Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer (OSI-774)
RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of erlotinib in treating patients who have advanced kidney cancer.
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment

OSI-774 is an orally active, potent, selective inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase.
Other Name: OSI-774
- Determine the antitumor activity of erlotinib in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.
- Evaluate the safety and tolerability, in terms of the toxicity profile, of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the biologic activity of this drug, in terms of early disease progression, progression-free survival, 12-month survival rate, and overall survival, in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacodynamics of this drug in these patients.
- Analyze the postreceptor effects of epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosinase kinase inhibition by this drug on cell cycle, apoptosis, and angiogenesis in tumor biopsies from these patients.
- Correlate changes in biological measurements with indices of outcome in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive oral erlotinib once daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 4 weeks for 52 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 2 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-40 patients will be accrued for this study within 8-10 months.
