Phase I;To investigate the clinically recommended dose of Sunitinib malate (SU011248) following multiple oral dosing in the first cycle (4 consecutive weeks and 2 weeks rest) by reviewing the safety and tolerability.
Phase II;To determine the objective tumor response and the safety of Sunitinib malate (SU011248) at the clinically recommended dose.

RATIONALE: SU011248 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. It is not yet known if SU011248 is effective in treating malignant gastrointestin...
Children and young adults with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) will be treated with sunitinib. The safety (including pharmacokinetics) and tolerability of sunitinib will be studied ...
A phase IIIb study of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors who have had progressive disease while on 400 mg imatinib. Patients will be randomly assigned to either sunitinib 37.5 ...
RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate and sunitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effe...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if Sutent® (sunitinib malate, SU011248) can control the disease in patients with germ cell tumors that are resistant to earlier treatm...
Sorafenib has shown efficacy in patients with imatinib-, sunitinib-, and regorafenib-resistant gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). No biomarker is currently available for predicting response to s...
The majority of available data on the clinical efficacy of sunitinib in patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) are from studies of western populations...
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are the most frequent neoplasms of mesenchymal origin affecting the gastrointestinal tract. GISTs quite frequently co-exist with other primary tumors in up to 3...
The progression-free survival (PFS) is not optimal when imatinib was recommended for treatment of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) undergoing surgery after tumor local or multifocal progression.
The role of surgical resection for patients with recurrent or metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumors is still controversial. This meta-analysis aims to investigate the clinical outcomes of surgery...
Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).
All tumors in the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT arising from mesenchymal cells (MESODERM) except those of smooth muscle cells (LEIOMYOMA) or Schwann cells (SCHWANNOMA).
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of (S)-malate and NAD+ to oxaloacetate and NADH. EC 188.8.131.52.
Neoplasms derived from the primitive sex cord or gonadal stromal cells of the embryonic GONADS. They are classified by their presumed histogenesis and differentiation. From the sex cord, there are SERTOLI CELL TUMOR and GRANULOSA CELL TUMOR; from the gonadal stroma, LEYDIG CELL TUMOR and THECOMA. These tumors may be identified in either the OVARY or the TESTIS.
A light-activated enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of (S)-malate to OXALOACETATE. It is involved in PYRUVATE metabolism and CARBON fixation.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
