|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma||Drug: sorafenib||Phase 2|
Advanced RCC presents poor prognosis, because its pathogenesis is not clearly understood. However, up-regulation of the Ras pathway is thought to play a role.
VEGF expression could represent independent prognostic factors for survival possibly linking expression of this protein with clinical outcome.
Sorafenib is a potent inhibitor of both Raf-kinase and VEGF R2 signalling The anti-tumoral activity of Sorafenib was clearly demonstrated in phase III trial regarding advanced pretreated RCC.
Surgical removal of metastatic disease could potentially increase the disease control rate.
Particularly in patients with a disease free interval post nephrectomy of at least 1 year, with one small metastatic lesion, metastasectomy could represents an important therapeutic approach.
After a radical resection of the metastatic disease is unclear if an anti-tumoral systemic therapy may increase patient survival.
In summary, both the preclinical and clinical data support further evaluation of Sorafenib in RCC patients.
