RATIONALE: Sunitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
- Assess the activity of sunitinib malate, in terms of rate of progression-free survival for ≥ 6 months and objective tumor response, in patients with recurrent or persistent leiomyosarcoma of the uterus who have received 1 or 2 prior cytotoxic therapies.
- Determine the frequency and severity of adverse events.
- Determine the duration of progression-free survival and overall survival.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral sunitinib malate once daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 42 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 44 patients will be accrued for this study.
Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This randomized phase II trial studies how well cabozantinib-s-malate works compared to sunitinib malate in treating patients with previously untreated kidney cancer that has spread to nea...
This trial has two parts. The purpose of the first part of the trial is to determine the doses of 2 drugs, sunitinib malate and interferon alfa-2b, that can be given safely in combination....
This is a study using sunitinib for patients ending treatment on a previous sunitinib malate protocol to continue to receive sunitinib. The patient must have been enrolled in one of the f...

RATIONALE: Sunitinib malate and exemestane may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving sunitinib malate and exemestane before surgery ...
The compartmentalization of enzymes into organelles is a promising strategy for limiting metabolic crosstalk and improving pathway efficiency; however, prokaryotes are unicellular organisms that lack ...
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) represents 2%-3% of all cancers of the Western countries. Currently, sunitinib, a receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, particularly of PDGF and VEGF receptors, is the first-l...
Sunitinib is a non-selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor, but in its chemical structure there can be discovered certain features, which suggest the ability to bind to DNA. These elements are the planar ...
Angiogenesis is extensively developed in well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PanNET) where sunitinib was shown to prolong progression-free survival, leading to nationwide approval. ...
Aluminium-activated malate transporters (ALMT) form a family of anions channels in plants but little is known about most of its members. This study examined the function of OsALMT4 from rice (Oryza sa...
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of (S)-malate and NAD+ to oxaloacetate and NADH. EC 126.96.36.199.
A light-activated enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of (S)-malate to OXALOACETATE. It is involved in PYRUVATE metabolism and CARBON fixation.
An important enzyme in the glyoxylic acid cycle which reversibly catalyzes the synthesis of L-malate from acetyl-CoA and glyoxylate. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 188.8.131.52.
An enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the biosynthetic pathway to LEUCINE, forming isopropyl malate from acetyl-CoA and alpha-ketoisovaleric acid. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC 184.108.40.206.
An experimental sarcoma of mice.
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...
