|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00278174|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : January 18, 2006
Last Update Posted : May 4, 2011
RATIONALE: Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of tumor cells and slow the growth of kidney cancer.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well interferon alfa works in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Kidney Cancer||Biological: recombinant interferon alpha-1b||Phase 2|
- Determine the objective response rate in patients with metastatic renal clear cell carcinoma treated with interferon alfa-1b.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.
Patients receive interferon alfa-1b subcutaneously daily. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30 patients will be accrued for this study.
