Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine maximum tumor shrinkage, time to progression, survival, drug concentration, and degree of skin toxicity.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Drug: placebo Drug: Sorafenib Phase 3

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 57 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Dynamic-Contrast Enhanced MRI Pharmacodynamic Study of BAY 43-9006 in Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma
Study Start Date : July 2004
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2007
Actual Study Completion Date : June 2008

Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: I
placebo pill
Drug: placebo
Placebo for four weeks

Active Comparator: II
Sorafenib, 200 mg bid
Drug: Sorafenib
Sorafenib 200 mg twice daily

Active Comparator: III
Sorafenib, 400 mg bid
Drug: Sorafenib
Sorafenib, 400 mg twice daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine whether a new experimental MRI technique called "Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MRI" (DCE-MRI) can determine the best dose of sorafenib [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To predict which patients are most likely to experience tumor shrinkage. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
