Pazopanib (paz) is an oral angiogenesis inhibitor targeting VEGFR, PDGFR, and c-kit; lapatinib (lap) is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor of EGFR and HER2. The combination may provide synergistic activity in malignant glioma. The efficacy of daily paz/lap (400mg/1000mg) in relapsed grade 4 glioma was previously reported. This study determined the optimally tolerated regimen (OTR) of paz/lap when given with enzyme-inducing anticonvulsants (EIACs).


Patients (pts) with Grade 3 or 4 glioma were treated with escalating doses of paz/lap in a 3+3 design.
