Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: tart of the treatment until disease progression/recurrence (taking as reference for progressive disease the smallest measurements recorded since the treatment started up to 21 Months ]
    Percent of patients who achieve overall response (CR or PR) by RECIST 1.1 will be summarized with 80% two-sided exact binomial confidence intervals (CI)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: first documentation of response, to the earlier of the first documentation of disease progression or death from any cause, and calculated for patients with a best confirmed response of CR up to 21 Months ]
    will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier, for all patients and by histology subtypes. M

  2. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: trial treatment start to the earlier of progression or death due to any cause per investigator assessment. Participants alive without disease progression are censored at date of last disease evaluation up to 21 Months ]
    the method of Kaplan-Meier, for all patients and by histology subtypes evaluation.

  3. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: from trial treatment start to death due to any cause or censored at date last known alive up to 21 Months ]
    the method of Kaplan-Meier, for all patients and by histology subtypes

  4. "Number of Participants with TreatmentRelated Adverse Events as Assessed by CTCAE version 5. [ Time Frame: Baseline, day 1 of every cycle (21 days for first 4 cycles and then 28 days for each cycle tehreafter) and End of Treatment up 21 months ]
    For toxicity reporting, all adverse events will be graded and analyzed using CTCAE version 5.

  5. Quality of life- FKSI-19 Scale [ Time Frame: 12 weeks for the first assessment, then every 8 weeks (+/- 7 days) for the first 6 months. Then take place every 12 weeks (+/- 7 days) ]
    The Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Kidney Symptom (FKSI-19) is a 19 item questionnaire with each item scored on a scale of 0-4 for a total score of 0-76 with higher scores indicating fewer symptom

  6. Quality of life-BFI Questionaire [ Time Frame: 2 weeks for the first assessment, then every 8 weeks (+/- 7 days) for the first 6 months. Then take place every 12 weeks (+/- 7 days) ]

    The Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI) is a 9-item questionnaire with each item scored on a scale of 0-10.

    Scores are categorized as mild (1-3), moderate (4-6), or severe (7-10). A global fatigue score can be found by averaging the score obtained on each test item completed


  7. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: defined as the percentage of patients with partial (PR) or complete response (CR) as best overall response according to RECIST 1.1 by investigator assessment up to 21 Months ]
    ORR by RECIST 1.1 according to histology subtypes (Papillary RCC versus other histology types) will be summarized with 80% two-sided exact CIs.
