A Multi-Center Single Agent Phase II Study of the Efficacy of Nilotinib in Patients With Relapsed or Metastatic Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis/Tenosynovial Giant Cell Tumor/Diffuse-Type Giant Cell Tumor

Nilotinib is a drug that is used to treat a form of a blood cancer called leukemia. Nilotinib works by blocking the action of a protein that might be important for the growth of pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS). In this research study the investigators are testing whether nilotinib can stop the growth of PVNS or improve the symptoms experienced from PVNS.

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
