Title Pazopanib Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Metastatic Melanoma That Cannot be Removed by Surgery
Conditions Recurrent Melanoma
Stage IV Melanoma
Interventions Drug: pazopanib hydrochloride
Other: pharmacological study
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
Phase Phase 2
Purpose This phase II trial is studying the side effects of pazopanib hydrochloride and to see how well it works in treating patients with metastatic melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery. Pazopanib hydrochloride 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.
