 (submitted: October 26, 2017)
Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 21, 2018)
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the time from treatment initiation to death from any cause.
  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Progression-free Survival (PFS) is defined as the time from treatment initiation to the first date of objectively determined progressive disease (PD) according to the RECIST v1.1 or death from any cause, whichever occurred first.
  • Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Disease Control Rate (DCR) is defined as the percentage of patients who have achieved partial response (PR), complete response (CR) or stable disease (SD) according to the RECIST v1.1.
  • Safety profile as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4.03 summarized by type, frequency, and severity. [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Safety profile as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4.03 summarized by type, frequency, and severity.
  • Health-related Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Change from baseline in the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) v3. The EORTC QLQ-C30 includes five functional scales, three symptom scales, a global health status / QoL scale, and six single items. All of the scales and single-item measures range from 0 to 100. High score for a functional scale represents a high / healthy level of functioning. High score for the global health status / QoL represents a high QoL. High score for a symptom scale / item represents a high level of symptomatology / problems. Scoring these scales include the following steps:
    1. Estimate the average of the items that contribute to the scale (the raw score).
    2. Use the linear transformation to standardise the raw score, so that scores range from 0 to 100; a higher score represents a higher ("better") level of functioning, or a higher ("worse") level of symptoms.
  • Health-related Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Change from baseline in the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Kidney Symptom Index - 15.
  • Disease-related Stress (DRS) [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Change from baseline in the 10-point Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). The PSS is a validated psychological tool for assessing the perception of stress. Patient responses to all of the 10 questions present in the PSS questionnaire range from 0 to 4. To obtain a total result:
    1. Reverse scores for questions 4, 5, 7, and 8.
    2. Add up scores for each question to get a total result. Individual total scores range from 0 to 40. Higher scores indicate higher perceived stress.
  • Tumour tissue and serum biomarkers status [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months ]
    Descriptive statistics of selected biomarkers from analysis of patient samples.

  • Drug: Propranolol
    Propranolol will be administered orally at a starting dose of 40 mg (one tablet) two times a day (total daily dose of 80 mg). In case of acceptable safety profile, the dose may be increased to 80 mg (two tablets) two times a day (total daily dose of 160 mg) or farther to 80 mg (two tablets) three times a day (total daily dose of 240 mg).
