|Official Title:||Phase I/II Trial of RAD001 Plus Nexavar® For Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma|
- Phase I: To establish the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) and safety profile of RAD001 in combination with Nexavar® in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Phase II: Study the anti-tumor effects of RAD001 plus Nexavar® [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- Phase II: Response rate [ Time Frame: restaging every 8 weeks ]
- Duration of tumor response [ Time Frame: restaging every 8 weeks ]
- Progression free survival [ Time Frame: restaging every 8 weeks ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: restaging every 8 weeks ]
- Study the safety of RAD001 plus Nexavar® given at MTD. [ Time Frame: AEs as occur ]

To establish the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) of RAD001 in combination with Nexavar®
RAD001 will be administered orally once a day, daily, without interruption per 4 wk cycle for 2 cycles. MTD is established in Phase I portion of trial (2.5, 5 or 10mg). If responding, additional therapy will be given.
Other Name: EverolimusDrug: Sorafenib
A dose of 400mg of Nexavar® will be administered orally twice a day, daily, without an interruption per 4 week cycle for 2 cycles. If responding, additional therapy will be given.
Other Name: Nexavar®, BAY-4900
Despite significant progress in understanding the biology of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), it is estimated that over 35, 000 people in the United States will be diagnosed and approximately 12, 000 have died from this disease in 2005. Renal cell carcinoma presently ranks tenth as the leading cause of cancer death and constitutes 3% of all solid neoplasms.
In contrast to many other malignancies, treatment for RCC is limited. Treatment remains a highly difficult and perplexing challenge due to its resistance to both chemotherapy and hormone therapy and limited response to cytokines. Despite recent advances in our fundamental knowledge of RCC biology and development of molecular therapeutics, more clinical research will be required to best guide our use of these exciting new agents in combination regimens.
The combination of RAD001 and Nexavar®, in current clinical trials with minimal toxicity, represents a treatment regimen which should be investigated for tolerance and toxicity as well as initial phase II efficacy. The study is designed to evaluate the MTD. Following the completion of the phase I, utilizing the MTD, Phase II study is designed to evaluate the anti-tumor activity.
