To compare the anti-tumor activity of everolimus and sunitinib in subjects with mRCC with non-clear cell pathology.
This will be an international (USA, Canada, and UK) open-label, outpatient, multicenter, randomized study of treatment with RAD001 (everolimus (Afinitor®) or sunitinib (Sutent®) in subjects with mRCC and non-clear cell histology. Special emphasis is placed on papillary and chromophobe histologies while sarcomatoid clear cell variants, medullary, and collecting duct carcinomas will be excluded (see eligibility). Subjects may continue receiving study drugs until disease progression, unacceptable toxicities, or withdrawal of consent, for a maximum of 24 months. Continuation of study assigned treatment will be allowed beyond 24 months at the discretion of the sponsor. Stratification variables will include histology (papillary vs. chromophobe) and Motzer risk criteria (0, 1-2, and 3). Tumor progression will be assessed locally and by independent review, in strict accordance with Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST 1.1) criteria measured every 12 weeks. At the time of progression, subjects will be taken off study other than simple administrative mortality follow-up. Primary pathologic samples and plasma/urine angiokine levels at baseline and over time will be collected and stored centrally for biomarker analysis.

This is a study to determine the clinical benefit (how well the drug works), safety, and tolerability of combining varlilumab and sunitinib. The study will enroll patients with metastatic...
We previously performed microRNA (miRNA) microarray to identify effective indicators of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) tissue samples and preoperative/postoperative plasma in which we identif...
To dissect the functioning mode of miR-645 on renal clear cell carcinoma cell metastasis and growth, and provide therapeutic targets for renal clear cell carcinoma.
Background Nivolumab plus ipilimumab produced objective responses in patients with advanced renal-cell carcinoma in a pilot study. This phase 3 trial compared nivolumab plus ipilimumab with sunitinib ...
The randomised phase III clinical trial Checkmate-214 showed a survival superiority for the combination of ipilimumab and nivolumab when compared with the previous standard of care in first-line metas...
The objective of this study was to explore the prognostic significance of the preoperative computed tomography (CT) features in clear cell renal cell carcinoma.
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.
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)
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 carbonic anhydrase and transmembrane protein that consists of an N-terminal PROTEOGLYCAN-like domain, a catalytic region, a single-pass transmembrane domain, and a short intracellular tail. It functions as a dimer and is expressed primarily by cells of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT; BILE DUCT EPITHELIUM; and GALL BLADDER. It is expressed at high levels in many solid tumors, especially CLEAR CELL RENAL CARCINOMA, in response to CELL HYPOXIA.
Renal Cell Carcinoma
Renal cell cancer (renal adenocarcinoma or hypernephroma) is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. More than 8 in every 10 (80%) kidney cancers diagnosed in the UK are this type. In renal cell cancer the cancerous cells start in the lini...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
