- Symptomatic skeletal event (SSE)-free survival (FS) [ Time Frame: From the date of randomization to the date of the earliest occurrence of SSE or death from any cause, assessed up to 5 years ]SSE-FS distribution will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier by treatment arm. Comparison between the two arms will be performed using a one-sided log-rank test and one-sided p-value less than 0.025 will indicate that the experimental arm is superior to the control arm. SSE-FS will be censored at the date of last SSE assessment for those alive and SSE free. Hazard ratio (experimental over control arm) as well as two-sided 90% confidence interval (CI) for treatment will be estimated using the stratified Cox proportional hazard model with a single treatment covariate.
- Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Will be determined using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0. Adverse events will be summarized and compared between arms using chi-square or fisher exact tests as appropriate.
- SSE-FS [ Time Frame: From randomization to the date of SSE or death due to any cause, whichever comes first, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be estimated with the Kaplan Meier methodology. Comparison between arms or between predefined groups will be conducted using the log-rank test.
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From randomization to time of radiographic progression or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first, assessed up to 5 years ]Radiographic progression will be defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1. Will be estimated with the Kaplan Meier methodology. Comparison between arms or between predefined groups will be conducted using the log-rank test.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: From randomization to the date of death due to any cause, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be estimated with the Kaplan Meier methodology. Comparison between arms or between predefined groups will be conducted using the log-rank test. Patients who are alive will be censored at last follow up date.
- Time to first SSE [ Time Frame: From randomization to the date of first SSE or death due to any cause, assessed up to 5 years ]Will be determined in each treatment. The median estimate to first SSE-FS will be calculated.
- Overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]Will be defined by RECIST version 1.1. Number and proportion of patients achieving ORR (by RECIST) will be summarized with two-sided 90% CI by treatment arm; comparison between arms will be conducted using chi-square or Fisher's exact test as appropriate.

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Documented histologic or cytologic diagnosis of renal cell cancer (RCC). All subtypes of RCC are eligible including but not limited to clear cell, papillary, chromophobe, translocation, collecting duct carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, and unclassified categories. Enrollment of non-clear cell patients will be limited to 20% of the total sample size (~ 42 patients). Once this goal is met, accrual of non-clear cell patients will be discontinued (a notice will be sent out 2 weeks in advance). Sarcomatoid and rhabdoid differentiation are allowed
Presence of at least 1 metastatic bone lesion not treated with prior radiation is required.
- The presence of bone metastases can be detected by computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Tc-99m bone scan or positron emission tomography (PET) (fludeoxyglucose F-18 [FDG] or sodium fluoride [NaF]) imaging. Patients with non-measurable bone-only disease are allowed. Patients may have received prior radiation therapy for bone metastases or other external radiation >= 7 days prior to registration, as long as they still have at least 1 metastatic bone lesion not treated with radiation. Patients with visceral metastases are allowed, as long as they have at least one untreated bone metastases
- No prior treatment with cabozantinib
- No treatment with any type of small molecular kinase inhibitor (including investigational kinase inhibitors) within 2 weeks or 5 half-lives (whichever is shorter) of registration or receipt of any anti-cancer therapy (including investigational therapy, monoclonal antibodies, cytokine therapy) within 3 weeks of registration
- No prior hemibody external radiotherapy
- No prior therapy with radium-223 dichloride or systemic radiotherapy (such as samarium, strontium)
- No major surgery within 6 weeks of randomization. Procedures such as thoracentesis, paracentesis, percutaneous biopsy, Moh's or other topical skin surgery, Lasik eye surgery are not considered major surgery. Patients who have had a nephrectomy may be registered >= 3 weeks after surgery, providing there are no wound-healing complications. Subjects with clinically relevant ongoing complications from prior surgery are not eligible
- Recovery to baseline or =< grade 1 CTCAE version 5.0 from toxicity related to any prior treatment, unless adverse events are clinically nonsignificant and/or stable on supportive therapy
The use of osteoclast targeted therapy including either bisphosphonates or denosumab is mandated on this study except in patients with contraindications as determined by the treating investigator, including:
- Renal impairment including those with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) < 35 mL/min using the Cockcroft-Gault equation or acute renal impairment
Hypersensitivity to drug formulation
- Dental condition or need for dental intervention that per the investigator would increase the risk of osteonecrosis of jaw (ONJ).
- Use of osteoclast targeted therapy or reason against use needs to be recorded in the electronic case report form (eCRF). Additionally, reason for discontinuation of osteoclast targeted therapy need to be appropriately documented in the eCRF
Not pregnant and not nursing, because this study involves an investigational agent whose genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects on the developing fetus and newborn are unknown.
- Therefore, for women of childbearing potential only, a negative urine pregnancy test done =< 28 days prior to registration is required. A female of childbearing potential is a sexually mature female who: 1) has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or 2) has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months)
- Karnofsky performance status >= 60%
- No brain metastases or cranial epidural disease unless adequately treated with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, or surgery and stable for at least 4 weeks prior to registration as documented by MRI or CT imaging or deemed stable by clinical investigator. Treated brain metastases are defined as having no ongoing requirement for steroids and no evidence of progression or hemorrhage after treatment for at least 4 weeks prior to registration as documented by MRI or CT imaging or deemed stable by clinical investigator
- No imminent or established spinal cord compression based on clinical symptoms and/or imaging. In patients with untreated imminent or established spinal cord compression, treatment with standard of care as clinically indicated should be completed at least 2 weeks before registration
- No imminent or impending pathologic fracture based on clinical symptoms and/or imaging. In patients with untreated imminent or impending pathologic fracture, treatment with standard of care as clinically indicated should be completed at least 2 weeks before registration
No significant, uncontrolled intercurrent or recent illness, including but not limited to the following conditions:
- Cardiovascular disorders: Symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, serious cardiac arrhythmia; uncontrolled hypertension defined as sustained blood pressure > 150 mm Hg systolic or > 100 mm Hg diastolic despite optimal antihypertensive treatment; stroke (including transient ischemic attack), myocardial infarction, or other ischemic event, within 6 months before randomization; thromboembolic event (e.g., deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism) within 1 month before randomization
- Gastrointestinal disorders: Disorders associated with a high risk of perforation or fistula formation: active inflammatory bowel disease, active diverticulitis, active cholecystitis, active symptomatic cholangitis or active appendicitis, active acute pancreatitis or active acute obstruction of the pancreatic or biliary duct, or active gastric outlet obstruction; abdominal fistula, gastrointestinal perforation, bowel obstruction, or intra-abdominal abscess within 3 months before randomization.
