Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess whether certain metabonomics and/or lipidomics features in correlation with pharmacokinetics before, during and after treatment with sunitinib or pazopanib in first line can predict toxicity and efficacy of sunitinib or pazopanib in metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Clear-cell Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Drug: patients with sunitinib or pazopanib Phase 4

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 90 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: A Proof of Concept Study to Evaluate the Use of Metabonomics and Lipidomics in Predicting Toxicity and Efficacy of Anti-VEGF Therapy in Patients With Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma
Study Start Date : December 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 2018
Actual Study Completion Date : March 1, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: patients with sunitinib or pazopanib
This will be a non-randomized, proof-of-concept, prospective, longitudinal, multi-center study in patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma with good or intermediate risk (based on MSKCC criteria) treated with sunitinib or pazopanib in first line.
Drug: patients with sunitinib or pazopanib
The treatment with sunitinib or pazopanib should comply with the recommendations written in the Belgian product information and the reimbursement criteria

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment assessment by using RECIST 1.1 and adverse events will be documented using the NCI-CTC coding system (version 4.0) [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Identifying the level metabolotype and/or lipidomotype of metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma patients before starting sunitinib or pazopanib (in comparison with healthy volunteers) on blood and urine samples by biochemistry techniques [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
