Clinical Trial Title
A Randomized Phase III Trial Of Interferon Alfa-2B Or Interferon Alfa-2B Plus Bevacizumab In Patients With Advanced Renal Carcinoma
Trial Summary and Conditions
RATIONALE: Biological therapies, such as interferon alfa-2b, may interfere with the growth of tumor cells. Bevacizumab may stop the growth of tumor cells by stopping blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether interferon alfa-2b is more effective with or without bevacizumab in treating advanced renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer). PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying interferon alfa-2b and bevacizumab to see how well they work compared to interferon alfa-2b alone in treating patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.
Control and experimental arm data files include data on safety, efficacy, demographics, etc. See the data dictionary provided for more details.
Primary: To compare the overall survival for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients receiving initial systemic therapy with interferon alfa-2b plus bevacizumab or interferon alfa-2b alone. Secondary: To compare the time to disease progression and objective response rates for advanced RCC patients receiving initial systemic therapy interferon alfa-2b plus bevacizumab or interferon alfa-2b alone. To determine the toxicity of interferon alfa-2b plus bevacizumab.
Primary Outcome Measures: Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ] Secondary Outcome Measures: Time to progression [ Time Frame: q 3 cycles ] Toxicity [ Time Frame: q cycle ]
