Exclusions (conditions that would prevent participation in this study)
  • No active infection requiring antibiotics

  • No invasive malignancies within the past 3 years except nonmelanoma skin cancer or curatively treated localized cancer of the breast, head and neck, or skin
  • No serious non-healing wound, ulcer, or bone fracture, including the following:

    • History of abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal perforation, or intra-abdominal abscess within the past 28 days

    • Known bleeding disorder
    • Coagulopathy disorder
    • Tumor involving major vessels
  • No uncontrolled seizures with standard medical therapy
  • No clinically significant cardiovascular disease including, but not limited to, any of the following:

    • Myocardial infarction or unstable angina within the past 6 months
    • NYHA grade II-IV congestive heart failure or serious cardiac arrhythmia requiring medication

      • Patients who received prior anthracycline treatment, including doxorubicin hydrochloride and/or liposomal doxorubicin, and have an ejection fraction < normal are not eligible for this study
    • Peripheral vascular disease ≥ grade 2 as assessed by NCI CTCAE
    • History of cerebrovascular accident (e.g., CVA, stroke), transient ischemic attack, or subarachnoid hemorrhage within the past 6 months
    • Mean QTc > 500 msec or history of familial long QT syndrome
  • No known hypersensitivity to Chinese hamster ovary cell products or other recombinant human or humanized antibodies
  • Recovered from recent surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy
  • At least 1 week since prior hormonal therapy directed at the malignant tumor
  • At least 3 weeks since any other prior anticancer therapy
  • One prior cytotoxic regimen for management of recurrent or persistent disease allowed

    • Cytotoxic regimens include any agent that targets the genetic and/or mitotic apparatus of dividing cells, resulting in dose-limiting toxicity to the bone marrow and/or gastrointestinal mucosa
  • No prior non-cytotoxic chemotherapy for management of recurrent or persistent disease

    • Prior hormonal therapy allowed
  • No prior cediranib maleate or other VEGF pathway-targeted therapy
  • No prior cancer treatment that contraindicates this protocol therapy
