PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of RPI.4610 in treating patients who have metastatic kidney cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate of patients with metastatic renal cell cancer treated with RPI.4610. II. Determine the percentage of these patients with stable disease at 16 weeks after starting treatment with this drug. III. Assess the safety and tolerability of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive RPI.4610 subcutaneously daily. Treatment continues for 16 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable or responding disease may continue treatment after 16 weeks. Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.
An autoimmune disease of the KIDNEY and the LUNG. It is characterized by the presence of circulating autoantibodies targeting the epitopes in the non-collagenous domains of COLLAGEN TYPE IV in the basement membranes of kidney glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) and lung alveoli (PULMONARY ALVEOLI), and the subsequent destruction of these basement membranes. Clinical features include pulmonary alveolar hemorrhage and glomerulonephritis.
Long convoluted tubules in the nephrons. They collect filtrate from blood passing through the KIDNEY GLOMERULUS and process this filtrate into URINE. Each renal tubule consists of a BOWMAN CAPSULE; PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE; LOOP OF HENLE; DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE; and KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT leading to the central cavity of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS) that connects to the URETER.
Stones in the KIDNEY, usually formed in the urine-collecting area of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS). Their sizes vary and most contains CALCIUM OXALATE.
