Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: June 2005
Study Completion Date: December 2005
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: Sorafenib (BAY43-9006, Nexavar)
All subjects were given a open-label, single dose of 400mg sorafenib


Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Post menopausal females
  • Surgically sterile females
  • Body Mass Index between 18-37
  • Subjects with Clcr greater than 80 mL/min
  • Subjects with Clcr 50 to 80 mL/min
  • Subjects with Clcr 30 to 50 mL/min
  • Clcr less than 30 mL/min but not on dialysis
  • Subjects must test negative for HIV
  • Subjects must test negative for drugs of abuse at screening

Exclusion Criteria:

All Subjects :

  • Concomitant Medication: Treatment with CYP3A4 inducers, such as rifampin and St. John's Wort within 14 days of Day 1 until they leave the clinic on Day 7
  • Donation of blood within 30 days of Day 1
  • Recent participation in an investigational drug study during which active medication was given within 30 days of Day 1
  • History of gastrointestinal disorder that could result in incomplete absorption of study drug
  • Malignancy
  • Significant neurologic or psychiatric disorders
  • History of drug or alcohol abuse in year prior to screening for this trial, or current intake or >14 standard alcoholic drinks per week
  • Prior history of epilepsy or other seizure disorders
  • Known hypersensitivity to inhibitors of raf kinase or VEGFR-2
  • Females of child-bearing potential
  • Smoking > 10 cigarettes/day or equivalent
  • Excessive consumption (more than five 8-oz. cups/day) of coffee or caffeine

Healthy Volunteer:

  • Existing failure of a major organ system, or a medical disorder that would impair the subject's ability to complete the study (in the opinion of the investigator or the sponsor), eg history of blood coagulation disorders
  • Hematocrit value < 34% in the control group at screening

Renal Impairment Groups:

  • Existing failure of a major organ system or a medical disorder (other than the target disease) which would impair the subject's ability to complete the study (in the opinion of the investigator or the sponsor)
  • Concomitant Medication: Renal impairment subjects taking phosphate binders, ion exchange resins and/or iron supplements may take them with their meals, but must withhold them on the morning of Day 1 (dosing day) until after their 4 hour post-dose tests and procedures are performed.
  • Myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass graft or percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography within 6 months of Day 1; unstable angina; uncontrolled significant hypertension within 3 months of Day 1; cerebral vascular accident or transient ischemic attack within 12 months of Day 1
  • Subjects with hypertension who have had a medication or dose change within one week of Day 1
  • Subjects requiring dialysis
  • Subjects with kidney transplants
  • Liver transaminase (AST, ALT) greater than 5 times the ULN at screening; any active liver disease or unexplained or persistent elevations in liver function tests
  • Hematocrit value < 24% in the renal impaired groups
