Phase II Study of Afinitor vs. Sutent in Patients With Metastatic Non-Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma
To compare the anti-tumor activity of everolimus and sunitinib in subjects with mRCC with non-clear cell pathology.
This will be an international (USA, Canada, and UK) open-label, outpatient, multicenter, randomized study of treatment with RAD001 (everolimus (Afinitor®) or sunitinib (Sutent®) in subjects with mRCC and non-clear cell histology. Special emphasis is placed on papillary and chromophobe histologies while sarcomatoid clear cell variants, medullary, and collecting duct carcinomas will be excluded (see eligibility). Subjects may continue receiving study drugs until disease progression, unacceptable toxicities, or withdrawal of consent, for a maximum of 24 months. Continuation of study assigned treatment will be allowed beyond 24 months at the discretion of the sponsor. Stratification variables will include histology (papillary vs. chromophobe) and Motzer risk criteria (0, 1-2, and 3). Tumor progression will be assessed locally and by independent review, in strict accordance with Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST 1.1) criteria measured every 12 weeks. At the time of progression, subjects will be taken off study other than simple administrative mortality follow-up. Primary pathologic samples and plasma/urine angiokine levels at baseline and over time will be collected and stored centrally for biomarker analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Carcinoma, Renal Cell
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.
A rare tumor of the female genital tract, most often the ovary, formerly considered to be derived from mesonephric rests. Two varieties are recognized: (1) clear cell carcinoma, so called because of its histologic resemblance to renal cell carcinoma, and now considered to be of muellerian duct derivation and (2) an embryonal tumor (called also ENDODERMAL SINUS TUMOR and yolk sac tumor), occurring chiefly in children. The latter variety may also arise in the testis. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Von Hippel-lindau Disease
An autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. This syndrome is characterized by abnormal growth of small blood vessels leading to a host of neoplasms. They include HEMANGIOBLASTOMA in the RETINA; CEREBELLUM; and SPINAL CORD; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; pancreatic tumors; and renal cell carcinoma (see CARCINOMA, RENAL CELL). Common clinical signs include HYPERTENSION and neurological dysfunctions.
Carcinoma, Non-small-cell Lung
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Carcinoma, Merkel Cell
A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
This will be a prospective, open-label, randomized multicenter phase-II study to evaluate progression free survival (PFS) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-clear cell ren...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether BNC105P in combination with/following everolimus is effective in the treatment of progressive metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma f...
The purpose of this research study is to further define an effective strategy for people with renal cell carcinoma and to learn the safety and effectiveness of two different types of sunit...
The safety and tolerability of CVX-060 have been established in the first-in-human clinical trial, CVX-060-101. Thus, this phase Ib/II trial is to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics (...
The purpose of this study is to determine if certain features of tumor specimens sampled prior to therapy can predict for the likelihood of responding to everolimus.
A 70-year-old man with metastatic renal cell carcinoma developed progressive liver metastases after 8 weeks of treatment with the multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) sunitinib. He then parti...
Sunitinib is associated with a robust objective response rate in patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The primary objective of this phase II clinical trial was to assess the...
PURPOSE: Sunitinib is an approved treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma. We performed a prospective clinical trial to evaluate the safety and clinical response to sunitinib administered before...
Sunitinib is a multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is effective for advanced renal cell carcinoma. However, sunitinib often causes hypothyroidism. In this study, we report eight cases with t...
