Everolimus(RAD001) For Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma(RCC)Before Kidney Removal
The purpose of this multicenter, pilot, open-label, Phase II clinical trial is to discover if Everolimus(RAD001) is safe and effective in people who have advanced kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma - RCC).
Since 2002, Everolimus has been studied in more than 2500 patients with various types of cancer as a single agent (a drug that is used alone to treat the cancer) or in combination with a number of well known anticancer therapies. Various studies, in animals such as in mice with cancer and in humans with cancer have shown that Everolimus can slow the growth of cancer.
Everolimus will be taken in pill form by mouth daily for 3-5 weeks followed by surgery to remove the effected kidney. After 2-4 weeks following the surgery, Everolimus will be resumed at the same dose.
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Neoadjuvant Everolimus(RAD001)for Advanced RCC Before Cytoreductive Nephrectomy, With Correlative Tumor Studies (Protocol #: 06-08-20-01)|
- Disease progression diagnosed by biopsy [ Time Frame: disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||July 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||July 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Active Comparator: 1
All subjects will take everolimus
everolimus 10 mg PO once daily for 3-5 weeks followed by removal of the kidney. Everolimus will begin again between 2 to 4 weeks after surgery.
Everolimus has significantly improved outcomes following prior therapy. This study is a biomarker driven Phase II trial that will assess the activity of everolimus as first-line therapy for renal cell carcinoma. Following initial kidney tumor biopsy, everolimus is administered for 3-5 weeks before cytoreductive nephrectomy and everolimus is then resumed and continued until tumor progression or intolerable toxicities. Any correlation of tumor tissue biomarker changes from initial biopsy to nephrectomy specimen with long-term progression-free survival will be determined. This trial may enable the identification of factors predictive of significant benefit from everolimus administered as first-line therapy by employing the neoadjuvant therapy paradigm.
