|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Carcinoma, Renal Cell Kidney Diseases Kidney Neoplasms Urogenital Neoplasms Urologic Diseases Urologic Neoplasms Neoplasms Neoplasms by Histologic Type Clear-cell Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma||Drug: Combination of varlilumab and sunitinib||Phase 1|
Varlilumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds to a molecule called CD27 found on certain immune cells and may act to promote anti-tumor effects.
Sunitinib is a small molecule that inhibits multiple receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) some of which play a role in tumor growth and progression of cancer.
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of the anti-CD27 antibody varlilumab in combination with sunitinib.
Eligible patients that enroll in the dose escalation portion of the study will be assigned to one of three dose levels of varlilumab in combination with 50 mg of sunitinib. The first phase of the study will test the safety profile of the combination and determine which dose of varlilumab will be studied in Phase ll* of the overall study.
*Note: This Study was terminated prior to initiation of Phase II.
All patients enrolled in the study will be closely monitored to determine if there is a response to the treatment as well as for any side effects that may occur.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||17 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Phase l/ll Study of Varlilumab in Combination With Sunitinib in Patients With Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date :||May 2015|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||August 2017|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||November 3, 2017|
|Experimental: Varlilumab and Sunitinib||
Drug: Combination of varlilumab and sunitinib
During the treatment phase of the study, eligible patients will receive varlilumab for up to 8 cycles. Treatment cycles are 6 weeks each with varlilumab administered once every 3 weeks and sunitinib administered daily for 4 weeks followed by a 2 week rest. There is no limit on the number of cycles of sunitinib. Patients may be discontinued from receiving study treatment (sunitinib or varlilumab) based on the results of disease assessments or if experiencing side effects that make study therapy intolerable.
Phase l Dose: The planned dose of varlilumab will be dependent on the cohort assigned at enrollment. Varlilumab doses are 0.3 mg/kg, 1 mg/kg or 3 mg/kg.
The Study was terminated prior to initiation of Phase II.
All patients will receive sunitinib at a dose of 50 mg.
- Phase 1: Safety and tolerability of varlilumab and varlilumab in combination with sunitinib as measured by incidence of drug related adverse events (AEs), serious drug related AEs, dose-limiting toxicities and laboratory test abnormalities. [ Time Frame: Safety follow-up is 100 days from last study drug dose. ]
