Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of fenretinide in treating patients who have advanced kidney cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase Two Study Of Fenretinide In Renal Cell Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||December 2000|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2005|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the response rate of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma treated with fenretinide.
- Determine progression-free and overall survival of this patient population treated with this drug.
- Determine the quantitative and qualitative toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral fenretinide twice a day for 7 days. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 18-35 patients will be accrued for this study within 9-21 months.
