NCT01624766
First received: June 19, 2012
Last updated: March 18, 2014
Last verified: March 2014
  Purpose

The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the combination of Afinitor (everolimus) either with Kineret (anakinra) or Xgeva (denosumab) that can be given to patients with advanced cancer. The safety of these drugs will also be studied.

Everolimus is designed to stop cells from dividing.

Anakinra is designated to block a protein that is involved in tumor development, new blood vessels growing, and spread of cancer.

Denosumab is designed to block the activity of a protein, which may prevent bone complications in cancer that has spread to the bone.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    If more than 33% of patients enrolled at any particular dose level develop dose limiting toxicity (DLT), treatment will continue at dose level immediately below. If not more than 33% of patients in cohort develop DLT, this cohort will be considered the MTD.
