Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To Evaluate Efficacy of RAD001 as Monotherapy for the Treatment of Papillary Renal Cancer. Efficacy is Defined as the Percentage of Patients Progression-free at 6 Months. [ Time Frame: 6 mos ]
    PFSR at 6 months based on central review

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Control Rate (SD + PR + CR) [ Time Frame: 6 mos ]
    DCR was defined as the proportion of patients with a best overall response of CR, PR or SD and ORR as the percentage of patients with CR or PR

  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: End of trial ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of patients with tumor size reduction of a predefined amount and for a minimum time period. Response duration usually is measured from the time of initial response until documented tumor progression

  • Duration of Response [ Time Frame: End of trial ]
    The DOR analysis applied only to patients whose overall response was CR or PR and was defined as the time from onset of response (CR/PR) to progression or death from any cause.

  • Median Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: End of trial ]
    PFS was defined as the time from first study drug administration to objective tumor progression or death from any cause.

  • Incidence of Adverse Events, Serious Adverse Events, and Death. [ Time Frame: End of trial ]
