The purpose of the study is to:
- Find out if BAY 43-9006 prevents the growth of tumors
- For patients who have stable cancer status after 3 months of treatment if it is safer and/or more effective to continue to give BAY 43-9006 or to stop giving BAY 43-9006 at that time.
- Find out how long the effect of BAY 43-9006 is on tumors. To assess the safety of BAY 43-9006 (sorafenib) in the treatment of advanced refractory cancers.
- Measure the amount of BAY 43-9006 and some of its targets in the blood stream in some patients.

To determine the tolerability, maximum tolerated dose, and pharmacokinetics of this drug.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety, efficacy (including quality of life), and pharmacokinetics of BAY43-9006 when added to Best Supportive Care in patients with unresectable a...
Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of Nexavar ® in advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) and calculation of related medical costs.
This study is to investigate safety, pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy profile of sorafenib in combination with S-1 plus cisplatin in Asian patients with unresectable / recurrent g...
This is a randomized trial to evaluate the clinical benefit of sorafenib 400 mg twice daily and erlotinib 150 mg once a day versus sorafenib 400 mg twice daily and placebo erlotinib once d...
To fully clarify the role of Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase in the therapeutic response to Sorafenib in Renal Cell Carcinoma as well as the cell death mechanism associated to this kinase inhibitor, ...
Ras association domain family member 6 (RASSF6) has been shown to act as a tumor suppressor and predictor of poor prognosis in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, little is known about the effects of...
The purpose of this work was to investigate the effect of sorafenib or sunitinib as neoadjuvant therapy on the survival outcomes of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with tumor thrombus.
Advanced cancer has been shown to be associated with a higher percentage of epigenetic changes than with genetic mutations. Preclinical models have shown that the combination of paclitaxel, sorafenib,...
Although sorafenib enhances overall survival, sorafenib resistance has been reported to be a significant limiting factor for improved prognosis in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Therefo...
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.
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.
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.
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)
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)
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
