An Expanded Phase I Study of Pazopanib and Everolimus in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors and Previously Treated Advanced Urothelial Cancer

Status: Recruiting
Phase: Phase 1
Diagnosis: Kidney Cancer
NCT ID: NCT01184326 (View complete trial on
DFCI Protocol ID: 10-166


This research study is evaluating the combination of pazopanib and everolimus in patients that have a malignancy that is metastatic or unresectable and for which standard curative or palliative measures do not exist or are no longer effective, or metastatic or locally advanced unresectable kidney cancer. In this research study the investigators are testing the safety of the combination of pazopanib and everolimus as well as to find the appropriate dose to use for further studies.
