Bevacizumab, Erlotinib, and Imatinib in the Treatment of Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma

This study has been completed.

This phase I/II trial will evaluate the bevacizumab/erlotinib combination with the addition of imatinib (Gleevec). The combined inhibition greatly enhances the anti-tumor effects. Although the safety of the bevacizumab/erlotinib/imatinib combination has not yet been demonstrated, the mild to moderate side effects of all of these agents are not predicted to cause prohibitive toxicity. A brief phase I portion will be included in this trial, to optimize doses of the 3 agents prior to proceeding with the phase II trial.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate (ORR), the Percentage of Patients Who Experience an Objective Benefit From Treatment [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

  • Progression Free Survival (PFS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Worsening of Their Disease [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
  • Overall Survival (OS), the Length of Time, in Months, That Patients Were Alive From Their First Date of Protocol Treatment Until Death [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Enrollment: 94
Study Start Date: June 2004
Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
