The goal of this clinical research study is learn if carfilzomib can help control kidney cancer. The safety of this drug will also be studied.
Carfilzomib is designed to block cancer cells from repairing themselves. If the cancer cells cannot repair themselves, this may cause them to die.
||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase II Study of Carfilzomib in Patients With Refractory Renal Cell Carcinoma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Progression free survival defined as time from enrollment to progression or death, whichever comes first. Progression defined according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1. Any patients who are alive and free of disease at time of analysis censored at date of most recent tumor assessment. Response defined as complete response or partial response by RECIST. Overall survival defined as time from enrollment to death, regardless of cause. Patients who are alive at time of analysis censored on date they were last in contact with study personnel.
Secondary Outcome Measures:

| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||October 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Patients receive Carfilzomib at dose of 20 mg/m2 over 30 minutes by vein infusion on Days 1 and 2 and a dose of 56 mg/m2 over 30 minutes by vein infusion on Days 8, 9, 15, and 16 of each 4 week cycle.
20 mg/m2 over 30 minutes by vein infusion on Days 1 and 2 and a dose of 56 mg/m2 over 30 minutes by vein infusion on Days 8, 9, 15, and 16 of each 4 week cycle.

- Platelet count >/= 50 × 10^9/L; Patients with an ECOG performance status of 2 at study entry must have a platelet count >/= 100 × 10^9/L
- Creatinine clearance (CrCl) >/= 30 mL/minute, either measured or calculated using a standard formula (eg, Cockcroft and Gault)
- Written informed consent in accordance with federal, local, and institutional guidelines.
- Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must agree to ongoing pregnancy testing and to practice contraception during the study and for a period of 6 weeks after you stop receiving the study drug

- Known human immunodeficiency virus infection
- Active hepatitis B or C infection
- Unstable angina or myocardial infarction within 4 months prior to beginning study treatment, NYHA Class III or IV heart failure, uncontrolled angina, history of severe coronary artery disease, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, sick sinus syndrome, or electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia or Grade 3 conduction system abnormalities unless subject has a pacemaker

- Nonhematologic malignancy within the past 2 years with the exception of a) adequately treated basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell skin cancer, or thyroid cancer; b) carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast; c) prostate cancer of Gleason Grade 6 or less with stable prostate-specific antigen levels; or d) cancer considered cured by surgical resection or unlikely to impact survival during the duration of the study, such as localized transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder or benign tumors of the adrenal or pancreas
- Significant neuropathy (Grades 3-4, or Grade 2 with pain) within 14 days prior to beginning study treatment
- Known history of allergy to Captisol® (a cyclodextrin derivative used to solubilize carfilzomib)
- Contraindication to any of the required concomitant drugs or supportive treatments, including hypersensitivity to all anticoagulation and antiplatelet options, antiviral drugs, or intolerance to hydration due to preexisting pulmonary or cardiac impairment
