Title

A Randomized, Double-Blind Phase II, Study of Gemcitabine Alone or in Combination with Pazopanib for Refractory Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Principal Investigator

Christopher Ryan

Study Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad between gembitabine given by itself and gemcitabine combined with the study drug, pazopanib. We currently do not know which of these two treatments is better. The drug gemcitabine will be given as an infusion and the drug pazopanib will be taken as a pill each day.

This randomized trial studies how well gemcitabine works with or without pazopanib in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma.
