PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of SU5416 in treating patients who have metastatic kidney cancer that has not responded to previous therapy with interleukin-2.
- Determine the clinical activity of SU5416 in patients with progressive metastatic renal cancer failing prior biologic therapy or fluorouracil-containing regimens.
- Determine the changes in tumor perfusion in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the time to progression and survival in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive SU5416 IV over 1 hour twice weekly. Treatment continues every 6 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with complete response (CR) receive an additional 6 months of therapy after achieving CR.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 21-50 patients will be accrued for this study within 3-6 months.
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.
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.
Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.
