  Purpose

RATIONALE: Sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well sunitinib malate works in treating patients with kidney cancer.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To determine whether a link exists between the effectiveness of therapy with sunitinib malate and development of blood biomarkers, specifically the angiogenic factors VEGF and interleukin-8 (IL-8), in patients with kidney cancer.

Secondary

  • To evaluate the link between the time to progression and the development of VEGF and IL-8 blood levels in these patients.
  • To evaluate the link between VEGF and IL-8 blood levels and disease-free survival of these patients after 3, 6, 9, and 12 months of treatment.
  • To evaluate the link between VEGF and IL-8 blood levels and overall survival of these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral sunitinib malate once daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 6 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Blood samples are collected at baseline and then every 6 weeks for pharmacokinetic analysis.
