- Week 2:Capecitabine / Interferon;
- Week 3:REST PERIOD / Interleukin;
- Week 4:Capecitabine / Interleukin;
- Week 5:Capecitabine / REST PERIOD;
- Week 6:REST PERIOD / Interferon;

- Week 13:Capecitabine / Interleukin;
- Week 14:Capecitabine / Interleukin;
DOSAGES AND ROUTES OF ADMINISTRATION:
Capecitabine orally from day 1 to 14 at a dose of 1000 mg/m2 twice daily every 21 days.
Interferon-alpha subcutaneously on days 1 + 3 + 5 weeks 1 + 2 +6 + 7,11+12 at a dose of 6 MIU/d.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether interleukin-2, interferon-alpha in combination with bevacizumab are effective in the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from a patient's dendritic cells and tumor cells may make the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells. Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's lymphocytes...
Renal cell carcinoma represents today 3% of the solid tumors of the adult. Their bad prognosis is due to the frequency of metastasis and the resistance to chemotherapy. Immunotherapy (inte...
RATIONALE: Interleukin-12 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of the cancer cells. Combining interleukin-12 with ...
The purpose of this study is to see if taking interferon or gemcitabine along with sorafenib will stop the advanced renal cell cancer from becoming worse in some people. To do this, sorafe...

Cell surface receptors for INTERLEUKIN-13. Included under this heading are the INTERLEUKIN-13 RECEPTOR ALPHA2 which is a monomeric receptor and the INTERLEUKIN-4 RECEPTOR TYPE II which has specificity for both INTERLEUKIN-4 and INTERLEUKIN-13.
Cell surface receptors for INTERLEUKIN-15. They are widely-distributed heterotrimeric proteins consisting of the INTERLEUKIN-15 RECEPTOR ALPHA SUBUNIT, the INTERLEUKIN-2, 15 RECEPTOR BETA SUBUNIT, and the INTERLEUKIN RECEPTOR COMMON GAMMA-CHAIN.
Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).
Subset of helper-inducer T-lymphocytes which synthesize and secrete interleukin-2, gamma-interferon, and interleukin-12. Due to their ability to kill antigen-presenting cells and their lymphokine-mediated effector activity, Th1 cells are associated with vigorous delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions.
