Clinical Trials Using Vandetanib

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Vandetanib. 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 1-5 of 5
  • Cisplatin or Carboplatin and Etoposide With or Without Vandetanib in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer or High-Grade or Poorly Undifferentiated Neuroendocrine Cancer

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide with or without vandetanib works in treating patients with previously untreated extensive stage small cell lung cancer or high-grade or poorly differentiated neuroendocrine cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Vandetanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether giving cisplatin or carboplatin and etoposide is more effective with or without vandetanib in treating small cell lung cancer or neuroendocrine cancer.

  • Adaptive Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Therapy in Treating Patients with Advanced Differentiated Thyroid Cancer or Medullary Thyroid Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well adaptive tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy works in treating patients with differentiated thyroid cancer or medullary thyroid cancer that has spread extensively to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment. Lenvatinib, sorafenib, cabozantinib, or vandetanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving tyrosine kinase inhibitors at certain time points may work better than continuous treatment.

  • Vandetanib in Combination With Metformin in People With HLRCC or SDH-Associated Kidney Cancer or Sporadic Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Background: - There are no established treatments for people with certain advanced kidney cancers. These tumors often don t respond well to currently available treatments. Researchers believe that two drugs that treat other diseases metformin and vandetanib could help people with advanced kidney cancer. Objective: - To test the combination of metformin and vandetanib in people with advanced kidney cancer. Phase I of the study will determine a safe dose for the drugs. Phase II will test this dose in people with certain kidney cancers. Eligibility: - For Phase I, people 18 and over with advanced kidney cancer - For Phase II, people 18 and over with advanced hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC), succinate dehydrogenase renal cell carcinoma (SDH-RCC), or advanced papillary renal cell carcinoma not related to a hereditary syndrome Design: - The study will last many months. - Participants will be screened with medical history and physical exam. - Participants will take the study drugs by mouth every day. - Participants will measure and record their blood pressure every day. - Participants will have many tests: - Blood and urine tests - MRI, CT, PET scan, and other imaging tests: they will lie in machines that take pictures of their body. - ECG: soft electrodes will be stuck to the skin. A machine will record the heart s signals. - Bone scan - Some participants may have a gynecology evaluation or photos of skin tumors taken. - Participants will have an optional tumor biopsy. - After they stop taking the drugs, participants may have medical history, physical exam, and blood tests. They will be contacted once a year by phone to find out how they are doing.

  • Vandetanib and Everolimus in Treating Patients with Advanced or Metastatic Cancer

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of vandetanib and everolimus when given together in treating patients with cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Vandetanib and everolimus may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • Genomic Based Assignment of Therapy in Advanced Urothelial Carcinoma

    Background: Advanced urothelial cancer has no cure. But only a few chemotherapy drugs have been tested for it. The Co-eXpression ExtrapolatioN (COXEN) model predicts if cells respond to treatment. It may also help determine which drugs fight urothelial cancer based on the characteristics of a tumor. Researchers want to test if this model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks and how tumors respond to the next best therapy. Objective: To test if the COXEN model can choose the best therapy for advanced urothelial cancer within 3 weeks. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older whose urothelial cancer has spread after at least 1 line of chemotherapy Design: Participants will be screened with medical history, physical exam, blood and urine tests, and tumor scans. Participants will provide a tumor sample from a previous surgery and a new biopsy. A needle will remove a small piece of tumor. Participants will repeat screening tests, plus have an EKG and scan. For the scan, they will get an injection of radioactive drug. They will lie in a machine that takes pictures. Participants will take the drugs assigned by the COXEN model. They will have visits every 2 3 weeks. These will include blood and urine tests. Participants will have tumor scans every 8 9 weeks. Participants may have another biopsy. Participants will take the drugs until they can t tolerate the side effects or their cancer worsens. They may be assigned to a second COXEN therapy. Participants will have a follow-up visit 4 5 weeks after their last drug dose. Participants will be contacted by phone every few months until death.
