Clinical Trials Using Sunitinib Malate

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Sunitinib Malate. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 1-7 of 7
  • Targeted Therapy Directed by Genetic Testing in Treating Patients with Advanced Refractory Solid Tumors, Lymphomas, or Multiple Myeloma (The MATCH Screening Trial)

    This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

  • TAPUR: Testing the Use of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Approved Drugs That Target a Specific Abnormality in a Tumor Gene in People With Advanced Stage Cancer

    The purpose of the study is to learn from the real world practice of prescribing targeted therapies to patients with advanced cancer whose tumor harbors a genomic variant known to be a drug target or to predict sensitivity to a drug. NOTE: Due to character limits, the arms section does NOT include all TAPUR Study relevant biomarkers. For additional information, contact, or if a patient, your nearest participating TAPUR site (see participating centers). ********************************************************************************************* ********************************************************************************* Results in publication or poster presentation format are posted as they become available for individual cohorts at / news.

  • Cabozantinib or Sunitinib Malate in Treating Participants with Metastatic Variant Histology Renal Cell Carcinoma

    This phase II trial studies of side effects of cabozantinib and sunitinib malate and to see how well they work in treating participants with variant histology kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Cabozantinib and sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Losartan and Sunitinib for the Treatment of Relapsed or Refractory Osteosarcoma

    This phase I / Ib trial studies the side effects, best dose, and anti-tumor activity of losartan and sunitinib in treating patients with osteosarcoma that has come back (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Losartan and sunitinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Sunitinib in Sarcomas of the Central Nervous System

    Background: A sarcoma is a rare cancer. It grows in the body s connective tissue. Sarcomas in the brain and central nervous system are especially rare. The drug Sunitinib has been approved in many countries for treating other types of rare or advanced cancers. These include kidney, pancreas, and bowel cancer. Researchers want to see if it can help people with sarcomas of the central nervous system. Objective: To study the effects of Sunitinib on gliosarcomas or sarcomas of the central nervous system. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 and older with a gliosarcoma or sarcoma of the central nervous system Design: Participants will be screened with the following tests. Some may be done as part of their regular cancer care: Medical history Medication review Physical exam Blood, heart, and pregnancy tests Cranial scans to locate and measure their tumor Participants will take Sunitinib by mouth every day for 2 weeks and then take none of the drug for 1 week. These 3 weeks equal 1 cycle. Participants will have 2 study visits in cycle 1. They will have 1 visit in all other cycles. They will answer questions about quality of life and repeat some screening tests. Participants will take their blood pressure at home weekly. They keep a diary of each dose of Sunitinib and blood pressure reading. Participants can choose to share data about their physical activity levels and quality of sleep. These participants will wear a small, portable watch-sized accelerometer device on the wrist for 6 cycles. About 1 month after their last study drug dose, participants will have a final study visit. They will have a physical exam, blood tests, and scans.

  • Pembrolizumab and Sunitinib Malate in Treating Participants with Refractory Metastatic or Unresectable Thymic Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab and sunitinib malate work in treating participants with thymic cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery and does not respond to treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving pembrolizumab and sunitinib malate may work better in treating thymic cancer.

  • Sunitinib Malate or Valproic Acid in Preventing Metastasis in Patients With High-Risk Uveal Melanoma

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well sunitinib malate or valproic acid works in preventing high-risk uveal (eye) melanoma from spreading to other parts of the body. Sunitinib malate may stop the transmission of growth signals into tumor cells and prevents these cells from growing. Valproic acid may change the expression of some genes in uveal melanoma and suppress tumor growth.
