The PAZNTIS multicenter trial by the Children’s Oncology Group studies how well pazopanib hydrochloride, combination chemotherapy, and radiation therapy work in treating young patients with newly diagnosed non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcomas (NRSTS). In adults with certain NRSTS, pazopanib has been shown to have anti-tumor effects.
Subject to certain exclusion criteria, this study is open to pediatric patients of both genders, age 2 or greater, who have been newly diagnosed with an intermediate- or high-risk NRSTS that could not be removed by surgery at the time of diagnosis.
Males and Females: Ages 2 years and up
For this study, participants will receive oral doses of pazopanib along with standard chemotherapy for the 12-week induction phase. If the tumor has responded to therapy, it will be removed by surgery and the patient will advance to the 9-week continuation phase, during which the study drug will continue to be provided with chemotherapy, possibly supported by radiation therapy and additional surgery.
Visits: Same number as required for standard chemotherapy
Duration: About 6 months
