  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as sirolimus, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well sirolimus works in treating patients with angiomyolipoma of the kidney.


Condition Intervention Phase
Nonmalignant Neoplasm Drug: sirolimus Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Multi-Center Study of Rapamycin for Treating Kidney Angiomyolipomas in TSC or LAM Patients

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response as assessed by RECIST criteria
  • Toxicity as measured by NCI CTC

Estimated Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: June 2005
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • Determine the efficacy of sirolimus, in terms of objective response rate, in patients with angiomyolipoma of the kidney secondary to tuberous sclerosis (TSC) or lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM).
  • Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

Secondary

  • Determine changes in other TSC lesions (e.g., tubers, subependymal giant cell astrocytomas, facial angiofibromas, or kidney cysts) in patients with TSC treated with this drug.
  • Determine changes in pulmonary disease in patients with LAM treated with this drug.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral sirolimus once daily for 12 months in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 6 months and 1 year.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 13-35 patients will be accrued for this study within 3-30 months.
