This is an open label, non-randomized, single arm phase II study. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the efficacy of combination of sorafenib and VELCADE® (bortezomib). The primary efficacy endpoint is Progression-Free Survival (PFS). The secondary objectives of this study are to:
Assess the response rate of this combination in this patient population and Assess the toxicity of this combination in this patient population
3.1.1 Pretreatment, a complete history and physical examination to include performance status, weight and concurrent non-malignant disease and therapy will be done before starting treatment. Prior surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy details will be noted.
3.1.2 Prior to the initiation of treatment, laboratory studies should include a CBC with differential cell count, platelet count, urinalysis, complete metabolic profile, magnesium and electrocardiogram. A baseline imaging study of the tumor will be performed. Other X-rays will be done as clinically indicated.
3.1.3 Physical examination, performance status and toxicity recording will be done before each course of therapy.
3.1.4 During the study, patients will be followed with CBC, differential and platelet counts on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Chemistries will also be performed before each course within a 3 day leeway prior to treatment. Clinical schedules will be considered when scheduling patients for treatment, specimen collection and processing, and specimen shipment.
3.1.5 Measureable and evaluable disease will be evaluated by the same imaging studies done at baseline and every 2 courses thereafter to determine tumor response.
3.1.6 For patients on warfarin, INR testing will be performed prior to the first cycle, weekly during the first cycle, and then prior to day one for subsequent cycles if the INR is in an acceptable range during the first cycle. If the INR has not been in an acceptable range during the first cycle, the INR will be monitored weekly until the value is stable on three consecutive measurements one week apart.
3.1.7 Since Sorafenib is a competitive inhibitor of CYP3A4 patients will be assessed each cycle for medications or changes in diet that would affect CYP3A4 b metabolism.

Purpose To determine efficacy and safety of Testosterone in male patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma and fatigue receiving targeted therapy or checkpoint inhibitors.
The purpose of this research study is to determine if the combination of sunitinib and gemcitabine is effective in treating patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. The safety of th...
Adoptive T cell therapy (ACT) with tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) has achieved impressive clinical results with durable complete responses in patients with metastatic melanoma. The T...
This research study is investigating a drug as a possible treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma. The intervention involved in this study is TAK-228.
The expression of IL-8 and FGFR has been related to prognosis and pathological features in renal cell carcinoma. We investigated the relationship between IL-8 and FGFR and the outcome in metastatic re...
The prognostic value of obesity is unestablished for renal cell carcinoma. We assessed the age-dependent prognostic value of body mass index (BMI) in a large multicenter cohort of patients with non-me...
B7-H4 is a member of the B7 family of immune-regulatory ligands and is considered to be a negative regulator of the immune response. We investigated the clinical significance of serum soluble B7-H4 in...
Renal cell cancer accounts for approximately 2-3% of all cases of malignancy. The incidence of kidney cancer in the Czech Republic is the highest in the world. Approximately 70% of renal cell carcinom...
To investigate the prognostic significance of various patterns of extrarenal extension that comprise pathologic stage T3a clear cell renal cell carcinoma among patients undergoing nephrectomy for non-...
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 systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
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...
