This is an open-label, 2 part study of pazopanib and/or MK 3475 in treatment naïve subjects with advanced RCC. Part 1 consists of a Phase I dose escalation of pazopanib + MK 3475 followed by an expansion cohort to determine the maximum tolerated regimen and the recommended Phase II dose. Part 2 is a randomized 3-arm Phase II study to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of pazopanib + MK 3475 as compared to single-agent pazopanib and single-agent MK 3475. The objectives of this Phase I/II study are to test the safety and tolerability of pazopanib in combination with MK 3475, and study the clinical efficacy of pazopanib in combination with MK 3475 in subjects with advanced RCC as compared with single-agent pazopanib and single-agent MK 3475.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study will be a single arm phase II clinical trial of 8 weeks of daily, oral neo-adjuvant pazopanib prior to nephrectomy in 39 evaluable patients with histologically confirmed localiz...
This is a Phase II, non-randomized, open-label, single-arm study in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who have received one prior targeted therapy with either sunitinib or beva...
This study will determine whether blood tests, tumour imaging and tumour tissue analysis can reveal effects of drugs that block blood vessel growth (angiogenesis) in patients with renal ca...
This is a randomized, Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of pazopanib plus abexinostat versus pazopanib plus placebo in patients with locally advanced unresectable or metastat...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus epacadostat compared to sunitinib or pazopanib in participants with locally advanced/metastatic renal...
The development of new targeted therapies in kidney cancer has shaped disease management in the metastatic phase. Our study aims to conduct a cost-utility analysis of sunitinib versus pazopanib in fir...
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) is the most aggressive form of renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Purpose Sunitinib and pazopanib are multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) that act against vascular endothelial growth factor receptors and are standard first-line treatment options for meta...
Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma (MTSCC) is a variant of renal cell carcinoma newly added to the WHO classification in 2004. It is a rare variant of renal cell carcinoma and sometimes it is...
The most frequent type of renal cell carcinoma is called clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) which is associated with a poor prognosis. It has been observed that miR-137 is aberrantly expressed in...
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)
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
