An Extension Treatment Protocol for Subjects Who Have Participated in a Phase 3 Study of Tivozanib Versus Sorafenib in Renal Cell Carcinoma (Protocol AV-951-09-301)

2014-08-27 03:15:37 | BioPortfolio


Open-label, multi-center extension treatment protocol to allow access to tivozanib and sorafenib for subjects who have participated on the AV-951-09-301 protocol. Eligible subjects who were randomized to receive sorafenib on AV-951-09-301 and had documented progression of disease will receive a tivozanib dose of 1.5 mg/day. Eligible subjects who were randomized to tivozanib or sorafenib in AV-951-09-301, and displayed clinical benefit and acceptable tolerability to treatment, will continue to receive tivozanib or sorafenib at the same dose and schedule as in AV-951-09-301.


This is an extension treatment protocol to allow access to tivozanib or sorafenib for subjects enrolled on AV-951-09-301(parent protocol). Subjects who failed sorafenib on the parent protocol will be offered tivozanib. Subjects who were randomized to tivozanib, and demonstrated clinical benefit and acceptable tolerability will be offered long-term access to tivozanib. Subjects who were randomized to sorafenib, and demonstrated clinical benefit and acceptable tolerability will be offered long-term access to sorafenib. Subjects who continue receiving sorafenib on this protocol and progress will be allowed to cross-over to tivozanib.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
