will continue assessments to define maintenance of effect, and/ or relapse. An interim to adjust total subject number, and potential futility occurs after 12 patients have completed their 24 week dosing period.
