Study Start Date: June 1998
Study Completion Date: August 2004
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene (HMAF) in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. II. Investigate the safety of HMAF given to this patient population.

OUTLINE: Patients receive 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene intravenously for 5 minutes every day for 5 consecutive days. Treatment is repeated every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed after every 2 treatment courses.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 12-37 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-19 months.
