  Purpose

This randomized phase II trial studies different combinations of bevacizumab, temsirolimus, and sorafenib tosylate to see how well they work compared with bevacizumab alone in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab and sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Temsirolimus and sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving different combinations of bevacizumab, sorafenib tosylate, and temsirolimus may be more effective than bevacizumab alone in treating metastatic kidney cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Assessed every 2 cycles for the first 12 cycles, then every 3 cycles until treatment discontinuation, then every 8 weeks until disease progression or up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression-free survival is defined as time from randomization to clinical evidence of disease progression or death from any cause without progression. Patients alive without progression were censored at the date of last disease assessment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of Patients With Stable Disease at 6 Months [ Time Frame: Assessed every 2 cycles for the first 12 cycles, then every 3 cycles until treatment discontinuation, then every 8 weeks until disease progression or up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients whose date of progression was after 6 months or who were disease-free at last follow-up beyond 6 months were considered to be stable at 6 months and all other patients were not.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Assessed every 2 cycles for the first 12 cycles, then every 3 cycles until treatment discontinuation, then every 8 weeks until disease progression or up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival was defined as the time from randomization to death. Patients alive at last contact were censored on the date of last contact.

  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: Assessed every 2 cycles for the first 12 cycles, then every 3 cycles until treatment discontinuation, then every 8 weeks until disease progression or up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response was assessed using Solid Tumor Response Criteria (RECIST). Patients with complete responses or partial responses are considered having an objective response.
