  • Urine Protein to Creatinine Ratio (UPC) < 1; If UPC ratio 1, then a 24-hour urine protein must be assessed. Subjects must have a 24-hour urine protein value < 1 gram to be eligible Use of urine dipstick for renal function assessment is not acceptable
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test within 7 days of first dose of pazopanib. They must be willing to use effective contraception methods during the study and up to 7 days after the last pazopanib administration.
  • Affiliated to the French social security system.
  • Subjects must provide written informed consent prior to perform any study-specific procedure or assessment and must be willing to comply with treatment and follow up.

Note: Procedures conducted as part of the subject's routine clinical management (e.g., blood count, imaging study such as bone scan) and obtained prior to signing of informed consent may be utilized for screening or baseline purposes provided these procedures are conducted as specified in the protocol,

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Other histological sub-types of thyroid tumors like medullar carcinoma, anaplastic carcinoma, lymphoma or sarcoma,
  • Prior treatment with pazopanib,
  • Prior malignancy, Subjects who have had another malignancy and have been disease-free for 5 years, or subjects with a history of completely resected non-melanomatous skin carcinoma or successfully treated in situ carcinoma are eligible
  • Symptomatic metastases of Central nervous system (CNS) requiring or having required steroids or enzyme-inducing anticonvulsants within 4 weeks before inclusion ,
  • Clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding including, but not limited to:
  • Active peptic ulcer disease,
  • Known intraluminal metastatic lesion with risk of bleeding,
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease), or other gastrointestinal conditions with increased risk of perforation,
  • History of abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal perforation, or intra abdominal abscess within 28 days prior to begin study treatment,
  • Clinically significant gastrointestinal abnormalities that may affect absorption of investigational product including, but not limited to:
  • Malabsorption syndrome,
  • Major resection of the stomach or small bowel,
  • Corrected QT interval (QTc) > 480 msec (correction method according to the Bazett's method),
  • History of any one or more of the following cardiovascular conditions within the past 6 months :
  • Cardiac angioplasty or stenting,
  • Myocardial infarction,
  • Unstable angina,
  • Coronary artery bypass graft surgery,
  • Symptomatic peripheral vascular disease,
  • Class III or IV congestive heart failure, as defined by the New York Heart Association (NYHA),
  • Cerebrovascular accident including Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), pulmonary embolism or untreated Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), Subjects with recent DVT who have been treated with therapeutic anti-coagulating agents for at least 6 weeks are eligible,
  • Poorly controlled hypertension (systolic blood pressure 140 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure 90 mmHg) as described in the section 7.2 "Study requirements" of this protocol, Initiation or adjustment of antihypertensive medication(s) is permitted prior to study entry. At least one day after antihypertensive medication initiation or adjustment, blood pressure (BP) must be re-assessed three times at approximately 2-minute intervals. These three values should be averaged to obtain the mean diastolic blood pressure and the mean systolic blood pressure. The mean SBP / DBP ratio must be <140/90 mmHg (OR 150/90 mm Hg, if this criterion is approved by the coordination center) in order to be eligible.
  • Major surgery or trauma within 28 days prior to first dose of investigational product and/or presence of any non-healing wound, fracture, or ulcer (procedures such as catheter placement are not considered to be major surgery),
  • Evidence of active bleeding or bleeding diathesis,
  • Known endobronchial lesions and/or lesions infiltrating major pulmonary vessels that increase the risk of pulmonary hemorrhage, Lesions infiltrating major pulmonary vessels (contiguous tumor and vessels) are excluded; however, the presence of a tumor that is touching, but not infiltrating (abutting) the vessels is acceptable (CT with contrast is strongly recommended to evaluate such lesions).
  • Large protruding endobronchial lesions in the main or lobar bronchi are excluded; however, endobronchial lesions in the segmented bronchi are allowed.
  • Lesions extensively infiltrating the main or lobar bronchi are excluded; however, minor infiltrations in the wall of the bronchi are allowed.
  • Hemoptysis within the last 8 weeks before inclusion,
  • Have a known immediate or delayed hypersensitivity reaction or idiosyncrasy to drug,
  • Treatment with any of the following anti-cancer therapies :
  • radiation therapy, surgery or tumor embolization within 14 days prior to the first dose of pazopanib (analgesic radiation therapy is allowed if the radiation field doesn't include a potential target lesion for tumor assessments),
  • chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biologic therapy, investigational therapy or hormonal therapy within 14 days or five half-lives of a drug (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of pazopanib,
  • Administration of other oncologic drug or any non-oncologic investigational drug within 30 days (or 5 half lives whichever is longer) prior to receiving the first dose of study treatment, or planned to be administered during the study participation,
  • Unable or unwilling to discontinue use of prohibited medications listed in Section 6.2.4.c "Prohibited medications" for at least 14 days or five half-lives of a drug (whichever is longer) prior to the first dose of study drug and for the duration of the study,
  • Any ongoing toxicity from prior anti-cancer therapy that is > Grade 1 and/or that is progressing in severity (according to the NCI-CTC AE v4.0), except alopecia,
  • Any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric, or other condition that could interfere with subject's safety, provision of informed consent, or compliance to study procedures.
